I remember watching Repo Men back in the early 80's with Emilio Esteves. That was pretty cool back then with the punk music to go along with it.
But tonight I just finished watching a flick called Repo. The Genetic Opera.
Opera is one genre of music I have a hard time with. However. This flick managed to do a damn good job of mixing opera like lyrics with industrial sounding music with a lot of cool gothic and industrial images to go along with how society has evolved.
It is from the producers of Saw. Which I have not seen any of those yet. But this is about the most industrial of chud flicks I have seen as it is based on what the world could become as it is already part way there.
Ogre is in it and as the dvd was given to me by a true Skinny Puppy conesuire. I decided that this night would be the night to watch it as yesterday was the internation Goth day. 'ohGr' had a great part and he played it like the professional he is. And then to see and hear him in the commentary of the making of the film was the icing on the cake. I was real proud in a happy way to see Ogre in this film.
To summerize. Without going in to much of what the screen play was like in its extremely blood like statement of how human culture is going. It is like a real life cartoon within a sur real society that very well does resemble parts of our messed up world now.
It kept getting better as it went along. The screen play, the performance, and the music. The most modern / industrial music opera film feature that has been done yet. I was thinking when watching it that it is like between Bladerunner and the Rocky Horror Picture Show. And then it was commentated as such in the commentary. That really tricked me out.
If there is any interest in a slighty more modern, damaged world, science fiction / film noir.
I would recommend this film with its crazy ass screan play.
And I would look forward to any comments from any if seen already or after seeing.
Cheers and enjoy.
