The theory was that the more you suffer, the funnier you are, and modern-day American Jews have it too good to be too funny. I mostly just enjoyed the movie, because everyone made jokes like my Zadie.

(es) wrote: Alan Rickman and Madeleine Stowe...were beyond brilliant in this.I expected this to be terrible due to reading generally bad reviews, and I cannot describe how surprised I am.Alan's ability to change his voice and act like a madman was something I was truly not expecting. I also thought I would spend the majority of the time watching Alan, an actor I've seen before, than Stowe, but Stowe was herself an attention-holder. Their performances leave me truly nonplussed.I am truly speechless. I enjoy movies where there are only relatively few characters and heavy development with all of them. This and Phone Booth are on that list.I was wondering when the plot was going to tie itself together, to make sense, but when it finally did, it was as if all the pieces fell into place and my enjoyment was magnified twofold.Alan is magnificent at being malevolent and, quite plainly, scary. Stowe's facial expressions are wonderful in response.This film got me more worked up than most horror movies I've seen due to its sheer creepy feel and tight focus.From someone who was expecting this to be absolutely dreadful, here's a fistful of surprise.Alan, you truly know how to be terrifying. I cite this as the reason you so often get cast for villainy.7.7/10.

The background art is some of the most beautiful throwaway art I have seen in a long time. Using watercolors for bright scenes and charcoal or paint on Bristol board for the dark scenes help to lend an alternate feeling and texture to the viewing experience. That said Watership Down is much darker than I remember, and it manages to do in 101 minutes what it look Peter Jackson 558 in the Lord of the Rings. Sure, the story is much different, that's fine, but the overarching allegory is the same. From the opening scene through to the end my mind was linking the two together, which is where the similarity end. This film has my highest recommendation.

(it) wrote: "Willie Dynamite" is the story of a pimp and his girls, a blaxploitation film that isn't too campy and doesn't glorify the criminal lifestyle that Willie leads. He is a prick, who treats his prostitutes good only when it suits him, when they step out of line or do anything independent he becomes a shit, just like a real pimp. He is a bastard who portrays himself as working for and with the girls, but is really just out for himself. So the fact that they didn't stray too far into camp territory helped this one. It isn't the best film, not even the best blaxploitation film I've seen, but it is decent.

(ag) wrote: The last seduction must have been one of the best thrillers during the 1990's with one of the best female acts I've ever seen. Linda Fiorentino did a remarkable job as the femme fatale stealing her husband's drug money. It was all about lies, taking advantage of people and hidden secrets.Bill Pullman played an interesting character as the husband trying to track down his wife. But it was Peter Berg, who stood out in the movie as the young man falling in love with Fiorentino, and ofcourse Linda Fiorentino herself who steals this movie. Every scene with those two in entertained, both on a comedy and dramatic and the sex scenes were amazing, all thanks to the great directorial hand by John Dahl. Peter Berg had an interesting face accompanied by a terrific sense for acting, giving his character the extra sensitive touch the movie required. This is a movie that will stand the test of time, it started a bit slow in the begining but catched up very quickly.
(fr) wrote: An excellent way to relive an era is to bring it back. "Sing Street", as a step from childhood to adolescence, along with the new signs of maturity that it brings, consisting on trying new things, to challenge oneself and to be perseverant to reach goals, positions everything in an era of transitions like were the dreamers during the '80s, awakening our emotions as they gladly do and look for what we really crave.This successful John Carney's project is set in Northern Ireland, where Connor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo), the third child of a couple which has been agitated by their emotional problems and lashed by the hard crisis of the eighties in that country, is sent to a Christian school to save the family economy. The boy must face change, living with students with more difficult socio-economic conditions and an apparently strict but condescending and incapacitated education. After meeting a girl named Raphina (Lucy Boynton) who daily walks out of his school, Connor's isolated attitude shifts, pointing to the dream of creating his own band, challenging the school system, finding his skills, and facing new feelings.Cosmo, the name with which Raphina would baptize him as his stage name, now ventures into trying to demonstrate what he thinks through music, giving signs of how he feels about the girl, what he expects of himself, and to express everything that happens around him. In fact, from the first scene of the film he is already composing, he does it with pain and it is about the fights he hears at home. Knowing love is what motivates the protagonist to move forward. He is timid, constant, noble, and fearless. He can also be seen with a very nerdy attitude, and he is, but as part of his quest for identity is how we can see through him, feeling great empathy, and smiling inevitably to the so funny scenes that come frequently.Brendan, the brother of Cosmo (Jack Reynor) plays a very important role throughout history. He loves him and his relationship between siblings is very affectionate and close. He is key as support and guide in the construction of Cosmo as an artist, as a lover and as a person.Now, entering the subject of music, which supports this story, we have a good achievement by Carney not only by bringing back great themes and British successes of the eighties, but also really manages to create all this atmosphere with his good use of props, camera effects and even instruments.The tacky flavor air with which the film moves does not stagnate unlike many other films of the same type and the weakened optimism that is employed is offset by a great soundtrack, such as the '80s Brit band Danny Wilson ("Mary's Prayer"), the themes of The Cure and Duran Duran.Carney's intention fulfills the commitment to his audience. The subjects of family, friendship, the mission of always trying and not to surrender are approached with very good intentions resulting in a satisfactory work of filmmaking, agile and alive from beginning to end. Youth is to face problems, to do without wasting time in regrets, it is enjoying. The fantastic closing of the movie leaves a pleasant thought of what could happen next, implying that life is breathing, that life is full of melodies, and that to reach plenitude there must be no fear about the future. 83/100
