Plimpton! Starring George Plimpton as Himself
Plimpton! tells the story of writer, editor, amateur sportsman and friend to many, George Plimpton.

(kr) wrote: This movie had for me a kind of David Cronenberg(ish) feel but with slightly worse acting and a couple of body horror clichs (nail). It has a pretty solid ending though.
(ru) wrote: It has it's moments, but Happy Feet Too just isn't as good or memorable as it's predecessor.
(nl) wrote: Great female cast lead by a very impressive Hawkins, but also standouts from Richardson and James. Empowering story. Great script. A film not to be missed. Weirdly ignored at award times this year?
(au) wrote: Great family feel good film from Walt Disney

(jp) wrote: Two convicts plot escape while they labour like Trojans in the prison workshop, mechanistically assembling wooden horses. Only one will manage to scale the walls, but he will go on to found a commercial empire, establishing himself as a major gramophone manufacturer. Years later, the second convict again crosses his path - he does so after having been coerced into becoming an employee, labouring in the factory, slavishly following the pace of the conveyor belt as he makes his small contribution to the assembly of gramophones. But he's not the only one to uncover the industrialist's past.Rene Clair uses music, satire, and slapstick comedy to hammer home his commentary on the dehumanising effects of industrialisation. Released in 1931, it pays lavish tribute to Chaplin, Keaton, the Keystone Cops, and the comedy of the recently passed silent era. A big hit in its day, Clair's film would prove inspirational - Chaplin's 1936 "Modern Times" is based upon it.The DVD provides an excellent black and white transfer and good sound quality - if a little quiet in places. Though dated in its style and simplistic in its political analysis, this remains a significant classic of European cinema which continues to entertain and amuse.
