(de) wrote: Even for a hardcore atheist this thing frequently comes off as unfair to its targets (sarcastic captions, really?) and it's just not a very well-made movie (the interviews are edited like reality TV, fake awkward pauses and all). I'm also not generally a fan of Maher. But it did make me laugh, and I do appreciate the balls it takes to confront people like this, even if ultimately it only broadens the schism instead of bridging it.
(es) wrote: A hit comedy about losingGreat movie, I really enjoyed it. It was a smart but funny movie with a nice message. The film Calvin Marshall transcended your typical sports film to convey the choices we all face in life when it comes to following our dreams, our talents, and what is important in our life. It's not a fairytale story, or the story of the kid from the wrong side of the tracks overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds, or the story of the washed up veteran making an improbable comeback, this is the story of everyman. Steve Zahn absolutely nailed his character and put up one of his best performances, if not the best performance, of his career. I love sport movies!Calvin Marshall's childhood dream of playing Major League Baseball is in serious jeopardy as he can't seem to make the Bayford Bisons Junior College team. A poignant comedy about Calvin's deferred dream and the people in his life who want him to succeed.

(au) wrote: Le Deuxime Souffle is one hell of an interesting transition in style and execution considering Melville's trajectory.On one hand, there's the film-noir influences on his career which resulted in a few of the most important neo-noir contributions in cinema history, directed by Melville himself. Bob le Flambeur (1956) carried this.Then there's the complex web of character interrelations and double-crossings reunited by a primary plot and reacting in secondary subplots, the latter hiding the characters' motivations, interests and intentions. Melville achieves this with true brilliance. Each character is an evil entity of unpredictable moral. An unusual group of characters with various shadowy (and disturbing) backgrounds interacting with a common criminal purpose would reach its height in Le Cercle Rouge (1970), but this web of interrelationships would find its pinnacle in a WWII setting, which everybody recalls as Army of Shadows (1969), a horror testament of despair, conspiracies and deceit.Then there's the violence which plays an important role in Melville's films, which would allow him to close the decade with style and contribute to the ferocity of the neo-noir environment while influencing tons of future different filmmakers in the process. This technical stunt is one I mirror too often with the decisions of some modern directors to invade the "silent" (more subtle) tone of the story with sudden outbursts of hard-hitting violence, like a statement spoken out loud and directly. Belmondo's interrogation scene with a woman in Le Doulos (1962) had censors reacting everywhere.Second to last, we have the slow-pacing and high attention to detail that Melville made in the screenplays and in the execution of the scenes, which would then iconically materialize into fully elaborated heist sequences which realism and overtly prolonged dedications are born straightly from Dassin's masterpiece Rififi (1955), a film that I will never cease to give credit to. This feature would then be reflected in Le Cercle Rouge (1970) and in the director's farewell, Un Flic (1972).Finally, there's the shadowy, existentialist tone of it all, and this is where the transition aspect comes in. The film still feels like a noir heir from certain themes to the visual composition and a handful of characters, but is also a subliminal introduction to the loneliness of Jef Costello in Le Samoura (1969), also noticeable in the protagonists of the world turned upside down in Army of Shadows (1969).In this sense, Le Deuxime Souffle is the Melville film that not only helped him to make a step forward towards his evolved style that assaulted the senses with tremendous power, but also is the only film of his that has all of his famous elements put together, which is maybe why it is his longest film, as far as I'm concerned. It's his most methodical facet. That is quite an epic homework to balance, but after a noticeable effort, everything paid off, including one of the best endings of the decade in European cinema.91/100
