Is it just another evening at the hugely popular Italian restaurant of proprietor and bookmaker Louis Cropa in New York? Anything but as tonight's guests include; a local police detective and his wife specially invited by the owner; on the balcony rival bookmaker gangsters from Queens who want to become partners in the restaurant; in the corner renowned food critic 'the food nymph' is her usual demanding self; and at the bar, seemingly unnoticed, is Ken. As the evening continues enter Duncan, inveterate gambler and sous-chef on-the-line in the frenetic kitchen downstairs, who acts as the catalyst that causes the evening to draw to its inevitable, explosive, deadly conclusion.

Achilles to kame actually begins with a smart fable that poses its meaning almost before the movie ends (you can completely predict the last title card before it is shown). Kitano, however, makes a very uneven testament of that misunderstood and obsessed artist. It took me half ot the movie to realize it was a comedy, so it may be seen as three different skecthes... And even so, I was left cold. 62/100

It's not awful, and generally I like small town settings and I'm not someone who thinks movies need to be "nice" either, as that's not how life is. I don't know why I really couldn't take to this that much. The cast are good (well, aside from the daughter. Geez. I actually wondered if she was meant to be special needs in her earlier scenes, but , no, just bad acting it seems).

Chris B (br) wrote: Last Tango in Paris is a complex film, it's definitely not for the easily offended or those who are uneasy around sex and sexual behavior used in the form of artistic cinema. This is not pornography, for a number of reasons, the main being there is no sex scene in the film that is erotic for eroticism's sake. The sexual encounters and the apartment that they rendevous at for said encounters, becomes a place outside of our all-seeing and social world, becoming a haven of sexual release and release as well as self-degradation. The film has some truly poetic and wonderfully filmed cinematography and great angles abound throughout. The music also lends itself wonderfully to the context and feel of the film creating a moody and eeriely secluded atmosphere. The film was lauded as the beginning to a new artistic emergence of sexual-freedom in cinema, not as a form of pornography but as a story with artistic value and deeper meaning, that simply used sexuality as a means to explore the inward battles and frustrations of it's characters. Marlon Brando is wonderfully animalistic and is clearly angry, frustrated, hurt and is overall an emotional wreck after his wife's suicide, due to unknown reasons, and his sexual exploits in the film are his way of releasing the pent-up anguish and frustration at his wife and those around him but mostly on himself. If you can deal with and/or accept the content and it's deeper meaning, you will find a lot to like here, however it is not for everyone.

Drawing from an unpublished sequel to 300, 300: Rise of an Empire (the title is meaningless) is a follow up to the first film where the Spartans have died. Now the other Greek city states must unite against the invading Persians and their allies. Eva Green was beautiful and she performed a role that is totally outcasted perfectly. Sullivan Stapleton had a good performance but his figure really didn't suit the role of Themistocles. Aside from the unnecessary gore and sex, it was quite entertaining.
