Two Films and A Horse Movie

Went out on the weekend to see the American remake of LET THE RIGHT ONE IN which had been retitled as LET ME IN.  The only real differences I saw between the Swedish film, and this American film was that the American version was gorier and far less subtle and had no subtitles.  If you’ve seen the Swedish film then you’ve seen the American film.  This was a “why did they bother?” situation.

Also, driving home I had a realization about the title that seems right to me.  HERE IS A SPOILER if you haven’t seen either film.

 

 

Let The Right One In doesn’t refer to the vampire, it refers to the boy she’s picking as her new protector and supplier.  She has to find someone with just the right amount of anger and alienation and starved for affection to become a killer for her.  By changing the title I think the American film undercut that really creepy thread.

 

This afternoon I went off to see SECRETARIAT with a friend.  I’m a sucker for horse movies, and this one was sweet and fun.  I remember watching Big Red’s breathtaking win in the Belmont Stakes, and they evoked that very well.  It was also really interesting getting the story behind the owner who was one very gutsy woman.

For me it was a reminder that only by taking risks can you excel and win.  So I’m going to go to bed now, and contemplate risk taking, and try to get to sleep before 1:00 a.m.
