Sarah D (kr) wrote: Watched this to try to better understand Bannon's motives. The main theme of the film is the idea of 20-year cycles, with a war every 4th cycle: predicts an upcoming war, which the filmmakers seem excited about as a fertile ground to rebuild the world. Lots of statements and opinions, but nothing to back them up. Any interviews with experts are short, out-of-context sound bites. In an interview, one "expert" actually asked "why didn't the dot com bubble happen in 1985 instead of 1995?" [for those too young to remember, the world wide web started in 1990, so dot com wasn't a thing in '85]. At one point, an interviewee seemed to be reading a statement from cue cards.Focuses on Wall Street corruption and political collusion, but fails to zero in on names, blames the regulatory institutions instead. Implies that morals fell away with hippie generations of the 1960s and after, and that this somehow became the abdication of responsibility that causes financial corruption, but never makes the link clear. The film advocates for a return to protestant work ethic & less conspicuous consumption. Attempts to say both individualism and community volunteerism are the solution.

Brandon W (es) wrote: Well that was awful. Little Nicky is one of the lowest comedy films from Adam Sandler. The cast are awful, except some that tried their best. The jokes, ugh, are terrible that are just either disgusting, racist, and just really dumb, and it's not the good kind either. Even the effects are disgustingly awful, and the make-up looks really cheesy. The movie kept making it like a commercial for Popeye's chicken, and Adam Sandler's face and voice just annoys the heck out of me and I just didn't get why that face he's making would make us laugh. There's only a few moments that made me chuckle, and the Ozzy Osbourne cameo is the best part of the movie. Those moments are not even close to make Little Nicky good because it is an awful movie that I kept groaning a lot and I never want to watch this movie ever again.

Michael S (es) wrote: In a suffocatingly desolate setting we will witness a series of inexplicable, uncomfortable and unsettling confrontations, played out in the psyche, first and foremost, and then reflected in the 'tangible' world. One woman, Millie, wading through her lonely middle aged life, welcomes Pinky into that life, a mildly threatening yet utterly childlike, even alien, presence. Pinky latches onto Millie's superficial world as if its the very first glimpse of human life she's ever gotten a clear view of. And the two of them in turn wade through the world of another, older woman, pregnant and painting in the desert. Altman has fashioned a film of sensations. To watch it is to decipher its barrage of minute detail about the world it illustrates, to walk away from it is to feel things about what you've seen that throw it into some kind of light. Its always a kind of game being played between you and it. And its also a film of subjective interpretation. I'm always left with an image of a Russian nesting doll, these females absorbing one another in a barren edge of the world. Willie is a silent yet stoic, almost witchy figure who is literally illustrating her own world with metaphors for what will occur, who knows more than the other two and is simply waiting and creating on the sidelines of the film. Millie is caught in between, striving and trying to give herself a meaning in a world that is constantly ejecting her, bouncing her back and forth between the bar and the apartment complex, both owned by Willie and marked by her stark, confrontational depictions of the truths of Millie's world, ones she doesn't allow herself to see yet, lest they be too painful. And then there's the insidious invasion of Pinky, the stone tossed into the pond to make it ripple. She is rebellion and naivete. And she sets the ball rolling for the mysterious events that will lead these three women to their final formation. This is a hugely important American film, and one of its most improbable.
