Land of Silence and Darkness torrent reviews

Calum R (it) wrote: I find that the best kind of films end up being the ones you approach knowing little about, with average-low expectations - that was my initial approach to 'A Monster Calls', and boy was I wrong.A film that plays out as a fantasy-drama, a coming-of-age tale and a family melodrama, 'A Monster Calls' opened as any typical coming-of-age drama does; introductions to the characters were made and we were given a brief glimpse into their daily lives, however as it progresses, we are suddenly faced with a complex and emotionally-stirring plot that piles on layers of heartfelt drama, intriguing character development and gorgeous CGI and cinematography that accompany the tale of a young boy who evades his complicated daily life by escaping to a world of fantasy tales told by the titular monster, voiced by Liam Neeson, in yet another CGI role made perfectly for his booming voice (after success as Aslan).There are many I have known who have seen this film and have afterwards shed a tear, and rightfully so, the story is one of the most moving and encapsulating I've seen in a long time, bringing in elements of dark fantasy to compliment the main plot. The visuals throughout are stunning in all mediums, beautiful cinematography, visually-striking CGI and gorgeous animated watercolour scenes. All-in-all, 'A Monster Calls' might just be the ultimate "small" movie of 2016.

Tim S (nl) wrote: This is a solid crime thriller.

Michael S (us) wrote: This is absolutely fascinating! Best watched with the accompanying MST3K riffs.

Andrey B (fr) wrote: Firmly acted and directed political thriller.

Ricardo H (jp) wrote: I commend the valiant effort of whoever put the film together, and I'm sure it was a work of love. However, unfortunately, sometimes the best wishes are not enough to produce something good and watchable. The movie has too many jumps that we are expected to fill in without enough knowledge of the characters or the circumstances. Somehow, I felt confused a lot of the time because I wasn't sure if what I was watching was the future, the present, or the past. Didn't like it at all, do not recommend it!

Markus S (nl) wrote: A humorous yet surprisingly accurate portrayal of an African-American actor's quest for meaningful roles in Hollywood.

Aseem K (gb) wrote: it has its moments... brilliant moments.. the premise is first class.. few old friends have a re-union... whole story is inside a home with no outside connections.. there a couple of new guests... there are old tensions and a few surprises... the build up takes its time, but is very effective and top rate..

Katherine O (ca) wrote: I've always loved this movie from the first time I saw it as a young girl. Bette Davis' mother's love angle is moving and the Glenn Ford's humorous obsession with luck goes from funny to making him a wreck. The characters are so classic you can't help but enjoy such a good movie. Long before sex, violence and lanquage over ran films...this is a winner.

Keira R (ag) wrote: Definitely dug deep into the MGM vault w/ this all-star cast w/ the likes of Greta Garbo, Lionel AND John Barrymore, Wallace Beery & Joan Crawford, beautifully acted by all. I confess I wasn't paying attn to every detail in the film, but you don't have to. You'll know what happens. Greta Garbo was HOT! Seriously. John Barrymore was 'Clark Gable-like' handsome...Joan Crawford was cheery (I know, I don't think anyone ever said that about Crawford), but she was. I liked her character the best. Several stories were taking place at the 'Grand Hotel' -- Garbo's a temperamental principal dancer who falls for John Barrymore's "Baron." Joan Crawford's "stenographer" character befriends an accountant down on his luck (Lionel Barrymore) & Wallace Beery's character, a magnate going for his last hoorah...the last line of the film is great: "Grand Hotel, where nothing ever really happens."
