Pope Joan

Pope Joan

A 9th century woman of English extraction born in the German city of Ingelheim disguises herself as a man and rises through the Vatican ranks.

German village Igelheims backward priest hopes his sons to succeed him after education in the cathedral school of bishop, but the elder succumbs to disease and the youngest lacks any intellectual drive. Traveling teacher Aesculapius arranges for the inquisitive daughter Johanna to be enrolled too, against wishes of their father. Unfit for the boys-only dorm, she gets to stay with count Gerold, incurring due jealousy of his wife. She has to be dismissed, but survives a Viking pillaging slaughter and assumes brother Johannes';s identity to join a monastery, where she becomes a trainee of the infirmary. Fleeing exposure as female, she arrives in Rome. As a protégée of rivals in the viper nest-like papal court, she ends up elected as pope, but carries count Gerolds baby, guaranteeing exposure. .

Steve W (gb) wrote: What's the one thing that can be as infectious as any virus? A rumor. Tabloid Truth explores the dark underbelly of sensationalism and paparazzi, as a young actress finds herself under scrutiny as she is on her way to stardom. When she commits suicide, her manager will stop at nothing to find the truth, and the truth is never pretty.Combining a tight pace with wicked social commentary, Tabloid Truth is a razor edge conspiracy thriller and hidden look at the bad things people cover up and hide from public view.

Enrique M (nl) wrote: Along with Spartan and Heist, this is definitely one of Mamet's best pictures. It's only a matter of time before consistently effective Chiwetel Ejiofor gets an Oscar nod. The film's abrupt ending has received criticism, but one should expect nothing less from a filmmaker known for his economy of storytelling.

Louis C (jp) wrote: This is up there amoung my all-time favourite decolonial films. The film is fabulous and was only made better by the behind-the-scenes documentary. In the film, it was a challenge to witness the trickling movement from Shamanism to Christianity without feeling some despair. Why this is an important film is that it stands as testimony to how Christianity was not successful in taking the Innu out of the Inuit. At the end of the documentary, Zacharias Kunuk shares that in spite of this movement, the ancestors are still around, waiting to come back. The collective effort in producing this film only strengths this statement. Despair, be gone. Hello healing, our old friend.

Michelle (nl) wrote: They seem to have tried hard to tell an interesting, complex story, but [b]Jericho Mansions[/b] just so failed on me. It was a bore, and I didn't really understand half of what the problem was until about the second half of the movie. Also the atmosphere is so flat throughout the whole movie. I can only give props to the cinematography here.

Kim K (br) wrote: A great comedy. It has a sick and twisted sense of humor.

Jeffrey M (ca) wrote: An impressive directorial debut for Kevin Spacey, who was able to effectively use the confined parameters of the story (most of it taking place in one location) to create a tense thriller. Strong cast as well, especially Matt Dillon. Though ultimately an unrealistic plot, the script has enough twists and interesting dialogue to keep the film moving along at a good pace.

Bill B (kr) wrote: Gave this a re-watch, it's still as silly and campy as the first viewing a few years back.Valley Girls at the end of the world, fighting zombies and the military that doesn't know how to deal with things anymore.Yeah, it's a silly concept, it's *painfully* neon and 80's-centric, but I liked it quite a bit and will happily return to it in the future.Give it a rental.

Steve M (mx) wrote: "Silkwood" is a haunting examination of how one woman (Karen Silkwood) risk her life and her job to uncover dangerous practices before getting killed in a mysterious single car accident. As possibly his third best movie next to "The Graduate" and "Angels in America," Mike Nichols does a great job in portraying Silkwood's life before the shit hit the fan and her constant fear and paranoia. Meryl Streep delivers an outstanding performance as Silkwood, along with great supporting turns from Kurt Russell and Cher.

RayNormanBateman (ag) wrote: This is definitely my favourite sequel, specially the unedited version that has been released where it show more brutality than what they wanted to at that time. All the planet of the apes films had something that makes them stand out.. this one is pretty much like dawn of the planet of the apes minus all the cgi.. very surprised at the bad reviews by critics. Worth a watch out of all the sequels.
