(de) wrote: Wonderful and dramatic love story told in an artsy way with the powerful backdrop of an impending war
(us) wrote: With absolutely flawless comedic delivery, timing and unparalleled chemistry between the lead roles, this may be one of the funniest films I have seen. Perfectly scripted and casted, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang doesn't miss a beat.
(it) wrote: An excellent documentary about the age old American pass-time of hopping freight cars. It reached its height of popularity in the 1930s but people still do it today. Filmmaker Sarah George interviews many interesting people who live off the grid by riding rails and camping rough in the USA. These people have amazing stories and have seen and lived life as it should be done.

(jp) wrote: This was originally written in 1935, but put aside and forgotten about for almost 6 decades. After the screenwriter's death, his son found this forgotten work, read and fell in love with it, and, after updating it for contemporary times, decided to finally have a film made out of it. What we get here is a glimpse into the surprising life and times of a twenty dollar bill and the people that directly and indirectly come into contact with it. It's not a truly unique idea in general, but the use of such a ubiquitous object is. Having it solely focus on the bill would be boring, so what we really get presented with is a look at the lives of the people the bill comes in and out of contact with. They come from all walks of life and economic social classes, so, in effect, this is a clever little film that shows almost the full make up of the denizens of an anonymous American city.Some of the many types of people that get followed include a lottery obsessed homeless woman, an aspiring writer working as a waitress, a veteran thief trying to train an unpredictable new partner, and a groom to be whose not too sure about his father-in-law to be.The characters are made up of an impressive ensemble cast that includes names like Linda Hunt, Christopher Lloyd, Steve Buscemi, Elisabeth Shue, Brendan Fraser, among several others. They all do a pretty decent job, but my favorites are the first three people I mentioned. The film is presented as interwoven vignettes, and, while they're not uniformly great quality-wise, none of them are really terrible.All in all this is a really fun and enjoyable film that's sadly underrated. Do yourself a favor and look it up.

(au) wrote: Jon Stewart is one of my favorite celebs so naturally I wanted to see this movie. On top of that, Bernal is one of my favorite "foreign" actors (he often appears in Mexican movies). It's a good story and I like some of what Stewart did in telling backstory, but it's also less compelling than I think Stewart wanted it to be. I don't know if the fault belongs with Stewart or in the story itself.
(ag) wrote: A basic film, designed to be inspirational and uplifting, and well... you can't say it doesn't succeed at just that. You mostly know how the general story line will pan out, but there are a few pleasant surprises throughout. It will make you feel good, and makes Rudy a character to like and relate to, and it is truly astonishing to see how determined an underdog can be. It also manages to throw in some great performances and excellent direction. This is a movie to make you feel good, to pull on the heartstrings and just give you a reminder that dreams aren't always too hard to fulfill.
(fr) wrote: A truly dull and un-inspired film. Gary Oldman, Michael Wincott, Lena Olin's performances were flat. Very disappointing.
