Half Moon Street
Dr. Lauren Slaughter, a research fellow at the Arab-Anglo Institute in London is utterly frustrated by her job. To supplement her income, she starts moonlighting at the Jasmine Escort Service, where she has more control over men and money than she does at the office. On one of her 'dates', Lauren meets the politician Lord Bulbeck who is trying to mediate a peace accord between the Arabs and Israelis. Bulbeck falls in love with his escort, and unwittingly, Lauren becomes a pawn in some very dirty politics.

(gb) wrote: In "Day of the Falcon," Thurkette(Corey Johnson), an oil company scout, finds oil in the otherwise barren Arabian Desert. That comes as news to Emir Nesib(Antonio Banderas) who at first does not see what the big deal is. But once he does see the possibilities for modernization, he comes around. The only problem is the oil is in a no-man's land that Nesib agreed with Sultan Amar(Mark Strong) not to go near some years before.As historical fiction, "Day of the Falcon" fares pretty well in displaying an example of nation building with the help of a neat montage while also demonstrating how true it is that any new technology is applied first towards military and sex. But as drama, not so much. Not only is the movie heavily contrived but it seeks to use paper thin characters to desperately search for a middle way between rampant materialism and fanatic beliefs. It's sad because there might be a fourth way in taking a more environmental stance. When Nesib says all he needs is the air and the sun, he does have a point.
(fr) wrote: a hard movie to watch, solely due to its topic about a man/woman who doesn't know what to do with him/ herself leading to rape and prostitution. though i expected it to be more disturbing and less heartwarming it still managed to be a triumph of foreign film making.
(mx) wrote: 4-star action with a 2-star storyline equals a 3-star movie.
(es) wrote: Really really boring. I suppose that's the whole point of the movie though to get an inside look of what it's really like to be a cop and show that it's not all fun and games. I couldn't sit through more than 21 minutes of this thing so I should probably watch the whole thing before writing about it but i'm pretty sure that if the synopsis for the movie was a little more interesting then the rest of the movie would be too. But for me it wasn't.
(au) wrote: Capturing the Friedmans is the reality that life is not what it seems it is. A documentary capturing people alleged of acting badly, the film joins the dots of guilt making patterns according to what one sees and wants to see. Regerttably, well worth seeing.
(it) wrote: An inspirational movie for anyone who wants more
(nl) wrote: It ended too quickly and poor. Could have been such a better ending.
(au) wrote: Saw some of it on tv, and it looked enjoyable enough. Worth seeing all the way through.

(fr) wrote: Set in the midst of the Japanese Civil War, UGESTU tells the tale of two greedy men who risk the lives of their families for their own personal gains. Genjuro trades the life of a farmer to sell his pottery in the local townships, while Tobei foolishly fights to become a samurai to serve in the war. Their wives ask for nothing more than a simple life, but the men's selfish ambition leads them each to ruin. Kenji Mizoguchi's classic tale of karmic revenge is a masterpiece of modern art, and one of the defining films in the canon of Japanese cinema. The elegant cinematography and beautiful period setting show all of the same style and grace as the works of Akira Kurosawa, without whom the film might never have been made. It is built on the harrowing character drama between two families, and only lightly touches on the supernatural elements of the plot. While Mizoguchi sets the stage with his superb direction, it is the transcendent performances by the entire cast that draw the audience into their unfortunate circumstances. UGETSU is an exceptional human tragedy that is widely considered to be one of the greatest films ever made.-Carl ManesI Like Horror Movies
