Chris is a once promising high school athlete whose life is turned upside down following a tragic accident. As he tries to maintain a normal life, he takes a job as a janitor at a bank, where he ultimately finds himself caught up in a planned heist.
An admired high school hockey player with a bright future foolishly takes a drive in the night with his girlfriend and two other friends with his headlights off with devastating results. The former athlete is left with a brain injury that prevents him from remembering many things for extended periods of time. To compensate, he keeps notes in a small notebook to aid him in remembering what he is to do. He also lives with a blind friend who aids him. Obviously, with the mental incapacitation, he is unable to have meaningful work. Thus he works as a night cleaning man in a bank. It is there he comes under the scrutiny of a gang planning to rob the bank. The leader befriends him and gets him involved with a young woman who further reels him in. After they get close and after reeling him in with his own failures, the bank plan unfolds. Confused but wanting to escape his current existence, he initially goes along with the scheme. After realizing he is being used, he attempts to stop the ...
[en] Highly regarded middle school hockey players spend the night driving with their girlfriend and two other friends with his headlight off, along with serious consequences. The former athlete was left with a brain injury that left him unable to remember things for a long time. To compensate, he kept a note on a small notebook to help him remember what he had to do. He is still living with a blind friend who helped him. Obviously, with mental inoperability, he can not function meaningfully. So he worked as a cleaner at night in the bank. It was there that he was under investigation of a gang planning to rob a bank. The leader beat him up and got him involved with a girl who brought him in again after they came close and after he had fallen out with his own failure. Wanting to escape his current existence, he goes along with the project. After realizing that he is being used, he tries to stop ...

great documentary about the great architect. it's a two-parter, totalling almost 3 hours, but well worth all the details of this amazing, creative, notorious man's life

People are never happy with where they are. You can always do more, even if you think you have what you want. It's never enough when you get there. For Wayne "Mad Dog" Dobie (Robert De Niro) the thought of a good retirement and health care as a police forensic photography, but he craves to be an artist. He craves to have a girl. He craves to be a tough man, the American ideal like John Wayne. One night he stops by a convenience store and in his own way saves Frank Milo (Bill Murray) from a robber. Frank wants to re-pay Mad Dog for saving him so he gives him a girl named Glory (Uma Thurman) for a week of... whatever. It's in that week that Mad Dog takes to first steps to be the person he wants to be, the problem is that when the weeks up Frank, who happens to be a mobster, wants Glory back to work off the rest of the tab she owes him. There's some weird casting in this. De Niro is the quiet, sky photographer while Bill Murray is the crime lord. It's different and it works. The pair play off each other in a way that is mesmerizing on screen. Bill Murray goes beyond his usual schtick and allows a peak at a dark demon that underlies his character who also spends time as a Mafia stand up comic. This film is one of Uma Thurman's greatest performances, balancing out a naive girl who has learned some street smarts since being under Franks thumb.Frank tells Mad Dog when they meet that he had the ability to fulfill his dreams and that's basically what the film shows in a warped sort of path. Mad Dog and Glory is a great movie with some classic performances that may have been forgotten over the years. It's a lost gem of the early 1990's.

A mediocre crime film that can only be recommended to the most die hard Charles Bronson fans.

One of my favorite styles of comedy, witty and chock full of one-liners. Chevy Chase has inherited a mansion from his late aunt. Different parties want the house even if they have to murder to get it. Chevy Chase uses his reporter skills to investigate the situation.

In the harsh, fishing town of Berlevag (almost the most Northern part of Norway, at 70.85 deg N), two things help make ppl survive the elements: the choir and the breakwaters. This is a documentary on the choir in this remote town. Given the town's location, the choir's list of songs include one about fillet girls working with their knifes in packing houses. Their music has been described as sounding like "like a very, very depressed Buena Vista Social Club", but this is perhaps a reflection of the sea-faring way they live by. In this documentary, you get to see candid side of the singers...from a former drug addict, to a self-confessed socialist-communist. The choir travels to Murmansk, Russia, to give a concert...with the factories, pollution and industrial wasteland they see on the way, they came to appreciate their town of Berlevag more. The last scene is memorable, for the choir of old men sings outdoors in the middle of what looks like a snow storm, braving the wind and sing while snow sticks to their eyebrows and icicles form on their glasses ... truly cool and crazy.

It's my dear beloved Ingrid at the peak of her career. "Saratoga Trunk" is intriging film, plot and performance wise. Ingrid Bergman is alway brilliant and once again pulled off a superb performance.
