Maymay A (nl) wrote: Sean Ellis must have fallen so deeply in love with Metro Manila to depict it the way he did in this film. It captured the harsh reality of the great big city, and it did so with a story that stirs a whirlwind of emotions. Everybody did a pretty good job. This film surely isn't easy to forget.

Paul D (ag) wrote: Poignant story of self-enlightenment and overcoming social stigma against the backdrop of a personal struggle with colonial period memories. Well shot and well directed.
Michael C (ag) wrote: Harris was absolutely brilliant in this movie. Kruger was decent, but was completely outshined by Harris. That is not surprising given the character difference, but she lacked the subtleties Harris delivered. Decent direction, good pace. Overall it is a very entertaining and touching film.
DC F (au) wrote: I am more of an older JCVD fan than I was when he was big in the 1980s. This movie had a good plot, some of the best camera work I could ever hope for and the action scenes were good as well, but between action, this film drags slowly on due to poor dialog delivery and not because of JCVD.

Zoran S (kr) wrote: Somewhat uneven but rich and fascinating early-ish film from Ingmar Bergman. It's set in a traveling sideshow/circus. Bergman's vision of the sideshow isn't the romanticized carnivalesque atmosphere that Chaplin or Fellini presented. Perhaps, it can be best described as a more sadistic variant of Tod Browning's circus world (such as in "The Unknown") where psycho-sexual humiliations and regressions are exposed and performed. Like a lot of Bergman films, it is morbidly grim and without hope. Oddly,though, there is a tinge of humor and compassion with which Bergman treats his characters and their profound loveless humiliations. That compassion means that the film never becomes an empty exercise in sadism. Bergman at least realizes that people may desire to love each other even if they are ultimately undone by that desire. Regression is born out of fear, sadness, and the profound need for security and not the conscious (or unconscious) wish to destroy each other. This is best expressed by the pathetic clown who narrates a dream at the end of the film, " I had a dream this afternoon while I slept off the booze. I dreamt that Alma came to me and said, 'Poor Frost, you look tired and sad. Wouldn't you like to rest a while?' Yes, I said. I'll make you [as] small as a little, unborn child, she said. You can climb into my womb and sleep in peace. So I did as she said and crept inside her womb, and I slept there so soundly and peacefully, rocked to sleep as if in a cradle. Then I got smaller and smaller, until at last I was just a tiny seed, and then I was gone." It's a wonderful moment that shows why Bergman, despite his pretentious follies, is preferable to most directors and screenwritersworking today: he never offers just perfunctory, empty cynicism. How dated he has become.

John E (es) wrote: I would have enjoyed this a lot more if the plot was fleshed out and cogent. Instead, it serves as a vehicle to move to multiple set pieces featuring the undeniably talented Judy Garland and Gene Kelly. I did enjoy the musical numbers and old-timey songs that were even old-timey when this movie came out. Not bad, but there are definitely far better musicals out there.

David L (ag) wrote: Peter Cushing plays a demonologist who collects any items pertaining to the occult, witchcraft, devil worship, etc... This desire for the bizarre leads to his encounter with the skull of none other than the Marquis de Sade himself. This film produced by Amicus has a lot going for it. It has a good story by Robert Bloch as the basis for the script, some fine acting from Peter Cushing in the lead and Patrick Wymark as a disreputable salesman, good character roles by George Coulouris, Patrick Magee, Nigel Green, Michael Gough, and particularly Christopher Lee, some imaginative direction from Freddie Francis, and some very stylish set pieces and costumes. Francis has limited special effects at his disposal, and this is a minor distraction as in one scene you can clearly see wires carrying the skull and a book in the air. Francis also gives in too long I think to some dream sequences and other "are they real or not real" happenings with his camera predominating over long periods of silence. It works well at first, but it does grow stale with repeated use. The story and acting, however, greatly enhance the film and make me give it an easy recommendation.
