TOWELHEAD. Pretty ok high profile drama. 13 year old half libanese half american girl starts to explore her sexuality. This came from TV actually, so that's the reason I even came across the movie. Start with stepfather offering assistance of trimming her pubic hair, continues to be sent out to live with her real father. various conflicts of cultures colliding. Name calling, dubious interracial realitions, neighborhood honky fingerfucking her virginity, black guy from school dis-approved by his father performs 20 sec intercourses.
It is, really just... hmm, lets say "intelligent movie", just drama about the problems on teenage life in multicultural society, but for me it was most of all entertaining due all the catchy lowest-interests topics: racism, taboo sexuality, abusive behavior, etc.

But talk about lowest interest and taboos, while Towelhead is artistic enough to be actual movie, you can see opposite: Happened to have displeasure of seeing from TV this turd called Extreme Movie. I guess, you could list many of the same "taboos" in that context too... but come on! Maybe for being american child, you could find it amusing to see few quick tits and asses, fart humor, jokes of STD's and fucking sheep & midgets, but one wonders how damn worthless garbage is being sold as youth comedy? Of course, what else should have expected, but well, works as reminder that all what includes some sort of "offenses" and supposed "extremes", ain't worth 60 seconds of your life.

the new Burton's Alice in Wonderland with 3D. Fucking 12,50 euro for ticket, it better be good. Thinking of Disney behind this, and K-11 rating, it is suprisingly dark... and most of all just surreal / weird. I do question if it's really movie for kids or not? Some moments are probably like bad LSD trip. Moments like the tea party gone bad, it's insane. Music is oppressive classical music - until the subtitles and the awful radio pop enters. This is like resurrection of Alice actually. Now she is 19, and has only old nightmares of wonderland. When drastical moment of live - semi-forced marriage is waiting, she again happens to fall into hole and repeat many of the old patterns like before. Johnny Depp does great role. Hidden messages are different than in original. Now it seems to circulate a lot around the role of woman and individuality etc, but well. Visually very nicely done.

Now, when you think about it, if you could match together directors and artists, perhaps if you'd take someone like Mark Ryden with movie making ability of Burton, what would be result? I don't know how many are familiar with mr. Ryden's work, but maybe that would require topic of it's own. Utmost genious. Already as it is, many of Rydens ideas and visual bombardment looks like it could have been used as guide for the movie... hmm.

it is suprisingly dark...


you can say that again. I took a few peaks behind the fancy glasses and it was supposed to be daylight in the movie but every lighting always ends up looking dark ish.  there was a neat sexual tension between the hatter and alice in that, then you were too smal , now youre too big... scene.  but this 3d thing hasnt blossomed into anything spectacular yet.  average burt movie too. but why not go see it anyways. remember to bring a bag m&m and somebody who lets you fondle their crocth during the movie.

this is going to be good(hopefully) valhalla rising

It is supposed to be very good. Not the typical epic movie.
All Nicolas Winding Refn's movies are excellent and he's pretty daring changing subjects all the time. I have recently watched his Fear X, lynchian atmosphere yet more realistic, with disturbing soundtrack by Brian Eno. There is not much happening during the movie and it is quite slow, but the overall atmosphere was choking me.

I havent seen that but a couple of days ago I watched bronson. I thought id be all over it but it left me a little cold. the guy looked just right but I found it to be decent rather than really good. im almost certain that valhalla is going to be really enjoyable. a well made period piece with personal take on it. whats not to like.


edit: im no big time collector but pushers can be found on my shelves. good stuff and like tiny says smalltime scumbags are cool.

Bronson is very good in my opinion but very different by the Pusher trilogy and the amazing Bleeder, who definitely has a lot in common with Gaspar Noé. Same reds, similar storyline and environments. Less lysergic, but definitely sharing the same despair.
I loved Bronson but it goes in arthouse direction rather than the intimate violence and low lives tales who made me love his work.

The Pusher trilogy was great. The second film flagged a bit but any lost ground was seriously regained in the third and final film. I liked Bleeder a lot too.

There is talk of Refn doing a viking film next which sounds promising. It's high time for an authentic and bloody viking epic in the style of the old Swedish/Icelandic masterpieces Hrafninn Flygur and I Skugga Hrafnsins.

And that is what sloppy reading will do for you. I will buy this at some point. I need to see Antichrist first.

I really want to see Antichrist. After reading an interview with Willem Dafoe in regards to the movie I was sold. Unfortunately it's US release was extremely limited so I couldn't see it in theaters.

i was lucky to see it at the local art theater and it is very much worth your time.  they handed out pamphlets with the ticket that read "If you are light of heart and stomach read me first" I didn't want to spoil it for myself and I won't for you, but it is a surreal film of the finest quality featuring 2 very memorable scenes of extreme violence.

Antichrist is ok .
It's shocking only for easily shocked people of course , but it has really beautiful scenes .
I love the slow motion at the start .

Antichrist was brilliant. Didn't find it shocking, yet it has a morbid/desperate atmosphere for big part of the movie. An intelligent mix of arthouse and survival horror "the French way".
I have been a big fan of Von Trier, especially his early works and this is some sort of mix of many of his past works and something new. Actors are brilliat. The opening scene strikes were it is supposed to strike and the surreal ending really made me happy.
