funny you mention kiarostami i couldn't help but be reminded of certified copy.
This has got to be one of the best horror films I've ever seen. The subversiveness of it all, the sense of humour, the old-school sfx, the dialogue, that camera work, the soundtrack. It's a deservedly cult classic.
Best thing about films is when you see your loved ones portrayed on screen. It's amazing when you get to think or feel 'that's X, alright'. That fade to white is amazing, almost Hanekian in its boldness.The part where the girl reads the journal reminded me of this friend I adore (&her writing too)That's pretty rare, when art emulates your particular life mimicking it to perfection. I wish I had directed this. It's <3
aha this still is amazing. go asia! go asia! licky licky!
George Lucas' son (for what it's worth). Felt very Star Wars (for the better and for the worse). Some amazing sequences throughout but he does this 'by the numbers' film-making that I just cannot like, let alone love. He i's effective but he lacks the brilliance or the artistic edge. I've seen worse. He's an ok director and he'll keep being one. Could be worse tho. Benedict is a monster of an actor, that voice is <3
Rohmer does this better. She got annoying over the years. I get them tho (their spouse complaints) - the couple. Too many gender stuff was off-topical. Too many pseudo-savvy life insights. All in all, I disliked it. Dialogue was relentless in a bad way. That sequence on the car woulda been great done by Kiarostami but I felt it dragged on and on, pointlessly. I doubt she was convinced by his last speech too tho. :(
Cried from laughter. Galifianakis and Jeong are amazing. True geniuses.
That still looks amazing. I have to see this.
"Daniel Lugo: [to a little boy] Don't eyeball me! I've seen your mother driving up and down these streets looking at me! I'll be your stepfather in about a week! //'*whalberg with a straight face and pissed off look* '(what) the hell you're doin' on the ground? '(well) that hurt', 'it's supposed to hurt, it's called pain and gain Russy/Rusty don't be a lil' bitch!": LMFAO
I fail to see how the super confident 'fool' is a reject too, but maybe that's just me.
Her eyes are so sarcastic.
"His birth name is really Gustave K/Vern. K/vern stands, in old Breton graphy, for 'Ker'Vern. He had his driver's license withheld for a few months because computers couldn't handle the slash sign. ": from IMDb's Trivia section.
I don't get the hate. Maybe religion is a good thing after all and making a film about religion being a tool used to enslave millions, now that's dead wrong. People: he's a comedian acting on a film.
Thomas nearly suffocated darn it but what a brilliant video, I love when his lazy eye twitches.
the woman on the still looks a lot like kim gordon from Sonic Youth
yay this is gonna premiere here.
"Olympus Has Fallen' (2013): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2302755/?ref_=sr_1
the trailer is hilarious. can't wait for the actual film
Cinéma de papa sans doute. Trop lourd et trop sérieux. Domage car Gabin et Desailly et surtout Brasseur sont épatants mais il y a trop de poids. C'est trop de trop.
"Capitu" (1968): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0198355/
I love his quote.
he'll be always tony soprano to me. actually tony would say that. get the fuck outta here ;)
so weird but in a good way. uma was mesmerizing back then. those angel wings and that feminist ranch was awesome. hurt as a queen is hilarious.
The book by Tom Robbins is well worth searching out. He was to the seventies/early eighties what Will Self or Chuck Palaniuk is today. To me Gus' career is three chapters. One the early truly indie films Mala Noche and the incredible My Own Private Idaho. Second the wandering in the desert of mini majors which may have made him some cash but lacked the artistic respect many still gave him. Finally the modern Van Zant which started with Elephant, Last Days etc. Skip the middle enjoy the first and third.
i'd had a 4th chapter there. your opinion on 'milk', 'restless' and 'promised land' (i think the first and the last are utter crap and i loved the middle one). i'll try and find the book then, thank you. don't know who is will self tho. and isn't Palaniuk more 90's? And what is your favourite chapter? I mean the third one includes "gerry", "elephant", "last days" and "paranoid park". that one is, i think, my favorite chapter.
this on screen is an explosion.
I love this guy so much. He's got such an intense look.
did anyone actually loved LOVED this or am I the only one to have done so?
detail? long and lovely and loveable french dialogue not since Godard have I heard such loving words in french and in an american film? wow wow wow. you will. trust me. it premiered here a week ago, i'm so gonna watch it until it leaves the theatrers one time per day. my ritual. it's worth it. i'm gonna know those dialogues by heart. i tell you.
"Sonnenstrahl" (1933): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0024600/
Blew my mind. Another masterpiece. Thorough review to follow. I was so scared it might suck but when I saw the first shots and the way ben affleck remained so many minutes dead silent or quietly mumbling or whispering I told to myself 'welcome back sensei'. serisouly.
I wanna SEE this so bad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JxVm2_ojQtk
