I think it is a little bit deeper then facism is bad though and I can watch it quite a few times and take different meanings out of it, but maybe thats just me.
Grizzly Man - A really touching documentry on a bizzare man who lived with bears and eventually got killed by one of them, it really does paint this picture of a really deeply troubled man trying to escape the world of people finding solace in bears and how this warped his view over time. Quite touching, funny, creepy, beutiful, and all in all stays with you for quite some time. I'm really loving Werner Herzog.
The Japanese have been pumping that story for years. It's only recently, however, that the likes of Edgar Wright and Kevin Smith and Judd Apatow have picked up on this.
Yeah actually, you may not like it but actually it is part of the story so Cera was actually perfect casting lol
He really was. It's not made as apparent in the film, but he really is a jerk in the graphic novels. It's why him and Ramona work (or do they? I choose to believe they do) because they're both kinda jerks.
Whatever, it's still a great film. That ending is magnificent regardless.
You cant really damn a director for a technique pretty much every film is doing now a days.
Picked up 投名状 (The Warlords) earlier today for a paltry sum. It's one of those movies that comes up every now then in discussions about Chinese and Hong Kong movies, usually in a positive context, but one that I haven't yet seen - probably because there was a tidal wave of mass-scale historic action movies from China a few years ago, some better than others, and this one - despite it's good cast - just slipped by. In any case, I'm curious to see how it turns out.
Recently had a chance to see 暗いところで待ち合わせ (Waiting in the Dark). 田中麗奈 (Rena Tanaka) and 陳柏霖 (Bo-lin Chen) both do a good job portraying their respective main characters. 井川遥 (Haruka Igawa) also has a small part in this movie. The story itself is quite interesting; a person is pushed on to the tracks at a small railway station, and a blind girl who lives near the station starts to suspect there is a second person in the house. Small events on the sideline turn out to be important, making the somewhat curious conclusion quite acceptable.
I find adaptations hard to gauge because i have been on both sides where i was dissapointed in a film adaptation not being close to the book and not really caring about some films not being close to the book because i hadnt read it.
I watched Chronicle this weekend, it's the one where some male American teenagers get superpowers, and it does that thing with the wobbly camera to make it seem realistic or something. It was good though, well done effects, doesn't pull its punches and it means there's no need for that awful sounding live action Akira remake.
