    Alternative Movie Watch - no.2

    by Shariq on 5th February, 2009 at 8:13 pm    

    The Edge of Heaven. A brilliant film. Deep, deep characters, superb acting, breathtaking scenery - this film has it all. If you want what its about I’d say about people trying to discover their identity. From a second generation Turkish university professors to a young German girl at university and an equally young girl whose involved in Kurdish separatist politics.

    In terms of structure its like Crash but a million times better, and I actually liked Crash. If it got a tenth of the recognition and box office of Crash I’d be very happy.

      “In terms of structure its like Crash but a million times better”

      Hmm…they don’t mention orgasm-inducing car crashes in the plot summary…

      Sounds interesting…oh god I did not like Crash at all, made me cringe all the way through.

      LOL @ BenSix, how are you even old enough to remember that movie?! :P

      Sounds interesting.

      “BenSix, how are you even old enough to remember that movie?!”

      Well, I was four or five at the time, so it sort of got ingrained in my psyche…

      No, I’m just very much down with Mista Ballard.

      Crash was ok, a bit overhyped in my view.

      But where can we watch this in London?

    6. shariq — on 6th February, 2009 at 10:30 am  

      I don’t think its in the cinemas anymore. You would have to rent it on dvd.

    7. Leon — on 6th February, 2009 at 10:58 am  

      Or keep any eye on the Prince Charles cinema?

    8. Sid — on 6th February, 2009 at 11:09 am  

      BenSix is 10 years old?

    9. Jai — on 6th February, 2009 at 11:40 am  

      Not that “Crash”, Sid. The other one many years ago, starring the bloke from “Boston Legal” who was also in “Stargate” (the movie, not the TV series) and the corporate spanking extravaganza “Secretary”.

      Based on a dodgy but well-known book.

      I saw the Ben 10 movie

      Can I join in?
