Good Bad Films about 5 years ago
OMG, I have to say that the best worst movie ever for me is Mamma Mia…. It’s a mistake in every aspect (WHAT IS THAT CINEMATOGRAPHY?? terrible!!!) but it is so ridiculously entertaining…..
New to The Auteurs? You Belong Here about 5 years ago
i was reading my emails during work and the criterion newsletter introduced me to the auteurs. I must say i’m already addicted to it as almost everybody else.
and i am currently working in a small film distributor in brazil (oh yeah….)
Tropical Malady about 5 years ago
There was an “Extreme Orient Film Exhibition” in which they screened filmmakers such as Weerasethakul, Pen-Ek Ratanaruang, Yu Liu kai, Hou Hsiao Hsien and so on. I think Hou Hsiao Hsien is a genius so don’t consider him for what I’ll say next..
After a weekend immersed in those movies, I have to say that no one struck me more than the Tropical Malady. It was an overwhelming experience, very sensitive but not sentimental at all. Then I watched Blissfully Yours…. And I got a little disappointed..
Best Musicians Turned "Actors" about 5 years ago
“Faye Wong in Chungking Express” – i had no idea she was a singer! that is a good performance then….
now, continuing with Kar Wai, Norah Jones in My Blueberry Nights, to me, didn’t work at all. Cat Power, on the other hand, gives a hella good performance during the three minutes she appears on screen – though i’m a little bit suspect when it comes to Chan Marshall ;)
Remake? about 5 years ago
if that’s true, I’ll quote Bowie:
“i’m afraid of americans”
KING SHOT (2009) over 3 years ago
Any news concerning King Shot?! I’ve just checked IMDB and the movie vanished from it… Instead, in Jodorowsky’s profile there is a new movie in production: “Abel Cain”….
