Ryan K (es) wrote: This looks weird but it kind of looks awesome and epic vampire movie. THis looks like a more appropriate version of what the vampire should be like. Mosters and horrifying. Not glittering and romantic. I really want to see this.
Zoran S (fr) wrote: This is a highly eclectic and formally eccentric work. At first, it announces itself a documentary about the last weeks of the great Nicholas Ray but it's all obviously scripted. Then it sort of mutates into a "film" that Ray and Wenders are making together or rather keep trying to make. Throughout Wenders throws in peculiar Brechtian kinks that distance us from both the "documentary" and the "film." It's all very fascinating but one qualm (and it's a superficial one to be sure) is that it doesn't really tell you much about Nicholas Ray. It's more an essay about the nature of collaboration and artistic influences.
Eric H (es) wrote: Directed by Alfred Green, "Baby Face" is one of the more notorious dramas of the Pre Code era. Filled with sexual innuendos, a fairly erotic plot, many double entendres and some risqu camera work, the film stars Barbara Stanwyck as the aptly named Lily Powers, a plucky young woman who lives with her father in a smoky industrial town.From the onset it is established that Lily's reality is grim, grim, grim. She lives in a cramped apartment, spends most of her time in her father's dingy speakeasy, has but one friend (an Black maidservant) and is routinely prostituted by her father to local men. When her father dies, Lily thus sets about trying to change her life. She leaves her town and heads for New York City. Here she intends to get rich by marrying a wealthy banker. The film then watches as Lily flirts, sleeps with and cons a series of men, most of whom are multimillionaires or in positions of power. Her actions are guided by Friedrich Nietzsche, the famous German philosopher whose teachings are taught to Lily by an elderly man named Adolf. Modern, casual film-watchers won't have much use for "Baby Face", but it's an interesting film when put in historical context. Before Hollywood began implementing codes, censures and strictures, a number of somewhat daring films were made. These featured Blacks in fairly strong roles (afterwards, miscegenation laws were essentially used to rationalise kicking blacks off screen) and offered frank treatments of sex, sexism, violence and abuse. In "Baby Face's" case, we have the tale of a sexually abused young woman who understandably grows to hate men, people and perhaps the world itself. This persecution then fuels Lily's perceived right to persecute others. Believing exploitation to be "natural", a "fundamental part of reality", she sleeps with and scams everybody, until she wins the chance to essentially inherit a mega-bank. Lily abruptly turns this prize down, however, having learnt the value of true love, kindness and so forth. Written during The Great Depression, the film's very much a parable about nihilistic, soulless social systems, and a plea for ethics and moral, kinder social relationships. A true masterpiece.

Passengers evacuating an airliner to a transport plane flying below them.....rescuers zip lining from one plane to another....COME ON !!!! . Not only was the plot bad the actors (if you can call them that) were far below the standards of students in a high school play. The director and screen writers should be shot and the cast needs to explore other career choices..lets say in the fast food industry! I'd give it a star rating , but there are no minus stars. Oh...by the way...What true story was this based on?
