The story takes place in a alternate postwar period, in 1996, where Japan is divided. Hokkaido is ruled by the "Union" while Honshu and other southern islands are under US authority. A tall tower was built on Hokkaido, which could even be seen from Tokyo. In the summer of 1996, three middle-school students make a promise that they'll cross the border with a self-constructed plane and unravel the tower's secret, but their project was abandoned after the girl, Sayuri Sawatari, became mysteriously ill and transferred to Tokyo. Years later on the brink of another war Hiroki Fujisawa finds out that Sayuri had been in coma since then, and he asks Takuya Shirakawa to help him finding a way to wake her up.

Brandon H (es) wrote: I'm a fan of Mamet's language, but man, it just feels so stilted in so many of his films, doesn't it? Glengarry is the only film of his that comes to mind where there isn't an overly rhythmic focus on the dialogue. Glengarry lets the dialogue flow naturally, and the rhythm forms as it would form naturally in a heated debate. But "Homicide," just like "Heist" and "Edmond" and "The Spanish Prisoner," etc., all feel rigid and cold sometimes, to some degree. We see straight through to the script, breaking the suspension of disbelief on a regular basis. But pushing aside the occasionally unnatural dialogue, the film overall does keep me immersed. His struggle to find a balance between his two cases creates for unusual tension breaks, but Mamet manages to keep us interested in both plot lines. This way we don't feel exhausted or resentful or bored when the plot changes directions. Also, his personal growth as a Jew is actually fairly interesting to watch unfold, although we sense the whole way there's something not quite right about his journey. This suspicion makes the journey darkly engaging to watch; Mamet hints at this darkness with subtle clues along the way, until finally the main character is in well over his head. In the end we discover our suspicions were right, and he's put himself in an awful place without realizing how fast he was falling. I'd say if you approach this film after watching many of other Mamet films, you won't be disappointed. It delivers suspense, smart lines, and good acting all the way around. I've yet to find a Mamet film that bores me. For that, I will keep renting his movies until I finish off the long list.

When yes some delusional people really do exist but government corruption is way more prevalent then most people think. At the very end of this long awful weird movie. weirdo peter talks about a few things which are true, the builderberg meetings which take place ever 4 years this a well known fact and depopulation, thats been written about by our current science czar john p holdren in the book ecoscience and a couple of other topics which he briefly mentions with some made up ones to are just fluff filler to add into the movie to cover up the truth by adding a load of crap ontop of the truth making it unappealing to look at. Government propaganda in movies has been around for centuries and is nothing new, the only thing similar between countries is the people of its country are for some reason never able to see through the guise to understand its propaganda. For example we can look at north korea and see their propaganda and say wow what a bunch of brainwashed idiots how could they fall for such simple deceptions, but when it comes to our own brainwashing people fail to believe that its happening to them, and historically its always been like that. Now in terms of the movie the actors did a good job but the plot and the storylines and the dialogue are awful too much rambling for too long with too much nonsense and insanity all mushed together. But I personally think its done just to establish a new made up criteria with no scientific evidence that crazy people are people that dont mindlessly trust government and although they can seem to be smart, like peter making a wide range of connections and showing that girl that bugs were in his teeth the movie eludes that see just becomes brainwashed within his delusions Even though she never had been diagnosed with a mental disorder herself eluding to what they want you to think is that paranoid government conspiracy can appear to be smart on the surface but really they are just crazy pyshcatic people who can brainwash some people into believing in their insane theories but if you do believe in the theories with them you will end up living like insane animals jumping at everything. When the truth is the government does alot of fucked up shit Tuskgee experiments where the government experimented on black men with brain eating syphilis , the gulf of tunkee where the government blew up one of their own ships and blamed it on a another country, JFK where the warren commission claimed a magic bullets hit Kennedy, and it just goes on and on and on. Ultra MLK in which bill clinton came out and aploigized for experimenting on people with the cia. These are all things if you are too stupid to have read about have no excuse today with the internet you can find this information has already come out and is admitted by the government already its not debatable its admitted. The excuse that you just didnt have time to find it out or read about it is now void because of the internet its only stupid and ignorance that allows corruption to flowerish and movies like this are made with the full intent to give you the predisposition that anyone who thinks critically of government is a paranoid moonbat tin foil hat wearing drugged out tweeker when that couldnt be further from the truth which is that must conspiracy theorist are smarter and more logically than the average dumbed down citizen. Also the who tin foil hat thing has been exposed as well, its call ELF weapons, just google DR robert Duncan and or watch the show brain invaders by jesse ventura and be prepared to enter the world of science fiction reality these weapons have existed for a long time and are now admitted to exist by the very developers like Robert Duncan once again proving the harsh reality that films like this are just propaganda.

