Yang is very content to let the scenes speak for themselves, without feeling a need to use dialog.
What makes this film so unpleasant, and yet so riveting, is its honest treatment of the story.
Just when you think you have it figured out, the movie forces you to rethink everything you just saw.
A movie can’t get by on just flashy characters, a tacked on love story, and over-the-top dialog.
It’s not a classic by any means but it’s a far sight better than what I thought it would be.
Despite a few technical glitches, The Faint held the crowd in their hand.
The movie soon becomes a delirious ride through all sorts of fantastic settings.
An enthralling thriller that uses quiet tension, superb acting, and a sharp script to keep you interested.
This is everything that I want from a Godzilla movie.
This film throws so much at you it’s nearly impossible to take in.
To be honest, this film may just be the best film I’ve ever seen that deals with the subjects of grief and loss.
Chow Yun-Fat aside, the rest of the movie seems too unfocused, unexplained, and uninspired to be enjoyable.
There are times when the movie gets a little mushy and melodramatic, but for the most part, it’s a blast to watch.
My second favorite movie of the “Three Colours” trilogy, Red is not without its weaknesses.
The humor is wonderfully low-key and dark, the dialog is witty, and the performances are incredible.
If you’re looking for a film that doesn’t trivialize the struggles that faith and conviction can bring, this is a good one.
It almost feels oppressive and the movie’s attempts at humor aren’t enough to shirk that feeling.
Yes, the book was much better.
For a movie that’s about a famous swordsman, we actually see very little of him.
A fun picture to watch if you’re in the mood for something twisted and “effed up.”
