Eastern Promises was pretty tired I guess... but it had an attraction to me cos a lot of it was filmed where I used to live. For example someone gets killed in a barbers on Broadway Market at the start. But yeah not a great film.
Surprised that there is not more love for Scanners though, I would have put that near the top. For me it's one of the best of those... I dunno, slightly silly sci-fi things that are a bit too good (or expensive) to be B-movies but still sort of are, things like They Live and Dune etc I suppose.
Has anyone seen his first feature films Stereo and Crimes of The Future? Both worth checking I seem to remember. I think they have no dialogue just a voiceover added afterwards which is quite singular straight off. Some film critic said that they demonstrated that it was possible for a film to be both interesting and boring at the same time and I think that's a fair comment.
Well you could fall asleep through anything g stoned it's no knock on the films I'm sure they're great
I've got no idea what happened in the second half of Mandy, need to see it again I think.
