(es) wrote: Review In A Nutshell:Kevin Smith has grown on me with splendid films like Chasing Amy, Mallrats and Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back; but then a misfire like Dogma comes along that lets me take a step back and realise that the director is capable of misfiring.Dogma is a story of two angels out to reach New Jersey in order to enter a passageway of a church that would allow them to re-entry into heaven; but that would disprove one of his principles, ergo a "chosen one" is sent to stop them, with the companion of angels, prophets and such. Similar to Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back, Dogma is a road film that places characters in pit-stops that would eventually come together in its end on a climactic showdown; but what made the former such a fun and entertaining film, is the exciting and humorous events that the characters get into; here the road is filled with excessive expository dialogue that shows deep intellect of the Catholic religion, but lacks the ingredient that blends these together and create a sweet and delicious flavour; I was constantly chewing, waiting for an opportunity to swallow. I wanted the dialogue to be less on plot and more on comedy, like Mallrats; displaying conversations that are light in story but heavy on humour. There were only very few instances where I released a chuckle or a smile. I think the plot is too big for Smith's sense of style; he suits more when he is handling grounded and relatable characters, rather than fantasy and heavy symbolism.I could go on and on about this film, and the outcome of this review would still be the same, this film is an underwhelming and often dull journey that focuses too much on the wrong aspects of its storytelling. Kevin Smith is much too good for this.

(kr) wrote: Film historian and professor Thomas Elsaesser once said "...writing about Persona has been for film critics and scholars what climbing Everest is for mountaineers: the ultimate professional challenge." I completely agree with him. Despite being under 90 minutes, this film is probably one of the most complex films I've run into in years. After I finished it, I didn't even know where to start when attempting to analyze it. However, after thinking about it for a little bit, I formed a basic summary for it, and things kept going uphill from there.A nurse named Alma is put in charge of a mute actress named Elisabet Vogler. She talks to her numerous times without ever receiving an answer. Eventually, the 2 go to a beach house. After living with each other for a little while, the story twists into a bizarre and complex story beyond realism.Many of the analysis's that I've read argue that either Alma is Elisabet's persona or vice versa. Those are interesting interpretations. However, I think that both women are personas of the boy we see at the beginning and, briefly, at the end of the film. In the movie, we learn that both Alma and Elisabet got pregnant and had an abortion. We also learn that Elisabet's baby survived, and she gave him away to a nanny. I think that that is what happened to the boy. When I was first introduced to him, I got a slight vibe that he's being mistreated at his current home since his bed looked really unappealing. He wasn't given a pillow and he only had one thin bed sheet. He also didn't have much clothes on. I felt like he could've been slightly insecure due to his seemingly poor treatment (this explains some of the seemingly random imagery at the beginning and the middle of the film, although I'm not sure about the film reels).With that being said, I think that the personas of the 2 women represented the boy's depiction of his mother. He likely has a negative opinion of his mom since she abandoned him and left him in a dull environment. It seems like he's punishing both of the women initially. Elisabet is being punished as he's not allowing her to talk. Alma's initial punishment is a little harder to figure out, but it's possible that the boy finds her having to watch over an insane patient (Elisabet) as a punishment since they become isolated with each other. After Alma tells of how she got pregnant, we can assume that the boy is especially upset at her due to the different things that happen to her. We see that Elisabet is trying to mail Alma's sex story to the public, Elisabet gives her a bloody nose in a fight, and Alma is negatively effected when Elisabet attempts to leave her alone at the beach house (she breaks down crying at one point). This goes on for a little while, but we see the boy change his focus after Elisabet reveals a similar story which seems more plausible since we learn that she was unable to abort her baby. This scene is famously repeated in the film, which could mean that the boy is trying to confirm that it really was her.Bergman usually nails cinematography really well in his films. Bergman also handled the visual aspect expertly in this movie as well. It is, quite possibly, the most visually impressive of his films. Images of the beach and cleverly lit rooms are beautiful to look at. There are also some scenes which have a somewhat surreal quality to them. The movie is able to use simple camera movements to create these. An early example of this is when Alma is talking to the Doctor near the beginning. The camera is usually pointed at her for most of their conversation, and on the 2nd time she meets with her, the camera is only focused on Alma, and we just hear the doctor's voice. There are several of these shots throughout the film. I also really liked the surreal imagery at the beginning of the film. It made that sequence really memorable, and it informed me of the complicated film that would follow it. Also, on my re-watch, I noticed how the movie constantly focused on hands. There were numerous shots which seemed to draw attention to hands almost like it was a motif. These shots tended to stick out quite a lot. It's possible that those shots were supposed to represent reaching out into the unfathomable depths of someone. This fits in with the scene at the beginning pretty well when the boy reaches out and touches a screen with both women's faces on it. I think that Bergman was sort of giving us a clue as how to go about interpreting his film.In conclusion, this movie is a masterpiece. It's incredibly complicated with a lot of obscure imagery and set pieces, and it has great visuals as well. It's always great to see a challenging film which requires you to think every now and then. This movie, however, feels incredibly complicated and more so than other complex films that I've seen. I didn't enjoy Bergman's "The Seventh Seal" that much, but this movie was definitely worth my time. I'm going to look into Bergman more in the future.

(ca) wrote: Ah Woody Allen. A director that, surprisingly as a kid, i heard so much about for his witty humor and his simple but yet very touching and warmhearted romances. And sure he had a rocky career after the mid 80's, but since the release of Midnight in Paris (a film i'm eagerly gonna try and watch at some point.) he's been reaching his glory once again. And with Cafe Society coming out soon, i thought i would try and watch his first directorial and praised film: Annie Hall. And after a surprisingly short 1 hour and 33 minutes, is the film good and better yet does it even make me a fan of his style of comedy and romance? Honestly, yes and yes. Honestly i wasn't expecting to be blown away from this film all that much, especially without hearing much about Annie Hall other than it being a good film, and i was luckily happy enough to enjoy the film A LOT. While i do think that i wish the main characters themselves were a bit more likable to understand some of the choices they make from their relationship & some of the cinematography is a tad bit stale (which Woody Allen has been known to lack,) i have to say the film is still a very comedically funny and dramatic trip i had fun with. The positives were: The performances from Diana Keaton & Woody Allen are STELLAR and make for a likable duo for romance, the camerawork is impressive enough on it's own to make up for the cinematography, nice reincorporation is made superbly through the films climax and through very important dramatic scenes, some funny cameos from up and coming stars like Jeff Goldblum, Christopher Walken & Sigourney Weaver, and the script is charming and hilarious through it's characters and it's superb comedy. So overall, yeah i enjoyed it. I like Woody Allen's 'Ferris Bueller' persona and very spot on pop culture references type of humor, and it makes me want to see more of his work. Hopefully soon with Manhattan, Midnight in Paris & Cafe Society it can make me enjoy him for his impact on Hollywood and as a director.
