My Little Eye * Marc Evans * 2002

I had never heard of this film, but decided to rent it after getting curious by the back of the box. The film is not too original or surprising in story, but worked out well. “My Little Eye” shows the last week of three young men and two young women who have lived in a remote mansion for six months. It is some kind of internet Big Brother kind of experiment with cameras all through the house. When they manage to stay six months, each gets a million dollars, but when one person quits, everybody looses. “The organisation” starts to make things difficult by no longer sending food, refering to the participants pasts and bluntly scaring them out. This is done with a very good Blair Witch like atmosphere in which the suggestion makes the tension. Around the end the story starts to twist and turn towards a not too surprising end.

A not too great film, but especially the atmosphere makes this film a suggestion to anyone who likes gloomy thriller/horrors.

Wicker weekend

Last weekend I saw both Wicker Man films, the 1973 original and the 2006 remake and I just see that I ‘blogged’ about these films before.

Nicholas Winding weekend

Last weekend I have rewatched both “Drive” (2011) and “Only God Forgives” (2013). The films are very similar, yet very different. Both have Ryan Gosling as poker-faced main character. In both films Goslings character is involved in illegal activities, but does not really seem to want to. Of course, both films are slow and minimalistic. [...]

No blog

A “blog” with one entry every two years, that is quite cool, is it not?

It has been a couple of years since I added “blogs” to the different sections so I could share information other than reviews. Looking back, I am not entirely sure what kind of information I had in mind. I [...]

Fantasy bombast

During two airplaneflights I have killed some time watching to fantasy spectacles. First the lauded “Avatar”, second the first “Hobbit”. I did not expect “Avatar” to be some sort of “Matrix”, but the famous blue characters inhabit some sort of ‘inbetweenworld’ that men can only come using some sort of machine. The film is an [...]
