VIEWFILMIQATSI: LIFE WATCHING MOVIESSeptember 13th, 2004 |
Well, I didn’y make it to the theater this weekend to see Resident Evil: Apocalypse, but I guess it will wait for me. I did see a few others at home though. Here is a quick recap:
Intolerable Cruelty – I enjoyed this Coen Brothers movie, though I don’t see it having the replay value of some of their previous films.
Naqoyqatsi – I rounded off Godfrey Reggio and Phillip Glass’s trilogy by watching this third installment of music and images. This is the second best in the trilogy, with Koyaanisqatsi: Life Out of Balance being the most innovative.
Blow Up – “This is a bad movie, you know that, right?” Patti said before bailing out on this one. I agreed, until I completed watching this and thought about it for a few minutes. I watched the trailer after I finished viewing this film which confirmed that I did understand the point they were trying to make. A little long, with spans that include little dialogue or even conceivable plot, this film is stylized enough to grow on you. You spend the first twenty minutes thinking “Why am I watching this?” but stick with it. Think art film rather than Hollywood Blockbuster. I guarantee Mike Myers has seen this film, as a few of the scenes reflect Austin Powers.
