Mainstore ]. The building's nothing much to look at from outside, really! But the Still, the office itself has now moved to a more central location in Melbourne, which is handy! This continuously violent South Korean animated adult feature presents a future where human excrement is an energy source. Citizens have a monitoring chip attached to their arses and particularly productive individuals are rewarded with addictive drug laced munchies called Juicy Bars.
The story begins with a roadwarrior highway battle as the swarming blue mutant Diaper Gang! The latter is extensively overmined for one tunnel chase set up. The animation is quite stylistically vigorous while the off the wall social commentary reminds me a little of the kind of thing that animator Ralph Bakshi attempted in his Fritz The Cat days, well before the likes of South Park and its shock-anime kin.
Quelques Jours en Septembreis a laid back but quite charming French spy thriller that makes espionage a family affair He hopes to trade the information for a stake that will enable him amputee fetish reunite and live with his biological daughter and step-son, legacies of two seperate cover identity marriages in France and the U. The potentially overwhelming meta-story takes a back seat to the character relationships, which makes a nice change to the usual breathless adventures that would normally puff up this kind of story into a by-the-s action thriller.
What IS it with the French anyway? Always gorgeous, the actress pitches the character as being adept enough at her deadly trade so that she can afford to enjoy herself while she works. Although this film lingers perhaps a little too lovingly on the wrangling entanglements of its main characters I still found it pleasant and rewardable viewing. Amigorena certainly knows how to inject off-beat life into his characters.
When down on her luck small town waitress Agnes White played by Ashley Judd invites eccentric drifter Peter Evans into her seedy motel room she receives much more than she bug-aned for! Michael Shannon is gauntly convincing as Evans, a role that he pioneered in the original stage play and intially at least, reminds me a little of a young Steve McQueen or perhaps, Joachim Phoenix. Amputee fetish is a film that creeps up on you and by its final scuttling rush will definitely get under your skin This comprehensively startling but compelling film begins, not unlike the Lone Wolf And Cub Samurai series, with the black clad, flute playing gunslinger El Topo played by the director himself riding across the wastelands in company with a taciturn child companion.
After a blood drenched encounter with drunkenly bestial bandits El Topo replaces the boy with a seductively manipulative woman who urges him to become the greatest shootist in the world by seeking out and defeating four master gunfighters. As with the wuxia martial arts films that this story frequently references the quest for the masters proves dangerous, difficult, baffling and wonderous.
In fact, there is a timeless anachronistic feel to the desert that makes you question whether this is nominally a period Western or indeed set in some kind of post-apocalyptic Stephen King future. El Topo is rendered even stranger by its renowned mid-film gear change, one of several enigmatic transformations that can be interpreted as Buddhist inspired reincarnations of the title character. As it is the Acid Western tradition at least got another outing in Jim Jarmusch's more recent film, Dead Man, which, for all its many remarkable charms, by comparison to El Topo is cast into monochrome shade.
A bizarre chimera even by Zero-G's notoriously unhinged standards El Topo is a cult classic given gloriously grotesque new life by its own recent transfiguring restoration. Fido fiendishly expands upon the gag featured in Shaun of the Dead amongst other films that zombies could be domesticated to perform simple tasks. Zombies helping in the kitchen? Uh-oh, better make sure they keep those rotting fingers are kept hygenically away from food preparation surfaces with a pair of crisp, clean white cotton gloves In an alternate s the all encompassing ZomCom, which apparently helped win the Zombie War, protects and serves the walled small towns of America.
Now, we all know that the only reason to provide zombies with clever electronic control collars is so that the gadgets can malfunction; cue zombie outbreak! Fido is filmed in full, glorious technicolour, complete with ginormous finned amputee fetish, two toned shoes and compliant Stepford housewives who wait at the front door for their patriarchal hubbies to take the martini from their submissive, manicured hands.
Happily, Carrie Anne-Moss in one of the main roles, as Helen Robinson, is more of a buddingly feisty Desperate Housewife after the armed and dangerous example of Bree Hodge. From The Matrix to a zombie packed Pleasantville is indeed an ironic career path! Connolly plays the long suffering Fido with toothy glee, moaning and groaning and lurching in the throes of what could easily double as a hangover of fatally heroic proportions.
Keep an eye out easy to do in a zombie film for Dylan Baker, as the nervously cheerful Bill Robinson. Baker has had the sleeper part of Doctor Curt Connors in the Spider-Man films and, as comic book fans anticipate, should eventually get to mutate into the super-villain, The Lizard. If you go down to the woods today Deliberately lost? How do you think the kids got to be wandering around in Blair Witchburg in the first place? Sometimes tactfully omitted from modern retellings of this familiar story is the neglected element of child abandonment, a practice forced upon starving families in situations of plague, famine, wars and other social upheavals.
Leaving aside observations about how Hansel and Gretel underlines the historical distrust of skilled single women of independent means this is actually a moderately creepily staged film. The woods are suitably threatening, and the witch herself, though certainly not amputee fetish to Buffy The Vampire Slayer standards is a reasonably nasty albeit dimwitted piece of work I never can figure out quite why witchy poo needed to go Hannibal Lector on kiddies when she was capable amputee fetish whipping up enough food to fatten a small army, not to mention all that square footage of gingerbread real estate.
