(nl) wrote: It's very easy to tell this was mas a made-for-tv movie. The fade-to-black shots leave the film feeling very disjointed (if watched without commercials). Low special effects budget will have you wincing when bullets bounce off the cars. Donnie puts in a good performance, but this shouldn't have been released as a DVD.
(nl) wrote: Refn does David Lynch, the way he did Kubrick in Bronson, and does it terribly, without an ounce of energy, wit, or purpose. One of the most pointless films I have ever seen. I know it's about pointlessness and the randomness of the universe or whatever, so that even when the case is cracked so to speak the truth is still ultimately inaccessible, but none of it is emotionally or intellectually stirring, and the sequences which are cinematic are Lynch knock-offs, that even Jennifer Lynch would feel embarrassed to watch. It's filler from first frame to last, and eraser of plot points, which don't illuminate or isolate anything, just frustrate and annoy. The film get's 1 star because once the audience discovers the identity of the killer and his motive the story flirts with suspense nicely, and even held the promise of redeeming itself. I'm not naive enough to expect closure in anything as self consciously "existential" as this film must be patting itself on the back for being, but that doesn't mean we have to be bored. The Cohen's "A Serious Man" says basically the same thing, but makes a nuanced, funny, charming, and even cathartic film out of it. This recalls "Memento", "Barton Fink", and a long list of Lynch films the way a mannequin recalls a human being. I still might see Refn next "viking saga" movie, but I have no more desire to see his early work. I have no confidence that it will be worth the time.

(ca) wrote: Zorba The Greek is a refreshing film, one that occupies your mind for brief period of time and gives you fantastic moments to cherish, whenever you remember this film. Anthony Quinn gives one of his great screen-performances. I simply love Zorba along with Zampano of La Strada (also starring Anthony Quinn); rest of the cast likewise have done superb work. Classic cinematography along with exquisite art-direction, purely handling and giving exquisite charm of the village, when it rains.

The themes of female independence against the burgeoning backdrop of modernizing Japan are once again done with devastating brilliance. Not to be overlooked: my burgeoning crush on Setsuko Hara.
(ca) wrote: Great cast is wasted in this pretensions remake of Kurosawa's brilliant "Rashomon". Nice black and white photography and Edward G. Robinson are the only reason to watch this mess (or to see William Shatner as a priest if that's your sort of thing).

(us) wrote: The album St. Anger isn't very good but it is interesting to see the band surrender to inner turmoil, personal demons, and so on and so forth. I think Jason Newsted's comments and reunion between Dave Mustaine and Lars Ulrich to be examples of what makes this really good.
