(au) wrote: Pleasant enough without creating any real dramatic tension, The Hundred-Foot Journey is the story of a young Indian chef who's family opens a restaurant in a small French village. Over the road from where they open is a Michelin starred restaurant, specialising in traditional French cuisine. The movie tells of the initial rivalry between the two establishments and the gradual building of cultural recognition, cooperation and acceptance that develops. It is harmless enough with a good central message that is unsubtly hammered home. Helen Mirren does her best "poe-faced" acting as the owner of the French establishment who has a gradual softening of her attitude while Om Puri is the head of the Indian family who has his own prejudices to face. Manish Dayal is a fairly lightweight leading man and I didn't really get much of a sense of passion from him in the role of chef, Hassan. At the end of the movie, I don't really feel I understood the cuisines of France or India any better than I did at the start and I certainly didn't pick up any further knowledge about what it is that makes us all tick but it had a least passed the time without pain or discomfort.....a sort of movie Mogadon.

(it) wrote: In many ways, if you add in sex scenes, Blame it on Rio has the potential of being a soft-core adult movie. The subject matter is very risky for an early 80's comedy. Michael Caine stars in and puts his reputation on the line as the comedic element in this adult drama. Although comedy is thrown into the mix from time to time, Blame it on Rio is in many ways, a dark comedy. Much of the night scenes are in fact dark. Too dark to some standards, you can hardly make out the actors on screen. The beach scene alone could have been re-shot due to stupidity in the lighting department. Valerie Harper also makes an appearance alongside a very young Demi Moore who, unlike the eye candy of the movie, Michelle Johnson is reserved. Since Rio, Michelle Johnson slowly faded away, returning to do a small role from time to time. Her popularity from Rio could have and should have made her a top actress / ornament in Hollywood. Sadly, much like this movie, it has lost its strong youth audience to other movies with more nudity and less comedy.

(ag) wrote: Since Jon Stewart vacated his post as longtime host of The Daily Show earlier this year, the internet has been rampant with articles speculating the famed comedian's next career move. Regardless of your political affiliations, it is safe to say that Stewart's presence is missed amongst the varying voices in the American political discourse. While only Stewart knows for sure what his next move will be, his directorial and screenwriting debut Rosewater may offer one plausible explanation.The film chronicles the story of Iranian-Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari as he is imprisoned in Iran for his coverage of the country's presidential election. The 2009 election resulted in outrage as reigning president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won a landslide victory over his independent reformist challenger Mir-Hossein Mousavi. Domestic protests soon erupted as many citizens felt that the election results were fraudulent. The government swiftly went into action, banning any media, public demonstrations, or other forms of resistance from being proclaimed.Maziar Bahari was covering these protests when he witnessed government violence against the peaceful demonstrators. Despite being warned by local contacts against filming any government reactions, Bahari's journalistic instincts moved him to capture the outrageous event. As it did with so many other reporters, the Iranian government soon intervened and imprisoned Bahari. For 115 days, the journalist endured merciless interrogations for simply reporting on the truth.Jon Stewart trades in his comedic sensibilities for this bare-knuckle look at journalistic injustice. Based upon Bahari's own book about his experiences during his incarceration, Rosewater paints a bleak picture of Iran's treatment of visiting journalists and its corrupt political system. Bahari's story shows the lengths that the country was willing to go to in order to maintain the propaganda of a compassionate and beloved leader. From a political standpoint, Stewart does an excellent job in creating outrage at Bahari's unjustified treatment. Unfortunately, brief glimpses at Bahari's pregnant wife who is waiting desperately for her husband to return to their London home, do little to humanize the situation. This denies the film of ever truly connecting on an emotional level. It ends up coming off as a well-informed but slightly cold news feature. Still, Stewart's penchant for revealing political commentary is well served in this medium and makes Rosewater an important achievement in what hopefully becomes a fruitful filmmaking career.
