It is less about the life of a band on the road than it is about brotherly love and the nature of expectations. Music is almost besides the point, but the great live footage doesn't hurt.

Sebastian O (au) wrote: This film tries to force the audience to understand the message that is all too easy to understand, making the director feel needy. Insensitive jokes towards autism, regardless of how intentional the insensitivity, made the message lose its meaning, and made the film seem hypocritical. The first half of the film was somewhat entertaining, but in spite of the search for the president being the most intriguing premise, it was executed poorly, and made the film a dull waste of a viewing.

John D (es) wrote: An exceedingly average film which goes nowhere. John Cusack plays an overly sympathetic character named Max Rothman, a former artist who lost his arm in WWI, fighting for Germany. He then becomes an art dealer and meets a young Adolf Hitler who is striving to become an artist. Max befriends the blustery Hitler even amid his anti-semetic leanings because he believes that he could be a successful artist. Max's character is bland and boring helped by Cusack's uninteresting portrayal, but the actor who plays the young Hitler, Noah Taylor, is very good. That said, this fictional account, is simplistic and barely scratches at the surface of anything remotely curious. Not a bad film, yet nothing remarkable by any measure.
Niloo R (kr) wrote: this is probably my favourite mike leigh film yet. I think a lot of the problems I have with Leigh's work were still present, but to a lesser extent. I find Leigh's films tend to have characters that turn into caricatures because we don't understand why they have all the crazy quirks that they do, and we can't relate to them on a human level. There's also rarely a coherent sense of plot, which may be a european aesthetic, but to me, just makes the films feel scattered. This one was better I think, because Leigh got out of his own way a bit, and actually revealed a bit about his characters by the end, and the resulting emotion was wonderful. I definitely think Leigh knows his characters extremely well, and he knows what he's doing, but that maybe his vision isn't always expressed in the best way, because a lot of times i find myself trying to grasp what it is. then again, i've only seen a few of his works yet, and already, this being my 3rd film, i feel like i get it more, so maybe i'll understand his style and artistry once i see a more coherent collection of his work.
Conner R (es) wrote: I wouldn't exactly call it a masterpiece, especially considering it was written by Tennessee Williams and directed by Elia Kazan. It's got good performances, but Carroll Baker is really the only one that stands out as great. I think certain elements of the story are repetitive, almost unusual for Williams. It's as good as it can be, it's just not something you can fall in love with like Streetcar or Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. I would only recommend it to hardcore fans.
