Following the Dogma rules does not make this film hard to watch... In the end, it is a great story and shows that Merendino can be a mature filmmaker. It's about two guys a Vespa and a trip from South Dakota to Los Angeles. It's funny, insightful and tragic

That said, this felt somewhere in-between Wes Anderson (color and look-wise) and John Waters (specifically in the *ahem* peeing/genital torture arenas). Probably his most straight forward film, and yet it felt a bit stilted when it came to the overall fluidity... though I suppose that's always been a bit of a problem for him. Overall very enjoyable, and pretty damn funny. More than anything I'm just glad to see this sort of filmmaking continuing to happen.

The cast was amazing so I was sold before I put the DVD in my computer. However, once the movie started, I was so impressed. The movie was a journey through Joshua's life. It's a journey through a lot of hardships. And, there are fabulous art references. Josh Hutcherson is definitely one of my new favorite actors. Yes, the movie had some boring plot moments that could have been better, but the acting and the beautiful direction pull the film through. I loved it :)
(kr) wrote: A one-hour mock-victorian fantasy done almost entirely in stop-motion (except for the opening and end scenes), "Blood Tea and Red String" is an obvious labour of love, having been written, directed, produced, animated, drawn, sewn and pasted by self-styled "creator extraordinaire" Christiane Cegavske. The film could be described as Brambly Hedge on acid and subtitled "Raiders of the lost ragdoll with a found river-egg in her womb." It has a dreamlike quality, with no dialogues. The characters include four caterpillar-eating crows with curly hair and pig's ears; three blood-drinking mice; a spider with a human head; a frog shaman; and two or three other animals or hybrids. I might have liked this kind of experimental work better in my late teens or early twenties, when I was very fond of the likes of Patrick Bokanowski or Jan Svankmajer (the latter's "Alice" being an obvious inspiraiton here.) But even though I am still entranced by stop motion, I found the film a little boring, with most of the scenes drawing too long, and especially the mice's card game. If you like the nonsense and cruelty of surrealism, amateur goth-girl art, psychedelic imagery and the pace of tortoise-drawn carriages, you should really enjoy it though. I'd be curious to see what Cegavske does next, for even if she hasn't roused my enthusiasm with this film, she has at least earned my respect.

I have a fondness for pictures that mish-mash grindhouse staples -- in this case, blaxploitation, sexploitation, women-in-prison, violent action, etc. You cover a lot of ground that way, and 'Black Mama, White Mama' manages to put it all together so it's consistently entertaining. Any time you've got Sid Haig appearing in a Pam Grier movie, that's always a good thing, too. The conclusion has something bold to say about what one's freedom should ultimately be used for -- so, extra-added bonus.
(us) wrote: The Raven was a huge disappointment with a paper thin characters that were generically pretty but had no personality. It was a slasher film with no actual slashing. The killer would wave his arm at people while holding a costume shop prop and the FX people would squirt a line of blood on the victims neck. Very amateurish. The sex scenes were long and the opposite of provocative. Save your time, by skipping The Raven and watching HellBent again.
