Spring Breakers

Watched this again because I kept flip flopping over what I thought about it. I'm still not sure what I think about Harmony Korine overall but some bits here (the Britney Spears song at the piano, the bit when Alien's showing off his 'shit', the scene at the pool hall) are amazing. It's James Franco who saves it for me.

A bit aimless, but all the elements are working in the film's favor. No complaint I can lodge against this one is meaningful enough to really lower my estimation of it.

7.5/10

One flaw though, the music is annoying at times.

In posting this, I would truly appreciate it if certain posters who found mirth in the deaths of more than 160 people in a fire as their response to an earlier thread of mine kindly excuse themselves from responding to this post of mine.

The last movie I saw was "Serpico". I've long been familiar with his story, but I've never before seen the film until last night. It was like half the film was shot inside my own skull, faithfully representing New York City as she was when I first fell in love with her, rather than as she is now. Man, did it bring back memories!

To those who made the film:

Your communication skills are phenomenal.
You'll blend in very well with this forum. Carry on.

My communication skills are, indeed, quite adequate, to say the least, as they've impelled you to vouchsafe the name of the film to which you've referred.

Valentino: The Last Emperor

Great documentary about Valentino's final show before retiring. I have no practical interest in fashion but I am fascinated with the world it creates for itself, the way it seems completely disengaged with anything outside. Watching the scenes here with Valentino talking to Karl Lagerfeld about what they represent is a view into a totally parallel universe. Great stuff, and perversely inspiring.

I don't dislike it and I prefer it to everything he did afterwards but it increasingly feels to me like the beginning of his decline rather than the end of his heyday.

As much as I love "Hairspray", I think I'd have to agree with you there. Certainly everything he did afterwards - as fun as it can be at times - really isn't a patch on his earlier work at all.

As much as I appreciate other people liking this one, I simply can't work up the enthusiasm to have to sit through it again to give it another go. And the sci-fi element could have been much better put across, too, I feel.



I loved, loved "Under the Skin". I don't kow if the metaphors are THAT deep... really it was just Glazer paring down a sci-fi novel into its base form: alien sent to earth to destry/emulate human beings and ends up sympathizing and trying to be one. This has been the staple of sci-fi for years. The music... zombie-like performances and especially the rationalization of Johansson's "handlers" being these motorcycle meat heads was pretty amazing IMO. And Glazer has a perfect sense of mise-en-scene. Just watch the scene where the alien picks up one "unique" traveler, and the red blinking tail light just barely registers his face outside the van and we realize something is not right. Interesting this is basically the impetus that sort of forces Johansson's alien charachter to change her mind about her mission.
