Love Always, Carolyn torrent reviews

Nick U (br) wrote: Netflix 7/5/14 A sad story that really conveys the pressure and difficulty living in that area of the world can bring. This was a really good and compelling movie.

Kelly K (kr) wrote: A cool little movie about four best friends revisiting their pasts as they get ready for their very unsure, and complicated futures.

Fraser H (au) wrote: A very good account of the resistance in Nazi-occupied Paris, and it doesn't flinch from mentioning the large number of French people who collaborated with the Germans.

Michael S (us) wrote: It has been quite a while since a film so thoroughly entranced me. From the first of it's 37 shots, I was hooked into a world that could very well only exist within the realm of film. Other styles simply wouldn't be able to capture the graceful power put on display here. Tarr is certainly a film maker's sort of film maker and it would be difficult to recommend this one to casual audiences, but if you like fully original and challenging allegorical works. This film is nearing classical perfection.

Bloodmarsh K (ca) wrote: Could have been a decent ride, if they had just stuck to the competition - but they felt the need to throw in a sub-plot. So, 'American Flyers' just ends up being another half-assed tearjerker, right down to its Rocky-esque theme song, with below average performances, even by Costner, who just simply isn't the kind of lead to pull off a sympathetic character.

Virgilio L (nl) wrote: Its a pretty amazing film for 1954, a nice interpretation of Carmen

Patrik T (au) wrote: Excellent Ealing comedy shot the same year as my favourite: Whisky galore. The story is great and the acting too but it is not as anarchistic and seductive as Whisky galore. Still worth watching.

Julia L (gb) wrote: This movie is a fictional reconstruction of a short period in the life of Baker, during the 60s. Starting with Chet in an Italian jail in 1966, the story quickly moves to New York, where Chet is invited to play himself in a documentary about his life. Then follows one of the most amazing scenes I ever saw.Opening as a black & white flashback, we see a young Chet in 1954, playing very cool in Birdland, with Miles Davis and Dizzie Gillespie in the audience. In the backstage we see what should be Baker's initiation to heroin, but we discover that the scene is actually part of the documentary.Brilliant film-making is made by such scenes conveying all the magic of cinema. The story continues with Chet trying to rebuild his "career" with a help of a female artist, unfortunate enough to be attracted by his relatively good looks and melancholic charm. The pair moves from New York to California, where Chet swear to be clean and ready to play some serious jazz.Unfortunately, Chet was the master of all junkies, unreliable, selfish and self-destructive. His girlfriend wisely dumps him and off he goes to enjoy the company of heroin until the day he died.I am not a jazz fan and never heard any of the music Baker played, so I cannot comment about the remarks about the music not being good enough or even detrimental to the movie. For me it was a very well written and executed film, with a solid plot and good performances.PS: as far as "blackening the reputation" of Baker... I never understood why junkie musicians should be idolized. The history of contemporary music is paved with unpleasant, self-destructive characters who had exceptional musical skills. Egotism does not make them any less talented, but certainly does not add to their charm. If you want to see what years of heroin addiction do to the body, just check the photos of Chet from his early 20s until the end of his life. The crevasses on his face mirrors the destruction of his internal organs....
