Hollywood shitness strikes again. Right at the finish line. All tidily packaged up in a Disney-style, steaming pile of yay.

A fantastic documentary made by musicians who tour the world talking to various philosophers and musicians....it's about saving the world, religion, sex, etc...greatly presented and accompanied by terrific world/fusion music (also a CD...included in a particular 250 GB hard drive, btw, first album in the lot). I am currently brainwashing everyone I know to watch this...and can't wait for their up-coming follow up doc later this year!

(de) wrote: No energy, feeling, commitment or even care by anyone involved in this movie is extremely evident....I'm looking at you Marlon Brando! He is so big in this movie he's kind of hard to miss. The Discovery is very boring at times and completely over the top at others, it's like it has no idea what it wants to do with itself. Benicio Del Toro does about as well as he can with the material hes been given, the same can go for Robert Davi who are both saving graces. By this time Brando didn't care at all and can you blame him? It's best to stay away from this.
(ca) wrote: A coming of age story with plenty of drama and real life scenarios but also one that has just enough humor in the right places to make it enjoyable. While the story itself is more true to life and not so perfect, that is what makes the film so wonderful and touching. The performances are amazing, especially that of Anton Glanzelius who gives a complex and amazingly real performance as a growing boy who is losing his mother, his lone provider and hero, and must learn to cope with it. He has an uncle who loves him very much who steps in and is the reason we are given hope and a sense of peace throughout and at the end of My Life as a Dog. Highly Recommended!
(jp) wrote: Roy Scheider plays a womanizing, pill-popping, and egotistical theater director who is a (very thinly) disguised version of co-writer/director Bob Fosse. All That Jazz follows this director as he battles to stage an elaborate musical while his declining health and atrophied relationships crumble around him. All That Jazz is often compared to Fellini's 8 1/2 since it features a self-destructive auteur wading through hallucinatory sequences as his doomed production steadily fails. It's not even remotely fair to compare All That Jazz to such a universally beloved classic, but it still comes out looking good thanks to its beautifully staged dance routines, daring story structure, and some impressive acting from a cast personally affected by Fosse's proclivities both on the stage and off.
