We live in Public is the most impressive movie/documentary I have seen recently. It is about the life of Josh Harris who happened to be one of the stars of early internet era. Such a visionary and understandably eccentric. I believe he might show up time sometime soon with a new web idea. The film has a good insight on a social experimentMr. Harris conducted: Quiet: We Live in Public: “an Orwellian, Big Brother type concept developed in the late ’90s which placed more than 100 artists in a human terrarium under New York City, with myriad webcams following and capturing every move the artists made. In Swedish tv-show “Kobra”, Harris stated that he had been widely influenced by the 1998 movie The Truman Show”
I keep up watching How I Met Your Mother, Weeds and Six Feet Under.
(This is a very late post. It’s amazing I can be so behind with such short reviews.)
Vavien is the third feature film by Taylan Brothers, and for many, their best so far. By far. It is also a rare example of popular Turkish cinema that is actually good. The story is tight (until the third act anyway), acting is superb, art direction and music are just as they should be. Much of the credit might have to go to Engin Gunaydin, who wrote the script and plays the miserable (and rather pathetic) small-town family man Celal. The first half of the film has been likened to Coen Brothers’ works (what a joy not to have to give proper reference!), but unfortunately the ending tries to get away with too much, too easily. Nonetheless, one of the most enjoyable Turkish films in years. Try to see it if it comes your way.
