Ashes of Time Redux
3 years ago via Flixster

Muddling but strangely absorbing and beautiful to look at and (kind of) resolves itself at the end.

Life on a String
5 years ago via Flixster
½

Old blind musician wanders around the Chinese backwaters with young blind disciple in tow. There is a plot.. old musician believes than when he breaks his 1000th string on his instrument (hence the title) he will see again and there's some quite pretty music and some philosophical fortune-cookie musings but really not enough to keep you glued to the screen for 110 minutes. Quite a good film to take up origami to keep you semi-preoccupied during the slow unfolding. .

Vidal Sassoon: The Movie

½

KInd of interesting, especially to show how boring hair is nowadays, but I didn't much care fo rthe subject and his strange, elocution-trained voice. The 80's Vidal & Beverley Sassoon TV series, with white teeth & orange tan was a low point.

The Four Times (Le Quattro Volte)
5 years ago via Flixster

Filmed like a documentary, watching it is like sitting in a cafe seeing the world go by; If you have patience & pay attention, someting always happens.
Especially around a goat.
I loved the film, but I can equally imagine others being bored silly.

Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame
5 years ago via Flixster

A combination of Tang Dynasty setting, kung fu fighting , detective plot, spontaneously combusting characters and talking reindeer.... what more could you want?
Easy on the eye too.
