My opinion on “Rebirth”

Hey, you still have the Manifesto?
The what?
The Manifesto, man.
Don’t tell me you threw it away.

Rebirth” is a psychological thriller of the Netflix collection. I certainly won’t deny that I have become a fervent supporter of the Netflix Originals series. I’ve seen already some great movies (“Spectral“, “iBoy“, “Before I Wake” and “Message from the king“). And also some less successful experiments (“Mute” and “Death note” eg). “Rebirth” is a special case and ends somewhere in the middle. In essence, it’s not such a bad movie, but there were certain aspects that made me really hate it. Some will even find it an annoying film. I still don’t know whether I should take this film seriously or not. If it was meant to be serious and tried to create an image of how similar organizations function, then it was rather frightening. If, however, it was meant to be satirical, I guess I haven’t noticed it then. For me it wasn’t really funny.

Rebirth

Don’t be boring.

For Kyle (FranThe LivingKranz) every day is a duplicate of the previous day. He can be seen as a settled and satisfied model citizen who carries out his day-to-day job. This seemingly carefree existence is thoroughly shaken up the day his crazy, hyper-kinetic ex-school friend Zack (AdamOnce upon a time in VeniceGoldberg) turns up in Kyle’s office and reminds him that they once wrote down a promise. A “Manifesto” with one important slogan : “Don’t be boring“. And that’s something Kyle, after agreeing to go to some bizarre reorientation weekend, is told several times. Unfortunately, “Rebirth” turned out to be somewhat boring with a disappointing final piece.

Rebirth

Don’t like your life. Love it !

Fran Kranz convincingly plays the confused and panicky Kyle, who sees his smooth going civilian life reduced to a chaotic, uncontrollable nightmare. It’s obvious the propagated message of the “Rebirth” program is all about self-control. “Rebirth” is about getting a grip on yourself and not apathetically following the course of the system (as zombies). According to Zack, it’s all about rediscovering yourself and start loving life back again. The only thing Kyle seems to experience is that it’s an insane and degrading program. The fact that Zack looks as if he has eaten too many psychedelic mushrooms, doesn’t seem to help him either.

Rebirth

I’d join this, just to experience the “Honesty Circle”.

To be honest, the film really got on my nerves at certain moments. For example, there is the dazzlingly handsome Naomi (Nicky Whelan) who has the annoying habit of answering every question with a question. It was driving me crazy. The exaggerated group events also felt like a sort of mass hysteria. And it became a bit too predictable when Kyle ended up in a pillow-filled room with a couple lovely, very tasty looking women whose sex lives are clearly as exhilarating as watching a chess game. It looked like a hippie commune. It also felt rather surreal and unearthly.

The denouement is kind of disappointing.

As I said before, specially the end is disappointing. Initially, you see an organization trying to recruit members by means of brainwashing and psychological pressure. I admit it was intriguing. But in the end it felt incomplete. Perhaps also due to the lack of any explanation. Initially, “Rebirth” looked like a sort of sect, full of esoteric ideas and dogmas, with the aim of allowing the participants to experience a rebirth in which all connections with their inculcating, self-centered living environment are cut. It wants to hold an imaginary mirror up to them and show that the participants are living in an artificial world controlled by others. That they are puppets in a social puppet theater where others pull the strings. Or also, an artificial bubble that you don’t want to pierce because of the comfort, their acquired status and financial security. Afterwards, it seems to be nothing else than a cheap sales organization of food products, which they try to sell through networking at well-organized home parties. In the end it felt like I had just attended a Tupperware demonstration.

My rating 5/10

PREY Review | A Brutal, Primeval Emotional Survival Epic

Published

on

PREY is one of the best entries in the Predator franchise. Director Dan Trachtenberg has crafted a brutal, primaeval & emotional survival epic powered by Comanche tradition which features a fierce performance from Amber Midthunder who kicks Ass as the animalistic Predator becomes her PREY!

Set in the Comanche Nation 300 years ago, “Prey” is the story of a young woman, Naru, a fierce and highly skilled warrior. She has been raised in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters who roam the Great Plains, so when danger threatens her camp, she sets out to prove herself a worthy hunter. The prey she stalks, and ultimately confronts, turns out to be a highly evolved alien Predator with a technically advanced arsenal, resulting in a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries.

