American Psycho


Donnie Darko

Jacob’s Ladder

Buna ziua. In timpul in care nu am mai scris nimic pe blog am facut asa: am terminat toata seria Futurama scoasa pana acum, am inceput si terminat toata seria Californication disponibila, m-am uitat la High Life, toata trilogia Matrix (din nou, si nu, nu m-am uitat pentru scenele de ciomageala generata pe calculator), m-am reuitat la a A Beautiful Mind, I Am Sam si Basketball Diaries si am mancat popcorn. Frumos nu? Pentru cei care nu au vazut toate cele enumerate mai sus, recomand. Imi e prea lene sa le pun link la toate pe imdb, asa ca google it. Si va las cu un stand up al lui Jim Carrey, la care sper sa VA radeti.

P.S. Restul partilor pe youtube, in cazul in care nu va apar direct in playerul de aici.

1989, 21 de sezoane, 21 de ani, still funny. Am terminat acu vreo 2 saptamani toate sezoanele si imi pare rau.

Pot sa spun ca este cel mai bun film care l-am vazut pana acum. Daca as putea, as forta toata omenirea sa se uite la el, nu doar sa-l recomand. Asta pentru cei care nu l-au vazut, avand in vedere ca e din ’68. A da, efectele speciale pentru vremea aia sunt incredibile.

altered states

Imi pare rau, eu nu pot sa spun decat ca e un film incredibil. Tineti cont de faptul ca se leaga in general de socializare, interactionare fizica si sentimente. Asa ca va las sa cititi asta (si tineti minte, fara LSD inainte de film!):

I have serious late fees on my video account because I just didn’t want to give this movie back. It is stunning that a film with special effects this beautiful and fitting was made in 1980, but that wasn’t why I kept watching it over and over.

I tend to be incredibly critical of most Sci-Fi movies on technical grounds (spoiled by a physics degree and 5 years of philosophy graduate courses) so I was stunned by the tightness of this movie. Obviously it’s fiction and at some point goes off the deep end scientifically, but like the best X-files episodes (but much better), it leaves you impressed by how well it justifies its leaps of fancy.

Movie premise (not a spoiler):

Jessup is a young hotshot professor at the Harvard Medical School in the early 70’s. His original work focused on the neurological deformities among schizophrenics. Allegedly (and this IS true) only advanced schizophrenia is visible in the structure of the brain–early schizophrenia is not, though people who suffer from it still experience similar mental problems. His original research focused on explaining why this is the case (not featured in the movie; left implied). Apparently, there are no models to explain how the neurological deformity associated with schizophrenia is caused (maybe false, but not stupid) so Jessup starts taking seriously the idea that the MENTAL disorder considered to be early schizophrenia actually CAUSES the characteristic change in structure. This is a pretty wild conjecture, I agree. Remember though that most movies ask you to make much bigger leaps. What’s classy about „Altered States” is that it correctly treats this as a wild conjecture and Jessup receives quite hard time from his colleagues for thinking something this flaky. In an attempt to discover the physical mechanism by which thoughts affect physical structure, Jessup begins experimenting with altered states of consciousness in a sensory deprivation tank, later in conjunction with processed hallucinogens from the Amanita Muscaria mushroom. Well, it’s no spoiler to say that he finds evidence for his theory that mental states can have an effect on morphological structure. By warping his mind enough, he undergoes several of these changes himself.

Another somewhat questionable theory the viewer is asked to accept is the idea that memories can be written in DNA and inherited. This amounts to something like innate knowledge. Again, people believe crazier things, and this isn’t too much of a stretch for fiction. It’s certainly true that instincts are inherited and innate: for example, babies „remember” how and when to suck (as do most recent movies of the Hollywood pedigree). Some research shows that fear of snakes may be innate, and if so, it must be encoded somewhere in our DNA. Well, according to the movie, some of these encoded memories are latent and not retrievable to the modern Homo Sapiens (no longer useful for our survival). However, some altered states of consciousness can cause us to conjure up these vestigial memories. Well, a little cooky for the New England Journal of Medicine, but too crazy to accept as a movie premise? Hardly!

This is the first movie of its kind since „2001” where a savvy viewer doesn’t have to slap her hand over her eyes and say „come on, that is soo implausible!”

What’s more, this solid science fiction premise is embedded in a script with excellent dialogue and three dimensional characters. William Hurt does an excellent job. I have to agree with other reviewers that the ending was a little cheesy, but it didn’t bother me when I watched the movie. By the end the film generates so much good will you are able to forgive just about anything, and it’s really not so bad.

Vizionare placuta!

Waking Life
Waking Life

Waking Life este un film destinat numai pentru o categorie de oameni, cei interesati de aspectele filozofice ale vietii, metafizica si in general ideea de o viata care de fapt este un vis… ma rog, cine se uita atent intelege. Recomand din tot sufletul meu de om fara suflet.

Alpha Dog
Alpha Dog

Alpha Dog cred ca este singurul film comercial care mi-a placut prin faptul ca reprezinta chiar realitatea. E atat de greu sa faci o chestie care in alte filme se intampla in intervale de maxim 5 minute. Veti intelege de fapt ce am spus abia dupa ce se termina filmul. Vizionare placuta.
