i liked how he used the flashes of light, like a visual static when tuning a radio. great cinematography.
I was just about to say how this seemed like something I’d seen in a dozen bad film student films and it seemed like a cliche. I guess I see now a little bit of why he might have used the technique though.
The Way You Wanted Me I thought this was a great film with a brilliant performance from the leading lady but they’re such familiar themes to me, was reminded of The Mother and the Whore, Brides of Christ, Somerset’s Maugham’s Rain, Breaking the Waves, Anna Karenina, Sophie in Razor’s Edge,.the Picture of Dorian Gray, Madam Bovary etc…
I got this The Docks of New York vibe that I liked a lot.
as in, did he mean to convey liberation or the final closing of the jaws of evil by that scene,/i>
Just showing that the only joys she gets are temporary and not of substance. In fact they are linked to what is bringing her down.
this Cup is a great program and those persons who found the films and made copies available to stream in flash (or download) deserve many props. I’ve looked for some of these titles for years, and others I’ve never even heard mentioned, intensifying surprises I’ll not soon forget.
Oh I suppose I should get my vote in

The winner is:
Our land, our land, our Fatherland!
Ring out, dear word, oh sound!
No rising hill, or mountain grand,
No sloping dale, no northern strand,
There is, more loved, to be found,
Than this — our fathers’ ground.
Thy blossom, hidden now from sight,
Shall burst its bud ere long.
Lo! from our love, shall rise aright,
Thy sun, thy hope, thy joy, thy light,
And higher, once, more full and strong,
Shall ring Our Country’s song.
didn’t care for the film at all, but i commend it’s win. congrats Finland.
