(de) wrote: Loosely based on the Pettingill crime family in Melbourne, Australia, David Michd's Animal Kingdom follows the events in the Cody crime family led by its matriarch, Smurf, after Joshua is brought into the family. The other core character outside of the family includes Pope's best friend and the family's partner-in-crime Barry 'Baz' Brown (Joel Edgerton). But what is a crime family, and what goes on within one, especially when it is led by a woman? By putting his own spin into a real life Australian crime family, Michd crafts a different look into the pop cultural phenomenon around crime families which had peaked with Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather back in 1972.Exceeding at how Animal Kingdom balances the act of exposition and visual storytelling beginning with Joshua's narration at the start of the movie, the movie is effectively set up when it comes to his estranged grandmother and uncles. Michd delves into what the audience expects to see, such as Pope being the loose cannon of the family, Smurf's erotic hold over her sons, the violent acts that the Cody family are very much capable of, and how the Armed Robbery Squad are both ruthless and corrupt in their methods with taking out the Codys. It is this balancing act that Michd, the director and writer of The Rover (2014), achieves through the script that has Animal Kingdom delivering on all fronts, where its well-directed and shot scenes move from one to the other with just enough intensity and information to keep the audience guessing where the movie is heading towards, but also not enough for it to be completely predictable, it takes us down the obvious road of answering whether Joshua will succumb to darkness that his mother tried to keep him away from but now finds himself thrust into.While the characters in Animal Kingdom having varying levels of developments, they were all - for the most part - fleshed out just enough that the screen time wouldn't be tipped in their favor at the expense of their fellow characters, with each - including the minor ones - having a pivotal role to play with their motivations and personalities in Michd's grand scheme of the movie which pits members of the Cody family against themselves and the divisive factions in the police force. As everyone in the cast handle their particular roles to near-perfection, Jacki Weaver delivers a standout performance as Smurf, which puts her above and beyond Animal Kingdom's expansive cast of most male actors, as her femininity proves to be a vastly different counterpart to the more masculine leaders of crime families in pop culture, and one that goes on to affect her form of control over the family.

(ag) wrote: There's some interesting tidbits here, but the manner of making the documentary is terrible: Herzog meets up with someone of some relevance and after a brief exchange begins telling that person about his past or about Kinski without any segue -- he is actually talking to the audience while apparently talking to that person, and this makes for a series of very awkward moments as he meets with several people. This method is discomforting enough that it damages the trust that might be placed in Herzog, and of course since Kinski can no longer respond to any of the stories, the overall feeling is that we've learned a few half-truths at best. It's not that Kinski seems like he would be more truthful, but it seems that a real documentary about the director/actor team should have been made from a third party who could interview other collaborators who worked with the two and allow them to speak at greater length about either Herzog or Kinski or both.

(us) wrote: 'Pather Panchali', the first one in Satyajit Ray's 'The Apu Trilogy', is a cinematic masterpiece, and the best one in the trilogy. The story, the characters, the situations, everything in this movie overflows with such excruciating reality and brilliance. It well-deservedly won the 'Best Human Document Award' at the 1956 Cannes Film Festival. No matter how old and slow the movie is, it's captivating and extremely absorbing from the very beginning, and shows the heights a film, at its best, is capable of achieving. It stands out because of its poetry, its humanity, its haunting lyric beauty, its imagery, and its remarkable portrayal of a family and a culture.Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay's impressive screenplay, along with Satyajit Ray's exceptional direction, portrayed through powerful performances by every actor in the movie, makes it the film that it is.Ray's direction is top-notch and one-of-a-kind. The characters, their hopes and dreams, their behaviour and relationships - everything is shown with such brutal realism, relatability and poignancy. I was really able to empathize, and feel the angst and pain of the characters. And if this is not enough, imagine this was Ray's debut movie, and made on a budget that wouldn't buy a five-star meal these days!The movie proves why Satyajit Ray is referred to as the Grand Master of World Cinema. This first part in the trilogy takes you through the starting years of Apu's childhood when he was living in his ancestral home in Bengal, with his parents and sister. The dual themes of progress and loss form the core of this film, as well as the whole trilogy.On a personal note, this is the best film I've ever seen which explores childhood so stunningly. The movie's places, characters and every other thing reminded me of something from my childhood; it was nostalgic and heart-wrenchingly beautiful. There are so many scenes of the siblings which remind wondrous events from one's childhood: the pursuit of a sweet-seller, running across white fields to catch a glimpse of a moving train, a simple picnic among friends in the forest, playfully getting wet in rain, and hiding some evidence so that the other sibling doesn't into trouble.Even the range of intriguing characters in the film is vast; the hardworking but seldom-present father, the overburdened mother, the innocent siblings exploring the world around them, the always complaining or blaming neighbour/landlord, and the old and usually silent old lady in the neighbourhood who's always in her own world. Even at this age, the Trilogy is considered to be one of the most important and brilliant pieces of Cinematic History. Legendary Japanese Filmmaker, Akira Kurosawa once aptly said: "Not to have seen the cinema of Ray means existing in the world without seeing the sun or the moon."

Richard Gere's John Clark was cool and he had splendid chemistry with his on-screen wife, played by the uber sexy Susan Sarandon. Jennifer Lopez was an excellent dancer but her acting skills left much to be desired. Stanley Tucci was awesome as usual and his portrayal of Link was absolutely hilarious. The rest of the supporting cast were pretty good as well and I got a kick out of seeing Tony Dovolani (as "Slick Willy") and Karina Smirnoff (as Link's pouty dance partner) from "Dancing with the Stars" and also Mya, as Vern's fiance they made a super cute on-screen couple. Overall, this was a pretty good film, but the original Japanese version was still better.
