Dogville, A New Medium for Film...
Given my theatre background, Dogville is extremely appealing to me. The Film completely changes the way Film medium is usually represented on the big screen. Not many filmmaker is willing to risk there creativity in other medium like live theatre.
I think it was at the turn of the century, there were something called televised theatre, which is the broadcast of live theatre performances. As the development of many new media technology and the "impossibility of nothing", live theatre is dying.
Seeing a film like Dogville for me, as a theatre goer, is quite exciting. Dogville doesn't belong to any film genre that's already existed, but the film itself is a new form of contemporary cinema. and I hope I can see more film work like it.
The Phantom of the Opera (2004)
The Phantom of All Musical Films!
I saw The Phantom of the Opera in Canada last week. Although I'm a little late compare to its early release date. But I saw it on the 21st of January, which is the nationwide release point.
The Phantom of the Opera made its first appearance on the reel in our technological era. The story seems submissive to the music and the spectacle, but it is still extremely moving and entertaining to watch. If Webber is the musical passion, then Schumacher is the musical madness who translated and wield the tune to its fantastical environment. Last but not least, Christine (Emmy Rossum) is a wise tearjerker.
The Hours (2002)
Time is not a line but a dimension.
The Hours is a very quiet film, but it had the power to interrupt my thoughts about life and death. The three outstanding actress(Nicole Kidman,Julianne Moore,Meryl Streep)brought "the life" alive. I think that the idea of bringing three lives into a unified whole is original and charming. However, it is pretty easy to confuse the audiences with the time switch in the film, but it turned out very clear. Director Stephen Daldry is great. But the most important thing that I learned from The Hours is that Never Avoid Life by death, but rather live to avoid death. Sometimes one should live the surface, not what underneath it, because the things underneath may sometimes "kill" you. And one last thing is of course--Time is not a line but a dimension.
Finding Nemo (2003)
My Clothes were wet when I stepped out the theatre!!
Marvellous, Marvellous. Bravo for our best animation of recent years. Finding Memo was a tough, tough feature film to make in terms of it's character constructions and underwater effects. I found that one of the unique thing about this film is that each fish(species) has a absolute mono personality, which pushed this animation into a higher level, and of course harder to make too. Thanks to our smart and hard working creaters. This film pushes animation industry to a position in which it should be by now, although the whole underwater scenery still look CG so to speak, but if we look back at toy story I, the fish are more real and people like. We have to accept that audiences are much more "comfortable" to see such a touching, funny, CG Feature Film. But I have to say that this is not the best a computer can do, this is just a milestone of animation industry, after N years, I'm sure that all the actors and actresses are retired and mousing themselves moving in front of a monitor.
