jamiemorrison2 -> Wife thought it was bab (7/1/2013 10:04:13 PM)

My wife thought it was one of the worst films she has ever seen because the story just fizzled out with no real conclusion, and is angry that she cant get that time back that she wasted watching it.....she could have been knitting after all. I, however, liked it...thought that it was atmospheric and the acting by Toby Jones as his mind breaks apart was excellent. So, for me it was better than knitting, if only slightly because knitting is wonderful.




MOTH -> RE: Wife thought it was bab (8/1/2013 3:44:04 PM)

Most reviews I read about this made it sound like a horror film, and it really does sound like a horror film, in its blackly comic look at the trade of a foley artist. Comparisons have inevitably been made with David Lynch's output, but it actually reminded me of a skewed British version of Lost in Translation, in depicting the discomfort of a lonely Englishman abroad. In fact, with Toby Jones' pudgy face, language difficulties and questionable mental state, it could well be an account of Gazza's time at Lazio. No? Well, it's as valid an interpretation as any. Listen, don't expect it to make sense, but it'll probably stick in your ears for a day or two afterwards. (7/10)

A film about sound and cleverly written too. I thought visually it should have been grittier to get that authentic '70's look as everyting about it is very slick. I loved the fact that you see such little action; as with all good horror films-it should be left to the imagination.

ROTGUT -> BERBARIAN BOLLOCKS..... (26/2/2013 4:26:28 PM)

This is the kind of horror film that snobby film critics tend to like but I loathe. Too dull, too talkative, weird just for the sake of being weird and – most crucially – NOT VERY SCARY!!! I would have preferred to watch the fake movie that the characters were actually working on rather than sit through this RUBBISH again. ONE STAR.





Paulypoos -> A long, drawn out, empty experience (27/2/2013 6:19:59 PM)

I really wanted to like this but couldnt....despite the superb Jones being in it. It just dragged on and NOTHING HAPPENED, you kept expecting it to, some little twist or final big climax but no...nothing....just a guy getting more and more frustrated and then it ended. Yes it looked nice and was quite atmospheric but it was so empty and went nowhere....just watching the interviews with the pretentious director left me wanting to berate him for such an exercise in banality. He had the finance, the talented actors and he made THIS, what a waste.....utter boredom.

Up there with Django as 2012 film of the year, weird, atmospheric and well written. I don't think of it as a horror film though.




demoncleaner -> RE: A long, drawn out, empty experience (10/3/2013 3:37:48 AM)

My No ! film of the year.

Funny, creepy, and humble.

After seeing this I went down the town and, bought Katalin Varga....there's no mistake Peter Strickland can be mentioned in the same breath as Paul Thomas Anderson as 2 of the must-see film-makers of the moment.
