4.0 out of 5 stars Yellow Peril, 27 Feb 2014
This review is from: The Yellow Sea (DVD)
Korean film noir thriller with a contemporary feel, whose engine is its own powerful forward momentum.

For the most part we follow the anti-hero protagonist 'x' across a gritty narrative arc set in and around the 'Yellow Sea'(between Korea and China), a literal and metaphorical no-mans land of crime, illegal work and people trafficking, a hidden world which lends the movie a frisson of edgy topicality and reminiscent at times of W.Friedkin's 'The French Conneciton'. Similarly, the grimy, down to earth setting belies the film's compelling taut slickness. The director (who also directed 'The Chaser') draws out plenty of tension from the dark underworld setting. It's a shame that the 'Bourne-movie' slickness tends to dominate later on, charging furiously and headlong through so many plot twists and dramatic escapes that it concludes on a mawkish and exhausted note. For thrill-seakers though 'The Yellow Sea' is a 'Must Sea'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant Discovery, Satisfied Customer, 18 Feb 2013

I discovered Varo on Amazon whilst browsing for Leonora Carrington prints and had to have a print of one of Varo's enigmatic paintings. I don't how it corresponds to the original in size or whether there has been cropping, but the print is good quality on its own terms. The seller (World of Art) has a policy of packaging being paid once over for a multiple order which I gladly took advantage of and they even threw in an additional third print of another Varo painting! I am very glad to have discovered this Spanish artist here whilst browsing and thanks for the nicely packaged, quality prints. I plan to buy from this seller again in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Goldfinch small is beautiful, 18 Feb 2013

The Goldfinch by Carel Fabritius. I am glad that someone is selling an affordable and good quality print of a little masterpiece like this. The seller also threw in an additional complimentary print of another painting that happened to be on a wish list. My only reservation: it is slightly cropped vertically from the original, but not so it ruins it. There must be more room for people selling prints of lesser known paintings like this one by Fabritius. Thank you Red Rat, I will likely buy from you again.
