About a boy who is tasked with delivering seven boxes of mysterious merchandise across town; on the way, he gets chased by people who want the boxes. It's a pretty unique story and the cinematography (the camera angles at least) are really pretty at times. The film is well-paced, and for a local Paraguayan market, there are a lot of little dangerous events that add to the suspense. It's not my favourite movie at TIFF this year, but you can definitely see the potential in the first-time feature directors.

Mitchell W (nl) wrote: A slow, earthy look at how Chinese culture's evolved in what's essentially a social laboratory in the way its isolated and controlled by government policy. It does test your patience, but it's a rich, fascinating picture. I'd recommend seeing it with a few short breaks just to make it easier to digest. (The shorter, two-and-a-half hour cut is tighter and better. The longer version is actually an earlier cut done in a rush.) The story's social implications are pretty bleak, but how this picture got made is very inspiring. The Chinese underground can be misinterpreted and exaggerated in its 'clandestine' nature, but stripped of romanticism, it's still very idealistic. Unwilling to risk censorship, the movement's filmmakers often make pictures knowing they would remain underground within China's borders. Obtaining a pirated copy would not be difficult, but without advertising or public exhibition, their exposure would be severely limited. Yet a picture like "Platform" exists anyway, and what Jia's accomplished should empower any artist anywhere.

While it doesn't quite reach the heights of Casino Royale and Skyfall, this bond movie is fast-paced, action packed, and filled with awesome moments. The plot is pretty simple, but the execution is great. Brosnan kills it as Bond, Sean Bean is great, and Famke Janssen is marvelous. The plot has more depth than most Bond movies, and the action is mindblowing. There are some story-points that don't mesh well, and it isn't anything extraordinary. However, it stands out amongst the Bond crowd. 8.75/10

Blake P (de) wrote: Eccentric Professor Ambronsius (MacGowran) travels to Transylvania with his assistant, Alfred (Polanksi) to try to end the plague of vampirism in the country. Along the way there, a stay at a hotel causes the two to have a run-in with the innkeeper's beautiful daughter Sarah (Tate)-- who suddenly is captured by the evil Count Von Krolock (Mayne). The two follow them to his castle, but what originally was going to be just a simple little game of a vampire bloodbath just might turn into something a little bit stranger. "The Fearless Vampire Killers" was a gigantic disappointment to me. I've been on a bit of a Roman Polanski high this past week, and I'm slowly becoming a fan. Because this is one of his first films, I was looking forward to seeing it-- especially because it's sandwiched in-between the hilarious "Cul-de-Sac" and the horror classic "Rosemary's Baby". Unfortunately, this is probably my least favorite of all of Polanksi's movies. Don't get me wrong, this isn't by any means a bad film-- there's certain aspects of the film that are great-- the cinematography, the score, and well ... Sharon Tate. But does that make a good film? No. All that would make is a professional picture of Tate with music playing in the background. This film was aiming towards being a satire, but because Polanksi chooses to have limited dialogue, not much of it is funny-- mostly because when the characters DO get to speak for once, it still isn't funny. None of the characters are interesting by any means, and the physical comedy that is supposed to be just so gosh-darn hilarious just makes the already failing film worse. Polanksi is a superb director-- this is just a slip-up, and every director has at least one. "The Fearless Vampire Killers" has nothing on Polanki's other films, but for die-hard fans it's worth a look.
