(ag) wrote: On a desolate island in the Arctic circle, two men work at a meteorology station where they take measurements of radioactivity in the surrounding area. Sergei, is a rough, blue-collar man in his fifties who has been doing this type of work for years and takes it all very seriously while Pavel, his new colleague, is inexperienced which causes tension between the two men. One day Pavel receives a message from head quarters with some terrible news directly relating to Sergei. Pavel is scared to tell Sergei the news because of their stringent relationship, which leads to Pavel digging himself into a deeper whole. How I Ended This Summer is a gorgeously photographed film, bordering on meditative, which really takes advantage of its setting to relate this feeling of isolation among the characters. This is a film with a very very basic plot which chooses to explore the tension of these characters and their emotional fragility. Billed as a Thriller, this is a very slow paced film that uses every visual and sound to create it's atmosphere. Pavel's intentions when holding the news from Sergei are never truly revealed but I believe it's not out of selfishness or spite but rather he was just looking for the right time that never came. Everything that happens to him is by his own making and as much as I love the atmospheric, 'less is more' style, I do wish we had a little more concrete reasoning as to why Pavel does not tell Sergei from the beginning. Even still, the film examines these two characters fragility in very different ways with a very strong ending that could have gone a much more "exciting" but ultimately unsatisfying way. One way I would describe this film is that it almost feels like the type of film that Tarkovsky would make if he was making a Thriller. This would definitely make a good companion piece with Hans Petter Moland' Zero Kelvin.

(us) wrote: Another great documentary about a largely flawed artist, whose work is surprisingly diverse and creative in the face of the various setbacks he's had thrown his way or even brought upon himself.A great little film and well worth tracking down.

(fr) wrote: fun interesting little movie. kinda nerdy. Confronts the balance a parent has to have between pushing there child and not spoiling their youth. Nothing to dislike about this movie, very much a crow pleaser.
(au) wrote: Shamefully missing from DVD! Great buddy film -- and totally "take no prisoners" in its political incorrectness. Arkin plays a Mexican American named "Bean" fer chrissakes!
(nl) wrote: The US released version has some great shootouts but is mostly mediocre as far as spaghetti westerns go. It's still a fairly enjoyable film. Haven't seen the original version, so cannot make the comparison. At least the phenomenal Morricone score still works beautifully.
(ru) wrote: Known as one of the best projects the Wayan brothers have ever produced, Scary Movie is a very loose parody of horror films such as Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer, along with films like The Matrix getting thrown in to get made fun of as well. Being a great film to watch with your friends, it's all crude humor added up with violence for about 90 minutes. It's nothing great, and it's nothing even remembering. It's a fun parody of films that all were well received as cult classics.
