“a relatively small area of the human brain is active in love, compared with that involved in, say, ordinary friendship. […] The second surprise was that the brain areas active in love are different from the areas activated in other emotional states, such as fear and anger. […] So the brains of people deeply in love do not look like those of people experiencing strong emotions, but instead like those of people snorting coke.” >>>
fesselnde doku über den deutschen drehbuchautoren, regisseur und filmproduzenten Oliver Storz.
die FAZ schreibt ehrfürchtig: „Lawinen der Erinnerung“ ist ein Bild- wie Klangkunstwerk, ein Lehrstück des respektvollen Porträts und ein Musterbeispiel dafür, was eine Fernsehproduktion erreichen kann. Was vom Fernsehen bleibt, werden Filme wie dieser sein. Filme, die auch problemlos auf der Kinoleinwand zu fesseln verstehen, wie man auf der Berlinale sehen wird.” >>>
saw a concert of Woodkid this saturday during a job in Bratislava. never heard of him before, but i was stunned by the epic energy transmitted through his emotional voice in combination with battle drums, breathtaking sub-bass and dramatic horns… looking forward to the next concert and also the upcoming EP and album.
i watched the sequel of Crank last night, without any expectations in quality and plot – but i was stunned! the video camera work is faster and shakier with fast cuts and beautiful fish-eye sequences – like a music video of aphex twin or squarepusher. the music is hysteric and ingenius with cranky sound effects and a more than fitting musical selection. all in all it’s a fine piece of 90min video-art with adrenaline and testosterone overdose…
the flick is peppered with graphical elements and typographic delicacies, live-visuals style kaleidoscope effects and colors and contrast always crisp to the max. there are psychedelic sequences, illustrated sequences, super8-aestetics, a really absurd long shot tribute to godzilla movies.
the characters are exaggerated comic heroes reminding me a lot of robert rodriguez archetypical figures. couldn’t be better! the appearance of david carradine as a life-craving horny old chinese triad gangster drooling over busty young whores is hilarious considering his current absurd death.
if you have strong nerves, are used to bloody gore mayhem, explicit language with funny brit accent and a b-movie fan, video or VJ art geek, you will definetly enjoy this flick as much as i did.
