Asdl T (kr) wrote: Well, it isn't Tarkovsky, ok, by any means. But, Edward Furlong looking like shit and all (namely: Olallo's -ironic?- showing of rather radiophonic/podcast narrative resources), I overall loved it...Guess it's just that I as well dig (poor) black humor and monological shitty fauxlosophy, alright.

Ben L (kr) wrote: I was part of this film two years ago and now it has finally been released nationally, on dvd, so I can see it. I wasn't in it but because two years had passed, I didn't mind. I could see the film for what it was rather then pretend to like it because I had to because I was in it. It's by no means a work of art or, indeed, a film that will stand by the greats in british film making but Peter Howitt (director/producer/writer/star) has clearly devoted a lot of his life to put Stuart Browne's book to the screen. Browne died in 1999 and Howitt has been in love with the book for all this time.Howitt loves messing with time in films (see sliding doors) and here he does it quite effectively. It can be a bit confusing at times, especially with the flashy photography in certain parts, but as a whole, it is a typical british film. Humour underline with tragedy. Don't expect to like the protagonist because he certainly won't like you.

Myles H (ca) wrote: utter gash. I don't often write reviews but sticking through this has ruined my evening. I loved Mesrine and was so looking forward to Vincent playing a larger than life criminal again, but he bumbles through an awkward first hour as an ex con cowtowing to a dull french office life, in a poorly fitting shirt and tie and sporting crappy tash and chops. the girl starts and remains dull and her character only gets out of second gear for about ten minutes.then there's the terrible suspended belief requirement as the lip reading starts and then kinda saves the day. but it's one implausibility upon another for the last 30 minutes.honestly watch Mesrine I and II. Avoid this, unless you like watching people from WHSmiths subliminate into a heist fantasy written by a teenager.

Arun N (fr) wrote: Like Pather Panchali,this is one of the best films i ve seen.Human bonding and loneliness are 2 of the many things dwelt upon in this movie.I am beginning to realize why Satyajit Ray is known as one of the best directors ever to grace the earth.The scene where young Appu( whose forced to work as a priest due to poverty)watching the other kids play when he was returning from work,is very moving.

Larry H (au) wrote: This is probably the one movie I most enjoyed waiting on growing up into a guy who could come of age and enjoy it far more than I ever could as a 5-year old. I thank EVERYONE for making this movie.

Daniel M (de) wrote: The Lion King is one of the best Disney films I had ever seen in my whole life. With its extraordinarily story delivering a message and morals about life lessons, spot-on voice-acting, beautiful animation, loveable and memorable characters and unforgettable music by Hans Zimmer, Elton John and Tim Rice. This is a must-watch for everyone else including Disney fans alike both old and new.
