I guess that could have also been a good name for a movie though a tad too long to sound chic for the young and mass ears today. So instead, they decided to call it in its better known name - The Black Dahlia.
I was introduced to Elizabeth Short or Beth Short as she's sometimes credited as, more than a month ago when I saw that Josh Hartnett was going to star in a new movie by the name of Black Dahlia. Oohh, sounds mysterious and sophisticated; the poster looks even better. Nothing at all related to the images that I would see of Beth after the murder in January 1947. It was anything but nice. In fact it was gruesome. The killer practically took the phrase "grining from ear to ear" a bit too far. But that was just a small part of how sadistic the murderer actually was. If you want more gruesome details, please visit the website yourself and read what you want. My blog is for mass reading.
Unfortunately, I'm only writing about this now as I live in Denmark at the moment and movies tend to take a long time before they reach our shores. Not sure why, but it sure sucks. So if you've watched this movie, please do add some comments and maybe a short review of what you think. Just remember to avoid spoilers. I love spoilers but my readers don't.
No, I obviously haven't watch this one either thanks to Denmark or whoever that decides which countries gets which movies first. But I'm definitely going to catch this in the cinema when it opens here (if it does). Not that the cantonese trilogy was such a "wow" film for me, but it would be interesting to see how the translation went - not just the language but the cultural aspects as well.
