We follow Captain Nascimento who is struggling to find a replacement as he wishes to quick for when he becomes a father. Two of the potential new recruits are Matias, a dedicated law student and Neto, a headstrong cop stuck working as a mechanic. The film is a brutal look at the hellish lives in the slums, as well as the danger the police put themselves through everyday. We see the Elite Squad, known as BOPE, acting incredibly tough and shooting to kill, but we never once doubt their methods. The film is a thrilling ride, but it is hampered by what seems like a hastily added voice-over which explains everything that is going on, making long periods of the film sound like an audiobook. It also feels like the first chapter of a much larger story, which in a way is a good sign as it left me wanting much, much more.I enjoyed every single character but I really do think the two new recruits should have been the focus throughout.

Jack G (kr) wrote: In the story of 'White', one of the segments as part of the "Three-Colors Trilogy" that capped off the career of Kieslowski (this was released second after 'Blue', just before 'Red'), Karol (Zbigniew Zamachowski) is married to Dominique (Julie Delpy), but at the start of the film they're getting a divorce. What harm exactly did he do to her? We don't quite know. All we can really gleam is that he loves her passionately but, you know how the "Golddiggers" song goes, huh fellas? This is not to say that this film is misogynistic, or rather I don't think that is really Kieslowski's game with the satire here - and make no mistake, this is as biting satire (and out-and-out comedy) as it can get for such a director. While Dominique is conniving - she leaves poor Karol with nothing but a suitcase, and despite him trying to get her back he turns up (in more ways than one) flaccid. Can he win her back some how? He's still crazy about her - he even buys a statue that looks remarkably like her to keep by his side.Through a rather crazy set of circumstances, which include meeting another Polish man in France who wants him to commit a murder for money (a lot of it) and then finding a way back to Poland by, you guessed it, stuffing himself inside of a suitcase (sure, it gets stolen and he's beaten up by the thieves, but it's the price to pay for getting back to Poland). He tries to build himself back up, and does by chance and ingenuity - and screwing over other crooks before they get the chance to steal people of their land - and all of this is really to do one thing: find a way to get Dominique back into his life. How will this be done? By some unlikely means necessary.A couple of points in White, perhaps mid-way through, seemed a little slow when the film wasn't sure quite what to do with Karol. What is he doing back in Wasaw exactly? Where will this story be going to? And, most confusingly, why does Delpy's Dominique pop up - randomly, to my point of view - two times in the middle of the film, just clips of scenes of her later on in the film? Kieslowski is much more sly in this film than he is in Blue or Red, films that dealt on more concrete terms about existential anxiety and about not connecting with people after traumas of lapses in connection (re Binoche, who randomly pops up in a bling-and-you'll miss cameo and Trintignant).I think the key to me came after seeing the film and noticing a reviewer comparing Kieslowski's approach as a critique of capitalism in the modern age. Before reading that, White was an entertaining film but, comparatively, "light" in what it has to offer. It is all still a divorce-con-job story, with overtones in the third act of, of all things, The Third Man in its trickery of a character playing dead. But what does carry over in this film - which features its title color revealed at moments of revelation, the wedding dress Delpy wears, and an actual climactic "moment" - is the humor and commentary on a society picking itself up, as Poland was, in the days of the end of Communist rule. I wish I had put that context more for when I was watching it, and maybe on a re-watch it will be more interesting with that in mind.If it does keep from being great overall, it may be because it's a little too... short, in a way. A part of me wishes there was just a scene or two more development of Karol/Dominique's relationship, but on the other hand it's easy to see why Kieslowski keeps it to what it is: love that is more about need and desire than full-on compatibility, on both sides.It goes by in a brisk 90 minutes, and Delpy is there for all of 20 minutes, tops (her appearance on the cover is more for advertisement purposes). When she does appear in the film, her character is raw and duplicitous at first, but strangely vulnerable when it comes to her sorta comeuppance when she really returns. In this midsection, and really our hero, we have Zamachowski, and he is terrific and funny and sad and all sort of things as this hapless guy who knows he loves his wife, even (especially) when he's enacting his obsessive-revenge-type of response to her rejection of him. If there was ever an American remake - not that one should want it, but hypothetically - Paul Giamatti would fit the role perfectly. He's an average, shlubby every-man who is three dimensional: likable, unlikable, fairly slick one minute and idiotic the next.For a director who is often looked at as having very "Heavy" films, and for good reason, a film like Three Colors: White is, for lack of a better word, fun, and it's enjoyable mostly to see the director work in such a mood - though the ending turns out to be rather tragic in what it suggests will come for these characters' double crossings.
Robert T (de) wrote: A history of the origins of the Japanese Tea Ceremony. Hardly sounds like a recipe for riveting film making, does it? I'm glad I gave this a spin since while understated, it's also an extremely powerful movie which had me spellbound. Tea drinking, you see, was part of the Samurai state of mind, a way of attaining purity of mind before going into battle. One lump or two?

