Alexander the Great

Alexander the Great

Based on some historical events, the film gives a romanticized biography of Theodoros Kolokotronis, a Greek historical hero serving as a metaphor for Greece herself. Based on a circular view of history, the film presents conflicting ideologies - primitive communism, anarchism, chiefdom or kingdom, personality cult - and shows the institutions of property and power in a bad light.

One our and change that I will never get back. At least make a professional movie damnit. I've still yet to see a vampire movie worth a damn. It's like I was discussing with my friend, there are so many talented writers and actors in Hollywood that don't get shots and then you have amateurs making crap like this. And it's not just these guys, it's what gets made in general these days. Nothing but garbage. Why can't anyone make a horror movie that is not garbage? Why?!

You can count on companies like Troma and Full Moon Productions to spend the bulk of their budget on the cover art instead of, you know, lighting. I can't seem to comprehend how EVERY Full Moon movie, no matter the subject matter, is always impossibly dark. That might be to hide the poor camera work, the untalented and ugly, UGLY actors, or the laughably bad monster, but still. Back on track, I hate being misled by a movie's cover. "Purple Butterfly" would like you to think that it's an exciting action/drama featuring some semblance of an interesting plot, but that would be totally off-base. In reality, the movie's an impossibly frustrating 1920's period piece with a band of actors you really can't give a shit about. Yeah, as you can tell, what I thought the movie was going to be about, and what it really turned out to be, was very VERY different.[/font][font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]The movie stars Ziyi Zhang, "That Girl" from every operatic, over-the-top melodramatic Chinese Action/Drama of the past 5 years. From "Crouching Tiger" to "Hero" to "House of Flying Daggers", Ziyi's place in any movie means it's going to be groan-inducingly sappy with, god-willing, a few good actions scenes in it so critics can crow about it's "amazying physical feats" and "awesome action!" and how it "totally didn't suck donkey balls!" I don't know who these critics are, but I'm guessing most of them are busily sucking on Ang Lee's scrotum, just hoping against hope that he'll make "Crouching Tiger 2: Electric Boogaloo" and give them a reason to live again. Needless to say, especially after the debacle that was "House of Flying Sappy Melodrama", I should have steered clear of "Purple Butterfly" like roadkill. Instead, like a happy Alzheimer's patient, I willingly submitted myself to hours upon hours of confusion.[/font][font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]The film is supposed to be about a Chinese rebel [Ziyi], a member of an underground group called the "Purple Butterfly" who are bent on driving out the occupying Japanese forces. Her former lover, Japanese Nationalist Hidehiko Itami [Toru Nakamura] is now head of a secret police force bent on destroying the group. A series of delightful comic misunderstandings ensue! Not really, but I spent so much time struggling to figure out what the hell was going on that I didn't really pay that much attention to the proceedings. Half, well, more than half of the problem is the chaotic pacing. Partially produced in France, Director Ye Lou tries to ape French cinema by injecting the film with atmosphere, tension, and a deliberate pacing. But, just like any translation of French to Chinese to English, what comes out is just a garbled mess. The pacing is neither slow nor fast, but instead a horrible, god awful combination of the two, where the viewer is both bored and utterly detached from the precedings. The movie opens up well enough, using a subdued pallete and a truckload of brooding atmosphere accompanied with a minimal amount of dialogue. You feel the tension between the two lovers and the pain they feel about their looming seperation. And then.....he's gone, just like that, and the Director has decided that you've seen enough of those two for 30 minutes and decides, with no introduction, to introduce a slew of new characters to you. Let me rephrase that, because it's a little misleading. By "introduce" I mean "just throw them at you and hope you can keep up". It's kind of the "sink or float" of filmaking, and should never, EVER be attempted.[/font][font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]So while the movie continues to chug forward at full speed, you're stuck on first gear, still trying to understand who these people are and what they fuck they're fighting about. If you've ever watched an insufferably bad Art-House movie, then you're probably accustomed to that empty confusion you feel when the film takes a sudden left turn for no apparent reason, intent on leading you straight to Crazytown. And just like the band of the same name, it's always banal, uninteresting, and annoying.[/font][font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]While the concept has been used plenty of times, the old "former lovers thrown into confrontation", there's no reason it can't be pulled off. Pre-WWII is an interesting setting, especially from the Chinese viewpoint, one that's been mostly ignored when it comes to the entire World War 2 era. And the visuals are nice, though the director seems intent on filming some of the longest, most pointless scenes in film history, or at least since "Brown Bunny". If you cut off some of the fat, and surgically add it to other areas of the film, the movie might be a little more appealing [JUST LIKE IN REAL LIFE!], but as is it's simply and utter muddled, a movie that will leave you exasperated and depleted in a very non-sexy way. Oh, and it stars an actor named, brace yourself, BingBing Li. Now, I'm accustomed to Chinese names, but I bet her moniker is as confusing to the Chinese as Dweezil Zappa is to us.[/font]

Aaron L (ag) wrote: The first half of this movie is tremendous. Very raw and natural with scenes that make you smile as justice is being driven by a perfect Redford. However, once Brubaker decides to stop reforming and focuses solely on finding the dead bodies that are buried somewhere on the jail's property the movie becomes slow, and I could find myself carrying less and less about these missing bodies as the movie continued. The bodies that Brubaker loses his job over were killed years before Brubaker was invovled in the prison and he could have done much more good if he continued reforming the prison than he did with his search for the bodies. A disappointing turn in a movie that was utterly brilliant before it's obscure mission to find bodies.
