Jeffrey M (jp) wrote: Whitey: United States of America V. James J. Bulger serves as both a fascinating crime story and a powerful indictment against the criminal justice system. It's a documentary that gives a detailed account of the Bulger trial, the sensationalism of the man, and the unnerving relationship he had with senior federal and local officials.Director Joe Berlinger weaves an intricate tale in Whitey, starting out examining the unimaginable destruction left in the wake of Whitey's actions, namely the countless victims still waiting for closure. To his credit, Berlinger doesn't stop there. Instead, he examines the central question at issue in the trial, and really the primary point of contention, was he an FBI informant or not? Whitey's defense team presents compelling evidence that it wasn't Whitey that was the informant, but rather key FBI officials, who fed Whitey information and tip offs in exchange for cash. Unbeknownst to Whitey, they also used his name to sign off on wiretaps and search warrants, building a case against the local Italian mob, under the guise of his supposed corroboration. Berlinger does an excellent job weaving the tale together with interviews of lawyers, investigators, victims, and courtroom audio. We are exposed to the different perspectives, while never sacrificing the heat of the story, those whose lives are inextricably linked in the web of corruption. The film certainly leans a certain direction, yet doesn't come across as manipulative, but rather objective and penetrating. In the end, it's an engrossing story that will astound you with its implications.4/5 Stars

That's pretty much everything you need to know about Takashi Miike, right there. Having said that, Zebraman is nowhere near a weird as the creator of Gozu and Ichi the Killer's reputation would suggest. That's for the best, though, if you ask me. I've found that legendary perversity to be an obstacle to Miike's formidable directing talents rather than an asset. Instead, what we have here is a quirky but rather straightforward love letter to the tokusatsu series (that's "Power Rangers" to us ignorant Americans) Shinichi's pretty much a loser: his family doesn't like him, he sucks at his teaching job, and he's basically miserable. His one release is tokusatsu shows, especially a failed, forgotten series from his childhood called "Zebraman." In fact, Shinichi loves Zebraman so much that he's cobbled together a homemade copy of his costume. Schinichi's obsession with costumes heroes made for what are easily the most entertaining moments of the film, or at least the funniest. The "vintage" Zebraman clips are absolutely perfect in their shoddiness, while a contemporary clip of a crossing-guard hero battling the girl from The Ring (I kid you not) is one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. Don't let this give you the impression that Zebraman is all spandex and rubber suits, though. While it's true that Shinichi does take to the streets and uncover some extraterrestrial evil as his new alter-ego, Miike spends most of the movie focusing on the painfully awkward side of our hero's existence. To an extent, this is quite a refreshing change of pace from most over-intense superhero films, and there's no question that Sho Aikawa handles the many subtle moments better than a guy in a Zebra helmet ever should. In fact, the bulk of the cast make great work of the material, especially Atsuro Watabe's way-cooler-than-you secret agent. Still, there's no question that a good 20 minutes could have been shaved off the running time without hurting anything. A disturbing number of subplots fail to do anywhere (what the heck was up with the green baby?!?!?), which makes the film's focus on them rather than action all the more frustrating. What's more the potentially interesting revelation (SPOILER ALERT!) that the Zebraman scripts actually predicted the events currently happening is both underused and kind of senseless (So, this show was going to spend ten days watching Zebraman in the woods trying to fly? No WONDER it was canceled!) Oh, and then there's the special effects. While the obviously low budget works well for the small scale moments, giving Zebraman's early skirmishes a warped scene of reality, it really hurts the climax. The deliberately "corny" effects of the retro clips should NOT look cooler than the "serious" CGI aliens. Being a fan of retro Japanese SciFi (like myself) will go a long way to increace your enjoyment of this movie, and even then the convoluted plot and wonky pacing hurt. That's not to say that Zebraman isn't worth a look, only that it's not as good as it could have been.

bob w (fr) wrote: a serious romantic comedy? grant is grant but the overriding theme of corporate avarice is foremost throught the film. as a strict comedy it is flat and unfunny, but as a subtle peek at the u.s. war machinery is is a decent film. however, grant is too stoggy and awkward, e.g., considering his star power drags the movie down.
