Should be a pretty impressive & intense night of viewing...
We'll let you know more as it comes in...
Hunger's pretty great actually. I really wanna go and see Let The Right One In, but none of my mates would be arsed. Need to find some girl to drag along, I'm not secure enough in myself to go to the cinema alone.
I would go it alone, it's such a good film as well.
but in the end i cared very little for it or its message.
but it was still pretty good.
i'm planning Pan's Labyrinth and/or Being John Malkovich for tonight
great film, some really cool visuals and I enjoyed it documentary style, I feel that definitely never been explored in animation.
Haven't watched Hunger yet, going to save this for tomorrow...
Scarily realistic, brilliant acting and directing, if not totally disturbing.
of the best films I saw last year. I thought the cinematography in Hunger was stunning, there are so many beautiful shots for such a disturbing film.
Waltz with Bashir was also amazing. For me, the animation was a vehicle for me to be able to watch scenes of absolute horror without turning my head away in disgust. I found it curious that it was through animation that it was possible for me to see something that I would otherwise be unable to even observe, let alone connect with in any way.
the moment when the feather is darting around in the breeze = awesome,
have you seen Better Things? Duane Hopkins film, i think you'll really appreciate that if you like Hunger... http://www.betterthingsthefilm.co.uk/
cheers for that. I haven't seen it, and the cinema listings tell me I missed the showings in Edinburgh, boo. Those kind of films are always better to see at the cinema, I think..
I regret not seeing Hunger at the cinema, it certainly would have been more moving on a bigger screen as it was intended... no distractions.
waltz with bashir is stunning
In fact i think they were the best two films i've seen in the past year. that is all
pick up Irreversible and Requiem For A Dream too, but not before haring it to Ladbrokes and sticking a bet on your own chances of avoiding suicide before the night is through.
(All japery aside, Hunger is magnificent stuff - what shone through for me more than anything was the absolute commitment of everybody involved in the enterprise, not least Michael Fassbender. Waltz With Bashir I admired more than liked, but wouldn't ever want to see it again, unlike Hunger. close brackets..
It was pretty entertaining.
