VENICE -Our man on the Lido has been roaming the 71st Venice Film festival which means that almost by accident he has seen some films. Here is that.
So here are my reviews from the Venice Film Festival so far.
The Look of Silence
Do not go on holiday to Indonesia until they fess up to the shit they been doing.
Al Pacino plays Philip Roth playing Al Pacino.
Far from Man
Aragorn is French and living in Algeria during the 1954 war of liberation. Very beautiful landscapes and a pretty good Western when it comes down to it.
Al Pacino plays Manglehorn, a lock smith who needs to find the key to his heart. Yep. Get through the style and quality acting and it is kind of that trite.
Fires on the Plain
Japanese retreat in the Philippines turns into madness and cannibalism. Brutal, bloody and brilliant.
Should have been.
Spider-man tries to make a bomb on the housing market.
A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence
Swedish remake of The Kentucky Fried Movie