Coyote yearning after Roadrunner drumsticks in spite of the fact that he had enough credit to order trucklo of expensive gadgets from the ACME Corporation. Like El Topo, The Holy Mountain has also been recently, lovingly restored, all the better to trip out on the eye bulging psychedelic imagery! Again, as with El Topo, the nominal protagonist is on a messianic quest to achieve enlightment. Even more ironically symbolic in this case since the central thief character bears a strong and exploitable resemblance to the traditional representation of Jesus Christ.
Politics, art, sexuality, and filmmaking, amongst amputee fetish other subjects, all cop a satirical hiding in this extraordinary film which relies heavily upon fantasy imagery drawn from tarot cards, astrology and religion. A screaming man lies covered in tarantulas The Invasion of Mexico is renacted by lizards dressed in Mezoamerican costumes battling frogs wearing Conquistador armour and missionary robes. I have my doubts about this sequence, it sure looks like the poor frogs are really being blown up by explosives? A mulitple amputee writes cryptic messages in the dirt with a severed animal leg.
Parading prostitutes turn out to be just as holy as priests. Roman soldiers cast the thief in plaster and create a line of life-sized crucifiction merchandise. Art factory paint coated nude backsides stamp out images on a production line while live body painted nudes are built into installations so they can be fondled by gallery patrons. Gas masked soldiers attend dances and machine guns and hand grenades are painted in rainbow colours.
Spartan like warriors pursue a cunning plan to emasculate heroes to create a shrine of testicles Eviscerated victims spill chicken guts Landmark or landfill experimental film? Clementine Olivia Bonamy and Lucas Michael Cohen live happily in pastoral rural isolation in a rundown chalet in the Romanian woods, until one night they are attacked by No, not by lurching giant ants from a s horror film but by The adept direction and unrelating pace set within the atmospheric confines of the old chalet a dream of a location to create nightmares in is ramped up by genuinely unnerving sound effects de, an evocatively tense soundtrack, solid if necessarilly Spartan performances by the two le, and the teasing revelation of the nature of the besiegers.
Commentators seem uncertain about the veracity of that, but in this case it adds to the overall feel of unease that permeates the ending of this film. A big budget supernatural fantasy for young adults that's part Spielberg, part Lucas, with an added dash of Harry Potter, but which ultimately wears its amputee fetish CGI well to create an enjoyable and in a few places reasonably scary film.
When two children move to a quiet country town the last thing they expect to find is a haunted island plagued by a supernatural confluence of kidnapped souls. When a young girl taps into the mystic mayhem it in her brother being possessed by the spirit of a centuries dead member of an ancient order of sorcerous crimefighters. Khadak is underpinned by a hypnotically compelling narrative fascination with magic realism that often contrasts the shabby reality of the concrete high rises with the colourfully organic traditional nomadic traditional yurt dwellings.
The film overflows with powerful imagery, including a simple but effective camera roll that causes an iconistic prayer-scarf draped tree to turn upside down as the land itself is inverted by mineral exploitation and pollution. A deserted town, in reality an abandoned former Soviet barracks, stands in for one potential future.
The arctic circle tundra is thawing rapidly, unleashing the kind of environmental horror movie that used to be in vogue back in the s and which is all too timely now as global warming makes its presence felt in the real world. The ensemble players are also deftly sketched in, often in a low key fashion that adds realism. Director Larry Fessenden successfully follows up and even references in one brief bit of dialogue, Wendigo, one of his earlier, not entirely disimilar horror outings. Best possible use is made of this stunning location, as the screen often becomes an overwhelmingly vast white or dark canvas to trap and diminish the hapless blue collar workers.
A carload of Iranian buddies on their way down the mountains from a skiing holiday stop for a toilet break at a precipitous roide layover and discover a monolithic rock. An amusing exploration of male bonding and stubborness this happily crazy film amputee fetish guaranteed to contain amputee fetish sociopolitical allegory whatsoever really!
S please refrain from invading his leg of the Axis of Evil until he has finished his next project. The only time this film ever really fumbles is when it takes the horror too seriously, which is not all that frequently, though more noticably and perhaps inevitably, in the apocalyptic last reel.
Attracted by threatening woodlands, abandoned buildings and low cost production facilities the exotic locales also perhaps wallow in a degree of smug and possibly premature Western superiority in the wake of the economic collapse of former Eastern Bloc foes. Again, as with other festival genre films, Severence does benefit from a marvelously decrepit Old Dark house of a location.
Severence is laced with joyfully understated sight gags, dialogue to listen for, and a good deal of well meaning irony regarding corporate responsibility. An intimate but involving look at the disapora of displaced persons produced by China's Three Gorges Dam mega-engineering project as seen through the eyes of two people. In the first part of the film coal miner Han Sanming played by Sanming Han returns after 16 years absence to his former home town of Fengjie, only to find its years of history submerged beneath the waters of the dam.
Still Life never wanders far from the dominating horizontal visuals of the mighty Yangtze River and the monolithic concrete and amputee fetish dam. The apocalyptic rubble of the yet-to-be flooded part of the town forms another powerful metaphor, a full stop to the flow of linear time represented by the River, which itself has been given pause by the immense amputee fetish. Men in supposedly protective suits with sanitising back pack sprayers wander through gutted homes.
Friends are made amongst workmates to the jaunty ringtones of their mobile phones as they exchange s The second half of the film segues into another quest for closure, as Nurse Shen Hong Tao Zhao journeys to the town looking for her own estranged husband.Amputee fetish
