A painting of me


   26 September 2005, early evening

I watched Kontroll last night with Mezan and Carvill. The movie is about a bunch of hard-boiled ticket agents, working out of a non-descript subway system in a non-descript land. Kontroll was filmed in Budapest, and opens with an introduction from whomever is in charge of the subway system there explaining the movie is entirely fiction, and that people shouldn’t get upset by it—strange. The film is very stylish; I liked the way it was shot. There are some really cool sequences in the film. The story is pretty bare, and the film is quite slow. Watching the trailer, you would not expect this. I liked the movie, you may want to check it out. (Also, the film features a kick-ass soundtrack.)

  1. I really liked the little world they managed to create for this film where everyday is a battle for the ticket collectors.

  5. Thanks for the link! I think a ton of people have been showing up at this post hoping to find out more info on the soundtrack.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

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.
