Mahesh Deshmukh has joined the nation's armed forces as that he can honestly and patriotically serve the country. During his college days he has a run-in with fellow-collegian Mohini. A bet between his friends and himself ends up with him falling in love with Mohini, who subsequently realizes that he indeed has fallen in love with her, and she too reciprocates. Mohini's dad is an alcoholic and wishes that Mohini takes up dancing and prostitution so that he can get his daily dose of alchol. Mohini attempts to take refuge with Mahesh, however, cirumstances tangle Mahesh to such an extent that he is arrested, charged, and sentenced to stay away from Bombay city limits. When Mahesh returns, it is no longer the honest, and patriotic Mahesh, but a gangster named Munna, who has many old scores to settle.

The movie has no sense, sometimes it's confusing and VERY weird. I gave to Mall 3 stars because of the photography, THE SOUNDTRACK (OMG I'M IN LOVE WITH THE SONGS AND LINKIN PARK ARE AMAZING), and maaayyybe Cameron Monaghan.

David W (de) wrote: American Beauty is without a doubt, a product of it's time, but it still is a beautifully (Ha!) shot film with an unforgettable score by Thomas Newman. Kevin Spacey and Annette Benning are both superb in this 1990s film of American surburbia

Though the movie as a whole is pretty mediocre, I did love all the geeky references, especially now that I have finally seen Logan's Run. I'm not much of a Shatner fan but I actually enjoyed his performance, particularly during the big finish. However, if you aren't a sci-fi/comic geek, I doubt you'll get much out of it
Michael W (it) wrote: Auto pioneer invests his idea for the car of the future; building his dream and, thus, threatening to bring the Detroit auto industry to its knees with its ingenuity and innovation. Film portrays Tucker in an entirely one-sided light, which ultimately works against itself and seems to limit its credibility.

En effet, ce drame dprimant et pourtant extrmement touchant sur les relations entre des prisonniers de guerre occidentaux et leurs geliers japonais a l'intelligence de prserver toute sa puissance jusqu' la dernire bobine qui transcende tout ce que l'on a pu voir avant. Si Sakamoto Ryuichi n'est pas le meilleur acteur du monde (en revanche, sa bande-son extrmement connue est incroyablement gniale), le trio Tom Conti - David Bowie - Kitano Takeshi est poustouflant. Tout ceci ne serait cependant rien si Oshima Nagisa n'avait pas instaur une atmosphre aussi touffante qu'trange, rendant le tout extrmement original et donc indispensable.
Jeffrey H (fr) wrote: I am a sucker for 1960s excess, and thus The Magic Christian shall always have a special place in my heart. Having since read the Terry Southern novel on which it was based, however, I hope that a straight, unadorned version of this story makes it to film some day. Indeed, Peter Sellers may have delivered the ultimate characterization of eccentricity in his Guy Grand.
Michael W (it) wrote: Incredibly simple, but somehow still very effective. Resnais' choice to attempt the film with a fairly minimalist approach seems to let the subject matter overpower anything else. The film comes across as a stream of thoughts about the events that took place only ten years earlier. Resnais travels to the one of the camps and tells you what he thinks about the monstrosities that humanity is capable of.

Andrew C (gb) wrote: It took a little bit of will power just to make it through this travesty. It's like somebody wanted to do a movie based on Elvis Presley's life, but couldn't get the rights or the family's approval; so in order get around those pesky road blocks, they just changed a few details like the identical twin thing and of course the names and apparently the styles. What we ended up with was a generic Elvis impersonation that just got worse as the movie went on and his appearance became laughable and quite Halloween-y.A couple of questions came to mind during the movie.1. When the birth parents were symbolically burying the baby they lost and told people he died, why did nobody wonder how they managed to fit a baby into the small box they were burying? I know a baby is small, but not THAT small.2. If you one day heard YOUR voice on a record and saw YOUR face on the cover, how could you not freak out and have questions for the people who raised you?After having watched this, it made me want someone w/ talent to do a proper Elvis movie.

Hiding himself in the wilds of Borneo, Learoyd is adopted by a head-hunting tribe of Dayaks, who consider him divine because of his blue eyes. Before long, Learoyd is the reigning king of the Dayaks. When the British soldier Captain Fairbourne (Nigel Havers) and his accomplice Sergeant Tenga (Frank McRae) approach him to rejoin the war against the Japanese, Learoyd resists. But, when his own tribe is threatened by the invaders, Learoyd decides to fight for their rights, and to protect their independence...John Milius has truly a mixed CV on his head with writing credits for movies such as "Dirty Harry", "The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean", "Jeremiah Johnson". "Jaws" and "Apocalypse Now" and direction credits for movies such as "Conan the Barbarian", "Red Dawn" and "Farewell to the King". Lets say he has a nack for various cinematic results. "Farewell to the King" carries the mark of Joseph Conrads "Heart of Darkness" and Francis Ford Coppolas "Apocalypse Now", but is hardly up there with the mentioned works of art. This adventure story based on freedom, war, escapism and struggle with inner demons has such mixed results. First of all you cant get away from the fact the whole film feels like a poor mans "Apocalypse Now" and the performances are varied specifically Nick Nolte hasnt his finest moment and is far too eccentric and far too over the top as Learoyd (bad name as well). The cinematography is ok and the environments are nice. But, something is just missing, despite the important message about war and the nature of the bond between Western adventurers and "savage" tribal people applicable to various American misadventures in history.
