Ed Fucking H (kr) wrote: A really good, low-key. gritty and realistic portrait of a schizophrenic man attempting to locate his aducted daughter. The film follows William Keane, played excellently by Damian Lewis, through various bars, hotel rooms and bathrooms. He drinks lotsa beers, snorts coke, gets into fights and has casual sexual encounters along the way, until he meets a a women and her daughter and decides to help them pay for their hotel room. A relationship builds between these three characters and we begin to question the reality of Keanes daughter. The performances are really good all around and the tone is gritty and always believable. The pace is very slow and as such will not appeal to all audiences, but if you want to see something that is downbeat and realistic you could do alot worse. Recommended.

Zach C (fr) wrote: I love how people act like they never laugh at stupid humor. I enjoy wit and intellectual comedy, but there's just something funny about hearing a woman scream "I hope your diddly turns black and falls in the crapper!" as loud and fast as she can. This movie is meant for wrestling fans, but if you're in a mood to just relax and laugh, this is a pretty good choice.

The storyline for this picture is fun and funny in some ways. The writing is better than average and the characters are very well portrayed. The cast includes Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau, Heather Graham, Ron Livingston, and Brooke Langton."I need to use the phone."I randomly came across this on Netflix and decided to give it a viewing. I'm actually a little ashamed I had never seen this, but while this was entertaining, it wasn't a masterpiece or too worth going out of your way to see. I recommend seeing this once if nothing better is on."Vegas, baby! Vegas!"Grade: C+
Edith N (ca) wrote: We Begin by Dreaming of What We See Every Day I don't work in the film industry, you may know, though I did take two quarters of video production in community college. I have friends in the business and a cousin who is not only in the business but hopes to go to film school. What I'm saying is that I don't have a lot of experience with getting your independent movie made, so I'm mostly just assuming that, if this movie isn't an accurate portrayal of that, the cast certainly knows. No one in this movie is a big star, and while Steve Buscemi has done [i]Spy Kids[/i] and [i]Armageddon[/i], I think most people think of him more for [i]Fargo[/i] and [i]Reservoir Dogs[/i]. [i]The Big Lebowski[/i], probably. But my understanding of independent film is that it has a lot of frustration which is different from that of the studio stuff, and I suspect that even studio films have some of the problems that appear in the making of the film-within-a-film here. Nick Reve (Buscemi) is trying to make a movie. From what I can tell, he's one of those independent directors who everyone thinks will probably be a Coen or a Tarantino--one who might be the Next Big Thing but isn't yet. He is trying to direct a scene between Nicole Springer (Catherine Keener) and Cora (Rica Martens). But things keep going wrong and keep going wrong and then there's this beeping which is driving him crazier and crazier and it's his alarm and he wakes up. And then we're in the hotel of Chad Palomino (James LeGros), who has slept with Nicole. But it's not a relationship, it's just a thing, and they're going to go work together and not mention it to anyone. They're trying to do a scene together, but Chad, who wants to be a Great Actor, keeps coming up with ideas about how things ought to be done. And he's going behind her back and talking about things that he swore he wouldn't talk about, and it's driving her crazy, and she wakes up. And then we actually go work on the movie. On a dream sequence. You know, the thing is, these dreams aren't that much unlike my own. Someone I know was complaining about how the dream sequences in [i]Inception[/i] were too linear, that there's never something random and totally unexpected. My response to this was that [i]my[/i] dreams are linear, and the inside of my head clearly isn't the inside of David Lynch's or what have you. Peter Dinklage as Tito gets a great rant about how they thought, "Oh, this is a dream sequence, so something weird has to happen. Bring out the dwarf!" Only no one actually has dwarfs in their dreams, even him. (I wonder if this is really true.) And there's a line about how you can't have a dream sequence without a smoke machine. But a lot of my dreams, I can't tell are dreams while I'm having them, because they're just like life. The dream sequence from the movie-within-a-movie is less real; the characters' own dreams are anxiety dreams that fit with how we actually see the world while we sleep. Or at least how I do. Actually, I watched most of this movie last weekend, but the disc skipped in the last five minutes. This drove me crazy. It would have been worse if it had been a comedy, but man! And while I liked it, I wasn't sure I liked it well enough to watch it again this soon, so I just watched the last five minutes. The last chapter. And the thing is, I was struck by how simple some of the fantasies in it were. Yes, the director imagines having his movie win the award for Greatest Film Ever Made by a Human. Which is not quite a normal dream, okay, but it's probably a normal dream for a director. On the other hand, one of the characters just thinks of having a nice burger. In the last thirty seconds of filming the dream sequence, we have the kind of dream that we don't have at night--the daydream of what you really want from life. Or think you might want to try, in one case; I'm not sure it's what the character actually wants. With a film like this, you run the risk of having it too "inside." As I said, I've never made a movie, but I've been on the set of a TV show as it was filmed. I grew up in Los Angeles County; I've known what a Best Boy is since I was eight. (That was the year I had a Sunday school teacher whose husband was one.) I would imagine that a lot of people watching this movie would wonder what all those people were doing hanging about the set. People who know about filmmaking already know. Even on a cheap production, you can't just have a cameraman and a sound guy. There are lighting people, script people, for preference a continuity editor, grips, and on and on. And, yes, there is the fact that people are cast and take roles for reasons that do not necessarily have anything to do with whether an actor and a role connect. All concerned swear up and down that Chad Palomino is not Brad Pitt, but it's also acknowledged that he's someone else who was a big deal in Hollywood at the time. Someone else he'd worked with, anyway. Based on the evidence, I'm guessing Matt Dillon.

