Three movies.. so different…so lovely
Changeling. You forget its Angeline Jolie. Her pain at the loss of her son is so palpable. And I do have a weakness for movies with historical relevance.
Kikujiro. I was just surfing through and hit on this. Funnier than Hangover you know. I was in splits throughout. So comical, so touching. The little sad boy, the stupid bikers, the frivolous games, mad man Kikujiro.
The Name of Rose. Dark. Mysterious. Again, a historical thriller. And of course, a murder mystery set in a secluded Italian monastery.. .could it fail to captivate? And Sean Connery too.
The Japanese have mastered the scary movie genre. Now, I have seen The Ring, Grudge 1 and 2, the newest addition being One missed call. The dead girl grabbing the legs or reaching out from the floor must be common scary element. You don’t scare me anymore.
Now watching Secretary. Thank God for World Movies.
