The Lobster is a challenging film to watch. It's part romance, part thriller, and part social commentary, but all in all refreshing to see. The premise is that single adults are taken to a resort where they have 45 days to meet another single, or else, they would be turned into an animal. The story pokes fun at the notion of marriage and looks at how absurd some of the reasons people get married for. They don't leave loners off the list neither. Their characteristics are just as odd. Much of the conversations are uttered in monotone, but by design. The few times true feeling come out, they are really heightened. I am going to think about this film for a long time, and I believe that's how many others will feel about it too.
Confusing, and it is a wonderful confusion. Characters don't know what's happening, but I know for sure that Wong Kar-Wei knows whats going on. So you just put your faith in him and enjoy the ride.
I watched Gravity tonight and it completely took me out of my day. It took me out of the bad week I was having before the Friday night. Without spoiling much, Gravity is a story of two astronauts trying to go home after a space debris storm destroyed their ship. I am not sure if it was the ominous music or the first-person perspectives, but I was totally sucked into the film after the first ten minutes. Cuaron's metaphors are blatant, but still beautifully shot. It's a story of fear, loneliness, desperation, strength, and most of all hope. And it was done with only two actors! Totally love this film. I'm raising my vodka flask for this one.
