Honor and Glory

Honor and Glory

This historical film by Hynek Bočan touches upon the indecisiveness of the Czech nation, ready to bend the backbone in face of foreign rule. Situating the story at the close of the Thirty Year War enabled the depiction of the misery of the people that affects even an impoverished aristocratic milieu. Rudolf Hrušínský appears here in the role of an indecisive knight, persuaded for a long time and in vain to join the anti-Habsburg movement. The story does not only captivate through the depiction of manifold human characters, intrigues and sycophancy, but also through the circumstances ruling over the devastated farmstead, sunk in mud and crudeness. One of the best films with an updating tendency has come into being here, rightly being named along the such greats as Kladivo na čarodějnice (Witches' Hammer).

Jim H (jp) wrote: In general, to avoid "spoiler reviews," I try to spend most of my time talking specifically about act one and talk in generalities about acts two and three. Act one of Dot the I sucks. We get relatively uninteresting characters, and it is obvious that the film is trying to set up a thriller plot-line, but we're never given any real clues to build the suspense.Acts two and three rock! The thriller plot-line manifests and turns this film into a brutal version of The Shape of Things. I especially liked the satire of the independent film industry, and that's about all I can say without spoiling the prestige.Verbeke is a beautiful, doe-eyed innocent with a flash of the bad girl here and there; she makes for an alluring screen presence, but I don't see much depth in her performance. D'Arcy is fantastic in acts two and three, but he's as boring as the film in act one. In the few Bernal films I've seen, he does a Mexican imitation of Jim Carrey and Zach Braff, but he is able to keep that annoying side of his acting under control for most of Dot the I.Overall, if it were possible to skip the first forty-five minutes and still understand the film, I'd suggest it.

Mark D (fr) wrote: Very good Gialli with Lazenby excelling (hard to imagine i know) despite being dubbed into American. Pre Dont look now which shares certain elements, only with the gialli gore and aesthetic.

JamesMasaki R (gb) wrote: Like a cross between "King Kong" and "Little Shop Of Horrors", Britain's "Konga" is a silly shitty movie. The effects are very bad, the science is absurd, and Michael Gough trying to get it on with a young college girl was just creepy disturbing to watch. But the absurdity of it all is what actually makes it so fun to watch.

Dann M (ca) wrote: From director Tony Scott comes the exciting and intense thriller Spy Game. When CIA operative Tom Bishop is captured by the Chinese and left for dead his former handler attempts to rescue him. Robert Redford and Brad Pitt lead the cast and give excellent performances. And the script is especially well-written, particularly the dialog, and does a great job at developing the characters. Also, Scott's directing brings a lot of tension and suspense to the scenes. Smart and provocative, Spy Game is an incredibly engaging film.

Alicia A (mx) wrote: As a female that actually used to be an exotic dancer, I was expecting dancing that was centered around the beauty of the male body. In most strip clubs, the female is put on a stage/ pedestal and does extremely difficult pole tricks high above a mostly male audience. Men generally don't touch the women while they are performing and money comes pretty easy. I have never been to a male strip club, but I would think it's the same kind of situation. Good looking men are on stage doing their thing while women gaze upon them and throw up money. In Magic Mike XL, a good half hour of the movie was dedicated to the cheap tricks the men had to do to make their money. The slimed their greasy bodies and faces all over women in order to make the girls throw money to them one dollar at a time. One guy even had someone touch his penis and it looked like she gave him about two dollars for it. In most female strip clubs, this would have been illegal and the girl would have been fired and looked down upon by the managers and the rest of the girls. The men in this scene reminded me slightly of sex slaves the way that they were exploited and how the female owner of the strip club was using their sex appeal and charisma to make her own money. There was no protection for the guys and the girls seemed to be able to do and touch whatever they wanted. Yet somehow, everyone is cool with applauding this movie and many women have bragged about seeing it multiple times in the theaters.