crystal t (jp) wrote: This movie is about Sharron. Sharron is a switch board operator for 411 information. Sharron is a lost soul in darkness, living without God. Sharron is witnessed to by two men. She first shuts the door in their faces but then reopens it and lets them in. They witness to her about God. She has many questions that they answer. They tell her to trust in God. She asks about the boy prophet. They tell her there are others like him all around the world. Randy is a guy who Sharron meets through swing dating. She tells him she is trying a new religion and wants to get clean. Randy says there's no God, only chaos. He rejects her idea. He leaves. She picks up a hitchhiker and goes to an area motel. He thinks he's going to get sex but she takes his gun and tells him to leave. She trys to commit suicide's but can't. Instead she picks up a bible and starts reading it. Vick the guy she goes swinging with rejects her idea of God as well. He tells her to call him when that fase of her life is over. She goes to work and starts witnessing to people over the phone. Her boss tells her that he believes but doesn't know when judgment day will come. Six years later Sharron and Randy are married and have a little girl. Randy is the boss of a company and he fires a guy named Lewis. Lewis is an alcoholic that couldn't perform his duties. Lewis gets mad and comes back with a shotgun. He kills everyone including Randy. Sharron fells she is getting a message from God to go to the dessert and wait for his return. Both her and her daughter go. They wait for several days. A cop drives by telling them that they can only stay two weeks at one campsite. Sharron moves to another. The cop checks on the girls. Both of the girls gets hungry and decide to go into town. They drive off without paying. Sharron ends up shooting her daughter so she can go to heaven. Once again Sharron tries but fails at committing suicide. She knows she want get into heaven by killing herself. Sharron gets pulled over for speeding and confesses to killing her daughter. She is sent to jail. While in jail she sees a lady she once met. This lady is a Christian now. Sharron no longer believes in God. She has a dream and in her dream her daughter comes to her. She wants her to love God but Sharron can't. A miracle happens to the jail bars and they think the end is near. The cop comes back and asks her more questions. He now believes but Sharron still denounces God. While on the cops motorcycle they see the horseman who takes them to the river that washes away all sin. On one side is heaven and the other is hell. Gabriel is coming so the cop goes to heaven because he believes but Sharron says no to God. She can't understand why he would let her kill her own daughter. Sharron goes to hell.This story depicts what Christianity is about. Christians believe in heaven and hell, there is no in between. They think the Hindus and Buddhists will go to hell without God. With the Christian faith all one has to do to get into heaven is ask God for forgiveness and love him. Leading a life of purity and obeying the ten commandments is the good deeds God asks for.

Kenny J (au) wrote: Simply put a brilliant movie, this is where the star of Robert Downey Jr began to shine, Downey for you younger people just know him for Iron Man but us that grew up with him and his movies know him for his physical comedy and comedy timing and no more does that shine in this delightful 1989 comedy "Chances Are" this movie has everything a beautiful Cybill Sheppard in her "Moonlighting" heyday, Mary Stuart Masterson just coming off of "Some kind of Wonderful" and every teenager boy fantasy and old pro Ryan O`Neal who is so appealing as the best friend who loves Corrine, Robery Downey Jr is simply terrific as Alex who`s in love with young Miranda played by Masterson, but he finds himself slowly remembering things of Corrine`s dead husband Louie. especially a hysterical dance sequence where Alex is trying to get 2 million dollars for a charity. I just seen this movie last week and i simply love this movie the song was moinated for a Oscar "After All" sung by Cher and Peter Cetera. If you haven`t seen this hidden gem, i would reccommend this HIGHLY and "Heart and Souls" a 1993 movie also with Downey, I wish Downey would do MORE Comedy movies the super hero movies. but hey that pays the bills.
