Five Tales That Will F#%! You Up For Life
A subversive tale that interlaces five stories set in Los Angeles, where no taboo is left unexplored as each character careens toward a dark and often comic fate
A brilliant performance by Zoe Saldana, it was creepy and funny, sweet and intense, subtle and disturbing, full of innocence and pain; great work.
None of the other stories worked as well, there was decent work and some dark humor, but as a whole it kind of failed to deliver.
Just watch it for Saldana, it's worth the time.
Director Christopher B. Landon who wrote that gripping screenplay for DJ Caruso's "Disturbia" created an anthology film with intertwining tales of urban taboos which is very much under the radar of most film websites.
The film received unreserved lashings in Metacritic and Rotten Tomato but personally it is a pretty decent satirical film, better than most campy crap which i refused to watch.
You can get the synopsis from Wikipedia and I would say I like 4 out of the 5 short stories in this film which Landon presented in those pulp fiction comic style, not unlike "Sin City".
Not that there is anything wrong with the flipping comic and Comic Sans fonts, but the final product look slightly amateurish.…
Horror/comedy short collection with some ok ideas that are terribly executed. 2edgy4me.
Rosamund Pike is still hot though.
σπονδυλωτή ταινία, που καταπιάνεται με "ακραίες" κοινωνικές συμπεριφορές, ή τουλάχιστον μη αποδεκτές στην σημερινή κοινωνία... Παρακολουθείται με ενδιαφέρον. Εχει καλές ερμηνίες από ένα πολύ σωστά διαλεγμένο καστ.
I picked this up for $5 from JB Hi Fi, and you should too .. it's seriously inappropriate, and very, very funny .. throughly recommended.
