An adaptation of nine stories from Bocaccio's "Decameron": A young Sicilian is swindled twice, but ends up rich; a man poses as a deaf-mute in a convent of curious nuns; a woman must hide her lover when her husband comes home early; a scoundrel fools a priest on his deathbed; three brothers take revenge on their sister's lover; a young girl sleeps on the roof to meet her boyfriend at night; a group of painters wait for inspiration; a crafty priest attempts to seduce his friend's wife; and two friends make a pact to find out what happens after death. Pasolini is up to his old tricks satirizing the Church, and throwing in liberal doses of life and love
Writer:Giovanni Boccaccio (novel), Pier Paolo Pasolini

Nick W (es) wrote: Dying Breed is one of those movies that makes you more interested in history than ever before. The main reason for this is because the movie is apparently based off of a true story. It sparks interest in the beginning but you'll gradually lose that interest the more you get into the movie up until people start being killed off. That's when the fun begins because, as we all know, the best parts of horror movies are blood and gore.

Edwin P (ca) wrote: At the heart of the film, it asks one fundamental question: What is happiness, and how does one achieve it? Director Jill Sprecher ("Clockwatchers") uses a very creative storytelling style that interlocks five stories of various New York residents. Part of the film's appeal is how this style unfolds as it seamlessly blend all five threads into a collective whole maintaining the same tone and symmetry throughout. A man approaching middle age decides to change his life. A rising young attorney's plans are thrown into disarray as the result of a single act. A woman faces her husband's infidelity. An envious businessman seeks revenge on a cheerful coworker. And an optimistic young cleaning woman awaits a miracle. Alan Arkin, Matthew McConaughey, Amy Irving, John Turturro and Clea Duval are all impressive and give humanity to their respective characters. This is mostly a talking picture and as the title suggests it demands the utmost attention from the viewer. "13 Conversations", in more ways than one, is food for thought. The beauty of the film is that it doesn't even dare answer the question it originally poses as any answers provided would have been dictated by the filmmakers. Instead, they are smart to let the audience come up with their own.

Brad S (es) wrote: This film-noir is the third of four films Bogart and Bacall did together. One interesting thing about it is the first 40mins or so are first-person from the perspective of Bogart's character. The film is good, but not great. Worth watching though for fans of Bogart and/or Bacall.
