(nl) wrote: The Swell Season is more a piece about the complications of romance through sudden fame and presents Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova as subjects very open and aware of the complexity of emotions. The rich black and white cinematography provides a beautiful atmosphere for the emotions and the music.
(ag) wrote: Guillaume Canet's ode to The Big Chill has some funny, touching moments, but it's 154 minutes long..... Why? No idea. It's just completely unnecessary to make a film this long. My other problem with Little White Lies is we're supposed to care about a group of friends who decide to go on vacation when one of their friends (Jean Dujardin) is stuck in a hospital bed after being nearly killed in a motorcycle accident. Some friends they are....
(de) wrote: "The Orphan Killer" is a modern slasher horror that builds upon the classic elements of psycho killer lore with thoughtful, surreal aesthetics and brutal blood-spilling force. The film is directed by Matt Farnsworth and stars Diane Foster, David Backus, Matt Farnsworth, James McCaffrey. The film has one of the coolest and cruelest killers in the slasher genre. The story follows Audrey Miller and her homicidally delusional brother Marcus Miller. Siblings whose world is turned upside down by a home invasion that leads to the murder of their parents. Orphaned then separated, the two kids lives lead in very different directions. One prospers in the community while the other becomes a monster of urban legend that haunts the halls of the orphanage. Audrey soon faces her past with excruciatingly painful objectivity. The story of "The Orphan Killer" is truly a modern, creative one with a new evil stepping up to the horror plate creating a nightmare perfectly framed in the aspects of religious grandiosity. There are certain little moments that take from various elements of the story's slasher genre past that act more to highlight and pay tribute to Matt Farnsworth love of the genre, moments that are best left for the fan to discover than to point out in this review. I just have to say that even though I noticed small moments that are reminiscent of some horror classics, pretty much every aspect of this film has a unique feel and vision all it's own. "The Orphan Killer" does truly offer up a new nightmare killer and powerfully intimidating horror icon. The acting and visual style of "The Orphan Killer" somehow blends the surreal and American grindcore cinema techniques effortlessly. The continuity and unease of atmosphere that echoes through the film provides a nonstop intense, chilling ride into hell. There were moments in the film I had to look away from the graphic display, not from a weak stomach but because the seen was so intense I needed a moment of relief. The characters in "The Orphan Killer" are straight forward, grounded characters and yet there are some moments in the story that display widely unnatural behavior-but I am not Catholic, nor did I grow up in a Catholic world so I don't know if nuns really fantasize about sucking cock. Maybe they do. Anyway this movie is pretty epic in it's storytelling, artistic style and character integrity both with the killer and the protagonist. "The Orphan Killer" is truly one of those great indie horror films that gets it all right. The story is morbid, dark and intense. The acting and action is thrilling from almost the word go. The kill sequences and special effects are gruesome and realistically unsettling. The soundtrack rocks and the The Orphan Killer himself is a true, terrifying force of evil that isn't easily forgettable. This film is definitely one to see for all horror fans.

Greg Aronowitz does a great job mining the recent past for a modern good time romp for the kidlings, and by the end even us older folks might feel a pull on the heart strings too.

(ru) wrote: A movie that is equal parts funny and sentimental. The performances and the script are by far what really stand out with this movie. Shirley Maclaine and Debra Winger both gave their characters so much life you felt as if you could reach out and touch them. However, I am not sure that it deserved to win Best Picture that year, compared to other greats such as The Outsiders and Scarface that were not even nominated. The cinematography, sound mixing, and soundtrack are by far its greatest weaknesses, and at times are very distracting.The film is saved by the fact that it has an amazing script and actresses that dedicated themselves to it, I'm just not sure it deserves the many award it got.
