During my vacation, I travel to different locations in Tokyo (by Train), and cycle around there. Besides enjoying the scenery and good food (which of course I plan ahead where to eat), I really enjoy the experience.
Unfortunately, I realized I don’t take enough photos during these trip.
The following are the two only photos I took from my Asakusa (浅草）area tour.
While in 5 or 6 chapters we are dragged into a dark world of uncertainty. Of mystery, we are left with a simple story with huge holes in the plot.
Want to add some more frustrations:
When listening to the song, Cora attacks and inflict injuries in the same pattern as the murder. Does not make sense, so why the script spent so much time around it. She was not repeating a previous pattern, as there was no such pattern
Frankie’s parents – You just can’t drop it out of the blue. At least give us a scene of which the parents are confronted with Cora in a way that gives a hint that they know her.
Why was JD limping ? No reason? – no connection to that night ?
Maddie disappeared , but not really as JD kept in touch with her
As I left the movie theater, heard a couple complaining about the movie. From what I heard they felt it was too long, story was too slow.
Well, I loved it.
Obviously the story is rather simple, but the movies is not about scene twists or complex stories, but about visuals, about some fundamental questions of Robot usage and their place in the world.
If a replicant can love and reproduce, is it still a replicant ? Movie shows replicants being killed as something almost obvious, but also shows murder of human by a replicant. is there a difference? Can a replicant fall in love with a virtual figure ?
As a trivia fun, it was interesting to see Coca Cola add in Hebrew as well as Atari.
Visuals, visuals, visuals. Go to see the movie and sink slowly into the atmosphere.
