The first part of Bill Douglas' influential trilogy harks back to his impoverished upbringing in early-'40s Scotland. Cinema was his only escape - he paid for it with the money he made from returning empty jam jars - and this escape is reflected most closely at this time of his life as an eight-year-old living on the breadline with his half-brother and sick grandmother in a poor mining village.

(nl) wrote: Such a beautiful film. Simple. Honest. Impactful. A complete indie gem.
(ru) wrote: .From the Ghost House Underground Series, and my question is how did it ever make it to this collection of good movies. Up to this point all the Ghosthouse Underground movies I have seen have been good movies. This one let me see how should I put it, well the only way to say it is that IT SUCKS, No Pun intended. This is a vampire movie but its so B its not funny. A twist at the end that I seen coming about mid way in the movie and then its like the producer ran out of money and decided to just stop the film, A crap ending. Not even worth the 2 stars I'm giving it.

(jp) wrote: You know what to expect when we have a terminally ill female lead. Thankfully, this did'nt turn out to be the usual tear-jerking melodrama. Emotions were decently real and was well acted throughout.
(fr) wrote: Enjoyable depiction of a person I never knew. I liked it enough that I went to the library and checked out some of Pekar's work.
(nl) wrote: A completely engrossing picture of an amazing artist with a powerhouse performance by Harris. No picture could do justice to Pollock's entire life, but Harris' picture at least gives us a glimpse into his madness.
(es) wrote: A really funny Japanese movie about a radio show, but the actors want their character's name changed, then the setting, then the plot. What will the poor scriptwriter do?
(de) wrote: This one goes up there at the top. I can't wait to see this again.
(fr) wrote: That was fun! A movie about noodles! Makes me wanna slurp some off of your bodies!
(it) wrote: Yes! Charley Varrick, a perfect movie, is a smart clockwork-tight thriller and a forebearer of other perfect movies. Walter Mathau plays a retired stunt pilot turned crop duster (The Last of the Independents) who decides robbing banks would be more exciting than spraying yams. He gets on the wrong side of the mob, who sends evil badass Joe Don Baker to reclaim money that Varrick has stolen. That sounds routine, but talent here molds the routine into something rich and exciting. This is a great movie that commands your attention to the smallest details and rewards that attention. This is Charley Varrick.
(gb) wrote: It's hard for me to take seriously any film whose villanous antagonists are "reds" but the period in which the film was made obviously has to be taken into consideration. Surprisingly, the most nuanced performance comes courtesy of Thelma Ritter. Her role is relatively small but extremely memorable.

(jp) wrote: A totally underrated comedy. Contrived ending , bot 85% good movie. Similar to Bad Santa.
(gb) wrote: I would have liked the movie to be 30 minutes or so longer, to explore more of the fascinating backstory of the city and the people's way of life.
