Film Advice #6: The Fall

Good Morning
Inspirated by Zako Heskija’s tragedy “Yo ho ho” (1981), Tarsem Singh shows us  a unbeliveble epic story with strong and powerful images, elaborate dialogues and gorgeous locations. The opening title (see the video below) is accompany with music by the legendary seventh symphony of Beethoven. I think this is a film which you have to see twice or more to understand the messages and enjoy the images. I recommend the movie to the ones of you, who are interested in epic story about a group of different heroes, a story about revenge, about love. Enjoy.

Plot: In a hospital on the outskirts of 1920s Los Angeles, an injured stuntman begins to tell a fellow patient, a little girl with a broken arm, a fantastical story about 5 mythical heroes. Thanks to his fractured state of mind and her vivid imagination, the line between fiction and reality starts to blur as the tale advances.

The Skin I Live In

The time has come.

Tomorrow, on the 20th of October, the new film from Pedro Almodóvar is running in german theaters.

Film Advice #4: Pi – π

Mathematic is the language of nature.

With a mix of breakcore and drum’n’base introduce you the title sequence into the first feature film from Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, The Wrestler). The Film is shown in black&white and seems to be an underground hit. The director wanted to make a movie about god, math and badass jews. I am sure that this move inspirited films like Enter the Void. Another topics of this psychological thriller are drugs and psychology. The Film is about Max, a genius mathematician, who tries to decipher the numeric system till the whole world came crashing down around his ears. This film is stunning.

Check it out!

Film Advice #1: Enter the Void

What up?
This is the recent work from the french shocking director Gasper Noé. The story is set in the neon-lights environments of Tokyo and is mainly about near death experience and the drug DMT. The cinematography is one of the best I’ve ever seen. This epic tragedy is probably not for the faint-hearted. This isn’t just a movie, it’s a masterpiece. The actors playing well, the set is perfect, the music breathtaking and the images stunning. Only the running time is probably with 3 hours a bit to long.
Enter the Void is a must see for everyone who is over 18, likes the style of Gasper Noé or Harmony Korine, drugs, the maya-cult, goa music and Tokyo.
