Movies seen recently: Kagemusha, Deep Red


The story of a clan, a dying emperor, and his double. Good music, but it tends to get a bit repetitive, though not as repetitive as the music in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Black. Now that was really irritating.

Deep Red

A 1975 Dario Argento horror/thriller film. Like Slumdog Millionaire and Apocalypto, full of plot holes and bad lines, but designed around a director's amazing vision, meaning you can't help but overlook its faults and appreciate what's been created. Good build up of suspence and mystery. The story takes you along with it, making you ignore its faults. Like Kagemusha, has very good music.
