Wild Tigers I Have KnownTalking about weird movie – you would hardly be able to find one weirdest then Wild Tigers I have Known. I just finish watching it and honestly can say that I had a bit of trouble understanding it – and yet at the same time I feel a bit down because of it. At the same time I tried to watch it several times – but something always happened – lost of interest or something else . This does not means that the movie is bad – its just a bit freak. May be it was the plot – may be it was the soundtrack…

In one of the scenes an Afro- Amrican woman sings a really calm song while Logan ( the main character) is relaxing in his bed – the song was so calm and at place that I almost fell to sleep myself. The whole soundtrack as the movie itself is kind of strange.

Logan is an thirteen years old boy who attends a Junior High School – he is lonely and feels different. He is by himself a lot and dreams … day dreams so much that in one of the scenes his mother accused him for being constantly off in another world. But he has one friend – another boy who seem to be nerdy and different as well. They go together through all the teenage talks and thoughts. But then one day Logan meets what seems to be the school rebel – and he develops a crush on him. What follows is a weird mixture of feelings , questions , ignorance, bravery and dreams. Logan embarks on a journey towards his own identity…

No easy answers are provided in that movie -the plot revolves around a coming of age story- but there are many unclear things and unspoken ideas that the viewer is forced to think and decide what the film is really about. The cinematography of the movie is excellent – the lighting and colors leave a long lasting expression and makes the scenes really different and unique.There were few moments in which I noticed that the camera was shaking – like it would do in a home made production and yet another scenes in which the true professionalism of the operator can be really seen.Talking about abstract visual art-Wild Tiger I have known is just that.

  1. I got two copies of this film in my possesion. One lasts 1:38 minutes and the other 1:21 minutes. The first one contains more scenes, and also the chronological is different from the other version. Also the soundtrack. I don’t find about this anything on the internet. However, it seems to me that there has been some re-editing process and some overtly clues to being gay has been excluded. The review above is bases upon the shorter version.
