Avenge But One of My Two Eyes
Shot in the Occupied Territories by Israeli director Avi Mograbi, this controversial documentary film draws parallels between the Israeli - Palestinian situation today and the enduring myths of Samson and Masada. Mograbi offers a powerful, at times chilling, lament of the continuing cycles of violence rooted in the past and threatening to engulf everyone's future. With the roots of so much real-world conflict left unexamined by today's restless media, this film reminds us just how vital filmmakers like Avi Mograbi are. Documentary today is rarely immersed in questions of this magnitude - or tackles them with the level of eloquence shown here by Mograbi. An exceptional and challenging film.

Poor Spike Lee... still angry with the white man... or is it more a case of him being angry that race relations have improved and his voice is a faint echo of the past? Either way, he's lost his mojo... BIG TIME! When Clint Eastwood's Flags Of Our Fathers was released, Lee waged a war against Eastwood and created controversy by accusing Eastwood of being racist and not portraying WWII in an accurate light. He wanted to see more black people on screen and naturally Eastwood laughed at him and ridiculed him back to the boroughs. So Lee's retaliation was the 3 hour "Miracle At St Anna". A steaming pile of hypocrisy and boredom. I genuinely LOL'd out loud at the very first scene which takes place in the mid 80s. An old black man watches a John Wayne film with a look of anger on his face... these words mumble out of his mouth "we fought in this war too!". And so begins Spike Lee's ENTIRELY fictional depiction of events that didn't actually happen. Based on a novel who's author openly admits it to be a work of fiction. Anyhow, to offer some fairness to the film I admit that I stopped watching at the 30 minute mark. I couldn't take any more and so I can't speak for the rest of it. What I saw was a contrived, cliched and pretentious mess. The screenplay is atrocious and the acting ain't much better. Even the likes of John Tuturro and Joseph Gordon-Levitt give cartooned film-noir performances as investigative journalists in the 1980s, investigating a crime that links for the "Miracle At At Anna". So a massive yawn and "fuck you" to Spike Lee. He needs to make more non-political stuff like Inside Man... thankfully his next film "Red Hook Summer" does look good and it seems to ditch the preach-card.... but we'll see about that.

(kr) wrote: The stylistics of theatre have seldom worked so well, at so bold a stroke. Brilliant blocking and use of light, strong performances, and a good story make it an all-around gem, albeit one of slightly different (yet, for me, welcomed) execution.
(nl) wrote: This is in my opinion, one of the classic 'Hammer' films. Almost the entire film takes place at night on full moons, which gives the film an added frisson of suspense.In 1905, somewhere in Europe Megara (one of the three gorgons from Greek mythology) is terrorising a village by picking off the locals on the night of the full moon and turning them to stone. Peter Cushing plays the local Doctor, who covers up these supernatural deaths by issuing false death certificates. The Chief of Police (Patrick Troughton) motivated by fear is also covering up the truth. After two of his friends are petrified Christopher Lee turns up to investigate, and its finally by his hand(in the manner of Perseus)that Megara is beheaded.For anyone who's a fan of 'Hammer' films or who likes a well made horror film without the buckets of blood that modern horror films are drenched in, this one's for you! 4 1/2 Stars 7-24-13
(us) wrote: This was a good early melodrama--the first of Ratoff's films I have seen (at least to my knowledge) and American films starring Ingrid Bergman, one of my favourite actresses (three earlier Swedish films she's in, that I found in an inexpensive boxed set by Kino Lorber, is delightful). This boasted a strong supporting cast too, as Bergman's Emilie does everything she can to provide support for the family she loves working for so dearly.It was short and sweet, and is good value for the cinephile if you like the 30's-and-40's style of filmmaking, and enjoy melodramas. Other fine directors who are great at this style are John Stahl, Douglas Sirk, and, more recently, Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Todd Haynes.At this stage of her career, Bergman isn't as fun to watch, at least for me, as similar actresses of her era, such as Bette Davis, Greta Garbo or Joan Crawford. I prefer Bergman's work after she risked everything to marry Roberto Rossellini. I believe the great difficulties she had to endure gave her a much deeper palette of possible behaviours for her to choose from. I significantly feel that if a thespian can survive trauma, it's the best thing in the world for their craft. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger--and I would definitely posit it makes one a much better actor as well.
