In terms of narrative, it's the most videogame-y film I've ever seen. There's no traditional storyline, just a series of loosely connected attractions (from "The Cinema of Attractions") full of over the top action and absurdly hilarious one-liners and wisecracks. It doesn't even try to work as a conventional film and as a sequel it's great because here, "seriality" is conceptual. It is explicitly a Resident Evil movie about Resident Evil movies and also about videogames.

It's pure "cinema as spectacle" just like the very first movies were. This trend has obviously been present in Hollywood for a while (mostly in high concept blockbusters), Retribution only takes it to another level - or more precisely, follows it to its logical conclusion.


This review is a good read:

Breaking the Taboo was directed by Cosmo Feilding Mellen and Fernando Grostein Andrade, and is Narrated by Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman.

Featuring interviews with current and former presidents from around the world, such as Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, the film follows The Global Commission on Drug Policy on a mission to break the political taboo over the United States led War on Drugs and expose what it calls the biggest failure of global policy in the last 40 years.

A Sundog Pictures and Spray Filmes production.

Sci-Fi/Horror:
The Invisible Man (1933) (one of my absolute favourites. Claude Rains is fuckin brilliant in his role as Dr. Jack Griffin)
Psycho (1960)
The Birds (1963)
The Thing From Another World (1951)
The War of the Worlds (1953)

Film-noir:
The Maltese Falcon (1941)
Vertigo (1958)
North By Northwest (1959)
The Big Sleep (1946)
Double Indemnity (1944)
Out of the Past (1947)
Sorry, Wrong Number (1948)


and since you mentioned Fritz Lang, Metropolis (1927)

Gasper noe movies...

I stand alone
Irreversible
Enter the void

They're all incredibly depressing, and somewhat surreal. If you want to watch some truely seriously dark movies with a confronting sense of realism then they're great. The second two of those feature some dark menacing techno (proper techno, not ebm, not electro, not house) in some parts if you're into that as well.

Here's the hooker scene from I stand alone on youtube:
