Walter M (de) wrote: In "Finding Bliss," Jody Balaban(Leelee Sobieski) graduates near the top of her class at NYU film school and has high expections for her career as a director in Hollywood. A year later, she has just been fired from another in a long string of low paying jobs and Garry Marshall will not return any of her phone calls. Things are looking up when Irene Fox(Kristen Johnston) offers her a job as an editor on a new film being directed by Jeff Drake(Matt Davis). The bad news is that it is for a porn studio which is especially awkward considering her past bad experiences with sex that went into her screenplay of "On the Virge." Once she thinks about it, she takes the job, figuring she can use its production facilities in secret to make her movie with her best friend Kathleen(Donnamarie Recco). Led by a pair of appealing lead performances, "Finding Bliss" is an amusing comedy that stumbles through some lazy and cliched jokes about the adult entertainment industry.(The table reading scene's sole reason for existence is apparently to get a rise out of Jody.) But instead of crudely insinuating that all Jody needs is to get laid, the movie takes the high road by saying that all that has to happen is for her to open her mind.(Speaking of surprises, Denise Richards actually gives a good performance.) The movie through Drake sees the possibilities of pornography which can be helped through a judicious use of editing. This is a place where many of these characters have landed at least temporarily while pursuing loftier dreams, which is true for so many in Hollywood. But at least none of the characters are making commercials.

Leo L (ca) wrote: Here's a fantastic movie that follows love, friendship, commitment, and family. Raj, Pooja, and Tina are three close friends. Their bond resulted from childhood, but for Raj its always been love for Tina. As young Raj and his family prepare to leave for the U.K., he promises to always love, and write to, Tina. As an endearing correspondence develops, he doesn't realize that it is Pooja that he is actually writing to. He comes home, and realizes that Tina isn't the same person that he loved for the past fifteen years. As realization sets, Tina has only abundant beauty and Pooja has eveything that he needs and desires. Great cast- Rani Mukherjee, Hrithik Roshan, Kareena Kapoor, and Uday Chopra. Definitely worth seeing!

Elias P (ag) wrote: Jim Carrey being in this movie is the only redeeming quality. Seuss is probably rolling in his grave because of this and The Cat In the Hat. The who's look scary because everyone of them has their upper lip removed and the message is squandered because of how the who's react when their presents are stolen. They react by shouting and blaming others when the real message is shown greatly in the cartoon. Spend your time watching that instead.

Ryan C (gb) wrote: 80s horror along the lines of The Evil Dead and A Nightmare on Elm Street. Entertaining but not as good as the two films I just mentioned.

Shawn W (kr) wrote: Box office bomb featuring Andy Kaufman and Bernadette Peters as two advanced robots who fall in love and escape a factory. Film short circuits on the laughs department. Wise cracking robot companion delivers no laughs despite the numerous attempts provided by the writers throughout. Apparently Kaufman went on David Letterman to apologize for this film, unsure if he was serious.

Blake P (ca) wrote: A cigarette in one hand with a drink in the other, Robert Harmon (John Cassavetes) is surrounded by a group of young women. With false smiles on their faces and eyes that long to be anywhere else, we're quick to realize that they're prostitutes. But Robert doesn't long for sex nor does he have a fixation on women with cheap makeup and a money-hungry disposition. He is so lonely that clothing himself in hookers and alcohol warms him from the cold, calculated exhibitions that plague his existence. In his glory days, he was a successful romance novelist. Womanizing was a hobby rather than a career. But the film shows him years later, completely washed up, selfish, and alone in his sprawling, wine glass covered mansion. "What is a good time?" he desperately asks one of his companions. He isn't making conversation to get to know her; it seems that he is so starved for happiness that he wonders if there's some new formula for euphoria that he simply isn't aware of. When she meekly replies that sex is a good time (she doesn't even seem to believe it herself), disappointment floods over Robert's eyes. The disappointment isn't the sweet, forgivable kind that a child faces when a field trip is canceled. It instead feels like someone is telling him that the person he loves most has died, and afterwards, he gets punched in the face. "Love Streams" was John Cassavetes' last film, and it's most certainly his most melancholy and reflective. Months before it was made, Cassavetes was informed that he was suffering from a terminal illness and had only six months to live. The sadness in his demeanor feels so true that Robert himself seems like a mutated autobiographical character. Robert's dying is not physical but emotional - his wonder years are far past him, and success and contentment have been replaced by crippling depression and booze. Mirroring Robert's numbness is his sister Sarah (Gena Rowlands). In the middle of a divorce and back from a recent stay at a mental institution, Sarah is miserable but can't admit it to herself. Her daughter despises her; her husband has had enough. A psychiatrist recommends she take a lover or visit another country; in one of the film's most brutally funny scenes, Sarah arrives at a French train station, 10+ bags in tow, begging a confused security guard to help her carry them to her destination. Rowlands is a severely underrated actress, one that carries an oddball charisma on her shoulders and a slightly screwball attitude. In "Love Streams," Rowlands looks like a faded Hollywood actress from the '50s; her blonde hair is curled and as big as her body, she wears glamorous outfits, even if she's dressing for no one, and she treats every situation as if she were a loony Bette Davis. Later in the film, Robert and Sarah collide with brute force; after her unsuccessful trip to Europe, she randomly shows up at his house. He treats her like she's a sort of God; she fills his hollow void and is finally given a chance to utilize her clinginess. "Love Streams" is about crazy, manic people, but Cassavetes makes it clear that they didn't begin as crazy people. Life turned them that way, whether it be through excessive living or a unrealistic expectation for love. The film is hard to sit through, as Cassavetes gives us no breathing room and clutters our eyes with an abundance of close-ups. Yet its unpredictability and stabbing laughs make it more than just a regular slice-of-life drama; some scenes are so bizarre that it makes the situation seem ever more realistic. After all, people don't always act like movie characters. The actors act as if there are no cameras in their midst, and that's one of the reasons "Love Streams" is so painful. You want there to be a happy-go-lucky resolution; you want Robert and Sarah to find a way to curb their wounds. But Cassavetes is too fickle for that. These aren't the kind of people who will commit suicide to escape their troubles. They're people that don't even realize how messed up they are; in that sense, they'll never be able to change. You don't leave "Love Streams" in love or with a romanticized notion of drama; you're stunted.

The process of the film must however have taken a lot of time, planning all the shots, the angles and engineering it all to fit together at the end, very nicely done.I think it was good and entertaining and I really don't know what they should have done more to make it more.
