Re: NIGHT WATCH/DAY WATCH - Timur Bekmambetov

The thing I love about Bekmambetov is that he feels absolutely ZERO fidelity towards the laws of physics or even the laws of movie-physics. His movies are just jam packed with impossible, implausible shit that just looks badass! (Have him direct Samuel L. Jackson in a Quentin Tarantino script, and I think the universe might just implode from the new imbalance in the style:substance ratio.)

As for Night Watch & Day Watch, I liked them both. However, I felt that Night Watch got too bogged down in dense, ponderous philosophy right at the end when it needed less talk & more movement.
