Stuart K (kr) wrote: Written and directed by Mike Mills (Paperboys (2001) and Thumbsucker (2005)), this romantic comedy drama was inspired by events from Mills' own life, when his own father came out as homosexual at the age of 75. It's an original idea for a film, and it does touch upon a plight most men faced in the old days, but kept it secret. As well as how family members might react when the bombshell is dropped. Told in a series of flashback, illustrator Oliver Fields (Ewan McGregor) remembers his recently departed father Hal (Christopher Plummer), who succumbed to cancer. After Hal's wife and Oliver's mother died, Hal comes out as gay, which is a big shock to his son, but Oliver comes to accept it. He never had much of a relationship with his father, rather spending more time with his free-spirited mother Georgia (Mary Page Keller). Shortly after his father's passing, Oliver meets French actress Anna (Mlanie Laurent), and pursues romance with Anna, using his father's postive open philosophy in life to keep the romance fresh. On the surface, something like this could have come across as mawkish and sentimental. But it has a quirky charm and a gentle sense of humour, and it manages to be bubbly and optomistic, even if death is a theme hanging over the film. But, it manages to be compelling and it's got something to say about modern relationships.

Stuart K (nl) wrote: From music video director Demian Lichtenstein (Lowball (1996) and Venus & Vegas (2010). This crime caper has an original idea, and it was pitched somewhere between Ocean's Eleven (1960) and True Romance (1993). It had a great cast, but it's all wasted on cliched action set-ups and it didn't help that neither the director nor the stars could get the tone right, and the film was recut by the producers. It begins when Michael (Kurt Russell) has just come out of jail, and he meets single mother Cybil (Courteney Cox) at a motel, and he sleeps with her. But, Michael is part of a crime gang, along with Murphy (Kevin Costner), Hanson (Christian Slater), Gus (David Arquette) and Franklin (Bokeem Woodbine). They all plan to go to an Elvis convention in Las Vegas, and rob the casino that's holding it and use their disguises as the cover. The heist is pulled off, although there was a very violent shootout at the casino. However, Murphy double crosses the others, and tries to kill them, leaving Michael on the run, with Cybil in tow and a share of $100,000 as well. It should have been a good film, and you'd expect good things from a cast like that, (Russell actually played Elvis), but stuff like this has all been seen before, and you don't know if it's meant to be a black comedy or a violent action film with third rate witty dialogue, the mixture is jarring, which is a shame considering the plot.

A great parody of American politics. I've been a fan of Levinson's work since the 90's with his critically-acclaimed "Homicide: Life On The Street" and films like "Bugsy", "Sphere", "Good Morning Vietnam," etc. There's a great dynamic interplay between Hoffman and DeNiro.

Quinto W (ag) wrote: The first half of the movie is surprisingly solid for a Troma film, but after that it stops dead in its tracks looking for something to do and somewhere to go, which it never finds. The completely ridiculous "twist" ending was awesome, though.
