I probably will put Last Days in a top 3 of best movies in the last decade
asdf0501, did you like the Psycho remake? That movie really soured me on Gus in the late 90's, but he did a good job on his later work. Really didn't like the Death Trilogy as much as a lot of people, I know he's lauded for that.
I'd put Gus up there with Lars Von Tier as Directors that definitely defined the decade. I think Sion Sono is the greatest director of the 00s, but that's just me.
The Psycho remake is heavily hated and i understand why, but is another experiment. if you see well enough is almost a copy frame by frame of the original, so the question is: there is really a difference in the result with different actor?, when two different directors make the same work there is really a difference?if so, where is?.
The thing i never get was this supossed idea of the color, Gus does a collage of pop culture with them. If he was brave he should be do the movie in black and white like the original to retain the effect i was saying before.
Is difficult to make a list a directors from the last decade, is plenty of great work. For me, probably the best will be between Apichatpong, Hong Sangsoo and Costa. And i can't agree with Von Trier, Hate the guy
