Don't get me wrong that it's not a good movie; in fact, it's a pretty good one. Deep, nice, meaningful... a movie for all the youth nowadays to learn something in their life. A great drama movie that worth to watch.

(it) wrote: Another confusing mystery addition to the Hellraiser franchise. This one felt almost the same as Inferno, except Pinhead appears even less. The plot isn't all that bad, but it's slow and a tad boring. It's really not what you would want from a Hellraiser film.
(es) wrote: I've read a lot of feedback to this film, which is by and large rather negative. I've noticed that people who dislike the characters occupying Hurlyburly often criticize the film itself as a result. We are not intended to embrace the lifestyles of these characters. This is a picture that encompasses a sub-culture and the neuroses of certain types of people. It is an intelligent, articulate piece with a venomous sense of cynicism and blunt sensibility. The men focused on are self-obsessed chauvinists, but they are not reduced to amplification of their flaws. Their pain and dilemmas are familiar, and they serve towards an unnerving portrait of emptiness. I loved this movie because I love great acting. Watching what some of these actors do with the script is so exciting and astonishing, particularly the brilliant Sean Penn. The writing and performances are phenomenal, but this is a movie that probably only appeals to people who like stage-oriented pieces.
(es) wrote: Buscemi's Trees Lounge is a slow-going, character driven film about an alcholic and the denizens of Trees Lounge, all of whom have been either beaten up or passed by by life in one way or another. The slow pace of the film is perfect, since the lives of these people are slow. too. The protagonist, Tommy, (played by Buscemi who also wrote and directed) is one of those alcoholic denizens of Trees Lounge; in fact, he conveniently lives right upstairs. He has recently lost his job as a mechanic, and as if it weren't bad enough that his boss won't give him a good recommendation (Tommy 'borrowed' $1,500 from the cash register one Friday and lost it all in Atlantic City) every time he tries to find work he either shows up on foot or is seen pushing the car he can't going, which speaks volumes about his abilities. He seems to take it all in stride, however the fact that he lost his pregnant girlfriend of eight years to his former boss does bother him. That seems to be the only thing that bothers him; he just has another drink or snort of cocaine if someone offers or smokes weed if someone is passing a joint around.He ends up with an opportunity of sorts when his uncles has a heart attack and dies, almost running over a little boy who can't seem to get ice cream. Throughout the film, (Tommy ends up driving the ice cream truck) that nameless little boy seems to be making the statement that the film makes, life is disappointing, we seldom get what we want and are frustrated most of the time by events that are either beyond our control or self-inflicted. Either way, disappointment is a major theme here.One day when Tommy is driving the ice cream truck, his former girlfriend's neice (an exceptional performance by Chloe Sevigny) drives along with Steve and seems to like him. She starts regularly going along with Steve and one night ends up making out with Tommy and spending the night, which leaves us baffled. There are wonderful actors in this film, Mimi Rogers, Samuel T Jackson, Elizabeth Bracco, Anthonly LaPaglia, Daniel Baldwin, Carole Kane, and they are all fabulous portraying these sad people.No, this movie doesn't really go anywhere, and we know that Tommy's life will never go anywhere either. Niether will any of the denizens of Trees Lounge.At the end of the film, Tommy's ex has the baby. Steve wants desperately to have his girlfriend back along with the baby; whose parentage we are never sure of, and we have the distinct feeling that they don't either. But if could just have a family, maybe he will 'go somewhere', or at least he won't be alone. His ex tells him it would be best for him to leave.Have a drink, take a snort, take a hit... Tommy isn't going anywhere so he might as well.We are left with the unsettling feeling that perhaps in the great scheme of things, we might not be going anywhere either.

(br) wrote: What a gem of a movie! It's one of these films that despite the large quantity of films I've watched it still finds a high rank in my all time favorites and currently, after my first viewing, I've placed it in the 16th place. It is in good company right between "Oldboy" and "Barton Fink". This film is Buuel's take on Mexican neorealism and it surpasses all the films of Italian neorealism that I've seen. This, in reality, is Buuel conquering both worlds. After he had conquered the surrealistic world with the ever so incredible "Un Chien Andalou" he conquers the realistic world with this one.The story of the movie revolves around a gang of teenage and even younger delinquents who roam the unforgiving streets of Mexico City in search of money, fun, cigarettes and even love or a purpose in life. It is a cruel setting with the whole of society, except for a small minority, including their parents being extremely tough on these children and never showing a glimpse of forgivness to their behaviour. Never admitting the fact that they've created these little monsters, as they consider them, and always whistling to their own tune of survival.The screenplay is amazing. Every event is stringed to the other in a way that, from these everyday brutal events, a coherent and enticing plot is created that keeps your attention glued to the screen. The movie is based on actual facts mind you! The ending is a logical conclussion to the whole story and suits the tone and events the preceed it like a glove.Now let's talk direction. Buuel proves for the second time after "Un Chien Andalou" that he is an auteur and a true master of cinema. He does that in a completely different style and genre to the aformentioned movie. His shots are as if someone has carved Guernica to a cave wall. Rough, brutal but also absolutely beautiful in a twisted way. In contrast to Guernica though they are completely realistic. Well, there is a little surrealism in the film. It features two dream sequences that are handled in a sublime and very effective way. Every close up Buuel choses is a justified one and his actors really offer some great and iconic faces to get up close and personal with. But other than the close ups the movie doesn't dissapoint either. The cinematography is stunning. Every location is searched to the last bit and as a whole Mexico City creates something of a canvas for Buuel and his cinematographer to paint on. This only adds up to the harsness of the screenplay and the events that are depicted. The use of music is the least memorable part of the movie but still it augments the picture in a fine way.That being said, no realistic movie would be complete without the matching performances. Needless to say the movie fails to dissapoint in this department. The cast is brilliant as a whole but the standouts are Alfonso Mejia, Roberto Cobo, Alma Delia Fuentes and especially Miguel Inclan. Miguel Inclan portrays an old blind man who acts as a self proclaimed judge for these children never letting a bit of kindness find his way in his words. But that's not to say that the younger members of the cast are a bit less spellbinding. The performances were so naturalistic that I thought I was watching a documentary for the most part of the movie! It felt like real life.Now, about what the movie has to say. The gist of it all. It is very simple and very profound really. DON'T KILL YOUR FUTURE! The way that society, their parents mostly, is treating these children is destructive. The children are not to blame really. Besides they 're too young and too mislead to really understand anything. Society breeds murderers. And that, my friends, is not only a mistake. It is a crime. A crime against life. Because people from all lengths and widths of society can make one divine act in their life. They can create life by having children. To not preserve that life and waste it equals suicide. That's why I think that the movie is timeless from this standpoint.In conclussion, I think that only one Buuel movie is better than this one and that's "Un Chien Andalou". Still I don't think that I'll ever watch another Buuel movie that will surpass the brilliance and sheer perfection of "Los Olvidados".

Podr tornarse monotona en ocasiones, pero es una pelcula con un humor "raunchy" (estilo Super Bad o Knocked Up) que es garanta de risas.
