18 Meals

Food, glorious food! Some of the most sumptuous and involving films revolve around that most common of acts: eating. 18 MEALS is an omnibus film of criss-crossing stories divided into three segments; breakfast, lunch and dinner. Jorge Coira's debut feature, shot over nine days in Santiago de Compostela has enough tasty portions to please audiences. Amongst Coira's expansive ensemble are aging street musician Edu, a pair awaking from a one-night stand, a businessman visiting his closeted homosexual brother and a lonely housewife, Sol. Victor and Sol are two of 18 MEALS' most fascinating characters as they each hide something - his sexuality, her depression - from those around them. Best of all is Pedro Alsono as Vladimir, a local celebrity actor who makes a meal for a mystery woman who never arrives. Who hasn't gone to a lot of trouble to do something extra special for someone just to have it go unappreciated?

Silvia O (jp) wrote: "A book without a plot is BORING" says sreenwriter Jennifer Higgie via her character Rita. Well, I've got a bit of news for you darling, movies without a plot are also boring. There's really only Shirley Henderson to give the slightest bit of redeeming power to a movie like this.

George I (es) wrote: Tsui Hark's re-imagining of One Armed Swordsman that itself was an unofficial adaptation of a tiny bit of Louis Cha's second Condor Heroes novel. This one done either as a parody or maybe an acknowledgement of Wong Kar Wai (Ashes Of Time). It does become its own thing, and is unlike anything Tsui had done, before or since. It meanders a bit, but I like it much more now than I did about twenty years ago.

Chad T (kr) wrote: Gets props for 80s cheese, and after all, it's a parody of movies that were originally pretty corny, but mainly gets props from me because it has a surprise appearance by Fishbone playing "Jamaica Ska". Oh, and that kid with a switchblade who thinks he's "punk".

Louis M (ru) wrote: Great movie I don't no why but some people don't like this film deal with it it's part of the 1980's slasher cycle...

Christopher S (it) wrote: Sound remake of 'West of Zanzibar' doesn't quite live up to Tod Browning's masterpiece, but is still an entertaining jungle melodrama. The performances are way over the top - especially Walter Huston as the crippled warlord - and the plot is disjointed, but a feverish atmosphere and the blatant grotesqueness of the story keep it compelling.

Jennifer B (gb) wrote: A fantastic portrait of Adolf and Max Rothman as artists. Interesting insight into Adolf's struggle as an artist and how he was influenced towards his political agenda. Interesting study on ethics!!! Went into this movie not knowing anything about it and came out completely impressed.
