Nos Miran * Norberto López Amado (2002)

My usual rental has closed its doors so I have to look for an alternative. I decided to try the video on demand service of my TV provider. A long alphabetical list with no search option and a list that is not available elsewhere as behind the ‘on demand’ button of the remote. Annoying! However there are interesting titles such as “Naboer” and “Ne Te Retourne Pas” I did not recognise many of the titles and the few not very obscure titles that I was looking for, are not listed. Frantically paging through the list to find something interesting we just picked a thriller, a Spanish one. “They Are Watching Us” is not a very original film, but it does have that nice, dark, Spanish gloom. Police investigator Juan gets an old case of a disappeared businessman and the case rattles up dark secrets, also for Juan personally. A nice film develops with a couple of clichees, but with nice camera work and a good atmosphere.

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 [...]
