(ca) wrote: This is the "true story" behind the recent movie "Black Mass." Whitey Bulger operated an exceptionally brutal and oppressive organized crime operation in South Boston. When the federal government was focused on bringing down "the Mafia", the Italian mob, Bulger evaded scrutiny in part because his Irish mob just wasn't the flavor of the day.However, the allegations presented go well beyond that, and are what makes this story compelling. Once Bulger was arrested and brought to trial, there was little question that he was guilty of the crimes he was charged with - including personally murdering (I think dozens of) people, including many ordinary "civilians." However, the government wanted to expose claims that he had ratted out his criminal associates in return for immunity, while his own claim was that he was left alone because he bought them off, and would NEVER rate someone out. A real mystery emerges regarding the details of who in the FBI was allowing Bulger to murder and extort with total immunity, and why. Representatives for the FBI do their best to present evidence that Bulger was a rat, with extensive relationships, while the filmmakers emphasize the alternative story - that the entire operation in the DOJ was corrupt, and that whistleblowers were sidelined - all to protect a serial murderer.

MAGNIFICENT PRESENCE has a resourceful collection of fodder, such as romance, haunted house, ghost retribution, gay-transvestite subculture, war-time friction, light comedy and so on, two dozens of characters at hand to deploy with, but the film never quite find its centre of gravity, it leaves many loose ends which frustratingly no one minds to care. But eventually it can pass on as a moderate piece of work thanks to Elio Germano, this promising leading man in the recent Italian film scene, is the worthy saviour, he has won BEST ACTOR in Cannes 2010 for LA NOSTRA VITA (tied with Javier Bardem for BIUTIFUL). Elio owns the entire film, injecting a quirky laid-back energy into his character while grappling with heterogeneous accidents and happenings around him (an eerie transvestite/transexual sweatshop with an obese kingpin is the wackiest among them all), his innocuous look and infantile personality renders the film a whiff of fairytale evocation. Anna Proclemer, a veteran Italian actress in her late 80s, takes on a key role which will solve all the mystery, has successfully exuded a fierce body of work in her limited stint. Otherwise, all the other supporting roles are more or less underdeveloped (including an ever-so-graceful Margherita Buy and a scene-stealer Mauro Coruzzi, a middle-aged transvestite). I have watched quite a lot films from Ozpetek (arguably he is my favourite current Italian director though he is Turkish), the best ones are LOOSE CANNONS (2010, 8/10), SATURN IN OPPOSITION (2007, 8/10), FACING WINDOWS (2003, 8/10) and THE IGNORANT FAIRIES (2001, 8/10), MAGNIFICENT PRESENCE by comparison, has to degrade itself as a less achiever, but against all odds, Elio Germano and Anna Proclemer are the newcomers on my top 10 list this year (BEST LEADING ACTOR, BEST S. ACTRESS).

The story segment, complete with meaningless plot, mumblecore aesthetics and laughable ending, is horrible. I admire Bruce McDonald's desire to a make a concert movie something more than just concert footage, but next time he attempts to make a music movie, he should try adding a story that's interesting and characters to care about.

(ru) wrote: Bunker Hill Military Academy has just concluded another school year. Cadet Brian Moreland (Timothy Hutton), an academic junior, meets privately with the academy commandant, retired Brigadier General Harlan Bache (George C. Scott). Bache promotes Moreland to Cadet Major, the paramount rank at BHMA. Bache also reflects on the time when he was a West Point cadet (Moreland's intended college), as well as a graduate of BHMA prior to that, and how he dreads civilian life with his forthcoming retirement. Moreland is congratulated by several good friends: Cadet Captains David Shawn (Tom Cruise) and Alex Dwyer (Sean Penn), as well as Cadet Lieutenant Edward West (Evan Handler). Following the ceremonies, General Bache announces that BHMA's board of trustees is selling the school to real estate developers; however, they will remain open for one more year in order to allow the seniors to graduate and give the underclassmen time to apply to other schools. The delay gives many cadets hope that BHMA - which many of them consider home - can be saved. Bache also expresses his hope that the institute can be saved, as he wryly remarks to Moreland "We are here, and the condos are not". The graduation ceremony is also honored with a ball that evening. Outside the gates, a brawl erupts when several "townies" harass the cadets, which escalates into one local actually assaulting a sentry. General Bache sees this and tries to play peacemaker by breaking up the fighting boys, however his service pistol is seized by one of the townies. During their scuffle, the weapon discharges - killing one of the townies. Although the magazine was removed, a round was still in the chamber. Bache is arrested and has charges prepared against him for manslaughter. However, the trauma of the event combined with the arrest triggered a heart attack which results in Bache's hospitalization in critical condition. The board of trustees closes BHMA immediately. Moreland meets with the officers of the cadet corps. Since Bache is ill, they take control of Bunker Hill. The Dean of Students arrives with the local Sheriff to empty the armory. They find the weapons in the hands of an armed cadre led by Major Moreland... who demands to meet with General Bache, as well as the trustees so that BHMA will be kept open. The Dean and Sheriff are escorted off the campus by armed cadets, who secure the perimeter. The cadets are soon confronted by the real military and the tension between the cadets and the military forces outside Bunker Hill Military Academy is slowly built up..."Taps" shows us how promising Timothy Hutton, Tom Cruise and Sean Penn were as actors already in 1981 and its no wonder all three has had long and still ongoing careers. The storyline is based on how theory can sound convincing in the classroom, while in practice its something else, but also how young minds can easily be manipulated and altered by conflicting ideals of what honour and valour means and how far you will go in your conviction. "Taps" is also a comment on the armed services and the consequences you might suffer while in action. Theres no glory or honour in death. The film has a touch of a "documentary" feeling and Hutton, Penn and Cruise are convincing in their performances. Yes, "Taps" feels a bit "80s" today when re-seeing it and the film is a bit stretched and not fully dynamic, but the main thought of it is still current and will most likely continue to be so.
