(es) wrote: This might be the Filipino equivalent of The Departed, even with that shocking moment at the end of the film that you weren't expecting. If you watched The Departed then you know the one I mean. It's not as shocking in this film, since you're kind of expecting it, but it's a good moment nonetheless. I digress, this is a pretty damn good crime drama from the Philippines with a hint of reality as the events that happened, I'm assuming only the prisoners being let out to kill targets, actually adds an air of authenticity to the film. The film's opening credits feature highlights from real newscasts about the assassinations that were committed by the prisoners. Whether the real life story had anything to do with this story, where the people were being assassinated to get rid of all the underworld connections to facilitate Pacheco's run at the senate without any scandals. The film deals with corruption pretty much on every possible level. Politicians, cops, and even the prisoners trying to protect their positions of power by doing absolutely anything they can to stay right where they are. This is definitely a movie you've seen before, in fact I'm reminded of Elite Squad: The Enemy Within. That film was a grittier portrayal of the underworld, but this film also has that same grit, realism that made Elite Squad such a great movie. The story itself takes a while before it gets going and before the connections to Pacheco start becoming clearer, but the film handles this pacing issues very well and the film just has a confidence about it that ensures that it'll rise above the rest, even if the elements themselves are familiar. The score/soundtrack was also surprisingly good, it helped create tension in some of the more dramatically charged scenes. Another good thing about the story is that while there's no real resolution, none of the guilty parties in this assassination ring ever get charged with any crimes, but the suspicion is there to where you could continue with that if you were ever to do a sequel. But, at the same time, if you don't do a sequel, the story still comes to a satisfying conclusion, because the pressure is starting to mount up on Pacheco and those involved in his assassination ring. So, either way, the film has a satisfying ending. And that's not the only thing that can be picked up on if you were to do a sequel, Tatang's decision to do what he did, as he had lost everything, and the effects that his actions have on his mental state can also be explored in the sequel. Big fan of this film, it's certainly not The Departed, which is a classic, but it's still a pretty great crime drama and hoping to see more films like this, or just quality films in general, come from the Philippines.
(mx) wrote: Delpy & Rock play Mr & Mrs with kids from their previous relationships. All seems well until her rustic French family turn up to throw a few domestic grenades into the couples sedately settled lives. Seeing a meagre 44% viewer rating, I wondered how begrudging the audience was being. I guess seeing Chris Rock's name led to his usual followers of one-note, loud mouth "hysterical" characters to turn up-and then turn off-this rather intelligent light comedy. This makes for something resembling a Judd Apatow comedy but its less crass & a little more real. Delpy-who directs and stars-has made a very worthy & smart movie here, which only derails a little towards the final third, when it falls into the conventions of Rom-Com territory. Chris Rock is much more likeable playing low key-and still having his most decent comedy role in a film outside of one of his gigs. This proved a pleasant surprise.
(it) wrote: Love and Honor is even greater than Yamada's previous films Twilight Samurai and Hidden Blade. He has perfected his style of serene and subtle tales of ill-begotten samurai. Here we find a lord's poison taster left blinded after eating some out of season shellfish. What follows is a web of lies, slowly broken down. Each time the truth surfaces, things get a little worse. Like the films pace, the lies start as small, with Kimmura's wife saying that the fireflies have not yet come out, probably to stop him from missing such beautiful sites. Yamada even manages to make the audience appreciate the littlest insect, as a blind Kimmura is, unknowingly, pestered by a butterfly. It builds to a wonderfully tense climax and an excellent and underplayed duel. The visual lyricism and subtext of the dialogue is wonderfully scattered in the film. Despite the film's gloomy goings on, it is never a depressing film. In fact, it has an excellent sense of visual humour that works surprisingly well. Yamada has left it late in life, but his recent samurai trilogy rivals some of Kurosawa's classics.
