Where did you see this? Luckily, I'm not expecting a follow=up to Last Life... but it does sound like a similar film. I really want to see this.
Feeling in the minority here, but I was kinda disappointed in this movie. Absolutely gorgeous to look at, quirky, etc, but I feel like something was missing.
Thought it was pretty scary until the last part. Got too cheesy and confusing, imo. What's the deal with the red-faced guy in his lair listening to Tiny Tim? Why the stupid twist ending? So obviously made to have a sequel when it doesn't need one.
The story itself made no goddamn sense, but I am so in love with all the deep colors and patterns in this movie.
Stupid movie. Not even that ~disturbing~, but tries way too hard.
Did not do the book justice. Filmed beautifully but something was lost in this adaptation.
This is basically my kind of movie: simple and just about regular lives. I'd expected more from it and now that I've watched it I really wish it had focused more on Hajime's life (partly because I'm a huge Tadanobu Asano fan, but also because something about trains is so attractive to me). Overall a nice, calm film.
I went in to this assuming that it was a follow-up to Last Life in the Universe. It isn't, so I was a bit disappointed; however I think this is a really beautiful film. The story can be a bit confusing but it draws your attention regardless, and Doyle's cinematographic style is gorgeous as usual.
Oh god this movie was so terrible. The first two are cheesy and not the best but still have their redeeming moments. This was just awful. There was nothing scary about it at all, and did not seem to properly grasp the feeling or idea behind the others. Though the first two do have different directors they still seem to go together-- this one just doesn't fit and isn't a good addition to the series.
I really like this version much better than Kubrick's.. I feel like this captured the characters better, and the overall feeling. I've sorta fallen in love with Jeremy Iron's version of Humbert. (..."he smiles like a little boy in a candy store." yes!)
I actually really enjoyed this film, my absurd love for Leo aside. Something about it really hit home for me; I can completely relate to April's character. I guess I like movies with dreary, depressing, and hopeless outlooks. The ending was predictable, but other than that I can't find much wrong with this movie.
