4 (Chetyre) Reviews
-well, it's now been 3 weeks since i watched something this fucked up,so i guess it was time, and ofcourse i loved every minute of it~!!
Quite young thing, make an impression it wasn't scripted or directed at all, but was made as it's going on, as a stream of consciousness withought any idea what they will find after finishing it.
The nubmer 4 seems to have some great meaning for this movie. It is seen in many places and even talked about. But from what I can tell it goes nowhere. It is a cul-de-sac. It leads you in, and you end up exiting where you entered. This may be on purpose, of course.
This film, however, was too much like David Lynch and less like Tarkovsky.
But it's more visualy disterbing as to what life realy is, what separates us from loonies, and what is a loonie, what is life? Who's right who's wrong? What is a life style? Do people who lead this delisuonal life style hate it? Do the realize it?
Check for yourself this movie is shot in the most breath taking locations, and i'm not talking about beautiful landscapes either.
[font=Century Gothic]"4" is a strange, haunting movie about identity - about who we are, what we could become and what we wish we were. On a larger scale, it is also concerned with national identity. The movie is very talky in spots but it is fascinating, nonetheless. It does go on a bit too long, though.[/font]
So, yeah. Everything happens in fours. Four dogs. Four dolls. Four giant jackhammers. Four snowplows. Four butt cheeks. Four breasts.
Four people in a bar, talking bullshit.
Then it gets weird. Four sisters, quadruplets. One is dead. She was a dollmaker. There are a bunch of old ladies in babushkas. All with toothless grins and photogenically wrinkled faces. They get drunk and sing and expose their breasts. This goes on for too long and becomes disturbing.
