(de) wrote: Fans of Director Lee Jeong Beom's Ahjussi, marketed as The Man From Nowhere abroad, may not have the same feeling when Somi connected with Tae Shik. The film follows Gon, a Korean hitman who immigrated to America when he was very young, and was subject to his mother's suicide at an early age. He becomes an experienced hitman, but grows with a heart still, making time in the opening of the film to make a little girl smile...but unfortunately, soon after, that would be the same little girl he accidentally kills, along with her father, the intended hit. Wracked with guilt, he decides to protect her mother, the next target. It makes for an interesting plot line, but it is regrettably overshadowed by excessive violence and out of place foul language. Where The Man From Nowhere succeeded is that it built upon emotion and was thought provoking, at times comical and heartwarming. This film jumps into bloody action and sometimes sickeningly so, and at times, it's not even in the same league at all in any aspect, action or storyline, as The Man From Nowhere. Director Lee certainly did not make a memorable piece (in a good way) with this film. Too focused on action that satisfies little, when he should have gone the Ahjussi route. Though Jang Dong Gun and the leading lady Kim Min-hee act wonderfully, along with a well acted brotherly role by Japanese Korean actor Brian Tee, the rest of the cast either overact, are killed off too early, or just curse too much. It's a bit of a disappointment from Director Lee, but it's not to say I won't be expecting a comeback.

(es) wrote: I finally got round to seeing Terence Davies' much-vaunted 2008 documentary, Of Time and the City last night and I was not disappointed. Such was the critical fuss surrounding its 2008 release that I wonder why it took me two years to getting round to watching it; when one considers that I have had a copy of it for the best part of a year and that it's only an hour and twenty minutes long, it starts to look like laziness. But then you have to bear in mind that a largely black-and-white, docu-biography about the city of Liverpool, memory and nostalgia isn't the easiest watch. Composed largely of archive footage of the Liverpool of the 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond, it recounts Davies' earliest memories of his family, the city and his interaction with both. Born into a working class Catholic household, the two pillars of church and class dominate much of his reminiscences, his homosexuality providing a counterpoint and much existential angst. What might have seemed like run-of-the-mill images are lent an austere splendour and genuine poignancy by a brilliantly selected soundtrack consisting of Mahler, The Swinging Blue Jeans, Bach and more. The real star of the show, however, as Mark Kermode would surely tell you, is Terence Davies' rich, baritone narration. His dense, lyrical musings reward serious thought, frequently citing as he does luminaries such as Eliot and Engels. It is exactly this serious quality that makes me want to watch it at least another time. Certainly one to catch on DVD.

(de) wrote: No one could accuse Melville of not taking his time . . . the film is admittedly slow (it takes an hour just to get the main plot rolling) but its an effective way to tell the story because it makes the few moments of action feel unpredictable and its refreshing to see a movie constructed this way.

(mx) wrote: Decent movie. Good acting, the violence is amped and the movie itself is super gritty.The thing that mars it though is the poor writing, by the book plotting and vacations from reality that it occasionally takes.Dark stuff.
