(fr) wrote: Performances are great, soundtrack is catchy and I really thought it was an interesting way to film a story, focusing on scenes with few dialogues and most expressions from the actors. The script is very promissing too, about a man who leaves his family behind and goes to Berlin to stay with a man he met after a tragic accident at Praia do Futuro. On the other hand, this way of filming, which remined me a lot of Terrence Malick's "To The Wonder", bothered me a lot and it never connected me with the story. To be honest, this film left a huge empty space in my head because I couldn't understand very well what happended to the characters. In the end, I had nothing to reflect about. In other words, it's as if the script wasn't very well developed on screen. It's a shame.

(br) wrote: An interesting sci-fi horror. The oceans have dried up and the world is just a chemical wasteland. A drifter gets more than he bargained for when he buy a rare robotic helmet as gift for artist. M.A.R.K. 13 is the result. Taken from the Bible, Mark 13:20 "No flesh shall be spared". Robotic rampage, gory results. Pretty impressive sci-fi with expert visuals, some pretty nice music and overall tone. Richard Stanley should make more movies.

(kr) wrote: Even without a ton of dialogue, Clint Eastwood earns my attention in Pale Rider based on pure charisma and stature. He's done many great westerns, but this one ranks up there among his best.Of the many interesting things about a lot of Eastwood's westerns is that he often plays a wandering mysterious figure who happens to come upon conflict. Pale Rider is no different. This time, Eastwood is known as 'The Stranger' and 'The Preacher' who decides to help a small village of people from miners who intend to take over their land. For all intents and purposes, this feels a whole lot like a fresh take on the Seven Samurai structured story, but with only one bada** man.If it wasn't obvious already, I'm very high on Eastwood's performance here. He seems like a humble and honest man in his mannerisms but when push comes to shove, no one can take him in a gun battle. The supporting cast is formidable for the story they're telling. But besides some fun Richard Kiel moments, and an interesting 3rd act arrival from John Russell, the cast is really nothing to ride home about.Touting the lone two female characters are Carrie Snodgress and Sydney Penny as a mother and daughter from the village the Preacher is trying to protect. Although I think their performances are solid, some of the character decisions made them feel much more hollow and more down the line of clichd females in film, sadly. Not to mention the unnecessary romantic angles Eastwood took with his direction of them.In terms of a western, Pale Rider hits all the beats you want. It has a compelling lead, high stakes, and one amazing gun-blazing final scene. If you're looking for another well-strung western from Eastwood, this is the film for you, even if some of the supporting characters and shoe-stringed romance misses the mark completely.+Eastwood as the Preacher is gold+Final battle+Fun appearances from Richard Kiel and John Russell-Romance angle is botched8.6/10
