Two Movies / No Movies

No new movies today. I re-watched portions of Rian Johnson's Brick—it's on DVD now, so if you missed it, you should go rent it immediately—and Kim Ki-duk's Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter ...and Spring. I love Brick and I enjoyed the pieces I watched all over again. It's funny and clever and dark and a damn good mystery. As for the South Korean film, I know I've gone off before on how good it is and it this was drilled into me again as I sat and watched the whole thing again. I just can't turn away. It's amazing how a film this silent can say so much and be so beautiful. I laughed, I cried. Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter ...and Spring was my favorite movie of 2004, so if you missed it, you're not paying attention. Go rent it.
