(nl) wrote: Hokay, so when I first saw this movie, I LOVED it. Like, haven't-had-a-new-favorite-movie-in-a-long-time LOVED it. I thought it had the lewd humor of "Superbad," the zaniness of "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist," and the brain and heart of "Juno." But after two rewatches in the past seven years, I've gone from a rave 5-star rating to a fine-but-still-demoralizing 3-star rating. Could it be that I'm over my turn-of-the-century cinematic crushes on intellectual and romantic Jesse Eisenberg and/or withdrawn yet open-book Kristen Stewart? Could it be that in my young adulthood, I've grown jaded by the coolly aimless post-college bildungsroman? The soundtrack, production design, and park hijinx are as whimsically nostalgic as a deep-fried cornmeal-battered sausage on a stick, but my blind spot for the '80s renders this movie a drive down someone else's memory lane.

(de) wrote: Just ridiculous. Should never be shown again, hopelessly lost in its final act, when it abandons any pretense of intelligence and indulges in absurd. Probably why we never heard of Director Ann Turner. How relatively big names such as Sarandon and Neill got roped into this defies any logic.
(nl) wrote: I watched this movie, about a week ago, and WOW! I thought this was going to be another crappy (thanks to the awful review someone left about this film), meaningless romantic comedy, but I was completely wrong. This movie captures the true essence of a romantic comedy. It tells the story of a Colombian immigrant who ilegally married her friend to obtain her green card. After her "husband" betrays her and empties her bank account, steals all her belongings, she is found with nothing, ready to give up and move back to Colombia. After some comical events a wealthy couple, uncapable of having children, offer her $50,000 to become a surrogate mother. This story evolves into a touching film, that mixes love, immigration, surrogacy, adoption, and abuse, in a perfect way. I recommend this film to anyone.

(jp) wrote: salesman is a truly sad film. the maysles brothers used their approach of so called "cinema direct" to make the documentary and in its time was revolutionary to have no voice over leading the viewer to a certain conclusion. they let the images speak for themselves, but it still leads us to a particular conclusion. its a hard film to watch these bible salesmen use any tactics available to sell their product including guilt and coercion. yet they are still simply men trying to make a living.
(it) wrote: Extremely unconventional sociology study from first time feature director Maurice Pialat, who, with the help of producer Francois Truffaut, lays bare the workings of the foster care system. Pialat observes the transition of a ten year old boy (Michel Tarrazon, heartbreakingly realistic) from one foster family to another, his troublesome antics seemingly clashing with the kind, but frustrated parents who attend to him. The boy is a classic study in psychological regression; at times he's actively disobedient, and with friends he commits petty crimes with ease, but other times he's a genuine child, attentive to his foster parents and their stories, respectful of elders and cousins during a wedding reception. Unlike in "The 400 Blows", where Antoine's troubles seem to stem from lack of attention, our hero here is generally cared for, which makes his problems and behavior all the more confusing and frustrating. Pialat directs with a cinema verite attention to the scene, cutting from place to place with ellipses that never connects time in an easy manner, suggesting the disorienting nature in which foster children live as "temporary" sons and daughters. It's a difficult experience, and rarely rewarding, even to a patient audience, but for niche buffs interested in the immediate post New Wave crop of French directors, this is an important film.

(jp) wrote: With powerful performances, "Good Will Hunting" is a perfect example of excellent dialogue and compelling characters.A young janitor grew up with a troubled childhood and little to go to, but has the brains of a genius and the work effort of a teenager. One day, when he solves a seemingly impossible math problem, he finds himself under the mentorship of a few bright minds. Although he's got the potential to be basically anything he wants, his stubbornness and fears will push not only his mentors to the test, but himself.If anything, watch this movie for the performances. A young Matt Damon and Ben Affleck should be enough to attract most people, but watching Robin Williams in one of his best films makes you feel like you're truly in the presence of greatness. The performances are all so amazing and I actually didn't expect Matt Damon to be this good. He plays this troubled teen who has so much potential but is so damaged that he refuses to do anything about it. I love his character and he's so relatable in so many ways. Ben Affleck's role wasn't too big, but he did co-write the film, so applause to him. I had never really seen a ton of Robin William's performances and seeing him in live action felt very real and genuine. I wasn't as happy with the late introduction of his character, but he was stellar none the less. Stellan Skarsgard also had a great performance with his stand out moments, and even Minnie Driver had her moments late in the game. The screenplay was very well written in my opinion. It had a few stereotypes and predictable moments in there, and for the most part, it followed a fairly safe route. It did feel a little repetitive at times, as it felt like there were a lot of moments that followed the same dialogue structure and the biggest moments were fueled by purely dialogue. However, that's not always a bad thing, it just felt a little repetitive. It doesn't stray from the fact that I would replay certain scenes just for the monologues alone. This movie is a great character study and it was so intriguing to learn more about these characters. There are so many relatable aspects that actually brought tears to my eyes. I smiled, I was impressed, and I wanted to cry all in one film. That's always a positive. Now, I wasn't in love with this movie. To me, there was nothing extremely unique about this film that I haven't necessarily seen before, but this movie is the favorite film of someone very close to me. With that being said, I know I'll be able to watch this film and smile, while remembering all of the happiness and tears it brought to someone's life. This film will always be considered a classic and I'm proud to own it in my collection.In the end, I thoroughly enjoyed this film and although I didn't love it, it'll always hold a place in my heart for different reasons.
