Dan Mahowny was a rising star at the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. At twenty-four he was assistant manager of a major branch in the heart of Toronto's financial district. To his colleagues he was a workaholic. To his customers, he was astute, decisive and helpful. To his friends, he was a quiet, but humorous man who enjoyed watching sports on television. To his girlfriend, he was shy but engaging. None of them knew the other side of Dan Mahowny--the side that executed the largest single-handed bank fraud in Canadian history, grossing over $10 million in eighteen months to feed his gambling obsession.

Matthew S (kr) wrote: I can't think of an effective way to explain or share insight into Todd Rohal's THE CATECHISM CATACLYSM much less defend why I love it so much. Robert Longstreet, as one would expect, delivers a painfully realistic performance. While Steve Little offers an almost cartoonishly annoying take on his character. The really interesting thing is that these two very different characters are both being approached from distinctly different styles. It doesn't take long for the the two distinctly different types of stile to combine a systematic "catalyst" to turn an ill-advised canoe trip into a deeply odd exploration into dark storytelling. As "the stories" are spun each is presented in stark and literal manner. The connection and communication between the two characters begins to veer into unsettling moments of male-bonding to even more unsettling tension that begins to feel like their bonding is about to slither into potentially sinister sexually violent territory. And just as you think you know where we are headed, the film morphs into something altogether unexpected. ...And quite strange and twisted. A true cinematic oddity that is more smart than it wants to admit. If you have a twisted sense of humor and are looking to find something very different, see this. I would find it hard to believe anyone who describes this film as "dull" --- it is entertainingly strange -- and I almost cringe as I write this, but there is something charming about the whole experience.

Karrie V (es) wrote: This movie is so damn good. The three actors are wonderful at portraying their characters, and the dialogue is flawless. At first the movie seems unappealing, as if it was lacking in purpose, but then we realize that Kevin Spacey and Danny DeVito are doing exactly what they are supposed to, both to entertain us and to make us understand these people. With basically only one setting, and only three characters almost all the way throughout, the movie is driven by dialogue, hilarious dialogue that is. I hate to say it, and I mean no offense to 12 Angry Men, but this can be compared as a modern day, comedy. Not as good of course, but definitely a wonderful film.

Adrian B (de) wrote: Minor, but effective Francois Truffait movie of a various children within a Paris superb. There is no consistent story within the film, just sequences of observations of young ones in Paris, although one child that is often seen is one that has no known home or family what-so-ever. Even though it is episodic, there are several scenes that are very memorable. Take one in which a young girl is stranded in an apartment, and she calls out for help. The neighbours around the courtyard of which she makes her voice heard rush to her aid, sending up food (and wine) in order to feed her. This is kind of interesting communication and response process. Another interesting scene is an infant who tries to get a cat that has fallen out of a window, with his mother in the other room. He is too young to realize the dangers of crawling onto the sill and also falls out of the window. Although everything is okay, that segment is particularly gripping. Not one Truffait's best, but none-the-less, another good one by him.
