(Or The One where Zhang Peng invents online shopping several hundred years early. Well, without the ‘online’ part, anyway. Oh, you’ll see what I mean soon enough.)
This week’s non-Exiern featured item is the film “The Skin I Live In”.
I’m not going to say anything about it except that I think you should see it. It’s really good but can be quite harrowing, so check the ratings of the movie and see if you think this is for you. Best to go in totally blind but here’s the official trailer. However, a lot of the comments do say that they think it gives away too much plot. So, it’s up to you, really if you watch the trailer. Though I guess it is fair to say that scientific progress can leave a lot of failed experiments and test subjects in its wake, I really wouldn’t want to be the person tasked with digging up the floor of that basement to find out what’s buried here.
One thing I will say as a lesson to take away from this film or even this trailer is that if you own a firearm, please don’t leave it loaded in desk and kitchen drawers. It would save a lot of people a lot of grief if they didn’t do things like this. Definitely in this film and history clearly shows continuously what happens with poorly or unsecured firearms in real life as well.
Maybe these clips might be better than the actual trailer instead to give you an idea of what the films like without giving away too much:
OK, out of context, maybe that all skews a bit too far in the opposite direction. All I can say, it’s a potentially disturbing film but I liked it.
Great soundtrack too, this is the music from the trailer.

Zhang Peng has found himself having to regularly deal with the other wives and their problems. Not what he had in mind when he first wanted to spend a lot of time with them. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
