FILMS SEEN TODAY

1.YEARS WHEN I WAS A CHILD OUTSIDE (2007, John Torres, Philippines, A+++++++++++++++)

Strongly recommended for those who love Paisit Panpruegsachat, Chulyanon Siriphol, or Tulapop Saenjaroen—those filmmakers who erase distinction between documentary, fiction, and experimental films. Uncategorizable. Unpredictable. Untamable.

2.AUTUMN (2008, Ozcan Alper, Turkey, A+++++++++++++++)

Strongly recommended for those who love lonely, passive male character such as the one in EGG (2007, Semih Kaplanoglu, A++++++++++), though I think AUTUMN is bleaker than EGG. The main characters of AUTUMN may be the sea and the mountains, not human beings.

Though the hero of this film seems to release his pent-up emotions only one short time, I think this film has done a great job in making me totally sympathize with the hero. I really love this kind of character—person who has already lost the will to live, don’t know what to live for, or has empty soul.

3.INVISIBLE CHILDREN (2008, Brian Gothong Tan, Singapore, A-)

I like the soldier story in this film very much. It is a kind of guilty pleasure.

4.KANTAKA TAKWA (2007, Eros Djarot + Gotot Prakosa + Slamet Rahardjo Djarot, Indonesia, A-)

I like the music in this film.
