I'm also missing out on razor blades in my kidneys, but I prefer it that way.

Is this that Korean movie? A friend gave it to me on DVD for Christmas one year, and I could only make it through to Summer. Why don't the Koreans know how to make decent movies?
You stopped it there? Watch it all the way through and I think you'll appreciate it more.

The Double Life of Veronique (1991) - 8.5/10
I don't claim that I would have understood it but it was still great.

The Life Aquatic 8/10

I liked it much better than the first time. Would have been a 8.5 or a 9 if every actor would have been good.

There's little to understand as the story is very simple. Perhaps in his attempt to be profound Kieslowski merely obscured the plot. I've never held that against the picture, though, as the beauty of the music and images (including those of Ms. Jacobs', clothed or not) provides me adequate recompense for my time. I think you should be generous and up your rating to a "9."

Duplicity - 7/10 - A fun but disposable light thriller. Owen and Roberts have great chemistry and the well-written script gives them lots of zingers and quips to work with. The plot is kind of hard to follow, the direction is pretty workmanlike and the supporting cast aside from Paul Giamatti is just adequate, but it was definitely entertaining. Probably just a one-time viewing though.

Undertow (2004) - 5.63/10

Slowly revealing urban America / Deep South kinda drama that starts interestingly (with ''child molesting in the family'' potential) but doesn't really go anywhere, as most of the characters play a passive role in favor of a plot full of black holes. Mediocre.

My plan is to buy the DVD, watch the movie again and then up it to 9. You're right, probably the story isn't all that complex but Kieslowski sure obscured it. But as you said, this movie is plain audiovisual beauty, so little problems in understanding the story take only .5 off the rating.

Cannibal Holocaust- 8/10

Breathing Fire- funniest dumbest movie

Hero and the Terror- not as funny as Breathing Fire but just as dumb if not dumber

Bangkok Dangerous- 2/10 Face/Off is Nick Cage's best movie

Matrix Reloaded/Revolutions- 9/10

The Matrix trilogy is up there for favorite Sci Fi movie for me

Huh, I've never really cared much for this. Maybe if I'd seen it first when all those techniques seemed innovative I'd appreciate it more. But jump cutting and the rest have been with us for 50 years now and none of it seems particularly special anymore. Belmondo is good. Seberg I can't stand unless she's acting in Paint Your Wagon. The relative plotlessness isn't a problem, there are Wenders films I enjoy that have much less going on. And there are fun little bits, like Melville's cameo. But that's not enough for me and I can't quite put my finger on what it is about this flick that fills me with such apathy. Just one of those Mysteries of Cinema, I guess.

sadly, this was probably the best that Godard had to offer.
