(fr) wrote: I liked the plot, although it has been done before. This must have been low budget because everything seemed amateurish, kind of like an old "Lost in Space" tv show. I would have liked to have seen this movie idea made with better quality acting, writing and setting/special affects. As it is, I'm being generous giving it 2 stars, mostly because I liked the idea and I like sci fy.

It then shifts to the present, say 2013, with what is going on with Lizzie Allen, both now and when she was much younger, say six years old. She has a therapist, Dr Fredericks, who uses hypnosis, not always with good results. Lizzie lives again in the house where she lived when she was a child. Dr Fredericks thinks something traumatic happened there when she was young. She's seeing daydreams and night dreams that are rather horrible. She has trouble remembering her childhood clearly. Ah, she used to have tea parties with a doll that survived the original Lizzie Borden era. She drinks a lot of wine and watches scary movies with the boy friend, and does not seem able to get her meds right. Then she sees (hallucinates) herself introducing the doll, Lucy, to her. Even worse, she sees the Lizzie Borden figure use an axe to kill her younger self. Dr Fredericks of course associates this with childhood memories and an attempt to resolve them in adulthood. The next day she goes off on the cable guy, has trouble shaving her legs safely, and hears things go bump in the night. Jason comes in as a masked burglar, and Lizzie does not take it well. Who would? Jason starts hearing the bump in the night; he gets out his stashed pistol and barely hides it in the living room. Maggie is Lizzie's new neighbor. She tries to help Lizzie break into part of the basement that the cable guy could not get to. They fail, but it gets Lizzie more comfortable swinging the axe that Maggie picked out. Jason manages to get into the basement, where he experiences more bump in the night phenomena. Dr Fredericks drops Lizzie as a patient, since she demands stronger meds, but will not confront her childhood issues. Maggie turns out not to be what she first said she was. Jason takes a turn for the worse, and Lizzie feels more and more alone. That is not the worst of it all. Will Lizze resolve her issues? Is there something supernatural going on here?--------Scores---------- Cinematography: 5/10 Dark, generally with low contrast, or slightly out of focus. There's a bit of camera jump as well. SFX were laughable. Sound: 9/10 Fine. Acting: 2/10 Most of the minutes of the show have Amanda Baker alone or in frame. So the movie sinks or swims with her, and I don't believe her performance. Leif Holt is pretty bad as well. Corbin Bernson was fine, but he was not onscreen all that much. Gary Busey has done much better in other movies. Screenplay: 0/10 The past and the present did not blend well here. For the movie to work, they did need to resolve clearly and effectively. The retelling of the 1892 story was not put together well either. The absurd ending was just too much.

Hanging the story around Henry Geldzahler curatorial work was a unique way to approach a massive subject. Unfortunately the heart of the story - Geldzahler's personality, desire and conflcts - was not developed enough for me to really enter his world. You could argue form mirrors content, but I thought the art had more soul and depth than the film.

(ag) wrote: Weird little film. What happens when one sibling (Or shall I say gender?) is preferred over another one. The psychological errors that can be inflicted upon the isolated ones. The ambiguity carries the film for a while, later it becomes a little cliche and predictable. The voice for the sex ed doll is perfectly chilling, and he's a sex ed doll for a reason.

(it) wrote: En af historiens bedste WWII-actiondrn, fremragende udtnkt af Alistair MacLean. Fyldt med overraskelser og twists, som holder vand hele vejen, og er umulige at gennemskue undervejs. Eastwood er dejlig sammenbidt, og Burton er (naturligvis) uovertruffen. Et klassisk mestervrk, alle br se.
(ru) wrote: Another of the big ensemble movies of the early 1930s, though this ensemble is a little less star-studded than "Grand Hotel" or "Dinner at Eight". However, the cast is wonderful and it's hard to go wrong with the great Walter Huston, the charming Pat O'Brien, and the lovely Constance Cumming.
(it) wrote: Biography of Cuban poet Reinaldo Arenas, this film follows his early starts then his exile from Cuba to the united states. It's very well shot by visual artist Julian Schnabel, well written & very different from most biographical films but it's an interesting film to watch.
