Jos K (it) wrote: I knew Maassen, like most people, as a stand-up comedian. It seems this gave him enough stage experience to be a convincing main character in a film with such a heavy plot. Lisa does a good job as well, them together is a solid cast. The thing that's brilliant about this movie, is the doubt it gives the viewer - right untill the end you're unsure about who's good and who's bad.

Jonathan A (ca) wrote: Coming-of-age story about an English boy contrasting his heroic fantasy life with the real drama of the WWII London blitz. Imaginative, funny, and compelling. The film really captivates and aptly depicts events of a cold, harsh reality through the eyes of a child. While some of the messages remain slightly ambiguous and ironic, they can easily be forgiven out of faithfulness to the central theme of innocence versus experience. The production does a wonderful job of transporting the viewer to 1940s London, and the performances are solid.

David A (us) wrote: Multiple Maniacs is not as chock-full of hilarity and depravity as John Waters' other 70's films, but two particular sequences are so over-the-top that they boost this film above 3 stars on their own merit. One of these sequences gives Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ a run for its money, and the other is easily the most random thing I have ever seen in a movie; it takes "what the fuck?!" to a whole new level.
Allan C (ca) wrote: Forgettable and familiar episodic amnesia story about James Garner losing his memory and bumping into various women who he may or may not have previously known. Although it's a pretty tired story, Garner is his usual charming self and 1960s Mad Men-looking New York is fun to see. The supporting cast of women is also solid, including Jean Simmons, Suzanne Pleshette, Katharine Ross, Angela Lansbury and look for Nichelle Nichols in a bit part as a dice player in a back room craps game.
Robyn M (mx) wrote: Make no mistake that unlike the previous film The Abandoned is polished, features stunning cinematography and a haunting score. What it doesn't have is any real entertainment value or true sense of logic. The film works best as horrifically beautiful sequences and hauntingly grotesque images. Some of which will be permanently burned into your psyche.

Ashley H (de) wrote: The English Teacher is a disappointing film. It is about an English teacher's life that is disrupted when a former student returns to her small town after failing as a playwright in New York. Julianne Moore and Greg Kinnear give terrible performances. The script is badly written. Craig Zisk did a horrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture.
Danny M (mx) wrote: Why do Hollywood insist on classifying light hearted dramas as Comedies? There is not one moment of delightful surprise in whole movie. This isn't a terrible movie, but calling it a Comedy misleads a person into thinking that there will be some stage of the movie where laughter is involved.
