(ru) wrote: :up: Although this movie is generally aimed at the older generation, i actually found it quite moving as my parents divorced when i was younger and it showed how it can affect everyone and how important it is to try and work things out rather than taking the easy way out! I'd aim this film at people over the age of 30! :up:

That's a good thing as far as I'm concerned, but that means it moves slowly and there's far more sitting around and talking than exciting car chases (although, come to think of it, there's a kind of car chase too). A few of the characters are a little too self-consciously onstagelike, and the production quality is slightly amateurish. However, the script is intelligent, funny, and hits all the right notes without being either too morbid or too sappy. Peter Falk was fantastic, creating his own unique character. The ending veered dangerously close to being trite, but managed to avoid that. All in all, a very satisfying little movie you've probably never seen.(Also, although they have the cast list correct on this site, the cover picture is not. That's from the 1989 film of the same title.)

If you're not rooting for him throughout this movie, do yourself a favor and check your f**king pulse. Basically, you've got awesome shots-on-location in NYC at the waning of it's prime (the early '80s,) enough humor to keep it from being a depressing movie, and a story that might even soothe the sorest 'patriotism muscle' in this increasingly malcontented American culture. All of this on top of Williams' stellar performance. If this doesn't appeal to you then you'll probably be more comfortable slipping in and out of consciousness at the latest big budget superhero rehash, because everyone knows that originality is much more novel the second time around.

(au) wrote: Jarmusch's vampire epic is a truly memorable trip grounded with solid performances and an equally stunning performance by the now abandoned Detroit which was once so glamorous. A brilliant take on how people ought to behave after hundreds of years of living.
(kr) wrote: Tied with Bullitt for third best McQueen film, Papillon is a smart and entertaining motion picture with a bittersweet ending and a plethora of emotional scenes. Franklin J. Schaffner delivers yet another great film.
(es) wrote: This is the kind of movie Fincher was born to make and he made another damn good crime/drama with amazing performances. The movie was brutal, realistic, and very dark, he shines the most when making this sort of movie. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is an amazing movie, it could have used more character development though.
