The Bloody Olive.

As I was going through my old Youtube favourites, I found this short film from 1996 by Vincent Bal called The Bloody Olive. This has to be up there for greatest short films of all time. A genius concept, perfectly executed, and great acting to boot. Give it a chance, if you watch this and you hate it you are even more stupid than you look.

PS – The only movie with more twists than this is the John Travolta classic, Basic. I dare you to go rent that film. The ending is “incredible”.

PPS – If anyone actually goes and rents Basic and can prove it somehow (with a photo of themselves watching it perhaps) I will give them a t-shirt.

The Fall

The film that just jumped to my most anticipated of the year: The Fall. I don’t know what it means for David Fincher and Spike Jonze to (both) be presenting this film buuut it looks incredible. Directed by Tarsem (who also directed the The Cell).

I see one shot in there that is straight up jacked from Baraka but if you’re going to steal you might as well steal from the best.
