Jonathan M (us) wrote: I really do think this movie had potential, and I really wanted to like it, but there were simply too many issues when it came to execution. Most of the performances are solid, especially Luke Wilson's, but they all suffer from problems originating from the script. People do things simply because the flimsy plot requires them to, and characters get into theological debates that wouldn't actually happen in real life because the screenwriter obviously doesn't understand the concept of subtlety. I understand suspension of disbelief, but the movie consistently throws situations at the audience and simply tells them to just roll with it. And that may be fine with other genres, but when it comes to a drama like this, it needs to be as realistic as possible in order to be immersive. I will say that this film isn't necessarily religious propaganda. It's not a message about having faith in a God, but more so a statement about having a positive outlook on the world and living life to it's fullest. And while it's definitely a position that's done to death, this movie didn't portray that mindset obnoxiously. The movie sort of just presented it, but I think it could have felt more real and legitimately touching if the script were given a couple more rewrites.

Ganske slow og ganske kjedelig. Jeg smhumra 2 ganger tror jeg. Ja, ogs var det et realt slag i magan at det foregr p 70-tallet med musikk deretter. Ja, jeg skrudde av volumet i pningssekvensen. Ja, og pluss for at det er basert p ekte historie da.

Eric B (ca) wrote: When a film is based on surreal, head-flick imagery but has limited budget and the washed-out quality of a '40s stag reel, it's probably in trouble. This brings us to the overambitious "Fando y Lis," the first feature of Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky. Similar in concept to his better known "El Topo" and "The Holy Mountain," "Fando y Lis" depicts another arduous quest for spiritual enlightenment -- in this case, represented by a mystical city of bliss called "Tar."Fando and Lis are a young couple. Fando has shaggy sideburns and mercurial, childlike temperament. Lis is a petite, crippled, emotionally needy blonde. Fando pushes her around on a bulky cart, along with an old-fashioned gramophone, her doll and his beloved drum. He recurrently loses patience with Lis and turns cruel, but soon regrets his abuse.The two hope to find Tar, but never get beyond what appears to be the bottom of an abandoned rock quarry. Along the way, they encounter a bounty of strange people and sights that include drag queens, a dominatrix with a whip, a jazz cat with a flaming piano, a naked clan who lives in a mudhole, card-playing crones who bet with peaches, an old man lording over a pile of cow skulls, women who use bowling balls as weapons, gluttons feasting with funnels on their heads and Fando's grotesque mother. Oh, and here's an image Freud would love: a man viciously stabbing a hole in a doll's crotch and then draping tiny snakes over the gash.Meanwhile, Fando and Lis strike poses in a graveyard, dabble in cross-dressing and splash their names across each other's bodies in dark paint. Fando lights a large spider on fire, and stumbles around an auto junkyard with seductive trollops. Lis gets molested, gives birth to piglets and lets a blind man drink her blood. Where Luis Bunuel left off, this film begins.If "Fando y Lis" is anything like "El Topo" and "The Holy Mountain," Jodorowsky carefully chose all these images to illustrate various metaphysical obstacles that the couple must hurdle. But his symbolism is so personal that one needs Cliff's Notes (or at least a DVD commentary track) to understand. And unfortunately, the film can be quite grating even without visuals. Sound effects are often jacked up to an abrasive volume, and even everyday activities like eating and walking are unrealistically noisy (the opening scene with Lis chewing a crunchy flower might be enough to send some viewers running from the room). The background for one scene resembles a din of rusty door hinges, and another segment even has what World Cup fans may identify as a chorus of angry vuvuzelas.Epileptics should avoid this film at all costs. Movie buffs? Proceed with caution.

John W (fr) wrote: Starring John Barrymore and Carole Lombard. Required viewing because this film, along with Frank Capra's "It Happened One Night," this was the film that defined screwball comedy and sparked a craze for the genre that would continue throughout the '30s. Born of the depression, the genre kidded the privileged class by making them seem more than a little crazy, and their antics were enacted by madly stylish actors moving at a furious pace through often ridiculous situations. This was the film in which Howard Hawks introduced what would become a trademark style of delivering comic dialogue -- at breakneck speed, barely pausing to take a breath. Director Hawks also took credit for turning a movie's romantic leads into out-and-out comics for the first time; and, indeed, in Twentieth Century John Barrymore and Carole Lombard clown their way through a pair of the funniest and most entertaining star turns of the 1930s. It was his final great film performance, and her first.

Scott S (ru) wrote: Frisco Jenny (1933) -- [6.5] -- Ruth Chatterton resorts to prostitution after the 1906 earthquake demolishes San Francisco, killing both her father and her lover. She does her best to take care of her young son, but the law sees fit to take the boy away from her after she's caught up in a murder scandal. Later in life, through a sordid turn of events, her son becomes the district attorney and she's behind bars, sentenced to death. Should she reveal her identity to her son, the only man who can save her life? Or should she take her secret to the grave, so he never bears the shame of having a ho-bag mama? Chatterton isn't one of my favorite actresses from the period, but it's great hearing her deliver a line like, "I gave him life, he gives me death." This is a nice, dark, cheezy Pre-Code Hollywood flick that remains true to itself (and its title character), even to the bitter end.

Christina (gb) wrote: Bill Murray is a rather good fit for FDR (perhaps not quite as good as some previous actors to don the part, but quite adequate in his own right), and though the film does seem to try and balance itself between the rather more melodramatic tale of the President's numerous mistresses and the more interesting tale of his meeting with the King and Queen of England and their attempts to unite in the face of the forthcoming war, the film has some entertaining and interesting moments along the way that ultimately make it an interesting experience overall.

Dave S (jp) wrote: Reminded me of Birdman, minus the good script. Al Pacino delivers a very understated performance but there's so little here I even started losing interest in him.

Gimly M (ca) wrote: Going in I knew certain people took major issue with the subject of some of the movie's jokes: Rape, animal cruelty, depression, death, and domestic terrorism to name a few. Personally I took issue with the fact that I was bored.A black-comedy anthology film starring a Dachshund seemed like it would be totally my cup of tea. In reality, Wiener-Dog couldn't hold my attention through even the first segment, and I didn't laugh once.
