Stunned by such work from Kieślowski.. So far, the films which I have seen of him were powerful by the characterization, although calm picturization.. Didn’t read the plot or storyline of Blind Chance before watching, and that’s how it became an absolute surprise to see a marvelous screenplay from it.. Three separate storyline which has been well differentiated by a man who try to catch the train.. Definitely a precedence to Run Lola Run (1998), Sliding Doors (1997) kinds.. As usually, the film was premiered after six years from making, because of state-imposed censorship due to the film’s political content.
The Calm (1980) Krzysztof Kieslowski’s TV Movie we have rarely noticed.. Filmed on location in Kraków (one of the oldest cities in Poland) and completed in 1976, but was banned by the state because of its subject matter — strikes were illegal in Poland during that time. The film was finally shown on Polish television for the first time on 19 September 1980. In 1981, The Calm received the Polish Film Festival Special Jury Prize.
Downloaded this movie for Maggie Cheung, and it turned out to be a wonderful story to my surprise.. We people, with all our routine responsibilities, keep on living the life as it goes on.. But memories is the very thing which reminding us that we are still humans.. Wherever we can go, however we can make our life, but the moments we treasure will always make a ringing at time connect us with what we came over.. Beautiful movie..
PS: To my surprise, I found that the person who is taking English class is none other than Wang Kar-Wai’s closest Cinematographer Christopher Doyle..
Conjuring is worth the money watching in theater.. I don’t know whether I would react like that or not if I download and watch it.. Watching how the situation gets creepier scene by scene with all the crowd shouting and noising along.. And nothing to say new about our people, who make timing Tamil-dialogue comments for an English movie.. that’s the best part :P
After watching, I continued with Insidious in home, which I kept pending for a long time.. and then I realized how Conjuring is so formal when comparing to Insidious.. Conjuring is still has some scary situation of it’s own, but Insidious starts the weird feel from the very start and never getting low until the movie ended.. Each and every faces are bloody haunting and gory with the excellent sound effects throughout.. Definitely Conjuring would be perfect for theater watching, but Insidious would rise the scare whenever or wherever you watch it.. James Wan is a real man of our time to create some best thriller of his own style.. It’s not too long for the next installment of Insidious.. Yes, Friday the 13th of September, 2013 ;) Will wait for it..
A man namedGuillermo del Toro, to whom I got admired like a kid while watching hisPan’s Labyrinth, has returned with a massive turbo war against evil (yes, the regular story, but not how we think like), which he delivered with his at mosteffort to stick us with the stable and steady screenplay.. Frankly, the story has some real sense, by which he wiped out the regular thought of recent days that a sci-fi movie should be told with all fastness and advanced-tech inclusions to not let audience think that they are fooled throughout. In 132mins, the film goes with it’s best progress to workout on what it ought to, which is sure seat-shaking action. It would be too kind if Mr. Micheal Bay stands aside for some years or so with his upcoming Transformers thing, because with the arrival of a film likePacific Rim, Transformers kind would be seriously funny. I can still remember how my forehead severed with aching while watching T3 in theater.
Lastly, a story can be any sci-fictional, the technology can be any advanced, the year can be any far in the movie, but if a creator made audience to get into it easier, there comes the smartness of all. And Del Toro made it sharply _/\_
