Owen, Coen & Miike

Just finished Derailed (wanting to get my Clive Owen mancrush on) and the first hour left me uninterested and only mildly interested in the Chicago setting (despite the errors). But the 2nd half picked up when the twists finally arrived. Not a bad flick to take in while doing a little work.

The Man Who Wasn't There: Aliens! Who knew?!

Riki Takeuchi is a gas to watch in Deadly Outlaw: Rekka, another of Takashi Miike's earlier yakuza flicks. The editing is nuts and the story gets nearly as crazy as DOA at the end but still an entertaining flick.
