I love the physical acting-the scenes with him trying to open the beer bottle and wine bottle are great-, and when the agent discusses possible endings, I laughed and clapped, they had no idea! It was an adorable movie that will go into my personal collection.
(mx) wrote: I have not seen this film yet, but just looking at the trailer alone, I can tell they overdramatized this film. I am also interested in if they filmed at the actual location? It looks like it, as I have been there, and I truly hope it is.First of all, I live in the area. I am from Morris County NJ, born, raised, still live here. Greystone Mental Hospital, among other "Weird NJ" type things such as Clinton Road, Fairy Tale Forest, etc, was one of those things everybody just knew about and it was a fun thing for people to do with their friends, if they could get around the cops. It was just one of those things everyone in the area thought about doing, tried to do, etc. Well, when I was in high school in 2003 or 2004, we had a psych project. We were supposed to interview a psychologist at an actual running place, but instead my crazy friends and I, along with a very childlike dad of one of my friends, decided...no, we're gonna break into Greystone, take video footage showing how they mistreated the patients...somehow find that out...maybe find an electric shock thing or something, and then go over to the next building to talk to a "real" psychologist. Back then, they had an extension that was active (no idea if it still is), but the main huge building was entirely abandoned. We snuck around the cops in the middle of the winter (Winter is probably the best time to go because even cops don't want to be out in the freezing cold. I think it was January or December) in broad daylight, but we had one problem once we got to the door. It's locked. How do we get in? So, the dad broke a window at Greystone (ironically, they show a broken window in the trailer. Sometimes I wonder is it the one we broke?)We almost got cut.Now, I am not saying the place is not scary. It is petrifying. However, I found no evidence of the supernatural whatsoever. There was a lot of graffiti, beer cans, strange messages, beds, photos, electric things, child's toys, all kinds of strange things. And the place is huge. And dark. And incredibly frightening.I have my own video footage that I only vaguely remember and I have it on HI-8 tape, so I would need to convert it into DVD format in order to put it on YouTube. I will say props to them for lasting 90 minutes in the place, but I do not believe that anything that remotely looks like that CGI-generated woman on the front of the movie cover exists.The place is terrifying though. It is most terrifying because of the way it looks inside. Beds flipped over, old photographs of patients naked, nurse's diaries (some of which I stole from the place, but a flood in my basement may have ruined them now... I am trying to find them.), and if you're lucky enough you might see some really creepy stuff.We heard noises and ran the hell out of there.Haunted? Who knows. But, this movie would have been better if it was more authentically done. Too bad my HI-8 tape is only about 10 minutes long. I don't think we stayed in there very long and my camera went dead.We did not last long inside. We ran the Hell out of there when we heard a noise. Some of my friends went upstairs and we kind of lost each other for a while which was scary because it is dark in there and kind of looks like a hiding place for bums.I will review again once I have seen the movie. Just thought I would shed a little light from someone who has been there.

(ca) wrote: Based on a true story and among the best movies I've seen. All the cast gave stellar performances and I was especially impressed by John Malkovich's performance as the blind lodger and Danny Glover's as Moze. It is a moving film that held my attention through every minute and I am so very glad I didn't miss it. The final scene confused me until I realised its powerful and moving message - how things should have been if it weren't for deceit, bigotry and hatred.
(ca) wrote: This is an 80's trash movie when at its worst. The story starts off well enough, but then it becomes very uneven with acting that is so over the top that one gets a nosebleed. To make up for this, they makers put in a bunch of over-aged "teenage" girls flashing their tits and arses, hoping it would cover the holes in this badly thought-through story. Did it work? Nah. This is one of those movies that are best left unseen. How this movie ever made it to the cinemas is a conundrum to me. If I were able to give it an negative score, I'd have done so - but alas...
(fr) wrote: Very unsettling psychological drama that never spells everything out for you and I applaud that! Anthony Hopkins is frickin fantastic as a ventriloquist slowly losing his mind (and he's quite good at the magic tricks). The ending is open to interpretation, but by god I wasn't sure what to make of it.

The other is My Dinner With Andre, and wow does he have range - this couldn't be more different!Beautiful B&W photography and a slightly Kafkaesque plotline. I was let down by the ending, too much denouement in what could have been a beautiful tragi-comedy of the absurd. But still a masterwork.
