Not much to say. Big movie geek. I watch movies and write screenplays in my spare time (of which there is very little between work and school). Also, I love Nick Frost. What, you guessed that already?
For a glance at my collection:
Here's how I rate things:
5 stars: Amazing
4 1/2: Pretty damn close to amazing
4: Really, really good
3 1/2: I really liked it
3: Pretty good
2 1/2: Not bad, but not really good either
2: Had some moments, but not enough
1 1/2: Maybe had a moment, otherwise awful
1/2: Are you kiddin me with this?
Not interested/No stars: Must be destroyed
Haunting, perverse, yet strikingly artistic portrait of two men in love. Needless to say, this film takes role playing to a depraved level, yet there is a weird sort of beauty to the relationship these two share. Not for, well, just about anyone, this is one film that truly challenges the viewer to stay watching. While I found it sort of intriguing, ultimately it's a pointless reconstruction of the dissection and consumption of a human being, based on the true account of Armin Meiwes and Bernd Brandes. Of note, the atmospheric soundtrack. Excellent stuff, with contributions by J.G. "Foetus" Thirlwell, that truly creates the oppressively claustrophobic feel of the film. Recommended to those wanting to challenge every of their sensibilities.
Has Larry Clark finally moved past gratuitous underage sex and close up shots of teenage crotches? Well, not entirely, but I have to say this is the least exploitative film I have seen come from Mr. Clark, and I'll be damned, I liked it. Beneath the amateur acting and cinema verite style of the whole outing, there were some good, strong points made about classism and racism in our society, which I found intriguing. Worth a look for those that can endure a Larry Clark film; definitely his best. Also, great punk soundtrack, for those into that aspect of it.
