Born Free (1966) is an Open Road Films Ltd./Columbia Pictures feature film starring Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers as Joy and George Adamson, a real-life couple who raised an orphaned lion cub to adulthood, and released her into the wilds of Kenya.
Married couple George Adamson and Joy Adamson have longed lived in northern Kenya for George's work as the senior game warden of the region. One of George's primary responsibilities is to deal with dangerous animals that may be chronically threatening to humans, livestock and/or crops. It is in this vein that George and his staff end up killing a man eating lion and its lioness, resulting in their three young female cubs being orphaned. Although difficult to begin, George and Joy are able to wean and take care of the three cubs, who they adopt as pets. But soon, they know they have to provide a more suitable environment for the cubs, namely sending them to Rotterdam Zoo... that is except for the smallest, who they have named Elsa and to who Joy in particular has become attached as the emotional fighter among the three. As Elsa grows into lioness maturity, George and Joy provide her with greater freedom away from their property, which may get her into trouble as a largely tame animal. ... .

(kr) wrote: One line summary: Endless betrayals mark this dark anti-procedural crime film.---------------------- Set in modern day London, UK. The issues are criminal activities versus police responses. Riley moves stolen diamonds. Joseph Corso is a crime boss, the 'Merchant' of London; Cutter is his henchman. Mark Corso (Joseph's son) seems to be running drugs, and doing them as well. Parker, Dixon, and Sands are on the New Scotland Yard/Metropolitan Police side of the issues. By squeezing Mark on cocaine possession, Parker and friends leverage his father Joseph into trapping Riley, who has been skirting Joseph's rules of order. The plans move forward, glacially. Joseph wants his son safe, well-treated, and preferably free; Parker wants Riley in jail and off the streets. At least that is the first story. Joseph sets up Riley to do 'one more job' that is a complicated heist that has to be done lightning fast. Parker gets Mark back to Joseph. Joseph tells Mark that he is retiring as the Merchant, but that succession is unlikely since Mark is a known addict. So, the stage is fully set. Given the complicated arrangements, something is bound to break down. Will the cops keep faith with Joseph on the deal? Will Joseph help Riley just enough to get him caught? Will Mark pull a wild card out? Will Riley diagnose the whole setup and get free of it? Where does the difference start between normal police procedure and straight up corruption?-----Scores----- Cinematography: 8/10 A bit too dark for me, but presumably done for effect. Focus and framing and the like were just fine. Sound: 8/10 The tension building from the background music was good, and the actors seemed to be miked OK. Acting: 6/10 Normally I like Byrne, Sewell, and Sands. They were fairly good here as well, although perhaps the material was not enough of a challenge for them. I like Toby Stephens as a comedian in television (Vexed) and film (Severance), but not so much as a dramatic actor. I kept expecting a flippant remark or seven together with a sneering smile. Terence Maynard was rather good, and I liked Leo Gregory's performance. Screenplay: 5/10 How does Riley get shot in the abdomen then can keep going with high-stress muscular maneuvers for a good continuous 20 minutes afterwards? This seems unlikely. The heist succeeding seemed unlikely. The wrong amount of valuables being in the vault open for inspection seemed ridiculous. Normal police discovery seemed to be almost absent. The ending (and much of the plot) reminded me of LA Confidential. This worked in the year in which LA Confidential was set, but not so much in 2013. Perhaps worst of all, the 84 minute play time felt like 130.

