    It did not push the usual buttons pushed by popular culture.

    Locke is a cinematic work of art, and requires a cultivated taste to be enjoyed.

    Yes, Locke is for those with good taste.
    Man, you certainly assume too much. I can go on and on with you about European and Asian experimental and arthouse films. But sure, anybody who doesn't appreciate Locke must belong to the pop culture trash bag. What a laugh.

    No need to get hysterical. It is simply a matter of taste.

    I tasted a gem of a movie. Simple, beautifully executed, emotionally satisfying - except I am still wondering whether the cemet pour was a success.

    What do you think? The cement pour was the largest outside a nuclear reactor or a military installation. But what do you think, do you think the pour was a success?

    There was nothing original or special about Locke. I think I recall it having a cool song in it though... It wanted to be stylish and cool, but there just was nothing compelling about it in my opinion.

    Yes, it was a simple movie beautifully executed.

    I would describe it as a pallate cleansing movie.

    Default God Is Not Dead

    I saw the movie God Is Not Dead the other night, and it has high production values, in other words, a lot of money has been spent on this film and its distribution.

    It is though a propaganda film of American Protestant Evangelicals.

    The propaganda I have heard many times before, and is classic American Protestant Evangelical propaganda.

    Of some interest is how they demonise an atheist philosophy professor, make a public fool of him, and have him make a death bed conversion to American Protestant Evangelicalism.

    I guess I am surprised that American Protestant Evangelicals are so wealthy and powerful they can project their classic propaganda across the world into commercial movie theatres.

    This explains to me why Americans take Protestantism for granted, and so naturally think we should too.

    I finally saw Pulp Fiction way better than expected considering I couldn't stand Django or the Kill Bill series. Not usually a fan of taratino films, feels like they try to hard.

    Watch Jackie Brown, you'll actually like it, he didn't write it himself. I do like Tarantino, but he is very self-indulgent, and you know how it is with successful directors, they're pretty much just entertaining themselves after the bucks start rolling in.