As a ruthless high school track coach & prime suspect of killing off the team I though he was great & the best thing about this. Distributed by Troma this isn't a Troma style movie even though it probably had as much budget as the Troma movie. The kills are cheap & the acting is almost non existent except for George. there are times of fun like a girl killed while shaving her legs in a sink & Vanna White screams her fool head off. Obviously Vanna's greatest acting talent is turning letters.
The Movie W (br) wrote: I recall viewing this film as a child and wondering why I could only see the actors' noses and ears speaking to one another. Later it was shown in full widescreen and I realised that the previous TV screenings had been victim to the barbaric and now thankfully extinct practice of "pan & scan". The picture, like all widescreen movies shown on TV until quite recently, had been cropped to accommodate the TV screen. The movies which suffered most from this philistine ritual were the lavish Hollywood productions of the fifties and sixties. Casts of thousands were often reduced to no more than ten centurions and half of Liz Taylor's face. Ironically widescreen was originally developed to combat the growing popularity of the domestic television set. "How the West was Won" was filmed in that widest of formats, Cinerama, and was the only real success of the format, discounting the various travelogue documentaries. This was to be an epic undertaking on a scale never before witnessed in the western genre. By celebrating the conquering of the West, Hollywood was acknowledging the factors which ultimately led to it's own foundation. While it brashly celebrates the American pioneer spirit, the film avoids a rose-tinted view of events. It's a movie which isn't afraid to acknowledge that while the taming of the West is a story of hard toil and ingenuity it's also a tragic tale of deceit and broken promises. Spencer Tracy narrates a storyline which is broken into five segments. Strangely, given the reputation of it's director, John Ford's "The Civil War" is the weakest. Ford evidently viewed the Cinerama process as no more than a gimmick and makes little effort to compose his shots in a manner which exploits the distinctive shape of the frame. The most exciting segment is George Marshall's "The Railroad", featuring a chilling performance from Richard Widmark as a railroad foreman who cheats an Indian tribe out of their land. There's a thrilling scene involving a buffalo stampede which must have been some experience in a theater fitted with a Cinerama screen. Compare it to a similar sequence in this year's dire "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and see how far Hollywood spectacle has sunk. No amount of CG can compare with the sight of a herd of live buffalo running rampage across the screen. Marshall is one of Hollywood's forgotten men, known for helming action scenes for other directors. He's responsible for no less a set-piece than the famed chariot race in "Ben Hur". Henry Hathaway takes on the remaining three segments, "The Rivers", The Plains" and "The Outlaws". His westerns were usually more intimate tales and here he focuses on the journey of two generations of a pioneering family. Of the three directors, it's Hathaway who uses Cinerama to it's best advantage. His shots are beautifully composed, exploiting the unique sense of depth the format was renowned for. I know it's a cliche but you really could hang any of these shots on your wall. This is a light film for the most part but a must see for fans of good old Hollywood extravagance. I recommend the Blu-ray which features a second disc employing the "Smilebox" technique. This replicates the curved screen of Cinerama and makes for one of the most impressive sights you're likely to see on a HDTV.
