(ag) wrote: I was enthralled by Joshua Marston's first feature film, "Maria Full of Grace" (2004). So I was very excited to see that he had finally made a second film. (He directed a lot of television during the intervening years.) But "The Forgiveness of Blood," despite having some wonderful aspects, is not going to be described by anyone as enthralling. It is set in present-day Albania. (Marston's ability to cross cultures continues to amaze.) A feud develops between two families, leading to a murder. The man who commits the murder disappears, and his wife and children have to go into seclusion. The two teenagers in the family, magnificently played by two young Albanian actors, are the center of the film. We get to experience the ordeal for the most part through these teenagers' eyes, a boy and a girl. I felt like I learned a lot about Balkan culture, and I did feel emotionally engaged with the characters. But the story just does not have enough content. There aren't enough dramatic elements. Not enough happens. It feels to me that Marston needed to spend more time developing the story before starting the film shoot. I wish he had. There are masterpiece elements in "Forgiveness" that lie to some degree inert on the screen because of the under-developed story.

(kr) wrote: What a cast! And an entertaining, witty movie about some of my favorite artists from one of my favorite periods of history. Beautifully filmed. Has anyone else reviewing this actually read a novel by George Sand? I did.

(ag) wrote: Suspenseful, intriguing, and very intense noir piece about double crossing, treason, and deceitful dames. Very underrated movie that shows Dick Powell's fantastic acting skills, as he wonders through the dangerous streets of his home town, five years after he was framed for robbery, looking for the ones who framed him. The russian roulette scene will surely make your heart race.
(ru) wrote: It's minor Hawks. It's certainly watchable and has some strong sequences but I don't think the second half is very interesting.Hawks is probably the wrong director for the material. They mythologizing doesn't work too well.
(br) wrote: A stellar cast from Minghella to Long. Tatum to Dawson do not make a good film. Its reminescent of a brat pack movie but with no wit or charm. A bunch of freinds reunite and each has a story strand. Watchable never the less
(it) wrote: Their are many reasons why this sequel is the best of the lot.-Connection to the first movie.-A new location with it's own personality.-Samuel L. Jackson and Jeremy Irons doing what they do best.-A competent and exciting script (aside from a stock 3rd act).-John McTiernan directing.To me, this is the only and definitive Die Hard sequel. Exciting, funny, and never fails to entertain.

(de) wrote: Another film from the OTC Halloween Throwdown from 2014, and something I'd actually seen before. The middling grade is based on how much fun you can have poking fun at this one, because it's a largely terrible film, but a ton of fun when viewed in the 'so bad it's good' category.Rental!
