Laddaland (REVIEW)

Laddaland

The cover of “Laddaland” has the cliched picture of a long dark-haired ghost-girl, and even though this is a trope that has worn pretty thin for most people, I’ll admit it’s something I still really enjoy. For instance, last year saw the release of the umpteenth sequel to the Japanese version of the Grudge, “Juon White Ghost/ Black Ghost” and as many of those films as I’ve seen, the movie was still creepy, and I still really enjoyed it.

Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (REVIEW)

Today it seems that notions of distinct national cinemas are becoming increasingly difficult to argue for. I do not mean to say that particular narratives and cultural contexts are disappearing nor are they ceasing to inform particular film cultures. Rather, I am thinking more along the lines of how certain cinematic techniques for conveying information to us are becoming less divergent across filmmaking communities. Over generalizing blanket statements? Absolutely.
