(us) wrote: Grimy, dark and unrelenting the evils that befall the dregs of criminal humanity that inhabit the murkier streets of London may be, but this is energetic, attention-grabbing work with a driving soundtrack that suggests Ben Drew/Plan B can produce some vital work in the future.
(es) wrote: Nice family adventure movie as I enjoyed this one and made me wonder if this is a series. I would be interested to watch more of The Adventurer and the stories that are told.

Sadly, his part is small and the most exciting thing he did was spit beer. This is not a great movie but it's not the worst movie I've seen either. I enjoyed the brief moments of gore and liver eating.

(de) wrote: Films that use very little narrative and dialogue when conveying its major theme(s) often do not succeed. "The Wind Will Carry Us" (from Iran ) is an exception. It is mostly abstract and uses a lot of symbolism to tell about the human condition and how time passes one by. The film, from Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami, is fairly simple but the processes he use makes the film very notable. One has to really pay attention when watching this film. The story is told over a period of about two weeks or so but the film is tricky as it doesn't show the passing of days with the use of nighttime scenes or a fade out. Instead it uses a very subtle approach. For example, in one continuous scene where the main character is driving on a country road, Kiarostami only makes a slight change in clothing to show that we are now watching the same character in another day. While films with some type of a straightforward narrative are still my preference, "The Wind Will Carry Us" is memorable because the challenges it presents is its ultimate reward. Film as an art form is all the more realized under Kiarostami's creative vision. The images he creates and leaves us with are poetically and lyrically honest making us appreciate both the film medium and the craft of filmmaking that much more. That kind of an achievement in cinema is rare.
