(fr) wrote: I watched this because it was featured on the podcast "How Did This Get Made?" While it is definitely not good, it is not as bad as I thought it would be. The story and dialogue are cheesy, but I enjoyed the dancing.
(us) wrote: It's amazing how the writer/s can meld so many events together into just over 100 minute of breath-taker. A must-see for anyone who knows or knows of Taiwan. Half a star deducted for the ridiculous distance between Wan-hua and Kao-hsiung (SPOILER ALERT! Agent Kelly went down to Kaohsiung from Taipei's Wan-hua station by train and was able to get back on the same day, which is only achievable by the recent high-speed bullet trains; on the fastest old-fashioned trains the trip down would have costed him 6 hours, he wouldn't have time to join the protest and get back to Taipei on the same day).

(ru) wrote: This film had some very cool scenes in it. In many ways it was Tarantino-like before there even was a Tarantino. I liked the how the director played with the soundtrack--the overlaps like the one during the roller derby scene were awesome. The final scene was also amazing particularly since it was filmed during an actual riot. That said, I found much of the film confusing and disliked many of the characters. Medium Cool is a artistically interesting and provocative but in the end is not terribly enjoyable.

The highlight for me is the music and the gorgeous looking locales! Made almost on the same tradition as "Picnic At Hanging Rock" from Austrailia which involves missing students without a trace! 3 out of 4

(au) wrote: Tensions run high in a multi-ethnic neighborhood during a New York heatwave.It sounds like the plot of Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing" yet this was filmed some sixty years prior. As well as Lee, it appears to have had a major influence on Woody Allen. If you've seen "Manhattan" (and if you haven't, stop reading and go watch it) several sequences will be familiar. The opening and middle montages of New York at sundown and sunset with their Gershwin-esque score by Alfred Newman bear more than a passing resemblance to Allen's great opening. Likewise the movie's final scene, involving a rebuttal of a lover by a young girl who is a lot more mature than he had thought.It's adapted by the writer Elmer Rice from his Pulitzer winning stage play and in the hands of an average director of the time it would probably be no more than a filmed play. Vidor is not average thankfully and this is a beautiful film in the visual sense. His camera is constantly on the move, probing the nooks and crannies of a very convincing set. He finds inventive angles which reveal subtle information such as the low shot which reveals the outwardly prim and proper Bondi adjusting her underwear out of sight of the neighbours she disrespects. Had this been made after the introduction of the code it would have been a very different film. Characters throw racial insults around casually and the local good-time girl flaunts her bra-less cleavage in a manner which must have provoked outrage at the time.Thanks to the pre-code dialogue, the movie has aged extremely well. The New York Times complained at the time that the dialogue was "spoken without sufficient pause". This of course was made a good decade before Hawks and Sturges would turn quickfire banter into an artform. The realistic language seems however to enable the actors to relax into their parts and the performances are so natural it feels like it was made thirty years later. Sidney is particularly good and looks fantastic. I actually came across this purely by mistake while searching for another of Sidney's movies, "City Streets". You can view the movie in it's entirety on Youtube and I thoroughly suggest you do.

(gb) wrote: Belting VHS era schlock-horror classic, directed by William Lustig but with a strong aroma of B-Movie auteur Larry Cohen, who provided the screenplay. Dependable Tom Atkins - familiar to John Carpenter fans -takes centre stage as the world-weary cop on the case, and Bruce Campbell (plus chin) features as an officer wrongly accused of the atrocities of the 'Maniac Cop'. Arrow Films have recently released an HD version, which is ripe for rediscovery by genre fans.
