The Margin torrent reviews

Walter M (ca) wrote: In "Alps," a young tennis player is gravely injured in an auto accident and is given some hope for making it. In the ambulance, she is asked who her favorite American actor is. In a meeting in a gymnasium being presided over by Mont Blanc(Aris Servetalis), a gymnast(Ariane Labed) tries to call dibs on substituting for the tennis player but Mountbatten(Johnny Vekris), her coach, in no uncertain terms, feels she is not even ready for pop music in her routine. In the meantime, Monte Rosa(Aggeliki Papoulia), a nurse at the hospital, looks in on her. Throuhgout, "Alps" does a neat job of keeping the viewer off-balance. At first, I thought something very sinister was going on due to having watched too many episodes of "The Avengers" when I was growing up but it turns out the cell's well-intentioned with their allowing mourning family members to work through their grief through them. That does not mean that there are not dangers for the characters in this movie, especially considering the extreme emotions in play. The question about the actors is rather odd at first. One could argue that it is about the kind of performance the customers want; natural, method or scenery chewing?(Heaven help anybody if they say Nicolas Cage.) Or could it be about American culture overwhelming all others? Therefore, the substitutes could be working on developing their own native culture with no other creative outlet in Greece. But at least considering "Alps" and excellent recent Greek movies like "Dogtooth" and "Attenberg," there is certainly a national cinema there to keep an eye out for.

Mikael K (br) wrote: Gabe Ibez offers a stylish if slightly familiar psychological thriller about a mother whose son disappears on a ferry. Elena Anaya is wonderful as the mother and Ibez has loaded his scenes with melancholy and intensity. The script is a little bit too simple, but the cinematic presentation gives it a lot of needed support. Not the cleverest thriller of all time, but quite effective nonetheless.

Allen G (mx) wrote: Whilst it evidently only tells one side of the story, and somewhat unfairly at times; Food Inc. is still a fascinating look at something which we know surprisingly little about given that we need it in order to survive: food. It's an activist film and so you simply have to navigate through the bias and come to your own conclusion as to how much of what is being said, should be listened to. For me, it was a mixed bag in this case but, for the most part, Food Inc. lived up to its expectations. It's well-paced and quite insightful, with a wide range of interviews and plenty of horror stories, which should certainly make you feel at least a little uneasy about your next hamburger. The movie is weaker when it comes to its solutions though as we are told to jump on the organic bandwagon because it's our one true saviour and any attempt at nuance and real discussion disappears completely.Still- it's a shockumentary and a good one at that.

Brian S (fr) wrote: An Indonesian train-wreck that looks more like a series of 1980s hair metal videos strung together than it does like a movie. It does have an utterly stunning lead actress going for it, and it misses no opportunity to dress her in lingerie and re-enact the video for Warrant's "Cherry Pie," and that's the GOOD news about Dangerous Seductress. The actress playing The Evil Queen is matched in her incompetence as an actress only by the inept editing, incredibly lame special effects, and writing that appears to have been scraped from the bottom of someone's shoe after a stroll through a barnyard. Although I must admit that Evil Queen's incandescent nipples (yes, really) were a nice touch, the device is soon forgotten and we don't get nearly enough lightning bolts shooting from them.Just forget it. The most dangerous thing about this one is the possibility of irreversible brain damage caused by watching it all the way through.

John M (ru) wrote: Astounding. If you liked Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, you're going to like this film. Full of intrigue, brimming with wisdom, it is the Socratic method of filmmaking. An inspirational, intellectual masterpiece

Rotimer J (au) wrote: Intriguing enough, but a poor script with unlikeable characters and a few unforgivable clichs makes for a less than enjoyable experience.
