Patrick L (it) wrote: "A fascinating and maddening documentary"Movie Review: The Unknown KnownDate Viewed: April 5 2014Directed By Errol Morris (The Fog of War and The Thin Blue Line)Starring: Donald Rumsfeld and Errol MorrisLegendary documentarian Errol Morris is back, this time he takes a look at former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. He was a key figure in the Iraq war and he worked with four Republican presidents. For those hoping to see Rumsfeld admit making mistakes will be disappointed by "The Unknown Known" but it is still a fascinating and maddening documentary.Viewers may also be disappointed with Errol Morris by not forcing him to give straight answers but just like Colonel Nathan R. Jessup in "A Few Good Men", Rumsfeld thinks that the American people can't handle the truth. Morris guides Rumsfeld through a series of controversial choices he made during his political career. The two talk about absorbing topics like Vietnam, Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq, 9/11, The Iraq War and Saddam Hussein.Errol Morris asks Rumsfeld, "Why are you obsessed with Iraq?", "Are you an obsessive person?". Rumsfeld says, "I'm not an obsessive person, I'm just cool and measured." Okay, I don't agree with Rumsfeld's policies but he grabbed my attention from beginning to end. No matter what political party you're from, he's compelling and we get a great look into his mindset.From "The Thin Blue Line", "Fast, Cheap & Out of Control" and "The Fog of War", "The Unknown Known" is another great documentary from Errol Morris. Footnote: Morris has dedicated this movie to Roger Ebert who passed away a year ago.

Nancy C (gb) wrote: 4/5 --- An untraditional love story of a woman who is marrying a man she thinks she's in love with until her attraction to another person (woman) leads her down an emotional complicated path of self-discovery.Well done with a small Swedish cast, a few faces I've seen before and the language just flows for me, sounding a lot like English. Story feels natural and has a lot of depth from all sides/POVs, realistic and dramatic. Recommended!

John G (kr) wrote: This is a slow moving, thought provoking and disturbing study of a woman who takes a night job at an old run down hospital. Oh, and there is a serial killer on the loose- of course. Hmmm, plenty of suspense but the interest is in the character development and working out what the hell is going on. Not bad.

Marcos J (it) wrote: I can not understand so many people with negative reviews.It is full of technical experts in dramaturgy and specialists and engineers of optics, film and sound.They forget the origins of cinema.Cinema or film is not just several photos taken in sequence to capture the world around us in various static squares.The cinematographic art is the extension of another art, that is confused with the own history of the humanity.Storytellers have existed since when our ancestors barely babbled some simple phonemes to signify what surrounded them beyond themselves.And this movie is basically this. Telling a story that happened sometime, somewhere, involving some people, regardless of whether it's real or fictional.And this story is told with a goal in mind other than just reporting facts that have occurred, real or not.And this goal is only achieved if people really care about the people and facts that have occurred in history, to the point of making them realize that this is applicable in their own lives.And to really care only for feelings expressed clearly to get us involved with this story, to laugh and cry together, to really feel the moments of the most blissful happiness and the most intense pain.And if you do not understand this, then stick with this stupid technical vision, because the real value few will really understand.

Georgina W (us) wrote: A often forgotten classic. Quality dialogue - "Rest in the arms of the dragon." and "Any man who would be a knight and follow a King, then follow me!" Nice to see Urien and other knights in the scenes too. Superb early perfomances by Gabriel Byrne, Patrick Stewart, Nigel Terry, Helen Mirren, Cherie Lunghi, Liam Neeson, Clive Swift and the late Nicol Williamson as Merlin (in real life Williamson and Mirren disliked each other!). In my opinion he plays the best on screen Merlin and well worth watching.

