10/10: An art film by its...
Thursday, December 6, 2007

An art film by its own rights Je prie de différer mon ami...Mrs. Cegavske clearly states in her commentary that she does not choose to *tell us* what her symbolism means! Thus leaving us to discover our own meaning... such is art. And this is at its core an art film via the medium of Stop Motion Animation. She clearly had a demonstrable mastery over the personalities of her creatures, living and breathing life into them over the decade of animating their world. Some may lack even a soft focus to take it in whole-cloth... such is the curse of the soft machine in its unrefined state. As far as comparing her work via other artistic films, this is a magnum opus that few modern Americans seem capable of anymore. I think M. Barney's Cremaster Cycle is of a similar scope although altogether a different beast. I think the CGI herd of consumer product tie-in driven...

A different kind of fairy tale This was a fascinating animation.Even when this movie can't be compared with the masterpieces done by Jiří Trnka, Jan Svankmajer and the Brothers Quay, there are still many beautiful qualities about "Blood Tea and Red String", a film able to combine the most whimsical elements from fairy tales and fables with lots of surreal scenes. It might be a weird film, but this is an example of a good kind of weirdness.I liked a lot the animation style from this film, which despite being done in the year 2006, has a strong resemblance with many stop-motion shorts done in the seventies and the eighties, something that works very well for the story of "Blood Tea and Red Sting". The plot was very strange, but very interesting to watch at the same time, having a marvelous dream-like quality which evokes the whimsical nature of some fairy tales.In "Blood Tea...

Weirdness for Weirdness Sake? Disappointing... Allow me to begin by saying that I WANTED to like this movie. While it may have certain "qualities" inherent in the culmination of a 13 (or so) year long HOBBY by a woman who has admitted she has no idea what the symbolism of the movie is, why the characters do the things they do or behave in the ways that they behave, neither what their roles actually are, as in the case of the frog with the apparently endless supply of actual (although very pale) hearts and the trippy tea and hallucinogenic red berries... IS he the gardener who cares for the carnivorous plants in the oasis inside the maze? If so, why lure in the "Oak Dwellers" in the first place only to "rescue" them later? In an eggshell, I (personally) was very disappointed in Blood Tea & Red String.

Saturday, June 3, 2017

An acquired taste "Blood Tea and Red String" is the latest watch in my line of obscure animated films I wanted to see. I gotta say for all the talk of this thing being a horror movie, it really only delivers on that in the imagery. The story, while darker than most childhood fairy tales, doesn't revolve around the macabre. It is a Gothic, haunting movie but not really what I'd call horror.As for the film itself, I liked it. Would watch again if I had the chance, though it's not necessarily a re-watchable kind of flick. It is an art-house film - through and through. While this is the kind of art-house stuff I can get behind (or at least, you know, is actually entertaining and thought provoking instead of pretentious or dull), art movies are something you have to be in the mood for.

8/10: Tow family, one girl, one...
Monday, December 4, 2006

Tow family, one girl, one children This is a good example of the real artistic sense, I mean the hole movie is so fascinating, everything seem to fit perfectly. First It's an animation, so if you like movie like Gigli stay AWAY!Very surrealist, the relation of the girl with the family bird and the family mouse is very strange. The movie is very slow and the character evolve in an complex and beautiful background. the story is a dark and the there not a lot of explication about what really happen with the two family. The style is also very great I mean, there a lots of work behind that, and we feel during the movie that every details is the more realistic as possible. If you have the chance to see this movie don't miss it this is a great piece of art.
