(au) wrote: This film crossed my threshold for acceptable violence after about 1&1/2 hours, then it started losing points. Lots of bloody, gritty stabbings, bludgeonings and torture. There is no character to really side with. Even the main protagonist is as much a bad guy as anyone else. There are bitter-sweet movies, and then there's just bitter movies like this. Will appeal to some.Well made though, I'll give it that.

Generally, I actually prefer that films have a slant that gives me the filmmaker's perspective on the events, since the creative team probably knows the subject matter more than I do. While I think the director aimed for a slanted story that exonerates the Friedmans (to some degree) this film really left me wondering whether the main subject of the film, Jesse Friedman, was guilty or innocent of sexually abusing young boys.Regardless of what the answer is, one thing is certain: Jesse's dad, Arnold, had problems with pedophilia - problems which he tried to suppress and conquer, but which he nonetheless failed to keep in check. As a result, the whole family suffered, and that suffering is on display through home video footage taken during both Arnold and Jesse's trials. There is no voiceover narration, and the film bounces back and forth between alleged victims of sexual abuse, and the Friedmans themselves. The director's choice of title for the film alludes to his likely opinion that the Friedmans were captured for an invented crime by the police, who may have pressured the kids into saying what they wanted to hear. At the same time, several kids claiming to have been raped multiple times came forward to testify against the two, and with Albert already having admitted to molestation of boys in the past, it isn't difficult to believe that it could happen again.After watching the film, I did a bit of research online, and it now appears fairly clear to me that Jesse was unjustly pressured into a guilty plea for crimes he most likely did not commit. Even if he did commit some of them, the amount of influence his sexually disturbed father had on him must be taken into account.This is one aspect of the case that I appreciate the film for digging into. There is glimpse into the "why" behind Albert's pedophilia, which is something I don't recall seeing in other investigations involving child molesters. How do they get to be the way they are? It turns out that Albert's mother used to frequently have sex with her boyfriends in front of him as a child, causing him to later admit that when he was 13, he tried having sex with his younger brother. His misguided and confused sexuality turned him into a very screwed up adult.All in all, a very unforgettable film that left me with a lot to think about afterward. Props to the filmmakers for taking on such risky subject matter and pulling it off so well.

