(mx) wrote: This film should be shown to those who are interested in doctor assisted suicide, as "Tokyo Sonata" is a film that barely escapes above its depressing charm. As soon as you think it could get better, it gets worse. While establishing tension well in a family dynamic, the film falls flat in its conclusion with no absolute resolution. The worst part is the child prodigy at piano who stumbles across the keys in an unconvincing performance at the end playing "Moonlight Sonata". It's a weak send off to an overall weak film that will waste most peoples' time.
(ru) wrote: I loved this film. It had a strong anti-war message and delivered some fine, nuanced acting all around. Not many films set in small Japanese villages during WW2 as a backdrop are shown internationally, and this is an important one I believe. It showed you the dangers of speaking out against the war in Japan at a time when nationalistic superiority was being instilled in the hearts and minds of the masses, and the utter stupidity of being branded a traitor to one's country if one was to do so ("thought criminal"). It's the performances and struggles of the mother and the student of her wrongfully imprisoned husband that really made this film so great. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has an interest in some WW2 history shown through the lenses of a small Japanese town.

(gb) wrote: This movie was adapted from a play, and the script seems a little play-like, with its somewhat clunky and obvious flow, where you realize immediately that every line or element of a scene is as symbolic as it is personal. Still, it doesn't employ the heavy drama of most movies about race, despite the nature of the events that set the plot in motion. There's no browbeating or guilt-making that most can only relate to in a shallow and abstract way, unless it's being injected to point out how hypocritical such approaches can be - the "campus forum on race" for instance. Instead, there is a brave and uncomfortable, but ultimately more effective and healing, examination of everyday racism, the kind that might manifest as a stray thought or feeling when you're riding on a subway in the city. Its about the everyday, mundane reality of being one of a few and not knowing how to connect with others, or if you should be trying to. Its about the realities of trying to change society and the limitations that we experience when we do. Its about mixing up people with history and symbolism. We do the things we talk about being wrong, and no one has the right answer. All sides of the issue come out in surprising ways, and we're left with the uncomfortable realization that not everything can be worked out, but we keep trying. We're all as mixed up and imperfect as the other. The characters that are aware of their own struggles, and bravely share them, aren't heroic - they're human. The others are mere stereotypes with big mouths and little ears. Sarah Jessica Parker's character, in particular, walks convincingly into the minefield of racism in the "liberal shadow," the dark side of a person trying to help another person from a different cultural mileau. A film critic once panned her character in 'sex in the city' for being shallow and socially oblivious. She should watch this movie and see if her opinion of the actor's work doesn't change.

(mx) wrote: John Woo's film is delightfully over-the-top, and nudges Hong Kong filmmaking in a gritter, more violent direction.
(ca) wrote: (Sorry for my bad english) Id like to see this piece of work in a museum, next to other paintings, surreal videos or sculptures. Because the disapprobation of this film begins when you see at this for more that twenty minutes straight. The vision of Merhige is as hard to follow as the movie itself, but its so awkwardly tight you need to be careful not to get over with this so easily.
(es) wrote: Mysoginist, racist, vicious and bloody, bloody funny! One of the very first buddy cop movies (if not the first) With a splendid cast, Arkin is a joy, Caan displaying a very surprising wit. Try and get the uncut version if you can. Spawned a short lived US sitcom
(au) wrote: This very English post-war film (with a weak ending) makes me wonder if the bank heist film/fantasy is really a quasi-fascist pseudo-anti-capitalist fantasy. Or in other words, they're not against banks, money, private property, capitalism per se, but rather their lack of control thereof, their being subject to the control thereof, their exclusion from the capitalist ruling class. Compare with Fight Club or The Wild Bunch.
(mx) wrote: Green Mansions is pretty much considered to be one of the all-time worst films Audrey Hepburn ever appeared in...but I adore Green Mansions. It's one of the weirdest, most lurid, beautiful, oddly compelling messes I've ever seen. It's chock-full of many interesting ideas and I loved the blend of romance, fantasy, and adventure even if the ideas didn't always come together as planned. I fell in love with this strange film and I was certainly never bored even during the moments that are admittedly flawed. It's so deliciously weird and surreal that I fell in love with it in all its glorious weirdness. I don't care that this film is considered terrible, I love it and it's now among my favorite romance films even though it probably shouldn't be. If you love weird films, you must see Green Mansions because it is unlike anything you will ever see.

No one has ever known we were among you... until now.''Say, remember that I told you about that I hate box office failures? Well, here I am going to tell you about the cult classic Highlander. Now the sword fights really sure reminds me of the King Arthur stories. Christopher Lambert really does fit for the role although he's French. The movie was filmed at Scotland and New York City. I actually thought from Christopher Lambert's character's past was filmed at Cornwall but it's not, it's actually filmed in Scotland. The first fight scene where Macleod fights the immortal, that scene is awesome. I think the beheading scenes really does the sword fight scenes where the characters fight the enemies and then cut their heads after saying the only line ''There can be only one.'' The only best thing about the movie that really impressed me is Kurgan played by Mr Krabs. (Chuckles) Now don't let that bother you. I said Mr Krabs because Mr Krabs is played by Clancy Brown. I think he always plays bad guy roles like Uka Uka from the Crash Bandicoot series, Baron Praxis from Jak 2 and the others. But in Spongebob Squarepants, the only villian who is in it is got to be Plankton, so I'm just putting it out there. So Kurgan is got to be one of my favorite baddies if not the best villian. He really does get a line that I really like are ''There can be only one.'', ''Hello, pretty.'' ''Another time, Macleod!'' and the famous line ''I have something to say! It's better to burn out than to fade away!'' Now this is the line that I have to show my teacher Simon and my friends from Drama Club where I have to say the line by turning around. It is awesome! Sean Connery has a small role in it though cause his character dies because of Kruger the Kurgan after Ramirez helps Conner Macleod out with the sword skills so he can defeat the Kurgan. The songs are by Queen. Queen is one of the greatful music band that ever exist in music history. Their songs are Princes of the Universe, Who Wants To Live Forever and Kind Of Magic. I even heard Christopher Lambert saying the tagline. ''Hey, It's a kind of magic.'' This is a very good film despite the box office bomb but it spawn the sequals and TV series. I'm not sure if I wanted to check out the sequals because I heard pretty bad things about them so I'm gonna end it there. So anyways, if anyone's a fan of Queen I would definitely listen to the songs, the soundtrack from Highlander and watch the film. Go watch it! It is a very underrated and really awesome cult classic! But if you lose your head, it's over.''Patience, Highlander You have done well. But it'll take time. You are generations being born and dying. You are at one with all living things. Each man's thoughts and dreams are yours to know. You have power beyond imagination. Use it well, my friend.''
