Crop And Save
I saw the film last night at the AFI premiere in Santa Monica. The place was packed out and a lot of people couldn't get seats. The film has certainly created a lot of buzz and I'm not surprised. It's a truly remarkable film.
I'm not going to say much about the story (you really have to see it for yourself) but I will say that it's keeps you guessing right to the very end.
The scary scenes were very powerful. Both shocking and beautiful. They reminded me of Dario Argento. Very lush and surreal. But mainly the film was very creepy. Liam Neeson really nailed the role of the funeral director -- one minute gentle and compassionate, the next minute sinister and extremely dark. Christina Ricci was brilliant. She's an incredible actress and soooo beautiful (and yes, she gets naked -- this film is definitely R rated!). I also liked Justin Long, he's normally very lightweight but he showed he can act in this role.
A remarkable film. Hopefully everyone will be able to see it in theaters soon!
Just saw the trailer on Youtube
Blew my mind. The quality of the clip was pretty poor but you could still see that this director has an amazing visual eye. The sets were incredible as well. As I haven't seen the full version I can't really comment on the story, but from what I saw (and from other comments) the short film looks like a cross between Fellini, City of Lost Children and David Lynch. Very dark. Very atmospheric. And very very weird! I'm not surprised that the short film provoked so much buzz and so many comments (both for and against!).
She's just shot her first feature After.Life, a psychological horror with an amazing cast. I've got a feeling her first feature will be as unique and as stunning as her short.
