Gonna go see Persepolis tonigh-igh-igh-ight (8). I wonder if it'll be totally excellent?
I hope it's as good as I've heard it is.
want to go see it after exams.
Well, maybe not.
But it's really good.
just got back and, boy, was it crapola. virtually no dialogue, a million scenes, and vacuous yet constant constant constant narration from the author/protagonist who, i gather, is pretty egotistical. When it came to explaining politics, characters simply started listing all the concepts and ideologies that were banging around at the time. worst thing was though was the fact it's been dubbed into these totally ridiculous american accents. i thought that was considered really LAME a good few years back.
protagonist, in retrospect, sees her ex as an ugly fool who eats his own snot.
ha ha ha
Yeah it was crap. And it wasn't even in french so I didn't get to flex my french muscles.
you shoulda gone to see it in French, doye.
Probably too "arty" for friday night glasgow though, to show a french film in a multiplex cinema.
Should'ave gone to see forgetting sarah marshall instead.
I had a watch of the trailer last night, after reading this thread. It looked very well animated and I like the concept. Ah well, maybe a DVD release?
from the comfort of your own home.
but then i saw it in french, wonder why they slapped an american dub over it..
The political side of things was a little simplistic but i really liked the animation/ I watched it with a persian friend who seemed to think it was pretty spot on in terms of the general feeling out there and the way the family interacted with each other. + it had some pretty funny moments...
that said calling iron maiden punk was a little off :P
