(mx) wrote: I saw the two movies back-to-back. Although the first one was believable to some extent (he had a unique but ridiculous killing fetish), this one was just plain stupid!Another crap-tacular time-waster!

(de) wrote: The stars are especially magical in William Wyler's light-hearted (though ultimately wistful) romantic comedy. Audrey Hepburn, in her first major role, is innocent and gamine-like (esp. after that haircut) as a princess touring Europe with too many bureaucratic duties to perform. Gregory Peck, less wooden than usual, is the American reporter who stumbles upon her when she makes a late-night break for freedom from her minders. The next day, the two (along with photographer Eddie Albert) spend the day visiting Roman tourist destinations (shot on location) in a carefree way but comically underscored by the efforts of the journalists to conceal their identities and true purpose (to get a scoop for their paper). Of course, Peck and Hepburn fall in love - but, after all is said and done, she is a princess and must return to her duties. Or must she? Dalton Trumbo came up with the story (while blacklisted as part of the Hollywood 10) and received his Oscar posthumously in the 1990s. Breezy and special, due primarily to Hepburn's charisma but Wyler also knew a thing or two about directing and hits the right emotional notes, expertly playing the audience. Lives up to its reputation.

(br) wrote: Really well told take on the life of Linda Lovelace. The way that the story is told shows different perspectives in a powerful way and the lead performances os Seyfried and Saarsgard are very strong. Recommended....
(br) wrote: It becomes clear rather early on that the film is hurtling towards a total collapse under its own weight. Unlike in lesser films, however, Van Dormael's well-intentioned screenplay manages to allow his opus to mostly sidestep such an implosion-thank goodness. What remains is a cinematographically beautiful, if coherence-deficient, hodgepodge that shares some of the better elements of "Inception," "Cloud Atlas," and "Sliding Doors," but succumbs to many of the regrettable issues that have plagued the collective works of Terrence Malick and Damon Lindelof. This is a film with ten story lines (one of which is explicitly fabricated and the factuality of the remainder purposefully made ambiguous) spread over four different periods. Thus, I would recommend it only for the most patient among us.
