The Good Shepherd
Edward Wilson, the only witness to his father's suicide and member of the Skull and Bones Society while a student at Yale, is a morally upright young man who values honor and discretion, qualities that help him to be recruited for a career in the newly founded OSS. His dedication to his work does not come without a price though, leading him to sacrifice his ideals and eventually his family.
The tumultuous early history of the Central Intelligence Agency is viewed through the prism of one man's life. As the country slips deeper into the Cold War, he finds that dedication to duty above family has a price. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

(jp) wrote: Evil Japan invade innocent China, a dozen church school girls and a dozen women from the red light district escape the invaders to a church where a drunkard laowai sees the light and saves the day.. Sometimes very beautiful eye candy, sometimes too jingoistic portrait of the inhumane and brutal Japanese (although afaik really bad sh*t went down there and then). Not Yimou Zhang's (Red Sorghum, Raise the Red Lantern, Hero, House of the Flying Daggers, Curse of the Golden Flower etc) best works.
(us) wrote: A typically beautiful film from Hou. His patient camera watches his characters with affection and captures quiet moments of connection and disruption that might otherwise go unnoticed. As a piece dedicated to Ozu, it picks up on Ozu's theme of family, and the modern setting reveals just how far culture has fallen in the intervening decades, as the default has become an independent, "I can do it alone" kind of attitude. Yet the film, in its quiet way, beautifully undercuts this modern notion.

(us) wrote: The writing and acting is just horrible. The plot has potential but it fell onto the lines of being predicatble. The constant flashbacks are unneccesary and do nothing but ruin the 'suspense.' The female co-star is annoying as hell and theres no chemistry between the two main characters.
(fr) wrote: It grows tense and mysterious with excellent special effects and make-up while always holding our interest, but in the last half-hour it goes completely astray and over the top, losing its direction and becoming a hilarious mess with an insane climax.

(fr) wrote: Jules Dassin is the master of the hiest genre in "Topkapi". I found the film rather entertaining particularly the great hiest sequence which is reminescent to Dassin's early picture "Raffi". The cast is pretty good. You got Melina Mercouri, Peter Ustinov, Robert Morley and Maximilian Schell who reminded me of Daniel Day-Lewis.

(fr) wrote: Hugely enjoyable account of gender politics in 1950s Italy. As the plot progresses its fascinating to see how the characters develop. The period detail is intoxicating. Antonioni gets you really involved by useing long takes and moving the camera all the time. Good as it was to see a one off cinema screening, the enjoyment was compromised by a widescreen projection of the 1.37 print , chopping heads etc. of the characters.
(ag) wrote: Great Performances from the cast about this disturbing story. I remember reading the news article about this when it happened in 1996. It is a very slow paced film and very depressing. You won't feel great about life after watching this movie.
(es) wrote: A romance novel writer and a stunt man specializing in explosives develop a plan to extort millions from a perpetually stoned playboy. It sounded like a solid plan---oddball characters played by Crispin Glover and Christian Slater double-crossing each other in an adaptation of a Leonard Elmore novel---but the director bungled the the caper badly with unbelievable characterizations and jokes that fall flat.
(it) wrote: To be honest, I actually kinda liked this movie. But not for a plot or anything, it's just entertaining. I know a movie needs a plot and a storyline and things like that but for some reason for me it worked without one. But I don't recommend this for anyone who wants a plot because this movie doesn't really have one. C-