.© 2022 20th Century Studios. All Rights Reserved.

“Prey” stars Amber Midthunder, newcomer Dakota Beavers, Stormee Kipp, Michelle Thrush, Julian Black Antelope, and Dane DiLiegro as the Predator. The film is directed by Dan Trachtenberg and written by Patrick Aison with a story by Patrick Aison & Dan Trachtenberg based on characters created by Jim Thomas & John Thomas. It is produced by John Davis, Jhane Myers, and Marty Ewing, with Lawrence Gordon, Ben Rosenblatt, James E. Thomas, John C. Thomas, and Marc Toberoff serving as executive producers.

The Predator franchise which is now a collection on Disney+ began with the 1987 film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and was directed by John McTiernan. It told the story of an elite set of mercenaries who form a team and head to the jungles of South America on a recovery mission. However, they find themselves hunted by an extraterrestrial warrior with an arsenal of high-tech weapons.

In “PREY” we witness the first time this creature comes to earth as the alien Predator lands his spacecraft in the Northern Great Plains in 1719, it’s looking to hunt for sport. The land however is inhabited by men, women, and children of the Comanche tribe, many of them skilled at hunting and are warriors themselves. What I thoroughly loved about “PREY” is that it shows how committed director Dan Trachtenberg and his crew were in creating a film that provides an accurate portrayal of the Comanche world at the height of their empire. This truly brings a level of authenticity and showcases the true experiences and the lives of its indigenous people. This phenomenal cast is comprised almost entirely of Native and First Nation talent.

Amber Midthunder brings a fierce and powerful performance to the role of Naru, a highly skilled Comanche warrior raised in the shadow of the legendary hunters who roamed the Great Plains. When danger threatens her camp, she sets out to protect her band and faces the supreme test when the prey she stalks and ultimately confronts turns out to be an alien Predator. Smart, confident, and resourceful, she is familiar with every inch of the surrounding landscape and its natural predators. Naru means “fight” in Comanche, which is more than appropriate for this character. She has strong ideas and opinions about things, her future, and her life. Her wants are quite different from what other people would assign to her or imagine for her, Midthunder truly leads with power.

.© 2022 20th Century Studios. All Rights Reserved.

Taabe, a young Comanche warrior played by newcomer Dakota Beavers truly shines in his debut. The leader of the band of Comanches, War Chief Kehetu is played by Julian Black Antelope. Aruka, Naru’s mother is played by Michelle Thrush. Aruka along with the rest of the older Comanche generation, wants her daughter to follow a more traditional path.

This primal David vs Goliath story also features the animalistic Predator, brought to life ferociously by Dane DiLiegro. This creature is a highly advanced alien seeking the strongest opponent. The Iconic Predator is the ultimate adversary, and one of the fiercest hunters in the universe, especially with its high-tech weaponry, cloaking, and heat-seeking abilities. This iteration of the character is more creature-like as it takes 300 years prior to the original.

“PREY is full of different kinds of Predators. The Comanches, hunt and fight for survival. Everything that they hunt is used and nothing is wasted for example they use every part of the buffalo and are also thankful for the spirit of that animal that’s able to nourish them, clothe them and ultimately is used for everything that they needed in life. Their fighting style is powerful and the costuming is traditional with authentic colours which ensures historical accuracy. They also have to be comfortable for the actors who do a good deal of horseback riding.

.© 2022 20th Century Studios. All Rights Reserved.

Principle photography on “PREY” began in June 2021 at the Stone Nakoda Nation near Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The entire production was filmed outdoors, with all the phenomenal exterior shots utilising the magnificent terrain of the Calgary landscape. The cinematography and the use of natural light were outstanding. Cinematographer Jeff Cutter has truly captured the epicness of dawn and dusk and embraces and respects nature. The earthy colours of the Comanche are black, red, and white and this colour pallet is well utilised through their face paintings. The score by Sarah Schachner is suspenseful and thrilling.

VERDICT

Overall It’s been 35 years since “Predator” first captivated audiences, and now fans have a chance to see the Predator in action once again. However, this particular “Predator” film truly revitalises the franchise with a deeply personal story and a thrilling hunt for survival.

Prey will be available to stream on Hulu and Disney+ Internationally on Friday, Aug. 5.

Thirteen Lives Review: Ron Howard’s Thai Cave Rescue Drama

Against all odds. One miracle that united the world.

Published

on

On June 23, 2018, 12 boys, ages eleven to sixteen, walked into Tham Luang Nang Non cave in northern Thailand along with their 25-year-old coach. Unexpected heavy rainfall soon trapped the young explorers in a life-or-death situation. Thirteen Lives recounts this incredible true story and of the tremendous global effort it took to rescue the soccer team. Faced with insurmountable odds, a team of the world’s most skilled and experienced divers- uniquely able to navigate the maze of flooded, narrow cave tunnels-join with Thai forces and more than 10,000 volunteers to attempt the harrowing rescue. With high stakes and the entire world watching, the group embarks on their most challenging dive yet, showcasing the limitless of the human spirit in the process. 

Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard crafts this unbelievable story with a visceral dramatic style as the film boasts immersive sound design, captivating cinematography, thrilling and suspenseful sequences and incredible performances as throughout, the film depicts how the rescuers, engineers, and divers tried everything in the face of outrageous odds. The movie at times made me feel claustrophobic as we witness the narrow underwater tunnels its tension driven but Howard centres the film’s narrative on the parents, volunteers and decision-makers, this adds to the film’s emotional weight as we as the audience are taken through each day and plan to reuse the boys and their coach. 

Prime Video

Thirteen Lives is a well-scripted and edited film that also showcases Thailand’s expansive natural beauty and Community. Monsoon season has strikingly arrived early and the cave becomes flash flooded trapping all thirteen on a ledge many miles inside what now has become dark underwater passages. The Navy Seals join forces with the volunteers and attempt to extract the boys. However, the pitch black waters and the tunnels become more perilous so an international effort intensifies so Rescue divers Rick Stanton (Viggo Mortensen) and John Volanthen (Colin Farrell) from the UK have the experience of diving where no one else had. They flew in to join 10,000 volunteers. The two men take on the mission of mapping the caves and in hope of finding these boys, they recruit more rescue divers including Australian physician Dr Richard Harris (Joel Edgerton) for the most dangerous and never seen rescue attempt. 

Prime Video

These characters based on real-life people showcase an example of cooperation, humanity and the power of expertise that happens when you’re under pressure. It’s a film that focuses brilliantly on suspense, mystery, fraught, and physical danger but also an emotional danger as we as the audience are on the edge of our seats anticipating the divers finding the boys, however, what does it mean if there’s a misstep? how long is the rescue really going to take? and what is the ultimate price that has to be paid to achieve this rescue operation?. Director Ron Howard has found critical success in crafting historical and biographical films like “Apollo 13” and “ A Beautiful Mind” He knows how to shoot the details which are utterly captivating. He also spent time with the real-life divers Rick Stanton and Jason Mallinson, and spoke with John Volanthen, Chris Jewell, and Dr Harris, collecting information. 

The film also boasts some emotional and incredible performances. The film puts together a team of actors and an International ensemble. To play Rick Stanton, three-time Academy Award nominee Viggo Mortensen brings a sense of stoicism, determination, and smart, grizzled humanism. And To play John Volanthen, Colin Farrell found that a mix of gentleness and heroism would be just the first layer of understanding the actual person he was playing, a man first seen as a father and family man.

Joel Edgerton portrays Dr Richard “Harry” Harris, an Australian cave diver and physician contacted by Stanton to help with the rescue. Each character is a determined protagonist but throughout the film we see them struggle and make sacrifices in order to rescue the boys. The emotional performances also come from the boys’ parents and the local Community and showcase Thai culture respectively. 

Prime Video

The film acts as a ticking clock thriller as we watch the divers proceed through the darkened waters. Every minute is tense and well utilised as the cameras show the impact of the rescue mission. Thirteen Lives is truly cinematic.
