Two this weekend, arthouse jobbies.
Robinson Crusoe at the North Pole innit.
Single-hander pretty much, bloke is never off-screen.
Not much to say about the plot or the writing given the nature of the thing.
Looks amazing of course.
Soundtrack plays a big part seeing as there's no dialogue to speak of and it does the job nicely.
Bloke wot plays the part is very good.
Nice ambiguous ending.
Enjoyed it, 7.5/10.
2. At Eternity's Gate.
Van Gogh biopic.
Ace cast, Willem Dafoe is always worth the effort.
Julian Schnabel directs, Now he's very much hit and miss, imo.
Again looks ace, cinematography top-notch.
It's very bitty. Long stretches with no dialogue, just Vince looking moody and wandering around Arles.
Then intense dialogue with Gaugin and his brother, all soul-searching stuff.
Erik Satie stylee sound track got wearing after a bit.
Dunno, I was disappointed. Far too arty in the end.
6/10 cos it looks great.
Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.
