However most of these movies come off as smug, as though the filmmakers are above-it-all. TROPIC THUNDER had a fun time satirizing Hollywood, but it never goes that extra mile to really turn the knife, after all, we don't want to kill any job opportunities. STATE AND MAIN isn't exactly a total evisceration of Hollywood, but there isn't a shred of smuggy snark to be found here, and that's a good thing. David Mamet has long been a critic of the higher-ups in his industry, his book BAMBI VS. GODZILLA is where he really let the industry have it. STATE AND MAIN is his sprawling movie about making movies, in which a Hollywood film crew descends upon a stereotypically idyllic American small town. Contrasting the sleepy small-town ideal with the go-go-go, now-now-now filmmaking mentality, Mamet's made a big comedy that feels intimate in its presentation. It's funny, full of colorful and well realized characters, and it has that trademark Mamet dialogue that is so fun to listen to. It's a shame more people didn't see or appreciate it.

(au) wrote: Considered one of the great cult classics of the 1980's, Highlander sounded like a fun adventure.I've seen Highlander a total of three times now, and it just gets better with every viewing. By the third one, I was able to isolate its underlyng themes and dramatic intentions more and find greater depth in the feature. To put it simply, Highlander is a great movie because it is a low budget guilty pleasure and not ashamed to admit it. But it takes its limited budget and simplicity to the maximum extent, being a transcendent cult movie.Highlander features a story built around a mysterious species of immortal human warriors. The fantasy elements in the story remain consistent as the origin of the immortals are not explained, and the mystery of it is a subject of intrigue. The ambiguity in Highlander means that the film does not have to waste time attempting to be innovative or follow conventional roots, rather allowing viewers to determined the context for themselves or be left in wonder. Highlander instead spends time telling a story of warriors in modern day with the protagonist who has to confront his existence and the wreckage of his past, progressively paving the way for genuine dramatic themes and romance which work their way into the story very nicely. Highlander is one of the few times where I have seen all these elements make their way into what is essentially a fantasy-action story and still work so seriously instead of coming off as unnecessary gimmicks. But most importantly, the combination of classic sword and sorcery plot points in a modern day 1980's setting is an innovative concept because it makes the film a legitimate sword and sorcery film and a contemporary action film at the same time. The story in Highlander is basic, but it tries to be deep in areas, and audiences with a true appreciation for the ambitions of Gregory Widen are bound to get caught up in its cult audience. Highlander is such a cult movie. It is packed with fun, and it even has underlying themes that fans will embrace. The screenplay knows directly what audience to aim for, and it reaches them by adding a sense of humour into the tale among other things. Some of the lines are funny for their genuine comic value, while others such as "I am Connor MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod" are humourous simply because of Christophe Lambert's gimmicks in delivering them. But no line is as iconic as "There can be only one", a simple line which carries the gimmick of whoever delivers it extremely well. There is genuine drama, humour and a mystical sense of wisdom carried by the screenplay in Highlander which all seeps into the experience naturally.Because the story is such a simple one, all the director has to do is structure the film with a competent style. After a long career of directing music videos, Russell Mulcahy calls upon all his experience to put Highlander together where he is able to prove his true value as a feature filmmaker. In terms of story, since the premise is a rather simple one which serves as the front for a series of sword fights, the plot structure really assists Highlander. It's difficult to make a film which flips back and forth between past and present so consistently yet maintain a comprehensive and sensible narrative, but Russell Mulcahy is able to do that which pays him a lot of credibility as a filmmaker. He integrates in all the themes really well, making the film meaningful enough and rich in atmosphere. But as a music video director, Russell Mulcahy is best suited as the director of Highlander due to his keen eye for electric imagery. As the cast are unable to convincingly convey the Scottish nature of the story, the scenery and production design are left to do that. The locations used to film Connor MacLeod's early life are beautiful because they are genuine highlands to match the film's title, and even though the sky is grey during these scenes Russell Mulcahy works with this so that it matches the grim nature of the atmosphere. As well as that, the colour scheme is not blurry or rough but rather appropriate in making the setting feel all the more convincing. The overall colour scheme in Highlander is impressive as there is a rich use of shadow to capture the dark modern day setting, and yet the camera captures everything with a heavily tinted use of blue lighting to capture a combination between mystical and technologically advanced moods. Highlander is a film rich with feeling, and the look of everything is just astounding.The cinematography is the greatest visual aspect of Highlander. During every single scene, the cinematography in Highlander finds new ways to be atmospheric. The camera always takes wide perspectives on things so that the focus is always in the center of shots but the distance is great enough to convey the appropriate mood. It makes use of grand scale shots to capture the extensive quality of the scenery or the large scale of the battles, dutch angles to capture a sense of imbalance and most notably extensive tracking shots to give the film a truly epic feeling. Highlander feels like such a large scale film for a low budget production, and its cinematography is such a brilliant asset. The editing is also powerful because it is quick enough to convey intensity during the more powerful scenes without blurring