Byzantium Byzantium R
"Byzantium" plays the long game as a vampire tale and doesn't resort to cheap tricks and illusions. It isn't a scary vampire flick but brings out the side of living an eternal life filled with a lack of freedom that one might expect longevity to bring. At the centrefold is the touchy relationship of a mother-daughter vampire duo, played convincingly by Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan. It's dark and compelling, shrouded by a fog of mystery which starts to clear as the story unravels. Its slow, moody presentation only adds to the realism of them having nothing but time. Now that I think about it, it is the vampire version of one of my favourite films, "Never Let Me Go," where existence is a constant questioning to the people involved.
The Future The Future R
I thought "Me and You and Everyone We Know" was eccentric enough but "The Future" had multiple layers of eccentricity, which worked and didn't work to the film's advantage. I was swaying back and forth from liking it to finding it pointless to pondering its themes to disliking the characters of "The Future."
