(br) wrote: from allmovie: Filmmaker Martin Scorsese continues his highly personal survey of film history for a new generation with Il Mio Viaggio In Italia, a four-hour documentary that never fails to engross. Less an encyclopedic chronicle than a selective tour of Scorsese's favorite Italian movies and directors, the documentary offers novices an indispensable primer on a national cinema that has profoundly impacted the art. The personal nature of the project becomes clear early on in Scorsese's earnest affirmation of the power of movies "to interact with life and to fortify the soul." Highlighting the films of such titans as Roberto Rossellini, Vittorio De Sica, Luchino Visconti, Federico Fellini and Michelangelo Antonioni (though Visconti's The Leopard is a curious omission), Scorsese occasionally slows down to highlight certain scenes and offer insights on mise-en-scene, cinematography, acting, among other noteworthy aspects of a movie. At times, the comments can be revelatory, giving the audience a glimpse of how Scorsese's own artistic vision was influenced by the films on view. Aspiring filmmakers and rookie film buffs would do well to seek out this film. Rich and rewarding, it's nothing less than a perceptive, even touching, expression of movie love from one of the best filmmakers the art has produced.

(fr) wrote: Cliched, cheesy and riddled with problems, but I can't help but like this movie.
(us) wrote: Oh, bad '80s horror flicks, I love you so. If you like "Happy Birthday to Me" or "Prom Night," you'll probably dig this, too. It's not great, but it has some of the most inventive kills I've seen in a film like this. Also, I laughed heartily at the fact that Vanna White makes an appearance.Note also that the score is a complete ripoff of many Hitchcock films, particularly "Vertigo."
(kr) wrote: Newly arrived psychiatric administrator Dr. Richard Thorndyke - played by Mel Brooks - finds some bizarre shenanigans occurring at the Psychoneurotic Institute for the Very, Very Nervous. But when he's framed for murder, Dr. Thorndyke must confront his own neurotic demons, a raging case of "high anxiety," in order to clear his name. This movie is standard Mel Brooks fare containing a handful of satirical reference to Alfred Hitchcock classics: The Birds, Psycho, North by Northwest, and most notably, Vertigo. While not the best of his work during the 1970s and 1980s -- Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles and History of the World, were better -- it is every bit as funny as the Hitchcock movies were spine tingling. Brooks was wonderfully augmented by a supporting cast that will be familiar to viewers of his other movies: Madeleine Kahn, Cloris Leachman and Harvey Korman - as well as Dick Van Patten and Ron Carey (who played Levitt on Barney Miller.)
(it) wrote: Mimi Rogers plays effectively conveys the quiet desperation that drives her character from one of life's extremes to the other... Given her lack of an emotional core, it's not hard to understand where she ends up. Powerful.
(ru) wrote: Short, fast paced and sweet, this non musical and original version of the hit "Chicago" is a fine film in it's own right. Ginger Rogers is wonderfully cast in the title role. Plenty of saucy dialogue, highly entertaining.
(de) wrote: It was a decent action movie and story, but, didn't care much for all the vulgar language that was used throughout the movie.
(fr) wrote: Punisher: War Zone has lots of action, but offers neither style nor substance and the generic, lackluster story and tone makes it prosaic and forgettable.
