Image

Filtered through the perspective of an unreliable protagonist who clearly has mental health issues, Keane makes for an engaging and often enthralling experience as Lodge Kerrigan constantly toys with the title character's ambiguous motivations. The final fifteen minutes in particular are nail-bitingly intense as well as emotionally devastating. Damian Lewis is sympathetic throughout as the fragile protagonist and Abigail Breslin is very natural too.

Curiously it is over halfway in before we properly meet the main character here and even hear about the hunger strike idea. The scene that introduces him and idea is excellent and very intense with his passion and conviction easily felt, and the hunger strike scenes are just as gripping. I liked some of beautiful shots early on (snow fading into a bricked background), but the first half underwhelmed me though with its lack of character development.

2. Floating Clouds (Naruse, 1955). Aah, dysfunctional love affairs in post-war Japan. Happy clouds just floating by above the happy little people. Or not. I was kinda hoping it would be a little more gripping, but it's well done for what it is.

Rewatch as I didn't have a rating on it. I liked it a lot more this time around. Definitely violent, but I picked up on a lot more of the allegorical aspects of the plot, which made it a more enjoyable experience. Favorite line was them talking about dabbling in trying to make money from traditionally unprofitable sectors, like healthcare, prisons, and space. :lol:

Image

This melodrama has some decent things to say when the protagonist's dilemma eventually arises; for the most part though, this is a formulaic romance movie with Ronan and her beau in America so easily and quickly falling madly in love. There are some occasional funny moments as Ronan's friends in Brooklyn teach her to eat spaghetti properly and so on, but the film has little beyond the basic dynamic of being torn between two places/futures.

This was my last unseen Academy Award Best Picture nominee for its year - and easily my least favourite of that bunch.

While this documentary provides very little context for its homeless interviewees and how they managed to hit rock bottom, that is because the focus is instead on what it is like to live down there with all of the participants reasonably content with their lifestyle. As one of them states, "I don't have to pay no bills" and the camaraderie between the homeless folks who act like a family is heartwarming to see, making this a 'life off the grid' sort of film.

The demise of poet John Keats is depicted through the eyes of his girlfriend in this period piece. The film does well at incorporating his poetry into the narrative and the film expectedly looks divine (the exterior gardens are used particularly well). I found the romance bland and dry though and I am unsure why the film was filtered through her eyes and not his, especially since it doesn't concentrate on her own achievements as a seamstress.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!
