Child Of God (2013) Film Review.RabitBandini Productions,Made in-land.
Directed by James Franco. Distributed by Spotlight Pictures. Rated R,
certificate 18 UK, running time 104 minutes.
I have just finished watching this movie,with mainly positive reviews on Amazon,then dreadful reviews on certain online film sites. I just wondering we're they watching a different film to the one I've just watched as this is a powerhouse of a movie. It is probably a very nasty biased opinion as the film is directed by James Franco,who in the movie business,nobody seems to like. This film is bleak,it is depressing,and degrading in places. But it shows the mental decline of an individual,forced out of normal society,by his pears,then they wonder why he turns feral later.
Lester Ballard is an unhinged young man,but when thrown out of his family home,after his Dads suicide,he has nowhere to go,he finds an old shack in the woods,he makes his home,by scavenging off the land. But the more isolated he becomes,the more removed from humanity he becomes. A chance encounter,with a young couple,found dead in a car,to a joint suicide pact,he degrades the female,by having sex with the corpse,which he takes her body back to his cabin,and then pretends to be husband and wife. Which to some is why this movie had been so negatively received. The subject matter of Necrophilia is a terrible one, but with a childlike feral man,you almost feel sorry for him,as he really does not have the mental capacity to understand what he is doing is wrong. I think that is why the film upset so many people,but it never set out to be controversial,and the scenes are not used as a glorifying set piece,like some strange little Horror film. The man is mentally incapable of understanding right from wrong. The whole movie is trying to make that point. An outstanding one man performance from Scott Haze,as the whole 90 minute running time is on him,he is an outstanding actor, I think mainly a stage actor,but he is outstanding in this.but got criminally overlooked by the Oscar board,because of its subject matter no doubt. Can I recommend this film as a great film to watch,well no because it is a truly disturbing piece of cinema. But to watch for the performance of Scott Haze, yes you should,and James Franco, you have turned an unworkable depressing book into a a bleak and disturbing film also. You are certainly a talent to watch out for in the future.
I came across this trailer on YouTube yesterday, and it is doing the rounds again on social media, a trailer first showing in 2015, that got everyone talking " is this for real" " this can not be a film can it?" As it turns out no, it is a trailer that is well made, but certainly is not going to be a film anytime soon.
A one joke trailer about a randy ghost intent on jerking men off, using handjobs, I'm surprised the tag line wasn't "Cumming soon".
This was obviously made by men with a running narrative that women cannot give a decent handjob, and having them do the deed is worse than death, instead you have a ghost who wants to jerk all men to death.
It is as awful as you'd expect it to be, but I still found myself chuckle a few times, it is rude, crude, insinuating, and in fairness harmless fun, a film if made I would actually probably watch, it certainly looks better than the recent Cabin Fever, Evil Dead 2013.
I really had high expectations for this movie especially as it covers something that affects me and millions of others that is extreme nightmares and sleep paralysis, a condition where your brain thinks your awake yet you are still dreaming, yet you cannot move your body, and you feel like something else is in the room with you.
Plot summary, the Morgan's who are already suffering from grief, after losing a child to cot death, and their oldest son Daniel (Lucas Bond) is suffering night terrors, and a nightmare of something trying to suck the life out of him. They go to a Sleep expert Alice Arnolds (Maggie Q) who's own life suffered a tradegy when her brother died as a young child in a sleepwalking accident. These are resurfaced again after coming in contact with the boys family, who she is trying to help, with nightmares of her younger brother tormenting her once more. With her visions and nightmares getting progressively worse, and the boys life is in serious danger as these…
A rarity that a sequel surpasses the original, but to actually better it, and out smart it, is an amazing feat. I cannot put into words how good this movie is. A film that Ryan Reynolds was born to play, a natural comedian, the one liners, the piss taking of Marvel and DC, the whole X Men theme is ripped apart again, with Wade whizzing around the School for gifted, in Professor Xavier's chair saying it smells like Patrick Stuart. The action set pieces are bigger and better, the car, moped chase scene is worth the admission price alone. A film that was so naturally funny these days are a rarity alone, it is without doubt easily one of the funniest scripts ever. With spot on casting from the inclusion of Josh Brolin as Cable, cameos from Bill Skarsgård, to Terry Crews, Rob Delany as Peter. With outstanding performances from Zazie Beetz as Domino, and Hunt From The Wildness actor Julian Dennison as Firefist. This film is as close to perfection as any movie I'll ever go and see. …
