(br) wrote: Wildly ambitious, HOUSE OF BOYS, bites off a bit more than it can chew but still displays an authority lacking in most films. Structured in 3 parts, the first 2 sections work beautifully, documenting the life of a young gay runaway and his entre into the HOUSE. The musical numbers in the second section are witty, sophisticated, and sexy. HOUSE puts larger budgeted films to shame with what achieves with so little. Talent is the key not money and HOUSE has it in spades. The last more serious 3rd section, focuses on the beginning of the AIDS crisis and thought it is blunt and honest, this last section feels a bit empty and stretched out. As if the filmmakers have nothing more to say than, look how horrible this is. To make up for this, there are sudden leaps that make no sense and undermine the severity of the work, but these quips still cannot diminish the impact of this overall wonderful and ambitious film.

(mx) wrote: Promises a little, fails to deliver even that.A weak script, some dodgy acting and dodgier action scenes together make the plot undigestible. I laughed quite a bit at the movie, but not with it. If I hadn't been watching with a group I would've switched it off.I'm watching it 21 years after its production and I understand it's dated a bit but there are superior movies in this genre both younger and older. Avoid catching this flight.

(it) wrote: MY OTHER TOP 10Parenthood is a job for life. It never ends. You don?t cross the finish line when you turn fifty, or your child turns 21. Once you?re a parent, you?re a parent for life. So, it?s something that shouldn?t be entered into lightly. I?m not a parent yet, so I only share my understanding of what it is from learning from my own parents and the other parents I know. So for a long time, this film has taught me what parenthood is all about. The movie ?Parenthood? is a perfect blend of drama and comedy, wrapped into about a two hour film and featuring a large ensemble cast; twelve major characters are portrayed, and many, supporting characters also figure. Names lend themselves, such as Steve Martin, Diane Wist, Rick Moranis, Martha Plimpton and Keanu Reeves! An interesting mix of actors to be sure, and they play characters you?ve seen them play before, and who you haven?t seen them play either. The characters drive this film, and all of them are connected through one large extended family. Steven Martin?s is cast as Gil Buckman, the central character; a devoted father of three who wants the best for his family. He makes an extra commitment to his nine year old son, who?s struggling with some emotional challenges. Then there?s Gil?s sister Helen. A single mum with two kids; one of them a rebellious, passionate and love-obsessed teenage girl; the other a juvenile son who only says three words to his mum a day. Continuing with the siblings are Susan, a successful, academic woman married to Nathan, a man consumed with the educational upbringing of his four year old daughter. And finally, there's Larry; the youngest of the four siblings and the black sheep of the family. He shows up early in the film after a long absence, with a child in tow, and appears to have changed from the young man who made all the mistakes and only asked for money. He appears to have changed, but has he?The story moves between all the characters quickly, and skilfully and entertainingly manages to spend just enough time with each of them so all of their stories are told. You might think with so many characters it would be a hard film to follow, and you?d have to watch the move several times to piece it all together. But that?s just not the case with ?Parenthood?. If you?re like me, the only reason you might watch it more than once is simply to relish in how terrific it is. The characters are familiar and relatable, but each of their experiences are unique, as they navigate their way through significant turning points in their life.Whether you are a parent, a child or somewhere in between, I believe everyone can relate to this movie. We can all identify ourselves in the characters on screen, which hold a place in all the generations we assume the position of sooner or later; father, mother, child, sister, brother and grandparent. Each of these roles is different, challenging and special in its own way. That?s what the movie portrays so well? that most of us are playing more than one of these roles at the one time, and without realising it, we move between each role because it?s our duty. And it?s one hell of a rollercoaster ride. Parenthood; rewarding, challenging, fulfilling, and a great movie!

(ru) wrote: Plausibly there shouldn't be as many 5-star Kurosawa films as there seem to be. However, High and Low (Heaven and Hell in the original Japanese) has to be included in the list. One of the handful of modern day films in his oeuvre, Tengoku to Jigoku is ripped from a police procedural by Ed McBain and is as exciting as any AK film gets. The film breaks roughly into three parts: 1) a serious drama in which businessman Toshiro Mifune tries to defend his way of making shoes by gaining control of the company, in direct conflict with other scheming executives and his disloyal assistant, but is suddenly faced with the fact that he might have to pay all of the necessary funds as ransom when his chauffeur's son is kidnaped in place of his own son; 2) a fast-paced investigation by the entire police force led by Inspector Tetsuya Nakadai that eventually frees the boy and identifies the killer; 3) the final trap and capture of the killer, Tsutomo Yamazaki (later Goro in Tampopo), who stalks the seedy underbelly of Yokohama in mirrored shades. Kurosawa stages it all in widescreen with some incredible compositions that make the most of the bigger canvass (including wide open landscapes as well as a bunch of cops cramming the screen). As always, viewers are encouraged to see the drama not only from an objective outside perspective but also from the point of view of other characters who are party to the action (in this case, we see the police view of the actions taken by Gondo the shoe executive as well as hearing what the public thinks). In Kurosawa, there is always an acknowledgement of the multiple ways of seeing reality. As it should be.

(fr) wrote: Excellent dark satire that is sentimental in its own way. Not one of his more popular movies because people didn't know what to make of it in the Dean Martin - Jerry Lewis era of comedy. Some of the jokes are so subtle you can easily miss them. Very clever photography and Jerry Mathers in a very bizarre children's role.
