In June 1953, two years after he was re-elected as Prime Minister Winston Churchill collapses following a dinner party at Downing Street. Diagnosed by his doctor Lord Moran as having a stroke there are fears that he may not survive and he is taken to his country home Chartwell. Publicly he is said to be suffering from exhaustion and the newspaper owners consent to printing the deception. As his children arrive to watch over him they feud over son Randolph's drinking and daughter Sarah's less than illustrious film career whilst Winston's wife Clemmie reflects on the loss of another daughter who died in infancy. The Cabinet is informed of events as Moran brings in plain-spoken Yorkshire nurse Millie Appleyard to look after the great man. With her help and his wife's devotion Churchill survives to address the Conservative party conference later in the year, before retiring as premier two years later, the country as a whole being unaware all along of Churchill's secret. .

Brandon S (au) wrote: The chemistry is there, and the cast is near flawless, but what separates this movie from a movie of the same rite like The Big Chill is the fact that this movie doesn't do much to help. The Big Chill spoke to the solace and love that's found in friendship in the midst of tragedy, but About Alex only uses suicide as a plot device to get all the characters in one location.The performances are stellar though. Specifically from the wildly talented Aubrey Plaza and Max Greenfeld, who has never been better.I also really appreciate Jess Zwick's direction, just not so much his script beyond moments of clever dialogue. He embraces the opportunity to allow chemistry between his actors without sacrificing the visual storytelling.Overall, it's a well-directed and very well-acted piece of filmmaking. It just brings up to many glaringly obvious comparisons to films like The Big Chill and St. Elmo's Fire, both of which handle the subject matter to much better avail. I enjoyed it, but not enough to make me want to recommend it to others.
Ola G (gb) wrote: A personal aide to the U.S. Ambassador in France, James Reese (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) has an enviable life in Paris and a beautiful French girlfriend, but his real passion is his side job as a low-level operative for the CIA. Reese wants to become a higher level agent with more responsibilities. As the result of a shortage of agents in France, he is assigned as a partner to secret agent Charlie Wax (John Travolta). Charlie is large on life, bald, bearded, foul-mouthed and eccentric. Charlie takes James immediately on a wild ride of murder and mayhem, through ethnic enclaves and terrorists. As bodies pile up, the purpose remains opaque to James...To be honest I have avoided "From Paris with Love" since it came out, due to three reasons. Travolta, Meyers and Besson. Three people I find it hard to cope with these days. But, lo and behold this is not that terrible despite the fact its a formula A action flick with the mark of Besson (still an enigma....). Its bangs for your bucks, both Meyers and Travota manages to be ok (yes, Travolta is still doing his roles in a terrible overdrive state...) here despite the storyline being nothing new under the sun and the storytelling lacking of both this and that. Yes, the "bad ass", witty and fast paced dialogue with oneliners feels tiring, but I reckon you just let is pass. This is not trying to be something else than an action comedy with some sort of current political agenda. Nothing more, nothing less.

Mike M (br) wrote: Rarely has such a stellar collection of talent been immersed in such a poor film. Chattahoochee - featuring the talents of Oldman; Hopper; Beatty and McDormand - suffers from poor, melodramatic direction; a confusing, incoherent narrative; clichd storytelling and - yes - even a poor musical score. Simply incompetent on so many levels, especially disappointing in that, at its heart, this based-on-a-true-story tale of a man fighting for reform inside a southern mental facility, deserved better. Think of a poor man's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, only without any of the good parts. Not worth the time, save for Oldman (who somehow valiantly soldiers through this stinker).
Sgt C (gb) wrote: (62%) A better than expected 1980's mid-budget action movie. Gary Busey really is more than good in this, as he is a decent actor that could and should have been a much bigger star. The movie is as simple as milk and cornflakes, but very watchable throughout, and the really silly elements (the super high-tech, James Bond style pick-up truck being the best) make the movie even more fun to watch, despite the tragic and quite dark things that happen on screen. Overall this is a largely forgotten little gem that's worth tracking down.
Chris L (gb) wrote: Even for a modern audience, this would offer enough surprises and peculiar subtext to remain consistently fascinating. The story is engrossing and unpredictable and all the main leads are incredibly compelling, with Stanwyck's strong, somewhat androgynous performance grounding everything. At times it's funny, other moments are menacing and bizarrely sexual. It's all quite amazing considering it was released in 1950.

Full of sleaze w/ sugar boobies, bi-sexual voyeurism, ass worship & masturbation w/ a cane you could say the Perkins is almost slumming it in this but when he turns into his split personality he's bravo. A pretty good trashy take on an old story
