jon and i saw 'let the right one in' the other night. very interesting. i'm not a big movie 'connoisseur' but i can recognize when a movie is something more, something a bit special. the colours in this film struck me the most (ofcourse- always looking for appealing colour palettes), along with the story. creepy but sweet in a way, with some humour. it removes the overblown 'fantasy' from typical vampire stories (i'm looking at you van helsing) and gives the vampire (in this case, twelve year old eli) a believable human personality, struggling with the problems being a vampire entails, making the premise feel more real.
