Frances H (mx) wrote: A moving film on the nature of violence and its engendering desire for taking justice in one's own hands, this movie makes a good companion piece to Of Gods and Men, another excellent picture on the same theme. In the words of the great Mahatma, "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind." And as in The Lord of the Flies," what happens in the world of adults is mirrored in the world of children.

Robert H (es) wrote: While I wasn't quite sure what to expect, THE NIGHT LISTENER turned out to be a dark and unnerving psychological thriller. Robin Williams plays Gabriel Noone, a radio talk show host who tells deeply personal (but often fictionalized) stories. After separating from his companion (Bobby Cannavale), he is given an advance copy of a memoir by a 14-year boy that recounts a childhood filled with sexual abuse. He also carries on a long telephone relationship with the boy. However, when the boy's existence starts to come into question, he starts an investigation that ends up creating more questions than answering them. What immediately struck me about this film was the disquieting mood created by the score and cinematography. Some of my favorite thrillers, regardless of narrative merits, have been able to hold my interest due to the atmospheres they create, and this is no exception. Robin Williams gives a wonderfully understated, yet nuanced, performance that ranks among his better, darker dramatic roles. Bobby Cannavale also does an excellent job, despite his limited screen time. However, the revelation was Toni Colette as Donna Logand, Pete's (Rory Culkin) foster mother. Her portrayal of a blind woman who may have some mental issues was effectively creepy and really got under my skin. Story-wise, I was almost gripped from start to finish. The first two-thirds were as good as any thriller I've seen recently, but the ending was a bit of a letdown in my opinion. The biggest theme tackled is about when the line between truth and fiction is blurred. This is first exemplified by the character of Gabriel Noone, who admittedly mines his own personal life for stories while leaving out all but the "shiny bits." This doesn't seem to bother him, except when he encounters it in another human being. It was an interesting topic for a movie, but I don't think that the film really delves into it the way it deserved. Overall, you end up with a decent psychological thriller that's well-acted but, at an anemic 80 minutes, could have been beefed up a little more.

Peter P (ag) wrote: A really funny film, Bill Murray is one of my favorite actors, and he is totally at the top of his game in this movie. The story is funny and tight, and the whole cast works well together, and it was cool to see Jason Robards as the police chief. Geena Davis was also pretty in this, so that is a bonus.

Daniel K (jp) wrote: 2.5: I really do prefer watching films that I know virtually nothing about beforehand. All I knew about Inside Daisy Clover was that it starred Natalie Wood, but happily it was also a film about the film industry, which are almost always fascinating for me. Even better, the film industry depicted here is that of the 1930's when the studio system was firmly in place. The first couple acts were great, but I gradually grew to feel less and less sympathetic towards Wood's character. Her life really didn't seem all that bad. The ending was also an immense disapointment as well. Despite the building blowing up on a beach, this was no Kiss Me Deadly. The music was sufficent, but not amazing. Redford was a bit stiff. Plummer was great, although perhaps a bit too pretty/handsome for a studio executive from the era. Warner, Zanuck, Goldwyn, Selznick, Mayer, Fox, Thalberg, Cohn, etc did not look like this.

Timothy M (kr) wrote: Typical, but engaging stuff from DeMille. It's as blunt as blunt can be, and laughably preachy - the wicked atheists are made to look right fools in front of the righteous and devout - but it is spectacular, and visually inventive. It's more grandiose than a film about juvenile delinquents has any right to be, but there's something amusing about the way that DeMille just bombards the audience until they accept his point and move on. Good fun, either way.
