Isaac A (au) wrote: It's an entertaining movie but it is also very sad. This is a good movie but while watching it it gives me anxiety.

Grace C (it) wrote: This is a very underrated Disney film that deserves a better rating. The animation is great and the story are great. It teaches you about love and forgiveness all while adding that classic Disney charm.

Margherita C (gb) wrote: I know this is not one of these movies you will remember forever but I like it. It's totally nineties, it's funny and it's a good love story where true love, the one you will never forget, wins. Reese Witherspoon acts lovely and I think this film deserves at least to be watched in a rainy and boring afternoon.

Ian C (ca) wrote: John Hawkes is always the balls and he's no different in this trippy film noir. It is enjoyable but some long drawn out scenes prevents it from been one of the films of 2016.

Ken T (it) wrote: I stumbled across this movie by accident. I watched it and fell in love with it and not because of the lesbian thing, the story was rich and it touched me. Awesome movie, I'll add it to my collection if I can find it."

hannah b (ca) wrote: this is a fab film and even thought its in black and white it doesnt matter because its always funny and stupid and totally british humour which is the best.

Blake P (gb) wrote: Despite its wartime premise and "Nazis-running-amok" cautions, "Ministry of Fear" is surprisingly without propaganda and crowd-pleasing silliness. It is a tight and efficient noir that works well as both a mood piece and a spy thriller. Directed by legendary filmmaker Fritz Lang, who is much better known for "The Woman in the Window" or "M", the film is a blink-and-you'll-miss-it oddity that surely will come out of the shadows after years of hiding. When we first meet Stephen Neale (Ray Milland), he is being released from a London prison asylum. We aren't immediately told why he's there in the first place (and to tell you would ruin half of the film's gutsy paranoia), but his vulnerability makes him even more of an unlikely heroic leading character. "I long to be among people," Stephen confesses to his doctor; his first stop is a village fte hosted by the Mothers of Free Nations charity. One of the games involves guessing the correct weight of a cake in order to win it; in a cryptic manner, a palm reader tells him a specific weight, and in return, he gets the prize. But after a strange run-in with an armed man, it's revealed that the psychic was in fact part of a Nazi spy ring and Stephen inadvertently said a key code. Now on the run, he teams up with Carla (Marjorie Reynolds), the head of Mothers of Free Nations who is just as unaware of the ring as Stephen. Covered with black ink and earthy grays, "Ministry of Fear" projects a sort of danger in nearly every direction it goes in. The alleyways are murkier, the nighttime streets are wetter, and buildings seem to promise menace inside. In a spectacularly shot sequence, Stephen attends a seance. Before the lights go out, we are informed that a number of deadly men are surrounding him. Lang, in a plight of expressionism, douses the entire room in a jet black, save for the glowing light that bounces off every attendees face. The scene is erupted by several gun shots and a dead man on the ground. Throughout the film, Lang creates an abundance of these rubber band tight sequences, all of which are usually heightened by their cinematography. In a sense, Lang is like Hitchcock. He understands what the audience wants, but he's also in-touch with what he wants. "Ministry of Fear" has a lethal combination of virtuosity and popcorn suspense; not a second feels false. The climax is someone of a letdown in comparison to the rest of the film, however: the shootout, featuring Nazi spies against Milland and Reynolds, feels quick and uneventful. Even worse, the closing shot is of the leading couple riding in a car, smiling, with the coastline in the background. It's a dim and predictable conclusion to a film of such intelligent means, but it doesn't undermine the earlier atmosphere or the clinging paranoia the film sets so easily. "Ministry of Fear" has a dated premise, yet it somehow feels relevant and new, in the same way "All the President's Men" opened our eyes or how "Three Days of the Condor" renewed the wrong-man clich. Lang has made better films, but this one is one of nearly effortless beauty and thrills.
