Mifune's Last Song (Mifune) (Mifunes sidste sang) Reviews
The King is Alive: I'm not sure what the worst Dogme films I've seen is, but it's either The King is Alive of Italian for Beginners. I haven't seen Italian for Beginners since it was in theatres, and before I really knew much about Dogme, so I'm going to have to see it again, and get back to you on which is worse, because I'm thinking I'll like Italian for Beginners much more now, since I didn't really like it back then. The King is Alive is about a bunch of people who get stranded out in the middle of the desert, and to pass the time they start doing a production of King Lear. It's a fairly interesting premise, but not so much of an interesting film. It's a Danish Dogme film, but it's in English, which I didn't know, and has Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Janet McTeer. It wasn't a bad film, just not anything great.
The Great White of Lambarene: A film from Camaroon The Great White of Lambarene about a man who lives in, you guessed it, Lambarene, and gives medicine and treat the people of the poor African town with their medical problems. It was pretty good, but the acting was laughably bad at times.
Street of Shame: Street of Shame was my first Kenju Mizoguchi films, and I can say that I'd really like to see more of his work. Kurosawa has said Mizoguchi is the greatest Japanese filmmaker, and his biggest influence, and Street of Shame was list last film before he died, about prostitutes in the red light district of Tokyo, and the film gets into why they're all prostituting themselves, and how it's pretty much the only way to survive. It was great drama, and I watched it on VHS with the shittiest of quality, so I was a little surprised I was able to enjoy it so much.
Earth: Earth is seriously one of the worst movies ever. It's a Ukrainian silent film about a town that gets a tractor or some shit like that, I already forgot, but it was so fucking boring. I really wanted to shoot myself while I was watching it. Luckily, it was only like an hour and ten minutes. I was seriously starting to get really crazy.
Bad Taste: Bad Taste was fucking awesome! It's Peter Jackson's directorial debut, and great film if you're into cheesy gore films. It's about a group of like british FBI-ish agents who go to a town to looking into some supposed aliens that crashed, and they find them, and stuff. And there is killing, and gore, and it's a great time!
-And a french film called Comme Elle Respire. Not in RT. Give it an eight.
-And a french film that i already forgot the name of. Bunch of schoolkids go on a skiing trip. One of them is a bed-wetter who sees nightmares and stuff. Very psychological. Anyone know this one? I give it a nine.
Damn I should've kept a list of the films I've seen lately. So many I'm forgetting.
