One and a half years before the begin of the Second World War during the annexation of Austria in March of 1938, Hitler conceived the megalomaniac idea of creating the largest European art center in his home town of Linz. At the beginning of the war on the 1st of September 1939, not only did his armies advance but also his art thieves began to fan out in their great foray of art plundering; an expedition on a previously unheard of scale began. Not only did the task forces of diverse National Socialist organizations pillage the occupied countries; Nazi bigwigs like Goering also took whatever they felt was valuable. This documentary includes the long and eventful journey of an exceptional masterpiece of European art: the Ghent Altar, created by van Eyck. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Three years later, when the still physically and emotionally damaged Max gets a second chance at his old nemesis when Jacob's teenage son (Elyes Gabel), clearly following in his father's footsteps, winds up in a hospital in police custody after a botched robbery, prompting Jacob to return from his comfortable retirement in Iceland. The ensuing cat-and-mouse game, in which Jacob is aided by his longtime older mentor Roy Edwards (Peter Mullan), becomes increasingly complex, as Max finds himself caught up in a shady conspiracy between politics and the upper reaches of the police department that may involve his chief Commander Thomas Geiger (David Morrissey)..."Welcome to the Punch" has the looks of a crime caper in the style of Michael Manns "Heat" in the opening sequence, but fails to deliver the rest of the running time. The movie is blend, not very intriguing, somewhat boring and under developed in several areas. Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian rated it 2/5 stars and called it an ambitious but predictable film that "runs out of steam" by the end. Frank Scheck of The Hollywood Reporter wrote, "But despite its fast pacing and well-staged action set-pieces, the film fails to make much of an impression." That is what I felt as well. The ambition might have been there, the cast was there, but the story and end result was not there. My only treat in "Welcome to the Punch" was the lovely Andrea Riseborough.

Allan C (jp) wrote: Wonderful bit of Americana that features the final and most mature performance by James Dean. The sprawling nearly four hour film follows Texas cattleman Rock Hudson taking his new bride, Elizabeth Taylor, to his ranch from her posh east coast lifestyle. That's just the opening for this sprawling generational story about the transition from cattle to old and the cultural changes that went with it. The film tackles America's transition and evolution on issues of racism, sexism, and classism all through the films sprawling story involving sibling rivalries, love triangles, big business, parenting, growing old, and good old fashioned western elements. Directed by George Stevens, who was notorious for endlessly shooting films, seems particularly meticulous in his shot set ups in the film and they are all just gorgeous and to great effect. Hudson and Taylor are fine in the leads (my second favorite Taylor performance after "A Place in the Sun"), but it's Dean who steals the show as a ranch hand who strikes it big as one of the first Texan's to hit it big with oil and consequentially becomes a bigger man than his former boss Hudson. Dean's character goes from one of his familiar impetuous youth type of roles to one that an older successful man wallowing in regrets. It's a terrific character arc and is one that really steal the show from Hudson's for typical arc of overcoming his old fashioned views on the world. The huge cast also includes Carroll Baker, Chill Wills, Mercedes McCambridge, Dennis Hopper, Sal Mineo, and Rod Taylor. A true American film classic.
