(us) wrote: Some folks just can't get into a film with characters that are really hard to like. Screw them. That's what swill like The Best of Me is for. Tougher-minded folks should line up for Listen Up Philip, an acid-tinged love letter to the New York literary scene from writer-director Alex Ross Perry. In only his third feature, following 2009's Impolex and 2011's The Color Wheel, Perry, 30, crafts a biting portrait of writing as one of the most brutal of arts. And he's also wickedly funny about it to boot.Jason Schwartzman is dynamite as Philip Lewis Friedman, the author of a hit first novel called Join The Street Parade. Philip is on the cusp of publishing his long-awaited second novel, with the even more pretentious title of Obidant, but he seems more determined than ever to sabotage himself royally. An unseen narrator, voiced by Eric Bogosian, offers a bitterly detached view of Philip as he spirals into self-destructon. One unfortunate victim of Philip's toxic mix of ego and self-loathing is his girlfriend Ashley (Elisabeth Moss, superb), a photographer whose profession and personal future may lie in Philip not being a part of it. The biggest enabler of Philip's ego is Ike Zimmerman (Jonathan Pryce), a pompous blend of art and arrogance a la author Philip Roth (his very name, Zimmerman, is a dig at Roth literary surrogate Nathan Zuckerman). Pryce digs into the role with biting relish, one of his finest screen hours. It's Ike who mentors Philip and secures him a teaching job at an upstate liberal-arts college where he can tower over those he deems lower than himself.In a bold move, Perry splits the focus among Philip, Ashley and Ike, allowing us to see their lives play out individually as well as with one another. I couldn't have loved the device more, coupled with evocative handheld Super 16 millimeter camerawork from Sean Price Williams. As the film takes Philip, Ike and Ashley right up to our faces, each actor deftly nails their role. Schwartzman, no stranger to playing smarmy bastards (see Rushmore and HBO's Bored To Death), fires on all cylinders as a rat who can't win against his greatest challenge: narcissism. Listen Up Philip will have you laughing and cringing in equal amounts, laughing till it hurts, and that's the point. If you can't take the joke, well, that's on you.

(de) wrote: End of Days is silly schlock akin to a b-movie with a big Hollywood budget. Without an original idea and feeling like it was forced out in order to meet the deadline of Y2K, the film really wastes the potential it had on a weird sexually charged, action ridden, mess. But it's Arnold versus Satan sooooo... I don't care!

(au) wrote: Excellent French movie! One of the better movies I have seen out of the last 100 or so movies I have watched. Others title this film anti war but I just call it a strange look at the dead. The dead of war that is. A french military man is obsessed with the "numbers" (numbers as in accounting -keeping track of) of causalities. So the characters in this movie are out there in the front at the end of WW working with the dead-literally- by the 100s and 1000s. The film deals with the military man and two women who seek their missing (or dead husbands) the film deals with the humanity of those involved. I found this a very compassionate story - not a boring moment for me. This is my first look at a film by Tavernier I am researching some other films of his to view. Highly recommended. four stars

(us) wrote: Good movie. Warner Oland almost makes you think he might be Chinese. I realized while watching this that Charlie Chan sometimes uses his "lack" of knowledge of English and Western customs to his advantage while investigating, in the same way David Suchet's Hercule Poirot did, or how Columbo acted dumber than he was to get information out of people. I also liked one of the methods of murder in this (the guy playing the violin)...it was quite ingenious and I don't think I've ever seen it done before. I'd have to say the only thing in this movie that detracted was the servant guy "Snowshoes". I think he was supposed to be there for comedy relief, but he was so over the top and his voice so annoyingly grating (as well as unintelligible...I had to turn on the subtitles to understand him) that he didn't fit with the serious suspense film it's supposed to be. I also missed that we didn't get to meet any of Charlie's numerous (and numbered) children in this one.

It's scary to think so much is out of one's control. There are moments in a match when the ball hits the top of the net, and for a split second, it can either go forward or fall back. With a little luck, it goes forward, and you win. Or maybe it doesn't, and you lose."
