Let the Right One In (2008) Directed by Tomas Alfredson I had been meaning to watch this movie for quite some time, and got to see it as part of the Cinephiles Film Club's Swedish Retrospective, last month. Last week, CFC also held a panel discussion on the Swedish movies watched in June, of which I was a part. I discussed this movie and gave my analysis of it. Some of those points are spoilers, but I still want to cover them here. So, I'll move them to the first comment on this post (if you are reading this elsewhere, on Facebook for example, you can come to Instagram and see the comment). The movie is an adaptation of the book by John Ajvide Lindquist (who also wrote the screenplay). It's about the relationship between the lonely 12 year old Oskar and a girl Eli, who moves in next door. The exact nature of what Eli is considered a spoiler by some, so I won't mention it here. Suffice to say she is different, and lonely in her own way, so the two find a connection. The movie was very well made. It had a relatively slow pace, and was very subtle. Nothing called attention to itself (sound, music, violence, drama), except when it needed to, which made it more effective. I loved the cinematography (Hoyte Van Hoytema, "Interstellar" and Alfredson's "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy"), the movie had a clean look and lovely visuals. I really liked the movie and would rate it an 8/10. I intend to watch the remake "Let Me In" as well. This is a sketch of Eli from the movie, from a particular scene that I discussed during my talk on the movie (details again, in the first comment). I believe it's one of the important scenes in the movie as it reflects many of the themes, and was very well crafted.The sketch was done with pencil and a red colour pencil, and scanned. #273 / 12-Jul-17
