(de) wrote: "White" works so well as a tragicomedy because it spends nearly half its run time pushing down its hero, the already slouching Karol Karol (Zbigniew Zamachowski). At the beginning of the film, Karol is on his way to court. He and his wife, Dominique (Julie Delpy), are getting a divorce. As he treads up the steps of the looming building, a bird shits on him. Perfect. In the courtroom, Dominique stares at him with disdain. She's a modern day Hitchcock blonde, giving our eyes plenty to feast on while exuding the emotional empathy of a block of ice. She wants to divorce Karol because they, after months of matrimony, have still not consummated their marriage. Dominique announces this with subtle glee. She seems to take pride in humiliating Karol. Poor, poor, poor Karol. After the divorce is finalized, he loses his money, his business, and his friends. All he has his two francs, and even those measly coins seem to want nothing to do with him. Even worse, he's an expatriate. He's a Pole in the jungle of France, and he doesn't know the language. Without Dominique, he's human garbage. In despair, he decides to take to begging. At the entrance of a metro, he blows on a comb wrapped in paper. It sounds like a kazoo, and the sight is so pathetic it's hard not to laugh mercilessly. Karol's luck takes an interesting turn upward when he meets a fellow Pole. The latter makes him a deal. If Karol kills someone, he'll help him get back to Poland. Desperate, Karol agrees and hides in a suitcase as means of transportation. Of course, the bag gets stolen and Karol is beaten by a group of thugs - but it doesn't seem to matter to our bitterly numbed hero. When he arrives in Poland, something in his mind snaps in two. Karol is still the same old slouchy, average-looking man, but as he gains back his dignity, he begins plotting a complex scheme of revenge. "White" is the second part of Krzysztof Kie?lowski's famed "Three Colors" trilogy, and considering "Blue" and "Red" are such emotional, intoxicating films, "White" is always looked down upon, as its anti-comedy attitude is so much less deeply felt. No matter, it's a black comedy that is differently shaded in comparison to "Brazil" and "Dr. Strangelove." It derives its humor less from satire and more from the misery of its leading characters. We laugh in pain as one bad thing after another stabs Karol's soul. But soon, we begin laughing at Karol's cleverness as he causes the downfall of nearly everyone who has ever done him wrong. The film flip flops from overwrought to melodramatic to silly to wise - comedy isn't something that Kie?lowski makes comfortably, and if this is his version, so be it. But while "White" surely doesn't have the strength of "Blue and "Red," but Kie?lowski's angled views on marriage, revenge, and wealth are slyly tuned. The colors of the trilogy famously honor the meanings behind the French flag. Red is liberty, white is equality, and blue is fraternity. "White" decides to portray its inner equality at its climax in the most brutal of ways. After Karol tries to make equality by acting upon revenge for months, he and Dominique finally become the same when she is imprisoned for his murder after he fakes his own demise. To the world, he's dead, she's a killer. They finally reach equality when their dignity and identity are taken from away from them. "White"'s cinematography is bright, snow-covered, and somewhat youthful; but underneath its floury look is a scathing tone that wants nothing more than to tear the idea of comedy apart and turn it into something nasty.
(gb) wrote: Directed by action maestro Walter Hill and with a lead role for Bill Paxton this sounds like a great combination. Alas this turns out to be a very by the numbers thriller that can't really muster up anything overly exciting.The film is quite similar to another thriller by the title of 'Judgment Night' plot wise. Some out of town blue collar guys get themselves into a difficult situation with a local gang or hoods. In this film the two men are trapped within an old vacant building whilst looking for some lost stolen treasure while in the other film some men are lost and trapped within a broken down dodgy neighbourhood.The problem with this film is the bad guys, a gang made up of stereotypical cliched black hoods that are covered in bling and can't speak proper English. The casting has big names admittedly and includes most well known black character actors but for some reason Hill chose to cast Ice-T and Ice Cube...oh dear. Needless to say the acting from this pair is dire and ruins any potential tension whenever they are on screen.Overall there isn't really much tension a tall frankly, not enough to make you care whether Paxton or Sadler (good guys) make it out alive or not. Its an old film now yes so you could excuse the predictable obligatory stuff that's included, you know Sadler is the unhinged guy that will crack through gold fever (the lost stolen items) and you know all the hoods will turn on each other. Ice Cube makes that rather obvious the moment he utters his first words.Reasonably entertaining but lacking real bite. The reason 'Judgment Night' was so cool was down to the great casting of Leary as the main bad guy, this similar film is missing that key casting. Paxton is limp, Sadler is better as a villain and action is AWOL. The ending is slightly unique in the fact it doesn't end as you would think, doesn't make it any better though.

(es) wrote: What separates this film from other smaller films is the terrific screenplay and the fantastic ensemble performances, especially Arkin's lifetime role! This film is clever, funny, emotionally powerful and inspiring!
(ag) wrote: I feel the need to watch this every several years. This whole series of movies are amazing to me. I loved them all and I loved how they helped prove that fantasy films can be Oscar contenders. This movie is a feast for the eyes and it still holds up after all this time. I can't recommend it enough.

(br) wrote: Barbara Streisand is a true gift. Her direction, performance, and vocal performance are all thrilling. The movie is a little gem with an intriguing plot (reminiscent of Twelfth Night) and outstanding performances from Mandy Patinkin and Amy Irving. Streisand's Yentl is a fire cracker of perseverance as her gender bending mixes love with a man and his soon to be wife...the period piece isn't boring at all, as I almost expected it to be. The songs are absolutely fantastic and there are just a lot of things about this movie to celebrate. The screenplay is excellent and the ending is marvelous, as Yentl sets out to make something of herself and serve her father well with pride. It's a thrilling movie. B+
