Saadia is a wild, strange Arab girl whose life has been dominated by a local sorceress, a vengeful outcast in the community, who has convinced her she has the "evil eye" and brings disaster to all who love her. French doctor Henrik takes her to his clinic, for rehabilitation purposes, and falls in love with her as does his friend, Si Lahssen, the reigning prince of this small Moroccan state. When a plague falls on the town, Saadia is convinced she is responsible, and rides alone into the mountain country to retrieve the plague serum being held for ransom by bandits. The love triangle dominates most of the rest of the film.

(fr) wrote: Although it's a risk putting different stories together in just one film, how it was compiled turned out to be conceivable, maybe even brilliant but its showcased segments were nearly-forgettable and clearly begging for improvement.
(nl) wrote: A light, enjoyable comedy that, despite some funny moments, can't resist turning into a corny melodrama in its third act - and even if Samdereli has her heart in the right place, she ruins the end with a lot of cheesy talking and an embarrassing slow motion that clearly begs for our tears.
(us) wrote: As an avid Second Life player, I was thrilled to see that a documentary was being released into the spotlight about this amazingly addicting life simulator. I thought it would show people just how great the game is, and how in depth the exploration and money market is... boy was I wrong. This film shows the other side of Second Life, the side that will consume your life in the worst possible way. That isn't to say that this film is bad in any way... It's actually quite amazing, it just isn't what I was expecting. If you've never seen anything of Second Life, this isn't the place to start. It will definitely give you a poor impression of what to me is one of the best games of all time.

Great jokes throughout. Only problem I have is that the whole mafia deal doesn't make sense. It seems every movie taking place in NYC has to involve the mafia. However Ray Liotta does great as always. Jokes may run flat after watching it more than 3 times at the least. Still an overall fun time.

(mx) wrote: The power that drives the first two-thirds of "Freedomland" is something author Stephen King describes as "the gotta." Screenwriter Richard Price sets a fascinating plot in motion and you just gotta keep watching because you just gotta find out what happens next and you just gotta know how it ends.The mystery is absorbing, but unfortunately, the big reveal is botched and a lot less dramatic than it should be. The film is based in part on the real-life case of Susan Smith, and the writing is quite good as it not only focuses on the crime drama aspect but also deals directly with the racial tension caused by these accusations. Price has written some fine films over the years, and I would include this among them despite the reservations I had with the film's final act.Julianne Moore is at the center of the mystery, and her performance is the centerpiece of the film, at times heart-wrenching even when you know her motives cannot be trusted. It's a credit to the actor when you empathize with her character without really trusting her. Also good in a supporting performance is Edie Falco, head of a parent's group helping to locate Moore's missing boy. She is superb in the film's single best scene in which her conversation with Moore about her missing child subtly turns into a subversive attempt at getting a confession. "Freedomland" is a smart film that falters in the third act. There are some stunning performances and a terrific script, but the resolution doesn't feel as satisfying as it should.

Actually starts pretty cool as you will be into the story for the out most yet through the second half it just reminded me of some episodes from any sci-fi tv shows. Not bad for the whole cast still a watchable B-grade reminds you of a late night film from the 80's. 2.5 out of 5.

(ru) wrote: My first James Dean film, I expected him to be cooler and bit more grown-up. This starts out quite well but really drifts off near the end. I don't know why it is on the lists of best film ever, it clearly isn't. I suppose it may be James Dean's best film and that makes it enough to call it a classic for many. Another overhyped non-classic.
