Rate: 0 Flag

Posting the following after a request from Julie at the Starz Film Center:


Its coming to the Starz Film Center, and will be playing Aug. 20th to the 26th.

David Lynch and Warner Herzog...YIKES!

Synopsis:

My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done? is a film directed by Werner
Herzog and produced by David Lynch, inspired by the true story
of murderer Mark Yavorsky. Herzog describes the film as
"a HORROR film without the blood, chainsaws and gore, but with
a strange, anonymous FEAR creeping up in you".


The film was originally planned for production in the Summer of
2008, but was postponed in favor of Herzog's Bad Lieutenant:
Port of Call New Orleans. Information about the film was
first released at a press conference at the 2008 Cannes Film
Festival. Filming began around San Diego, California in
March 2009. It was nominated for the Golden Lion at the 66th
Venice International Film Festival. It was the first time in
Venice film festival history that there are two Golden Lion
nominated films both directed by the same director in one year.

Yes! I really liked it. I saw a press-copy of the film in Los Angeles, and HIGHLY recommend you see it! Yes, it IS a matter of personal taste, but in my opinion, "true" film lovers are open to all films (okay, so maybe that's a stretch, but...you get my point). I'm a hugr Lynch fan, and Werner never seizes to pleasantly surprise me with hin "nutty" surrealism. Very "artistic" and amusing film, worth checking out, regardless of your taste in indie films. Michael Shannon is awesome in this (but that doesn't surprise me, as a 2009 Oscar nominee!). Go see it. Judge for yourself. ;-)

Jeff....
I agree. I saw the same press copy in L.A. (have we met?? lol!). I've been a Herzog fan for years, so maybe I'm biased...but I recommend this one. Whether you love it or you don't love it, its still a phenomenal project. Jeff...I say: "Razzle them...dazzle them. Razzle, dazzle...!".
Okay (... Maureen...? That's my wife, folks, who just posted under my name...so um, yes, I'd say we DO "know eachother". ;-) ) But I can vouch...we BOTH did love it. That's the point.
