The Limits of Control

7/10

I saw the tail end of this some time back, and was intrigued enough that I made a note to myself to check it out if it was ever on again, to see if it made more sense as a whole. Well, it was on again, and yeah, it made more sense but still left you in the dark as to the motive behind this man's journey/mission/assignment. But I suppose it's not really as important WHY he's doing it as much as it is that he's doing it. Since you're with the main character nearly the whole time and every other characters' only real purpose seems to be in guiding him to his "target", it gives the film a very linear feel. I liked how at the end, he changes into a completely different outfit, showing either he's free of the "control" his employer had over him, or that the "Lone Man" is as much a character to the Lone Man himself as he is to the audience. I guess I'd watch it again, but only if I'm in the mood for something slow. Maybe I'm just not experienced with minimalist films. It had a cool soundtrack, though (Boris is heavily featured).

Out of the Blue (8/10)

This should be pretty cringeworthy but really is a great film. A decent shout for the best punk-associated/influenced film ever. Atsonic's a big fan I think.

Un Chien Andalou just may be the pinnacle of what is good film. I don't think I've ever seen 15 minutes of footage define the true power of celluloid as finely as this one right here. People always jump right to the eye-cutting scene when discussing this flick, but really - there's so much more to it than that. I think that gets missed these days.

A classic with good reason, and this was my first time watching it on a non-computer monitor (thanks Netflix Wii).

And to think that THIS was made in 1929! Citizen Kane - eat your heart out.


 


Suzuki is incredible! I was continually wowed throughout my entire viewing. This film definitely seems to be more Leone-inspired than Branded to Kill, a lot of similar music queues and wide shots. Beautiful use of color throughout, and clever dialogue. I really dug it - maybe not as much as Branded to Kill - but I had a total blast!

Damn, I would rep but if it would let me. Both of those movies are ace in my opinion. Un Chien Andalou is so incredible. I'm sure its critics would dismiss it as just an art film, and it is that, but those 15 minutes of film have inspired so many filmmakers. Everyone from David Lynch to pretty much every horror film ever made. You have to consider that its a silent film, that only has its images to grab you, and it certainly does that.

"Somewhere" It wants to have traces of "Lost in Translation" but doesn't quite reach that. Not a terrible movie, but neither a great one either. Sort of mediocore.

Yeah, I think the real power of it comes in the editing. Just the way that some of those images are juxtaposed against each other creates so much energy between the two transitioning frames. I think that's what keeps it so riveting, even to this day.

I agree. Not a terrible movie but by no means a particularly good one, either. I like the overall dreamlike feel that's always there in S Coppola's films but she doesn't quite manage to turn that mood into anything that interesting in Somewhere. Still better than most of what's being made at the moment, though.

What a turd. Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alec Baldwin have the chemistry of a vibrant rose and a rotting dead horse sizzling on the side of the road. The writing will make you want to shoot yourself in the face.

At least Sarah is a goddess! At least there's that.
