With a running time that is slightly longer than a double length episode, you are presented with a very solid and enjoyable storyline that keeps you interested all the way through. There is no sense of the story dragging and the return of one of their older foes is welcome, even though at times it does feel like it has been shoehorned in to give the story a little bit of action to counterpoint the more character driven thrust of the main plot. All the final season's cast return to reprise their roles and there is no hint of jadedness in their portrayals. All in all this is a fine movie and it makes a very good job of completing the final story arc

Sofia G (gb) wrote: The Madness of Starting Out in the Evening In a world of celebrity confessions and self-help books, there's hardly any place for an old, white male writer who wears a suit while working at home and goes to bed early. It's the struggle between the passion of an artist and a world that has moved on and left his craft behind, and the unstoppable and tricky business of aging and coming to terms with oneself that director Andrew Wagner explores through his most recent film, Starting Out in the Evening. The movie tells the heart-rending store of Leonard Schiller (Frank Langella), a seventy-something year old writer in his groping attempt to finish what could be the last novel of his now-forgotten, moderately-successful literary career. Until, of course, he meets Heather Wolfe (Lauren Ambrose), a young, ambitious and presumptuous graduate student who wishes to write her dissertation on him in hope of rescuing his work from obscurity and returning it to the bookstores, or so she says. Rather, Schiller's just her her ticket into New York's literary scene. Ironically enough, Heather might just be Schiller's ticket back into the world as an established writer. Wolfe's cynical attitude rudely clashes with Schiller's kind disposition as she attempts to weave herself into his life, and one can't help but to be averse to her artificial smile and snotty remarks. She uses her youth and audacity to prey on Schiller's vulnerability as she tries to seduce him with an acting performance that's as underdeveloped and crass as her character. Who is this girl who's so forcefully preying into Leonard's humdrum routine? Her character exposition is at best full of clichs, making Heather appear as no more than a teenage girl with a crush. One never gets to know the woman behind her frivolity. Instead, the film takes one through Leonard's daughter, Ariel (Lili Taylor), mid-life crisis as she deals with love's imperfections, an aging father, and womanhood's callings. At the heart of her troubles is Casey (Adrian Lester), an old boyfriend who's come back into her life after their relationship hit a wall years back. Old habits die hard though, and Casey's no exception as he keeps it "hot and light" with Ariel, unwilling to settle down and start a family as she wishes to. Every other scene one finds Leonard admonishing Ariel against her commitment-phobe of a boyfriend and how she should be steering her life and not holding on to an ideal. Sure, this gives insight into Leonard the father, the man behind his books, but regrettably Taylor's and Lester's relationship lacked substance and conviction. As Leonard so advices Heather in one occasion, "freedom isn't the choice the world encourages and one must wear a suit of armor to defend it," and this is exactly what the characters in the film strive for ? freedom to make choices, to live, to love. Yet, despite of the shortcomings of its plot with its lack of texture and depth, Starting Out in the Evening is delightfully salvaged by Langella's master performance. It's no wonder he embodies Schiller's character so perfectly when, as an artist himself, Langella knows how to be patient in order to produce one's best work. "An actor's life is waiting. And when you're not waiting, you have to sift through the things that come along. Sometimes you're quite lucky and a number of things come along all at once... and sometimes you go long, long times with very little to choose from. So you must take the thing that least bothers you so to speak," he confessed during an interview. Certainly, one will not be bother by his character in this movie. On the contrary, one will fall in love with Leonard's tenderness, twinge with annoyance at Wolfe's unscrupulous comments, but most importantly feel his very ache, deception and doubt. So what's an intelligent, literary movie to do in times like these? Well, to put it bluntly, it surely won't make a lot of money, but as one brilliant writer once said, "that's the madness of art."

Rainer K (jp) wrote: There they are - performing a sad song on sad occasion. The Comedian Harmonists giving their last concert - they're banned in Hitler's Germany because of anti-semitic reasons and still "the show must go on" and the audience cheers. Comedian Harmonists is another nice showcase of how Germany managed to dispel a substantial part of their artists and geniuses of the roaring 20s that made Berlin the city to be which ultimately led to cultural curiosity of the whole country. It's about the mother of all comedy a cappella groups - the eponymous Comedian Harmonists - and their songs. I must admit I didn't know much about them before the film - but where I come from their songs (or better their versions of these classic German folk song) are very well-known by the public. It starts off like a comedy musical and introduces the audience to a cast of great actors led by Ulrich Noelthen who plays a character a bit similar to Roberto Benigni's in Life is Beautiful and his counterpart Ben Becker who is just awesome. Beside the music the development of the other subplots is a bit rough and slow - There are some romances and a love triangle that almost splits the group and the one ever growing problem that ultimately leads to the group's downfall - the anti-semitism (three in the group are jews) that comes with the takeover of the Nazis. This theme which is arguably the main theme of the film doesn't become important until the second half of the film - and it's the more serious part of the film that appealed even more to me. Such a nice mix of music, comedy and drama is always appreciated by me and I connive the narrative flaws and the shaky structure for good after I've seen this last concert.

This was the first one that started to get great hype and was supposed to be a big deal for John Woo's American debut but I must say that I never liked this movie or got into it.

Eric R (kr) wrote: If you've read my reviews for "Puppet Master: The Legacy" and "Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2" then you are aware that I DESPISE when filmmakers utilize shit tons of stock footage of other films to pad their pieced together monstrosities to feature length. Of all the stock footage filled films I have seen none is more guilty than "Deadline Auto Theft" which is only made up of 10 measly minutes of newly shot footage with the entire rest of the feature being made up of stock footage of 1974 chase classic "Gone in 60 Seconds".Car enthusiast / daredevil turned filmmakers H.B. Halicki got the notion while filming his second full length feature "The Junkman" that he would go film 10 minutes of new chase footage with his extra time and then splice on the original "Gone in 60 Seconds" to pad it out. I don't mean to speak ill of the dead (Halicki died tragically while filming "Gone in 60 Seconds 2") but this is the biggest display of deception I have EVER seen by a filmmaker, including such stock footage kings as Roger Corman and Ulli Lommel. The worst is that the 70s style of "Gone in 60 Seconds" completely goes against the 80s style of the first 10 minutes. It's like editing apples and carpet together!The new footage does portray impress car stunt work and chase sequences but for the fact it's ONLY ten minutes long truly pisses me off. I mean what a rip-off! If I wanted to watch "Gone in 60 Seconds" then I would have popped that film in instead! I also laugh that the DVD box artwork proudly proclaims this is "The third in the original 'Gone in 60 Seconds' trilogy". I ask thee WHAT FUCKING TRILOGY? According to Halicki's widow who provides an introduction to the 'film', "The Junkman" is the second in the trilogy and "Deadline Auto Theft" being the third. Trilogy? BULLSHIT. Even more strange is Halicki's unfinished sequel "Gone in 60 Seconds 2" is included in a double feature DVD with "Deadline Auto Theft." Would that have made "Gone in 60 Seconds 2" the fourth in the series? HA!Halicki was deceptive on how me made "Deadline Auto Theft" and his widow continues to deceive audiences by calling this the third in a non-existent trilogy. They should have included the extra 10 minutes of footage filmed for "Deadline Auto Theft" and the 30 minutes of footage from the unfinished "Gone in 60 Seconds 2" as a bonus on the DVD release of "Gone in 60 Seconds". But why do that when they can screw more money out of fans?
