Zero III

leave a comment »

Lithuanian political crime thriller comedy. Dunno if its third in a trilogy or not (there do exist Zero and Zero II by the same director), but it really didn’t matter. Quite good raucous fun. An 18 comedy.  As broad as that is rare these days

McConaughey got slightly fleshed out and wore a bald cap for this. That’s abput it. It thinks it’s the Wolf of the Sierra Madre. It’s not. But, that’s a terrible idea ahyhoo.

Denial

There’s a point in this film where a piece of barbed wire in Auschwitz, literally, sheds a tear. Which kinda sums up everything that’s wrong with it. Timothy Spall, Tom Wilkinson, and even Andrew Scott are far too good for this trite, pedestrian, telling of a really damn important story.

Trashy exploitation flick, posturing as a study in mental health. And, a right old bag of nonsense it is too. Rather enjoyable.

The Fall/Future of the Left – Forum (28 January 2017)

There’s a terrible boxt mud to the sound in here tonight.

Which is a shame. FotL rip it as usual. With a heavily pregannt Julia Ruzicka cementing her rock-god status big time.

The Fall update: Elena Poulou has left the band. Mark E Smith appears to have got himself contact lenses. The latter dealing with the poor sound, as usual, by turning up all the amps on stage. Making it a rough raucus punky set.

Original anime. Lush. I forgot the score for this. I now really want to see the second one again on the big screen.
