FOOTNOTE

 


the trailer i saw made it look like it was a comedy, but this is definitely a drama. yes, a little funny at times, but not a comedy-- a drama.

those familiar with the perils of academia should definitely check it out. yes yes, it's funny too. but it's a drama.

Olympus has Fallen

Weird that this should be released at almost the exact same time as White House Down; they're almost the same film. I probably preferred White House Down but maybe only because I saw that one first.

 


Behind the Candelabra

I liked it but it seemed to lack any kind of interesting story. The acting is great though, with Rob Lowe's plastic surgeon probably stealing the whole movie.

@demonraill666 - just checked out "White House Down", and think I may well give that one a go. Sound like top-notch entertainment, if nothing else!

I really enjoyed "Behind The Candelabra" too, even as you say, the story is somewhat light in this one. With you too on the Rob Lowe acting tip too, though Douglas definitely acquits himself well here. You've also just reminded me of the time when John Waters was introduced to Liberace: "I didn't know whether to laugh or scream. He's "Mr Sardonicus" for real".

lars von trier's "antichrist"

 


i realized the other day that i had lost touch with his work after "dogville" and decided to catch up so i've been picking up stuff here and there (the other day i saw his "medea").

i generally dislike horror movies but i thought this one was great. charlotte gainsbourg was particularly brilliant. dafoe, sure, he's always good, but she, whom i had only seen in a goofy gondry movie, was tremendous here.

i really really loved the camera work in this film. that's one thing LVT does always very well-- his images are excellent, and you can see that even in worn-out vhs transfers of his medea. here there's all kinds of great stuff. teh color palette is cold and fantastic. the slow motion shots in black and white and gorgeous. there are some handheld shots in which parts of the image distort as the camera moves-- was that a lens, a computer effect, some kinf of accident? either way i thought it was awesome and went great with the action. the slow motion sequences, the music-- everything, really, was great. some moods/moments/shots reminded me a bit of his ghost-infested swamp from "kingdom hospital" (his version, not the american remake).

this stuff is really good. thoroughly satisfying. not sure how to make "sense" of the story but i dreamed like crazy about it and overslept something like 2 hours thanks to it. so hell yes i recommend it.

Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.


i don't normally like or go for any Jubb Apatow movies but this shit is too funny and a mindless favorite. everything is perfectly executed for a dumb mainstream comedy. sure beats Step Bros.

Salt of the Earth. directed and written by members of the so-called Hollywood Ten (yes, Virginia, the US does have political prisoners).

So ironic that after beating fascism in WW2 the US then created a House Unamerican Activities Committee, even more so that Senator McCarthy was a morphine addict whose narcotics were provided by FBI Director Hoover.

Think about that for a few minutes.

The Insider

A great film. Easy to forget it's by Michael Mann but his trademark seriousness and control are all over it. A rare understated (these days) performance by Pacino. If only DeNiro had his sense of quality control.

Right up there next to Near Dark for my preferred vampire movies now.

YOU WILL MEET A TALL DARK STRANGER - even when woody allen doesn't produce his best work, it's still more entertaining than most shit out there. good cast, good story, good dialogue, good fun--- and yes, not his best work by any means, the screenplay feels a bit rushed, but still better than the scorpion curse or whatever the fuck that was.

 

REPO MAN - many years after i fist saw this (some time in the 90s) i just found out this is a pretty good comedy, and i laughed my ass off watching. this is an improvement over the first time i saw it, when someone told me it was going to be some sort of revolutionary shit, and i was disappointed. but this is just a b-movie comedy, and a pretty good one at that, and should be enjoyed for what it is. also watched the missing scenes, and some of them should have been included in a director's cut or something.

 

12 YEARS A SLAVE - holy fucking shit. this was really heavy, but excellent.

Same for me. When I first saw it when it was released I was lead to believe it'd be some life changing experience. It wasn't. I didn't get it until much later on when I just watched it for the sake of it and realised it's a great comedy. No more no less.

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.

One flaw though, the music is annoying at times.
