The expressions in the editing and obviously the cinematography as well as that god damn score met with like near fucking perfect harmony. The acting did the same thing. But that editing. The choices made in terms of mashing scenes together so violently was incredible. A damn wonderful editing. oh. Oh.
Just had a wonderful reunion with Jackson's "Heavenly Creatures". A rather disturbing film about two emotionally unstable girls, bound by a fascination for the macabre. It’s visually stunning, and the contrast between the actual story and their dream world is masterfully balanced and developed through out the film. Five stars and thumbs up for this heavenly film!
Maybe it's just me but It felt as if 80% of this film consisted of the two girls running around, flapping their arms and screaming. I had a ringing sound in my ears for hours long after this film ended.
Juliet is now a semi-obscure LDS fiction writer named Anne Perry. Pauline lives as a recluse in Scotland. They never met again. I wish Jackson could make another movie like this again. It's so intimate and beautiful, and there's just something hypnotic and fascinating about it. It isn't perfect, but damn, is it engaging.
Que trabajo magnífico de Jackson. El aspecto visual y rítmico de la película me ganó por completo, y la perversidad detrás del mundo mágico de estas dos niñas terminó por enamorarme. Quien diría que las Lynskey acabaría en Two and a Half Men. Su talento da para mucho, mucho más. Winslet impecable. All in all una película excelente.
It is hard to believe that the same person who made this movie also made the sonolent Lord of the Rings and the awful The lovely bones. Heavenly Creatures was a fluke in his carerr.
An exceptional film about friendship and the power of love. I'm not kidding. Yeah, it also involves a murder but the important part is the friendship. The really bizarre part is that it's based on a true story. Plus, there's a plasticine Mario Lanza. My favorite Peter Jackson film ever.
