This documentary was made three years after Jimi Hendrix's untimely death. At the time it was an example of how a visual biography should be done, but some of the information in it needs revising in the light of new information uncovered over the years. The film contains concert footage spanning the Marquee in 1967 to his last UK performance at the third Isle of Wight festival in 1970; along the way we see classic performances at Monterey (1967), Woodstock (1969), Fillmore East (1969/70), and Berkeley (1970). A double album was released to tie-in with the film, containing the complete performances in the film, along with interviews with people in the film (not necessarily the same interviews). The film is worth seeing for Jimi's performances, and to hear what his contemporaries have to say about him (Eric Clapton, Mitch Mitchell, Lou Reed, Mick Jagger, Pete Townsend, and others).

Jim H (de) wrote: When the man who tried to rape her is released from prison, a woman elicits the help of a man who has sworn off violence.This is how not to do exposition. Three different characters tells the same story about what happened before the film's events, and this isn't like Rashomon in which the characters' stories differ. Then, we have a tangential murder of a schoolteacher, which is a plot line that falls through the cracks until the deus ex machina, and four other characters who go on a date. The basic point is this: the story, penned by John Patrick Shanley, is a mess.John Turturro plays a great street tough, and he brings humanity to a role that requires him to do inhuman things - often without explanation. I also like Tim Robbins's performance even though his character is inconsistent.Overall, I think this film is about violence and responsible responses to it, but it's hard to tell because of all the bad writing.
David E (it) wrote: Being one of the most controversial films of all time, I can see why this film is shocking. This is one hell of a film (by hell, I mean hell for the heroine): Jennifer gets raped (3 times!; poor girl) & is left traumatized. When she recuperates, she seeks vengeance (wouldn't anybody?). The deaths of the 4 guys that attacked her are quite brutal, the settings are ironically innocent, but the acting is quite mediocre. The rape is unbearable for those to watch & I felt very sorry for Jennifer (but at least she got her revenge). If you want to watch this film, go ahead. For those that don't want to, then don't. For those that are reluctant, take your time. As for me, I pretty much will never watch this film again.

Akira Kurosawa. He takes his time to fully develop his main character. This film has many subplots of the patients, but it has positive effects on the main character. But the film isn't just about the main character. It has strong social commentaries about poverty, social status, etc.Yuzo Kayama is very good, but Toshiro Mifune is great! His charisma bust out of the screen, and grabs our attention even from the first shot. He is born to play this role. Everyone know how great director dir. Kurosawa is, so don't need to waste my words. It mite be boring and bit annoying to follow in the first act, but it will slowly engage you. by the midpoint, you'll love every characters. I recommend this film to everyone.

This concerns a journey through life's turmoil, although without the presence of Nicholson-much less acerbic. Belle Isle is a beautiful, tender story about characters you really care about. Like Bucket List, this movie is about second chances in life, making the best of what time you have left. I appreciated that it had a theme for every stage of life, although it centered on Monte Wildhorn (Freeman). The intersection of his life with the newly-divorced mother and children of varying ages next door was the perfect complement and foil for Wildhorn. The film does venture into schmaltzy, Hallmark territory, but just go with it. Allowing yourself simply to be inspired and entertained won't hurt.One criticism: The sort-of romantic angle between Monte Wildhorn and Charlotte O'Neil (Virginia Madsen) seemed forced, not plausible or realistic to me. Madsen was quoted as saying that her on-screen relationship with Freeman (albeit brief) was the first on-screen romance in his long, storied career. Kudos to Reiner, then for thinking outside the box.
