(us) wrote: This is one of the most bizarre documentaries I've ever seen. Its not a well made film by any means. It looks amateur (because it is) and it is edited and executed like they've just cracked the box open on Final Cut Pro. But the strange thing about this doco is that it's entirely compelling. It chronicles one middle-aged man's determination to swim the length of the Amazon river... a fete never attempted. Its a river full of countless dangers; piranha, anacondas, alligators, parasites, whirlpools and Amazonian natives to name just some. The film begins in a very hokey manner which basically has it's subject, Martin Strel, prancing around like a drunken imbecile. I found this irritating as if they're declaring to the world "We're from Slovenia, aren't we weird?"... but once the marathon swim begins, the movie is captivating. As days begin to meld into each other the story begins to resemble something from Apocalypse Now as Strel slowly slips into madness and delirium. A lot of the editing is forced and unnecessary but the overall journey is well worth watching. As the end credits began to roll it was strange to see Olivia Newton-John's name pop up as a producer. I am guessing she came on board after the fact to help fund it's distribution. Whatever... its a really peculiar movie!

(fr) wrote: My dad picked up this film on vcd when we were in beijing. Amazing film based on an actor's ins and outs of drug abuse, starring the actor himself and his family. It's mindblowing how such a sensitive topic is handled by the real characters, who seemingly dramatise it reflexively. It really drives into the protagonist's psychological state, hinting at a perfectionist trait being the root of his projected rage.

(fr) wrote: "Joe" (the late Richard Pryor) is a foulmouth con man/thief who has been in trouble with the law in the past for most of his life. When he gets arrested again, he is brought in front of a judge (Bill Quinn) and is assigned community service. He is assigned as a bus driver for special needs students and their teacher (Cicely Tyson), who is taking the students, who the community has shunned, from Philadelphia to a farm in Washington state. At first, "Joe" is not happy with his situation and does not like what he has been forced into. However, he slowly learns that there is more to life then himself. The first thing you'd expect from a Richard Pryor movie is jokes laced with four-letter words. There is that, but they basically stop about half-way through the movie. Pryor keeps the laughs going, but they aren't side-splitting jokes. Many of the jokes, in fact, only produce some good chuckles. There are some good performances in the cast. And, as "Joe" begins to warm up to the kids, you get to see some fair chemistry between them and Pryor. In fact, Pryor's performance is probably the best. "Joe" starts off as a street-wise punk, but slowly becomes a loving man who now knows there are people in more need than he. Pryor shows off the transformation really well. Tyson does a good job herself, and has pretty good chemistry with Pryor and especially the children. To me, it looks as if Pryor and Tyson took time to get to know their young co-stars and began to care for them to the point that they brought that to the screen. If you ask me, the music is not great. The movie was released in the early 1980's, but sounds like pop from a decade earlier. The music, with the theme song sung by Roberta Flack, is not memorable. The theme song, which you hear a few times during the film, is not even catchy. If the theme song was released today, I can pretty much guarantee it wouldn't chart on Billboard. The wardrobes are typical for the time the movie was released, and nothing really stands out. It is a trip to see the clothing of when I was 10 though. I personally wouldn't put it in my Top 10 "Must See" movies, but I would probably put it somewhere on the low side of my Top 5 choices for rent if my first movie wasn't available.
(jp) wrote: This is Kurosawa's first film after his attempted suicide. A project that he had on the back burner for decades, he finally got to make it as a Russian/Japanese co-production. The results are mixed in my opinion, but it gave Kurosawa a much needed boost that allowed him to go on to make a final few masterpieces in the twilight of his career.There isn't much of a plot. Really only vignettes of this man born and raised in the wilderness guiding Russian surveyors in the wilderness and how his view of life differs from his companions. For 2.5 hours, a philosophical back and forth isn't all that compelling (had to finish this in two sittings). The tragic end of the story picks up a lot more though and gives a suitably reverent and appropriate closing to the story.Although this was filmed in 70mm and Kurosawa's second color picture, the transfer on the DVD is terrible and doesn't do the sweeping landscapes and forests any justice. This needs a blu-ray transfer badly, but I doubt it will get one even though Kurosawa won an Oscar for it.It's not a feature that gets mentioned very often in Kurosawa's oeuvre and honestly...I can see why. Not that it's bad, just nowhere near as compelling as his other films. Probably only recommended to Kurosawa completists.
(jp) wrote: I listened to the very beginning twice, and still couldn't catch all of what she was saying. Then I'd turn the volume up, only to be nearly knocked out my seat by the "mood music." Ahhh, I'd missed that ever telling part of the description: "impressionistic drama written and directed by Robert Altman." Silly me, she said, not remembering even ordering this DVD... The voice-over was very difficult to understand, though her voice is certainly mesmerizing. It turns out the story read on the voice over was a story Susannah York had written herself, and Altman worked it into the story. Is it a ghost story? A view into a troubled mind? A horrible trick being played on this poor woman, to make her think she's going insane? It's dark and muddy, and at times confusing, then when you're not paying attention, it suddenly clicks and starts making sense. And then it doesn't. And then it does. Or does it? Later, in watching the director's interview "Imagining Images", which I found as interesting to watch as the movie itself (but for a different reason), in the first 2 minutes Robert Altman explained what the movie was about, for which I was thankful. It was helpful because after having just watched the film...I was left not being sure. It was somewhat a relieve to find it wasn't only me, as it reportedly left its Cannes audiences mostly confused. To explain any more of the plot, or to draw parallels between other like movies, would do a dis-service to anyone who hasn't seen the film. It's almost the kind of film that everyone who watches sees something different, and so you should. Altman further gave some very good insight into his own style of directing, explaining that he does everything he can to not give the actors any sense of what *he* envisions how they should play the character. He wants the actors to bring their own version of the character, not be a mimic of his vision.

(br) wrote: Unnecessary sequel. There are a few good songs, and a lot of forgettable ones as well. At times the score would play bits of "People" to remind us of the better, original movie. There isn't much of a story here. Overall, this is just an okay movie.
