William Blake's poetry throughout the film is haunting...Listening to "the endless night and sweet delight"...
Johnny Depp himself when he reviewed the film, he said:
"...a perfect harmony of morbid enlightment..."
Ran is an awesome film. That bit where you know who gets decapitated, I was laughing like a lunatic. She made Goneril look like a pushover...
No Country For Old Men
Good, but not great, It made a few odd choices about how it would pull itself into the final stretch. Felt like 2 parts movie and 1 part epilogue that didn't quite put a decent full stop on the whole affair.
And buggered if I know what Tommy Lee Jones' final speech was about?
I know it's based on a book but when you're in the cinema for 2 hours you do have expectations about a beginning, middle and end...
Earlier this week I saw National Treasure 2-it was a good action-adventure. Lots of "holes" in the story IMO but it was suitable for the whole family and entertaining as long as you don't ask too many questions.
Saw "Juno" today. Very good-very realisitc take on teenage pregnancy. Sweet, funny yet poignant.
Went to "P.S. I Love You" a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed it. The story was a bit cliche I suppose but the cast was great and Ireland was beautiful. ( And I LOVE Gerard Butler )

Gaston-best of luck in whatever you decide to do.
