(it) wrote: A tragic, yet heartwarming story of a teenager aspiring to become a writer ,whose life is cut short with an accident...Unbelievable plot & charactersbut good to watch.The dog in the movie is very cute...I feel Sigourney Weaver is miscasted for this role.She seems more like a visually blind person or one with Obsessive Complusive Disorder more than a beleivable autistic. Weaver is usually type casted as hard core vigilante.This role is so "Not Her"....

These were my first thoughts when I heard that this film will be the next topic our English class has to deal with. But that is absolutely not the case! This film is a great enrichment for the viewer and it is no boring stuff at all. Ayub Khan-Din wrote a fantastic script which is perfectly put into action by Damien O'Donnell. The cast members did a good job by giving their characters influences to link them into the right direction. For example Om Puri who played his complex character "George Khan" with such a conviction and even the youngest cast member Jordan Routledge who has absolutely not to hide behind his co-cast members in his performance of Sajid Khan". Also the setting in the 70's is a big success so that you get the impression as if you are living within this time. Mostly I liked the way the writers handled the difficult topic of the different lifestyles of Pakistani and British people without speaking in favour for one group. They used a lot of prejudices about both cultures but they converted it into funny scenes everybody has to laugh about. So a good balance between comedy and tragedy is created because of the spontaneous comic relieves. The film gives a good opportunity for watching it for entertainment but also for talking seriously about it, like for example the two generations and their different points of view: On the one hand we can see the young generation of Sajid who does not care if his friend Earnest is a Pakistani or not. And also Tariq who does not want to be a devout Pakistani and likes partying all night even if his father gets angry about it. But on the other hand, there is the older generation of immigrants George belongs to which is extremely influenced by their traditional values and it is hard for them to adapt to the British society. It seems as if especially George does not learn from his mistakes: After the failed arranged marriage of eldest son Nazir, he tries to plan marriages for his sons Tariq and Abdul who are strongly against it. At the end, left alone from his family, George seems to be contemplative and Ella goes back to him for reconciliation. But the viewer does not get to know whether George changes his behaviour or not but you can still hope it! And that's why "East is East" is such an intoxicating movie: Everybody can identify with one of the characters and so you suffer with Ella when she is beaten up by her husband, you laugh with the siblings when they are teasing each other, you want to give them good advices and most importantly, you think about what you would have done in their situation. So I can really recommend watching this movie because of the good balance of comical and tragically effects, the great actors and not to forget, the fantastic story written by a man who collected his first experiences by creating this script which was such a success.

The challenges of moving from concept/idea/script to its practical realization in front of the camera is endlessly fascinating and, of course, movies in this tradition are always focused on the troubles that ensue. Whereas Fellini's 8 1/2 sees the director stuck for ideas, Truffaut's more minor (but still endearing) work shows the director trying to hold a motley cast and crew together while they over-react to relationship dramas on the sidelines and downgrade (or upgrade) their expectations about what kind of film is going to be accomplished. The moneymen are barely kept at bay. Truffaut brings a lot of anecdotes from his own career to the table (e.g., working with a cat) and also pays tribute to some of his favorite filmmakers. Similar in some ways to Richard Rush's The Stuntman (1980) although with a much more sedate director (played by Truffaut himself), this is an affectionate depiction of the passion that is required to get a movie made.
(de) wrote: Mimi Rogers gives a remarkable performance in this devastating portrait of addiction and isolation from writer-director Michael Tolkin (best known for writing the novel and screenplay on which Robert Altman based his film The Player). Rogers plays Sharon, a lonely single woman who alleviates the drudgery of her empty life through a series of anonymous sexual encounters. Along the way she meets Randy (David Duchovny, pre-X Files), a fellow sex addict who falls for her. Sharon has a religious conversion and becomes a born-again Christian. She marries Randy and they have a little girl. The turn that the plot takes at this point is something I'll leave unspoken here, as the element of surprise definitely works in this particular film's favor. It's a fascinating film that should open up a debate about the meaning and necessity of faith; the wonderful thing is that the film really doesn't take an explicit position, leaving the viewer to make up his own mind about the story and characters. There are some stilted moments in which the characters come dangerously close to being simple vessels for Tolkin's religion-vs-psychology tract, but thanks to strong performances from a talented cast (which also includes been-there-done-that continental thespian Patrick Bauchau) things never feel too hollow or didactic. An exceedingly well-made low budget film, boasting some truly lovely cinematography. At its best it skirts close to brilliance, but proceed with caution: this is some rather dark, depressing material.
(br) wrote: As far as good things it does, it effectively furthers the mythos, and...umm...something. You know your apes movie isn't good when Roddy McDowell feels so underwhelming you look at the screen thinking it couldn't be McDowell. You also know your movie is bad when your predominant story that takes up give or take 2/3rds of the screentime feels like pointless filler crap. And just when you thought this was all going to line-up perfectly with the previous four films and close the cycle, NOPE. Unlike the 1st, 2nd and 4th film, which, while not being the last film in this series, added a definitive ending, this feels as if it's begging for a sequel. despite being the last movIe. And how ironic that it didn't get a sequel. Wanna know why? Audiences gravitate towards something that makes them feel satisfied, which will draw more audience members, which will invoke a sequel. But at least the 3rd film, though not good and with an open-ending, seemed to leave it's audiences satisfied. This one just doesn't. Acting all across the board is bad, the script is a total mess, and it just feels watered down and mainstream. And that's with Escape kept in mind. 40 years later, Hollywood should learn a few lessons from this movie. At least we got Argo out of it, I think kinda sorta not really.
(kr) wrote: John Boorman's powerfully gripping film based on James Dickey's best selling novel; Dickey wrote the captivating and richly-layered screenplay, about four businessmen who set out on a whitewater rafting trip down a wild Georgia River, but their adventure soon becomes a nightmare of survival when they encounter two demented mountain men, chillingly played by the late Bill McKinney and Herbert Coward. Their innocent nature trip turns into a life and death struggle lace with murder. Fascinating and highly suspenseful throughout with beautiful cinematography by Vilmos Zsigmond, superbly acted by the entire cast particularly Burt Reynolds in the finest dynamic performance of his career, as the strong-willed leader of the men, Jon Voight in a marvelous turn as the sensitive man who finds he wants to release his primitive instincts when his life is at sake. Ned Beatty delivers a superlative performance in his screen debut as the city slicker member of the group who is brutally raped by Bill McKinney's menacing mountain man; in the first on screen depiction of a male rape, and a solid Ronny Cox, as the quiet family man who is completely overwhelmed by the grueling events. Boorman's brilliant direction has triumphantly turned Dickey's acclaimed novel into a thrilling and inspired cinematic work and a landmark American film. Nominated for 3 Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director: John Boorman, Best Film Editing: Tom Priestley. Highly Recommended.
