still playing at the Laemmles in Pasadena as I just saw it on Saturday. Might be at some of their other locations.

I'm back East, am sure I could find it here but the next few days are already fairly busy. Thanks, though, maybe when I get back it'll still be playing in Pasadena.

I dug it. The more overt digital moments hit that Uncanny Valley hard and took me out of it. Besides that, I found it to be an effective and intense survival flick.

Whenever someone at the theater I work at said, "it's the best movie I've seen in years" depressed me but what can you do?

It's very much in line with Tintin and the Uncharted games in terms of digitally-driven, long-take, fluid, highly-choreographed set-piece whatsit adventures. Which have their own particularly kinds of thrills and deeper satisfactions. I love them, Gravity included, but yeah, hardly best-anything ever material.

The photo-realism is close but not there for me to put Gravity in the same strata as Tintin, though they do share those formal similarities.

Btw, you'd love Nothing Lasts Forever, Lance.

Ah well the photo-realism element didn't really factor in for me. Just so happens one's a "live-action" film, another animation, another a video game (hybridized some might say). But it's really the focus on hyper-natural camera motion aided through digital means, long-take driven set-pieces, and a degree of superficial narrative turns which revel in archetype and convention for momentum if not outright cliche.

I'm not sure what Nothing Last Forever is, I'm sorry to say.

I posted about it on the last page. Sorry for being vague.

Oh no I'm sorry I missed that. Really does seem like something I'd enjoy, thanks.

That movie I color corrected over the summer? They needed me to redo a few scenes...this is a nightmare. I have no idea how to add a file into After Effects, apparently. This is probably really obvious, but the problem I'm having is making me want to slam my head into a wall.

Starting off my 2013 Catchupalooza with Johnnie To's Drug War was the correct decision.

Would you consider that the next To stepping stone? I caught Election at the tail end of a To retrospective and was blown away by it.

 
Didn't expect to see Reese Witherspoon bludgeoned to death by a rock, but it felt right.

Haha. The Election films aren't nearly my favorite even. So brilliant is To. One of the worlds greatest. Blind Detective encapsulate sooo many genres and tones, it's almost a career-summing work, but not self-consciously. Have you seen Exiled? Maybe my favorite of his. He tends to go back and forth between romantic comedies and action films, great at both. Check out My Left Eye Sees Ghosts, The Mission, PTU, Sparrow, Breaking News, Needing You, Don't Go Breaking My Heart
