(nl) wrote: Anti-war protests. Heated political arguments. Police brutality. Social inequality. Race Riots. Calls for violence as a way to set things right. No, I'm not describing the Middle East or some Third World country. I'm talking about the United States - and not in the present day, but in the mid-1960s. The American Civil Rights Movement and opposition to U.S. involvement in Vietnam were both at their zeniths, both yielding positive and negative results for the country and those most personally involved. Can you imagine if much of this turmoil converged where you lived - all at the same time - and directly affected your own family? That's the situation in the drama "American Pastoral" (R, 2:06).The script is by John Romano, based on the 1997 novel of the same name by Philip Roth, who based his main character on a real person - with some embellishments. And what a character Roth created! The Swede seemed to have it all! He was a star high school athlete (really, a hero and a legend in his hometown), he married a beauty queen (a former Miss New Jersey), he took over his father's thriving business (manufacturing high-end ladies' gloves), he had a house with land (in a very... pastoral setting), he and his wife had a loving, beautiful daughter to care for. What could be bad? All of it. At the 45th high school reunion of Swede's older brother, Jerry (Rupert Evans), he tells Swede's story to an old classmate, Nathan Zuckerman (Oscar nominee David Strathairn), a journalist who was overseas during the 1960s.Seymour "Swede" Levov (Golden Globe nominee Ewan McGregor) was the pride of the Jewish-American community in Newark (which nicknamed him "Swede" because of his Nordic good looks), but Swede's life became difficult after high school - and went downhill from there. Swede had to struggle to get his very traditional father (Oscar nominee Peter Riegert) to accept the Catholicism of his wife, Dawn (Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly), he struggled to keep his business viable in the face of declining customer demand (and being at the epicenter of the 1967 Newark race riots), and he struggled mightily with his daughter, Merry (played by Ocean James in Merry's childhood and by Dakota Fanning as a rebellious teenager). Merry dealt with a bad stutter, which clearly affected her confidence and self-esteem (besides the "problem" of having such a beautiful mother, as pointed out by Merry's psychologist, played by Molly Parker). But Merry's problems (and her parents' problems with Merry) had just begun.As she grew up, Merry became disillusioned with the world which she saw on TV as seemingly coming apart. She strongly sympathized with the Civil Rights Movement (especially its more radical elements) and the Vietnam anti-war movement (especially its more radical elements as well). She went from spewing hatred at President Johnson's image on the family's TV set to regularly taking the train into New York to commiserate with like-minded radicals. She rudely rebelled against all authority figures (including her own loving parents) and started talking openly about the need for a revolution in the U.S. One day, a local post office exploded, killing one man, and Merry... disappeared. Her anguished parents insisted that Merry couldn't have done such a thing... unless she was brainwashed and forced by others.Over time, the movie's characters display very different reactions to the post office bombing. The police and FBI are convinced that Merry did it and they follow the few leads that they have trying to find her. Dawn doesn't want to believe that her daughter committed this horrible act, but gradually accepts it, leading her to a nervous breakdown. Jerry tries to get his brother to deal with the probability that Merry is guilty. Swede, however, never gives up on his daughter. He'll never believe in Merry's guilt unless he hears a confession from her own lips. Either way, all he wants to do is bring his daughter home and he never stops looking for her. The unexpected appearance of a mysterious young woman named Rita Cohen (Valorie Curry), who says she knows Merry, ends with Swede more desperate and frustrated than ever - and putting increased stress on his relationship with Dawn. Regardless, Swede never ever quits."American Pastoral" is a unique combination of enlightening, frustrating, inspiring and depressing. I gained a greater understanding of what was going on during the Vietnam Era, how certain social issues intertwined and how all of this affected ordinary people. I was frustrated by the daughter's behavior - and by the way the movie glossed over any real explanation for her unlikely and extreme radicalization. I was inspired by Swede's determination and unconditional love for his daughter... but it was depressing to see what those admirable qualities did to his previously promising life. The story's somewhat shaky, but interesting, the direction of McGregor (directing his first feature) is mostly solid, the characters are compelling and this impressive ensemble of actors are all at the top of their games. This movie won't leave you feeling very pastoral, but it will teach you more about America - and the power of love. "B"
