Cultures of Resistance
In 2003, on the eve of the Iraq war, acclaimed director Iara Lee embarked on a journey to better understand a world increasingly embroiled in conflict and, as she saw it, heading for self-destruction. After several years, traveling over five continents, Iara encountered growing numbers of people who committed their lives to promoting change through the arts. This is their story. From IRAN, where graffiti and rap have become tools in fighting government repression, to BURMA, where monks acting in the tradition of Gandhi take on a dictatorship, to PALESTINIAN refugee camps in LEBANON, where photography, music, and film have given a voice to those rarely heard, CULTURES OF RESISTANCE explores how art and creativity can be ammunition in the battle for peace and justice.
Does each gesture really make a difference? Can music and dance be weapons of peace? In 2003, on the eve of the Iraq war, director Iara Lee embarked on a journey to better understand a ... . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

(it) wrote: This film is really beautifully shot. The acting is sometimes not completely great but sometimes very good and very believable. The script is sensitive and thought provoking though sometimes feels a little underdeveloped. I thought Ryan Vigilant's character was one of the more developed and his acting spot on for the most part (he is also the eye candy in the movie) and McWilliams performance is sometimes quite powerful. It is one of those films that feels a little flawed and imperfect but still gives you a lot more than so many more complete productions. Thought provoking.

(es) wrote: One of my favorite movies and a unique love story. Marlee Matlin remains the youngest winner of a best actress Oscar for this movie, an award that was richly deserved. Took of a half star for the constant oral translation of signing that got a little annoying. Would have been better with subtitles.
(it) wrote: King Kong is a really good classic and this film doesn't do anything to ruin it. This film respects its original material. The special effects are pretty good but questionable at times but other than that everything else is really good. I am willing to give this an A+
(de) wrote: Doctor Who's an 'international Judas', according to international heart-throb and long-time nemesis Carl, and he's got a point. The mad Doctor's invented a giant robot Kong to do his evil bidding, digging for the mysterious Element X in the Arctic or the Antarctic or somewhere. Meanwhile, the real Kong is awoken from his slumber by a hot blonde on the tropical island of Mondo, and it isn't long before he's swatting toy helicopters and beating up a ninja dinosaur with his big floppy arms. But wait! Having been kidnapped by Who and brainwashed with a giant hypnotic lampshade, Kong finds himself propping up the troubled mining operation before escaping and swimming to Tokyo, where Mecha-Kong's stropping out and looking for trouble. Kong, barely concealing a zipper running the entire length of his spine, is soon up to his old tricks atop the Tokyo Tower, where much swinging and monkey-on-robomonkey action ensues. In short, this is the best monkey-on-robomonkey action movie ever to come out of Japan in 1968.
(au) wrote: A stupefyingly dreary film with leaden acting and unrelieved depression. The only thing to recommend it is the score by Thomas Newman, especially the powerful but minimalist theme. You might say Kate Winslet is effective, and there's some truth to that, but her character takes such a horrifying (and forced) path to destruction that it's hard to judge her acting with such a manipulative screenplay involved. DiCaprio is quite awful in the role of an exceedingly awful character, which is to say his performance is a drag.
(br) wrote: "It's better than having you with your brains knocked out!" The Set-Up is the quintessential Fixed Fight movie and probably the ultimate Robert Ryan film to boot. At only 72 minutes, it's whiz bang boom over but it packs a punch with a pulse pounding, monstrous, and almost endless KO bout that sees Ryan's aged fighter mercilessly pulverizing his opponent when he should just take the dive. If you've seen just one boxing flick in the last forty years than you should know it all just stems from The Set-Up. VF.
