In the Line of Fire
Veteran Secret Service agent Frank Horrigan is a man haunted by his failure to save President Kennedy while serving protection detail in Dallas. Thirty years later, a man calling himself "Booth" threatens the life of the current President, forcing Horrigan to come back to protection detail to confront the ghosts from his past.
Frank Horrigan is a secret service agent who keeps thinking back to November 22, 1963, when, as a hand-picked agent by President Kennedy, he became one of the few agents to have lost a President to an assassin when Kennedy died. Now, former CIA assassin Mitch Leary is stalking the current President, who is running for re-election. Mitch has spent long hours studying Horrigan, and he taunts Horrigan, telling him of his plans to kill the President. Leary plans to kill the president because Leary feels betrayed by the government -- Leary was removed from the CIA, and the CIA is now trying to have him killed. After talking to Leary, Horrigan makes sure he is assigned to presidential protection duty, working with fellow secret service agent Lilly Raines. Horrigan has no intention of failing his President this time around, and he's more than willing to take a bullet. White House Chief of Staff Harry Sargent refuses to alter the President's itinerary, while Horrigan's boss, Secret Service ... . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

The arguments regarding whether the monastery held a correct religion approved by God's Word is irrelevant; this beautifully shot jewel stands as another proof of the power of love towards humanity, as a parable of the Good Shepherd, as a moving feature film of great power without the need of resorting to melodramatic elements. Its universal message transcends political and religious boundaries.Remember that love is eternal hope.Monk Christian80/100

They're one of my favorite No Wave bands ever, and it's the only performance that was captured for this film that could be deemed above average. They play "Blonde Redhead" and I like it so much I would recommend seeing this on Netflix and skipping to that part. Or Youtube it, whatever. James Chance's band is pretty cool, too. I don't really care about the cameos, but this is a pretty endearing and cheeky portrait of a more hip and gritty area of New York City in the 1980's. It suffers from being kinda hazy and boring though, even for a movie that's only over an hour long. But then don't forget there's ARTO LINDSAY ARTO LINDSAY

Then it goes completely downhill and turns into a whole catalog of "your basic slasher clichs". I must admit that I was quite disappointed because the trailer promised so much more. The final thirty minutes consists of some killings and a lot of running around in an abandoned convent. It should have been so much better.

After all, I had just seen a movie (America America) that was woefully too long and painfully dull in some stretches. But Anne is never dull or boring, and the movie's running time is more of a blessing then anything else, because this is a fascinating story, the acting here is so good, that you don't realize the time whizzing by. Richard Burton is here playing Henry the Eighth (I am, I am, Henry the Eighth I am) who seriously needs some marriage counseling happening, as he goes through many wives at a drop of a hat, finding the feeblest excuse to hold his hat on. Genevive Bujold plays the ill-fated Anne Boleyn, the most famous of his wives. It's funny how I think I know everything I needed to know about these characters when I watched this, but I soon found out that I knew very little. According to the movie, Boleyn was adamantly opposed to the wedding at first. She was in love with someone else, and didn't want to give that up. The serious implications that Henry VIII would face when he divorced Queen Catherine is also discussed too. (And here I thought he had her killed!).. Burton and Bujold are fabulous here, it's quite amazing they didn't win Academy Awards for their performances here. The film is very nicely designed and laid out, with lots of apparent real locations. This was quite a delight!
