(ca) wrote: Bad Casting and Bad Acting! Can we let go and make a really entertaining movie? A triple play is extremely hard to due in a movie. The writing, acting and chemistry must be great to pull this feat off. A spiritual, comedy, drama! Never again, Never again.
(de) wrote: A pretty little piece about how tragedy/death/loss can really send us into a spin. The performance by the lead and the young girl are just gorgeous. Nicely shot and I particularly liked the way we get to hear the leads thoughts throughout the film. Well worth checking out.

(gb) wrote: This is truley an amazing fantasy/adventure movie. (even more so when you take into account when it was produced) To anyone whos ever fantasized of visiting "foreign lands." I highly recommend this flick.. I honestly think the 4 people who thought it was "rotten" must have been watching another movie...
(fr) wrote: A unique film in the history of cinema. Not only does Bergman answer the critiques with this transcendental psychoanalytic movie, but also showing that he has some tricks of his own. From the very first clip of the prologue it's obvious that the next 85 min has something powerful and complexed with a sublime message. Literally speaking this is also Liv Ullmann's breakthrough, spellbinding as it is, shes nearly mute, though speaking a thousand words with her mystique. As we see personalities are been destroyed and taken apart alongside wondering who is who and what is what. We are cought in the limbo of reality and dreams, in both terms of the supreme acting but also the great haunting images we see as the characters melt in to another.

(us) wrote: While there is nothing new to be offered on the familiar story of zombies, the freshness comes from the gore and action, and great characters. Specifically, Wray and Cherry. Rose McGowan is awesome in this movie, and the action sequences with a gun on her leg are just amazing. There is lots of gore to be had in this movie, some of it unnecessary...Tarantino's penis oozing off was one... but still very fun.

She's more than lived up to her potential in everything she's done since, from Dick, to Brokeback Mountain (which she was ROBBED of a statue), to Blue Valentine, to this..
(us) wrote: Unless your a follower of the TV show Once Upon a Time (which I'm not) then you'll probably have noticed the absence of actor Robert Carlyle from our film screens. The occasional low-key drama like California Solo in 2012 and Samantha Morton's hard-hitting The Unloved in 2009 have surfaced here and there but they didn't receive a wide release at all. In fact, I have yet to even see the former and Carlyle had a very small role in the latter (albeit a powerful one). You'd probably have to go as far back as 2007's 28 Weeks Later to mention a film that a mainstream audience might be more familiar with. Now, though, he's back. And back he comes to his hometown of Glasgow to make his directorial debut with a very Scottish-centric black comedy.Barney Thomson (Carlyle) is a socially awkward barber who fails to strike up any rapport with his customers. As a result, his boss Wullie (Stephen McCole) decides to let him go. Without his job, though, the only thing Barney has got in his life is his domineering mother Cemolina (Emma Thompson) and in aid to keep a hold of his job, Barney finds himself in the unlikely position of becoming a serial killer.Anyone who's followed my blog for a period of time may remember the glowing praise I have regularly afforded to Carlyle. I think he's a fantastic actor and one of Scotland's best. It's been saddening to see so little of him over recent years but a pleasure to see him return with an adaptation of the first book in writer Douglas Lindsay's Barbershop Seven series - The Long Midnight of Barney Thomson. It's a quintessentially Scottish story that requires someone with a knowledge of the city (and it's inhabitants) to adapt it for the screen and, on that note, Carlyle is the perfect man for the job. His ability to capture the Glasgow idiom is, as expected, on full display here and there are regular moments of hilarity. He also utilises the austere city locations to brilliant effect. The time in which it's set is not entirely clear (it could be set in the 70's or 80's) but Carlyle has a good eye for a bygone era and captures a particular style with crisp and observant detail.He's also managed to assemble an impressive cast who contribute characters that are as colourful as their language; Emma Thomson is a foul mouthed treat under her cheap leopard print coat, heavy make-up and an even heavier Glaswegian accent. Winstone does his usual cockney fing but it works well for the material and there's a quality supporting cast of Scottish actors from James Cosmo, Martin Compston, Stephen McCole and Ashley Jensen - who gives Winstone a run for his money in the three-testicle profanity stakes. As the titular character, Carlyle flits between drama and comedy with ease and displays and myriad of emotions along the way: despair, desperation and rage consume his character daily and his nervous disposition and social awkwardness doesn't help matters. As an actor, Carlyle's chops have never really been in question but the overhanging question surrounding this film is whether his direction is it up to scratch? Well, the answer to the that is a simple... yes. Yes it is. Carlyle shows some impressive and inventive directorial flourishes and you can see where directors he has worked with have had an influence on his approach. It's definitely a talent that I hope he chooses to explore more of - although he has already stated that he's in no rush to do so. The film is not without problems, though. They don't lie with the performances or the direction but, predominantly, with the narrative. At times, the pacing feels off and the least said about the final third of the film, the better. Suffice to say that it drastically falls apart with a misplaced, explosive denouement that looks like it's wandered in from another film. It's the type of material that the Coen brother's handle comfortably but in his first directorial outing Carlyle has enough panache and talent to make it work and make it enjoyably macabre and offbeat entertainment.It's always been apparent that Carlyle has a flair for drama but he proves to have a good eye and ear for comedy too. I wonder how well this would translate to others who are perhaps unfamiliar with Scottish humour but, over time, this has the potential to become quite the little cult movie.Mark Walker
