I looked around but could not find a good translation for "fisik" anywhere. GAS was from the UK and local languages don't seem to translate "fisik" to "medicine", but it definitely has that connotation. As I have been watching an unending stream of cat rehabilitation videos recently, I thought it fitting to check out the first one. The kitten is adorable, and whatever liquid is being used to nurse it to health must be pretty good because the feline is drinking it down greedily. The point of the actors is a bit lost to me, but the video is cute if kind of pointless.
I love the opening sequence and Tim Burton's blend of German Expressionism, steam-punk, and BDSM styles. Edward's interaction with the community is an exercise in xenophobia and scapegoating, and it's generally very depressing seeing such a nice person treated the way that he is. The movie has a lot of continuity errors that get to be a bit annoying after a while, and the fact that Kim never goes to visit Edward even after most people have probably forgotten about…
Though I originally was not a fan of how Sonny teaches Julian, as an adult I like the issues the film addresses. It's very formulaic, but it's a common thought that just being a friend to a child and letting them do whatever they want is what a good parent does, when that actually denies them structure and the stability that they need for good growth. The film has some very cliched moments and gets repetitive in it's joke delivery…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Definitely a film that makes you think. Cinematography among the best I've ever seen, but at the same time I think that most of the scenes lingered too long. It is one thing to pause for gravity and emphasis, it's another to be sitting at a crossroads, not moving and just staring at what is basically a slightly moving picture in a film. The sepia contrast images were just beautiful, and really the whole film is beautiful from an art…
