Nope, nothing this year. What you think?
Here's the earliest one. Have fun.
If I may so say today's an OK day
My dreams are more like Halloween
I'm looking out the window at the light that gleams
Even in night it doesn't stray from me
Even the streetlights put me at ease
And now they let me...
See the world in quite another light, all right
See the world like it's just a disguise, all right!
See the world like it's not all right, all right
All right all right all... right
I wanna wake up to a new day today
I wanna wake to sunshine and music
I have a life but I don't really use it
I have visions but I don't do shit
Like Donald Ducks registration plates
Well aint that fate?
I slay a great grape today, you just wait
I'll eat it to it's core!
I'll eat it like a whore!
Whatever's clever you're out of your power
About to be devoured
Man! Time is naught! Time is not enough! Time is naughty! Behave!!
Cut this line, Cutlass line
Cut a line of coke and I'll be fun
My rut's a big fucking sign, change your life
Yeah I'm up I'm trying!
Gotta make something for it's too late
Gotta chase my dream got a new fate
Wrote so much I'm sorry I made you wait
Grew up on the purple cassette, I got a blue tape
I got a blue landscape beside me
A cool lake
Jake Gyllenhaal plays Louis Bloom, a criminal nobody who doesn't seem to have much trouble doing what he does, and yet he wants more: he's looking for a legit job! Fate leads him to the side of the highway late one night as police are tending to victims of a crash, and a cameraman runs onto the scene. For his next steal - a bike, he gets himself enough shop credit to buy a cheap camcorder and police scanner, and starts crawling the cityscape by night looking for murder.
It seems like an innocent enough beginning, but it spirals out of control quickly as the news footage becomes all the more bloody and violent, and the thin line between taping and making news starts to blur. How far is he really willing to go for good footage?
Though the main character dampens the violent tones a bit with his always so contemplative calm, that's also what make him so scary. It's an intruding; at times intense voyage that we follow Louis Bloom on, learning more and more about him as we go and as he changes. Or maybe he's the same person at the end that he was at the start of the movie? The introduction seems to offer a hint.
The action's rare, but when it's there it definitely captures your attention. Overall this was a different; refreshingly dark watch.
rated 4/5: fo shizzle
