(us) wrote: Theres enough amazingly choreographed action here to make this Tsui effort watchable, but its disjointed, and has far too many subplots that are badly explained for it to be a real classic. Still, it feels like an anime, a bit like 'Ninja Scroll' in live-action, with the stylised bad-guys, excellent colouring, and as always sumptuous cinematography you come to expect from certain Eastern movie-makers. As a whole, I found it confusing and hard to follow, but well worth a watch, just dont expect too much.
(mx) wrote: A great and very interesting documentary about the news reportage during the early part of the war in Iraq. I particularly liked its calm, non-sensantional tone. Eye-opening.
(ag) wrote: A true classic, even as I now realize in the shorter version. I look forward to viewing the original.
(fr) wrote: I Am Cuba is a propaganda film from 1964, a joint production between the Soviet Union and Cuba. For the first 30 years of its existence, it was never seen outside of Cuba and the Soviet Union, and then only seen in eight theaters in the USSR. It was unearthed in 1990, after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, and was resurrected by film archivists, with the enthusiastic support of Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola.Life wasn't easy for an artist in the Soviet era. Director Mikhail Kalatozov, one of the USSR's finest filmmakers, was dispatched to Cuba to make this film. It bears many extraordinary shots borne from brilliant technical innovations. This film must set a record for long-take single shots. It was rejected by Cubans at the time because they felt they had been stereotyped, and rejected by the Soviets for being too artsy. Art for art's sake was a loathed concept in the Soviet Union. Art was for instruction. They felt that Kalatozov excessively indulged his art at the expense of the propaganda. This is what happens when bureaucrats are the final arbiters of art. Kalatozov was entirely on board with the message. Those schmucks didn't like how he told it, and so the movie was shelved. Yet another example of the essential flaws of the Soviet experiment.However, when Cubans complain because of how the Soviets depicted them, one must take such an argument seriously, and underscores yet another problem with the Soviet Union's de facto imperialism. Why not let the Cubans tell their own story? Why their insistence that they know better than the Cubans themselves?From an American capitalist's perspective, one must grapple with the intended message of the movie and, if at odds with one's politics, how one reconciles that with its technical genius. Surely if we can stomach Leni Riefenstahl's abhorrent subject matter to marvel at her artistry, we can also deal with this. And if you can't deal with the politics of this movie, but still love racist crap like Gone with the Wind, well, you've told me as much about your politics as I need to hear.And as for that message itself, after almost 60 years, while never a bed of roses, the life of a Cuban peasant under Batista was undoubtedly worse than it was under Fidel. I have long believed that any system can work - even monarchy - if all people are of good faith. The best system tends to be the one that works best in view of the fact that all people are not of good faith. As an intellectual proposition, I believe capitalism has greater potential than communism, but that is subject to fair debate. As a practical issue, most people will choose the system by which they flourish more. We never choose these things with philosophy, but with self-interest.

(fr) wrote: Looks like it was shot on video with part time actors likely from the local amateur dramatics society. However it is gory, Kurt Angle is OK, but the highlight is Kevin Nash and his scary make-up. Will someone give this guy a serious horror movie to sink his teeth or axe into. Oh yeah one more thing, it is just me or does this seriously 'borrow' from The Fog?
(es) wrote: A hugely entertaining roller coaster of a movie that perfectly combines 2D animation with 3D background, dazzling us with exhilarating scenes of Tarzan surfing through the jungle trees and a classic story that offers a very nice message about acceptance and self-identity.