(br) wrote: Deadbeat at Dawn, which was actually filmed way back in 1987 and is considered a student film. Inspired by 80s action twats like Chuck Norris and the AIP biker movies of the 60s little did the young director realise that he was creating a cult comparable to Walter Hills The Warriors (1979). Essentially this is the story of 2 gangs of criminal drug taking lowlifes. Van Bebber is Goose leader of the Ravens they fight bitter turf wars with the Spiders. An early graveyard knife fight heralds the carnage to come. The Christ like statues look on disapprovingly. This is especially amusing with 30 odd hardened gang bangers running away from a solitary cop. Goose displays his martial arts prowess nunchucking a Spider in the head and taking his bike. His girlfriend Christie (Megan Murphy) has had enough. The Ravens decide behind his back to join forces with the Spiders, Goose tells them to shove the gang up their arse. However Spider Bonecrusher a man whose drug taking and philosophy on life are legendary is sent to brutally rape and murder Christie. She is beaten to death with golf clubs. Goose lays her to rest in the garbage crusher. He goes to visit dear old dad, a character as fucked up as they come. A paranoid waster like everyone else in the film, his only concern is that Goose has helped himself to his beer. After giving him money to replace it he discovers Daddy prefers spending it on Heroin jacking up between his toes. Goose deadbeat in the extreme resorts to stealing hooch from bums and consuming probably the longest lines of amphetamines in cinematic history. He is stopped from shooting himself in the head by his former gang members and beaten senseless by the 2 gangs who have now joined forces.They need him for the job. This is a heist on an armoured payroll truck and is executed with military precision. Goose has the job of taking out one of the armed guards. Hanging stories up a building by a rope he launches a throwing star. A direct hit in the back of the neck. The guards are slaughtered and the money is taken. Fucked up on drugs the Ravens celebrate before returning unarmed to the Spiders den to split up the money. Only Goose realises that it's a set up and goes in tooled up. He is the only survivor escaping with the money. Goose has to survive the sewer-ridden streets with the whole gang after him. In one scene pursued by a car Goose spectacularly vaults a bridge into the depths of a river below. The car ploughs into some road workers in a paradoxical nod to Death Race 2000. Goose arranges to meet Christie's younger sister he feels redemption could be at hand by giving her the money. First he has to deal with the Spiders, heavily outnumbered a huge battle commences. A gory martial arts fest with an amazing array of weaponry. Bonecrusher high on PCP is especially demanding. Finally a throwing star in his head, brains half bashed out his body is thrown over a bridge to be run over by a car. The final showdown between Goose and the leader of the Spiders is legendary. In front of Christie's screaming sister Goose is first driven into a wall and scraped raw, then he has his fingers bitten off spat on the pavement and is stabbed repeatedly. He literally rips his rivals throat out with his remaining digits before giving the money to the hysterical girl and dying in a pool of blood.Deadbeat and censorship. This is a truly remarkable film and unrelenting as far as the gore is concerned. Eyes are stabbed out, bullets explode in throats, and there is a brutal rape scene. Exploited Video had Deadbeat repackaged and ready to hit the streets in a fully uncut form. Commercial suicide that almost got them bankrupt. I for one am not surprised and never really expect to see Deadbeat legally available in this country. The weaponry for one thing would never get through our censors. Use of nunchuckas is still forbidden in movies. The Punisher, Enter The Dragon and even Kentucky Fried Movie have all scenes involving them removed. In closing if you get the chance track Deadbeat At Dawn down, it's nothing short of a masterpiece.
(nl) wrote: This film is so horrible it's hilarious. I don't think I've ever seen so many flubbed lines in one film. I don't know why they didn't re-shoot some scenes. Often it felt like we were watching the first rehearsal of an improved script. This film has the worst on-screen fighting I've ever seen in a movie, and it could possibly be the worst ever filmed! Most of the actors had absolutely no personality and seemed to be struggling to remember their lines. The camera work was terrible and seemed to often been filmed from too far away. The movie starts in the middle of a scene and ends when the lead character just says he has more work to do. This is just a terrible, terrible movie.

Interspersed in the action of the film Barabbas keeps wondering why he was spared instead of Christ and what that all means and does his life have any purpose? It's all dated now, but if you can let yourself get into the flow of it you will most likely enjoy watching it.

James Dean is a great screen presence and I can't imagine another actor portraying this character with such intensity and heart.
