(fr) wrote: I enjoyed this. I thought Cheadle is amazing. Ejiofor was great as well. It was very real, well done, and enjoyable. It got me emotional at parts that's for sure. Especially with the very difficult announcement to the world that Petey Greene had to make.
(ru) wrote: ...an erotic thriller about infidelity that may seem surreal on plotting but filled with truthful human aesthetics. It has a strong performance from Diane Lane and the build-up of scenes are evocative enough to convey its premise.

(us) wrote: Directed by Harold Ramis, who had broke into directing from writing with the double whammy of Caddyshack (1980) and National Lampoon's Vacation (1983), after writing and producing Ghostbusters (1984), he was offered this silly comedy which reunited Ramis with a lot of people he worked with on the Canadian sketch comedy Second City Television. Some jokes work, some just don't, but it's a massive ensemble here. Chicago fireman Jack Moniker (Robin Williams) gets injured on the job and uses his disability money to retire to the Carribean island of Saint Nicholas. There, along with struggling local reggae musician Ernest Reed (Jimmy Cliff), they make a holiday resort known as Club Paradise, with help from British governor Anthony Croyden Hayes (Peter O'Toole) and Jack's new girlfriend Phillipa Lloyd (Twiggy). On holiday at Club Paradise are Barry and Barry (Rick Moranis and Eugene Levy) and writer Terry Hamlin (Joanna Cassidy). There's trouble when Saint Nicholas' Prime Minister Solomon Gundy (Adolph Caesar) wants to shut Club Paradise down for a big resort, but Jack fights back. It's a very silly comedy, sort of like an 1980's version of those Ealing comedies where a small group of people fight back against authority figures. Williams somehow feels restrained in places, when he should have been let off the leash in a comedy like this, but it's the supporting cast that manage to do better.
(mx) wrote: The kind of movie that kicks you in the balls and doesn't care how much pain you are in. Sleazy as hell, but this is exploitation cinema that only an underground filmmaker could get away with. This movie presents life in New York City as it is, stripped of the Hollywood glamour. Forget the bright lights and don't bother looking for stars, this movie tells it like it is.
(es) wrote: I dug it till the end. Not sure what the moral of the story is. If a woman enjoys her sex life, she'll be assaulted, stalked, and ultimately murdered? Or maybe the moral is that there is no moral, just a tragic story. Not sure. Was interesting to see a time when Keaton and Gere looked like they could actually be together.
