Films Seen 2002

Escaflowne (Kazuki Akane, 2000). Released in the US in 2002. I first heard of this film when at Comic Con last year (August, 2002). They were showing it at night. My anime-crazy son wanted to see it. Alack, we were not able to catch it. However, he became obsessed with it, so he bought from an Internet Hong Kong DVD store the entire television series and the movie, in one non-stop action set! He made me watch it. I have to admit I had problems following it. My son said not to worry. No one really understand anime, you just get into the colors, the design, and the other cool stuff. Uh-huh. Anyways, this is about a suicidal high school girl, a wild and woolly guy with wings, and a dragon robot called Escaflowne, who everyone wants to control, but very few have the ability to do so. I guess I should have paid more attention. I think I would have preferred a movie on the Excel Saga, instead. (01/04/03)

Gosford Park (Robert Altman, 2001). This was such a fun flick. It was the first time I really had a chance to check out Clive Owen. I had previously seen him on the British show First Sight, about the police detective who was going blind, and then later as a Driver in The Hire series on Internet BMV shorts. But he finally gelled in this flick. I also get him mixed up with Jason Statham. Probably because Statham's The Transporter looks like it should be part of the The Hire series! Whoa -- what a tangent. I wished Gosford Park. was not rated "R". I could have taken my kid. Robert Altman tends to hit or miss and this was a hit. This is a study in class warfare where the participants are not aware of a war going on --well, most of the participants! Altman takes his time to unwind the yarn and then you realize that the unfolding is the yarn. The only other current filmmaker I know of who dares to take the time to develop a story and its characters like this is John Sayles. (01/04/03)
