Oslo 31st August, an adaptation of Le Feu Follet. Wonderful cinematography and sensitive direction. As per the 60s film, guy leaves his drying out hospital for the day to see old friends one last time and falls off the wagon again before finally OD-ing.
An antidote to all the summer comic book horseshit everywhere.
Just watched The Illusionist. I'm a die-hard Ed Norton fan.
speaking of which... just watched the prestige again (different movie i know but i group these things by "similar" things)
jeez what a great movie.
Likewise. I thought The Prestige makes excellent use of the "story told through flashbacks" device, and I get a big kick out of the gradual revelation that you are in fact watching a science fiction movie.
