(nl) wrote: Good on Australian films but this one wasn't that great...it was watchable but not really memorable. The dialogue was awful and acting wasn't that solid but it was ok for a film made on a shoe string budget, it was predictable but had a good scene near the end so I can't completely write it off...watch with caution!!!
(ag) wrote: this movie was BAD and needed to take a REST and decide who it wanted to be. the worst thing i have ever seen in the whole of my life, an hour and a half of my life that would have been better spent literally stabbing myself in the eyes, i will never get that time back.
(ru) wrote: It's so weird! The movie takes the approach of being all about the surreal visuals rather than a concrete story. The movie felt much like a dream as it was filled with random scenes of weirdness violence and humour as can be found in all of Takeshi's films. The idea was also very interesting of Kitano playing himself the superstar and a lowly convenience store clerk who wishes to become him. It's very hard to tell what is in reality and not past about the first 15 minutes, but it's ok. The director himself even claimed it was a film not to be completely understood just watched. Many people will hate it, but for those who have seen and understood the crazy mind of Beat Takeshi it's wonderful homage to one of the coolest funny actor/director/writer in Japan.

(ag) wrote: Interesting French thriller eschews taut plotting and more conventional suspense conventions for engrossing psychological character development. It does stretch credibility in places, but all in all a fine, well-crafted Hitchcockian thriller.

(it) wrote: Unlike many "sex symbols," Raquel Welch can actually act, and after putting in her time in parts that featured her physique more than her talent, she started choosing her own roles, and this was one of them. While the movie itself is dated and not Oscar material, it does show Welch doing very well playing a very unglamorous role (watch her chomping her gum during the National Anthem).
