    Zeros and Ones

    ★★★★½

    Ferrara creates a horrific world. You can't get close to anyone. Everyone has their own agendas. Faith is dying or being destroyed. No one can be trusted. There's violence and people willing to commit violence seemingly everywhere. Sex and love are either treated very carefully or emotionless. Everything is so confusing. The world is dark and empty. And you're alone.

    Much like Siberia seemed like it wasn't so much a linear story, but a meditation on remembering, Zeros and Ones…

    HOLY FUCK! This was amazing!!!!

    If this was a the exact same script where Hwang Jun-min was playing a famous actor named Joe Blow it would still be a great thriller. But the fact that Hwang Jun-min is playing himself makes this something that I've never seen before. And it's played totally fucking straight faced! There is no winking at the camera.

    Hooper at his best.

    An incredible mixture of old fashioned, gothic horror with Eighties spectacle sci-fi. This is unlike any other film ever made.

    The story is inventive, the cast is amazing (I especially love Firth's "Fazed by nothing" SAS agent) and the direction is above and beyond. Hell, Hooper made two of the best vampire movies of all time, but one is a TV movie and the other is a sci-fi. He never takes the easy way.

    I'm so…

    Insanely entertaining and smart to boot, this is a perfect case scenario for when I don't feel a film is too long despite it's massive run time. Hell, when there are so many ideas and the pace moves at a good rate, I would've been happy to watch the longer cut.

    Metallica: Some Kind of Monster

    ★★★★

    The world is run by Lars Ulrichs and James Hetfields and we are all Kirk Hammetts saying, "C'mon guys, can't we all just get along?"

    Kirk Hammett is an unsung people's hero.
