Only God Forgives

Ryan Gosling is doing some interesting films the past few years (Drive, The Place Beyond The Pines), and this is no exception. Filmed in Thailand, this film shows the drug underground and the ruthlessness within it. Gosling’s acting is really superb and the cinematography is excellent. This is definitely a must watch.

Pink Flamingos

When I say I’ve seen it all, that’s a big statement. But then I saw this. Pink Flamingos. How could a god create something so … pink-flamingo-ey. And why’s that dude got to fuck a chicken on the naked woman?

This acting is so awful, I don’t even have the words to describe it, and I’ve just come off a decent acid binge. For the time period, this movie was revolting, and that’s what it wanted to be. People loved it. Instant cult classic. For me however it was lacking, but who am I to say for a time period I wasn’t apart of.

Here’s a piece from the DVD:

RocknRolla

I know most of you have seen Lock, Stock, And Two Smoking Barrels from Guy Ritchie, but this steps it up a notch. I can’t list all of the big name cast, there’s too many. Gerard Butler, Tom Wilkinson, Thandie Newton, Jeremy Piven, and hell, even Ludacris.

The plot doesn’t focus on a certain group over overall situation. That situation is a Russian mob boss trying to build a building in the UK. The top mob boss is the one that can make this happen. But due to unforseen events, things unfold not as they plan.

I definitely recommend this movie if you like the UK crime/action type movie. Top notch!

Clean, Shaven

What a bizarre movie. The movie is about a schizophrenic guy trying to get his daughter back from a foster lady. I guess he broke out of the mental ward he was in, because I see no way they would let him out.

Within the first four minutes, he kills a girl and steals a car. I guess it’s gonna be a pretty interesting movie. Police get after him, or so he thinks and takes off to find his daughter.

The main character played by Peter Greene and is not his normal acting self we’ve come to know him as. I don’t know if schizophrenia is really like it is portrayed in the film, but I think he does a good job.

Pretty decent movie, reminds me of some David Cronenberg movies the way it’s shot and directed.
