We’re heading out of the dead-zone for theatres and into the spring thaw. Seems to be some good choices heading into cinemas this month.
City of Men
City of God was one of my top 3 favorite films of 2002. Five years later comes a sequel of sorts. City of Men (Cidade dos Homens) is from the same producers but Fernando Meirelles didn’t direct it. I’m definitely giving it a shot. In Portuguese (Brazillian) with English subs. In selected cities.
From watching the trailer this doesn’t quite look like how I was expecting it to. But Neil Marshall is one of my favorite genre directors. I’ve worn out my copy of Dog Soldiers and The Descent was great. Radha Mitchell kicking post-apocalyptic ass. I’m there this weekend.
I haven’t seen the original Funny Games (Germany, 1997) but this US remake is directed by Michael Haneke as well. I’ve heard that they’re both quite nasty. Not sure if this is a theatre outing for me or a wait-for-DVD situation.
And FINALLY, someone’s going to finance the Dutch zombie-nazi flick, Worse Case Scenario. Here’s one of the promos they filmed a couple of years ago to raise funding.
Super creepy. Here’s hoping that they pull it off.
