Quotes

Himself - Presenter: [about 1995 primitive cinema wave] In their manifesto they pledged a vow of chastity to the following daunting rules: the camera must be taken off the tripod, the shape of the screen must not be wide, no set should be built, real locations should be used, no props should be brought to those locations, no music should be used, no lighting can be added, no flashbacks, and the director must not take credit.

The 1990s Around the World
23 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This time we are traveling to Iran and Hong Kong... but we are also going to my genre of choice...

The 1990s brought the world Japanese horror, with "Tetsuo" and a man who turns into metal. Inspired by David Cronenberg, who intertwined humans and technology and gave birth to cyberpunk. We also had "Audition", which welcomed Miike to America. Not to mention "The Grudge" and countless others Cousins does not get into.

Cousins says there is a "stillness" as a counterpoint to "violence", making Japanese horror films horror with a Buddhist aesthetic. I like that.

Oh, and we cannot forget Lars von Trier and company, who really tried to escape the studio setting and go artistically independent. (I am not sure how the "and company" has worked out, but von Trier is now a living legend.)
