(us) wrote: Definitely a performance piece. Dirty Filthy Love stars Michael Sheen (Mark Furness), Anastasia Griffith (Stevie), and Shirley Henderson (Charlotte). It centers around Mark, who has recently gotten a trial separation from his wife Stevie, and had to take stress leave from work as an architect. His therapist insists that this behavior is caused by depression, but in fact, he has severe OCD and the onsets of tourettes, which he soon learns when encountering Charlotte. I have to start off by saying that I wasn't too impressed by the style of directing, which was dizzying and clumsy most times. Other times the camera was too close or often shook rounding corners. Pretty much the overall feel is that it's a small-release, independent type of movie. You'll see what I mean when you watch it. There are, however, a few shots of stairwells that were interesting to look at from the perspective provided. What was really enjoyable was the acting. The plot drifts smoothly between comedy and drama nicely without disrespecting its purpose. Sheen delivers yet another phenomenal performance, balancing perfectly the comedic, the affecting and the hard-hitting. Stewart Wright (as Rhodri) delivers an emotional tear-jerking scene describing his character's daughter. I would have placed the camera to the side, but that's my personal taste. Bhasker Patel (as Hasim) was off and on, but was not given much material to work with. The score really stood out, particularly towards the last few scenes where Mark was completely unraveling-- he crashes a party to confront Stevie and Charlotte comes to defend him. This was, in my opinion, the best part of Shirley's performance, later following Mark's character to the beach. Piano and violins can be a dangerous mixture in the wrong hands, but it not only fit the scene, it was quite beautiful and puts you right into the mindset of the moment for the characters. I enjoyed the dialog- particularly in the end, which finished the film and climax just right. Overall I'd say this wouldn't suit a very wide audience; but if you're up for it, it takes the topic of relationships and physical handicaps and adds just enough levity to give you hope for the characters. I would suggest renting alone on a quiet night to see if you like it. Rating 6.5/10
(ag) wrote: The lowest rated Julia Jentsch movie of the four or five I've seen... but it was still excellent... the only real problem coming at the end - or lack of ending where no real change ever takes place in the main character... the story here is interesting and its nice to see a war movie from a different perspective (especially one that just barely brushes the subject of the Holocaust)... and the cinematography is outstanding
(ag) wrote: Alice has reached a point in her life where she feels she needs more....sex. She has a great job and boyfriend who loves her, but with all this stability she wants something that is unstable. She meets Adam and is instantly attracted to him. Their first encounter is one of animal lust. He rips her shirt, kissing her chest and stomach leading down to you know where. At this point she can't take it anymore. She wants it NOW! So he lifts her up, carrying her to another room where they have sex on the floor while his cat watches. Several more encounters occur. Alice dumps her boyfriend and now lives with Adam, but She doesn't know a lot about him and when he asks her to marry him she automatically says yes. Blinded by her own lust, she doesn't see that she's married to a very dangerous man. At least she got the excitement she always wanted.Some of the films dialogue is very laughable, but the direction isn't really that bad. It's quite good, the story is too awkward and makes me think of better erotic thrillers that are out there. This one is like a late night movie on Cinemax.

(au) wrote: Educating Rita is a warm dramedy that rises on the powerful performances from its leads - a solid Michael Caine and a graceful turn from Julie Walters.
(ag) wrote: While it's genuinely slow at times and doesn't really have the greatest mystery, it does build suspense and tension. It's not "Prom Night" but it'll do.
(fr) wrote: Perfect example of a movie I wanted and expected to love but the execution fell flat. Obviously I can't fully appreciate the film in its own time and cultural backdrop, but as a modern viewer it has some problems. The brilliant concept of a black man accidentally getting control of an advertising agency in the 60's - and exactly how that happens - is fantastic, but from there things get wonky. Random strangeness and poor pacing (some of the "commercials" which pepper the film are several minutes long) are key problems. For an 80 minute film it feels pretty long, even though little really happens. While I realize the film works in service to satire rather than a narrative, the narrative still matters - and it is lacking. Thankfully there are several moments of brilliance that ultimately keep things moving.

(mx) wrote: Well acted by Dougray Scott, but that doesn't make up for a flimsy script meaning there is a dull storyline. Such a shame. Let's hope someone can actually make a decent movie of the classic story at some point.
(nl) wrote: This kind of thing worked for Spielberg and Jaws. But in this case, not so much. The director tries to make it like Jaws only with a crocodile and a large one at that. Now crocs are in real life aggressive, so not a bad animal to chose as a "monster" for this type of movie. But what doesn't work is the tension. For me, it just wasn't there, nowhere in this was I on the edge of my seat hoping for survival. Seeing Betty White was cool, her character was weird, and she played weird well. In the end Lake Placid isn't horrible but it isn't the next Jaws. 3/5
