Forget 'Meet Dave'--'Atrapado en un Pirado' Looks Great!

July 28, 2008


I gave Eddie Murphy a lot of shit about how awful Meet Dave looked/surely was, but I have to say, it looks like he's redeemed himself with a starring role in this artistic foreign film, Atrapado en un Pirado. If I'm understanding the concept, Murphy's body is serving as a hollow vessel for smaller versions of himself--a metaphor for the ways in which man's physical form is nothing more than a shell driven by the conflicting emotions of the inner psyche, and how the fulfillment of our base desires our ultimately left in the delicate but powerful hands of womankind. Why can't America make movies like this?
