Dr Gerald Bull was a genius at designing and building superguns (very large long range guns capable of shooting at ranges more than 100 miles). When an operational plan by the CIA to export sanctioned arms to apartheid-South Africa through him was exposed, the CIA denied all knowledge and he went to jail. He was later released, and moved to Belgium to start a subsidiary, of which a major project was to help Saddam Hussein build a new supergun capable of firing over 500 miles.

(nl) wrote: "Life beyond belief" ought not be so radical an idea given what is known, yet the magical thinking of faith continues to permeate and persecute meaning films like this stand as one of the few ways reason finds public voice. The film is mostly a highlight reel of some very smart and brave people saying very smart and (unbelievably) brave things. What it lacks in filmmaking power it more than makes up for in showcasing the audacity and importance of truth. As is said near the film's end: We may not yet have at our disposal the final answer for existence, but we do have access to a best answer - and it has nothing to do with a fictional bully in the sky.
(mx) wrote: The film tells a simple story, but one you cannot help enjoy. Larry David is his own worst enemy, standing in the way of an endless array of opportunities the world offers him. The set ups and pay-offs are splendid. The film has one of the best casts of the year, but somehow only Larry David and JB Smoove break out on screen. In the end, this is a wonderful Curb Your Enthusiasm film that is tons of fun.

It's thinly scripted, poorly edited and horribly acted; that I actually found myself laughing most of the time. I'm never watching this mess again but I'd love to get a DVD copy for collection.

(de) wrote: Very good film, incredible camerawork in each scene, accompanied by a plot that keeps me on the edge of my seat. Antonio Benderas was amazing in this film, and everyone else pulled their own weight. The plot is masterfully written and directed, and even though this is an artsy film, it's not pretentious to me. Definitely more of a thinker type film, but it really succeeds at being that. Mesmerizing film overall, I can say I definitely had a great time with this one
(mx) wrote: Following a group of Live-Action Role Playing Gamers, this documentary does little more than follow their exploits in their fantasy world. However, what the film divulges from it's subjects (although it's hard t tell how much the film is doing, and how much comes from my knowledge of fantasy players) is the importance of fantasy not just to them, but to the human condition. It gives them an opportunity to learn the skills society requires without having to confine themselves to the often unforgiving environment people have created within America which is anything but fair. While the film spends way too much time trying to get us involved in their players' made-up story and mythology (it succeeds in doing this with only a fraction of their footage, so it became overkill), it is still able to take a humane, and fair, picture of all involved, giving them the chance to explain their escapism. And they do so well.

(ag) wrote: The symbolism is a bit too obvious and calculated, with not much room for subtlety and being a tad sloppy towards the end, but this impressive film relies on an efficient surreal atmosphere like Alice in Wonderland in a Czech sociopolitical context.
(us) wrote: An awesome addition to the prolific Zatoichi series. Its use of humor intertwined with wisdom adds a strong support in contrast with the 1-2 minute long takes of Character Drama. Excellent cinematography that showcases the forest environment of Japan. A more unusual twist is the abstract use of cross dissolves and spot lighting as masterfully demonstrated in the films opening credits. It may come across as cliche now but it was ground breaking in 1964 and it still holds up today.

(ag) wrote: Think you've seen the worst horror movies of all time? Think again...The basic idea behind this film is decent, but only for one episode of a TV show. The acting was bad, the writing was bad, the character motivation was bad, the directing was bad, and even the sound design seemed to be horrible at times. Really there was nothing about this movie that was redeeming enough for me to say give it a shot.Unless you just want to see a movie that makes you laugh with how bad it is, then give it a shot.
