Seisaku's Wife torrent reviews

George S (it) wrote: its actually a pretty good slasher flick with a few twist to make you wonder the whole movie.

Kiiristiano K (es) wrote: good movie, definitely worth the watch..

Martin S (de) wrote: Tres bien! J'ai bien aime! Excellentes performances de Oldman et Molina!

Suvi L (jp) wrote: Took the plunge and ended up liking this. I can't explain it but it was the whole mood that attracted me to it. Maybe I should check out more Besson films...

Adrian B (kr) wrote: Most films that I have seen lately dealing with racism have been fairly pretentious and quite annoying. Thankfully, this one stands out. Documentary like, "Killer of Sheep" is an observation on African-Americans living in the slums of Los Angeles. One man (Henry J. Sanders) works at a slaughterhouse to support his family that struggles to maintain themselves in society. The wife (Kaycee Moore) is so desperate to look good, that it affects the relationship between the husband and herself along with their kids. Uniquely filmed in black-and-white, what I believe the director, Charles Burnett, successfully does is making the characters look as poor as one can imagine. Colour would not leave as gritty an impact if this film were be enveloped in that type of photography. Definitely, the script captures the characters types of dialogue, even if the "n" word is often used. One flaw with the film: the score interferes with the sound and it is hard to hear what the characters are saying at times. However, really interesting movie!

Dave J (it) wrote: Obviously, inspired by movies starting with "The Gunfighter" and "The Fastest Man Alive" in which a respectful gunfighter seeking out best gunfighter. Abrubt ending.

Matthew J (jp) wrote: The movie cover is from the 1981 version of Body And Soul .. NOT the one with Ray Boom Boom
