A comedy built on non sequiturs, the French-Austrian production No Rest for the Brave recalls Luis Buñuel at his most playful, or perhaps more accurately, the absurd New Zealand “exquisite corpse” film The Price of Milk. Brave opens on a bar in a sleepy farming village where two men, Igor and Basile, are having a conversation about their dreams. Concerned about his friend’s addled state, Igor visits him the next day but can’t find him; it turns out Basile has committed a massacre in the town square, and promptly shoots Igor dead. From there, the film returns to the bar, where a man named Hector is preparing to do some shady business with a bunch of gangsters. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Tyler W (ag) wrote: This One Was WAY BETTER Than the Original Or The Other Awful Attempt At 2nd Film IMO...So Id Say It's Worth A Watch If U Liked The Original Movie Or Found Footage Films!

Manu G (kr) wrote: Nothing more than a mediocre sequel. It has some good action sequences but the story lacks of stability and deepness unlike the first part the original. Ray Liotta still has some skills in him I'll give him that. Street Kings 2: Motor City moves the action to Michigan and explores the world of dirty cops on the violent streets of Detroit. Marty Kingston (Liotta) is an undercover narcotics detective who is shot and barely survives a drug bust gone wrong to save the life of his partner. When his partner is killed by a masked gunman four years later, Marty must team up with the hotheaded homicide detective Dan Sullivan (Hatosy) to investigate a string of brutal cop murders and hunt down the cop killer. The investigation that ensues is shrouded in deception and loaded with plot twists that question the line between the rules of law and justice.

Richard D (gb) wrote: Mamet's first film is one of his very best. Lindsay Crouse is a celebrity psychiatrist who is drawn into the world of con man Joe Mantegna when one of her patients is threatened by him due to a gambling debt. She is drawn in and becomes his confederate in a series of cons ... or does she? There's multiple levels of deception happening in this film, but the beauty of it is that despite it being a skilled exercise in misdirection, the cons are not the real point of the film. The film is really about what Crouse learns about herself during the course of the film, and even that isn't exactly what it appears to be.

Jake R (au) wrote: The now legendary Coen brothers team present their first attempt at crime-fiction, and deliver with outstanding measures. Brutally captivating and stark, "Blood Simple" is not an easy film to endure by any means, though viewers who take it on will surely be grateful that they did.

Dave A (kr) wrote: Delicious satire on both the corporate/capitalist ideal and the ultimately not so different radical(in this case Black Power)/counterculture ideal. It is both perceptive yet increadibly silly. It admittedly wavers a bit and not all the humour comes off, but it's still a gem...

Adapted from the book Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game that Made a Nation, by journalist John Carlin, Invictus (Latin for unconquered) is a stirring examination of the relationship between sport and politics. Ultra-prolific director Clint Eastwood hits a dramatic crescendo with this tightly focused bio-pic. Delivering a detailed account of one of the 20th century's most significant political figures, Nelson Mandela and his brave attempt to unite the fractured South African nation under one despised emblem, the Springbok rugby team. "One Team, One Country"The larger story of Mandela, a man, whom after 30 years of incarceration becomes South Africa's first democratically elected president, is truly heroic. However, Eastwood's adaptation of murky cinematography, distractingly out-of-place music, painfully long production, exaggerated fortune cookie-style wisdoms and a sense of clumsy self-importance is unashamedly orchestrated for Oscar contention."I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul" In his first historic term as President, Mandela (Morgan Freeman) faces the tensions and divisions of his post apartheid nation, where his people; the "rainbow nation", is made up of whites and blacks equally suspicious of one another.Mandela, who survived a 27 year incarceration by clinging to the spiritual messages of William Earnest Henley's poem Invictus, believes tolerance and acceptance is the only way to break the racial and economical divide between his "family" of 42 million. Starting with his own presidential cabinet and security staff, Mandela pronounces "The Rainbow Nation Starts here ... reconciliation starts here. Forgiveness starts here, too." inviting the previously white dominated office to stay and be part of his mixed solution. After receiving news that the black despised/white beloved rugby team, the Springboks are to be unlawfully disbanded, Mandela believes he must find a way to "juggle black aspirations with white fears" and embarks on a PR campaign of "human calculations" to unite South Africa through the universal language of sport. Making this his mission, Mandela bestows his philosophy of leadership on Springboks captain Francois Pienaar (Matt Damon) "We need inspiration: we must exceed our own expectations". Acting as a driving force, Mandela personally inspires the underdog team as they strive to win the 1995 Rugby World Cup.Freeman's calm and measured portrayal as Mandela is a flawless characterisation. Instantly apparent, the time spent on the little things like facial gestures, body movement, speech patters and accent, he delivers an astoundingly good performance.The Increasingly versatile Damon has beefed up and sports a new messy bleach blonde do to fit the role. However, sadly he literally butchers the Afrikaans accent and can not convincingly hold a rugby ball. Not in the same league as his other work, Eastwood's remarkably low key and unassuming filming style leaves this unabashed Oscar contender lacking depth. Doing little justice to such a beautiful story, the not-so-worldly-played sport is simply too dominant over the film and should have taken more of a back seat.In saying that, there are some genuinely touching and authentic moments, mostly evident by the secondary actors. For instance, when Mandela's personal guards and ex-Apartheid Special Branch men relax with each other and play an impromptu game, and when the team heads out to remote communities and teaches soccer-fan children how to play the game.The Verdict: Invictus isn't terrible, it's just ordinary, and considering the credentials behind its making, it is a major disappointment. Often coming across as more of a sermon than a story, this overstated, preachy and bland tale is less than compelling.Published: The Queanbeyan AgeDate of Publication: 29/01/2010
