Run, Lola, Run

2006-08-16

Don’t quite know why I ordered this DVD — I guess mostly because it’s a bit of a cult classic and I wondered why. On watching, it became fairly obvious. It’s gots lots of wobbly, hand-held camera moves (sorry, this still make me travel sick, even if they are cool), loud and occasionally intrusive background music, some cartoon segments. The premise is an old one — what if things were slightly different, pick your own alternative ending.

As a film, it’s not bad; it’s quite watchable, even exciting at points, but in the end, I felt that I was watching a music video rather than a film. It has become a modern, cult classic — I doubt that it will become just a classic.
