This documentary captures how Nicolas Winding Refn wrote and directed two sequels to Pusher with money that he did not have under the conviction that if the films succeeded they could pull him out of debt. The debt was caused by the box office failure of his prior Fear X and the early bits here are interesting as Refn waxes poetic over how it was "my most ambitious movie and my best one" while complaining about making movies for money.

This benefits from excellent, down-to-earth performances all-round, and while there is not a lot of violence, what we do see is appropriately grisly and brutal. After all, the movie seems to question if violence begets violence and whether the police and underworld can ever really exist without some on the take. The presentation of the tale is not exactly helpful though, full of events played out of order and subplots gradually converging confusingly.

I really enjoyed the script, and I'm sure I would love the book, but found the direction too flat, and didn't like the score at all...

Hanging in the back seat as the guys drive round for some cherries to pop, writer/director Olle Hellbom picks a rough and ready Punk Noir atmosphere off from the streets, gathering all the rebellious youth in a cramped cafe that Hellbom pans the camera across the cafe, capturing the cramped, pent-up tension between each gang.

Rocking Bibban between Roffe and Lasse, Hellbom rides them out to a shattering doom-laden final ride with excellent, drenched in shadow close-ups of Bibban eyeing her transformation from pretty young thing into a drained Femme Fatale, being seated next to the rogue, ruthless youthfulness of Roffe being pelted with lines of white lights unzipping each of his rough edges.Unbuckling all the gangs hanging outside the cafe working on their cars/bikes, the screenplay by Hellbom superbly kicks-starts the troubled relationship between Roffe and Bibban with the spike of the youthful rebellion frustrations of the era, as Roffe hits out at anyone who tries to put limits on him, and becomes growing abusive over Bibban saying no.

Wonderfully contrasting the abrasiveness of Roffe, Hellbom gives the growing bond between Bibban and Lasse a sweet teenage innocence, sparkling in the crisp dialogue between the pair in car rides, driving towards love, before being taken by Roffe off the tracks. Hit by rocks of those who want to knock her down,Christina Schollin gives a outstanding Femme Fatale performance as Bibban, thanks to Schollin wearing a flirting, knife-edge rebellion streak, with a underlying romantic warmth for Lasse,away from the wild one.

This quirky road movie is an up and down ride as the protagonist encounters strange and unusual folks in his travels, most notably Fisher Stevens and Lili Taylor as a couple on their honeymoon who communicate via hand puppets. At its best, the movie is mysterious, bordering on fantasy territory with such oddities as a woman whose screams shatter icebergs and restart cars. I liked the portrait of a mystical foreign land in which anything seems possible.

Two men who underwent sex change operations (and tried living as women) before changing back talk about their lives in this intimate documentary. There is a lot to like in how the pair simply ask each other questions without relying on an interviewer or off-screen narrator. It all feels genuine and free-flowing and many of their recollections are intense, such as one describing how he stayed married to a man for eleven years without telling him.

2. Sommarnattens leende [Smiles of a Summer Night] (1955, Ingmar Bergman) (rewatch): 6.8 > 7.5 - My more lukewarm reaction the first time came more from expecting a different kind of movie when putting a Bergman in the Blu-ray player than from the quality of this very decent comedy. This wil probably be the most fun movie I will see the coming weeks, delving further into Bergman.
3. Det sjunde inseglet [The Seventh Seal] (1957, Ingmar Bergman) (rewatch): 8.2 > 8.5 - Last rewatch I was a little put of by some scenes, like the famous knight and death chess match scenes, cause they than felt like almost a parody on the intellectual art-house movie in itself. This time however those scenes were better than I remembered, while they deal with "heavy" intellectual topics they also still have a lightness to them. Even more I was way more impressed by how well balanced the movie is in tone overall between religious contemplation and lighthearted celebration of life plus how Bergman succeeds in capturing different aspects of Medieval life.

FTV:12:Thriller: A Cruel Picture (1973) (Sweden) 7.

Image

Stating later that the only reason he made this after his first movie flopped to recover losses by doing "A commercial-as-hell crap-film" (that’s the spirit!) and putting a clause in the cast contract to not reveal his real name, writer/director “Alex Fridolinski” (real name: Bo Arne Vibenius) & cinematographer Andreas Bellis poke Frigga at full force in the eye with a scuzz Grindhouse atmosphere, of sleazy, violent sex, eyefuls of skin on show,a real human corpse (!), and the Grindhouse classics: cars randomly blowing up and goons falling into empty cardboard boxes at a warehouse.

Holding the drug-addled Frigga hostage in a cheap set of Tony’s pad, all shot in one medium-shot and drab lighting, (clearly all filmed in one day) Vibenius thankfully unleashes Frigga (the name of Odin’s wife) into the wild to get revenge on Tony and his clients who abused her, who each get hit with the super cool trench-coat wearing Frigga unleashing her revenge in the surprisingly artful use of slow-motion, which Vibenius uses to turn each high kick and point blank head-shot into a ballet move for this black swan.

Rolling her sleeves up so much that the producers took a out a huge life insurance policy due to the two months of pre-production martial arts and gun training leading to real ammo being used, fittie Christina Lindberg gives a no holds barred
Turn, performing each deadly revenge attack with swift precession. Injecting saline solution as Frigga sinks into a heroin addiction, and saying hardly any word of dialogue for the majority of the film, Lindberg beautifully brings out in her washed out, withdrawn face the horror Tony has inflicted, which Lindberg gradually toughens up into a deadly gaze towards a cruel picture.

His face disfigured in a house fire, an upstanding citizen becomes a pariah overnight in his close-minded community here. There are potent bits early on: the low camera angle, point-of-view shots as he is taken away from the fire on stretcher; the doctors arguing about whether they should euthanise him while he can hear them because the scarring is so bad. Decent premise but I thought things soon became repetitive (lots of similar conversations).

Dragomir Mrsic is very good here as a mobster and has a touching relationship with his daughter who he ends up having to take along on business, yet this angle feels totally at odds to the college student protagonist's side of the story, having to pretend to be rich. The film manages to mount a few thrilling scenes as it bounces between characters, with a person tailing a person tailing who is tailing another person bit coming off particularly well.

This documentary investigates rumours of unpaid child labour on the African plantations where brands such as Mars and Nestlé source their cocoa from. It is a fascinating topic, especially as the filmmakers travel to Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire to interviews the locals. The thriller-like structure, with them having to sneak around and use hidden cameras, is not very helpful though. The film also tends to run over the same points again and again.

Strange events occur as an arsonist regrets burning down his business for insurance money in this unusual black comedy. While a narrative can be made out here, this mostly plays out as a series of loosely connected, darkly comic vignettes, photographed in a single unbroken take with a static camera. It is a curious approach and occasionally very effective, but I wanted more focus on the protagonist's world collapsing as he contemplates his misdeed.

Opening with an intense scene shot in vivid colour as a young man kills a prostitute before things turn black and white, this late career Ingmar Bergman film begins well. The film subsequently jumps back and forth in time as we see flashbacks of his troubled marriage, psychiatry sessions and interviews with his shrink and relatives, etc. This might sound neat, but the the film ends up so heavy on dialogue that it barely feels cinematic. Good ideas tho.

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!

This is a sweet enough friend and romantic love story, but it's told about people I generally find insufferable - basically, the social media "influencers" of 2003. It's fine, but nothing particularly special.
