Is So! We Are No Thing.

by mehaul on Apr 21, 2010

TITLE: No Such Thing GENRE: Fantasy drama CAST: Sarah Polley, Robert John Burke, Helen Mirren and Julie Christie PLOT: A monster wants no part in existing in this world anymore but he cannot die. Enter the Miracle girl who survived a jumbo-jet crash into the middle of the ocean. She does her miracle stuff for him (or is it us she does it for?) RETURN ON INVESTMENT: 9.5 of 10; This is one of two things: either a new take on the Beauty and the Beast story or an entirely new type of predicament described. Many go with option one but if you go with the latter, this is a tremendously interesting investigation into the very nature of existence. I go with that one. The dialogue is superb, You can see from the cast that there is a lot of talent to direct and well directed it is. The starkly barren scenes of Iceland serve to remind me that in all the physical universe there is such a thing as life and it is here on earth, just as the villagers existing is a miracle. DVD BONUS: None (a shame. The movie was not well recievd and I think the creator, Hal Hartley, is punishing us by not explaining anything) ADDED NOTES: Polley is the little girl who believed in Baron Munchausen (how appropriate a casting, she gets to believe again!) . Burke is Father Mikey from "Rescue Me" and did stints as Robocop. There is much to muse over about this film. While I'm doing that, why don't you go watch "No Such Thing"?


a fresh new take on life

by elektrofunkster on Apr 2, 2009

in today's world of videos, it is rare to find this keen philosophical take on society.. this movie has a lot of subtle remarks that make it very entertaining to the intelligent movie watcher... in a film world of crashes and explotions, it is nice to see something that is new and fresh and takes us back to movies that make you think...
