The Return of Controlled Cinematic Haiku

The Visitor


Needs just one more scene:
Home, after drums in subway:
Call Air Syria

Also: not sure fairness is the issue. But so, so many beautiful scenes.

    I should have some semi-coherent and semi-public thoughts on this film in the not-too-distant future. I am anxious to hear more about your impressions.

    The “not sure fairness is the issue” comment gives me some insight, I suspect. But I’d like to hear more…perhaps in an “unworried about spoilers” environment such as this. Might work better than IC in that regard.

  2. Matthew Lickona says

    Maybe we should chat after you post your review? Or not. Your call.

    HERE they are. Ended up a bit less coherent than I wanted. The word limit cost me a couple of points I really wanted to make, so it may not be as “nuanced” as the film requires. The Jenkins/Hiam Abbass chemistry was really amazing to me. So much subtlety.

    I was going to try and wait until I saw Twilight so we could kill two birds with one stone, but I’ve got the “Wyoming Makes It Hard To Watch Anything Current That’s Not Spiderman or The Dark Knight” problem. Sounds like a fascinting film, though.

    What “chat” programs to you have in mind? Gchat? Or perhaps something even more traditional?
