For #66 of the #DLMChallenge #365moviesin365days on April 20th I watched: Brotherhood of the Wolf.
In one of the most random recommendations, my friend Michael let me borrow a favorite of his, and hey what do you know?
It’s pretty entertaining. I didn’t recognize many of the actors, except frequent Hollywood guest Vincent Cassel, but the main actor, Samuel Le Bihan looked like the love child of HHH and Jeremy Renner:
The movie was a great French film about a secret Brotherhood of Werewolves (yeah, I know, it sounds like I’m an idiot, but I have a hard time remembering much else). But this isn’t some cheap version of Underworld or something; this is a slow and methodical period piece that works its way up to the third act finale.
The one bit that bugs me though, and call me crazy, is that this is a period film. I’m not a big fan of historical realizations. I love future sci-fi, and fantastical presents, but the past isn’t my friend; at least not in film.
