More Little Reviews -> V for Vendatta and Primer

V for Vendetta

I didn’t like The Matrix, but the second I guess intellectual property fiacso from the producers of the matrix is a pretty good movie. I don’t remember most of Alan Moore’s work having the coherency of this film, but it was edited down to two hours that sensically convey a story that’s timed about right for the big screen. In other words it’s focus on a small group of people and use of additional actors to convey the general populos works. We stayed removed from having additional stories, while V and Evey’s stories become to intertwine. V is basically a fable that affirms a commitment to people’s common sense and ability to rise over adversity. They also blow a lot of stuff up.

Primer

I finally managed to see this one, and rather liked it although to be honest I found the plot a little overwhelming and then underwhelming when it began to make sense. I like that the character feels so divorced from himself that he’s willing to run off with the knowledge that allowed his own creation. Primer is interesting becuase it’s incredibly humane, it doesn’t feel propersterous, the weight of the character’s invention and the incredibly small movements of ego that build and build to a climax that’s worth seeing is what makes it so incredibly compelling. That their own curiousity drives them to a conundrum that’s resolution is paradoxical and perhaps overly complicated is met in the hands of characters that are surprisingly believable. I’m a little dissapointed that Shane Carruth‘s name doesn’t show he’s in production of another film right now.
