In 1951 New York poet Elizabeth Bishop travels to Rio de Janeiro to visit Mary, a college friend. The shy Elizabeth is overwhelmed by Brazilian sensuality. She is the antithesis to Mary’s dashing partner, architect Lota de Macedo Soares. Although frosty at first, the architect soon makes a play for Elizabeth and the poet finally succumbs to Lota’s advances. Mary is jealous, but unconventional Lota is determined to have both women at all costs. Their ménage à trois is thrown off balance when Lota starts work on her biggest project to date, designing Parque do Flamengo in Rio. Elizabeth accepts an academic teaching post in the USA and the women drift apart. Lota, at all other times brimming with self-confidence, is inconsolable. This eternal triangle plays out against the backdrop of the military coup of 1964. Bishop’s moving poems are at the core of a film which lushly illustrates a crucial phase in the life of this influential Pulitzer prize-winning poet

Adam M (de) wrote: Horror based around the true story of Lizzie Borden, a teenager accused of killing her parents with a hatchet years ago. Lizzie Allen and her boyfriend move into the same house Lizzie grew up in. The same house the Lizzie Borden murders happened. And its not long before Lizzie is having nightmares, is seeing things and time just escapes her. She's getting medical help but her doctor can't seem to help her and it looks like things are heading for a shitty end for both Lizzie and her boyfriend. It's interesting the way the film makers have wrapped a modern story around the original events and there are some creepy bits and a bit of gore to but overall Lizzie struggles a bit to maintain interest throughout despite the decent back story. Worth a look for horror fans maybe but nothing special.

Jessica W (nl) wrote: A simple, comfortable and pleasant film that packs a strangely emotional punch. Almost catches you by surprise, but the heartfelt, tear-jerking parts of the storyline are what elevate this otherwise average film into a darling that's worthy of being appreciated.Enjoy it for what it's worth. It won't change your life or anything, but this is a beauty with substance.

Private U (ru) wrote: It's meant to be a warm, fuzzy, heartwarming movie, and it's just that. Along with some comic relief and silliness, I'd be more than happy to watch it again, even though it's not going to be a top 10 of the year.
James H (kr) wrote: 49/100. I am sure the makers of For Keeps meant well, but the writing is so trite, and surprisingly sloppy direction from John G. Avildsen. It is not very well acted by anyone, except Conchata Farrell. The whole story just doesn't ring true. It's just phony and therefore not very moving.
Will W (de) wrote: John Boorman's version of the King Arthur legend is an enjoyable epic. I like the big scope of the film (which opted to include everything from Arthur's childhood and the sword in the stone, to the knights of the round table, to the rivalry between Merlin and the enchantress Morgana, to the quest for the holy grail, and more). I think the film can take itself too seriously at times, and some of the overwrought performances make the movie drag. Nicol Williamson played an interesting Merlin who had a goofy sense of humor, and later, a dark side. If you have just a casual interest in the Arthur legend , this movie might be boring. If you like sword and sorcery movies, this one is well done.

I may have to watch it again to appreciate more. I am a huge Fassbinder fan. The disguises they have on at the end are hilarious.

Dann M (au) wrote: Directed by Renny Harlin, Mindhunters is a psychological horror-thriller that's full of suspense. The story follows a group of FBI profilers-in-training who are sent to a remote island for a training exercise, but things take a turn when it's discovered that there's a killer among them. Starring Christian Slater, Kathryn Morris, Jonny Lee Miller, LL Cool J, and Patricia Velasquez, the film has a solid cast. And, Harlin's directing brings a lot of intensity to the film. Also, the writing is pretty good at setting up intrigue and engages the audience; as the intricate death traps used by the killer intensifies the action and heightens the suspense. However, as with a lot of horror films, the characters aren't fully fleshed out and there are some weaknesses with the plot. Yet overall, Mindhunters is an entertaining and chilling film.
Robert H (kr) wrote: TYRANNOSAUR is no easy film to take in. It is a window into a very harsh, unforgiving environment populated with with people that have a lot of personal pain. It is also brutally honest in its assessment of the world as a violent place that pushes us to our limits. Still, it isn't all depressing because of chance encounters in which we meet people who seem to be very different from us on the surface, masking pain that is very similar to our own. This is the type of story that TYRANNOSAUR tells, and all from first-time feature director Paddy Considine. He gets strikingly real performances out of his actors and shows a firm directorial hand. There is hardly anything to gripe about here, save a couple of moments of animal cruelty which could turn off a lot of people. I must admit that I was somewhat revolted in those scenes, but they still felt organic to the story. One major theme explored is what people do when pushed to their limits, and there are many instances throughout the film in which this is shown. I don't really want to spoil anything specific, so if a dark psychological drama is something you're into then this will probably be one of the best you'll see.
