Shield of Straw torrent reviews

Sam M (au) wrote: The story is fairly predictable, but the directing and cinematography were superb. By the end of the movie you feel like you know the character, which makes up for the forgettable, cliche ending. (Side note: hey filmmakers, I love your movie, but don't have 19 year olds pretend to be 15. When you revealed her age in the last third my jaw dropped)

Elgan D (ru) wrote: The title, which translates to Distant in English is very apt for this drama in which on the surface very little happens but it profoundly captures Mahmut's largely self inflicted isolation. As ever Istabul is a wonderfully cinematic location and is photographed again beautifully here.

Emily D (us) wrote: I was hoping for so much more from this movie! Meg Ryan + France are two of my favorite things! But I didn't feel the chemistry between the leads and the whole movie just felt kind of blah. Why Ryan's character would chase after her bland cheating fiance is beyond me.

Mark S (br) wrote: My favourite film of all time, without question. Moving, heartbreaking, incredibly human and compassionate, a beautiful piece of filmmaking. I encourage people to read Roger Ebert's review (attached to this page) which beautifully encapsulates the film's depth and feeling. Both Hustons, in my opinion, provide their best work here, and that is saying something. The scene with Angelica Huston's Gretta on the staircase is one of the most haunting moments in film. If you like this then do read Joyce's Dubliners - the movie is adapted from the last story in this collection.

Ricardo O (ag) wrote: This is a pure visual treat. Once again Federico Fellini makes a commentary on the decadence of 1960s Rome (much like his earlier La Dolce Vita) by loosely adapting a classic piece of literature from Ancient Rome where all kinds of perversions are normal. There has been many pages that have been lost in the book which makes it a very fractured piece of literature and Fellini duplicates it, even going so far to make it almost more confusing. Still, as confusing as it does get, mostly in the first half, Fellini creates such trippy and mesmerizing visuals that one can't help but be intrigued by all that is going on on-screen. It's certainly one of the trippiest films you will ever watch about Ancient Rome. This film is better suited for those that are well acquainted with Fellini's earlier films and I would not recommend anyone to watch this as his or hers first Fellini to watch. But for those that have watched plenty of his movies, I do recommend it, even if it doesn't quite compare to his earlier films or even his last great film Amarcord. Even if the story, etc. isn't as good as one would hope, one must applaud for the high production values. The set design is extraordinary. 8/10

Ashley H (fr) wrote: Date Night is a disappointing movie. It is about a case of mistaken identity that turns a bored married couple's attempt at a glamorous and romantic evening into something more thrilling and dangerous. Steve Carell and Tina Fey give horrible performances. Th script is badly written. Shawn Levy did a terrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture.
