Assisted by his two brothers-in-crime, Carlito is on the fast track to becoming Spanish Harlem's ultimate kingpin.

This film doesn??t seem to have too many ideas it??s cot and dry simple. It??s a broad comedy with two people constantly running around the film in fat suits and getting into various shenanigans. The problem is there are no real jokes and in most scenes they just constantly overeat to ridiculous levels. It??s almost like the film is prejudice against the fat. ??The Birth Of the Nation?? For the obese. Just with a romantic comedy storyline thrown in. That reminds on of the Charlie Chaplin film ??City Lights?? The film is about a woman in love with a music star who is not recognized by him at a concert meeting. She was once the love of his life when she was skinnier. Now she is depressed she messes up a suicide attempt and meets a overweight neighbor who sells steak knives. They become friends she ends up working for him and is more successful. She decides to lose the weight so she can make her and the musician??s 10 year reunion. her friend is there to help her lose the weight. The film is an attempt to tell a different style of story but comes off more as a insult. I thought the film was going to be about telling the story of people with a weight problem and there lives and them falling in love. It??s almost like an addiction story only food is the drug and it??s legal and it??s just as addictive and harder to kick as you have to eat to live. Even though this film is short it feels very long which is never a good sign. In fact the only reason the movie doesn??t completely fail is that I??m a sucker for a good love story that is believable and involves sacrifice. I think those stories usually include characters who show character.

Thomas D (gb) wrote: Terrence Malick's are often something completely different from anything you'll experience at a movie theater, so I'm always interested in seeing the next thing he has up his sleeve. Knight of Cups continues his streak of highly experimental and undoubtedly polarizing filmmaking. I can't say it's the easiest to review, considering there really is no overarching story, so I'll instead opt to simply react to my time watching this ensemble piece. The main thing I took from the experience was that Malick wished to make something about the hypocritical underbelly of the Hollywood landscape. Christian Bale, who plays the main character (of sorts), is a Hollywood screen writer but we never truly get any sense that he works within the film business. Instead, it's his exploration or pilgrimage through the majestic world and sexual desires that come along with it. But really, that's about it. It's gorgeously shot by Emmanuel Lubezki, obviously, and Malick weaves through characters in an interestingly brisk fashion. I don't necessarily mean this in a critical way, but it may be a better watch without the unnecessary and strange narration or score. Instead, enjoy Lubezki's beautiful cinematography and several big name actor cameos as a background to whatever else you're doing. The story (or lack thereof) just didn't resonate with me. I much prefer Malick's earlier features with more polished performances and traditional script. But perhaps, that's just me. 40/100
