My recommendations for movie watching this week in L.A. 7/24-31/2015
boxtrollsON NETFLIX: The Boxtrolls is an animated feature about a young boy, Eggs, living underground with some trolls who live in boxes and collect garbage. When the power hungry Snatcher plans to exterminate all the trolls to gain influence over the city, Eggs must make himself known to stop the ruthless villain. An exciting film with beautiful animation, it gains more depth if one thinks of it as a metaphor for the rise of Nazism.
exterminating angelON HULU: The Exterminating Angel is one of Luis Bunuel’s greatest movies. Made while he was in exile from Spain in Mexico, the film revolves around a group of bourgeoisie who, after a dinner party, find they can’t leave a room in the house. They are trapped as their food diminishes and they have to consider such things as bathroom facilities and sex. Not to be missed.
