    One main gripe i had with La Notte is that although Antonioni creates beautiful imagery within each frame and the individual shots - are not only marvelous to look at - create the sense of isolation and disillusion coming from that life of sophistication..but there never seemed to be an actual rhythm between the shots. And in my opinion it minimized the impact of La Notte's ending and overall theme.

    *those horror directors and their sophomoroe films tho, the genre is def in good hands*

    A Nightmare on Elm Street


    Part of Hooptober4.0

    "One...two..Freddy's comin' for you.."

    Damn, that was great !

    The idea of a slasher villain that hunts down his victims in their dreams opened up a lot of possibilities and it delivered ! The film probably one of the few films I've seen so far that blends surrealism with reality/horrific imagery (the other two are Eyes Wide Shut & Eraserhead) and Wes Craven handles that - and builds suspense - wonderfully with memorable imagery that also enhances some…
