Kevin D (fr) wrote: Wolfgang Peterson's tastes for deep and powerful stories resonates through the epic adventure 'Troy'. It is a loose adaptation of some of Greek literature's most historical poems (as it seems to be based on Homer's Iliad, and the Aenied from Virgil), brought with flair and a rather beautiful sense of artistic license.A star studded cast fill every scene of this movie. Most notably in my opinion is Brian Cox as Agamemnon, a man driven by his own nepotism towards his brother, and his desire to conquer. Brad Pitt and Eric Bana, both in their physical prime, portray Achilles of Greece and Hector of Troy respectively and create an excellent dichotomy between their rivalry.Despite Troy's departure from its poetic origins, it's main theme is one of immortality. Right from the beginning there is a wonderful little quote between Achilles and a servant boy who is sent to summon the warrior to battle on bequest of Agamemnon. The boy expresses his fear of battling the great warrior awaiting Achilles, and he looks down on the boy from horse-top; "That is why no one will remember your name." Achilles only dream is to be remembered beyond his years as the greatest warrior in Greece. To die in battle is the only honor a soldier could receive in those day, and was fully expected of them, however only the truly exceptional, or the truly powerful, will be remembered for millennia. The love of the Greek people is what causes the main rivalry between Achilles and Agamemnon, as both are striving to be remembered for eon's after they are gone. It's a beautiful idea, and a constant drive for both characters.Overall, there are a lot of critics who deride this film for its departures from its literary origin. But I believe, just from a cinematic viewpoint that it is an exceptional tale. Perhaps this film will even aspire a few viewers to go out and read Homer's works. It is a fair estimate that most viewers will watch this film simply for the adventure, and that is where this movie excels.3/5

Charles P (mx) wrote: Stntang is a spellbinding and haunting masterpiece - a challenging, maddening, calming, and astounding seven-hour parable of apocalyptic undertones, stark cinematography, and grotesque beauty.

Natalie K (au) wrote: Some beautiful cinematography.

John T (ag) wrote: Jean Rollin again. Like most of his work, it's beautiful, lots of naked girls running around, but end the end it lacks substance. If you just want to watch something pretty this is for you. Not bad to do every once in awhile.

Xain R (gb) wrote: A wonderful film. Presents the era in which women were mostly consumed with the thought to get themselves established by marrying a well settled man. And they would not mind any age difference or deformity in the man. Witty, Intelligent and very beautiful performances by all three ladies.

Michael H (nl) wrote: Much copied; seldom equaled. Capra established the template for romantic comedies with IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT and did it better than most anyone since. The energy of the movie ebbs and flows between quiet, reflective scenes and manic energy as Colbert and Gable gradually transition from finding each other useful, to finding each other indispensable. Until their budding relationship is undone through misunderstandings that throw them back into old patterns.The couple isn't separate from their environment, but lives in a populated world where people interact (for good or ill) and we see how people lived and traveled in depression era America. The dialog is sharp. The mores perhaps a bit more nuanced and less black and white than we might expect looking back with what we believe are more sophisticated eyes. All in all; a delightful movie that sneaks in a few jabs at society.

Matt B (es) wrote: One Hour Photo is one of the creepiest psychological thrillers I've ever seen. Robin Williams proves that he can't only do comedy: he can play creepy disturbed loners too. He's AMAZING.The movie is stylish and unnerving. It works as a thriller and a character study. Williams's character, Sy, is a complete creeper stalking on a family, but at the same time you do feel sympathy for him. He's just a lonely guy in need for a family. Such a tragic character.
