Alleged is a romantic drama based on events occurring behind the scenes and outside the courtroom of the famous Scopes "Monkey Trial" of 1925. Charles Anderson, a talented young reporter, feels trapped working for his deceased father's weekly newspaper and living in a tiny town (Dayton, TN) in steep decline. Seeing the "Monkey Trial" as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to break into the journalistic big leagues, Charles manages to insert himself into the middle of the "Trial of the Century." Once in the midst of this staged event, however, he is torn between his love for the more principled Rose, his fiancée, and the escalating moral compromises that he is asked to make as the eager protégé of H.L. Mencken, America's most colorful and influential columnist.

They get there and their love starts to flicker again but after the first evening something very strange happens and some surreal, unexplainable shit goes down.This is a great little film, I guess you could call it a romantic comedy with some very low key sci-fi concepts thrown in. I won't spoil what happens but I thoroughly enjoyed this film and encourage you to watch it. It flies by at 92 minutes and the two leads are great together. I really enjoy watching Mark Duplass as I find the films and tv he is usually involved in are just left of centre and I do like weird and whacky films, and this film is a neat and interesting little comedy. Highly recommended.

MOhammad A (ru) wrote: Another great work of Panahi. How great he starts and finished his movies...he makes one thrilled when a movie is finished mostly because the opening and final scenes are in one line...just like many movies of David Lean. In Crimson Gold this feature has been done in a reall artistic and technical way.

Joe C (ru) wrote: Our favorite neurotic little elf bounced back from a series of stinkers and picked up a pair of Academy Award nominations for Crimes and Misdemeanors, which found him writing, directing, and starring alongside Martin Landau in a rather pensive drama that interweaves the stories of an adulterous ophthalmologist and a struggling filmmaker for whom love and romance are fraught with difficulty... and the perfect murder. It's Hitchcock meets Woody Allen, with all of Allen's trademarks; once again marrying the dissection of urban Manhattan's inhabitants with an arsenal of lampooning dialogue. Shifting the mood from dark to comedic to social satire with seamless aplomb, Crimes and Misdemeanors is a sophisticated, ambitious, dark meditation on murder and guilt that still manages to be uproariously funny.
Martin T (de) wrote: I'd forgotten how many songs were in this, but as I soon as I heard them again they were quite familiar. However, they're not that great and one longs instead for the classic Vince Guaraldi themes. I was really touched by this movie as a kid... now, not so much. It is awfully melancholy for children's fare, though. Pretty dull at times, and not exactly the trip down nostalgia lane that I'd hoped for, but it's okay.
Stephen G (us) wrote: WOW! This film is so refreshing. Entertaining all the way. Still holds up today as one of the great comedies. The stunts and imagination are just awesome. Very surprised how much i enjoyed this.
Daniel M (es) wrote: This is a fairly underrated film. You'd think it'd be the perfect film due to the fact that some of Hollywood's most talented shine here (or attempted to). De Niro can make virtually anything worth watching, and this film is no exception to the rule. It's a decent thriller with some nice twists, gets a little slow and strange at times, possibly even boring as some, if you're like me, expected more action, never really got it. But, the film is still in my opinion watchable merely for the dialogue between De Niro, and Norton.
