Also the Cannes Film Festival starts next week, with many notable directors in competition:
Seeing Shiva Baby tonight and planning on seeing Another Round next weekend.
Was just reading about this which looks interesting. Couldn’t see it mentioned anywhere so thought this was the best place?
Score done by Jon Hopkins and the Dessner Brothers, 25 min short film. Looks like it’s streaming from tomorrow.
Might watch The Shining later. I know pretty much everything that happens, and have obviously seen loads of individual little bits, but have never actually watched the film as a whole.
Yeah this was great. Even just visually, those tracking shots through massive rooms, the reds and golds etc. The creepier stuff would have had more impact had the film not been referenced/parodied into oblivion, but that can’t be helped.
It’s pure shite. And I quite like the other films for brain dead entertainment but this one just doesn’t work in any way.
said to my dad the premise of another round is very unappealing. “what, white men drinking?”. tag-line master!
Gutted, he was fantastic…
