(nl) wrote: Interesting experimental documentary about serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer uses recreation and archival footage to tell the events of the capture of the depraved killer. Although not very long, The Jeffrey Dahmer Profile is an interesting film, and it is one that is shocking from start to finish because Dahmer's crimes were despicable. The cast do a good job in the reaction parts, and some of the footage used, is quite disturbing, but necessary in order to tell a broad story of Dahmer's crimes. Viewers interested in the subject will surely find this a fascinating viewing experience, and one that you won't forget. The Jeffrey Dahmer Profile is not for everyone, but to those interested in the subject, this is a must watch. As a documentary, the film works well, but it's far from be8ing a standout in the genre. I would say that this is a good movie, but considering its run time, it doesn't really go in depth about the subject of Dahmer. Fo9r a short film, it gives you an idea of what happened, but it does feel a little light. The recreations are well done, and work well, but a straight forward documentary would have been better. Since this one recreates most of the events for the duration of the film, I think that this film could have benefited from a more realistic approach to9 the events by documenting the facts with actual interviews from those involved in the case. The film works to a certain degree, but in the long run it could have been a much better movie as well. As it is, it's good, but it could have been better as well.

Doch hat es seinen Ruf verdient, ist es auch nach achtzig Jahren noch unterhaltsam?Musical ist wohl mein meistverhasstes Genre. Mein Hauptkritikpunkt war immer, dass die Musicalnummern mit der Diegese des Films brechen und so die Illusion, das was Film von allen Knsten am besten kann, zerstrt. Auerdem sind die Filme meistens melodramatische Schinken, auf weibliches Publikum abgestimmt, voll schablonenhafter Charaktere und mit vorhersehbarer Handlung.42nd Street ist keine Ausnahme, auch wenn die Musiknummern, damals in den Dreiigern, noch besser in den Film eingebaut wurden, und im Rahmen einer Bhnenshow stattfanden.Die Schwche des Films ist somit mein zweiter Kritikpunkt an Musicals. Der Film ist teilweise einfach bld, dumm, nenne man es wie man wolle.Die Rahmenhandlung ist grtenteils Screwball Comedy/Romance, die ein paar Schauspieler des Ensembles und den Lover der Hauptdarstellerin betrifft (die allerdings mit dem reichen Geldgeber liiert ist, der fr die ganze Showse zahlt). Man kann sich schon vorstellen, wie das ganze ablaufen wird, und auch wenn der Film an manchen Stellen ernsthaft versucht die Probleme der amerikanischen Bevlkerung in der Great Depression" zu thematisieren, ist und bleibt 42nd Street eine ziemlich mittelmige Liebesgeschichte.Zumindest bis ca. eine Viertelstunde vor Schluss. Dann entfalten sich all die bereits eingefhrten Themen und Songs zu drei groen Musicalnummern die es in sich haben. Eigentlich knnte man die erste Stunde berspringen und wrde trotzdem auf seine Kosten kommen - v.a. die abschlieende Nummer 42nd Street" ist einfach groartig - groartig choreographiert, groartig gesungen, groartig komponiert und aufwndigst in Punkto Set und Statistenaufwand.Mag der Film auch noch so corny, screwball, bld oder sexistisch sein, und das Liebes-Fnf(?)-Eck nicht ganz berzeugen, die Musicalnummern sind extrem gut - und bis dahin ist der Film zugegebenermaen auch recht kurzweilig - wenn auch nicht anspruchsvoll.

(ag) wrote: I was intrigued, even though "Carol" was not nominated for Best Picture, why both Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara both received Best Actress nominations during the Golden Globes, but only Cate receiving the Best Actress nomination for the Oscar, relegating Rooney to the "Best Supporting Actress" pile. Early in the process, I was actually under the impression that this was the movie to beat this Oscar season, which is why the lack of Best Pic nom really surprised me. Having finally watched it, I'm even more confused. "Carol" is nearly as strong a love story as "Brokeback Mountain." I don't mean to compare the two as they include the forbidden love of two gay characters in a time when there was practically zero acceptance. To me, those are coincidental elements. I felt the love between these two characters very deeply, like I did in "Brokeback." Being gay had nothing to do with it. Maybe the societal taboo of it all made the sadness of their inability to love like they want seem that much stronger, and thus portray a stronger love story overall, but being gay never entered my psyche about it. These two tremendously strong actresses wandering through a slow, sensual build-up of falling in love, culminating in that eventual, passionate expression of love, was masterfully done. What made "Brokeback" better, I believe, is that the forbidden nature of it eventually resulted in a powerfully sad ending, while "Carol" received more of a Hollywood ending. Given that both were based on novels, though, the stories were already written. While I walked away from "Brokeback" with a heart as crushed as Heath Ledger's, I walked away from "Carol" with optimism and excitement for a love that looked as though it would make it. Cate Blanchett powerfully delivers the key, unapologetic acceptance of who she is in a deposition with her estranged husband that wasn't overdramatic for a minute, but couldn't have been a stronger statement. Then Rooney, for all her young confusion and mending, jilted heart, embraced whom she was and, in the end, sought out her love for what no doubt was a happy ending. I loved the pacing of the film and how it had just as much to do with the build-up of their love as the actual story, even when it seemed slow. Nothing was unnaturally rushed. While I don't believe either should beat out Brie Larson for Best Actress, I don't know how the Academy believed Cate was anymore of a lead than Rooney. The Golden Globes got it right. As a result, I believe Rooney will take the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, and that may have been the reasoning all along.
