(br) wrote: Despite the sometimes overwhelming amount of nudity, Sex and Lucia turns outs to be a surprisingly surreal and poignant film. It's almost a melodrama, but the film's cerebral attitude and emotional complexity keep it from becoming alienating. The film shows us the relationship between waitress Lucia and her writer boyfriend, who fall in love while his writing begins to merge into his life, with tragic consequences. Afterwards Lucia retreats to an island that her boyfriend wrote about, where she meets other characters taking emotional refuge in this island paradise. The plot is actually so complex that it's difficult to summarize it completely. It's the surrealness and complexity that prevents Sex and Lucia from seeming like a soap opera. This island, where all the characters meet up, I interpreted as a metaphysical green world where fantasy and reality merge into one. This is an interpretation open to debate but I think this furthered the depth of the film. Sex and Lucia attempts portray issues of love and sex, fantasy and reality, not always perfectly, but with often with real power. The film is unfortunately sometimes too vague and weird for it's own good which often lessens it's message. And while I have absolutely no moral objections to sex and nudity in film, I do have to acknowledge that Sex and Lucia has way to many sex scenes. This is to the extent that the film occasionally confuses sex and actual romance, both of which I like, but are still two very different things. Fortunately one of the film's biggest strengths is the outstanding performances by it's leads, paticuarly Paz Vega. They are all able to work through the more alienating parts of the film and keep us engaged in what's going on screen. Sex and Lucia is a very flawed masterpiece that, while not for everyone is always absorbing and never less than beautiful.

(mx) wrote: Susan Sarandan is one terrific actress, and she does an awesome job in this film. A young Nick Stahl also stands out. He is not very recognized as an actor, but I think will make it big. Good story, score and direction.
(nl) wrote: I just saw "Hoffa" for the first time. This movie is cinematic crap (actually, cinematic is too much a nice word to attach it in any way to this film). Nicholson's over-dramatic acting is not convincing nor genuine; it's more like cardboard, Hallmark self-conscious sentimemtality. He knew he was doing his possible worst movie ever. The music is muzak's nightmare, shallow and overly dramatic and kitsch. Cinematographically speaking, its problem is not that it wants to be ambitiuos (nothing wrong with that), but that the camera angles are repetitive, monotonous and unreal. Crapola, pure crapola.
