(gb) wrote: Blacklisted American director Jules Dassin made this "rough and tumble" film about the life of crime in France. The censorship in France was not what it was in Hollywood at the time. The central character Tony (Jean Servais) let's his machismo fly in beating up his former girlfriend. Tony has just done time in the slammer, so at first declines to be a part of a new heist his friends and partners in crime propose, but then realizing he has nothing to lose he goes along for one tremendous final haul of jewels. It is an ensemble character piece other than the impressive gimmick of the lengthy silent heist itself. Dassin himself plays the Italian safe-cracking expert. Despite all their carefully laid plans, which are fascinating to watch, mistakes, retribution, and death catch up eventually with these men who live by violence.
(ca) wrote: None of the top "critics" proclaiming this movie a "classic" seem to address the blatant racism or at the very least the necessity of Sherman's actions and the burning of Atlanta.... They praise the acting and direction w/o questioning the blatant idiocy of it's message... Atlanta/The south needed to be burned the same as using the nuke in Japan.... The South's radicalism needed to be stopped or we would face years of more fighting and deaths on both sides. Performances aside this is a terrible example of exonerating the Souths racist past....

I always enjoy watching this breezy little film, first the gags are very funny and the film has a sweet love story at the center...secondly, we get to see New York in the 1920's! It was especially fun seeing Coney Island..all the rides that people were going on were quite eye opening. It's like being transported back in time, the film is a piece of history in that sense. Thirdly, we get to see Babe Ruth! How many films have Babe Ruth in them?! It's a very funny scene too..when he makes the mistake of getting into Harold Lloyd's taxi, one of the most memorable scenes in the film for sure. I would reccommend this film as a good introduction into silent films because it is such a fun film to watch, anyone can enjoy this film. Even my mom who has never seen a silent film before, was surprised by how much she liked it. The language the film speaks is universal..that's the one thing that makes silent films stand out even today-the actors didn't need to speak. They conveyed everything through facial expressions and body language. Anyone from any country can understand what is happening onscreen. What i love about silent films is the simplicity. It's human emotion shown with in such a simple manner, for instance in this film..Harold and his girlfriend are shown to hitch a ride in the back of a truck after he loses all his money. Through their gestures they convey their feelings for eachother and how they want to get married ..they move some things around, they make a little room showcasing what their home would be like. It was such a simple thing but speaks a univeral message. No sound was needed to get that message across. It was just so sweet and tender, silent films just have the tendecy to touch your heart like that and this film is no exception.

(ru) wrote: This is a film I've always had a soft spot for. It's a fairly standard mob story about Sean Penn returning to his old Hell's Kitchen neighborhood, finding his greasy haired childhood friend, Gary Oldman, the #2 man in the Irish mob and his older brother, Ed Harris, now the mob boss of the Kitchen. Harris is looking to move up in the world and is starting to align himself with the Italian mob, though Oldman is a wild card who could mess things up. There's also Harris and Oldman's younger sister, Robin Wright, who's doing everything she can to leave the Kitchen and the criminal life behind, but then becomes involved with Penn. Director Phil Joanou is a director I've loved ever since "Three O'Clock High" and regularly made smart and visually arresting films, this one fitting that bill as well. Jordan Cronenweth provided some amazing photography and paints the Hell's Kitchen setting with rich vivid colors. Ennio Morricone did the score (one of his last big American films) and the film was the sole effort by playwright Dennis McINtyre, who died shortly after completing the screenplay. I've read that David Rabe did some rewrites on the screenplay, which may account for some of the more more overwritten speechifying moments in the film that take you out of the gritty dialogue that makes up the rest of the film. There also a good supporting cast that includes John Turturro, Burgess Meredith (in a great one scene performance), R.D. Call (as Harris' very scary henchman), Joe Viterelli as the Italian mob boss and John C. Reilly loser friend of Oldman and Penn's. Reilly was very memorable in "Casualties of War" but it was this film that really made me think this guy can really act and made me remember the guy. Watching this film almost 25 years later, it still holds up and it really makes me want to see a new phone from director Phil Joanou. It's not a perfect film, but it's got great atmosphere, some terrific performances (especially by Oldman and Harris), a great Morricone score, and is a visually sticking film. This is a must see for fans of mob films for fans of Gary Oldman.
