It does come off as artsy, but I think the idea was to make it international without punning down a specific culture. It's a pretty decent movie. At times it feels like a Bergman movie, but it's not quite at that level.

I caught the Evil Dead franchise episode a few days ago but haven't sat through the others since then. I typically enjoy their stuff so I should try to keep up with it this month.

So I'm watching the Event Horizon extras and they mention how Sam Neill was totally naked wearing full-body scarred-flesh prosthetics on the stage and they're shooting in the dead of winter, the stage has no heating, and Neill is freezing his balls off.

What a trooper.

But the extras are fascinating. The ship's design is actually partially lifted from Notre Dame itself, and they wanted the design to have religious aesthetics built into the ship all over the place. Jason Isaacs wanted to keep the full-size model of himself that was made for the scene where his chest is cut open. They came up with the magnetic boots because the whole thing on wires would have gone over-schedule/-budget. Miniature scale-model of the ship was 30 feet and needed machinery to move. Sean Pertwee turned his hair platinum blonde and when Paul Anderson saw it, he was speechless, so Pertwee shaved his head the next day. Anderson is on the cover of a book floating in the entryway of the ship, his Hitchcock cameo. The screenwriter for Se7en did a sequence where Fishburne finds a tooth floating in the air, but since it was long and didn't progress the plot it was removed.

The commentary I'll have to watch another time, maybe after rewatching the film sometime this week. It's only 90m so I can probably squeeze it in twice this week, hopefully.

Talking

Update: I watched the first 2 From Dusk till Dawn movies, which were both good, but I could see Tarentino's influence all over the first one, from the camera angles, to the weird subtext going on throughout the film. Most disturbing was his actual character and what he did to the first hostage. Such gruesome. I was kind of happy as to his character's outcome.



The 2nd one was more a run of the mill movie, but I did like that they centered most of it on the bank heist instead of the bar.

^Cool. #1 is a great vamp flick. The other two I could watch again (esp. #3).
