Hey, they stole the title-card montage thing from my thread to make a De Niro tribute.

Sleeping Beauty

Liked very much by a few, loathed by everyone else.

Fellow critics unfairly shrug off ingenue Julia Leigh's anti-erotic Sleeping Beauty; it shows promise.

Apparently 20 mins of Super 8 was shown and was extremely well-received.

And:

Image


WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN: Yes, we do. Brilliant, harrowing, a faux-psychological bad-seed tale masking emotional tale of loss..


(A-) An epistolary novel ingeniously hollowed out into spiny memory collage; I want to throw up, in a good way.

Terrifying, beautiful and thorny; Swinton is superb, but director Ramsay's skill and will are the real stars.

Gut-twisting art-horror; there will be a bloody good Jonny Greenwood score.

63. For about 1/2 an hour it seemed like the greatest movie ever made. Then Kevin becomes a character.

RESTLESS (D+) If not Van Sant's worst, certainly his most lifeless: paper-thin Love Story clone exhausts wan symbolic properties of birds.

Gus Van Sant's Restless just screened, but I saw it in London last week. Sadly, it's dreadful. Tasteless and empty.

And yet:
Great film, really enjoyed it. It's a very sweet, quaint little love story. I really love Mia Wasikowska.

The trailer was dreadful.

Salvation Boulevard (Ratliff) [Market]: 47. Toothless, clumsy religious satire boasts a few goofy moments courtesy of fine ensemble cast.

Extremely impressed by SLEEPING BEAUTY. I don't understand the tepid If not blasé reactions I keep hearing around me. At all.

In this video, you can see Jane Campion in the background of the Toronto guy's question shot.

Also, my uni friend went to highschool with Emily Browning, who was younger. Now she's naked on screen. Must be strange.

I still don't see why Ramsay was ever interested in The Lovely Bones unless she was planning to eradicate all the garbage. Would have to have been utterly different.

I would love to even try and explain some of the plot but that's quite a challenge because... there isn't one.

Sleeping Beauty felt like a film where a random smattering of overly-pretentious, drawn out scenes were simply slapped together in chronological order in an attempt to tell a story. There's no editing, no creativity to it, nothing. How does she finish one segment to move on to the next? Slow fade to black. I don't even get how she was so pretentious directing her first film, it makes no sense. I've seen student films and short films which have more flair and structure and worthwhile storytelling than this fiasco. I don't even understand the point of why this film was made, it had nothing to say, and the lead character had no real messages either.
