(ag) wrote: We watch history being replayed, and reclaimed, as the absurdist farce it perhaps always was. It strikes me as no great surprise these new Romanian films have found the foothold they have in the UK, so close are they in their comic register to our own Ealing comedies: as in 2007's "12:08 East of Bucharest" and last year's excellent "California Dreamin'", we're amused by the sight of petty, parochially-minded bureaucracy having rings run round it by plucky, spirited little guys... The risk is that the viewer might miss the irony intended by the title, and conclude life under Ceaucescu wasn't so bad after all: sure, this Romania seems a little disorganised, is evidently a stranger to interior design, and appears overly reliant on concrete as a construction tool, but individual mistakes and even acts of criminality don't necessarily lead here to anything other than something to tell the grandchildren. Mungiu and his co-directors do, however, find plenty of images that somehow speak for the whole: a merry-go-round that can't be shut down because the operator's enjoying the ride himself; a hard-faced Party committee getting in a terrible tangle over the name Valery Giscard d'Estaing; a pig roaming a living room. For a portmanteau, the quality control's pretty good, too: individual episodes range from the very sharp to the merely watchable. If the fowl-play travails of "Legend of the Chicken Driver" seem to have lost something in translation, even that can be reinterpreted as "Whisky Galore!" with eggs.

(nl) wrote: I have a feeling this will be a stoner classic in years to come. Mishima does the best he can with the script, but the cartoon-like special effects are laughable (perhaps that, in some way, is the point, but it made the final 20 minutes of this flick hard to watch).
(kr) wrote: Average action film decent enough performances from Snipes and Payne. Predictable and enjoyable. Nothing more to say.
(fr) wrote: Giulietta Masina returns in a rather harsher role as a prostitute who wants to find love and settle down. Masina steals the screen again, initially unlikeable but rather vulnerable and at times comically awkward. There is a fatalistic feel to this story, it is beautifully filmed with the odd surreal touches, and the scene with Cabiria and the stage hypnotist are as beautiful and moving as anything I've seen on screen. Another ultimately depressing film but beautifully written, filmed and acted. Stunning.
(br) wrote: Atmospheric music drama, not a musical. What more can you say about a movie where Priscilla Lane's character is named Character.
(es) wrote: Boring and not very well done noir thriller with a gorgeous production design. A film like this really relies heavily on its characters, most particularly its lead, and this film forgot to include them. Everyone's motives are murky but it never feels like much of a mystery. A big part of this is the miscasting of John Cusack as the lead. I mean I like the guy, but he just isn't right for the role. A role like this requires a certain amount of gleeful duplicity, and Cusack just seems too much a straight shooter to be believable as such a crooked character. He does have a suitable air of detachment about him but it tends to make him seem unconnected to the plot rather than secretive. He also never feels in danger due to ridiculously lethal combat skills for a spy. He kills three separate Japanese soldiers on two separate occasions while they're carefully watching him with guns aimed. Both times with no consequences. The first time doesn't even make sense since it added nothing to the plot. In the end I didn't care about him or his story.Most of the other cast was good. Ken Watanabe was good as ever as the dangerous Japanese agent and Chow Yun-Fat as a triad gangster gives a decent performance that features perhaps too much charm and not enough threat. Aside from that there's very little to recommend about this film. The script is weak and the big reveal relies too much on an event that might shock the characters but is known by everyone watching the film. A better lead might have pulled it off, but as it is it's just a disappointment.
