The dysfunctional Chinese justice system allows citizens with grievances against their local governments to petition the court to clear or correct their record. Yet in order to do so, the petitioners must travel to Beijing to file paperwork and wait an indefinite period to plead their case. Following the saga of a group of petitioners over the years of 1996 and 2008, Petition unfolds like a novel by Zola or Dickens. This was filmed surreptitiously from the point of view of the petitioners, and not the justice officials, the police, or those heavies sent by the municipalities.

(fr) wrote: I would not recommend this movie. It's pretentious, and it's overly ambitious in the sense that the filmmaker thinks (for some reason) that the audience will enjoy this film. Do yourself a favor and ignore this one.
(gb) wrote: This movie is adequate in its mediocrity, considering that there's nothing interesting or excting about it. It's so painfully dull, that you'll have to force yourself to watch it, in order to try to watch it. Everything about it sucks. 1/10 They sould've called this movie: "Naomi Watt's acting career," considering that Naomi Watts plays an actress in this movie. This movie shows what Naomi Watts probably does in her spare time.
(mx) wrote: Let me break it down real easy for you fools. The only well directed and acted Crow film was the first one. All the others don't even deserve a single star. And to the idiot that said Edward Furlong had a deep and passionate performance...you obviously have no idea what you are talking about. The film was poorly directed, had no decent character development, made me feel nothing for the characters, and EDWARD FURLONG is NOT The Crow. Talk about poor casting. Could he play a pathetic withdrawn video game player that enjoys killing people digitally all day or a whiney irritating supporting actor in Terminator 2? Yes. But that's it. What has he actually been in to give him some extraordinary recognition? What? Pet Cemetery !? Don't make me laugh. Steve Buscemi could have played a way better Crow...no joke. Tara Reid's appearance in the movie is irrelevant. Any first day actress sucking off the director out back could have pulled this role off better. She clearly has no talent...just like Ben Affleck. This movie was boring and slapped together and it shows. I would have been better off watching Midget Star Trek Porn...at least I would have had a few laughs. So to all you reviewers out there that had any, and I mean anything positive to say about this abortion of a movie, you are obviously a complete moron, so feel free to retort at my Facebook. It's time for me to go watch a real movie now. How about Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan?....that's a real movie.

(it) wrote: This movie plays like it's a commercial for both the Army and Shakespeare. A very odd combination you might think. Yet somehow it seems to work. What it really ends up being is a heartwarming tale of some soldiers and how they learn to improve themselves through genuinely learning something. Sure, the whole thing is a little cheesy and artificial, but it's one of those feel good films that you can't help but smile while watching. This is what everyone wishes the teacher-student relationship could be like. The teacher enriches the minds of the students, and the students touch the heart of the teacher. This sometimes makes the whole thing come off a bit like a fantasy, but if you can suspend disbelief a little you can't help but be touched by some of the scenes. I find myself emotionally involved every time I watch this movie. The characters' different storylines are all interesting, and you can really start to care about what happens to them. Perhaps the biggest downfall of the movie is the far-fetched nature of it all. I mean the idea that learning some Shakespeare will magically transform incompetent people into star pupils is ridiculous. Despite this I still enjoy watching it. Renaissance Man is one of those films that draws me in every time it's on TV and I end up watching the whole thing.

(ca) wrote: Woman in the Dunes, otherwise known as Stockholm Syndrome: the Movie, is a film that I knew nothing about before watching. I was totally shocked when I realized what was going on. It almost felt like a Twilight Zone episode with that twist. It was easy to sympathize with the protagonist for most of the film, although I kept wondering why he couldn't articulate all the ways freedom was preferable to this woman's life. The movie dragged on a lot longer than I think it needed to, but I suppose the length helps justify that finale. I didn't really understand the society or why they behaved in certain ways, for instance the big spectator scene was just disturbing. I think the film was effective, but tough to watch. Not exactly a recipe for a film I will love. However it is definitely a well-made movie, and it evoked a feeling that allowed me to get into the mindset of the protagonist which is a tough thing to do.
(it) wrote: Dive Bombers was better than what I expected, much better. I think it can be close to a good classic, exceptionally good acting (Fred MacMurry, Errol Flynn, and Ralph Bellamy), that was true to its word. they just had to cut out the lame comedy with the navy, didn't fit in at all. Although it was an Interesting and simple story, with a nice ending to end it all.
(de) wrote: Extremely lengthy and controversial due to its racist point of view, Gone with the Wind is an overrated American classic that boasts technical prowess and superb acting - particularly Vivien Leigh's landmark performance as Scarlett O'Hara - while lacks historical accuracy or sympathetic heroes.
(au) wrote: Innovative and smart.Because there is no dialogue then actions and themes are more perceptible, and the theme here is as relevant today as then.Really refreshing to watch an old movie like this from time to time.
