I didn't have the energy to watch The Last Wave last night, so instead put on The Cars That Ate Paris, which left me baffled. It's a strange mix between a kind of kitchen-sink drama and Ozspoiltation. There are some interesting ideas bubbling beneath the surface of this film, but I'm not sure any of it comes together in a satisfying manner. Aside from the one (accidentally?) striking image of the police officer brandishing the door of his car with the word "pig" spray painted across it and wielding a bloody makeshift spear, I didn't find the film particularly invigorating. Anyone feel passionately about this film, either good or bad? I'm curious to hear what people's thoughts are. (Apologies if this thread already exists somewhere. I searched, but couldn't find one.)
No details until release date, as sworn... ...except to say that the film did not disappoint me. In fact, it's the finest high seas film I've seen. Any O'Brian fans here? I've never read any of his novels, but this movie sure makes me want to read more about Aubrey and his men. Man... Weir is a fine filmmaker. Favorites?
