10 years of Flick Filosopher: nice doggie

Brotherhood of the Wolf is one of my favorite movies of the new century that nobody saw. From my review:

It’s an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink flick, is Brotherhood of the Wolf — director Christophe Gans and his coscreenwriter Stephane Cabel are clearly fans of American television, of Hollywood films, of Hong Kong martial arts, of classic pulp literature, and they throw a bit of it all into this horror-action-costume drama. And damn if it doesn’t work. Fabulously overblown — as all good action movies should be — and hauntingly silly, this is one movie not to miss if kick-ass kung-fu fights, and hellish beasts, and the-peasants-are-revolting, and extremely cool clothes worn by gorgeous people with delicious accents, and swordfights, and crossbows, and secret societies, and revenge are your cup of filmic tea. Cuz while there’s not a lot of money in revenge, it sure is fun as hell.
