SELF/LESS – JELLYFISH EYES – A HARD DAY

This is a real “watch this, not that,” segment this time. Self/less was the “serious” opening last weekend — directed by overt stylist Tarsem Singh, starring Ryan Reynolds and Ben Kingsley — and the worst sin that could be levelled at it was that it was kind of stoopid. But then, the weekend also saw the debut of a couple of more compelling releases: Jellyfish Eyes, a family film send-up directed by Japanese artist Takashi Murakami; and the delirious Korean noir comedy A Hard Day. Only thing to do is to give ’em all their due and leave it to my listeners’ good judgement. Click on the player to hear the segment, or right-click the link to download.
