(ca) wrote: great cast, incredible acting by Streep, but really depressing and long story.
(gb) wrote: Documentary accurately concentrates on the events surrounding the Polanski rape trial.
(mx) wrote: Some scary sexual stereotypes softly challenged, but without turning into a female version of the Dead Poets' Society. Julia Roberts's teacher could actually teach, in comparison with Williams's inspirational entertainer.
(br) wrote: No thankyou - Not interested
(ag) wrote: It is good. I like him.
(ag) wrote: Opening Night is a beautiful film. It is pure John Cassavetes style. Gena Rowland gives a stunning performance of a declining actress, dealing with success, aging, loneliness and alcoholism. The script is amazing and creative. I enjoyed this film because it kept me interested.
(de) wrote: This is a drama with a lot of action too. It is a great story about selfless love and benevolence by an unlikely person. Will Penny is poor, illiterate, and relatively old. Yet, he chooses not take and instead he gives time and again. A harsh but amazing story.
(ag) wrote: No doubt that the creative ottoman Elia Kazan was a genious:) Intriguing combination Elia-Marlon Brando is the ideal one from my perspective. (look at "On The Waterfront" or "A Streetcar Named Desire") Even though, I have to admit John Steinbeck had also a major contribution;) Interesting is that Emiliano Zapata's character is fabulously constructed by the magical duo and distructed with help of Anthony Quinn who's playing the brother role in this bio.
(ru) wrote: This movie is an outrage because it is the cheap American remake of a fine film. Seeing it on its own make it an odd little movie. Seeing it in contrast with Rashomon makes it seem like the high school production of a Shakespearean play. The acting is mediocre in comparison, and the backdrops are so bad I almost feared the actors might back up too much and fall into them. In trying to recast the story for an American audience, the omissions and changes resulted in the loss of all the power and integrity behind Rashomon.
(nl) wrote: Not one of my favorites of CG's. Seems to almost be missing a chunck in the middle of the movie.
(it) wrote: You can never go home again. Terrific movie with probably the BEST monologue ever delivered by Rosie O'Donnell. What every woman has wanted to say to every man.
(ca) wrote: Jewish wiseguy junkie Mickey Rourke clashes with an eyepatch-wearing Tupac in this incomprehensible mess of a film. Also, Buffalo Bill shows up to teach kids how to cut people's throats. Atrocious
(mx) wrote: Films like this and Paths of Glory continue to quietly outshine modern war epics, for the boundaries they work within force them to create poignancy and terror on different and deeper levels than shocking violence or schlocky speeches.
(nl) wrote: Geez, this movie was bad. A terrible, overused premise, and awful acting. The animals are not funny with their stupid stereotypes.
(fr) wrote: This was my second time watching Martyrs. The first time around I wasn't particularly moved, however with the remake having recently surfaced I figured it was worth revisiting the original. Martyrs is brutal but the violence isn't cartoonish as it is in films like Human Centipede and A Serbian Film. It is grounded in a very real setting, ultimately making this a gruelling experience but one with sufficient depth make it stay in the mind after the credits have rolled. For the right reasons too. It is a revenge story told primarily from the perspective of a survivor of severe childhood trauma, however the tone flips about midway through and takes some surprising turns. It all culminates with one of the most memorable final acts in modern horror.

From prison quality, to school lunches, to vacation time, to laws, & even women's rights, it is an eye opener that doesn't give simple answers, but shows the challenges each change can bring.
