What a terrible way to be known by people other than fans of cinema who are in awe of his brilliant talent. This doc covers most of these issues, though I was hoping it'd be more about his movie-making career in general, versus insidious press propaganda amplifying the whole filthy statutory rape ordeal, and the judge in the case being a media-whore, celebrity wanna-be jackass. If I sound frustrated, it's probably because I am. I can't condone parasites having their way with fawnlings, no matter how off-the-charts tremendous their artistic abilities are, but I also hate the press and people in powerful positions like judges who will bully their ways into blood money, publicity and aggressively borrowed drama. And I never wanted to get this deep into the details of Polanski's personal life, but I'm sure he's used to it.

Her younger friend Ichiko is quite a bit bubblier and fun loving, but possesses a gift for language and translation. While they could not be more different personality wise, something clicks between the two young women and they become quick friends after meeting each other at a dance club. However, this friendship is not quite the type found in such films as Kamizake Girls. Instead, Eri and Ichiko are lovers and during the time they have known each other their affection for each other has grown quite deep. However, besides a gay friend named Take, the young women have not revealed to anyone their relationship.Ichiko takes the first step and introduces Eri to her father. She believes that because her father is a literary liberal that he will be quite open to her and Eri??s relationship and she is quite right. However, she learns a bit more than she bargained for when she learns not only is her father gay, but that her deceased mother was a lesbian. Apparently her father and mother were best friends and decided to marry after both of them broke up with their significant others. They did not ??love?? each other in the ??traditional?? sense, but they wanted a child, so Ichiko was born. Eri??s family is a more rigid and she is hesitant to speak out. What will become of the two lovers?Although I have watched such films as Nakajima Takehiro??s Okoge and Hashiguchi Ryosuke??s A Touch of Fever and Like Grains of Sand which deal with the subject of male homosexuality. Love My Life is only the second film that I have watched on the topic of lesbianism in Japan. While the film??s subject is quite promising, the execution falls pretty flat. The film opens well when it deals with issues such as ??coming out?? and introducing one??s same sex lover to one??s family, but other matters are handled rather ham-fisted such as the general repugnance felt by the general populace towards gays and lesbians. Also, the films subject matter derails quite unexpectedly somewhere in the middle of the film and I felt I was watching a completely different film. Love My Life is enjoyable, but, in my opinion, Shindo Kaze??s film Love/Juice is a better film dealing with similar themes.

Natalie Portman plays Anne who has been moved from a small town to California because her mother played by Susan Sarandon who has hopes of being famous. She pushes her daughter to try out for acting roles but Anne doesn't wanna be an actress. Adele and Anne moved around alot because Adele could never find comfort in any location. This is a classic movie of the single mom trying to raise a daughter who is actually more grown up than her mother.

Frances H (fr) wrote: Cute comedy, but also makes a point that should be taken to heart. As happens in public high schools, sports teams in college should come from the regular students bodies, not specifically recruited athletes who get scholarships for playing and easy courses to skate through as long as they deliver wins. These teams don't really represent their schools and take scholarships away from the intellectually gifted students who deserve them. The European system is better, but if sports teams are associated with American colleges and universities, they should really represent their student bodies, not be a training program for the NFL.

Jake A (fr) wrote: This second film in the Man With No Name trilogy is even better than the first. With a more expansive story, way better action, a great counterpart to Eastwood's character, an even better score, gorgeous settings, great cinematography and even a humorous script despite even more brutal violence this is up there with the best Westerns.
