(gb) wrote: Tarzan and the Lost City (1998) -- [2.0] -- There is absolutely no reason anyone should care about this movie unless they just want to see Casper Van Dien in a loincloth. Even then, it ain't worth it. I also have to say this is a strong candidate for worst musical score in film history.

(jp) wrote: Elia Kazan directs Montgomery Cliff and Lee Remick in this story about a young TVA administrator sent in to get an old lady off a small island before they flood the river, but she refuses to budge. In his attempts he falls for her granddaughter, and causes some problems with the white racists of the town when he offers good paying jobs to blacks. It also sums up a lot of what is wrong with the South. It is a fine movie, with good acting and sone lovely imagery. Not the best film I've seen, but a good picture nonetheless.
(us) wrote: Brilliant film noir cinematography mixed with a flat story, which makes the characters feel like they're little kids running around with guns. It almost felt like South Park would turn this into an episode. Clara Calhoun closes her shop one night and when her assistant's gone she signals for a couple of robbers to come in. The hold up goes wrong when her assistant screams and a cop comes by, who shoots one of the guys and Duke Martin ends up shooting him. Of course you can see where this goes wrong. The cops are now looking for someone to hang for revenge and Marting and his partner were already going to frame someone for the crime. Calhoun knew ahead of time to tell the cops the kid who robbed her had sandy hair, and she tries to say that her assistant was too shaken up to know the hair color. So they pin the murder on the guy whose truck they stole, Steve Ryan, who has sandy hair. Rosie Ryan knows her brother wouldn't do such a thing. The man who was one of the robbers was her brother's sworn enemy, so there's no way that would have happened. Once Sgt. Ferguson gets his head around the fact that Steve wasn't the cop killer he starts going after Duke pretty quickly. Of course when Maria, the assistant, gets shot he goes to her house and discovers a picture of Duke. A pretty big jump in logic to think that he's the actual person who killed the cop because of the murder. I get it that you could make the connection, but he's really certain for some reason. Duke tries to help Rosie set up another man for the murder, but she's trying to stay on his good side so he doesn't kill her and so that she can find out more information. She's not sure Duke's the killer like Ferguson is. I think what was so comical was the way that Duke treated everyone. He tells Rosie to shut up in the middle of her sentence, he tells her to stop asking questions in a conversation, calls her a dame, etc. I can understand treating Calhoun this way because she seems to have a rough edge, but treating Rosie that way was just idiotic. He's supposed to be a smart criminal. The end falls apart when Duke figures out that his story's unraveling and he ends up shooting everyone connected to him. Again, not a very smart move. It takes away the potboiler feeling that's so great in film noir. Enjoyable, but not great.

(ru) wrote: I really liked the book this film was based on. It offered an interesting thriller set in a world where the Nazis won the war. The film reproduces that intrigue and mystery as the protagonists discover the horrifying truth of the Holocaust. That said, it's never really as engaging as the book was. Where does the film go wrong? In focusing on the thriller elements they downplay a lot of the worldbuilding present in the book. This is of course the main reason why people see a film like this: they wonder what the world would have been like run by Nazis. And obviously we get a little of it, but really with the exception of the hidden Holocaust (which of course we already know about) there's nothing here that couldn't be kept if the film was set in a generic eastern European nation instead, or even in Germany before the war. So we see none of the cultural shifts; the increasingly technocratic and arrogant young post-war SS officers, the difficulties of a fascist state with no obvious internal enemies to blame, the new peace-loving propaganda while the war in Russia rages on, etc. All gone. Which is a real shame because Rutger Hauer and Miranda Richardson are great in the lead roles. If only they hadn't chickened out on embracing the weirdness of the setting they could have had a real hit. As it is it's merely a mildly diverting thriller. Harmless, but not particularly exciting.
