(au) wrote: Gus Van Sant's Last Days won't attract many viewers, the fact is, to many people it would be very unentertaining, and only few would consider it a wonderful experience. You either love it or completely reject it, though I'm a bit in the middle. There are some parts that I love, some parts that I like, and some parts I think weren't good.This is an underrated work from Gus Van Sant. Last Days is the last part in his "Death Trilogy," which includes "Gerry" and "Elephant." This film concerns Gus Van Sant's meditation on Kurt Cobain's last days, though it was never a pure biography about him nor there was any character carrying his name, he is a big influence on this film and on the main character, Blake.Though I haven't seen the first two films, I became interested with this film, aside from having a taste for films that just wanders with its alienated character into nowhere, I'm also a huge fan of Nirvana, and Kurt Cobain is one of the few people that inspired me. It's hard for me not to think that he is Blake in here, everything is just perfectly characterized and displayed. Michael Pitt is rightly cast as Blake, he gave an excellent performance, he mimicked Kurt flawlessly.Last Days is minimalist in style, like I said many viewers will find it boring. Blake is a rock star, he has a drug addiction that will eventually kill him, and he spends most of his last days with himself right after he escaped rehab, just like Kurt. He's got nothing to do but to just roam around in and out of a mansion he calls home, and avoids contact from other people that would only talk to him if they needed him with something, and he doesn't respond very well. There's no connection in this film, people seems boring and always talking nonsense, Blake would rather talk to himself about something we don't understand. Sometimes it's chilling to watch Blake because he reminisce Kurt.It is not clear to me if whether he committed suicide or just unexpectedly whimpers off his addiction. There is a great scene here, where we see Blake's soul come out of his lying body and instead of descending into heaven, it climbed up. This is more of an experiment than a biography to Van Sant, who directed critical acclaimed films such as "Good Will Hunting," "Drugstore Cowboy," and "Milk." He preferred distant shots than close-ups, and is reluctant in showing Blake's face.It is a long pointless ninety-minute journey to many, but just like what Blake said in one of the lyrics of his song (a great song performed and composed by Michael Pitt himself) "It's a long lonely journey from death to birth."

I haven't read the book yet, so I don't have a detailed background on the story but from what I can tell the film seemed very grounded in the true story of Manson and the Family.

(ca) wrote: Very ordinary. Infact, I hated it so much it made my blood boil. The person that made it should stick to arthouse films and leave true stories to the professionals. Cinematography was fine, costumes, setting and casting was fine. The scripting and plotting was a figment of someones imagination. That speach by the Lt col of the 39th made me want to puke it was so pathetically weak. There was far too much BS in the film for it to be a real tribute to the no BS Australian soldiers of WW2. As one veteran of Kokoda who found the film appalling said "...it just wasn't like that..."

(it) wrote: If you can get past Chris Hemsworths terrible Scottish accent this is a lot better than the Snow White film. I suspect that's mainly down to the lack of the abysmal Kristen Stewart. This is quite fun and pretty to look at (I'm including Mr Hemsworth in that), and Sheridan Smith, Nick Frost and Rob Bryden add some much needed comedy element!
(br) wrote: This highly unusual Australian film from the 70's didn't get much recognition at the time but recently, due to a stunning restoration, it is finally getting the attention it deserves. This surreal character study follows a school teacher protagonist on an existential odyssey through the nightmarish landscape of small towns in the Australian outback. Upon initial release many audiences found it baffling and frankly upsetting. After all, animals are killed and the characters divulge in atrocious debauchery. However, upon closer inspection, our hero's journey is one of self-discovery and the trials of overcoming the fear of death. From Denial, Hope, Anger, Despair and Acceptance, he conquers each stage of death. Not surprisingly, Martin Scorsese champions the film. He even pays homage to it in Casino with the bird's-eye view of Sharon Stone throwing the dice in the air, which is a reflection of a gambling scene in Wake in Fright where the hero tosses gambling pieces in the air. There is also a subtle homosexual subtext that dances just under the surface, bringing into question whether or not our hero even has a sweetheart waiting for him back home. Is she a figment of past memories? Is she simply an excuse for a vacation when in reality he wishes to indulge in these debaucheries and very testosterone-driven activities. Wake in Fright is a frightening film that disturbs, provokes and leaves plenty for the viewer to reflect upon. A lost 70's classic that is only now finally getting its unique reputation and analysis that it deserves.
