To put this blunty, for Fucks sake all movies need to take notes on this Film. A whirling Surrealist spectacle, based loosley enough in reality to become incredibly relatable and touching, but not loosley enough to pay attention to pay heed to concepts like gravity, physics, or death. Survive Style 5 + takes five 5 seemingly unrelated characters, situations, and plots to twirl them into scenes that shock, confuse, and dazzle. Written byTaku Tada, and directed Gen Sekiguchi this film manages to ask so many questions, answer a few of them, and leave the audience with just enough food for thought, so that it sticks in your head like a good hot chocolate coats your throat. A Japanese film released in 2004, it highlights actors like Tadanobu Asano, Vinnie Jones, and Sonny Chiba playing refreshingly obscure roles.
It feels as if Takashi Murakami, made love to Octapussy in a swingers lounge on LSD, and this film was the mind blowing culmination. Sets designed to truly a perfect level, Shots composed in a way that I hadn't ever seen before. The Acting is so spectacular that on of the five plots is played out almost entirely without words, and is at the same time touching, tragic, and hilarious.
Kehinde Wiley, A brilliant painter out of South Central Los Angeles. His angle on his Subject Matter is fresh to say the least. He compliments it wonderfully with a well honed love of craft. His pieces are arresting to say the least, Captivating, and stirring. His Colours are magnificent. Go to his Website and enjoy I have only posted a few works here, but he has an extensive collection of work. All of this Caliber.these pieces are massive, 6-8 feet tall, they tower over you in just another reference to classical hero portraiture, an aspect that Wiley is completely cognitive of, he actively uses these references in order to question those figures, and of course the figures he presents us, hood figures. Over all I am blown away by Kehinde Wiley, Spectacular Subject married with other worldly craft, and timed perfectly.
