(ca) wrote: A powerful drama, with such a torturous slow moving pace, it does reflect the tedious and straining issue at hand quite effectively. The capture of a Danish vessel and the aftermath of negotiations, violence and suffering is not overdone, yet retains its velocity as a drama and thriller on a personal level of survival, doubt and responsibility. The performances are refreshingly authentic and to the point - something that world cinema can do for you, if you are used to the blatant depiction of human conditions in the style of Hollywood. Especially Soren Malling is a great measuring stick of the film's underlying tension and the situation as a whole. By using the minimalist approach of contrasting light and darkness and respective auras of freedom and captivity, the director is able to conduct a minute symphony of nerve-wrecking pianissimo. Very recommended.

(ca) wrote: Some amazing views of life in the deep ocean which demeans itself by being a self-proclaimed prelude to "more exciting" space exploration. Too many wishy-washy semi-philosophical speeches and not enough science.
(mx) wrote: underrated film. good examination of everything. terrific acting/score. realistic-true spy action. daniel craig's pre-bond spy film
(nl) wrote: A disturbing drama that is memorable to everyone who see's it. "Mysterious Skin" is not for the squeamish
(ag) wrote: Good indie drama. Enjoyed the plot and the chemistry between the protagonists.
(ag) wrote: This screen depiction of the life of gay writer Reinaldo Arenas (1943-1990) lacks the gutsy convictions of its source material. Stylish cinematography and strong performances make this watchable, but more often than not, the story lacks punch.

(it) wrote: one of the greatest movies ever... really funny... everyone can relate to it in some way or another...
(it) wrote: Sir Richard Attenborough (RIP this year) provides a psychotic turn as an (impossibly) young gang leader in the seaside town of Brighton. First, he hunts and kills a newspaper reporter who told too much in the press (leading to a gang member's death). Then, in trying to create an alibi, he more or less dominates a young waitress by pretending he is in love with her to make sure she doesn't talk. Moody and with a good sense of place -- but also suspenseful (like a good detective story) when Hermione Baddeley's character gets on Pinkie's (Dickie's) trail and starts collecting evidence to turn over to the police. The ending -- some call it a "trick ending" -- is a surprise and I think I like it (everything pushes you to expect something different, which of course must eventually happen anyway). Graham Greene wrote the original novel and the screenplay here; Catholicism does play a role. A very good Brit noir.
