Meet John Doe
As a parting shot, fired reporter Ann Mitchell prints a fake letter from unemployed "John Doe," who threatens suicide in protest of social ills.

(es) wrote: A really strange, surreal comedy from Alfonso Arau that has one of the few performances from Woody Allen that exists outside of material that he wrote and/or directed. It's easy to see why he chose to be in this movie since it deals with themes of religion, death, and the afterlife in a humorous way, and a lot of the dialogue Allen delivers almost feels like it was written specifically for him. The film is full of memorable characters, including a whore-mongering priest with a heart of gold played by David Schwimmer, a psychotic Texas state trooper played by Kiefer Sutherland, and a violent bug-eyed nun played by an almost unrecognizable Fran Drescher. The themes and ideas in this movie are in a constant state of war with each other, making this movie as thematically chaotic as the town it takes place in, but that seems to be the point at the end. The movie is deeply flawed, as the motivations for the actions of Allen's character during the final act don't much sense and a lot of the execution feels a bit half-baked and poorly thought out. However, at the end of the day this movie is pretty much what it set out to be, which is a surreal, absurd flick that giggles hysterically in the face of things that Woody Allen seems to laugh nervously at in his films, and I enjoyed it for what it was.

Although the original Bandit is gone, the amount of humor we get from Jackie Gleason is refreshingly funny and quite surprising and proves quite redeeming this time round. And even though some jokes have been done to death, a lot haven't. So in the end, Smokey and the Bandit 3 concludes the trilogy on a fairly high note after a disappointing first sequel, and is definitely a simple film with laughter and speed to it. Though there was no real laughs from Jerry Reed and he should have stayed as Snowman. Rather than trying to be the Bandit.

(br) wrote: Jean-Pierre Melville's final project is a blue-toned caper film with two extended heist sequences and several long stretches without dialogue. Alain Delon (who also starred in Melville's "Le Samourai" and "Le Cercle Rouge") is now a good guy -- a detective on the trail -- and lead criminals Richard Crenna and Michael Conrad are presumably dubbed in French. Catherine Deneuve shows up for a few scenes to look beautiful but feels written into the story as a marketing move.The most interesting segment is the second heist, an elaborate robbery of a train in motion. Unfortunately, the cost-cutting use of a miniature helicopter and train for the long shots is seriously embarrassing.

(ca) wrote: Sadly, Visiting Hours is quite predictable, and really offers nothing other than really decent acting. Michael Ironside is awesome, as usual, and so is Lee Grant. The other actors do an OK job but are nothing special.The story itself is pretty linear, and as a result pretty average. A crazed killer is going through the hospital killing patients on his way to Lee Grant who was someone he tried to kill previously. A very weak take on anti-violence.

(au) wrote: 2012 was the year of multiple (alright, two) Snow White movies at the cinema. I didn't see either but I would hope that they were a bit better than this poor, horror fantasy style effort. While this does lean closer to the original Grimm fairy tale than the singing and dancing Disney version, that doesn't necessarily mean it makes for a better film. In fact, it makes for a largely dull and confusingly toned film. Sam Neill, phoning it in big time, is charmed by the seductive evilness of Claudia Hoffman - a pantomime Sigorney Weaver - much to the displeasure of his daughter Lilli, a pre-Dawson's Creek, looking about 12, Monica Keena. When Lady Hoffman's child dies at birth, she is sent on a tirade of black magic and jealousy against her poor step daughter for reasons that really don't seem all that strong, other than she's a bit of a bitch. A Tale of Terror is confusing blend of horror themes (at times incest and raising the dead are hinted at) and there is certainly plenty of blood throughout but the rest of the time the film skirts around a silly romance story between Lilli and Will, the head of the dwarves who aren't dwarves in this film. Weaver and Keena have some nice moments together. Weaver is very good at playing the evil queen in this type of thing, even when her material is so bad. She is easily the best thing about the film, able to convey her wickedness by merely opening her eyes. Keena has been miscast. She's much better at playing a bad girl, or running away from Freddy and Jason in their joint venture. She does okay but she's no Snow White. Largely due to it's mixed tone and not knowing whether it wants to go fully dark and revolting, the film doesn't engage with it's audience and feels flat most of the time. There are some good moments when Weaver is unleashing her black magic powers and an odd cool demise but these moments are scarce and the exceptions rather than the norm in a movie that, sadly, just doesn't work.
