Stockholm, My Love
Stockholm My Love is a city symphony, a love letter to Stockholm, the fiction debut of director Mark Cousins and the acting debut of musician Neneh Cherry. It follows one woman's footsteps through the streets of her native city, on a journey of recovery from a bad thing that happened to her exactly one year before. It's an exploration of grief, identity and the power of architecture and urbanism to shape lives, and a celebration of the power of walking and looking to make us all feel just a little bit better. With new music by Neneh Cherry, old music by Benny Andersson (of ABBA) and Franz Berwald, and images by Christopher Doyle and Mark Cousins.

(kr) wrote: Interesting documentary and I definitely did not know all of the details in it, but based off of the title and how many hours of the interview they apparently had with McVeigh, I was expecting way more of this to actually be him talking; in fact I thought the entire thing was an interview with the terrorist himself. That was certainly not the case as there was only like ten minutes of that. Those ten minutes, though, were the most fascinating part of the movie to me.
(gb) wrote: War film a bit short in people. It has a very realistic and unrehearsed tone that is best during the shooting sequences. We feel right there with the bullets flying around. Otherwise, it feels like a tv movie at times. The music is annoying and distracting as if the drama was not obvious enough. The insane things done at war do not amount to much heroism though, when you think about it.
(fr) wrote: Minka Kelly is off to college and she has a mentally deranged roommate who stalks her and is obsessed with her and tries to protect Kelly in the wrong ways. This movie just isn't that interesting. Instead of having a creepy atmosphere to it, it is just bland. Even the characters are pretty boring. Even the stalking/mental issues are pretty down to earth, instead of full blown psycho to at least make the plot decent. Overall, a pretty bad film.
(gb) wrote: Tenure isn't a great movie, but it has heart. Witness how the bearded David Kochner (the Office's obnoxious Todd Packard) is almost unrecognizable as the (relatively) mellowed anthropology teacher genuinely convinced of the existence of bigfoot. Koechner's obsession may seem like a liability in a film set in reality, but it turns into an effective running joke. When two of Kochner's graduate students find a fresh yeti footprint but are unable to take a proper cast before it is destroyed by rainfall, he warns them that West-Coast skeptics will claim it was a hoax. He then effectively mentors them through their comedically perfect outrage and grief.Likewise, Luke Wilson as (assistant) professor Charlie Thurber quickly abandons his sinister plan to dis-credit his new competition in the Clark College literature department, and instead help her adjust and get comfortable in the classroom--even as a well-meaning Koechner sabotages her in torturously small ways. The film borders on the dramedy with scenes of Charlie's father, a former Princeton professor (with tenure!), now a widower struggling with alternating mental sharpness and senility. Bob Gunton is good even as his character seems to lack a moral center, sometimes prodding his son for his underachievement, but then moving quickly toward an inevitable but less cathartic than might have been reconciliation as he assures Luke that his teaching ability sets him apart.The movie works because the characters never go to cheap lengths to make us laugh, or end up caught up in elaborate lies that spiral out of control and require unrewarding scenes of strife as they attempt to get back on track. They work because the characters give each other the benefit of the doubt and don't spend much time shouting or acting in ways that disqualify them for friendship in the first place.So I'd say it is worth a chance.

(us) wrote: This is a humorous and intriguing film exploring the world of art, success and fame. Starring Max Minghella (The Social Network, 2010) as Jerome who is struggling with how to become a successful artist and win the girl of his dreams Audrey (Sophia Miles, Underworld, 2003). He gives a good performance alongside a great cast, which includes John Malkovich (Being John Malkovich) who also produced the film, in the role of the eccentric and egocentric possibly gay art tutor. This film may seem predictable, but that is the genius, it beautifully plays with all the art school and college student stereotypes with hilarious and authentic effect. Overall I found this a surprisingly funny and familiar film.

(us) wrote: An intense & powerful drama about an aspiring actress who finds s stray white dog that is not just a term for its colour but a term for a Dog trained to maul & kill black people by a white extremist owner.A seasoned black trainer decides to rehabilitate the dog despite its vicious nature & obsession to attack any black in sight.A very thought provoking film where the dog is the lead actors & the other actors support its story, a terrific drama from master director Samuel Fuller.
(ru) wrote: This film now seems quite dated but has interesting moments. Takes the American buddy movie and opens it up to include lots of sex and depravity and a cracking score by Stefane Grapelli. Good acting.
(jp) wrote: A strange film about a man who imprisons his wife and 3 children in a house to protect them from the outside world. He forces them to live a life of purity free of the poisons of society (liquor, meat, intimacy, etc.) They spend their time creating rat poison and producing it. The patriarch leaves the "castle" daily to sell his poison. He also seems to favor pork tacos and prostitutes his daughters age. A tale of high morality and morality gone wrong.
(es) wrote: "Blood Brothers" is a throwback to the type of films that made John Woo famous, which is fitting because it was inspired by Woo's "Bullet in the Head." Woo even liked it well enough to produce.The story is one you've heard before. A group of naive young men move from the countryside to the big city with big dreams, only to get tangled up with organized crime. This naturally strains their relationships and breaks them apart. One of them falls in love. People die. We keep seeing this kind of story because, let's face it, we like it a lot. Since I could not help comparing it to old John Woo movies, I docked half a star for lacking the good old John Woo style ultra-violence. Also the only English subtitles were for the hearing impaired. It got really annoying to keep having background noises and scene music described to me, which doesn't even make sense since there are only two types of people with hearing problems. The first is someone who has been deaf all his life and wouldn't know what [lively jazz music] sounds like anyway. The second is someone who has gone deaf to to injury or age and would, I suppose, have some concept of the noises being described, but this strikes me as just plain insensitive since all it really does is remind the poor bastard that he used to be able to hear and is now reduced to text descriptions of thunder and the buzz of conversation.
(kr) wrote: Interesting flick brought to us by Wilder. I thought it was funny how Jack Lemmon played the ignorant American. I expected the performance to be a ditsy guy who doesn't know his way around, but instead he was just a jerk taking everything the way he expected. The bad thing is, when things he expected turned out unexpectedly, he doesn't know how to handle the situation any way else other than with anger. The most intriguing part of the film is that there is a lot of morality issues with each character. The side ones seem to get punished, but our main characters are rewarded in the end. Perhaps it was Wilder exploring how far he can take a film while still entertaining the audience? Not quite as good as The Apartment, but I'd give it a 4/5. (In case if anyone is wondering, for some reason I can't see the stars in my rating section, so I can't rate them on flixster)
(es) wrote: Another one of those films based largely in one confined setting, with a number of seemly disillusioned strangers wondering who each other are, and how on earth they all got there. It was a clever idea to then uncover that the whole scenario as a result of a big money kidnapping whereby the Individuals trapped were either the assassins or the hostages, but thanks to the side effects of some chemical explosion during a scuffle, their identities are kept a secret from both themselves and us until we gradually begin to discover them throughout the course of the film. As the gangsters and police close in on the building, none of the survivors know quite how they will be treated upon their arrival until gradually the amnesia begins to wear off and flashbacks of memories begin to trigger in their brains. It is somewhat a slight anticlimax though as not enough twists and turns were made of the identities in the run up to the climax, and then when we finally got to the token final twist, it all became too much too late, and resulted in what I perceived as a confusing and distinctly average ending. Thinking back upon it, there wasn't a great deal of action throughout and the intensity was just a bit lacklustre. Like the cast of this film, I too am likely to be suffering from amnesia soon, as this film is not likely to be remembered as one to watch.
