Lost Souls

Recommended Posts

Hi

Do you like this film? I think it is very dark, very pounding. The background is a mix of madness, exorcism, search for redemption and the plot deals with the coming of the antichrist. I liked the way all was laid into the hands of very common people, feeble, non-trustworthy ones.

The end was particular, leaving the watcher with no certainty about the reality of the events. It was like MM with no Frank Black around to put a name on everything, with no analyse of the Evil surroundings, with no Group to check the prophecies.

The whole story looks like some kind of recycled one in my words, but I would say the film is worth a try.

Regards

I have tried to watch it but this movie just didn't click with it despite it having Winnona Ryder in it.   I always seem to catch it at different parts and then turn a few minutes later.  The movie just seems boring and full of cliches.  Have a better one.

Be Seeing You,

I specifically went to see this movie, as I do often, because it seemed to have Millenniumistic qualities.  I really liked the film.  I thought the flashes, visions, and sort of alternate realities were excellently portrayed and played out.  I really liked the look of the film as well, very dark, gloomy, gritty almost.  I would recomend it, as well.

Nice Millenniumistic spotting, Wellington!

I think I will give this movie another viewing in the near future and come back to discuss it some more.

"They've had their 2000 years..."  This really struck me as a quote that a member of a rival group/organization/secret society would say about the Millennium Group.  Even the way he said it and the actor saying it seemed like a character that would fit right in to MLM (the show, or the Group).

Hey, I love this thread and all the discussion of these Millenniumistic movies. I don't know if I have made mention of this film before or not, but it really worked for me. As I might have mentioned before, there are many aspects of a film that can make it enjoyable, and many things that can compensate for other short comings. To me, the film Lost Souls is all about style. I don't even know who directed it, but I loved the style he used throughout the film. I agree, this film is cliched at times and lacks originality to some degree, but there is enough originality in this movie to get the job done. What I really loved about it was the mood, the look, and the feel of the movie, and that aspect of it was very creative and original. The overall idea behind the movie might be a little rehashed, but I think the details of the script were actually pretty original, and I didn't really get the feeling I had seen it all before. I hate to sound like a guy, but Winnona was simply stunning in this movie and as beautiful as anything I have seen in any film. I think it was the way the lighting and makeup was used, but she also plays a great, vulnerable and likable character. I can't count how many times I have seen this film, including three times during a lengthy stint at the $1 movie theater at one of the local malls, but this is one of those cases where style overcomes some flaws, and some great acting, casting and characters make it well worth a viewing.

Another one right on the money again MB! You really are finding these interesting old posts, aren't you? Please keep it up!!! :yes:

There is a soft place in my heart for this film too; and you are right, it does indeed have a lot of style. Again, yet ANOTHER film I haven't seen for a few years; when I saw it last I was not familiar with MillenniuM, so I haven't made the connection. But, now that I read this and think back it is DEFINITELY there! Excellent choice for discussion...

BTW, the director is Janusz Kaminski and this is the only film that he has directed, BUT he is a REALLY well know cinematographer and has directed the photography in some powerful and visual films such as 'Saving Private Ryan' (or as Joe would suggest 'Saving Ryan's Privates' : ) 'Minority Report', 'War of the Worlds' and a number of other visually stunning films, thus the 'STYLE' that you mentioned that was so apparent! :yes:

Oh, and you are absolutely right about Wynona Ryder in this film! I am not particularly a fan of hers, but in this film she friggin' ROX!!! I think the long beautiful hair doesn't exactly hurt either :nope:
