  • Annaatthe



    Reminded me a bit of Mullum Malarum in the intensity of the brother-sister dynamic but was otherwise a flatly lit, sickly sweet Rajinikanth blockbuster (still better than most movies).

    Edward Everett Horton cross dresses and falls down the stairs. All I can ask for.

    Bonjour Tristesse


    A tragic film about skin care. No matter the defenses, there will be sunburns and wrinkles and age. Even the immaculate Jean Seberg slathers face cream onto her cheeks. Preminger choreographs these narcissists in the most astonishingly complex widescreen compositions in his career. Privileged moment: the maid chugging a beer at the extreme left edge, as main characters natter about a casino in the middle ground.

    It turns out there was an escape. This is what I call the ol' switcheroo.

    This is a decent "save the white people from the other people" movie, but on the Brosnan scale I give it five out of five Brosnans. Some excellent Brosnan-ing here.
