looks to be the best thing on terrestrial tonight - bank holiday TV is rubbish, isn't it?
and yes it's good, though it isn't a fast-paced movie.
If it's on a channel with adverts it might be a lot less good, though, as it's a kind of slow builder.
Oh and it's quite emotionally draining.
which is nice.
I hated it - not because it's poorly made, cos it isn't.
I just couldn't swallow the premise that we were supposed to feel sympathy for affluent heroin dealing scum who were being locked up.
and has a prettymuchalltimeclassic scene in it.
but i didnt give it that much attention to be honest so it might be alright.
in other movie news, i watched Brick last night, anyone seen it? i thought it was rather good
i felt the same as silentcommand, but its got enough good stuff going on that its worth a look. definitely something different for a spike lee film.
enjoyed 25th hour. I thought it was a suprb movie, prob the best thing i have seen spike lee direct
The Proposition that is.
i watched Honey, I Suckle the Kids. it made me angry so I watched the 34 stone teenager instead, which put me off my heinz chocolate sponge pudding and custard somewhat, but not enough to stop me totally.
Wow, it's like a thread of great, dark films.
Can I add SNAKES ON A PLANE?
Okay, I'll get my coat.
Erm, it was really violent. It was hard to watch a lot of it. You'd have to ask Sophie for a 'girl perspective' maybe. I know that I couldn't show the film to my mum even though she'd probably really enjoy sections of it.
It doesn't quite reach the level of the US edition of Fight Club where he's beating the shit out of Angel Face, but it's close.
No running away was possible.
I think the violence was necessary to make the point about the sort of world it was. Particularly so you understood why Ray Winstone's character was the way he was with his wife: trying to balance to utterly different worlds.
i watched it and really enjoyed it. and i didn't really find myself feeling 'sorry' for monty, as he was basically a scumbag, but i did have a certain amount of 'pity' for him (those are different things, right?).
plus, edward norton is generally great in everything he does.
by 'famous scene', i assume people meant the mirror bit?
Personally I think the violent one towards the end got me the most.
