    In preparation for Kaurismäki's The Other Side of Hope... a very simple film with a very basic narrative, yet a wonder exercise in tone and cinematic language.

    Not the most sustainable plot, and with a pretty out of date ethical message; but regardless, a great piece of tonal filmmaking.

    Like watching a two hour trailer for a really great film, only to find out the trailer is the film. "Whispering gently in voiceover like we have more substance than we actually do".

    Looking for a Halloween film? How about watching in detail the grotesque way we get our meat; that's pretty horrific and haunting, plus more real and raw than any actor in zombie costume. A deeply harrowing film that's hard to watch, but one that holds within it some knuckle biting truths about humanity.
