I'm seeing sunspots!

So, I'll update this tomorrow with more detailed thoughts but, ahem, my first reaction to Danny Boyle's Sunshine:

Sweet merciful baby Jesus! What the fuck was that?


In other words: Sunshine is screwed in the head and probably likes lapdances from one-legged dwarfs. Or something. I'm not making much sense, but that's alright because neither does the movie.

I think there was a scene where a man's flesh got torn off and then they fell down a wall and then they stood upright and then someone jumped into the sun but then they didn't but instead opened a door and the boogie man jumped out and then the sun did something as the countdown continued to tick over and then someone fell into the sun again and there was a wall of fire inside a box and then Cillian Murphy stood inside the box and then something happened to the box or maybe nothing happened to the box. And the Sydney Opera House looked cool.

That illuminated nothing. I'm still seeing whenever the hell it comes here. Michelle Yeoh is enough reason for me.

I'd definitely recomend it but the final act doesn't make a lick of sense.

Like 2001 senseless, or Demi Moore in The Scarlet Letter senseless?

And where the hell did I pull a Demi Moore in The Scarlet Letter reference from anyway?

Kamikaze Camel said...

lol. Well, I haven't seen The Scarlett Letter (oh god, SHOULD I?) but 2001 is sort of like it... but way more heavily edited and jumpy and violent and... really, they're not similar at all.

No, no you should most definitely not see Demi's Scarlet Letter.

Although, from what I remember, it actually might make a really swell entry in your Cinema of the Absurd series. We watched it in my high school Engligh class (!!!!!!) when we read the book, and that right there about tells you the quality of my early education.
