Its crazy that in our time of such instant gratification and accessibility to "discover" ability overnight, that such talents can go unrecognized for so long. Of course that's all due to the subject, and such privacy is also more and more rare to see in people. I wonder if Vivian knew that she could have made at least a decent living on her talent, and what stopped her. I'm such a shy persons myself that I can totally understand it, and yet not at the same time.

(us) wrote: A little different than I expected, But the film has its good parts, (Mainly its action) and its bad parts too, I wanted a little more from the film as it got a little disappointing at the end.

While on the surface it claims to be a sentimental piece about long lost friendships and the love of movies, it is a strong commentary on the ways that broken families change the lives of the people. It is sometimes overly sentimental, but it also has the self confidence to be sly, cleaver, and cruel. For Americans, don?t be intimidated by the fact that it is in Mandarin. As long as one it not put off by subtitles, it is very accessible. The important themes are universal, and the movie could have easily been set in small town America. It is an impressive first movie from Jiang Xiao. I hope to see more from her.

[b]The Woodsman[/b] :fresh: 7.5/10 Woodsman is part of a recent trend in movies to sympathise with a character that is generally hated by society. Downfall characterised Hitler as more than just a monstrous caricature while Monster and United States of Leland centred around murderers, whom you sympathsise with. You have to give Kevin Bacon much credit for taking on a role that could've potentially have been career suicide, after all, how do you make a character who is a child molestor human? This film is unique in that its the only film I can think of that portrays a pedophile as a person, rather than as a monster. The movie treads on thin ice throughout its length, alternating between moments of disgust and pathos, but overall it feels like an honest look at the struggles of a man with the most unnatural of desires. The ending seems a little abrupt though. [b]Life is Beautiful[/b] :fresh: 8/10 I've watched about half of this film before and never bothered to finish it, not because it wasn't good, but because I was busy at the time. At the time I had only seen the parts just before it gets really depressing, so I had no real idea how heartbreaking it would get later on. While the film is not an accurate portrayal of exactly what happened during the holocaust, and to its credit it never uses the title of "Based on a true story", its a brilliant allegory about perserverence, hope and optimism. The protagonist, Roberto's, optimism shines from the beginning to end, whether he be in a cosy Italian town or a drab concentration camp, and its infectious. ****SPOILER**** His death at the end is so shattering and blunt that it could make a grown man cry. ****END SPOILER**** All in all, I haven't felt this uplifted by a film since The Shawshank Redemption. [b]Fat Pizza[/b] :rotten: 3.5/10 In the tradition of Wog Boy, we get another crappy Aussie ethnic comedy. Fat Pizza is basically two or three jokes repeated ad nausem and plays like an extended episode. Just because you're being politically incorrect and deliberately trying to offend as many people as possible, doesn't mean you're making something humourous. I'm all for politically incorrect humour, in fact I follow the motto that "as long as its funny, its not racist," the trouble is there is no point or message to this humour, its politically incorrect for the sake of being so, and to make it worse its not even funny. No wonder the Australian film industry is in shambles.
