The Angel is based on the story of real-life Egyptian billionaire turned spy Ashraf Marwan. A close advisor to President Anwar Sadat in time leading up the Yom Kippur War, Marwan fed info to Israel's Mossad and according to some believers, also worked as a double agent to Egypt. The Angel follows that line of belief, following Marwan's rise to becoming Sadat's trusted advisor and watching him play both sides in an effort to avoid all out war.
What's In The Box?
While some watchers are finding it impossible for people to compare Bird Box to A Quiet Place,it also has some shades of Blindness in it as well. I found Bird Box entertaining with some thrilling moments as well as a couple where you are likely to roll your eyes. Based on what I ahve been told, the book has a darker tone, and I would have preferred to see that version during my watch of it.
Shinjuku Triad Society
Takashi Miike is known to push the envelope throughout his ultraviolent portfolio, and early in his career he put that on display in Shinjuku Triad Society. I can tell you the story is about a crooked cop (Kippei Shina) obsessed with taking down a gangster (Tomoro Taguchi) and his cronies after they bring the cop's shifty attorney brother into their fold, but the plot is so thinly executed that it really doesn't need explaining.
