Occupied Minds

Story of two journalists, Jamal Dajani, a Palestinian-American and David Michaelis, an Israeli, who journey to Jerusalem, their mutual birthplace, to explore new solutions and offer unique insights into the divisive Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The film takes viewers on an emotional and intensely personal odyssey through the streets of one of the world's most volatile regions. Among the myriad of voices Dajani and Michaelis hear from are: a wanted Palestinian gunman, an Israeli soldier breaking the silence about his service, an Israeli surgeon who lost his eyesight in a suicide bombing, an Israeli mother who lost her son in the conflict, and a Palestinian activist. As Dajani and Michaelis make their way through the many worlds that make up contemporary Israel and Palestine, they struggle to find lasting solutions to what others believe may be a never-ending conflict.

Ca H (us) wrote: Not quite as magical as some Studio Ghibli but still fantastic. It's stunning to look at, lovely to listen to and incredibly sweet without being saccharine. It creates a strong sense of nostalgia and attachment straight away and the gestures towards the war and family losses are touching. I would watch it again in a heartbeat.

K R (fr) wrote: A fun and interesting look at live-action, role-playing culture.

Elliott F (es) wrote: Joshua Marston's Maria Full of Grace is a superb film, gritty but natural, bleak but not without hope. It tells the story of Maria Alvarez (Catalina Sandino Moreno), a seventeen-year-old girl who turns to becoming a drug mule to make some money for her family. It's amazingly direct for a film of this nature, avoiding the easy way out, and without pulling strings for emotional response. As Maria, Sandino Moreno gives a stunning performance, glowing with naturalism and rawness. She is something of a revelation. The film as a whole is just as great. One of the best of 2004.

Jason L (es) wrote: Having seen only bits of Chinatown and knowing only what I have read, i was able to go into 'The two Jakes' with a fairly open mind and not be totally bogged down by too much negativity. And despite not being the best Noir film around it does have a certain charm about it. Mainly due to Jack Nicholson's suave Jake Gittes, but also thanks to the ice cold seductive performance of Madeleine Stowe, the shady underhandedness of Harvey Keitel and the vulnerable and believable Meg Tilly. The two Jakes has it's flaws but is well worth a watch on a Sunday afternoon or an early Monday morning.

Aman A (ag) wrote: Woody Allen, oh, Woody Allen. He plays the same (or similar) character every time (yes they might have different professions or upbringings, but they are all smart, talkative, and hyperactive) but the movie and he is so good. This movie did not have all the usual humour but it had something much more, heart. It had a lot of heart and a lot of power. Very down to earth, fast moving and ends with a heartfelt flourish. This movie deserves all five stars and Woody, take another bow for the umpteenth time.

Adam R (us) wrote: There are a few fairly enjoyable songs, but it will take a miracle of miracles to make it through the entire film without dozing off. (First and only viewing - November 2012)

Jonathan P (de) wrote: Of all the silent films (well of the D.W. Griffith films at least) I have watched to date this is by far the best of the lot. Way Down East is better written and doesn't jump back and forth into three or four different stories causing you to lose track of what is going on and by thus doing allows you to build sympathy for Lillian Gish's character. The scene on the ice is by far the most skilled camera work up to that point and makes for an excellent climax. People hail Intolerance or Birth of a Nation or even Broken Blossoms as Griffith's best work but I would humbly say (as a movie fan and not an educated critic, but of course most of there assessments are rubbish anyways) that Way Down East is his best work.
