But on the other hand, in practice all that means is it takes the worst parts of two already shitty devices and does them both.We get the nothing-plot and unnecessary brutality of the former coupled with the low quality and nonsense of the latter. If it's literally meant to be "found footage", why is there a musical score for the jump scares? Why is this woman who is clearly in her 30's telling the camera she is 24?And nobody could have saved how bad a lot of this script is, but the actors that they chose couldn't have pulled off a brilliant one. All the actors that is, except for Michael Rooker and Graham McTavish.Which brings me to Penance's one (kind of) redeeming feature: McTavish's Geeves. The villain of the piece is disgustingly horrific, and feels completely at odds with the lack of realism in the film surrounding him. He is a believable (and terrifying because of it) antagonist, and though it does not save the film at all, I cannot ignore the staying power of that character.There's that, some decent gore effects, and some girls get their kit off. But it doesn't come close to making up for the rest of what Penance put me through.

Somewhere between the world of surreal visual poetry and gritty documentary, we are taken to the land of the Steppe Nomad, and introduced to a herding family in the Kazakh plains. Spoiler alert: No... Borat is not in this movie! The direction is fantastic, similar to the landscape-friendly films of Werner Herzog, but with a "Nanook of the North" formula of portraying everyday life events. Unlike Nanook though, this doesn't pretend to be a documentary, and the cast behaves as if the camera isn't there. This collection of film students and small time stage actors does such a fantastic job portraying this lifestyle, that you may come to believe that they are actual herdsmen, who were tricked into acting for pennies in the Sasha Baron Cohen tradition. But in reality the cast prepared for months, by living on the Steppe as nomads, to learn all about their characters. There is not much to be said about the story. The plot revolves around a young man's coming of age in this exotic world as he is confronted with difficult choices about his future. The plot mainly exists to gather together several life-episodes from this nomadic world, which range from humorous to tragic to surreal. I would recommend this film to anyone interested in strange foreign cultures or good poetic realism (as this style seems to be called). In some ways this world is as beautiful and alien as Avatar's Pandora, but without the futuristic battle scenes, and camels instead of Navi. If however, you are looking for a murder mystery or comic book adaptation, Tulpan may not be for you.

Shooter is a good movie that could've been better with a rewrite. The acting is very solid, and the action sequences are fun. The plot is just ridiculous and there's a lot of moments that don't make a lot of sense. The direction by Antoine Fuqua is really good, and the stealth scenes are nicely done. I didn't care much about the characters as I find them to be forgettable, and that the script didn't try hard for it to work. I was very confused about what the villain's plan is, or why they set Wahlberg's character up, and if they did, then it was too vague for me to remember. As is, Shooter is going to be one of those films that I'm not gonna remember much about it, but I enjoyed Shooter for the time being.
