The Fall of the House of Usher
Adapted from Edgar Allan Poe's Fall of the House of Usher, director Jean Epstein studiously avoids cheap shocks in this tale of hereditary madness, choosing instead a tightly controlled, spookily subtle technique. The hero, having indirectly caused the death of his beloved, stubbornly tries to resurrect her spirit by devoting himself to painting and sculpture. Epstein conveys the twilight zone between life and death with lingering dissolves and brilliant utilization of slow motion.

(kr) wrote: An intense and tragic romance between an orphan who becomes a male prostitute and a rich young businessman who becomes obsessed with him, and both actors are great, especially Lee Young-hoon, who is not only incredibly handsome but also notably talented.

(fr) wrote: Fasciinating look at French aristocracy, the inventions, and the outlook and plights of the social class. Truly an interesting film that should be seen, especially by History buffs.
(nl) wrote: A decent and entertaining movie, especially for those who grew up in the 80s and/or are fans of 80s movies. If you liked similar movies- Sixteen Candles, et al.,- then you'll like this one as well. It won't blow you away, but it will entertain you. The little brother Buddy steals the show..
(br) wrote: So we watched this one last night. My expectations were low but I have to honestly say, it was a pretty decent movie. Grant Page is a real stunt man and Sorcery was a real rock band. I like theatrics so I'm sure that I would have loved to see a Sorcery concert. Anyway, this was a tad boring in spots but all in all a pretty good little movie. Right up my ally and not a complete waste of a Saturday night.

(fr) wrote: Interesting mystery, most notable aspect is the use of the camera to show you what the star (Montgomery is seeing) aka shot throw his eyes or viewpoint.

(ca) wrote: Basic is a suspense thriller from director John McTiernan that's overly complicated and takes a few too many turns. The story follows an investigation into a training accident in which 4 officers have gone missing and are presumed dead. John Travolta, Connie Nielsen, Samuel L. Jackson, and Giovanni Ribisi lead the cast and deliver some really good performances. And the story is well told, and effectively builds the suspense and mystery...until the last act. It tries to be a bit too clever and it ends up backfiring. Plot failings aside, Basic still manages to deliver and intense and suspense drama with a captivating mystery.
