Samâ sorujâ (1972)
I really loved this movie
I found this movie really interesting and captivating because it was about people lost in a foreign country which culture and way of life was so different from theirs that they would almost never get accustomed to live comfortably in. So they are faced with probably lifetime of drifting like a human rat on the streets of one of Earth's capital or going back to indescribably senseless and pointless horror of war. So are they brave? Are they cowards? Are they insane or normal? Are they ready to become insane to live in a normal world? Captivating look of bare human needs between nations when all masks are downed and human is open like a garden who's main need is to cultivate the plants of emotions.
H.R. Giger Revealed (2010)
How do you make a documentary about a person who desperately wants to be very secretive about himself? Well you bring few people, mostly artists, to speak how great artist Giger is and how he will no doubt be worshiped in a future as an overlooked genius. The lowest point of documentary was when they brought astrologist to talk how special Giger is because of planet alignment that took place on the date of his birth. While all the time Giger himself is lurking in the background as some sort of shadow so in the end you get a movie that looks like TV commercial for one of those a new age preachers.
Which is a real shame because Giger seems to be an interesting person who made an impact in popular culture especially in the movies and video games. So it would of been really interesting if they actually talked to Giger himself about his background, his life and numerous movie projects he was involved of which many failed to be made like Coppola's produced SF movie "Tourist" or the "Dune". And I don't see why they didn't do that because from his cult book "Necronomicon" he doesn't seem to be so secretive since he shares some old photos of his childhood and earlier years with captions, but only if you understand German.
I guess this movie can only be interesting to Giger himself when he feels murky he just pops it in his DVD player and watches this self-indulgent rant-a-thon.
Alvin Purple (1973)
This is the first sex comedy I ever watched in my life. Sure I watched a lot of films that considered themselves as sex comedies but there was no sex in them, just some goofy romance. Sure there were some of those teen sex movies that came close but this movie is about adults has a lot of sex and it's very funny.
I also think this is very good Don Juan movie, I mean it's heck of a lot better then that "Don Juan" movie with Johny Depp. Besides what I also enjoy about Australian movies is that they are not pretentious. They are not burdened with the notion "Will it get an award on some movie festival or not." No! This movie doesn't care about that, it doesn't try to be something more than it is. I watched a lot of those "coming of age" movies when you see some fellow's sudden sexual awakening and then director gets to much worked up over it and tries to be a philosopher about how people change when they loose their virginity. But not this movie, which thankfully delivers more than those movies can hope to.
