anyone seen these two films?
Mirrormask or The Piano Tuner Of Earthquakes?
evil dolly wrote me:
"there's a scene in Mirrormask that I thought was pretty neat. I don't know if it's up your alley or not, it's kind of a journey through a teenage girl's dreamworld. Some really great effects and imagery. But there's this one scene where the girl is dressed and transformed into her dark alter-ego by a group of strange, life-size, mechanical music box dolls who sing off key."
and another i found by accident whose synopsis is very tantilising:
The Piano Tuner Of Earthquakes is the breathtakingly beautiful second film from the brothers Quay. On the eve of her wedding, the beautiful opera singer Malvina is mysteriously killed and abducted by the malevolent Dr. Droz. Felisberto, an innocent piano tuner, is summoned to Droz's secluded villa so that they can service his strange musical automatons. Little by little, Felisberto learns of the doctor's plan to stage a "diabolical opera" and of Malvina's macabre 'demise'. as he secretly conspires to rescue her, Felisberto becomes trapped in the web of Droz's perverse universe...
curiously it's a brother quay film that was exec produced by Terry Gillian.
so please post some reviews and don't forget to write me if you have any other yummy finds :-)