Craig C (ru) wrote: Winner of a Special Award at the 1973 Cannes Film Festival, this well-intentioned French animated film has not aged well. Like Zardoz, released the same year, it reeks of the psychedelic drug culture while colliding with the era's New Wave of science fiction, Like Yellow Submarine, it's more a cultural artifact.
Alison O (nl) wrote: Hitchcock's final three films were Frenzy, Family Plot and this James Bond rip off that clocks up in excess of 2 hrs 20. Not one of the director's best, it nevertheless is worth a look if only for the late sixties cold war atmosphere. Reportedly one of the films the great man least enjoyed working on, this will never rank amongst his best work but even a substandard Hitchcock is better than most others can muster.

It's a falling star, make a wish"DVD Movie Review: Home Sweet HellDate Viewed: April 17 2015Directed By Anthony BurnsWritten By Carlo Allen, Tom Lavagnino and Ted ElrickStarring: Katherine Heigl, Patrick Wilson, Jordana Brewster, Jim Belushi, Kevin McKidd, Bryce Johnson, A.J. Buckley and Chi McBride.Katherine Heigl just kill your career now. You have a horrible TV show (State of Affairs), you made a lot of awful rom-coms (The Big Wedding, Life as We Know It and The Ugly Truth) and you have a terrible personality. Just when you think the trajectory of her career couldn't get any lower, now comes "Home Sweet Hell", a dark comedy in which a pitch-perfect housewife does stupid things after she finds out that her husband had an affair with his slutty co-worker. I can smell the stench of this film already. Everybody in "Home Sweet Hell" are horrible human beings. How can we root for anybody in this movie if every person turns into a mindless zombie. I hate to borrow a quote from David Spade but "Look children! It's a falling star, make a wish".Don Champagne (Patrick Wilson) and his wife, Mona (Heigl) are living the good life, they have a great house, two kids and a successful business. Mona wants to achieve a set of goals in this family, she wants to keep this house perfectly clean every week, she wants her husband to be a good businessman and she wants her children to go to college and to have a successful career. However, Don isn't too fond of her goals, they only have sex six times a year. Soon, Don has an affair with slutty co-worker, Dusty (Jordana Brewster) and she blackmails Don by telling him she's pregnant. Dusty threatens to tell his wife about their affair and she wants $25,000 to keep it all quiet. When Don admits to Mona about his affair with Dusty, Mona wants him to kill her. After they get rid of her, Mona cuts her into little pieces and it turns out that Dusty wasn't pregnant after all. They also find out that Dusty was working for a couple of thugs and Don goes to a strip-club to figure out who they are.An even bigger bloodbath is about to ensue when Mona goes into the trailer of one of the thugs and she kills him and a stripper with a samurai sword. As you can see, Don and Mona are complete idiots and they are bad of what they do. Even though the women in this movie are treated poorly, the men are even worse, all of them are full of scum. Playing against type here, Heigl gives another terrible performance as the overly, pitch-perfect bitch of a housewife and Patrick Wilson delivers a godawful performance as Don, Mona's obnoxious husband who does very bad things to himself and his marriage. Poor Jim Belushi, he is completely wasted here as Don's co-worker at the furniture store.Ugly and lifeless, the dark comedy "Home Sweet Hell" is another nail in the Katherine Heigl career coffin.
