Run Lola Run
Every second of every day you're faced with a decision that can change your life.
Lola receives a phone call from her boyfriend Manny. He lost 100,000 DM in a subway train that belongs to a very bad guy. She has 20 minutes to raise this amount and meet Manny. Otherwise, he will rob a store to get the money. Three different alternatives may happen depending on some minor event along Lola's run.
Decades Project: 2/9 of the 90's
"The ball is round, a game lasts 90 minutes, everything else is pure theory. Off we go!"
Manni, a small-time criminal, finally gets the big-time job that means he's beginning to gain his boss's trust. This is the test to see if he's worthy. And he screwed it up. He lost the money. So now it's up to his loyal girlfriend Lola to get him out of the mess he's created. And she just might be badass enough to pull it off. But when her first attempt fails and she finds herself shot and bleeding to death, she pulls herself back through time to try again. And this time she won't give up so…
How this film plays itself is the same way how you play a video game. You have to reach a goal point in a limited time. You start the game, overcome each n every obstacle, almost make it to the final mark but either the time is over or you're dead. So what do you do when it's already game-over? You restart. And continue doing that until you finally make it through. And that's exactly how the events depicted in Run Lola Run unfold.
Presenting 3 different alternatives of a single event, Run Lola Run begins with Lola receiving a phone call from her boyfriend Manny who lost 100,000 Deutschmark which belongs to a mobster he was working for. Lola…
Video game existentialism set to a pumping house soundtrack, would be one way to describe this non-stop adrenalin rush. Music videos in the 90's became increasingly influential in the style used by directors aiming at a younger audience. Run Lola Run is one of the few films that packaged together visual inventiveness with some food for thought.
Everyone has their own take on fate and pre-determined outcomes and Lola definitely has hers. Her self-belief stands out as fiercely as the red flame hair that holds our attention on the screen, a female Sonic the Hedgehog burning through the streets of Berlin controlling multiple lives.
The interesting thing is that we leave the film knowing very little about her life outside…
Chaos Theory stipulates that all dynamic systems are deterministic, which means that a system can be significantly affected by small changes in its component variables. However, these deterministic systems are, as the name implies, already determined by the nature of their initial conditions. That is, a system has an infinite number of theoretical possible conclusions, but the same origin. These drastic repercussions caused by small variables in a dynamic system is also known as Butterfly Effect.
The Butterfly Effect is reminiscent of Chaos Theory. The assumption is given with a theoretical example where the physical patterns involved in a butterfly flapping its wings can subsequently cause a hurricane in another geographical location several weeks later. How? The "initial conditions" are…
Run Lola Run is just like playing a videogame. It was only a matter of time until someone decided to make a film like this, a videogame-esque film where the protagonist of the picture is the main character of an eletronic game and, as in a videogame, she'll often face defeat and her game will be over, but she'll always have the chance to try again, and Lola just takes advantage of that chance, even if she only has twenty minutes to complete her task.
The reason why this film plays out so well is because, even though it's obviously repetitive, the idea of turning it off never comes to your mind, it's really like if you're playing a videogame…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Run Lola Run directed by Tom Tykwer is a stunning film that manipulates common ideas of time and fate. The premise of the film is actually quite simple: Lola is somewhat responsible for getting her boyfriend into trouble with his mob boss, so she has to get him 100,000 marks in 20 minutes to avoid his death. There are three different realities that surround this same story throughout the film, each one beginning in relatively the same way. What makes this film so incredible is how Tykwer tweaks very small things in each of the three realities, which leads to radically different outcomes in each case. It may be difficult to pin down a single theme, but if there were…
atypical german movie
"Sliding doors" meets "In time". Add cartoons and a beat.
To be honest, I fast-forwarded most of it.... so might have missed the intensity...
I first saw this years ago, probably taping it and watching it when it aired on Film4. I promptly went out and bought it on DVD, knowing that I'd want to rewatch it.
The DVD was still in the shrinkwrap until we rewatched it last week, still proudly bearing the price sticker from Fopp in Canterbury (a store that closed down in 2007). It was worth a rewatch and I'm pleased that it lived up to the long memories. It's a very 90s film but that helps rather than hinders the film - you're immediately grounded in a certain timeframe and you don't remotely start wondering why there aren't mobile phones, for instance.
When I watched this at the age of 10, I was definitely too young to appreciate it at all.
I don't know what's special about this movie, but I don't know how it could be any better. It's just so cool.
230/366 for 2016

Weirder than I expected! Pretty fun! Weirdly sweet. Also, just weird. Dug the cinematics, cringed at the music, but loved the overall confidence. Like, this film's sense of reality is thrown out the goddamn window a 1/3rd of the way through, but that's kind of okay! It's a thematically pulsating film that hooked me from the start. Such energy. The guys who made CRANK should take note... or remake this, or something, I don't know. I want CRANK 3D.
I think I get Tom Tykwer now... granted, the only thing I'd seen him make was CLOUD ATLAS (which I loved).
Tykwer injects his masterpiece with rhythm and kinetic energy seen in few other action films - his techno score helps marvelously in this regard. While Potente and Breitbau are great as the leads, it's the supporting cast (the bum, the bank chairman, the teller) who inject the script's time-looping intellectual conceits with blood and vigor. While Run Lola Run doesn't deliver satisfying theses on all the questions raised in its expertly-paced runtime, it's still one hell of actioner.
