(jp) wrote: Another entry in Spike Lee's Chronicles of Brooklyn series, this is the tale of Flik Royale, a sullen boy from middle-class Atlanta who is sent to spend the summer in the Red Hook housing projects of Brooklyn with his fervently religious grandfather whom he has never met before.It's another coming-of-age fish out of water type story, and, while it's nothing all that new, it has some nice ideas and potential behind it. The main problems are the execution (I wasn't all that enamored by the hand-held digital camera work), and a late plot development that comes basically out of nowhere and pretty much derails tings. Also, the acting (especially by the young actors) is pretty bad. I get that Lee was going for a more naturalistic style with their performances, but unlike Gus Van Sant, he can't pull it off. The performance by Clarke Peters as the grandfather is actually pretty good though, and easily the strongest part of the movie.I did like the humor, and, as I said, some of the ideas, but ultimately this one falls pretty flat. I did enjoy the world they tried to build here though, and it was also pretty cool seeing Spike briefly bring back his Do The Right Thing character Mookie.All in all, a largely 'meh' kind of movie. It's got Lee's trademark flair all over it, just not the energy or memorability.

(mx) wrote: Excellent movie. Great work by Karishma Kapoor. No doubt she is a good actress. And specially the sond Tu Fiza Hai really good. Honestly i watch this movie because of Hrithik but i found Karishma much better then him.

(au) wrote: I really wanted to like this movie but it's all over the place so many sub plots that don't go anywhere script is mediocre performances are solid for the script they were given
(fr) wrote: Sophisticated realism of grim gritty urban desperation in Vietnam yet with the transcendental quality of poetry. Vivid and unflinching, this film resonates and it is not easily forgotten. Tony Leung's detached intensity is a constant brooding presence, and the emotional quality of the other characters bring this film to life. Essential cinema.

Admittedly the story didn't hold me as well as it could have and, from watching, I now understand why The Wolf Man was the superior picture of the "wolf-man" field... The picture as a whole didn't really push hard enough to make an ultra scary horror movie, instead it was a more gentle horror and for that I think it's not as memorable as other "wolf" movies!