the experience. All this comes into play best of all during the action scenes. The style of the film is so consistent with atmosphere, but it all hits new heights during the sword fights because this is where the visual brilliance emphasizes the strong choreography of the film along with the soundtrack and more. Everything just comes together perfectly during the action scenes in Highlander, and they are spread out over the course of the film very nicely with consistently strong length and passionate involvement from the cast.The moderated use of visual effects is also a stylish touch. Since the visual effects in Highlander are low-budget and a bit cheesy, the fact that they are only used to illuminate a sense of light in the film most of the time seems appropriate. The best moment of all comes from the climax of the story where the cheesiness of the film goes into overdrive. The visual effects are clearly hand-drawn and the strings are visible, but the fantastical mood and incredible tensity in this scene combined with stlylish hand-drawn effects gives an awesome end to a top notch fight scene, solidfying awesome imagery into the mind of viewers. The soundtrack is also unforgettable. Boasting the presence of what is now my all time favourite Queen song, Highlander draws strength from the song "Princes of the Universe" which remains one of the most iconic things about the film. Many Queen songs are used in Highlander, and it is the most stylish and poetic use of their musical abilities in cinema since Flash Gordon in 1980. The orchestral sessions of the film are powerful in capturing the sweeping spectacle of the story, but it is the Queen songs which put energetic spirit into the film and emphasize the drama with style and passion. The way that the music is used at some of the most sentimental moments in the film make the drama seem true and not just like cheap semantics. So Highlander is an unforgettable treat on the ears just as it is on the eyes.And even with a simplistic story, the cast in Highlander manage to illuminate unprecedented level of skill in their characters.Christophe Lambert is the perfect casting decision for the titular role of Connor MacLeod. The man is a very accomplished physical actor which he proves in Highlander with his extensive abilities to do so many stunt and sword fights even with profound myopia. The man is virtually blind without his glasses, and yet he achieves success in so many awesome action scenes. His myopia is a major benefit because it gives him a mystical stare, a feeling of eyes which have seen horrors and achievements unimaginable to man. This gives the character an unprecedented serious appeal, and it compensates for the fact that the man is unable to pick an accent to settle on. Christophe Lambert could not more obviously be anything but Scottish, but this adds to the cheesy 1980's elements of Highlander while capitalizing on his serious dedication to the part. He is a born cult movie actor, and he gets into the perfect mindset to capture the fantastical nature of the subject matter and match the atmosphere. Christophe Lambert is a handsome and accomplished physical actor and an awesome man of action, and his serious nature combined with his iconic cheesy gimmicks prove him to be an extremely charismatic lead for Highlander in a performance which he has still not topped to this day.Sean Connery is an amazing addition to the cast. Following in the footsteps of Christophe Lambert, Sean Connery is featured in Highlander as another actor who cannot achieve the proper accent he was meant to. This just makes Highlander all the more better because it puts a recurring theme into the cast, and Sean Connery is a genial presence in general. Seeing the man dressed up like Zorro and training Christophe Lambert is awesome for an actor of such a grand legacy because he brings a strong sense of wisdom to his role as well as a skillful set of swordsman abilities. Sean Connery has a relatively brief role in Highlander, but the way he commands his line delivery and his sword with extreme dramatic tension all while dressed up in red velvet tights makes his relevance to the film so high profile that it feels like he is on screen for much longer. Sean Connery is just a blessing in Highlander, and he takes the role extremely seriously while having a clear sense of fun in the part. It is clear because he brings comic energy to the film at times, proving that he finds drama and comedy in Highlander which lightens the mood one minute as easily as it intensifies it the next.Clancy Brown is an awesome antagonist. With such a tall stature, Clancy Brown is intimidating from the surface before he finds more to do. He has a thin role, and he delivers perfectly on it because his deep, booming voice has a real sense of power-hungry evil to it. As well as that, he has a stare similar to Christophe Lambert and remarkable skills with the sword which pins him into action scenes which really test him. He passes with flying colours. Decked out in battle armour and Mad Max-style leather gear, Clancy Brown is a straight-up strong antagonist for Highlander which he captures with a sadistic passion.Roxanne Hart also carries a strong dramatic flair. Being the major character of the film who is nothing but serious, Roxanne Hart risks walking a melodramatic path in Highlander. But due to her dedication for uncovering the mystery of Russell Nash, she conveys a strong sense of determination in the role which progressively develops into her becoming the subject of romantic interest in the story. Her chemistry with Christophe Lambert is passionate and yet gentle, bringing the romantic themes of the film to life and making the underlying themes in the story truly come with feeling. Roxanne Hart is an effective supporting presence.So Highlander is a wonderfully stylish film packed with 1980's fun and awesome action scenes, but those with true appreciation for the film will even embrace the underlying dramatic and romantic themes along with the passionately energetic charisma of Christophe Lambert and Sean Connery as well as Queen's amazing soundtrack work.

It's a pretty moving film about being alone & forgotten by everyone & the one place he felt like he mattered was in the ring. Not gonna lie, might've teared up a few times. His scenes with Evan Rachel Wood were pretty intense & well acted.
