Suspect Zero * E. Elias Merhige (2004)

Well, another serial killer thriller with the usual serial killer story in which the killer not only uses symbolism / psychology, but also follows the man who used to hunt him. Fortunately, “Suspect Zero” has a nice, grim atmosphere and some interesting camera experimentations and this surely lifts the film somewhat. The obligatory surprise in the story is actually not that bad either.
Thomas Mackelway is transferred to some small town, soon followed by his ex partner (both privat and professionally) Fran Kulok (Carrie-Anne Moss) when he runs into familiar patterns in killings in his new district. The other person we follow is played by Ben Kingsley. Like I said, the story is not very original, but executed alright, so “Suspect Zero” might be one more serial killer film to watch.

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 [...]
