Image #1 is forbidden, what is it?

Sutherland evidently is the band's manager...gets played on 'XRT a lot, just your typical AAA rock tuneage.

Friggin' art-house movie posters make every foreign film look like a sex romp. :rolleyes: Which this movie in particular isn't, or so I have been told.

Bob Saget putting dirty words into penguins' mouths....I'm intrigued, especially because Samuel L. narrates.

I'm too tired to watch a bunch of old guys talk about bombs and shit! Those explosions are cool, though.

I'll watch the second half tomorrow.

pretty good film. it's by Lou Ye. a chinese film director i've never heard before. it's a tragic love story, but without those existentialist twists that wong kar wai puts in his films.

I saw a bunch of films at the Chicago International Documentary festival last week. Here's a quick blurb about each film that I saw.

Britian's First Suicide Bombers

This chronicles the lives of 2 young male residents of London whose frustrating lives turned them into radical Islamist terrorists. The film culminates with the 2 men strapping bombs on their backs and blowing up a Tel Aviv nightclub. Interestingly enough, the main focus of the film (Omar) had a bomb that short-circuited and never went off. After his partner's bomb went off, Omar tried to elude capture by swimming in the ocean where he ended up drowning. Overall, this was an interesting look into the minds of what drives these guys into killing themselves all for the "cause".

Grade: B

Hot House

This film spends the majority of the time interviewing Palestinian extremists in Israeli prisons. All these people were fanatics before they arrived in prison and now they're even more fanatical and hate jews even more. Hardly a surprise. If anything, it shows that the palestine/israeli conflict isn't getting better anytime soon. I can't say I learned much from this one.

Grade: B-

The Stone Silence

This chronicles the 2005 story of an Afghan woman who was stoned to death for committing adultery. The international media latched onto this story causing a worldwide backlash. The director of this story visits her hometown and interviews the families that were involved. I didn't like the way the director essentially turned the film into an Afghan version of "Law and Order". Essentially, the story has never been proven - leaving the audience to wonder. The soundtrack was awful and when the Q&A followed the film, several audience members blasted the director for the poor choice of music.

Grade: C+

Manda Bala - Send a Bullet

This won the documentary prize at Sundance this year. Directed by Jason Kohn, a former protege of Errol Morris, this depicts the political corruption and brutal kidnapping crimes in Brazil, most notably in San Paulo. This film had Errol Morris written all over it. The interviews with men who spend their entire careers as kidnappers were especially chilling. The differences between the haves and have-nots in Brazil make it all the more obvious as to why Brazil has one of the highest crime rates in the world. Note to self - do not plan on visiting Brazil anytime in this lifetime.

Grade: B+

Trelew

This recounts the story of the 1972 massacre of 18 Argentinean political prisoners in a remote prison in the city of Rawson located in the bare Argentinean Patagonia. Retold by the 100+ prisoners who overthrew the main penitentiary in Rawson, a group of 18 of them were stranded at the airport (a group of fellow prisoners hijacked a plane and left without them). The stranded 18 were then massacred at a remote military prison. This was a fascinating story throughout - from the elaborate plans to overthrow the prison followed by the chilling conclusion. Good stuff.

A Lion in the House

I discussed this upthread when I saw it last week. This was by far and away the best film that I saw this week and was actually one of the best films i've ever seen. Filmed over a period of 6 years, the film follows the lives of 5 extraordinary children stricken with cancer in Cincinnati Childrens Hospital cancer ward. All 5 children's (and their family's) stories are told in heartbreaking detail. Most importantly, this film is not meant to shock. The directors handled the stories with exceptional grace and compassion. The film is 4 hours long and I cried for at least 2 of them. I'd imagine this film would be extremely difficult for those that have children (I don't). At the minimum, it would offer parents a sobering dose of perspective. I guarantee you'd hug your kids alot more after seeing this.

Grade: A+

Yeah, def one of the best Bond flicks. The new guy kicks ass. Tended to get a bit obvious near the third act (and the pop song during the opening credits was flat-out horrible), but on the whole this was quite enjoyable. Loved the free running sequence.

I watched Infernal Affairs as a followup to The Departed recently. It's interesting to compare the two films. IA seems like a Cliffs Notes version of TD with surprisingly more warmth and humor (or is it not so surprising?). Funny how the two protaganists of IA actually look a little like Damon & DiCaprio.

Also note the totally cheesecake, American-style, completely fabricated imagery for the box.

My favorite episode was "When Food Goes Bad," where the leftovers revolt and General Chow takes the Baby hostage.

"These are our demands: 1. Jogging outfits, 2. A Comprehensive Dental Plan, 3. 40 Million Hellicopters and a Dollar... What's that [listens to his cabbage] Oh, that's 40 Million Dollars and a Helicopter, and 4. Our Own Saturday morning cartoon show."
