Three intercut stories about outsiders, sex and violence. In "Hero," Richie, at age 7, kills his father and flies away. After the event, a documentary in cheesy lurid colors asks what Richie was like and what led up to the shooting. In the black and white "Horror," a scientist isolates the elixir of human sexuality, drinks it, and becomes a festering, contagious murderer; a female colleague who loves him tries to help, to her peril. In "Homo," a prisoner in Fontenal prison is drawn to an inmate whom he knew some years before, at Baton juvenile institute, and whose humiliations he witnessed. This story is told in dim light, except for the bright flashbacks.

Alexander Z (us) wrote: Retread of the original. It manages to be creepy yet boring simultaneously, which is a pretty interesting feat to pull off. I was actually intrigued by the new plot elements the sequel introduced, so I won't trash it like a lot of people have. It's less a horror film and more of a exploration of the world of the first Grave Encounters. Changing your expectations may lead to a decent time spent watching this.

The rest of the philosophers made out to make themselves sound very smart and well-read regarding ethics studies, too, for the limited time they had to take the floor. Some more than others. The lovely pair of women strolling around San Francisco, talking about disabilities and such were sweet. I have to say Cornel West, on the other hand, blows nothing but random bits of smoke out of his ass. For some long moments while watching him and a few others, aside from Zizek, I waited for a point, an applied theory, anything beyond Academia-based personal regurgitation. Knowing concepts thoroughly is one thing, and showing others you know about concepts is another, but original ideas are what I wanted go more of in the Examined Life. Innovation.
Matthew M (au) wrote: A completely awful film that treats rape and murder as pastimes, and it's only saving grace is that it treats religion with as much contempt I do. By reading the sleevenote synopsis you could easily be fooled into thinking this is a revenge thriller. It isn't. What it is is a desperately poor attempt at nailing that particular genre, and completely missing the mark, with the end result being a tasteless, misogynistic, ugly bit of filmmaking. Whilst you are definitely on th side of the girl seeking revenge for her rape and the rape and murder of her jezebel sister, she's so completely pathetic that you rapidly lose any interest and you just don't give a flying fuck anymore.

Jens T (us) wrote: John Huston's Fat City is the story about the former boxer Billy Tully (Stacy Keach) who after a divorce struggles to find a job, or in other words: a job he likes. He also discover the nineteen-year-old boy, Ernie Munger (Jeff Bridges) at the YMCA and recommends him to his former trainer. Ernie follows Billy's advice and start boxing, while Billy is trying to get back into boxing himself. But he has troubles with his nagging alcoholic girlfriend, Oma (Susan Tyrrell). Ernie also has girl problems himself, by being mentally forced into marry his girlfriend, Faye. In a way, both Billy and Ernie mirror each other.Fat City is not one of Huston's greatest films, but he proves to us that he's able to keep up with the times, with this contemporary drama. I really liked Stacy Keach rough performance as the veteran boxer that might have an ace up his sleeve. And also the young Jeff Bridges does a fine performance as the rookie kid whom we know are doomed to end up like Keach's character. Although Susan Tyrrell's performance was the one that got an Oscar nomination, I was actually not that impressed by her performance. I felt it was some overacting, or I just found her character annoying. Overall, I liked Fat City, specially it's characters and the music. It was a little boring sometimes, but I liked it fair enough. I only wish there were more boxing. Thumbs up.
