Derek Jarman: Life as Art

Derek Jarman: Life as Art

This ghoulish short has a truly gripping premise. Distracted by her boyfriend while driving on a quiet country lane, a young woman regains consciousness in their wrecked car to find herself hand in hand with her lover. But his lifeless hand, frozen by rigor mortis refuses to let go. John Hardwick's film is also a surprisingly tender reflection on the familiar vow: 'til death us do part'.

Lesley N (ag) wrote: I love Haruki Murakami's stories, so I was predisposed to love this, and Ichikawa does a sterling job of turning a slight delicate tale into a slight, delicate film that conveys all the complexities of a life lived and a relationship won and lost, never hitting you over the head with a plot line, and always leaving a little space for unanswered questions and imagined what-ifs. Magical.

Alex T (de) wrote: It may seem slightly odd, bizarre and confusing in its non-linear structure, but as the story progresses, you can begin to piece things together quite nicely. It is superbly directed, and acted tremendously by the three leads.

Johnathon W (es) wrote: Effective & atmospheric take on vampires that, while not perfect, demonstrated Del Toro's coming powers as a filmmaker. The cast is solid for the most part, with Ron Perlman especially effective as the boorish Angel. The one weak link is Tamara Shanath, who comes off rather expressionless as Gris's granddaughter, Aurora (even when she does some grisly stuff). Behind the camera, Del Toro makes great use on the vampire mythos, showing the horror of having both a thirst for blood & aversion to sunlight, and the eventual physical change is quite horrific. However, Gris's reasons for using the Cronos device is never completely spelled and the benefits of having it are never shown (it just seems like a bad deal for the outset). Overall, a solid Del Toro film and if you have a Hulu subscription, definitely worth checking out.
