Perder Es Cuestión De Método * Sergio Cabrera * 2005

As this Columbian film opens, it suggests becoming a grim serial killer thriller like Se7en or Saw, but soon it becomes clear this this is more like a British police/crime film. Since these seem to become more grim recently, “Losing is a question of method” fits well in that genre. A journalist is dragged into the investigation of a gruesome murder, but soon the focus shifts to something completely different. In the process the Victor falls in love with the way too young, but beautiful prostitute Quica and drags her into the investigation. The film has a very nice sence of humour and the Southern temperament makes it a good film in a genre that is not really mine. The story and plot shift enough to keep you wondering what everything is all about and however the conclusion is not that strong, this film surely is not a bad 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 [...]
