(gb) wrote: A Cassavetes film is different, it plays by different rules, to its own tune. Sometimes that tune is off-key or the jams go on too long, but it can also soar. Faces is about middle aged people and their (over)reactions to a stale relationship -- they seek out other, younger, partners. See what happens as the older generation encounters the Swingin' 60s (ignoring the datedness of everything). Things get pretty intense.
(de) wrote: Certainly very dramatic, but it is also extremely entertaining. I cannot help but imagine what the men who just came back from the War would have felt about Mildred's character in the film. The portrayal of Mildred is also entertaining, much like the woman who were thrusted into work in the 40's, Joan Crawford's character is also thrown into the world of business. The theme of gender reversal in the movie is apparent, so is the symbolic representation of each character, all of which are well represented. Veda is perhaps the most snobbish character anyone can ever find. Despite all the social issues Mildred Pierce tries to address, it is all embodied within a well constructed and enthralling story.

(gb) wrote: This film has an excellent ensemble cast including Sean Connery, Angelina Jolie, Gillian Anderson, and many more. It is a wonderful character study, set in Los Angeles, and surrounded by an upcoming anniversary party. I highly recommend this film.
(gb) wrote: Ah, the cynical 1970s. The United States had lost the war in Vietnam and the American president resigned due to a two-bit burglary carried out by his aides at the Watergate hotel. This film is a byproduct of that period. A faked Mars landing is carried out. Due to a problem with the life support systems (due to the contractor cutting costs to maximize profits) the astronauts would die in space if they were sent out but the President is looking to trim the fat from his budget and if Mission Control scrubs the manned Mars flight, NASA may loose its funding. So the whole thing is faked and our three heroes (James Brolin, O.J. Simpson, and Sam Waterson) are convinced to go along with the ploy when their families are threatened. But when the remote-control module returns from Mars, it disintegrates in the atmosphere and Hal Holbrook and his shadowy masters do not want to explain to the President and Congress why the three heroic astronauts are still alive so they have to die. The three men escape into the desert chased by unmarked helicopter gunships. It hard to watch O.J. in a heroic role but the rest of the cast is pretty good. Elliot Gould plays a heroic reporter (Woodward and Bernstein were still heroes and Fox News hadn't reared its ugly head) who uncovers the truth, Brenda Vaccaro play's Brolin's character's wife, and look for Karen Black and Telly Savalas in bit roles. The film looks good, is exciting, and is well photographed. Unfortunately it fed conspiracy theorists who believe that we never landed anyone on the moon and encouraged writers to write books documenting the "moon-landing hoax." I guess if they hadn't written about that, they would have written books about the Bermuda Triangle. Ah, the cynical 1970s.
