Just finished watching a Blu-ray for the second time within the past
year or so. It's one of those films that has a very overpowering effect
on me with each viewing. That being said, I know it's one of those titles
that would be quite difficult to persuade others to see.
That got me thinking.....
[color=#a52a2a;]What film evokes quite a bit of emotion for you, yet would be something[/color]
[color=#a52a2a;]quite difficult to persuade others to watch for one reason or another?
How would you sell that film to all of us in order to persuade readers to [/color]
[color=#a52a2a;]take [/color][color=rgb(165,42,42);]a chance and watch it themselves?[/color]
It can be a new or old film. Just has to be available on Blu-ray.
[color=#a52a2a;]Please give us the pros of that film and the cons you feel might make[/color]
[color=#a52a2a;]it a difficult watch. [/color]
Here is an example...
The Pros: This psychological drama isn't what it starts out to be. I don't
want to ruin its true premise, however, once the underlying story gets put
into motion, it is one of the most haunting (and possibly realistic) views of
what an Apocalypse might look like.
Big Plus: Kirsten Dunst, Keifer Sutherland star, with support by John Hurt.
The Cons: The kind of film you would find in an art house. Not that it's
necessarily a con, but already you know it's off the beaten trail. It moves
painfully slow. It's a very depressing film, because it centers on a character
with depression. The first hour is very difficult to get through not knowing what
is going on -- though certain things of what's to come are "hinted" at. At exactly
the 1 hour point, the film takes a turn and moves on to the really good stuff.
If its effective, it will haunt and stay with you for a very long time.
