(fr) wrote: Hey Anheuser Busch, you suck!
(es) wrote: Completely charming, deeply moving film about an elderly airport janitor who is mistaken for an airplane captain by the local children, after he wears home a pilot's hat he finds in the trash. Endearing, heartwarming, and ultimately a study of what it means to be a hero, "Captain Abu Raed" is a wonderful childhood fable that never skimps on the realism.
(kr) wrote: Unexpected masterpiece. Nice to see how director enjoy the process, work with details and add new layers to make overall impression even better.

(kr) wrote: Another cute one from Rob Lowe early days.
(au) wrote: A scathingly brilliant examination of the struggle between church and the state, with a captivating central performance from Oliver Reed, and undeniably great direction from Ken Russell. Deeply provocative and unsettling, and certainly not for the faint of heart, this film will remain with you after the credits roll, burned into your memory.
(nl) wrote: i thought this was a very interesting and intriguing old mystery thriller from a director who is more known for his comedies. blake edwards delivers a well written film that doesn't feel to overblown or predictable. this film is also a major influence on the career of david lynch, which i thought was very cool. i am honestly really surprised no one has tried to remake this one. yet...
(it) wrote: Set during WWII in the jungles of Burma. Peck plays A Canadian RAF pilot, Squadron Leader Bill Forrester, who suffers from 'shell shock'. Peck is quite good and he really makes the veiwer go through his dementia with him. But he over comes this with the love interest of a native woman. He goes on a small mission and ends up getting shot down in the jungles. The first half of this film drags a damn good bit. But once the survival story kicks in it becomes a real great adventure film. Not your typical war film, this is more of a survivalist film.
