Rem Koolhaas: A Kind of Architect

Rarely has an architect caused as much sensation outside of the architecture community as Rem Koolhaas. His outstanding creations such as the Dutch Embassy in Berlin, the Seattle Library, the Casa da Musica concert hall in Porto, and the Guggenheim Heritage Museum in Las Vegas are working examples of the Dutchman's visionary theories about architecture and urban society. "Rem Koolhaas: A Kind of Architect" is an engaging portrait of a visionary man, which takes us to the heart of his ideas. The filmmakers have made a visually inventive thought provoking portrait of the architect, prompting Rem Koolhaas to state "it's the only film about me that I have liked."

Anthony T (ru) wrote: Best night ever. Worst movie ever

Dylan A (nl) wrote: Crisis on Two Earths has all the usual excitement and action of a Justice League film but the real treat comes from its villain, Owlman, whose nihilistic philosophies and the pan-dimensional resulting apoclyptic desires make him a unique comic book villain

Nina M (it) wrote: Could you make it a bit gayer, please? Seriously, I like gay movies. I like the gay stereotype too, but please, don?t overdo it! It seems they?re trying to make fun of the queer guys/community. Do. Not. Like. I tried to overlook it, but the main character was way too much. I liked the other characters. What about the story? Descent enough, I just didn?t ?feel? it. The actors are bad, and not even that good looking (I did sort of fancy Zeke, but he?s not handsome, he?s weird and quirky). Maybe it?s cool if you?re gay and like comedy. I?m neither gay nor a comedy fan.

Tero H (br) wrote: Almost dreamlike in a way, this movie follows basically two men in a violent quest for revenge. The west may not be wild, but the memories of Civil war are. I found this movie a bit slow, although the actors were great and characters rugged, sweaty, believable. The way the movie ended was totally unexpected and rather odd in my opinion. On the plus side: Great actors in a movie that is inventive, original. The only minus side is the slow pace with which the movie goes on. If this does not bother, and westerns are to your liking, go ahead and see this film.

Sabrina M (nl) wrote: I disliked this movie SO much, I couldn't finish it. Not only was it riddled with historical inaccuracies, but the actor they casted as Dracula was terrible! His attempt at a Romanian accent was so poor, he was better off not even trying! (His 'accent', by the way, faded in and out with every other word--as though he couldn't decide between trying to attempt an accent or just talking normally.) I also disliked the portrayal of Dracula--it came off very unstable, as though there was confusion with how to portray the man. I have no problem with the actor, but I feel he just isn't "Dracula" material. And don't get me started on the absence of Dracula's infamous mustache!

Emerik S (gb) wrote: Long story short, Mr. Magoo wasn't a Disney live-action comedy film for the whole family. But the worst moment in any Disney movies, it's Mr. Magoo, fly upon a boat, over a waterfall, with a bride dress.

Justin O (ru) wrote: An underrated comedy that is touching and funny, plus Michael J. Fox and Kirk Douglas are great.

Dan M (br) wrote: Once again, Tom Hanks shows why he's one of the greatest actors ever and it helps when he has an excellent supporting cast. I have a feeling that the climax was a bit "Hollywood"(ie it didn't really happen that way) but it was thrilling nonetheless.

Lawrence C (ru) wrote: A bloody good, original fantasy/action with solid performances and a cool cast.

Art S (au) wrote: You have to really like Spalding Gray (and to have seen some of his previous monologues) to appreciate Soderbergh's masterly knitting together of excerpts from an array of Gray's public appearances (monologues and otherwise). And I do. Watching this film was like revisiting a long lost but fondly remembered friend. And he is telling all of his old stories and some new ones. In fact, I was surprised at all the things that happened to Spalding Gray since I last checked in with him. Despite having a family (and opening himself up to some dad humor), things took a turn for the sombre after a rough automobile accident in Ireland in 2001 and culminated in Gray's (presumed) suicide in 2004 (from the Staten Island ferry). He talks about death a lot over the years - or perhaps Soderbergh and his editor Susan Littenberg purposely chose death obsessed clips. Nevertheless (and as always), the thing about Gray's monologues is that they are so life affirming (and funny and neurotic and naked). Listening to him talk about his life makes you want to pay more attention to your own - after all, we've all got plenty of fodder for monologues. But, honestly, Gray created a poetic art-form that we are fortunate he shared with us even if the constant sharing itself (along with underlying mental illness) seems to have encouraged a desire for (what he may have sadly perceived to be) the perfect narrative closure.
