Five short stories with contemporary settings. In New York, people are indifferent to derelicts sleeping on sidewalks, to a woman's assault in front of an apartment building, and to a couple injured in a car crash. A man, stripped of his identity, dies in bed with actors expressing his agony. A cheerful, innocent young man walking a city street in a time of war pays a price for this innocence. A couple talks about cinema while it watches another couple talk of love and truth on the eve of one character's return to Cuba. Striking students take over a university classroom; an argument follows about revolution or incremental change.

Even though her character is a bit of a nightmare, I really found her sympathetic as a woman who had given up a lot for her relationship, (now failed), with the father of her two sons, one of whom has a learning disability, and doing a crappy day job in a kitchen to pay the bills, while following her own dreams as an entertainer in the evenings. While this movie is mainly promoted as being about the romance between her awkward younger son and his new girlfriend (nicely acted by both), it is just as much the mother's story, and I think the new beginning for her son triggers her own anxiety about her age and how her own dreams are never likely to come true after all. I found this one to be very well acted and had a lot of truth in it while still being a comedy.

If you enjoy Old West frontier movies, like I do, then you will probably enjoy it, but if slow-moving period character pieces drive you nuts then you should probably avoid this effort.

Dave J (de) wrote: Tuesday, April 2, 2013 (1987) Return To Horror High HORROR A small group of low budget film makers deciding to make a grisly horror film from exploting the very school those slashing's was supposedly to have happen. And of course each of them get killed ending the film with a twist that is totallly convoluted. Early role for George Clooney who hasn't made a name for himself was first to get killed as the ego maniac actor. Full of second rate acting with convoluted situations. 1 out of 4

Art S (it) wrote: Classic film noir from Orson Welles, famous for its nearly incomprehensible plot, but rife with stunning set-pieces (the aquarium, the funhouse, the hall of mirrors, Acapulco, San Francisco's Chinatown) and odd characters (Everett Sloane as Arthur Bannister, Glenn Anders as George Grisby). Welles stars as Michael "Black Irish" O'Hara, sporting a not quite passable brogue, who falls for Rita Hayworth (as Mrs. Arthur Bannister), his soon-to-be ex-wife in real life, and ends up on trial for murder (in the film), defended by Bannister himself, a famous trial lawyer (and trickster). O'Hara's narration seems trustworthy but no one he meets on the yacht trip from NYC through the Panama Canal and on up to San Francisco possibly could be. He tells us himself that he was a fool for chasing Mrs. Bannister who may or may not really love him but when Grisby hires him to kill Grisby, he really should have walked away. Nearly every scene contains a flourish of some sort or another, lending a degree of ostentatiousness that feels different from the more integrated stylishness of Citizen Kane; here, the backgrounds are busy and details might be thrown in on a lark (because Welles likes Chinese opera perhaps) and the whole thing starts to feel crazy and cock-eyed and not nearly as serious as noir would later get. But Hayworth in her blonde makeover is unfathomable as the archetypal femme fatale, getting done over by her own husband, on screen and off. Not to be missed.

Jon R (ag) wrote: A compelling story, beautifully acted. Many of the scenes have extraordinary cinematography for its time. To my knowledge, "Wild River" was released neither on videotape nor DVD. Not a commercial milestone for 20th Century Fox, this unflinching drama uses its Volunteer State locations to great effect.
