Jacob G (ca) wrote: 'The Keeper of Lost Causes' comes at a time where Scandinavian crime cinema and television has become a very popular genre, with the likes of 'The Killing' and 'The Millennium Trilogy' becoming incredibly successful with foreign audiences, leading to numerous Hollywood remakes and critical acclaim. However the film struggles in living up to it's predecessors in the genre. Based on the Jussi Adler-Olsen novel 'Kvinden i buret' 'The Keeper of Lost Causes' tells the story of two detectives as they revisit a five year old, abandoned case involving a missing woman. This is an engaging thriller due to the film's sense of mystery and it is difficult for one to lose interest in the story due to the fine performances from lead actors Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Fares Fares. However, it suffers from using clichs we've seen in crime thrillers for years. For instance it's no surprise that our lead character is a glum, divorced rogue detective with a heavy drinking problem, all of which are character traits that have been used from 'The Wire' to 'Luther' to name a few. It is therefore disappointing that the film makers didn't take the opportunity to adapt the source material to make the secondary (and much more interesting) character Assad into the focal detective. Assad, a Muslim, had the opportunity of being a much more well developed and unconventional lead protagonist, which may have improved an average, run of the mill thriller into a memorable and original one. However, the character's faith and personality is rarely explored, instead making room to communicate a traditional 'Odd couple' relationship between the two leads. It is because of this that 'The Keeper of Lost Causes' fails to stand out amongst the Scandinavian Noir films of recent years. Director Mikkel Norgaard takes a traditional, overused story structure to make a thriller that wouldn't be out of place in Sunday night's television listings. But unlike the film, television drama is breaking conventions.

Steve S (nl) wrote: a pretty decent asian action film with a good cast and interesting plot. i felt it was a bit over emotional in parts which kind of took me out of the story, but when everything is revealed in the last ten minutes of the film it really redeems it as a well put together movie. nicholas tse is excellent and really stands out in this one. for fans of asian cinema, this is a definite hit.

Matthew S (us) wrote: Robert Lee King's adaptation of Charles Busch's gender-bending spoof is clearly committed to the spirit of the largely underground play. It has some charm and offers fun. The cast goes for broke and Charles Busch is always an amusing performer. But there is something missing that prevents it from being memorable.
Attila H (us) wrote: Hilarious dialogues and weak storyline degrade the concept, only the gory scenes and the tiptop cinematography brings the show. Unfortunately that's not enough to live up the original Exorcist.
John A (mx) wrote: One of the Dardennes' peaks, for sure. Rosetta is a fully realized character, and the Dardennes infuse her with such energy through both the writing and the closely following camera, not to mention the fine performance from Duquenne. The desire for normalcy through work and a proper home is a universal one. The Dardennes understate Rosetta's motivations (and everyone else's), leaving people's actions mysterious. The surprising encounters that result are alternately heartbreaking and joyful.
Joey M (gb) wrote: Johns has a lot of potential that remains untapped. The biggest problem is that the audience is prefaced the ending in the first thirty seconds, and the characters do a lousy job at providing layers to the narrative. In terms of development, all of the characters are fairly shallow, especially David Arquette's character, who essentially has zero backstory. Although, the movie is saved with some decent camera work, a solid soundtrack, and ridiculously high key/low contrast lighting that jars the audience and creates an eerie dichotomy with the dramatic undertone of the world of prostitution.

Mike V (es) wrote: This epic semi-biographical Russian film is interesting in both a visual and historical sense. It contains some very artistic scenes, and depicts a strong comparison between man and nature, religion and secularism, right and wrong. I viewed the 186 min version. Considered one of the greatest films of all time. 1001
Petros T (kr) wrote: The script and performances are far from flawless but "Little Caesar" remains a pretty enthralling piece of early noir. It definitely has the traits of the archetypal gangster film: the action, the shoot-outs, the rise and the fall, the allegory on power and ambition. Even though we've seen better films of this kind since, "Little Caesar" still is a pleasant watch, 85 years on, despite its weaknesses.

Ryan H (ca) wrote: Another film that comes out early in the year that's yet another disappointment. A cliched love story. But c'mon we saw this one coming. The cast I guess was fine, but the whole film seems like it's just checking off things on the checklist. 30/100
