    That's like wondering how Apocalypse Now would play for someone who didn't grow up during Vietnam.

    May give Pixote a run through tonight. Why are all Brazilian movies about poverty, theft, and prostitution? Because they love it!

    Best novella movie featuring relationship cheating, mature huge titted nipple pokers, and floppy Cuban cocks currently showing for free on FIOS: ‘Perfecto Amor’ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0390195/

    Also recommend ‘Los Debutantes’ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0384036/ and ‘Chicha Tu Madre’ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0778641/ .

    The first 20-30 minutes of Wings of Desire casts quite a spell. The whole Peter Falk subplot fell flat for me, though. The dialogue scenes are just no match for that magical opening. Has anyone seen Wenders' sequel Faraway, So Close! ?

    This is exciting news - it turns out Weerasethakul's new film is NOT A DOCUMENTARY after all. I bailed on this review early because I want to go in cold.

    I saw Andrei Zvyagintsev's Elena at USC last night, and despite some terrific sound design and mostly excellent performances, I left thoroughly unimpressed with this director that I have repeatedly heard described as an "heir to Tarkovsky" or whatever. I think that's a terrible way to judge a film or filmmaker, but this one was pretty boring and, well, my mind had to go somewhere. It's a story of social unrest, following the eponymous middle-aged woman who is married to an older rich guy but seems to have modest origins, as evidenced by her parasitic son who wallows in the slums with an expanding lower-class family; most of the drama unfolds around Elena's efforts to get her husband to pay a bribe so her grandson can get into college. That you can almost certainly imagine why the old man is reluctant to do that is indicative of the film's general obviousness; the events of this world unfold with a plodding inevitability that telegraphs basically every move, and not in a way that adds anything. What's even worse is - I don't think this was the intent, but it's tough to avoid reading the film's social paradigm as the paranoia of the 1%, with much of the film's last act seemingly dedicated to punishing Elena's family for her maneuverings and even likening them to the end of the world. Seriously.

    Many people in the theater were too offended to laugh however...

    Haywire: entertaining movie with a shitty ending.

    Chronicle: entertaining movie with a shitty ending.

    Advantage goes to Chronicle. Reading about how Soderbergh was trying to do a spaghetti western of sorts, I realize Haywire was supposed to be different than your average flick of that genre. It just really didn't click at all, and something felt off the entire time. And, as Gabe mentioned before, Gina Carano's acting was terrible.

    I actually liked the Haywire ending. I thought it was pretty solidly entertaining all the way through. I'm looking forward to seeing Chronicle. But Netflix has the busted 1 month delay working with that movie. Makes you want to get rid of Netflix, until you realized going to Blockbuster sucks way worse.

    I just also watched Haywire, and am pretty sure I liked it a lot more than anyone I talked to about it. It really did the trick. it's a quiet little action movie. Carano's tits and thighs are mesmerizing. I love watching her jump off walls to straddle guys' necks.

    She was just kind of hard to believe in that role, in no way is she slender (which you'd think someone would need to be to pull off moves like that). Aside from maybe Ocean's Thirteen, probably the weakest of the Soderbergh films I've seen.

    On another note, I have a confession to make: I just watched The Nightmare Before Christmas for the first time tonight.

    Are you kidding me? The movie is built off the fact that she can & does pull of moves like that. How in the hell is it hard to believe her in that role when that is the case? And why would being slender make her more believable in that role? Would you honestly believe Zoe Saldana could take her? Sure, here acting isn't great, but was it ever expected to be? She's never acted before. As the movie progressed her acting bothered me less & wasn't a huge problem to begin with as she didn't have to stretch herself all that much. I thought it was a neat action film and look forward to what Carano can do in the future.

    Yeah, Carano is actually doing all that stuff for real - that's what people who can do that stuff really look like ahhaha.

    EDIT: The only reason she's not "slim" looking is because of muscle. I don't think that woman has much bodyfat on her. She's ripped.

    EDIT 2: Also, I think going into thinking of it as a Soderbergh film is the wrong approach to this. It was an experiment on his part, and certainly very different from his usual work. as a smart action film, it pays off in spades, especially as a showcase for a fighter. it's very much the same kind of movie that we're used to seeing from Asian cinema, like a Tony Jaa movie. It was cool seeing her really using her MMA techniques used within a movie - the fights are incredibly believable. The only scene I had to really stretch my imagination was her fight with Ewan McGregor, whom I did not believe for a second would put up that much of a fight.

    I was also pleasantly surprised that Michael Fassbender was in it as much as he was, and Channing Tatum was a really fun to watch in it too.

    After having seen the trailer for Magic Mike, I'm not sure what approach I should take with that one. On one hand, it's Steven Soderbergh. On the other, it's Channing Tatum in a stripper flick. I'm not sure how (or even if) to take it seriously.

    I don't say this as a pejorative (because I'm a big fan), but apart from Che and maybe something like Bubble, I don't think most of his movies are intended to be "taken seriously". He is an experimenter through and through (at least, within the realm of Hollywood filmmaking), and though his work generally has a unified set of aesthetics, he's made a dozen career moves that are intended to provoke a "what the fuck is this?" reaction.

    I watched Perry Henzel's The Harder They Come this afternoon. It's a scrappy, rough-edged, visually audacious rasta crime flick starring Jimmy Cliff (obviously) as an upstart singer who struggles to find success until he becomes a violent criminal. Highly recommended for the gorgeous 16mm photography, excellent score, and most of all, the potent allegory of the extreme lengths to which entertainers must go to catch the big break.
