    Omg Peter Sellers totally sold that film lol (Pun intended). Love how you could hear him making the crew laugh. A great dark comedy.

    A great comedian and actor.

    While on this homage to Peter Sellers moment, may I also draw everyone's attention to the following films:

    • 1959 I'm Alright Jack
    • 1962 Kubrick's Lolita, where he plays an unnerving Clare Quilty
    • 1963-78 and the original Pink Panther films, with Sellers as Clouseau and my ever beloved Pink Panther theme from Henry Mancini
    • 1967 Casino Royale where he has a small role as Evelyn Tremble pretending to be Bond.



    And of course, my absolutely beloved Goon Show that no matter how inappropriate it is I will always adore. Talk about setting up my sense of humour for adulthood.

    He died far too young and spent too much time hating his own work.

    The last film I watched was a few days ago when I watched 'The Girl with the Dragon tattoo' (Män som hatar kvinnor) - I.E. The Swedish version.



    I'd never seen this film. Nor the American one bar it being on in rooms I was in but not really paying attention. I thought it was a decent film, I liked that it wasn't Hollywood, it's setting, and it provided plenty of mystery solving and action/revenge scenes. It then took me a day or 2 to realise that the reason I liked the film was because of the character Noomi. Because A. She was a babe, and B. She was by far the most interesting character in the film. I imagined the film if it had had another (anti) heroine, a plain girl, and the film becomes very ordinary, nothing special etc.

    Suburbicon

    This review may contain spoilers.

    The dark comedic undertones of the film definitely scream Coen Brothers at you, which the film had a sort of comedic undertone throughout the whole thing; crushing pills with a roller, the bike ride, eating the drugged meal without a clue, etc. They worked well.

    What didn't work well was the tie in with the black family. It almost had no relation to the plot. If there was a intention of making a statement on racial discrimination in White Picket Fence Suburban American, they missed the target.

    Oscar Issac carried this film on his shoulders. As soon as he came in, Boom. The movie just started. His wit and cleverness, while playing on the characters was smart, and definitely a Coen brothers character. His character gave the film the boost it needed.

    Also, Matt Damon plays the role he does best: Being a Scumbag.
