Well, this film was my big debut. You can see me in a blurry stage when the crew passes through New Orleans. "THE FAMILY THAT PREYS" is Mr. Perry's most recent film. I am tempted to say that this is his best film to date. The film has a nicely crafted story. The film can make you think that it is predictable but you are unsure of when and how the drama will arrive. With a cast full of good actors it is easy to appreciate this film. I enjoyed "WHY DID I GET MARRIED" and "DIARY OF A MAD BLACK WOMAN". "WHY DID I GET MARRIED" (sorry for all caps- lazy) was a good dramatic story that was polished. I believe he is learning how to keep it simple and keep it tight.
A new feature to this film was that he added white characters. I don't remember any non-black actors in his other films. I saw Tyler on the cover of some magazine with the headline "...How Oprah changed his life". I wonder what happened. Well, come back soon my next post will include several films.

The last movie I watched was....CHI-HWA-SEON
translated "painted fire"
This is another gem from S. Korea.
(haha)This movie is very slow and is kinda like reading a poem that doesn't become clear until after you have read it and really thought about it. The angry painter played by Min-sik Choi (from "Old Boy") is crazy. I think all in all I feel his pain. An artist can go through so much. I bought the film when Hollywood Video was closing. I noticed two things made in Korea and that it had won an award.

Stay tuned for another bunch of reviews. I need to update after each movie I watch.
