    Black Cat, White Cat


    What overwhelms me the most about Kusturica's pulsating, constantly chaotic and anarchic vision is the extent to which inert objects and God's creation seems to obey him: people, animals, natural landscapes, timing, circumstances, people's reactions, mechanical artifacts, the freaking weather... All natural and divine forces seem to be under a common agreement to be a part of Kusturica's operas out of control and dance under a rhythm of surreal absurdity. He doesn't direct people: he directs an entire world. Even…

    Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!


    This is the quintessential Meyer experience. He's more famous for his infamous quote about breasts than for being responsible for the official creation of the X rating of the MPAA. I would normally throw this to the trash can for demoralizing women, but even if his subsequent career and his public statements in the media would suggest otherwise, I say this film is a standout both in his filmography and in worldwide cinema aesthetically and thematically.

    Before you ask, this is not my first Refn movie. In that way, I can know that:

    - He still likes to dress his crooks with light grey pants and have some of them bald, like if they were still living in Denmark.
    - He still uses an awesome techno soundtrack (with some pop touches that I can forgive) to open his films and to close them. The underground nudist dive bars / seedy joints cannot be omitted, of course.…
