    The Call

    ★★★

    More interesting than I thought it'd be! It almost felt like Guilty meets The Vanishing but 00s vibes. Not because they're similar films in terms of stories, just a loose feeling compared to what I expected.

    I found it entertaining and I enjoyed the ending. A nice, satisfying, dramatic touch. I quite like these emergency service worker films 😅

    More of the little boy. He was telling it like it is. Entertaining. Believable. Had sense. Ran from danger. Let Dave handle it, let him know he's gonna die, if I remember correctly, too. The true star of the film! I don't really remember anything else about it, other than the ending.

    Memories of Matsuko

    ★★★★

    This is one of my favourite films and an exception to my dislike of sad films. It's a tragic story told in the most delightful way.

    True to this director's work, it's colourful and visually interesting.. but it takes us through a story of a woman we already know has been killed having lived her final days as a recluse.

    Despite having not been through domestic violence, heartbreak and the snakery Matsuko faced, I still found her path relatable in…

    I cannot understand how a horror film from the 2000s, that feels like a horror from the 2000s, can be so... horrifying.

    First of all 😩 y'know, sexual assault and all that. I'm already disheartened and not quite sure what I've got myself into here. Thai films always got some old man - young girl / teacher - student grossness going on, huh. Is this a real issue in Thailand? I need to Google about it someday... (Where is Nanno…

    Oh dear.

    I was very interested in seeing this condition explored on a film.

    In addition, although the characters made her seem 'crazy', the viewers were not persuaded to agree with them. In fact, they seemed like the 'crazy' ones, as - despite not understanding necessarily - we were able to greatly empathise with her unhappiness, loneliness, wish for control and helplessness.

    It was nicely done, and I was very curious, but I sadly didn't come away satisfied. However, the…

    I'm sorry, what... BABY COOKING?!

    Oh my gosh.

    But I enjoyed this. That woman was on a mission! I mean, she was really focused on what she was doing, damn! Obsessed!! I was thinking, "Seriously, what's going on with her?". I felt bad but at the same time, she must have absolutely no one and nothing in her life for this to really take a hold as much.

    You see how that witch doctor of dark magic is just down…

    A love story.

    Or rather, tragic stories of lovers.

    I'm guessing this is inspired by The Innocents, a film with a similar story to Peter and Rebecca. I quite liked how they went about reimagining or creating these love stories, actually. I thought it was a good concept.

    However. Dani and Jamie, and I had to find out Jamie's name because I did not know it. I don't think I connected with that character. I was sad because I really…

    なんかつまらなかったですが、映画の上映残り少なくなって急に説明がありました。その説明はショックでした!「はあ!!まじで?!」みたいな。正義ではなかったです。ひどかったです!😭

    漫画を読んでないから、比べることができません。映画は、ストーリーのペースが遅いすぎますけど、LGBT・レズのテーマが含まれた映画です!🏳️‍🌈

    コーヒーさんがギャングと来たーー!

    しかし…どんなギャング?💀😂

    この映画は有名な役者がたくさん出ていますね!

    面白かったですね。漫画や宝塚歌劇団を思い出しました。最初はすごいです。舞台みたいなシーンで、アーティスティックなんです。でも、蜷川実花さんの映画なので、おもしろく、映像がきれい映画です。エフェクトもきれいでした。

    なんかばかばかしいですが、本当に好きでした😂楽しくて、カオスな感じでした。映画背景もきれい、カオスでした。変な登場人物がたくさんいました。

    主人公はかわいいですが、時々危ない状況が来るのを感じられない人みたいです😅「なぜそんなことをしたの?あぶないよ!!」って画面に叫びました😂

    でも、やっぱり楽な仕事なんてないですね!🤭

    最後のシーンも好きでした。

    Secret cinema: recommended by Agus.

    I actually didn't know who Talking Heads were. I knew their name/that they existed, and had surely heard their music before. However, I couldn't have named or sung you a song by them.

    Very 80s. I think if I were a fan I'd 100% walk away from the audience as extremely fulfilled. They did well as entertainers to reflect their music well, keep the energy going and the crowd happy.

    80s keyboardists are always giving…

    なんで鏡でチェックする前に、撃ったんですか?
    どうして驚いたのですか?本当にバカなんですね。あなたのせいです。

    このストーリーは興味深いです。私が二人いるなら大変だと思います。私ならどうするかなと考えました。でも、すぐに「一緒に生きる方法を見つけた方がいい」と思いました。でもどうやって共に生活していけばいいでしょうか?パスポートのこと、仕事やお金、色々大変ですね!

    あなたの分身が最高の人生を過ごせるならあなたは喜びますか?私は「いいんじゃない?」と思いますが、分身のせいで自分が貧乏で辛い人生を過ごさないといけないなら嫉妬するかもしれません。だから状況によります。けどそれぞれの人生があるなら全然大丈夫です。

    そして、この映画の細かい演出が好きです。例えば主人公はいつも水で口をゆすぎます。変だなと思ったら、オリジナル版の彼女がよくタバコを吸ってました。

    口を隠す男性は誰ですか?あの人の息子ですよね?
