Clocking at about two-and-a-half hours with mostly just talking, some will like it, and some will hate it. Personally, I liked it, even though it's far from flawless. If there were ever such thing as the perfect French ensemble, this film has it. With Marion Cotillard and Franois Cluzet, two of France's top actors, in leading roles, and a supporting character played by Jean Dujardin (although he isn't in it too often), I never dreamed something like this would ever happen. Yet here it is. The film begins with Ludo (Dujardin) partying all night long, hopping on his motorcycle to go home, and then getting hit by a truck. His large group of friends, all close for over a decade, become worried sick-- yet none of them can seem to sacrifice a beach vacation that Max (Cluzet) and his wife (Valrie Bonneton) offer every year. We don't think much of this-- after all, all of the friends seem like nice enough people, and as soon as we get a look at the beach house and the view, we're sucked in too. But it's a problem. These friends have had such long, complex relationships that they can't seem to tell each other their true feelings, and so basically, everyone's lying to each other. Marie (Cotillard) still has feelings for Ludo; Vincent (Benot Magimel), who's married with two kids, can't help but tell Max that he has a crush on him; Eric (Gilles Lellouche) is dumped by his girlfriend but is too embarrassed to share; and Antoine (Laurent Lafitte) asks his friends for advice on how to win his girlfriend back but he won't share any big details. In essence, these are all "little white lies", but how long can they last? Even from the beginning of "Les Petits Mouchoirs", you can tell something catastrophic is going to happen, whether or not a friendship ends or a misunderstanding gets out of control. But as we sit there expecting it, Canet makes us wait, and instead of everything happening abruptly, he takes his time, letting us get to know these characters, while letting them get to realize each others issues. Yet there's a tension that remains because we feel a sense of dread but we don't know when it's coming; we can't help but care because this group of friends are no different than most. All of the acting is terrific; these are wonderfully realized roles. The characters are developed gradually, and in a way that makes them look flawed, maybe even giving us the idea that we'd see them walking down the street (even the eternally beautiful Cotillard looks a bit more normal here). Some of these people we like, and some of them we don't, but either way the actors pull off that task of really looking like friends. And when you have a "The Big Chill"-esque idea like this one, that's a very important component. Canet in turns directs with warmth, and in others, harsh realism. If it was just a teeny bit shorter, "Les Petits Mouchoirs" could be perfect. But when we live in a world where movies don't even attempt to be as complex and real as this one, it's hard to even complain. Setting all problems aside, there's many moments of brilliance that eventually, outweigh the issues.

I think however that it did seem pretty bias towards the Weather Underground and their acts. It's an interesting commentary on revolution in America. Well worth watching.

Timothy S (es) wrote: 1997 saw the release of two movies concerning illegal shenanigans at one of the most famous addresses in the world. The second of the two, "Murder at 1600", is the weaker of the pair, an entertaining but convoluted and highly improbably thriller that has almost as many red herrings as it does murder suspects. Granted you are left guessing thanks to all of the misdirection, and the first half of the film does a nice job of pulling the viewer in, The murder mystery at the heart of the film is an interesting one, made even more so by the fact that D.C. homicide detective Wesley Snipes is met with bureaucracy and red tape every step of the way. He has a believable working relationship with Diane Lane, and it is refreshingly kept at a professional level even if it is sometimes hard to believe her as a Secret Service Agent and an Olympian sharpshooter. The film is briskly paced by director Dwight Little, and the screenplay seems credible in the beginning. The scenes set in the White House and the political protocol feel authentic. In the second half, however, as the suspects and motivations start to pile up, that credibility is forgotten about and the film begins to cruise on auto pilot. The finale is typical action film cliches, one after another, until the entire project collapses under the weight. I completely gave up on it when Snipes and Lane gain access to the White House courtesy of a mass of tunnels underneath and the Secret Service start behaving more like the Keystone Kops. It's really s shame because "Murder at 1600" started out in fine fashion with some smart writing and decent performances. It doesn't follow through.

I like Ricki, Brendan and Shirley in just about everything I see them in, and maybe not every movie has to be a huge blockbuster Academy award winning critically acclaimed breakout to be worthy of my time. I'm happy to be able to see a movie and relax for a few hours.

Michael B (ru) wrote: The Kingdom Of The Spiders traps you in a thick web of sadness and depression throughout the entire movie. The venomous blandness will slowly cause you to die of boredom as its poor dialogue and bad acting sucks out everything that that is good in your life for 97 long agenizing minuets. William Shatner was once one of my favorite actors staring in things like Star Trek, Price line commercials, and some guest appearances on TV shows. After seeing this though I began to wonder what his career was like in the 70s that he chose such a role in a very pathetic movie. Don't get me wrong the role of the smooth talking ladies man Robert "Rack" Hanson was perfect for Shatner seeing his other roles but the movie was just so terrible to watch. And don't ask me why his nick name was Rack because I was too busy dying of boredom to remember. The camera angles and shots were all good but other than that it was poorly executed. Honestly the spiders had to be the best actors in the film. How they trained them to do some of those parts is beyond my understanding. Solute to the spiders.
