    As a father, I can very much relate to Apatow thinking anyone who isn't moved to tears by his daughter's Cats performance is a sociopath.

    I find it very heartening that Rollin got a film made at the turn of the century that even got a theatrical release. Especially since I still find it somewhat hard to believe that he could even make films post-1990 with a budget. And I'm glad that he was able to do everything the way he wanted. That he was able to put almost anything in his pulp mystique treasure hunt again: Vampires in watch boxes; the beach at Dieppe…

    Have Sword, Will Travel


    1. Hardly any word is touching the main subject of BAO BIAO. If the eyes in this movie of gazes would be blackened one would maybe miss that this is a love story.
    2. The first ten minutes exhibit the oblique leaving of a magic realm. Omnipresent flowers disappear without explication. Romanticism ends, fighting and mistrust begin. The last ten minutes celebrate one heroically tragic death. The art of dying as opera without singing. In-between: waiting, trying out limits, looking, living with intricacy.