Brian B (kr) wrote: Ridley Scott is definitely one of the most hit or miss directors out there. "Blade Runner" and "Alien" are clearly his most praised works. "Gladiator" is definitely a classic and it has a pretty big fanbase. Also, some people argue that "Black Hawk Down" is even on the same level with "Apocalypse Now" and other classic war films (which by the way, I agree with that statement). However, he has also produced many hated films in the 2000's which have been called major disappointments by many. However, I still had hopes for this one because sci-fi tends to be his strongest genre. My anticipation definitely paid off and "The Martian" is clearly the best film he's made in a while and it proves that it might be his comeback.After an astronaut gets stranded on Mars after a storm hits his crewmates, he finds out that he must find a way to signal Earth that he is still alive and he has to figure out how to survive until then.There have been a lot of comparisons to last years "Interstellar". Unlike "Interstellar", this film doesn't contain any expositions and it gets right to the inciting incident. Despite this, we never get confused during the film as it doesn't expect us to have read the book. It explains things nicely and the plot flows along smoothly. "Interstellar" is also very heavy on science. However, this film doesn't focus too much on intricate science concepts and it is a film which can be enjoyed by more people on the first viewing. Also, it is much less bland and its pacing makes it an easier film to watch. So for this reason, I enjoyed it much more than "Interstellar".Also, I really enjoyed the visuals. The outside shots gave a great feel about how Mars looked and it made it look like a barren and desolate area. The shots from the ship looked very futuristic and it made the living quarters look super advanced and high tech. The atmosphere in the movie couldn't be much better and it really makes you feel that this film actually was filmed in space. It may not be anything new or groundbreaking in terms of space visuals but I usually don't ever mind that as long as the visuals are not underwhelming and this movies visuals are most certainly not underwhelming at all. They interested me greatly and they looked very realistic.Most of the screen time is focused on Matt Damon in this movie. I felt that he gave a great performance. It may not be anything Oscar-worthy but he still gave a realistic performance. He was the only actor I really noticed for the majority of the movie but that didn't bother me at all because he carried the movie very well by himself.Like most great movies, however, it isn't flawless. The pacing was a bit too slow for me at times and I felt that it could have been cut to 2 hours instead. I also felt that some scenes carried on longer than they had to. However, this didn't bother me all that much and I still enjoyed it a great deal.After "Gravity" and "Interstellar" grew very popular, it seems that the space survival genre is starting to become popular and we might see more films like this in the next several years. Hopefully, Ridley Scott learns off of what he did right in this movie so he can apply what he learned and make more great films in the future. I'm not completely sure if this is true but I think that this film might be his comeback into fame and he might make good films again as he once did. This is one of my favorite films so far this year and make sure you see it as soon as possible. You will not be disappointed at all.

Robert B (ca) wrote: Red Road (Andrea Arnold, 2006)On one hand, Red Road?a movie about a woman who becomes obsessed with revenge and goes undercover to deliver some vigilante justice?is a film you've seen a thousand times. On the other hand, while there isn't anything in here you haven't seen before, it's the way in which Andrea Arnold puts all the pieces together that make it feel like it is, at least in part, something you have never seen before. That is the tightrope makers of genre film walk, and Arnold?helped along in her pursuit by some very big names?walks it pretty well. The end result is not perfect by any means, but given a director working on her first feature and having a lot to measure up to, Red Road is better than it has any right to be.Plot: Jackie (Outcast's Kate Dickie) is a security guard whose entire job involves watching CCTV cameras trained on the Red Road housing estate in Glasgow. She is the quintessential character with no life outside her job, and eventually we realize why when she spies a familiar face on one of her cameras. This is someone who should not be where he is at the time he is, and Jackie soon becomes obsessed with getting revenge for a long-ago act that shattered her life.Those names I mentioned? This is the first of a series of three films (the second is Morag McKinnon's 2010 effort Donkeys) proposed by Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier (Antichrist) and featuring characters created by fellow Danes Lone Scherfig (Wilbur Wants to Kill Himself) and Anders Thomas Jensen (The Green Butchers). In America, that's kind of the equivalent of Steven Spielberg calling you up and saying ?hey, I've got this collection of characters who were created by Jon Jost and Ricardo Islas, and I want you and two of your buddies to write scripts around them.? How much pressure would you be feeling? Still, while Arnold is building tension, this movie works quite well. It is a quiet thriller, but it is a thriller nonetheless, and there is a great deal to be said for Arnold's script spending time to establish the parallel between Jackie becoming obsessed with her prey and getting less socially awkward around others. Where things fall apart is when the action begins in the third act. Obviously it would be difficult to talk about how things go down without spoiler alerts, but it felt to me like a bait-and-switch. Arnold has set us up to be expecting one kind of movie and we ended up getting another. That is not necessarily a bad thing, but it is likely to put some viewers off. With me, the jury is still out. I liked it, albeit cautiously, and I would recommend you take a look. Go into it without expectations and you may find yourself pleasantly surprised. **
