Korean 65, Imported Total attendance: They are listed in the order of their release. In their first crack at romantic comedy, Sol and Jeon take on parts which, although lacking the emotional extremes of their previous roles, form the very heart of this charming film.
This is mostly true, though I would argue that the "thriller" part isn't present. The reality is that I was fascinated for the first third to half of the movie, seeing the house guests enter into this already tense home and behave absolutely appallingly.
I wanted to see where this movie would go.
It goes off the rails in spectacular fashion, leaving a few neat hooks to grab onto as I tried to figure out the meaning behind everything while it spins out of control. Then the second part begins. The plot is quickly forgotten as the movie reaches an insane crescendo of total bullshit.
Every scene no longer has a point, only heavy handed imagery to hammer it's metaphor into your skull. No scenes link together in any meaningful way, the movie darts from scene to scene as it gets progressively more and more hellish. After it's dropped any semblance of actual development, we get a short break from the insanity.
Followed by the one of the most disturbing scenes I've seen in a wide release film.
And I don't mean disturbing like "I'm going to have nightmares about clowns" kind of disturbing, or even the "torture-porn" genre of horror movies like Saw or Hostel.
I mean it is conceptually abhorrent in a way that I have never been confronted by and I hope I never have to consider again. These scenes alone are making me write this. I genuinely do not want anyone to hurt themselves by watching this.
This movie is not for the faint of heart and I can only recommend that the average movie goer should skip this. Leave it to the cinephiles. Let me know what you think! What follows is my own plot analysis and will be full of spoilers. Read at your own risk.
As unbelievable as that sounds, it's been said by Darren Aronofsky himself and I'll explain my own analysis of the movie under that context. The Poet represents either Consumerism or the broader Civilization.
He is worshipped quite literally, there is a lot of religious symbolism by his fans, Everyone Else. The Wife represents Mother Nature. It's safe to say the mother in the title refers to The Wife.
She is under siege on all sides by Everyone Else as they destroy her home in their worship of The Poet. Everyone Else represents Humanity as a whole. Rabid consumers with no regard for the cost of their actions.
The House represents Earth. Not much else to say about it. Disregarding the entire first half of the movie, which does little but make you commit to seeing this through, the second half is where the majority of symbolism occurs. The exception is a few scenes where the Wife touches the walls of The House and an image of a beating heart is shown.
Later in the movie, as these scenes occur again after some kind of trauma to The House, the heart is shown to be blackening and shriveling. The other exception is the revelation that the basement has a secret room with a huge tank of oil behind it.
The second half of the movie is hell bent on showing us the cost of consumerism as Everyone Else demolishes The House in a number of scenes including countless intruders breaking into the House and stealing everything, police arriving and eventually being replaced by the army, women are locked into cages by human traffickers, numerous people are black bag executed on the ground, all to the protests of a pregnant Wife.
As The Wife pleads with The Poet to send them away, he reveals that he doesn't want to. The Poet lives by their worship. The sounds of anarchy cease outside the room and The Poet says that they're quietly waiting to see the child.A completed work can have thousands of brushstrokes.
Impression helps make your photos more expressive by authentically turning them into art, the way a real painter would: painting brushstrokes one at a time. While that might look tasteless today (even if the party in question is well documented), there is an impression that the film will seek to put a slant on Mercury’s life, since it is co-produced.
We’ve been there! Spending hours editing images with complicated tools, ending with a result you’re not really happy with.
It’s time to spend more time doing what you love taking memorable photos. I also saw Solaris on the big screen – not Tarkovsky’s best film, but the one that made the greatest impression on me. I remember that it was advertised as the Soviet answer to A Space.
My impressions about the image quality are for the Sekor 80mm f/ lens that came with the camera. Although the camera has interchangeable lenses, I have yet to buy additional lenses.
Loading film is easy as the entire back swings open to reveal the loading chamber. The camera itself has a good heft to it. As a comparison, the C is slightly larger in .
