Battle in Heaven

   11 September 2005, late at night

Battle in Heaven was a slow film, similar in pacing to Gus Van Sant’s Elephant. The movie focuses on an old fat man, Marcos, as he has a bit of a nervous breakdown after a botched kidnapping of a baby. I really enjoyed this film. It is quite explicit at times. The opening sequence and the ending sequence in particular are quite graphic (sexually). There is hardly any music in the film, most of the sound in the film is just ambient noise from the city the film is set in. Most shots are very long, with hardly any cuts. This is what reminded me of Elephant. The leading lady in the film is also insanely hot.

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
