Is this 1-10 scale, really a 5-10 system? There are an awful lot of 8/9s.
Anyway, using a proper curve, the films I saw last week -
8 - Peter Brook's 1963 Lord of the Flies
7 - Martin Scorsese's 2005 No Direction Home
6 - David Fincher's 2007 Zodiac
5 - Joon-ho Bong's 2005 Gwoemul/The HostGwoemu
l was chosen as a Halloween film, fun in its Korean-ness, and pretty far from great in most considerations. I'm not sure why anyone makes film recreations like Zodiac
, but it captured a time and place I happen to be interested in and was well executed. No Direction Home
was rewatched in preparation of I'm Not There
, and is I think underrated. It certainly changed the way I thought of Dylan. Brook's Lord of the Flies
captures the story so very well and it being 'dated' actually helps its English class subtext. Pretty amazing and great to watch around Halloween.
The two I can recommend...
