Certain films stay with you long after leaving the cinema while others are instantly disposable. ‘Berberian Sound Studio’ puts a dent in the mind that is sure to keep people pondering until the end of days.
‘Room 237’ screened at the Melbourne International Film Festival.
Stanley Kubrick’s ‘The Shining’ is over 30 years-old and the famous “Here’s Johnny” line may get all the attention, but the film’s enduring legacy is the maze of ideas Kubrick may or may not have captured. ‘Room 237’ is a fascinating documentary that explores the ‘The Shining’ and the interpretative landscape of cinema.
‘Sound of My Voice’ screened at the Melbourne International Film Festival.
Cults are bad. It’s the premise of every film made about those groups that deal in mental manipulation and Kool-aid. ‘Sound of My Voice’ plays the usual mind games you’d expect from a film about misguided worship, but there is more on offer than just white cloaks and false prophets.
Film festival favourite ‘The Beasts of the Southern Wild’ finally has a trailer and it’s easy to see why the film was a big hit at the Sundance Film Festival 2012 as well as being selected for competition at the Cannes Film Festival later this month.
The film has also been selected to play at the Sydney Film Festival 2012 in July.
No synopsis for the film really accurately captures its fairy tale style and by the looks of the trailer it’s a really tough film to pin a genre on, that might allude to why critics have been losing their minds over it.
Speaking of critics, it’s great to see Collider writer, Matt Goldberg getting a mention in the trailer.
