(au) wrote: One of those films that isn't brilliant but you have to see it through. It's basically a documentary on the life's of several high school kids and their experiences

This may be his best film (perhaps Malcolm X is better) and it is such a beautiful film with terrific performance from Edward Norton along with fine supporting performances from Brian Cox, Barry Pepper, Rosario Dawson and Phillip Seymour Hoffman. The 'Fuck you' scene is one of the best scenes I have ever seen. The cinematography is so terrific and full of bright coloured shots that it's a joy to watch each scene. The film tackles a difficult premise with intelligence and realistic sense without making it feel excessive. I loved the ending as well.
(br) wrote: As with most HP Lovecraft based movies distributed by Full Moon Pictures, they are loosely based on the source material and expand on the short story material. Lurking Fear adds so much illogical characters and motivations that it becomes an incoherent mess right from the start. For a movie which runs 75 minutes, it's also quite boring too. Not enough grue to satisfy in that department. What we have is endless talking in an abandoned church and a few Morlock-like creatures prowling underground, basically waiting till the actors deliver their lines. On the plus side, it has the always reliable Jeffrey Combs.

(ca) wrote: very good movie aldo has a weird pacing. goes from fast to slow to super fast then a bit slow then super fast. the end its mixed. it is clear since there are just 2 of them they are near god levels. a sequel was not realistic considering one was about to fight to the death on a planet prison and the other one jumped into a random universe to redo his life.
(us) wrote: Vertigo is Hitchcock's undisputed best as a director, And James Stewart gives an ahead of his time, further proving him as an anachronism. Where the plot and story die down, the visual richness and immersive directing still soar. This film, however, has unfoundedly replaced Citizen Kane as AFI's best film.

They're arm-in-arm and seemingly all is quiet and right with the world. The second the action starts, when Liz Taylor flicks on the light and we begin hearing her talk with Richard Burton, we know all is definitely not right. And thus begins 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?'.The two play a college history professor and his wife, who is also the dean's daughter, and we quickly come to know that they are (a) very unhappy and frustrated with one another, (b) highly blunt and sarcastic in expressing this, and (c) functioning alcoholics. The first scene which lasts something like 50 minutes and has a younger professor and his wife (George Segal and Sandy Dennis) coming over to drinks is absolutely stunning. The script and Taylor and Burton's performances are outstanding. Humiliation, flirting with the opposite sex, telling stories and confusing "truth and illusion" to play mind games with the other are the order of the day, and the two serve it up again and again in ways which may make your jaw drop. The movie is minimalistic in the sense that it only has these four major characters, two extremely minor characters (who briefly appear when they visit a roadside bar), and it all takes place in a single night, mostly in their home. However, the performances are explosive and 'larger than life'. Taylor in particular really put herself out there, because let's face it, putting on weight and acting like a loud, cheap, bully is far more dangerous for a woman than it is for a man. Images of the SNL sketch from a decade later may come to your mind as she munches on a chicken leg and then carelessly tosses the bone back on the plate in the fridge. She is absolutely exceptional, and was worthy of the Academy Award she received. I was also reminded of the power in some of Jennifer Lawrence's recent performances as I watched her, but Taylor takes it to another level. Burton is also fantastic, trying to remain intellectual and appear above it all, but displaying a frustrated rage within and constantly needling all the three of the other characters. When he goes out for the rifle in the garage as Taylor is telling an embarrassing story about him and returns with it, we feel serious tension, and I thought first-time director Mike Nichols did a great job here and throughout the movie.It loses a teeny bit of momentum towards the middle, and I have to say, the story behind their child, whose apparent death seems to be an explanation for why they've gone a bit kooky, but who has been an imaginary child all along, does not ring true, at least in the emotions it evokes out of each of them. While it's a symbol of an unrealized dream they share, just as Burton's failure to advance in the hierarchy at the college is, to me this is a weakness in the original play. The ending, which as them tenderly resigned to one another despite all that bickering and fighting (and bottle breaking, and choking!), is powerful nonetheless. It's not exactly a feel-good movie, but it's one that will stir you.
