A Skin Too Few: The Days of Nick Drake
A study, mostly chronological, of the life of Nick Drake (1948-1974). Gabrielle, his older sister, tells us of her brother's birth in Burma, childhood in Warwickshire, life at Cambridge and in London, then back to his parents' home in Tanworth. His parents describe his habits and personality. Two friends and the producer, arranger, sound engineer, and photographer for his three albums comment. His mother, a musician and poet, is an early influence. His quiet folk style made his one tour a disaster. His lack of success and gradual withdrawal end with his death at 26. Eleven of his recordings play on the soundtrack, usually as we see his room, a city, or the Warwickshire countryside.

(gb) wrote: Good looking men and beautiful women, decent acting, try to compensate for limited budget to flesh out the scenes. The actors did a good job trying make the the best with the constraints, but it didn't pull the movie through.
(it) wrote: A fascinating look at the Kerry '04 campaign: the mistakes made, and how the Republicans are willing to do anything to win.
(mx) wrote: Maintains a familiar concept from inferno, only trying to link more to the first four films and failing almost miserablely. Several twists and devices are confusing and slightly uninteresting ultimately ending sourly and unsatisfying
(us) wrote: A thorough and effective examination of the Johnson presidency, focusing on the escalating involvement in Vietnam that would eventually undue his administration. Very well written, the film always feels realistic, often re-creating scenes with verbatim historical transcripts. Michael Gambon's Lyndon Johnson is uncanny, he captures the overbearing, homespun demeanor he was known for, while also replicating his mannerisms perfectly. Overall, I would argue the film was far too kind to Johnson, conveying him as more of a victim of circumstance, who found himself in over his head and refusing to cut his losses, and whose otherwise lofty achievements (the mythical "Great Society" programs of dubious effectiveness) go unnoticed. Still, it was very effective in showing a conflicted man, reminding me almost of Oliver Stone's Nixon. Similarly, Alec Baldwin's McNamara was surprisingly authentic, showing a brilliant, though naive, man of cool demeanor. The running time is a bit bloated, but well worth it for history/political buffs.4/5 Stars
(br) wrote: Makes use of its one location and main character for a taut political drama. Sometimes it gets very melodramatic and over the top, but its not without its charms. Timothy Hutton has an amazing monologue in the middle and the ending will chill you to the bone. Inferior to the classic Fail-Safe, but still pretty good and stage play-like.
(kr) wrote: Well, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but More American Graffiti is nowhere near as good as the first one, and due to Lucas' minimal involvement, is something I like to consider non-canon. The film generally has a good sense of humor, though it does go over board quite frequently, and many moments in the film are just too outlandish to even be believable. More American Graffiti isn't a terrible movie, it's just not that good either.
(br) wrote: My favorite Peter Sellers movie. And with quite a pedigree. Written by Neil Simon, directed by Vittorio De Sica, music by Burt Bacharach, and a title song performed by The Hollies.

(br) wrote: A great movie based on the book even though the movie might use a slightly different lens than the book to look at the Faith topic. Whether it's a good or bad thing, it really depends on your expectation and how & what you want to focus on. I personally like the movie as everyone in this movie is just a plain 'normal' human being, including the pastor couple. They are not any holier than other church members. They made selfish mistakes too. Do you think God loves them lesser? No, not exactly. That's why God loves them so much and convicts them regarding their genuine faith with this incident. Only until then, they would just assume that they have a secure and unshakable faith that they believe they have. ;-)

(ag) wrote: I'm one of the rare people that actually enjoyed this movie. This movie felt so new. There is no other horror movie like this one. Although the scares were just recycled from other movies, this movie had its own suspense and terror with it. This movie also kept me entertained which is a really good sign. Overall the purge will get an A-.
(es) wrote: Most guys have seen and love Top Gun. It's a great 'man' movie. It's fueled with testosterone. Women can love this movie too. Not just because there's romance in the movie. What makes this so fun is the overabundance of style this movie has. It's mostly a drama mixed with some nicely filmed dog-fight scenes. But they do it with such style! This movie could probably never get made today, seeing how macho it is. But that's what drove it to becoming a hit classic! You can see how painstakingly it was put together. The director, actors, music, filming the action... Cruise was the best choice to play Maverick. He always gives it 100%, with such confidence and conviction. That's why he's a movie star. Top Gun is in my top 5 movies. It's a definitive blockbuster.
