The Landowner's Daughter torrent reviews
(fr) wrote: Battle For Brooklyn is a sweeping chronicle of the highly divisive Atlantic Yards plan and one man's unyielding refusal to conform under mounting pressure. Filmmakers Galinsky and Hawley chronicle the narrative spanning nearly a decade, as the strife over what's best for the Brooklyn community unfurls. With desirous politicians focused on exploiting the neighborhood's potential to become a basketball court for the Nets, resident Daniel Goldstein's interminable endeavor to protect the land, and the manifold positions assumed by residents and reformers alike, the film emerges like a Greek tragedy. Although this particular story is set in Brooklyn, NY, the central theme is germane to everyone, everywhere: when large amounts of money are on the table anything can be bought, including your home right out from under you. Goldstein is indefatigable as he grapples with both the dubious techniques invented to diminish the relevancy and even existence of the community and his neighbors who may have been lured in with assurances of a better world to come. As the ground is excavated around him, posited to become a basketball-mall-sky scraping-supercenter, he and his family lobby for an equitable outcome while his neighbors slip out of sight and celebrities surface to champion both sides of the dispute. Notably, those who live in the area are opposed to the project, while those who reside far away rally for the demolition. Also pertinent is the story of the media and its undemanding adoption of the prefabricated packages handed to them by developers, while the local voice went largely unheard and/or unpublished. Battle For Brooklyn is as enthralling a film as it is an imperative message which merits ninety-three minutes of the viewers time. Goldstein's plight speaks an exemplar lesson in the preservation of community and the valor of both truth and follow through.

(kr) wrote: Great "Real Life" Action Hero Movie. Figures that the critics don't like it. I guess that's because it depicts the military/special forces in such a good light. I suppose if the plot were to uncover some corruption in the military the critics would have praised it. This movie is every bit as good as the sci fi action hero movies, if not even better. Highly recommend!

(jp) wrote: Shin'ya Tsukamoto stars as a camera man who witnesses a man's suicide in the subway tunnels and becomes driven to find out what drove him to it. He finds tunnels under the subway station that lead to an ancient city, where he finds a young naked woman chained to a wall. He takes her home with him, but cannot get her to speak or eat. He discovers that her only diet is blood, and soon he's killing women and bringing their blood home for her. Nothing at all is what it seems to be in this film. It was shot in 8 days on digital video between Shimizu's direction of "Ju-On: The Grudge" and it's American remake. I like it ... everything has a sense of terrible foreboding.

(br) wrote: A ferociously funny faux documentary with a generous and charitable message at its core--"Don't disrespect other's property" (as one little idiot writes on a chalkboard). One of the funniest films made, and as probing and insightful as ever.

(jp) wrote: I can tell this is a great movie, but unfortunately, I didn't see a clean copy. I need to see a clean version to properly admire the visuals. Like the later movies 'Algiers' and 'Casablanca', this is an extremely atmospheric depiction of Northern Africa under French colonial rule. And while the love story is old fashioned and dated, it is romantic as all heck with a really moving ending. My only real complaint is that there's a very confusing scene midway through the movie that I couldn't even comprehend after going back to review it again. It left me lost for quite a long time. Do yourself a huge favour and don't watch this on youtube - it's too good for that.
