The Caveman’s Valentine * Kasi Lemmons * 2001

The director of “Silence Of The Lambs” and “Candyman” comes with this “classic and powerfull thriller”. Well, a nice shory based on a book with the same title. Romulus Ledbetter (Samuel L. Jackson) is a paranoide and schizophrenic musician who lives in a cave in a park. On Valentine’s day morning he finds the frozen body of a young vagabond infront of his cave. This is the start of a search for the killer. Rom thinks that there is a man living in a tower controlling everyone’s lifes, but comes up with a possible killer of the friend of a friend and tries to find the thruth.
The film is nicely overlain with strange visions of angels of the caveman, but overall is just a film with an original story that isn’t worked out too well.

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 [...]
