(au) wrote: I read about Painted Skin: The Resurrection months back and a trailer that got me interested in seeing it, but had to wait for it release in the US. Now that I finally got my copy of the film I could say it's one of the most beautiful way a love story has ever been filmed and captured it so strongly. Painted Skin: The Resurrection plot is better left not summarize into a simple a sentence. It's an experience that requires the audience to suspend all disbelief in order to enjoy it. It contains an interesting lore on demons, a captivating love story involving demons, and enough set pieces to ravel any major blockbuster. I have to say I have not seen the first Painted Skin, but that didn't prevent from enjoying this any less. What makes this romance story interesting as it unfold is how it shot. Breathtaking photography is always on screen making one visually mesmerizing experience. The attention to detail on the sets as well the costumes are worth noting. It helped me become immerse in the movie in such way I was taken out of my reality. The special effects are well done and it's nice to see CG not used as a mean for explosions or giant robots. The acting is spotless from all of it actors. I particularly enjoyed Xun Zhou who manages to be seductive as a demon without resorting to nudity. I do have a minor complain about some of the actors being underused. My favorite being the very funny Ming Yang who didn't have a major role in the movie, but that's just a small complaint. The great production values and effort put into this film far outweighs any negatives one would have with this fantasy film. Painted Skin: The Resurrection is an interesting as a romance story can get in the fantasy genre. It offers beautiful visuals to go along with an great plot that will have anyone hook on it.

The idea and the rescources were simple none the less, but I feel the issues presented didn't need to be over shadowed by Hollywood glitz. My only issue with this film was Sarah Jessica Parker. I foud it surprising to see her star in a movie that tackles heavy issues, but unfortunately, I saw a little too much Carrie and not enough of Sarah.

Great performances from Joan Allen, William F Macy and Reese Witherspoon plus a marginally less good performance from Tobey Maguire who I think was still finding his feet somewhat as an actor at that stage. Fabulous use of black and white/colour changes to tell the story. And that swooning scene with the falling petals I'll never forget. One of my greatest favourites.
(br) wrote: Pretty good (true) story, but I wanted more about the emotional effects of denying who you are, the shame that Perel either felt or didn't feel. That was mostly represented in a couple of very lame dream sequences, while the rest of the movie was a mere retelling of events without much emotional context. I was engaged, but not impressed.

What should have been a universal film about opening up the medium of film without a cultural or political angle turned into a propaganda film with experimental techniques here and there much like Battleship Potemkin but without the plot. The beginning of the film claims that they were trying to make an international film language, but the style subjects of photography and the ideology are far to communist. I will give the film credit in that some of the camera techniques where interesting and the stop-motion camera near the end was pretty neat, but there is no reason a 66 minute film should take a seasoned viewer like me 6 sittings to get through. That's the same number of sittings it took for me to finish Inland Empire, a 180 minute surrealist mess of a film and I actually liked that movie. maybe it was an important experiment at the time, but not everything gets better with age.
