Oh my god. I saw both The Good Shepherd and Children of Men tonight. The Good Shepherd was fairly disappointing. There was a lot to like about the film. The plot was pretty good, with a few good twists and turn, and I thought Damon gave a wonderful performance. His character was very fascinating. I thought the script was a little rough around the edge's though, and I thought Jolie gave a completely lackluster and unengaging performance. All the other big names in the film didn't even get a chance to show their worth because their characters never really got much of a chance to breath.

But Children of Men is a whole other story. Holy shit. I'm going to write a formal review later, because there's a lot to say about this film. For now, let me just say that it far surpasses even my lofty expectations. This may have been the most perfectly directed film I've ever seen. And the cinematography was simply stellar...truely unreal. I've never been so immersed in a (semi) fictional world before. Everything about this film was exquisite.

Expect more comments later.

I did see it, and it is one of the best films of the year.

I don't get the complainers. I guess they want a more predictable film. Romance angle, etc.

Well, Clive and J. Moore do end up together.

I am probably one of the few who recognized the King Crimson music.

One of the 60's throw backs.

The film is full of symbolism.

Three very good Mexican directed films in 06.

This and Pan's is better than Babel.

But Babel will get more attention. Oh well.

I really want to see Pan's Laberynth too. That's currently at the top of my list.

I love how Theo's (cousin, was it?) had the Pink Floyd pig balloon. That was great.

The concept was that the world collapsed
and he was collecting great works of art.

First we had a statue? Venus or David?

then a wall mural, Picasso? or ?

then the giant balloon pig.

Is the pig a PF creation
or did they borrow it?

I believe the statue was David, and that the mural was indeed a Picasso, though I'm far from an art enthusiast.

I'm not sure about the pig exactly, but either way, it has become a truly iconic pop culture work of art, especially in London.

I recognized the King Crimson music as well, actually.

Glad you enjoyed it, and I'm with you, I don't need my films spoonfed to me or to be done by the #'s.

Statue was David.

I may not get to see it tomorrow ... roads are icy, weather is unnaturally cold, don't want to put myself on the road with people who don't know how to drive in ice.

(Stupid unnaturally cold Seattle weather ...)

The pig thing reminded me of the Pink Floyds Animals cover.




By the way Excellent Film.

the mural is Guernica by Picasso
one of his most famous piece



everything about this movie was really just great
i cant think of anything i slightly disliked about it,
which is very very rare

i want to watch again in the theatre


...Babel blows, probably one of the worst films I saw last year, which was a shame cause I was really looking forward to it since I love the director's first 2 films

I rarely want to see a film a 2nd time right away...but, this one, I'd like to see soon.

Seattle has ice???

Seattle has had wind storms, rain storms, snow storms and sheets of ice on the road SINCE NOVEMBER.



I'm sorry. I don't mean to yell. I just feel like I've been moved back to Wisconsin against my will.

Anyway ... between ice on the roads, choir rehearsal, karaoke party with friends and the Seahawks playing the Bears Sunday morning, it's looking grim for me and ol' Clive Owen this weekend.

Maybe next weekend, Clive ... maybe next weekend.
