Wisconsin Film Festival 2008: Saturday (2 of 2)

I finished up Saturday by seeing two more films-- suspense films this time.


The Case (Xiang zi)


The CaseThis Chinese film was about a man, who one morning, found a suitcase floating down the river. As he brought it home and opened it up, he discovered it was filled with cut up body parts frozen in ice.


In panic, he struggles to hide the suitcase and its contents... meanwhile his wife thinks all the sneaking around is because he's cheating on her. This misunderstanding takes over the topic of the film, as you start to hear or learn less and less about the suitcase.

The movie was interesting... funny at times... but nothing spectacular. The ending was weird.

Stuck

StuckThe movie follows the true story of a woman who hits a man which gets stuck in her windshield. The man was having such a horrible and rotten day, it was only natural the next thing that would happen is he gets hit by a car.


The woman, however, is up for a promotion at work. In panic, instead of calling 911 or dropping the man off at a hospital, she ends up driving home to her garage with the man still in the windshield. She then subsequently learns that he's not exactly dead.

The movie soon turns into a race-- can he somehow get help before she "takes care of" him?

The movie was significantly more gory and bloody than I had expected. It's always fun to watch a movie like this with a large crowd, as you could hear the whole audience of a few hundred people all cringe at once.
