This is really a pity when we know that the Gypsy culture - and more specifically the persecutions toward Romani people during World War II - is not very present in the Cinema. By choosing this subject, it is as if the film director Tony Gatlif was making a declaration of love to his own culture, but he is also presenting a part of the story which isn't well-known nowadays by a large part of the public. Many aspects of the Romani culture are presented in the movie : the music (the film was nominated at the Csar Awards for the award of the Best Music Written for a Film), the way of working blacksmithing, and their traditions. This last point is certainly the most important element of the movie.The Romani traditions represent the soul itself of the characters, and the obtacles that they have to overcome are really torturing themselves in their way to live. The Gypsy family is really a "free" one, and the members of the family can not live behind walls. That is the reason why the scene in the camp is so heartbreaking. The fact that, during this scene, the character of Taloche (played by James Thirre) is silently and sadly looking at the outside through the barbed wire while another gypsy is screaming like a litany "I want to be free" is really representative of this idea of heartbreaking. We have the same idea in another scene, when the character of the mayor is giving the Gypsy family a house to prevent them from being persecuted : in this scene, Taloche do not understand why they can not go back to their life on the road, and we can see all the despair in his eyes, especially when his own family has to force him to enter in the house, before closing the door behind him. The spectator himself can understand the sorrow of Taloche by looking at the scenes during this character express his desire of liberty. We can see it during the scene at the town hall, in which Taloche "free the water" by the fact of opening the faucet until the water is falling as a waterfall in the stairs. The scenes in which Taloche is dancing or running alone in the forest are also representatives of this desire of liberty, but during one of these scenes, Taloche discovers something that reminds us about the sad fate of the Romani people...Anyways, "Libert" is a very good movie, showing the reality of a part of our story, and with a strong philosophical message. A poignant film with great actors and that must be seen !

Spencer S (au) wrote: "Blue Like Jazz" has a lot going for it, especially because it caters to the demographic of confused religious people either in their twenties or thirties. In contemporary film, faith is rarely a theme that is visited without certain intermingling themes. Most of these films either broach leaving religion altogether and finding a new identity, or they remain schmaltzy and renew the character's faith. This film fits better into the second category, while also having an interesting setting, great supporting characters, and feels fresh for college students, especially those in small liberal arts campuses. The story comes from the book of the same name by Donald Miller, and is semi-autobiographical. It certainly feels that way, because there's raw emotion and private introspection into the thoughts of main character Don (Allman), who narrates the film. Don lives his entire life in Texas, going to a Baptist church and hanging out with friends from a local factory where he works. When he realizes that his mother is having an affair with his married youth pastor, he runs away to Portland to go to the infamously liberal Reed College. There he starts raising questions that religion doesn't always allow, and makes friends with several interesting characters, including a newly freed lesbian and the campus' Pope, who hates all religion and favors indecision. The film stays strong as Don starts to understand his own isolation and the reasons why he is rebelling against his faith, but eventually becomes a tangled mess. It's just trying to enclose so many ideas and so many competing storylines that it collapses in on itself. Don's own realizations about himself don't even culminate until the very end of the film, and we never learn what their impact is, and what it means for the character. We also have to deal with child abuse, alienation, and depression in a very short span of time, and though each theme is lighted upon, the film doesn't say much about them. SPOILERS: That and making the Pope into a victim of sexual abuse during confession was really biased and short sighted, which only feeds into the view that anti-theists already have. It felt more like a cheap ploy to wrap everything up than an actual ending, and for that, I find the most fault.
Thomas B (it) wrote: Grade - B-'Blue Valentine' may label itself as a love story, and whilst it technically is, don't go in expecting a sweet romance. Whilst the movie does suffer in terms of how the characters, in particular that of Cindy, keep changing their attitude towards people and the decisions they make, the performances are very good, as is the dialogue and direction. Certainly worth checking out.

Their is an abundance of needless soft-core porn which is indicative of a shitty C- movie. There is sooo much wrong in this movie that every five minutes or less I was pointing out something that was clearly wrong.DO NOT WATCH THIS GARBAGE.

Sadly for this horror film a severed hand of the Devil isn't the source of horror. No, the source of Horror is a devil worshiping cult running out of the basement of a doll shop. Bet you didn't see that one coming. THE PLOT: Sees an engaged man having trouble sleeping because his dreams are haunted by an attractive Bottle Blonde Woman. One day he comes across a doll shop with the image of the woman made into a doll. This discovery leads to the mystery woman, who just happens to be a member of the cult of Gamba& is very keen for the man to join the cult. So the logical thing to do is to join the cult, abandon his fiance & then end up regretting it. THOUGHTS: The ridiculous plot of an attractive blonde witch who is a member of a devil cult, just to go to the expense of making the engaged man join said cult is hilariously stupid. Decent acting, that silly plot and not much else make it worthy of a solid 50%. They don't make them like this anymore.................

Whereas the sequel is a lot more like the Blaxploitation we all know and love, BLACK CAESAR seems to have more integrity. It seems like it has more to say. Fred Williamson is the ultimate of male Blaxploitation anti-heroes, beating out Roundtree and Brown in my books. Perhaps what sets this film apart from the others of its kind is that we get to see Williamson(TM)s Tommy? as a young man, getting a taste for how and why, and who influenced him, on his way to the top. Often Blaxploitation films revolve solely around revenge, this is just an all out story about one man(TM)s greed and struggle to keep all that he has made his own. Additionally, it has a surprisingly downbeat ending which I wasn(TM)t expecting. Well worth visiting.
