Sideways

Mature comedy with subtle flavours

(Edit) 14/09/2008

Someone described this as a grown-up 'American Pie'. Not sure if I agree entirely. I'm 29, engaged and with a kid and this felt a little too mature for me. I'd say its more suited for the 30-somethings or professional working types who are planning to settle down. Still, it's from that branch of comedy that America is becoming really good at, a subtle & witty humour which I really did enjoy. Fans of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' would like this.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Michel's magic on the big screen

(Edit) 07/09/2008

Michel Gondry is an incredibly talented director. He's put all his talents creating music videos for Chemical Bros., Bjork & Daft Punk to work and made a bizarre and unusual film which will twist your head off and tickle your brain.

21 Grams

Piece by piece, the puzzle comes together

(Edit) 12/09/2008

I love Pulp Fiction, the different mini-stories that wrap around each other into one twisted and funnt whole.

I love Memento, having the benefit of remembering what Leonard's (Guy Pierce) character has forgotten and seeing the story develop from two different timelines.

21 Grams takes this idea of telling a story out of the order in which events happen to the very extreme. It's not an easy film to watch and it's easy to get lost at the beginning but don't worry, all the stories tie up by the end of the film.

Problem is the story does suffer because it's told in such a way. The main characters are all pretty bleak and trying to find any sympathy for them is difficult while your trying to untangle the plot. Ultimately, there's not much story here at all but it's saved by some great acting from some top actors and the cinematography is pretty good too.

Overall, good film but I'd just watch it the one time to savour the experience.
