Picasso and Braque Go to the Movies
The influence that artists Pablo Picasso and George Braque had on the world of cinema is the subject of this documentary from filmmaker Arne Glimcher. A lifelong lover of film, Picasso was intrigued by the machines used to create moving pictures, as well as the images they produced. In this film, artists such as Martin Scorsese, Julian Schnabel, Chuck Close, and the late Robert Rauschenberg reveal how Picasso and Braque's shared love of film helped to create some of the greatest art of the 20th Century. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

(br) wrote: The cruel ignorance of a fishing party is exposed, too intent on enjoying their lads day away to respect the human dignity of a murder victim. Themes of cultural misunderstanding are handled quite sympathetically but it comes across as a bit too worthy and liberal. The refusal to "solve" the murder makes the story end on a dissonant note, whereas the otherwise reconciliatory tone isn't quite credible.Gabriel Byrne is good. It reminded me a little of the Elfriede Jelinek book Greed, though that is a considerably tougher study of some broadly similar sorts of ideas.
(ru) wrote: Most would argue this film is only talked about for it's lengthy and notorious rape scene, but there's obviously more to it than that. For one, it is brilliantly shot. Not many filmmakers can stylishly upset his audience and drag them to the point of no return. It's masterful. It's also very unsettling, which is why it is good filmmaking. I'm not recommending it. I don't think it needs to be analyzed to death either. I say no more, I'm already preaching to the fucking choir!!!

Holiday Heart is an all to real story about a drag queen, trying to take care of a little girl who's mother has become a crack addtic, who is willing to let her daughter get raped, just to have a hit of cocaine. Ving Rahmes is also good as Holiday, a drag queen who really wants to take care of this little girl, but doesn't know how. If you can seat though it's intense images, and sad story, than I recomend it, if not, than this movie is't for you.

(fr) wrote: A bit of meta-level philosophizing is all right, but Wenders, who has a troubling tendency toward long-windedness, takes it too far. In those last moments when Friedrich laments the lost innocence of filmmaking, ``Lisbon Story'' loses its playfulness and starts to hector, like too many of Wenders' efforts, with ambitious, tedious pontificating.
(kr) wrote: Not as bad as everyone has said. Seeing the leads' relationship play out was interesting and the movie's tone was consistent & light throughout. Not as good as There's Something About Mary, but definitely a good comedy to rent one rainy night.
(jp) wrote: Utter crap. The sort of film people pretend to like to appear cultured.
(de) wrote: Its a fair good movie.
(fr) wrote: The movie captivates the audience with the beauty and excellent performance from an incredible cast that brings the story to life.
(es) wrote: The laughable title gives no indication of the truly memorable and rather believable sci-fi adventure film that follows the opening credits. A gem!
