movie batch – good movies

with 4 comments

In order to reach a beautiful weekend closure, I’ve watched two good movies.

Eastern Promises (2007)


David Cronenberg, Vincent Cassel and Naomi Watts should be enough for me to consider a movie good and attractive. Although, I must admit that I hadn’t been a fan of A history of violence, I really enjoyed the “new” Cronenberg. Not the plot is the most important, but considering that “slaves give birth to slaves” the structure should be interesting. It is gloomy and the dialogues are well prepared. Good play, but Armin Mueller-Stahl always reminds me of Jarmusch’s Night on Earth. The Russian Godfather in a human-traffic context. And Viggo is exceptional – fuck Aragorn, this is where he belongs. Overall: strongly recommend.



No country for old men (2007)


Slow, stylish, aggressive – presents the core of any real serial killer or killing machine. Easily presented killings, no unnecessary questions. Nobody is that important that he/she couldn’t be killed. So, “it’s your call! I can’t call it for you! Just call it!”. Overall: impressed, loved – it’s a must.

  1. Eastern Promises is an excellent movie. The Santa Claus-like Russian Godfather’s dinners remind me of Greenaway’s bounty in the Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover and those tattoos are worth a thorough analysis.
    Not to mention spotting Viggo’s penis in the sauna scene…me and one million other women…GREAT…
