    24Framespersecond.net - Sion Sono’s THE LAND OF HOPE: DVD review

    A generation which ignores history has no past and no future. The Land of Hope is a beautiful picture at times, leisurely paced but memorable all the same. Tragic and haunting, sweet and uplifting; Sion Sono has more or less achieved what he set out to do. Can't wait to see where he goes from here, and we'll be following him, one step at a time.

    Not much to the trailer there, but... high hopes for this, as always.

    Good to know, at least, that Wong Kar Wai was involved in supervising the re-cut. I think I will enjoy watching and comparing both versions.

    Zhang Ziyi & Michelle Yeoh To Return For 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' Sequel, Donnie Yen Joins & Yuen Wo Ping To Direct | The Playlist

    EW reports that Zhang Ziyi — who will kick ass in "The Grandmaster," opening this weekend — is in talks to return as Jen Yu in flashback sequences in the movie now called "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon — The Green Destiny." The film has a script from John Fusco ("The Forbidden Kingdom," "Hidalgo") and is based on the book "Silver Vase, Iron Knight," the fifth book in "Iron Pentalogy" ('Crouching Tiger' was the fourth), with story centering on Yu Shu Lien. Michelle Yeoh will also return take on that latter role, with Donnie Yen also on board the sequel as Silent Wolf.

    Venice Review: Sono Sion's Bonkers Midnight Movie 'Why Don't You Play In Hell?' | The Playlist

    Those adverse to Sono's previous work should be warned that he hasn't exactly abandoned his trademarks. For instance, it's incredibly noisy, with most of the characters screaming their dialogue, with the rest of the mix being basically bowel-shaking in order to keep up. In general, the words "Do you think we should tone it down a bit?" appear to have never passed the filmmaker's lips, whether to actors, heads of departments or while writing the screenplay. But anyone with a passing familiarity with Sono's oeuvre knows what they're getting themselves into, and for those coming in fresh — particularly action fans and cinephiles — they couldn't ask for a better entry point.

    Venice Review: Kim-Ki Duk's Taboo-Shattering Black Comedy 'Moebius' | The Playlist

    What is truly impressive, and somewhat overlooked in the hype over the film's more trangressive moments, is the way that the story is told entirely with dialogue. It's not exactly a silent film -- there's plenty of moaning and screaming -- but not a word of dialogue is exchanged, and it's impressive how fully-formed Kim's storytelling proves to be: all kinds of nuances and themes come across without having to be explained.

    It's still a difficult film to love, or even like, for some of the reasons above. But it's superior in every way to the dull "Pieta," and hopefully Kim's got his desire to shock out of the system with this one -- if so, he might end up cooking up something genuinely worthy of the Golden Lion down the line.
