(it) wrote: It was interesting when they were talking about Wikileaks and how you don't need to deliver news to the newspaper for distribution anymore, you can just dump it on the internet for everyone to see, and how the Times is dealing with that. Some of the other parts were a little boring though.
(ag) wrote: A unique gem in a genre of tired formulaic melodramas, 'Middle of Nowhere' attempts and mostly accomplishes something that many movies cannot - it humanizes a struggle most people can't identify with. A refreshing look at the little covered topic of being married to someone in prison, 'Middle of Nowhere' sets the audience as both judge and friend of the main character, Ruby. She is not a heroine in the traditional sense, and in many ways she is her own worst enemy. Her steadfast loyalty to a husband who isn't clearly loyal is at times infuriating. As the movie unfolds, we see that Ruby's circumstance is largely of her own making. Consequently, many times it's hard to feel sympathy for her. Yet, by the end, I found myself rooting for her. This movie was powerful because it makes the audience wrestle with blame, guilt, sympathy, and compassion. Although most of the audience have never or will never be in the main character's position, it's hard not to identify a moment in our own life when we were stuck in something we weren't supposed to be in and couldn't see the forest for the trees until we came out of it. This movie is about the journey out. The cinematography is really great, the soundtrack is ethereal and fantastic. My only complaint was that some of the director's choices for lingering shots dragged a bit too long, and put the movie at risk for coming across as pretentious. Still it wasn't enough to take away from the impact Ruby's story had on me. It's a story that needs to be told, and heard.

(jp) wrote: Understand this is a "B-Movie Drama Shot on Ski Slopes" and you may come away surprised by the serious plot devices, the powerful score, and passable acting. 22% critics rating? There are some cheesy moments, but that's a terrible gauge for what this film accomplished considering all the underlying factors.

(it) wrote: Writer/Artist/Filmmaker Jean Cocteau's first film, The Blood Of a Poet, is structured into four episodes. The first begins with a smokestack collapsing that shifts to a young poet sketching faces. He sees that the mouth of the sketch is moving and wipes it off with his hand; the mouth then attaches itself to his palm. He eventually transfers the mouth to a statue in his room. In the second episode, the statue tells the poet to enter a mirror on the wall. He falls into the darkness of the mirror's interior and finds himself in the Hotel de Folies-Dramatiques. The poet crawls through the hallway and looks into the keyholes of the rooms where he sees various bizarre situations. When he reaches the end of the hallway, someone's arm sticks out and hands him a gun which he uses to shoot himself. The poet returns to his room back through the mirror and smashes the statue; he then becomes a statue himself in a courtyard. In the third episode, a group of boys are engaged in a snow fight in the courtyard. The statue is destroyed and one boy is left dead after being hit with a snowball. In the final episode, the courtyard is revealed to be a stage where a young woman and the poet play cards next to the boy's body on the ground. The woman tells the poet that he has lost without the Ace; he then takes the card from the boy's jacket. The boy's guardian angel appears coming down the steps and covers him. After absorbing the boy's body the guardian angel takes the Ace from the poet and leaves back up the steps; the poet then shoots himself in the head and the audience applauds. The woman walks away from the table and reveals that she is the statue; the film then ends with the final collapse of the tall smokestack.Jean Cocteau's The Blood Of the Poet is a film inspired by the myth of Orpheus as well as details from the director's own life. It is one of the great experiments in cinema. It is a fascinating, yet confusing at times look at the struggle of creating art. It doesn't have a conventional story line yet it is filled with wonderful dreamlike imagery. It contains many visual metaphors and symbols that draw on many recognizable ideas, myths, and themes such as death resurrection. Cocteau's techniques are impressive using slow motion, trick photography, and jump cuts to create many memorable images. It is a historically important and groundbreaking piece of surrealist cinema that can be compared to any of Luis Bunuel's best work, and it is only a glimpse at the genius that was Jean Cocteau. This is a film I recommend to those curious in avant-garde filmmaking as well as those interested in the work of Cocteau. 9/10

(au) wrote: This is one of the best ensemble casts of all time. The conversations between Oldman and Slater and then Walken and Hopper's characters are two of my favorite pieces of dialogue in movie history. Great small roles out of James Gandolfini and Brad Pitt and this is definetly the best work of Patricia Arquette and Michael Rapaport's career. An underrated masterpiece in my opinion.