(de) wrote: Based on a graphic novel by the same name "Arrugas" tells the thought-provoking tale of Emilio, an old man whose family sends him into a home for the elderly after he starts having fits of memory loss. Reluctant to go, Emilio finds the home depressing with its clinical atmosphere. He avoids a staircase that goes to the floor above his ward, a place they take the patients who have lost their sense of reality.Emilio soon befriends some of the other patients in the home, making it all easier to bear. But with the contant presence of diappointment, an air of giving up and death, he soon starts to fear for his future and realize that most of what he was and did is truly in the past."Arrugas" addresses the experience of growing old powerfully, with raw, straightforward directness but also a deep sence of humanity. We truly get attached to all these different characters the film presents and we are devasted to feel them all slip away with their own pace. Every secong of the movie is grippingly intense yet tender and beautiful. Rarely does a film manage to be so honestly touching, filled with emotion and wisdom without a trace of exploitative sentimentalism. This 2d world feels more real than most cinematic creations, and it makes you face your own mortality in a way I've never quite encountered before.
(nl) wrote: QUITE POSSIBLY THE WORST ACTED MOVIE OF ALL TIME. The extremely poor acting made it difficult to stop watching. It was hypnotic. I kept watching thinking that it could not get worse. But it did. And it did. And it did. To think that it even made it to DVD is bewildering. Disorganized throughout-laughable casting-elementary script. Message to whomever paid to have the film made: PLEASE DO NOT MAKE ANOTHER MOVIE. Instead, donate your money to a worthy charity!
(ru) wrote: If you were a teenager watching this film purely for sex appeal, you will be sorely disappointed. Burlesque is the cinematic equivalent of plastic surgery, in that it's far uglier than people tend to think it is. As the story, I don't quite know what to say about it, other than it's a terribly clichd musical plot. There really isn't much of a story because the film drowns itself in a sea of poor man's porn and terrible pop musical numbers. The characters are all horrible to watch, and that's primarily because of terribly obnoxious performances and an atrociously bad script. I also find it impossible to take any of the characters, or the setting seriously, and the film does a very poor attempt at selling its cheesy concept. The way the film presents itself is as painful to the eyes as a celebrity with too much makeup and cosmetic surgery. It's obviously trying for old-fashioned glamour in a modern context, but it fails miserably because it simply doesn't work. All in all, it's less like a film and more like a two-hour music video for Cher. Either way, this unbearably dated and extremely campy film is a waste of your precious time.

Psychic vampires from beyond our solar system, who may or may not be part plant. Weird. But the Archduke of B-Movies, John Saxon is on the case, so no worries.
(gb) wrote: Focusing on two sides of the story, following Dr Barnes (stupid first name) Wallis (Michael Redgrave), an insular inventor trying to find a way to destroy some German dams, and Wing Commander Guy Gibson (Richard Todd) the heroic RAF man who has to lead the mission, gives The Dambusters a more interesting angle than some war films. I did enjoy this, despite a quite slow pace, mainly because Gibson/Todd is very charismatic, but I never got a feel that there was a war going on - we don't see any signs, not even blackout curtains, which makes it difficult to condone the huge-scale murder they are surely going to commit by bursting dams. There is also the matter of the dog, which steals all attention from what is going on, as I gleefully await Gibson to call it to him - could he have given it a worse or more offensive name? It is a little uncomfortable knowing that a lot of the characters are probably going to die, but I actually have no idea who does cop it because there are many of them and none are really developed, other than Gibson. This makes the poignant ending of the film a little confused. Still, if you like war films, then you should definitely catch this one.

It's just so lazy. The special effects are superb, yes, but the script and characters are horrendous. What a waste of a potentially good movie.
