Journey to the End of Night #

Released 12/31/1982

Description: The recollections of a shattered and traumatised man, a former escapee from the advancing Japanese units relates the horrors of war, his doubts and misgivings of the help of comrades, his fear for the loss of his greatest friend, and of course, his own fear of dying. "Journey to the End of Night" is the diary of a soldier. Although it was filmed forty years after the event, it is a timeless universal testimony because of its power and emotion. It is the voice of an individual raised vs the violence, the horror and the futility of war. The movie raises one question which continues to haunt us: a soldier is trained to kill, but not to commit murder. Who can draw the line?

Monument #

Released 1/1/1976

Description: The clacking of heels on the floor, to the rhythm of a measured walk, accompanies the movement of a camera that scrutinises a boy in close up. Slowly, the camera turns around him, from his feet on the floor to the top of his head. The boy doesn't transport a muscle, with his arms lying straight by his side, as though he has become an object under a woman's eye, identifiable by the sound of her footsteps. The closeness of the camera fragments and fetishises the body. There are no wide shots at any mission that might enable the boy to be identified. The fragments glimpsed by the camera do not deliever any identifying markers, rendering the overall view disproportionate. Like a "monument", the figure is presented to the audience.

His antagonist Timothy discovered a gold bearing creek many years ago. Actually he spends his winters in the Philippines while toiling away in the summertime.

Dear Jack Reviews:

Narrated by close mate and collaborator Tommy Lee, 'Dear Jack' is a very private acc largely pieced together from home footage taken by Andrew and his family when he was diagnosed with Leukaemia. He realised that documenting his experiences and treatment would be a productive activity and may be of benefit to others in a related situation.I've often wondered why more folks don't know about Andrew and his melody and why his magnificent 'Everything in Transit' album wasn't a bigger hit. This movie explains why, as his disease coincided with the release and he was unable to place in all the promotional efforts that might have otherwise been done. Interestingly many of the album lyrics refer to being ill, the first line of the entire album is "She thinks I'm much too thin, she asks me if I'm sick". It's fascinating to see how this and another lines tip at that he had a feeling he wasn't well long before the diagnosis.The movie documents so much, from March 2005 pre-release gigs to build excitement for the album, through diagnosis and the rapid developments, just a several months soon in June 2005 shaving his hair off, an unexpected transition from rising rock star to patient. We follow all this, learning much about the condition, treatment, and what is involved from a true sufferer's mission of view. As well as Andrew's own footage, there are bits in which his family, girlfriend, even his doctor speaks, both about their observations of how he appeared to them, but also how it made them feel. Hearing their perspectives and how they felt to see this event and doing what they should to support all adds so much to rounding out the full acc of the situation. There are interesting tiny insights that I don't think I had any prior knowledge of, from hearing that pneumonia is now the cause of death for over 40% of folks in his situation, to seeing how he uses a lint roller to accumulate loose hair as it falls out, and even the more serious matters such as deciding if he wants to freeze some sperm so he should have a family soon in life and telling that he's not even sure if he wants a family.At times we see handwritten letters and notes as Andrew's feelings are very honestly documented. At one mission he goes through quite a negative period and hits his lowest point. Even at this time he is still songwriting and writes a pretty song, 'There there Katie' (which has incidentally just come on my headphones) for his sister. Symptoms receive to terrible during this scene of his treatment that he couldn't movie for a while, but as an audience we're not left at a loss to follow happenings as this in itself speaks volumes about the situation.Andrew's record label stuck by him and respected his wishes through the course of his treatment and recovery. I like how much this offers a refreshing contrast to the fictional record executives you often see in movies who are often portrayed as soulless cash grabbers. Andrew's squad supported him, did what they should for the album and then when he was more able they helped arrange a '100 days' milestone present which brings us back to the perfect music. One of the 'silver linings' in a method is how nice it is to hear about the meaning behind these songs I know and love as Andrew touches on how the album came to be. That was also the nicest part of seeing Andrew McMahon live, he explained the background to some of the songs and the lyrics suddenly took on added meaning.Strangely and almost unexpectedly a real love storyline emerges from the midst of everything else. Andrew becomes very reflective on his failed relationship, he ponders over the "Yoga folks tell I've got a broken heart". I don't wish to spoil things, but there's a satisfied ending and it adds such an uplifting aspect to the entire story.I heartily suggest that everyone could give 'Everything in Transit' (now re-released for the 10th Anniversary) a listen, plus for the happenings covered in this movie he wrote songs that appear on the 'Dear Jack EP' which is only a handful of songs but each one of them is brilliant and pretty and so intensely filled with meaning and poignancy after seeing this and understanding what they're about. With a decade of hindsight some of the things told in this film, especially about wanting a family, are able to be seen in a more positive light as Andrew is actually the extremely proud father of a tiny woman Cecilia, who has influenced his more newest music. He also set up the Dear Jack Foundation which does a lot of work for adolescent leukaemia patients.As told at the outset I'm reviewing this actually as it's currently accessible on Netflix and I think it's really worth a look, not just for fanatics of Andrew and his music, but for anyone. It offers a rarely seen insight on being diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, not the fictionalised versions we are used to seeing in movies such as '50/50', 'The Fault in our Stars' or 'A Walk to Remember' which in their own method have a zone and something to say, but this is a real- life acc and thankfully one that has a satisfied ending and offers hope and optimism.For more of my reviews visit www.neverkissedagirl.com
