5.0 out of 5 stars Pascal Gregory looks like a cross between Mickey Rourke and Common ..., June 17, 2010

This review is from: Walled In (DVD)
disgusting but delicious like a naughty Christmas present. I loved this movie although I didn't expect to. I wasn't a fan of Mischa Barton having only seen her in Sixth Sense and tabloid photos but she turned in an interesting performance. Deborah Kara Unger I find to be mesmerizing in a Borg Queen way ever since Payback. She turned in a strong performance in the supporting role. The surprise appearance of Pascal Gregory looked even in caricature - magnetic. The color saturations hinted at the French touch of this film, not Pascal Gregory in the cast. This felt American if not universal. The evil is not supernatural or zombies but simply human awfulness and that's interesting. I highly recommend this movie but watch it with no expectations. Human beings are just awful. And if the Creole and Cajuns of New Orleans were agreeable, I'd want to move them into the giant indestructible Stackhouses that Malastrazza built. No more mold.

n.b. The design in the atrium is Hexagram 32 of the I-Ching to spare anyone else from looking it up:

The I Ching - Hexagram 32 Heng
I Ching Hexagram 32 - Heng
I Ching Hexagram: 32

Name: Heng.

Keyphrase: Constancy.

Formed By The Trigrams: Thunder over Wind.

General: True persistence is a process of constant renewal.

Love: To deepen your relationship you should adapt to changes around you.

Business: You will be rewarded for the effort you have put into your business ventures.

Personal: Focus on self-renewal and make sure you avoid inertia.

Overview: Heng is telling you that the only sure constant in life is change. When mistakes are made in a particular strategy the same mistake is often repeated. It does not show strength of character to formulate the same strategy (even if it has worked in the past). Rather it shows a weakness in your refusal to adapt and change. There will always be obstacles in life. Some may be often repeated. If a strategy that has worked several times in the past does not work now then change your strategy. It is also about inertia and complacency. You should always be focusing on self-renewal and not becoming complacent. Avoid stagnation.

Or as Bruce Lee said, "Be like water, my friend."
