Also the perfect love letter to fans of the series, especially after abhorring so many with Season 2's Endless Eight, this movie pretty much makes up for it, and I am someone who watched all 8 episodes of Endless Eight, all in one day. With powerful imagery and symbolism, beautiful cinematography and amazing animation, this film is also truly scenery porn. Although the tone of the film is considerably less upbeat compared to the show for the most part, it still captures the essence of the show, with amazing work done by all the VAs, notably the two with the most screen time - Kyon and Yuki. Seeing the "normal" Yuki is also an amazing treat. Probably the best film that I saw that came out in 2010. Definitely worth waiting for the BD release for the high quality, and also warrants its 164 minute length.

Personally i think he needs to stay with producing and performing Music. Kings of South Beach had great potential to stive into something huge, the fascinating true story of another cop selling his tales into Hollywood cash must have been ripped off. with D listers + bad directing and a budget that can't afford my front door = crappy movie.

He then embarks on an affair with a lesbian woman half his age to get his drive back but all it did was cause friction with people from their past. The film turned out to be a good watch with good performances from Pacino and Greta Gerwig in particular
(au) wrote: David Gordon Green's first four films had such a unique style of paying attention to characters while also giving the audience the perspective on a story that would not have normally been shared. If this would have been made by anyone else, I'm sure Lila would have been cut out or created into a bigger role, they would have focused more on the relationship of Deel and the boys' mother, and when the boys escaped it would have been tense moments left and right. However, Green decides here to avoid cliches and give the audience something new. Undertow mixes fairytale elements with realism. It's a coming-of-age story mixed with thriller. Family drama mixed with road trip. Some also call it a southern gothic film. Whatever you want to say, Green provides you with enough here. Some filmmakers would be messy mixing so many genres, but Undertow is tightly scripted, shot, and acted. Only one scene aggravates me, and that's when Deel kills John. I didn't understand why Chris just stood there. He hears his dad fighting with his uncle and he's even trying to look in through the window for plenty of time, so why doesn't he rush in and stop them? There's a good connection between Chris and John. They might not understand each other all the time, but I don't think there was ever the feeling that Chris would be okay with him being killed. This seems like there's something I'm missing for the rest of the film being so spot on. This is Chris's film. It starts out with him spending time with Lila, then being chased away by her father and while running he steps on a board with a nail. It goes straight through his foot, but he continues running. It's comedic and painful to watch. From this scene we see Chris's stubborn attitude and something deep inside him that wants to cause trouble. When asked why he threw the rock through the window, the officer asks if he's angry about something and he says no. No reason, just likes to cause trouble. He also doesn't like that his father keeps him and his brother cooped up in the house. We discover that he and his brother were taken out of school when their mother died and they live in a house away from everyone else and don't talk to anyone but each other. That's why there's problems with Chris being interested in Lila. One day, John's brother, Deel, shows up. They haven't seen each other for quite some time and John offers him to stay. The music and the way the scenes play out lets us know there's something brewing under the surface. Deel is looking for the gold coins their father gave John. John tells the boys his father got the gold coins by giving a Mexican a nickel for crossing a river, then he found a gold coin in his pocket and kept crossing the river and each time got another gold coin. By the time he got 40 gold coins the Mexican disappeared. He must be the one who sends people across the river Styx and this is the gold they drop. It's cursed. This curse plays throughout the rest of the film. When the boys flee their home Chris refuses to spend the money. He steals to take care of Tim instead of paying for things with the gold. It's great to see the interactions with the people along the way. One is a couple who wanted children but their child died because it wouldn't breast feed. My favorite of them, though, is the last girl they meet and when she explains the wish in the bottle and if it reaches the ocean it will come true, but sometimes things weigh it down and it doesn't make it. So many scenes in here are beautiful while there's the undertone of something terrible chasing them. Chris tries to take care of his ill brother while they can't be seen by many people to avoid getting caught by Deel. I also loved the way Green opens it up to make the audience believe it's a true story, sort of like what the Coen brothers did with Fargo. Undertow mixes elements from the Grimm brothers and Mark Twain, while adding in a thriller element. It's pretty amazing and definitely worth more praise than it got.
