649 : Movie 31 : Franklyn

Saw a Brit movie called Franklyn. Tries to masquerade as an art movie, but honestly goes nowhere in my opinion.

Having said that:
1. Some of the characters are etched out brilliantly.
2. The world of the past, really conveys a true gothic sense. Excellent use of camera and techniques.
3. Eva Green has done a outstanding job of a artist with an over the edge troubled past.
4. Some excellent dialogues.

"If a god is willing to prevent evil, but not able, then he is not omnipotent. If he is able, but not willing, then he must be malevolent. If he is neither able or willing, then why call him a god?”

7/10 for those 4 aspects. Watch it, if you plan to make a movie or are learning it. Just remember, every movie needs to have a purpose and a plot – esp. if it is made for commercial entertainment. This director seems to have forgotten that.
