(kr) wrote: This is probably the best Resident Evil movie ever made. The animation is really good for a direct to video production spinoff of a video game and the writing is mostly very solid and the story actually kind of smart at times. That said its strictly for fans of the games as those who have never played any will likely be lost and it does have the feel of a video game cutscene with no gameplay. Still it serves its audience well enough even if its too narrowly focused

(es) wrote: Novelist Elmore Leonard's writing is always sharp with snappy dialogue and well drawn characters. His stories are so descriptive that he's practically already written the script, making his books easy to adapt to the screen. This was one that had all the ingredients for being another successful transfer from page to screen, but for the fact that it's mediocre and lifeless. Wayne Colson (Thomas Jane) and his estranged wife Carmen (Diane Lane) are placed in the Federal Witness Protection program after witnessing an extortion scheme go wrong. Under the protection of the F.B.I isnt enough though, when experienced hit-man Armand "Blackbird" Degas (Mickey Rourke) and psychopathic young upstart killer Richie Nix (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) are determined to track them down. Notable successful adaptations of Leonard's novels have been Steven Soderbergh's "Out of Sight", Barry Sonnenfeld's "Get Shorty" and Quentin Tarantino's "Jackie Brown" but this actually achieves something that none of them managed to do and something thats not easy to do either... making Elmore Leonard's writing seem dull. This is devoid of any excitement at all. They have taken any form of suspense out and made a slow, lethargic excuse for a thriller. Rourke (as usual) is great in his brooding role and Gordon-Levitt adds some edge to the film as his pyschotic sidekick - roles that were originally intended for Robert DeNiro and Quentin Tarantino - but "Shakespeare in Love" director John Madden gets it all wrong. His treatment is flat, but I'm assuming that the fact the screenplay went through uncredited rewrites and the film itself was held back from release due to extensive cuts (Johnny Knoxville playing a crazy sheriff being a major one) that the whole troubled production has not been kind to its director. It all shows in the end result. If it wasn't for Rourke and Gordon-Levitt, this would be a complete waste of time. A wasted opportunity and an example of how a good story can be wasted in the wrong hands.

(fr) wrote: The first thing Powell and Pressburger fans tend to note is the intelligence of the script, and the lush cinematography of Powell's Cinematographer, Jack Cardiff. I think what's most moving about Black Narcissus specifically, though, is the central theme of the unexpected visit of iterations of yourself that you'd sooner forget. It's the iteration of a self that was much more vulnerable, naive, and hopeful for the ambiguity of the future. The Nuns of the newly appointed St. Faith, a convent established in an old Indian brothel placed high in the Himalayas, become all too entranced by the ecstasy of the environment around them: high in altitude, and ancient. It's both of these things that first distract the nuns from their everyday tasks, before sinking into a deeply existential crisis that have them question their oneness with God, even though the very thought is never outwardly spoken. The most dramatic example, of course, is Sister Ruth (in a furious performance delivered by Kathleen Byron) whose transformation from a troubled nun into a bitter, hyper-sexual and murderous woman underline the nature of the work of God: suppression. Suppression of the past, suppression of desire, and suppression of sex. It reminds us that our facades can only hold out for so long until our real selves force their way out of isolation, destroying the image we try to make of ourselves and revealing our darkest secrets. It might be easy to liken the actions of these nuns to the English colonies in India; attempting to "whitewash" the cultural landscape with Catholicism in the film might be a less-than-subtle acknowledgement to the attempted assimilation of the Indian nation to English culture. Eventually, after so much suppression, the culture will push back against its oppressors to break down the facade, only to reveal what it was originally. This is a beautiful film with a deeply psychological and intelligent story. Deborah Kerr is brutal and cold as the Sister Superior Clodagh, all in the attempt to hold herself up as a serious woman of God, rather than a jilted twenty-something who buried her heartbreak under a lifetime of armor. This flick is practically perfect.
