The movie blog that's not even as clever as it looks
While I appreciate the aesthetic choice of the fruit, I cannot help but feel that a picture of Cheryl Tweedy or her husband, followed by a giant auricular protuberance, would have been more effective in conveying the title in question.(Melon-Cole-ear.)
Technical Note. It seams that the cantaloupe system was used to post sync the anthrasight cameras. Producers are drifting towards open cast actors to save money.
I'm tempted to see this movie because it starts with the prelude to Richard Wagner's Tristan und Isolde (also used on trailer).
I have seen the movie. The music is all from Wagner's 'Tristan und Isolde'. Everything else about the film is a complete waste of time. A boring pointless visit to the cinema.
This movie has won prizes because it is great art and a metaphor about Western economies being in denial about the financial disaster that will soon set us back to the stone age. OK, the film is very beautiful and it is all great art. Sadly it is boring from start to finish. See The Inbetweeners Movie instead.
You're all wrong. It's beautiful, and the main theme of depression and the fact that when you suffer from or have depression you feel like everything is an impending disaster, and are constantly being told by both the educated and uneducated, and ignorant fuckwits that there's nothing to worry about, get over yourself etc, i find to be beautifully ironic, too. As, coz, you know, there's a fuck off planet heading toward earth. I've seen on imdb it's been stripped apart in the goofs section for the scientific inaccuracies, but who the eff cares? It's gorgeous to look at, very sad (especially if you identify with the characters and/or their ailments) and John Hurt is the fucking tits. Especially when it comes to thieving silver.
