Crop And Save
I saw this on the 2nd july at a preview and was really really impressed. my favourites of the series up till now have been the third one directed by Alfonso Cuaron, and the half blood prince (6th one). I was tentative about the 3d but actually it worked brilliantly and made the pictures even crisper. This film is a great achievement, sometimes i have considered these films as sell- outs, only looking for doing well at the box office, but they have never failed to entertain and this one makes the characters and their motives much more interesting and deeper.
The acting from some is still not to my liking and not up to the standard it should be. For instance alan rickman seems to be making fun of his own particular way of talking by ramping up every syllable, and rupert grint is a very mediocre actor who they still give these terribly clichéd lines.
The ending is good but i had some better ideas which i wont say now as to not give spoilers.
in general though, the film has a great visual style, fluid storytelling. the world created feels more real than ever and the characters make the film compelling.
well worth seeing and the best of all hp films.
Window Water Baby Moving (1962)
i liked his filmic style at first, his use of jump cuts and sped up footage was effective in portraying the woman's fear and angst although she looked calm on the outside. it also elevated the importance of the action of giving birth.
but i don't think the lingering graphic shots of the vagina bleeding did anything for the film and took me out of the rather mysterious tranquil feeling given off by the film previously.
he certainly knows how to make a film affecting but i won't want to watch it again and i don't think it conveyed any of the actualities of birth, the beauty and the miracle.
