(de) wrote: "If someone wants to destroy himself, society should allow him to do so."Opening with a Resnais perspective about the entrails of a city and its inhabitants, developing the story with a Moodysson-like minimalist and introspective style, and concluding with an Antonioni fashion, Oslo, 31. august is a depressing character study of a man's weaknesses and his incapability to cope with a society that has condemned him so much for reasons that we are never mentioned so that we do not have any moral or judgmental bias beforehand.Human hipocrisy is endless. Man thinks he is the perfect juror of the world, even assigning degrees of seriousness to immoral acts, but forgets about his own faults, like if one particular act could be condemned more than another. Anders is a man with an addiction. Either it was his addiction or his personality (most probably both) the ones that caused negative repercussions on the lives of those closest to him. Some decidions taken during his evening leave were driven by emotions rather than carefully premeditated; however, his main intentions are honorable no less than they are important. Few people are capable of going through an addiction; surprisingly enough (hear this), even less people are brave enough to look at themselves in the mirror, accept their condition and face the ghosts of their pasts in order to make ammends and fix their mistakes.The ending is impactful just as it is fair; maybe because we are used to a satisfying resolution that ties all loose ends, we are afraid of leaving the theater or walking away from our chair with a negative feeling, but that's life. Just when I was an inch away from rating this half a star or maybe even a full star lower than a "perfect score" because the film had left so many emotional bonds and past situations to our imagination so that empathizing with the feelings of the main character became a more difficult task, the ending clarified all doubts for me:They don't matter. He is a human being after all. It is in the final 6-minute shot in which we know him even better than the rest of the movie had allowed us to do.97/100

I must admit, after watching the first film I hadn't heard of the EV1 and learning what happened to it, how little it was marketed, and so on, just made me pissed. Big business will do anything for money. People forget that they don't care about your health, well being, or future. This film taught me other things I didn't expect it would. Just as well put together as the first. It presents the positives and negatives, past and future. I liked that.

(ca) wrote: Again GREAT THANKS to SHAWN SMITH of BLACKEST HEART MEDIA for bringing this Soundtrack to CD. Manhattan Baby is my favorite FULCI soundtrack. Yet the film is only so-so but its a classic nevertheless. I first saw this on Lightning Video (a subsidiary of Vestron Video) in the summer of 1986--from THE BOX OFFICE video store in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania (in the same Plaza as Acme). Its in Cinemascope and the videotape was pan & scan and everything was cropped (or cut-off) from the edges of the screen. A scorpion, for instance, would literally wander off the right edge of the screen. Finally ANCHOR BAY came into being in 1996 and MANHATTAN BABY came to DVD in 2001 in all its 2:35.1 ASPECT RATIO GLORY!!!!!! (the movie is still only so-so even with the letter-boxing, but its still . . . a classic) Clive Barker is a TOTAL FAN of Fulci and rips-off the ending of MANHATTAN BABY in Hellraiser.
(ag) wrote: Way underrated John Carpenter directed Stephen King adap film from the 80's (which if your a horror buff and somehow haven't seen it is music to the ears surely) it sounds in description like it's going to be bad and campy as hell, the concept is " boy buys car, car turns out to be possessed, starts to murder all those who wrong the boy", but it's actually a beautifully well made horror, with strong performances, lovely cinematography and masterful direction from Carpenter. A really fucking good, creepy, top quality film and one of the very best King adaptations there is. A horror treat.
(de) wrote: Exuberant and funny light-hearted follow up to the serious drama 'Smoke'; a real declaration of love to Brooklyn, with even a few real-life interview snippets mixed with fictional, often improvised vignettes of neighbors and deadbeats hanging at the smoke shop (including many amazing cameos, especially Michael J. Fox and his list of possibly the best survey questions ever!)
