Still Life

Still Life

Early video-installation by Dalibor Martinis, where the artist turns the TV set into a still life and info news into "circulus vitiosus".

From Iran, Tabiate bijan, by Sohrab Shahid Saless, is a minimalist study of lonely, isolated existence. Mohamad Sardari has spent thirty years at a remote outpost raising and lowering a gate to keep road traffic from crossing tracks when a train passes. He lives with his wife in an unadorned shack; a few bare trees dot the threadbare landscape. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Marty is a struggling writer in Hollywood who wants to finish his latest script, as he only has the name so far: "Seven Psychopaths". His friend Billy, a temperamental actor who makes a living by kidnapping dogs with his partner Hans, tries to encourage him finish his script. One day, Hans and Billy kidnap the dog of a violent mob boss, who doesn't take kindly the disappearance of his dog, so begins a wacky adventure that will inspire Marty to finish his script. While I love the three leads and I've heard good things about this film, I was preoccupied as this falls into what I label 'nonsense films' (the plot is ludicrous, irrelevant and keeps getting crazier as it goes along, the characters are cartoons, comedy that tries too hard, fast pacing, and overconfident direction) and normally I don't like them (I hate "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" and I have mix feelings about "The Big Lebowski", just to mention a few examples) but after seeing it I have to say I was surprised. "Seven Psychopaths" has fantastic acting (each actor understood the type of film they were in), the characters are the cartoonish type that you would expect for a film like this, but they are so over the top and full of charisma (I haven't seen such dumb, over the top but charismatic lead characters since John Goodman in "Big Lebowski"), McDonagh's direction comes up like a mixture of Ruben Fleischer and Tarantino (imagine a Tarantino script with "Zombieland" directing style), the dialog is hilarious (even if it is an attempt to duplicate Tarantino's style), and it is perfectly fast paced. "Seven Psychopaths" is an over the top film that works thanks to its cast and its Tarantino wannabe script. Highly enjoyable, dumb, meta, over the top, charming, and it doesn't overstay its welcome. One of the few nonsense films I like.

Tom E (br) wrote: This movie would have worked best as a short film. There was just some times too much zombie bashing. Though, I did like the main character and his banter with his feet was great at times, I felt like a lot of the time the movie dragged for a long time. But, it's worth a watch.

Robert R (es) wrote: Matthew Vaughn's fantasy/adventure/romance/comedy evokes feelings of - dare I say - "The Princess Bride," and in all the right ways. "Stardust" is silly, quirky, imaginative, hilarious, and inspiring all at once, further cementing Vaughn's multi-faceted brand of filmmaking, whilst relating a genuinely engaging story at the same time.

Faial K (ru) wrote: There're lots of things that i think just wrong about this film- sloppy direction, unsophisticated execution...i almost stopped watching it after the first 20 minutes... but i'm glad i didn't...when the film reveals its catalyst, it just shocked and at the same time mesmerised me scene after scene... the way it interwines between the impossibility of love between two strangers and tragedy of human beastility is just brilliant... sometimes i forget that film is about a story after all.. Aparna Sen may not be a good director...but she's definitely a great storyteller....

Kim B (br) wrote: it is full of 90s cheese? did it have plot holes? were the characters one-dimensional? yes! that being said it was very creative and unusual which u have to admit is very rare in the horror genre. i really liked the scene where she is searching for boone and uncovers the underground lair with all the diff horror characters. i liked the mystery and how u never knew where the story was going. it was kind of a fantastical movie like legend or the labyrinth. i liked the mythology, dreams, and prophecies of Midian. if the movie would've just stuck to Midian without all that extra plot complications it would've been better and shorter.
