Perfume & Dust

I just watched Perfume: The Story of a Murderer. A recommendation from Purg about 4 months ago. It took so long to get to watch it as I was distracted by Octavian and Grey and Sawyer and Gabrielle.
Now Perfume. A brilliantly grotesque movie that told me you need to kill 13 beautiful women to get people to worship you and eventually devour you. All it takes is a sense of smell equal to a hound dog.

Quite disturbing. You gotta watch it.

But then if you want to be publicly disturbed, I would suggest Disturbia. Not half as good. But worth a watch if you feel like braving the crowds and going to our noisy malls. A movie about a 'disturbed' man being watched by a voyeuristic teenage neighbour.

With the semester coming to an end, I'm dreading the lengthy summer. Spoiled by teaching every other day, the summer daily teaching load is always a hassle. But after 7 weeks of daily torture the vacation arrives (and with it, another kind of torture).
How are you enjoying the dust this weekend?

You should also watch the more recent films I have recommended.

purg. I will. That will take another 4 months :)

alia. Madry I thought I'd listen to the purgatory voice of film wisdon. And guess what? It's an informed voice.

Purgatory said...

Alia, when it comes to movies, I am well informed and selective.

Purgatory said...

And speaking of the other movie, I doubt it would be as good as the original movie, Rear Window,

your kidding right :P .. did you skip through the orgy scene? or the part where he where he takes a sniff and can detect objects miles away .. I am all for sci fi and freaky deeky stuff .. but that was just unnecessary :P

my two cents

Shurouq said...

The orgy scene was so Spencer Tunick and uncalled for I agree.

It's a Purgatory recommendation?!
No wonder it gave me nightmares!
Thank you.
