The Sky Has No Limits

“It has no time limit. You can start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best of it or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things that you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. And if you find you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button 2008 Brad Pitt

ZERO – AN AWESOME STOP MOTION ANIMATION SHORT FILM

In a world that judges people by their number, Zero faces constant prejudice and discrimination. He walks a solitary path until a chance encounter with a female Zero changes his life forever. Together they prove that through determination, courage, and love, nothing can be truly something.

So please, do not judge people because they are born different. Never ever! How would you feel if you are on the other receiving end? Never give up and always be strong as there is always hope. You might surpassed those who have ridiculed you.

This story has a huge influence on kids and all of humanity teaching them about friendship, perseverance, and the hardships in life.

A great Ausie Short!

Tree of Life

Very artistic…The visualization by Terrence Malick was profound.  Not much of words but usually action and pictures speaks louder than words.  I watched it in Blu-ray, so the graphic was very astonishing. A unique film but the lesson it gives is very universal…We can all relate to the lesson of the story…Impressionistic, suggestive, allusive, connotative, evocative, expressive, indicative, intriguing, symptomatic & symbolic movie………

I compare this movie to a Claude Monet painting “Wild Poppies”

The visuals is relatively small, thin, yet visible brush strokes; open composition emphasis on accurate depiction of light in its changing qualities often accentuating the effects of the passage of time with unusual visual angles just like the movie. 

Malizia 1973

Thank you for the good tip….Will definitely watch this movie..

Premise

The film is about the parallel desire of a widower and his three sons for their new housekeeper. The film challenged sexual taboo by presenting and mixing such themes as a teenage male sexually harassing an adult woman and her eventual rapacious response. [WIKI]

In the Realm of the Senses 1976

Suggested by a former schoolmate to see. Hey, whats stopping me.

Highly controversial 😉

THE PLOT

In 1936 Tokyo, Sada Abe (Eiko Matsuda) is a former prostitute who now works as a maid in a hotel. The hotel’s owner, Kichizo Ishida (Tatsuya Fuji), molest her, and the two begin an intense affair that consists of sexual experiments, drinking, and various self-indulgences. Ishida leaves his wife and family to pursue his affair with Abe. Abe becomes increasingly possessive and jealous of Ishida, and Ishida more eager to please her. Their mutual obsession escalates to the point where Ishida finds he is most excited by being strangled during lovemaking, and he is killed in this fashion. Abe then severs his penis and writes, “Sada Kichi the two of us forever,” in blood on his chest. (WIKI)

Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

Read the review of Roger Ebert and find it very interesting. Am compelled to look for this movie! Also, Eiko Ishioka, the great costume designer, did the costume and set design. (As per Roger Ebert, it is astonishing)  Big fan of her production work since she did M. Butterly and Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

The Housemaid

SYNOPSIS (BY ROGER EBERT)

“The Housemaid” is another example of the strength of recent South Korean movies. It takes place within the home of a very rich man, which includes his pregnant wife, his daughter, his mother-in-law, and the older wo­man who runs the household. Within this closed system, he enforces his will, buying his power with money and the enabling of the subservient women. Then he hires a young nanny.

I have not seen this movie yet but will definitely hunt this movie down. Also, really striking cover.

The Eye

The Eye Cantonese Version 2002

Jessica’s Alba’s Remake 2008

Well, I say the Cantonese/Mandarin version is a lot scarier than Jessica’s Alba’s version.

The Departed

English Version The Departed (2006)

Cantonese Version Internal Affairs (2002)

Infernal Affairs is a 2002 Hong Kong crime-thriller film directed by Andrew Lau and Alan Mak. It tells the story of a police officer who infiltrates the Triads, and a police officer secretly working for the same gang. Due to its commercial and critical success, Infernal Affairs was followed by a prequel, Infernal Affairs II, and a sequel, Infernal Affairs III, both released in 2003.

I suggest watch the original movie in Asia…Its cult status in Asia is like the God Father in the Western world…Amazing…………..
