Went to see three yesterday films. Here are their stories...
The Sentimental Engine Slayer - interestingly styled film about something. Not really sure what that something is. Halfway through I wasn't convinced I would care and decided being outside earlier was more imperative than finding out. It seemed like something I might like to see the rest of as it's possible that things got tied back together. May just have been a lack of a mystery mood thing.
The Protektor - Czech film set during the years of Nazi occupation. Some things not new - ie. having a Jewish wife caused career trouble for people during this period. Being the wife considerably worse. Even if you were previously a beautiful Czech film star. But the visual style of the film put it into the positive category even if I didn't find it groundbreaking in terms of subject matter.
Diamond 13 (France) - The big man himself Gérard Depardieu attempts to drink himself to death onscreen as an embittered cop who's involved with way too many people killing each other. I was quite tired and snoozed a bit so can't be 100% sure what I thought. But the beginning when I was clearly awake didn't endear me especially to the film. When he ended up with the super young/hot ex-wife might have been when I threw up my hands and let the sandman take me. Didn't seem bad, just not great and occasionally a bit silly. Like a French Diehard 8.
