Ilja S (it) wrote: Outstanding performances, an intriguing story and heartfelt moments from the young and old make 20th Century Women a very interesting period piece. A struggle in the youth is a struggle in the elder, which director Mike Mills manages to portray beautifully. Billy Crudup and Greta Gerwig are the standout characters, and the interaction of the whole cast is just great. A relevant yet nostalgic piece of timeless cinema.
Ian L (ru) wrote: Utter rubbish. I watched this on an aeroplane because I like Jude Law and Richard E. Grant. What were they thinking when they agreed to do this? There was clearly no budget, so it wasn't for the money. The script was terrible, Jude Law was doing a hammed up version of Tom Hardy in Bronson (which I highly recommend), there was no story to speak of, except that Law's character was a very horrible man that no viewer could possibly care about. Dreadful, dreadful, dreadful. 0 stars.
Geoffrey T (ru) wrote: If you've ever seen an independent film about a lonely guy trying to improve himself, failing, and then finding out he loves himself anyway, well then you've seen this movie. Whatever this lacks in originality or intelligent scripting is made up for by the meticulous acting. With a cast like this, it's no surprise that the acting is terrific, but this movie would be a boring disaster without them really. They make every scene enjoyable, awkward, etc. They make the pain the characters feel seem strikingly real, and makes pathetic actions seem cute and understandable instead of something worth pitying.
Kevin R (fr) wrote: This was way better than I thought it would be. .a lot of lol moments. Didn't end as expected either..A feel good, friends movie.
Cynthia S (ca) wrote: Do you have a heart that beats inside your body? If you do, then you will like this film. It starts out a little slow, but gets better in the middle and ends with a powerful climax. Yimou Zhang direction is perfect. He just simply tells the story, and it looks great. There is no ego, or fancy editing. The kids in this film are about the cutest things I've ever seen, and are very true to life. In fact, all of this film is very true to life......and like life, it can be beautiful and sad at the same time.
Ola G (br) wrote: A group of four teenage girls in the San Fernando Valley is dealing with the normal problems you have at that age. They try to forget about the negatives things in their lifes by partying and having fun. Deidre (Kandice Stroh) is fascinated by sex, Madge (Marilyn Kagan) is a bit nerdish, Annie (Cherie Currie) is into drugs and Jeanie (Jodie Foster) is the most grown up and she takes care of them all. They think that school is crap, their boyfriends immature and grown-ups come from another planet. Jeanie is worried about Annie and her behaviour. She risks her neck more than once trying to keep Annie clean, and safe-and-sound. But Annie's unstable behavior keeps everyone on the edge..Known about this movie since it came out, but never seen it. And due to me revisiting The Runaways lately and the leadsinger Cherie Currie, I ended up wanting to see this movie. This is a bit of an unfocused flick I think. I felt that there was no real natural flow or transition between a lot of scenes. This is Adrian Lynes first movie, so I reckon that is a bit obvious. But, the performances are pretty strong, particularly from Jodie Foster. "Foxes" is seen as a teen classic today, and a lot of people seem to like it. I do think it is worth a watch.

Garrett C (br) wrote: An existential art house flick about a mute cockfighter. Ah, the underground 70's.
Filippo C (es) wrote: I found the movie extremely intelligent and stimulating. The idea is maybe so actual to be cheap, but it is treated with some originality and sensitivity. Main problem for me were the thousand soap-opera-like (teacher and abandoned wife and only in the end you find out who she is) subplots...

Robert B (us) wrote: for someone who doesn't watch New Girl at all, this was a funny movie and i enjoyed it. i think the premise is actually REALLY realistic - provided you had a real uniform and money to just throw into pretending to be a cop. but the friendship was authentic, the danger was real, and the jokes were good. I thought it was a really entertaining film and probably not necessary to catch in theaters. it'll be funny just on a TV. the casting was great, nothing too stand out. the only thing i found it suffering from was that the actual contrast between the real danger and the fake playing-around vibe wasn't stark enough. the danger didn't really feel that dangerous. it would've been a lot better actually if one of the main characters would have died at the end or something real like that. either way though, a pretty fun film.
