Eyes of Laura Mars
4 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

An American giallo about a controversial fashion photographer who became a sensation over her depiction of violence and death in her photoshoots. However, someone who was obsessive over her began killing her friends, relatives and ex lovers in the fashion of the deaths depicted on her photos. Laura unfortunately was able to see through the eyes of the killer, will she find out who her killer was?

I could see the effort but it was no where nearly innovative enough to entertain me. I like the soundtrack though and it was possibly the only redeeming factor. It was interesting to see Tommy Lee Jones at such a young age. However, it the Laura's visions could have been better filmed, it might have stimulated my interest more. I think it requires more gore and graphic violence to be truly a giallo film, but it was a good attempt anyway.

Moms' Night Out
4 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I was really looking forward to the film. It had a good premise. But as soon as the film started I began to cringe. The narration was badly written, each one of the character was really generic, the acting was nightmarish, the script uneven. It made you feel good but was way to predictable and preposterous. It may be good for Christian viewers but I personally did not enjoy this film at all.

Mary and Max
Mary and Max (2009)
5 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Mary and Max is by far the best clay animation film I've ever seen. Mary and Max were two unlikely pen pals. Mary was an 8 year old girl who has a birthmark with the colour of poo on her forehead, her family weren't any better. Her mother was an alcoholic kleptomaniac who offered little comfort to her; her father was always busy at work with a strange interest in taxidermy of birds. Max was an obese, middle aged, Jewish man with Asperger's syndrome. The only things they had in common were that they both enjoy collecting action figures from a cartoon and that they both had no friends. This unlikely friendship grew over the year, however, Mary became a psychologist and publishing a book about Max which enraged Max, would their friendship last?

I enjoy the really bleak atmosphere and characterization of the protagonists, nothing good was going to happen to them and we are made to know it immediately. The grey scale clay figures and set designs were really well crafted. There were some really controversial subjects being discussed with ease, not only Elliot was able to poke fun of the pop culture, he was also able to show some deep insight into the lives of the marginalized groups.

The narration was simply superb like his earlier works, as the characters/narrator narrates, the events happen at the same time to help the audience visualize the words in a dark, yet humourous way.

I must admit that I was wallowing in tears at the end. It really touched the soft spot within me as I've always been fascinated with Asperger's syndrome. Mary and Max is a must see.

Harvie Krumpet
5 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A darling little film about the wonderfully unlucky life of Harvie Krumpet, a Polish migrant with Tourette's syndrome to Australia. He did not let his disability get him down, instead, he discovered the little joys of life (such as getting naked).
