During the 1920s he was an Italian Fascist supporter, fighting in Africa an in the Spanish civil war where he deserved a safe conduct for Spanish embassies. After some years, disillusioned by fascism, he is a fresh supplier for the Italian army. In the war years he is in Budapest for his business. He lives an easy life there, well introduced into the Hungarian high society, without any problem coming from the war situation. When the Nazi occupied Hungary, in 1944, instead to leave (Italy had already surrendered to the Allies) he escaped to the Spanish embassy in Budapest using his old safe conduct and becoming a Spanish citizen, changing name into Jorge Perlasca. He starts working as a diplomat here. When Sanz Briz (Geza Tordy), the Spanish consul, is removed, Perlasca immediately substitutes him, like if he was officially appointed from Spanish authorities... Written by 1felco

Spencer S (fr) wrote: Creative personalities, however bright their stars gleam, collapse under the weight of the world's pressures. Harlan Ellison, the brightest of all these literary stars, takes these impossible problems and swallows them whole. So is the subject of this insightful documentary, centering on the giant, with awards in the genres of sci-fi, mystery, and political commentary. Not only has this pillar written 70 novels, hundreds of short stories, nonfiction, teleplays, and screenplays, but is one of the most interesting human beings I have ever seen. Following his life in the limelight as an intellectual of unparalleled comparison, and his early years as a downtrodden Jewish teen in anti-Semitic Ohio, we are given a complicated maze in which to extract the personage of Ellison. Not only is he against all forms of bullsh*t, but was a figure in the civil rights movement, and a mouthpiece for education. Putting the praises aside, the trailer reveals the true payoff, which is that Ellison is also an intolerable narrator of his own life. He has awesome (and I mean that as in awe inspiring) knowledge to lay down in commentary throughout the film, speaking of what it is to be a writer, a famous personality, and an independent entity among the Hollywood elite and cultural milieu. He is loud, obnoxious, and at times reviles you, but is so entertaining and uncaring of the views of populist America, that not to appreciate his audacity feels like heresy. In the midst of all that prophecy he lays down, he is also a bitter, old, angry man, but with the credentials he has, it's hard to imagine him being anything resembling timid. He is, by all accounts, the most original person alive. Peppering his own narration is that of Robin Williams, Neil Gaiman, and Dan Simmons, great artists who not only see him as a glorious person, but the human he so truly embodies. This, is a film you must see, and cannot fully be explained. A film where creativity blooms, ripe to pick for the eager mind.
Steve B (ag) wrote: The main plot outline to this movie is similar in sorts to 'Casualties of War'. It's one of those 'documentary feel' movies capturing views, actions and the truth behind what could or even is going on out there in Afganistan. I felt this movie shows the US soldiers in a slightly real or bad light as human soldiers and not unstoppable war machines, like us can still break, have feelings and make mistakes. It was interesting to see the different ways for footage to be shown, night vision, weblink, helmet cams, news feeds security cams etc. With the style as it is don't expect big shootouts or stuntwork. The truth from behind a camera. Or is it?

Robyn M (jp) wrote: Moving Violations is Director Neal Isreal's least favored motion picture. However After he established his work in Hollywood with Collectively popular Police Academy prequels & sequels.The quirky and eccentric comedy was made to rest with dust on a shelf. I really believe that when unpopular films are reviewed years later, it offers a glimpse at what was going on during that time. Kinda like a capsule.

Dustin G (ag) wrote: I Live In Fear is very direct and even melodramatic, but its piercing commentary and fiery performances, as well as Kurosawa's well trained eye, make for a ballsy exploration into the anxious mind.

Sunny K (ca) wrote: I may be biased because I'm a cop, but this is one movie I can watch over and over again. The plot is a basic, yet incredibly twisted one. Seeing as there is an actual war on cops these days, this movie was ahead of its time. In terms of being authentic; from an actual police officers point of view, it is just that. There are some parts (apartment fight between civilian and cop), that don't quite pinpoint the realism of police work. However, the interactions between Zavala and Taylor felt very real and the camaraderie was all on point. The story is excellent, the realism is there. The only real gripe I have is that the "bad guys" could have used a better backstory.
Simon D (de) wrote: just rewatched this for the first time since the late 80's. This is probably the only film I have ever seen where I can say that the make-up was the best part of the film. The actors were very annoying and the story was a lot less complex than I remembered. I guess I'm gonna have to watch the sequels now to try and understand exactly why this became a cult classic in nerd circles.

Mike C (mx) wrote: Look it, there's no doubt Moore is a provocateur. But is there not some truth in what he says?In this instance, he examines some of the broken systems in America (there are many) and goes to country where those same systems work very well. I'm quite sure the issues are more complicated than what Mr. Moore depicts in this movie, but on the same hand, it's hard to fuck things up more than they are in our country. What's our answer? Criticize Michael Moore. Say we're No. 1. Elect a guy like Donald Trump to our highest office.Imagine there's no country sang John Lennon. If you can do that, I think you'd be hard pressed to call anything in America No. 1. To me, the patriotic thing to do is fix our broken systems. Looking at successful countries seems like a pretty reasonable step in doing that. That's what Moore has done with this movie.
