Mako: The Jaws of Death torrent reviews
(it) wrote: Interesting movie available on Amazon Prime. 4-5 guys discussing the ramifications of their solving the P=NP mathematics problem. Very heavy dialog driven movie that will appeal to math and computer science nerds.
(kr) wrote: def deserved the nomination. good comedy short
(jp) wrote: Good film similar in story to Blow. Definitely worth a watch.
(br) wrote: A small noir gem with another good performance by Forest Whitaker. Mainly shot in Iceland and it does have an Icelandic feeling to it.
(jp) wrote: Definitely skimmed over the surface of the actual story. My favorite and MAIN parts of the book (the history of Trachimbrod, Yankel and Brod, and Safran's actual story) are completely nonexistent in the film.
(es) wrote: Suburbia is a subject that has been tackled in numerous novels and films over the decades, and most of them have the same general message that the inhabitants of suburbia, despite the happiness on the surface, are actually troubled people. FAR FROM HEAVEN is really no different in that regard. It is a period piece set in 1950's New Hampshire, and revolves around a (supposedly) happy married couple played by Julianne Moore and Dennis Quaid. To avoid any plot specifics I'll just say that the film deals with issues of racism and homosexuality through the lens and attitudes of 1950's America. It is also directed by Todd Haynes, well known for his other films with deal with gay culture and issues. Even though this is the first film I've seen by him, I would imagine that this film is very toned down from he did previously, given the PG-13 rating. One thing the film does really well is take a well-worn topic, but treat it with such dead-face sincerity that is almost comes off as a parody. Yet, this film really isn't that funny. In fact, it provoked little emotional response out of me in general other than the occasional bemused chuckle. While some might count this as a negative, I don't necessarily see it that way because I feel like this film's goal is to emulate a style of film and filmmaking rather than to comment on it in a postmodern way. The style of film I believe this film takes its cues from is the 1950's melodrama, e.g., PEYTON PLACE. Todd Haynes really showed an affection for this era in the overall design and look of the film, which has this idyllic quality to it. The production design, sets, costumes, etc. were all stylized in such a way that it made me feel like I was watching a film from the 1950's. Even the acting and line delivery was ever so slightly stilted to give off such a vibe. However, the one element that brought everything together was the beautiful score by Elmer Bernstein which lent an air of longing and yearning that complemented the film's thematic concerns quite nicely. Overall, FAR FROM HEAVEN doesn't have a unique story and the fact that it doesn't have much below the surface while at the same time portraying a milieu famous for being shallow is kind of ironic. Still, it is lovingly crafted and features some fine performances from its cast.

Danny DeVito played an excellent part also, and was surprised to see a very young John Reilly. Plenty of action, drama and suspense. If you only know what you have heard about Jimmy Hoffa, you need to see this film to get clear. I was amazed as to the added newsreels to see just how well Jack played the part. 5 Stars
