(ca) wrote: Zeynep works as a housekeeper at the motel. She never smiles and has a very cold, distant disposition about herself. There is a boy, Mustafa, who pines for her affection, but she openly rejects it. Zeynep is alienated and alone. She lives with her father in a small house and we come to learn that the brunt, if not all, of this depression comes from her abusive father. Angel's Fall is a beautiful film that illustrates the design of fate which exists in this mystical existence. It's the definition of a character study, as we see this girl struggle mightily with the demons in her life. It's a slow paced film that explores all the details of Zeynep's life. The film never ventures into self-pity though, as Zeynep is clearly someone who is looking for redemption from the shame she has been put through at the hands of her father. There are countless scenes where she visits the mausoleums, participating in various prayers and rituals, desperately trying to save herself from this fate. The film features almost no music at all as if the director didn't' want tot give us any possible feelings or emotions outside of what we see in Zeynep. The home in which she lives in with her father is very cold and stagnate. The two of them rarely ever have a conversation and the mundane cold cinematography helps to encapsulate this alienated state. The film never even comes close to being manipulative and deals with the sexual abuse sequence in a very natural yet absolutely horrifying way. The scene that sticks out for me is when young Zeynep lies in bed awake, and slowly hears her father coming down the hall towards her room. It's a very minimalistic sequence, yet it's incredibly intense and unbearable. In the end, the film doesn't really give us much answers after her fate seemingly changes for the better. As Zeynep stands on the balcony completely naked, we don't truly know if this is rebirth for her, or if nothing has actually changed.
(ag) wrote: Not a good movie, but the scene where Boll (as himself) confirms to reporters that his films are indeed financed with Nazi gold (while wearing stereotypical lederhosen) is pretty hilarious are a more self deprecating bit of parody than any other filmmaker would dare to do. Of course this isn't worth watching the whole film for.

This film tries very very very hard to be a happy, crowd-pleasing film, and I think it's seams show. The effort being exerted is palpable. I don't think general audiences see this, so they LOVED this film, and there's a natural tendency to react to that with skepticism when you can see what the film is doing. I often react that way. In this case, I didn't. The film is like a happiness machine, and it generally works for me. I don't LOVE it, but I like it ... quite a bit actually.

Written ably, and performed well, even the very familiar love angle was driven enough by pragmatism to not annoy me. Of course this all changes by the end, and that reflects in my score. A few days have passed and the fondness of the viewing moment has left a slightly pale reflection. I'm off to powder my ass...don't stay too long in the well!

Along the way he picks up carrie who is a runaway bride of the sheriff's son and that's the main reason he is being chased. The car chase scenes and the car crashes are excellent especially for its time. Burt Reynolds was awesome but I think jackie gleason who played the sheriff stole the show. He was downright hilarious. Sally fields was good here too. It keeps you quite entertained through the whole movie. There is not one part of the movie where your jaw hasn't dropped from the chasing or wrecking and you also get a lot of good laughs. This movie is fast paced pure entertainment at it's finest.
