Re: General Movie Discussion Part IV: More Revenge (Director's Cut)
Just finished Mother. Joon-ho Bong finally redeems himself after lackluster efforts with Memories Of Murder and Snowpiercer, this was excellent. A unique mystery that slowly unravels towards a great ending. It's beautifully shot too, though to be fair one of the high points of Snowpiercer was that it was well shot too, especially when highlighting the claustrophobia of the carriages. This is not like that and focuses more on the sweeping landscapes of the whole town and intimate close ups. One of the best films I've watched recently.
I also watched L.I.E earlier which was great too. Dark and sombre, and genuinely uncomfortable to watch at some points, but you'd expect that from the subject matter. Will probably check out Michael Cuesta's few other films now too, surprised it took me so long to watch this considering he's directed episodes of Six Feet Under(!), Dexter and Homeland.
