(jp) wrote: Camera work sucks, storyline is poor & ridiculous gore. Points for the gorgeous Roxanne McKee.
(ca) wrote: The subject matter, people in recovery, is serious. The tone bounces back and forth between humorous and dramatic. The actors are great and they make the material real. Mark Ruffalo is fantastic, as always.
(fr) wrote: Thankfully, "Derek" has nothing to do with Derek Jeter.(Sorry, Mets fan.) Rather, it is an endearing documentary about Derek Jarman, an iconoclastic film director who challenged the status quo both politically and aesthetically, who died of AIDS related complications in 1994. Along with clips from his films and archival footage, the documentary mostly consists of a 1990 interview with Jarman which serves as a narration on his life and work, detailing the creative and political influences on his movies. After a chance meeting with Ken Russell, Jarman, an underground artist at the time, was hired to design the sets for "The Devils"(Now, there is a movie I have to see one of these days...) which turned out to be his introduction to making movies. His political involvement in movements against Thatcher and militancy for gay rights would inform even his historical films, especially "Edward II," with Jarman's signature use of anachronisms, leaving them unstuck in time and making them relevant for all times, especially the present day from which Her Timelessness Tilda Swinton recalls their collaborations and friendship.

That's okay, that's normal, that's just how smart the film is. Ugh, give me a freakin break! Only good thing about this?.....eh...Lucy Liu was hot! Not saying much though!
(ca) wrote: Shattered Glass is an incredibly realistic and fair portrait of Stephen Glass with (hard to believe I'm saying this) a masterful performance from Hayden Christensen. It will probably prove to be boring for some, but for those interested in journalism, Shattered Glass is a must-see.

(ca) wrote: I loved the part where he's like under the bed and he's talking about how nice it is. XD I also like when they're in the car and he's all smiling and then all the sudden the gun comes into play and his expression changes immediately. Good times. Good times.

(es) wrote: Since it's a remake of the 1934 film the tone, plot, and dramatic feel of this is quite unusual compared to Ozu's other late period films. Ozu takes more time to tell the same story and concentrates more on the atmosphere, which greatly benefits from Miyagawa' s beautiful work and the Nino Rota-like score, while the melodrama is more pronounced with sound.
(es) wrote: George Orwells, who's probably most famous for his science fiction novel 1984, also wrote a children's novel, named Animal Farm, which is the story of how the farm animals rebels against the drunk and violent farmer. But after the revolution, a pig named Napoleon have great influence within the pig circle. Who also raise an army of shepherd dogs which he uses to execute a coup d'etat, and establish a far worse dictatorship than the farms previous owner.There is pretty obvious comparisons to the russian revolution and Joseph Stalin's terror regime. It show us practicably step by step the soviet history, all the terror, reforms, suppression and deprivation that Stalin regime stood for. So is this a propaganda film, or not? superficially it is, but it also give us the facts and the natural reaction to that. And not all the pigs are evil, there were even some who supported the other animals. Talking about the movie in general, it's very dark and sad, even more macabre than a Disney film, that is probably not suited for every ages. But why not use animals? We do test everything on them, so that means animals can represent people so children can understand politics. Thumbs up.
