So, this movie is finally getting released in the US. This is the one, if you'll remember, that first came out around the world last summer, everywhere except the US, because some people protested that it was negative towards America. This really bugged me, and I'm glad to see it's finally getting released. It's 11 short films that are 11 minutes long apiece and each was made by a director from a different nation From what I hear, the only "un-American" part of it is a film that draws some parallels between 9/11, and September 11, 1973, when the American military overthrew the Chilean democratic government and replaced it with right-wing dictator Pinochet, who ruled with torture and terror. Basically the point of that movie, apparently, is "do unto others...", and I can't say I'm really offended by the idea. Anyway, most people are saying the best film of them all is one I've actually seen, it's by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu from Mexico. The screen is pretty much blank for the majority of the 11 minutes, flashing occasionally on a short shot of a body falling through the sky. For the most part, we are forced to use our imagination as far as the visuals go, and any five-year-old will tell you, the scariest things are the ones you don't see. The director somehow got really disturbing and depressing sound clips. Aside from the planes flying into the buildings and various news clips, we hear panicked calls to loved ones from inside the planes ("we have a little problem on the plane... I just wanted to say I love you." That gave me chills just thinking about that part) and inside the buildings. We continually hear muffled thuds, and we begin to realize this is the sounds of bodies hitting the ground. At the end, we hear the buildings collapsing FROM THE INSIDE. You hear each floor give out, really creepy when you think this was the last thing anyone in the building heard. This thing was really disturbing, to the point that I don't know if I'd want to watch it again, to be honest. But, yeah, this looks pretty good. Probably won't play anywhere near me, though.
