|08.29.11||Borrowed|| Hey, Victor! I watched your movie! Thanks for letting me borrow it (for a year)!|
This is a multi-decade story of how an obscure Japanese punk song saves the world. I think that Golden Slumber is a more polished film that comes together a bit more powerfully at the end, this movie is still fantastic in that exuberant feeling of all the pieces falling in place just when they should. I was a bit lost in some of the transitions and why exactly I'm following certain people - a few moments felt exceedingly random - but of course it all paid off when I stuck with the film and let it explain itself. It's a really fun human story that in a lot of ways feels like a bluepring for Golden Slumber to me. I wondeer if I'd feel the exact opposite if I'd seen this before the other film, who knows. I also wonder if Nakamura's other films are as good as the two that I've seen. Thanks, Victor!
