Amores Perros

Not my cup of tea

(Edit) 22/04/2005

Although has similarities with city of god in its film making style. I found the story unengaging with brief highlight of interest. Did not enjoy the experiance but thats just me.

Four Rooms

light and satisfing

(Edit) 20/09/2005

Quentin Tarantino masterminded this showcase for ascendant mid-90s filmmakers with stories tailored to each: Allison Anders' coven, led by Madonna, is desperately seeking semen in the name of women's rites; Robert Rodriguez's mafia brats blame everything on their bellboy babysitter; Antonio Banderas applies the ties in Rockwell's bondage short, while Tarantino recreates a classic Hollywood anecdote involving too much booze, a little finger and a large knife.Owing much to high-concept TV serials 'The Love Boat' and 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents', yet evoking golden-age ensemble films such as Grand Hotel, this ambitious film adds to the mystery and romance of the suite.

Kids

Different

(Edit) 14/04/2005

This film does depict the realities of being a city kid in todays society. It does in some ways remind me of my childhood in london and did connect with me. I would recommend this as it is a different kind of film from the usual offering from hollywood. Honest, real, engaging. a real gem.

City of God

Excellent and engaging

(Edit) 22/04/2005

Its about the cycle of violence among the poor, young criminals in the slums of Rio De Janeiro. It's entire narrative is saturated with the desperation and violence of Brazil's disenfranchised underclass.But with its quintessential new-Latin-cinema energy, dynamic shooting style and complex structure of interconnected stories, it's also comparable to the Mexican Amores Perros. It is a fascinating, powerful film, full up with angry power about the disgraceful state of Brazil urban poverty, and how it simply creates a culture of desperate greed and cyclical violence.

An epic and a masterpiece by any standard.
