(ag) wrote: "City of Life and Death" gives that other crime against humanity, the Rape of Nanking, the same treatment as the holocaust received in Spielberg's "Schindler's List": a harrowing, black and white depiction of sheer horror barely counterbalanced by heroic acts of virtue.The film is quite powerful, though the first part looks a little too much like a U.S. action movie, with CGI, gunfights and explosions galore. I also am a bit unsure about the legitimacy of turning such horrible events into dramas, rather than documentaries. Even trying to know about these things can destroy your sanity: American historian Iris Chang, for instance, fell into depression and committed suicide after researching the massacre. According to Wikipedia, she was "deeply disturbed by much of the subject matter of her research. Her work in Nanjing left her physically weak."Despite quite impressive crowd scenes, the film also fails to give an idea of the true scale of the slaughter, in which 250,000 to 300,000 people were killed. And because it (thankfully) tries to retain some decency, never going further than showing naked bodies and depicting gang rape from a distance, it also fail to capture the truly satanic nature of the sexual sadism that was perpetrated on Chinese women and girls (I found looking at the pictures on Wikipedia more revolting and traumatising than anything shown in the film.)There are some horrors we need to know about in a very abstract way if we do not want to be psychologically destroyed by them, and the Japanese atrocities of the 1930s and 1940s are definitely among them.

(mx) wrote: Though, I usually watched family-oriented animated films; but I guess, I am like wholesome vs taboo. I first encountered Ralph Bakshi's films when I was a teenager - I don't know how old. I started with "The Lord of The Rings," then "Wizards," that film became my favorite Bakshi film. And then I watched on YouTube : "Fire & Ice," "Cool World" (live action/animated), and this film "Heavy Traffic."Well anyway, Heavy Traffic is a film which begins, ends, and occasionally combines with live-action, explores the often surreal fantasies of a young New York cartoonist named Michael Corleone, using pinball imagery as a metaphor for inner-city life.In the film, New York has a diseased, rotten, tough and violent atmosphere. Michael's Italian father, Angelo "Angie" Corleone, is a struggling mafioso who frequently cheats on Michael's Jewish mother, Ida. The couple constantly bickers and try to kill each other. Michael ambles through a catalog of freaks, greasers, and dopers. Unemployed, he dabbles with cartoons, artistically feeding off the grubbiness of his environment. He regularly hangs out at a local bar where he gets free drinks from the female black bartender, Carole, in exchange for the sketches from the somewhat annoying Shorty, Carole's violent,legless barfly devotee. One of the regular customers at the bar, Snowflake, a nymphomaniac transvestite, who gets beat up by a tough drunk who has only just realized that Snowflake is a man in drag and not a beautiful woman. Shorty throws the drunk out and the bar's white manager abusively confronts Carole over this and she quits. Shorty offers to let Carole stay at his place, but not wanting to get involved with him, Carole tells Shorty that she's staying with Michael, and that they've been "secretly tight for a long time." Michael is turned on by her no-nonsense attitude and strong sense of self-reliance.This relationship arouses his father's racist fury as well as the jealousy of Shorty. Michael moves out of his parents' house and tries to make a living, often failing...OH! that's all I could tell you folks, you will have to see the film for yourself how it ends.I like Carole for her sassy, no-nonsense attitude. I love it how she told Michael off, after she told Shorty about her and Michael. So overall, I enjoyed this film, and also the film's soundtrack too, with the sounds of Chuck Berry ('Maybellene') and The Isley Brothers ('Twist & Shout').
