(ru) wrote: An old, confused man of very few words and his son take a journey from Billings to Lincoln to claim a bogus million dollar prize. What's the real prize of this film? The fantastic, melancholic, and sometimes, hilarious journey between this stubborn father and his sensitive son.
(ru) wrote: Although set in the 80's and 90's, the production itself feels a little old school too from that period.
(jp) wrote: A Swedish movie with English subtitles. It's a bit depressing but the movie is one that will leave an impression on you for a long time.
(br) wrote: I enjoyed Sex and Death 101 much more then I thought I would, not only because of Simon Baker but because I found the film itself was very enjoyable to watch and had a few good belly laughs to boot (one in particular had me laughing throughout most of the rest of the film). Don't watch Sex and Death 101 If you are looking for an average popcorn munching comedy film watch it if you are looking for something a bit different and perhaps odd yet still enjoyable. I was lucky enough to pick it up due to my undying love of Simon Baker and I'm happy I did.
(ca) wrote: Not a particularly good film, although the climax is excellent. It's almost worth suffering through the rest of it to get to the scene where Julia begins to kick ass and take names. Annette Bening's artificiality is used to her advantage here, and she manages a very sincere moment at the very end of the film. The rest of it is witless sauntering, a supposed comedy without any actual laughs. It's tiresome, and not served very well by some terrible camerawork. A mixed bag, in general. But why are Americans playing Poms, and vice-versa? Odd.

(ru) wrote: This movie is one of my favorites of this genre...the acting is very good, the shots and cinematography give it an appropriate old feel. It has some comedy and lots of realism (with family peoblems), there's trajedy and happy experiences in this film...it has everything! It was a joy to watch in the 90s and it was equally enjoyable when I recently watched it! Is it my favorite film that I have rated 5/5? No but it's a must watch!
(it) wrote: Despite how uncomfortable this film made me feel, it was really good. I like the way their story was portrayed. It wasn't saying that they were crazy bitches that murdered their employees. It was saying that any person in their position would go insane. And although their relationship was strange and abnormal, it was sort of beautiful. All they had was each other. It's quite clear that Christine Papin suffered from mental illness which probably contributed to the gruesome murder. Such a tragic story.
(nl) wrote: I entirely loved the voice-over narrator's comments and poetry. This is insightful and terrifyingly real. As a movie, however, "Leolo" didn't strike the same chord for me. There was no difference to me between the reality and fantasy worlds. It all seemed slightly askew. Maybe I was simply put off by the fact that every single character in this movie, including Leo, was stark raving mad. That makes for an uncomfortable viewing experience to say the least. It is worth a watch as long as you prepare yourself in advance.
(fr) wrote: Fantastic. Sid and Nancy is a truly rare gem. It's messy and full of profanities and foul shouting and it's a very dysfunctional relationship that Sid and Nancy had, yet it's so easy to feel the love they have for each other. Gary Oldman is in yet another remarkable performance that kept me wondering why he hasn't won any Oscars until today and Chloe Webb is nothing but outstanding, reliving the "Nauseating Nancy" in a fabulous portrayal. Sid and Nancy is an interesting story, despite whether it's historically accurate or not. And I believe it's rare that we could feel so much love beneath such massive self-destruction. They were so young and foolish but I couldn't hate them. That's why I said Alex Cox nailed it. He could brought up the complex characters of Sid and Nancy in a perfect light that instead of hating them, what we could feel was sympathy. It's a must watch for moviegoers, and trust me, there'd be many scenes that would forever be attached in your mind.
