(de) wrote: Ken Russell's masterpiece has cult movie written all over it. A lurid, extreme sex-and-violence fantasy porno-movie, it is also a brilliant satire on the American way of sex. Kathleen Turner really goes the limit as an actress in her role as China Blue. She looks great and gives more to the film than it really deserves. This is getting more hotter than Turner's latest film, 1981's Body Heat. Much of the dialogue is clever, witty, and bitingly effective. The performances are top notch - particularly Anthony Perkins as the maniacal priest whom is captivated by the street-smart, fashion-designer-cum-hooker Turner. The sexual scenes are bold, but not sexually explicit.

(kr) wrote: "Big Eyes" is a biographical film about Margaret Keane whose famous paintings were for years being attributed to her husband, Walter. Directed by Tim Burton, this film is much different from usual Burton outings especially with the 1950s-1960s style of cinematography with bright colors and grand landscapes.The basis of the film is essentially the same dramatic events that played out in Margaret Keane's real life. Keane (Amy Adams) was a very talented artist who became extremely popular because of her paintings of children with big eyes, but because of the time period and her jealous and selfish new husband, she never took credit for her work. Instead, Walter (Christoph Waltz) took credit for his wife's work, gave interviews, and even sold the artwork all under the impression he was the artist and he did this for a decade. Eventually the secret was too big for Keane to handle especially since it was damaging her relationship with her daughter, her husband, and friends. Burton's adaptation shows us what all the success was like as well as her confronting Walter for being a fraud and her coming out publicly as the artist. Additionally, we also get to watch that couple duke it out in court with Walter being his own lawyer and the infamous painting showdown where Keane and Walter had to each create a "Big Eyes" painting in front of the jury.While it is a fascinating true-story, Burton's direction is sometimes a hit or a miss with some scenes being a little over the top and the pacing of the film never seems right. Amy Adams is the bright spot of the film for sure, turning in a delightful performance by balancing her character's strengths and vulnerabilities just right. Now, Christoph Waltz is one hell of a talented actor and there are some pretty intense scenes with his talent on display even though it seems uncharacteristic of his true-life counterpart. Adams won a Grammy for her role and Waltz was nominated for a Grammy for his role.The most enjoyable part of the film, for me, is Lana Del Rey's two songs that she recorded for the soundtrack: "Big Eyes" and "I Can Fly." Lana's voice fits so perfect in this 1960s time period that the choice of having her sing in this movie is brilliant. "Big Eyes" is such a great song that it was also nominated for a Golden Globe for "Best Original Song."

(ca) wrote: I have come to realize that John Ford is the greatest director of American films to have ever walked the earth. He seems to have mastered the art of storytelling completely and focused on varying periods of American history. It??s interesting that he was able to bring to life so many different chapters of American history and yet his passion lay closer to Ireland and The Quiet Man. It only proves once again that one can be simultaneously proud of one??s ancestral lands and country, even if they are separated by an ocean. I am similarly drawn to England, Wales, and Germany even though I am also obviously an American. It??s incredible this is Ford??s first Technicolor effort as it looks incredible, but then again he did have Mrs. Kalmus in the lab (sense the sarcasm, but she did make it look beautiful usually). The chase scene towards the end looks spectacular. It is certainly a far cry from more modern interpretations of the color palette associated with frontier areas though. I can??t say I??m a big Colbert fan, but Fonda turns in another stellar performance and has the eyes to go along with it. I can??t immediately recall a revolutionary war film that compares to this in quality. It??s interesting how relevant aspects of it could be to the current conflicts America is involved in, but the film certainly was not about COIN for Ford. He definitely knows how to end a film though.
