(ag) wrote: Strange and bleak - just the way I like it!
(gb) wrote: This film is pretty fantastic. It doesn't feel like an American movie. It touches on some pretty controversial topics, yet still manages to be light and humorous (although sometimes you wonder if it is wrong to laugh...) Funniest line: "You poop into my butt hole and I poop into your butt hole... back and forth... forever." Brandon Ratcliff is an absolute superstar. 8/10

(it) wrote: I'm a huge Clive Barker fan, both his books and films, and this film had me from the opening lines, "There are two World of magic. One is the glittering domain of the illusionist. the other is a secret place, where magic is a terrifying reality. Here, men have the power of demons. And Death itself is an illusion." I haven't read the novella this film is based upon,but the story here involved private detective and supernaturalist Scott Bakula investigating a missing magician and his ties to a dead cult leader. I love all three of Barker's films as a director; "Hellraiser," "Nightbreed" and this film, "Lords of Illusion," which is by far my favorite of the three. Not that the others aren't terrific in their own right, but this film inhabited a larger and richer universe than the others and I'm also a sucker for the film's noir elements. I also love that Bakula's character, Harry D'Amour, has a history that's not fully explained and seems shrouded in mystery. Even his previous case where a colleague glibly asks, "Was that kid really processed?" and D'Amour simply replied, "probably," though the exchange is intercut with terrifying scenes from the possession, with a horrible creature clutching a small child and reaching out for D'Amour. It's that sort of hints of a larger world of magic and the supernatural that make this film so rich. My only complaint about the film is that the finale seemed to be a bit of a letdown, coming down to a rather small scale battle of magic in an old cult compound. The build up to the battle is great, but the battle itself was kind of corny, mostly I think due to some surprisingly weak special effects that kind of took me out of the film, which is surprising since most of the special effects in the film were quite good. As it was written, the ending is fine, but the execution disappointed me. Despite that, it's a hell of a horror film. There's a great cast besides Bakula, including Kevin J. O'Connor, Famke Janssen in a very early role, Vincent Schiavelli, and Daniel von Bargen as the scary cult leader Nix. There's also a very good score by composer Simon Boswell. Overall, this is a terrific horror film and is a must see for fans of the genre.

(de) wrote: Romero's got a knack for combining several types of genres, usually into a fulfilling movie. Here, easily one of the most original films ever made, it's a hodgepodge that never quite gets off the ground. The action scenes are quite good. The stunts, and there are plenty, feel real and are expertly done. The acting from all is pretty solid, with Ed Harris leading the way and kicking all sorts of ass.There are several odd edits, that jar you out of what you have seen. Not bad, exactly, but there is no segue way from one scene to the next in these, and since several scenes last at least 5 minutes too long, you're never sure when the scenes will end.The music is very good. The script has some great bits, but a lot of it is pretty silly, which isn't a bad thing, but since the movie veers from romantic drama, small town comedy, corrupt law official, and several others, the silliness only seems greater because of it.
(nl) wrote: Underwhelming effort from director Arthur Penn (Bonnie and Clyde; Little Big Man) that comes off as a mishmash of bad 70s melodrama: infidelity; crime; guns; nudity, and endless self-absorbed exchanges between characters searching to find themselves - all combining for an ultimately unsatisfying end. Notable as the fist credited performance by Melanie Griffith (only 17, already naked) and an early work of James Woods. "Night Moves" saving grace is lead Gene Hackman, who does his best to rise above this by-the-numbers story and direction. A detective flick that never quite moves the viewer enough to inevitably care how it all ends.
(ca) wrote: Classic Italian neo-realism masterpiece. Vittorio De Sica pulls the hard strings of the viewer in this touching movie of a man's desire to live and eventually die respectably. Key performance by the dog
