Matt Dillon as boyfriend can properly impersonate her disabled boyfriend, but with Naomi Watts I'm having a big problem here. Her face doesn't fit. And with the story also. It cannot find the fine line between european-style social neorealism without any positive figure at all, and the american hero's struggling the system.
(es) wrote: This movie was awesome for what it was! And what it was, is a tongue in cheek, make everything obvious, let the audience know how dumb you want them to be, gory thrill ride. Not very scary, and the effects were cool but a bit cheesy, but man did this make me laugh and enjoy the time! As long as you understand irony and appreciate satirical comments, this is for you.
(kr) wrote: Boring monotony. This is based on a Franz Kafka novel, and for all intensive purposes, it doesn't translate well into film. It's about this guy, K. (played by Ulrich Mhe) who is a surveyor summoned to a castle. Due to a mix-up, it turns out that he wasn't needed at all. He meets a barmaid named Frieda, who he takes as his fiance. Other than that, the entire movie revolves around K. trying to find a castle official named Klamm to discuss the miscommunication. It's just tedious conversation after tedious conversation that you really can't care less about (I had to take two breaks just to get through it). And just where it starts to get good, it ends, because that is where Kafka's incomplete manuscript ends. This really doesn't feel like a Haneke film, other than that it has lots of black outs and slow pacing. I have now seen Michael Haneke's entire filmography, and this is easily my least favorite.

Director Bob Cawley tried many intriguing things in telling basically a very predictable story of greed and sexual tension destroying a group of four's journey to cross the border, find and take 17 tons of gold from a Mexican village. It has a host--which instantly reminded me of that suave spokesman for those foreign beer commercials--and had at least two of the main actors act as narrators, so that you could tell what they were thinking. It was zero-budget, but had some bizarre aspects of filmmaking which I found quite admirable, a few ideas that really worked and made the otherwise forgettable story worth watching. There were a few things I could certainly glean and learn from, and put someday in a film I made, should at some point in the future, I was blessed to make cinematic artwork for the world to see. In my opinion, to get your ideas from your mind, and to do everything necessary to make a lasting 60-120 minute visualization of them, is the pinnacle of the living experience and the highest honour one can achieve, at least in this world.

(es) wrote: Even though the wager on the slave-shooting gallery at the fair scene and the "If You Only Got a Moustache" musical number were fun to watch, the film is overall nothing different or more impressive than a typical Family Guy episode, only made live-action and putting artistic emphasis on 1800s Western America.