(jp) wrote: Tampopo is a light-hearted feel-good comedy with a heavy focus on making a winning bowl of ramen and setting up a great shop. There were quite a few bits I found to be random which were probably cultural references but if you are amused by randomness then you'll find they flow in with the rest of the general wackiness. While I don't rate it quite on the level of Cantonese comedies such as the God of Cookery, Tampopo is still a fun view.
(au) wrote: It took me over ten years to bring myself to watch this. With these low expectations, I enjoyed it. The Vampire gang were fairly wank but nobody plays a really annoying cunt like Parker Posey. Blades crew are not much better. A serious twitch off Jessica Biel but when the premise of the flick involves Blade going toe to toe with Dracula, it fails to deliver.
(ca) wrote: On Mardi Gras in New Orleans, the ferry Sen. Alvin T. Stumpf is carrying hundreds of U.S. Navy sailors and their families across the Mississippi River from their base to the city. Suddenly, the ferry explodes and sinks, killing 543 passengers and crew members. Special Agent Douglas Carlin (Denzel Washington) from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATF) is sent to investigate and discovers evidence of a bomb planted by a domestic terrorist. Arriving at the scene he hears his unique ring tone coming from a nearby body bag. He then meets with local investigators and FBI Special Agent Paul Pryzwarra (Val Kilmer), and informs them of his findings. He learns about a charred body pulled from the river, identified as Claire Kuchever (Paula Patton). Unlike the other bodies from the ferry, though, this one was killed before the explosion. Pryzwarra is impressed with Doug's detective expertise, and asks him to join a newly formed governmental detective unit whose first case is to investigate the bombing. Led by Dr. Alexander Denny (Adam Goldberg), they investigate the events before the explosion by using a program called "Snow White", which enables them to look into the past (4 days, 6 hours, 3 minutes, 45 seconds, 14.5 nanoseconds) in detail by using several satellites to form a triangulated image of events. The system is limited in that they can only see past events once; there is no fast forwarding or rewinding, although they can record everything in the process. Convinced that Claire is a vital link, Doug persuades them to focus on her. While investigating Claire's past through "Snow White", the bomber calls her to buy the SUV that she has for sale so he can use it for the bomb. Although he doesn't buy her car, the "Snow White" team now knows exactly where and when the terrorist was during the call. Doug finds out "Snow White" is actually a time window, and can send inanimate objects into the past. Despite Denny's protests against tampering with the past, Doug has the team send a note back to his past self with the time and place to stop the ferry bomber. Instead, his partner Larry Minuti gets the note and while following up on it he is shot by the terrorist, and setting up his death in the present. The team attempts to follow the terrorist, who takes Minuti with him, but he moves outside of "Snow White"'s range. However, Doug is able to follow him in the present using a "Snow White" like helmet that increases the machine's range, and able to track him to the terrorist's home. In the past time, Minuti regains consciousness, but is killed and burned by the terrorist. Still needing a vehicle big enough to hold the bomb (and is not riddled with bullet holes) the terrorist goes to Claire's address, kidnaps her and takes her car. Using face recognition technology the ferry bomber is identified and taken into custody. He turns out to be Carroll Oerstadt (Jim Caviezel), angry at the military after being turned down by both Marines and Army, because their psychological profiling showed he was psychologically unstable. Considering the case now closed, the government shuts down the "Snow White" investigation. Despite the killer having been caught, Claire and the ferry victims remain dead, which unsettles Doug since he is convinced that the "Snow White" team can actually alter history. Doug convinces Denny to do one last experiment, that is: send Doug to the past to save Claire and stop the bombing; a risky procedure, since no human has ever been sent back... Rotten Tomatoes consensus states, "Tony Scott tries to combine action, science fiction, romance, and explosions into one movie, but the time travel conceit might be too preposterous and the action falls apart under scrutiny." Joel Siegel of ABC News called the film technically "well-made," but criticized its attempt to describe a supposedly scientific basis for time travel as both silly and dull, as did Manohla Dargis of The New York Times, who additionally found the depiction of parishes decimated by Hurricane Katrina "vulgar". Todd Gilchrist from IGN rated the film eight out of ten, calling it a "bravura set piece", despite an ending that "feels inappropriate given the urgency (and seeming inevitability) of the story's dnouement." Likewise, Michael Wilmington of the Orlando Sentinel rated the film three out of four stars, citing the "good cast, Tony Scott's swift direction, and unyielding professionalism" as rationale for his rating. Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times described the film's exploration of the nature of time and the implications of time travel as having been a "sci-fi staple for generations".Tony Scott (rest in peace) had his ways of making films, often with over the top of everything and a liking of adding all and everything in one bag of goodies. That resulted often in a spinning head from all the impressions containing of crazy editing, bombs and explosions, macho idealism and exstensive violence. With "Deja Vu" Scott had a script with an added time-travel set up which can be an interesting topic if you write it in a proper way and that you dont end up in so many angles and ideas within the topic so you confuse the viewer. I reckon Scott had issues with fitting in the time-travel part, even if that was the bearing part of the script it seems, since it becomes slightly incohesive and not clear at all times. That is however not only the problem, the script is quite one dimensional and a bit ridiculous putting a professional terrorist in the centre with hurt feelings after having been turned down by both the Marines and the Army, because their psychological profiling showed he was psychologically unstable. While the script couldve been aiming at creating a more "richer" background to this modern day terrorism we see on a global scale and trying to make a proper statement, it becomes just a normal action vehicle with no real layers and no real insights. And the time-travel aspect just makes the film slightly confusing and hardly adds to making "Deja Vu" more intriguing. Plus with plot holes are all over the place, you lose the thread early in the film. Denzel Washington does a "Denzel" no more no less, Val Kilmer is not on his top level, Jim Caviezel does what he can to make Oerstadt a despicable person and the truly beautiful and intriguing Paula Patton doesnt get enough screen time (whats new in Hollywood...). "Deja Vu" is not a must see in any ways. Trivia: Scriptwriters Terry Rossio and Bill Marsilii didn't feel Tony Scott recaptured everything in the screenplay. They felt he was more interested in the action scenes, rather than the intricacies of time travel. They wrote a plot that was airtight, but in Scott's hands, the finished product is now filled with plot holes. Rossio was so disillusioned with Deja Vu (2006), he's never seen the film. Scott also admitted he did a mediocre job directing the film, but blamed that on the nineteen-week production schedule, which wasn't as long as he wanted.

Gloriously ridiculous fun for those with an affection for this kind of thing.
