Just watched it on Netflix. Fantastic. Another film about how the system fails the kids. That little girl was amazing! A child’s despair is so great, unimaginable! When she screamed mama, I could only say it too, it is primal!Just been at the movies and seen an overwhelmingly moving, brutal German movie named "Systemsprenger", meaning "System-Breaker" about a 9-yo girl who can't control her sudden impacts of aggressiveness and violence, which leads her from one social-institution to the next.
Lisbon, 1989. A middle-aged poor idiot, tormented by an illness, lives in a cheap room in a family boarding house, in the old section of the city's waterfront.
João de Deus, a middle-aged man, lives in a cheap boarding house in an old part of Lisbon. He relies on Franz Schubert's music and films to stave off misery. After harassing his landlord's daughters, he is thrown out of his room. He is sent to a mental hospital; however, he eventually manages to escape through the sewers.
I used to be one of those people that think "Wow this is weird and I can't understand it, therefore it must be DEEP (and I'm probably dumb)!" Then I read Bukowski. I still enjoy some of Lynch's movies (Eraserhead is an all-time favorite) and surrealist art in general, but it's sometimes hard to take seriously. It's a mighty fine line between twisted fun/horror and pretentious gibberish with surrealist works. I think MJP did an episode on his podcast about this specifically (including Lynch).What I dislike about parts of the 3rd season (and Lynch in general) is this "oh, look how crazy and artsy my creative act is!"-attitude.
It was called, "Twin Peaks and David Lynch, Non-album B-sides, Orange Is the New Black and Kathy Griffin."I think MJP did an episode on his podcast about this specifically (including Lynch).
I have a sister that paints nails for a living, and she charges extra for 'nail art' - drawing a camel, or a santa on christmas. I've never saw a Lynch movie, and it's strange because his one of the great American directors and I've seen many of them, but never him. What I did see, was a movie about his "art" and his "meditation" and both of them were equally bullshit, the meditation one was hyper bullshit, TM is the greatest scam, well, meditation is a scam, but TM is the holy scam, this one actually takes you money to learn two words. His artistic movie, I had to jump parts, because he was just telling stories of childhood, like, an excuse to make a dramatic painting. The only good thing I've seen so far, was the hair, great hair.What I dislike about parts of the 3rd season (and Lynch in general) is this "oh, look how crazy and artsy my creative act is!"-attitude.
my log does not judge
I dug em both. Rockers better. I've seen lots of movies lately. Last night I saw Steve McQueen's Shame. the trailer doesn't do it justice so I don't know why i'm posting it. That being said, it is a great movie that, so far, has really stuck with me.Whether The Harder they Come is worth watching depends on whether you find that mid-70s period of Jamaican music interesting. There's a story there, but it's not much to hang on. Jimmy Cliff does a good job though. But it certainly captures what life in Jamaica looked like in those days.
It's not as good as Rockers, but realistically, neither one of them is going to be of much interest to a general move watcher who isn't into reggae.
I forgot to mention, for anyone who likes The Harder They Come and/or Rockers, The Criterion Channel has a movie from the same era, but filmed in England, called Babylon. Just like the movies shot in Jamaica, a musician plays the main role in Babylon, Brinsley Forde from Aswad.that was surprisingly good!
