A Serbian Film

I was lucky enough to get a chance to see this. Wow. Here’s the description from IMDB:

An aging porn star agrees to participate in an “art film” in order to make a clean break from the business, only to discover that he has been drafted into making a pedophilia and necrophilia themed snuff film.

Intense. I’m definitely gonna keep my eyes on the Serbian film market after this. Not a bad movie, not the most grotesque I’ve seen either. But plenty enough for the average joe.

Do watch this if you get a chance!

The Cook & The Thief & His Wife & Her Lover

This was a little interesting piece that came my way. Something I hadn’t heard of, or seen before, yet boasts a powerful cast: Michael Gambon, Helen Mirren, Tim Roth.


Kind of slow moving, but it kept my attention for the most part. It’s about a guy who owns a restaurant who just likes to talk. Well, partly. His wife starts to have an affair with someone who keeps coming to the restaurant. Eventually things turn sour, like is usual.

The photography was very subtle in its genius (watch the reds). With great shooting, great cast, overall it is a very good movie. It’s good decent reviews on IMDB as well, problem is it’s very unknown :( The ending rocks too!

Buy it on Amazon (there are a lot more buying options on Amazon, but this seemed the best)

Bye Bye Monkey

Bye Bye Monkey on IMDBWhat a nutty movie. What a nutty time period, the ’70s. Young Gérard Depardieu is amazing. From IMDB: A man walking on the beach near New York City finds the corpse of King Kong. He also finds Kong’s orphaned son, and takes it to a friend who lives in the city, and they decide to raise it.

Bye Bye Monkey

I’ve love to see this pulled off now. The acting was great, story was great. A feminist theater company Depardieu sometimess works for was having troubles coming up with an idea. Someone mentioned rape as a subject. They tried to do a reverse rape on Depardieu, but they liked it heh. Interesting part of the movie.

There’s plenty of nudity in here, as well as Depardieu making out with a 60 year old woman. The ending was a bit dramatic, but I liked it.

One comment on IMDB hit it correctly: Is it another world, or our world gone mad?

Kynodontas

Kynodontas on IMDB I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted, so I’m giving you a good one ;)

As usual, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. No background on this before I watched it, but when it was all said and done, it deserves to be on this site.

Kynodontas is about a family in Greece that is tightly controlled by the parents. The three kids don’t know anything about the civilized world. Their little world begins to unwind when the father brings home a co-worker for his son to relieve himself with sexually.

What a weird concept for a movie. If you think you’ve seen a family that is abnormal, they will be perfectly normal after watching this movie.
