Cinecast Episode 202 – Obviously You’re Not a Golfer

 

It is a cornucopia, a smörgåsbord, a veritable potpourri of cinema, as the Cinecast regulars get together with nothing on the agenda other than to talk about what they have watched, in the cinema, on the DVD and streamed from the internet or (in an exciting technology development, from the Computer Hard Drive.) Andrew continues to dig into the Foreign Language Nominees with Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Biutiful. Kurt comes at Oscar a different way with the new documentary on the man with the midas touch when it comes to little gold men, Harvey Weinstein. And Gamble talks best animated film of 2011 with a preview of the flat out awesome Gore Verbinski/Nickelodeon/Industrial-Light-And-Magic Johnny Depp western, Rango. From there, we go from the occult, to Penelope Cruz DTV failures, to two vastly different takes time travel from the 1980s to Chinese shopping malls. Then it is onto Romans wandering about Scotland, Aussie crime dynasties and suburban teenage prostitution rings! It is all a part of your complete breakfast.

Review: The Human Centipede (First Sequence)

Director: Tom Six
Writer: Tom Six
Producers: Tom Six, Ilona Six
Starring: Dieter Laser, Ashley C. Williams, Ashlynn Yennie, Akihiro Kitamura
MPAA Rating: NR
Running time: 90 min


I have seen one or two things in my day. I’ve been to plenty of midnight madness pictures, I’ve been to several genre film festivals and watched a guy get his arm halfway ripped off during a rodeo. I’ve seen Teeth, Irreversible, Inside and I’ve even seen a close-up of Jesus’ anus being washed by midgets. And I’m sure I’ve probably seen something more squirm inducing, facial cringing or “fingernails digging into your arm rest” type of movie scenes than anything in The Human Centipede, but for the life of me I can’t think of what they might be.

If you’ve been around the movie nets lately, you’re probably no stranger to the premise of The Human Centipede, but I’ll give it to you anyway. In a nutshell, a mad scientist captures unsuspecting victims into his isolated home and conducts experiments on them. More specifically, he needs at least three “specimens” in order to make what the movie’s title refers to as a human centipede. By surgically attaching a person’s mouth to another’s bung hole and severing the tendons in the knee, he creates what essentially looks like one part of what roughly resembles a giant centipede. Attach another’s mouth to the tail end and voila! You essentially have a human centipede. And yes, it’s as gross as it sounds.
