And a fine, fine 'tache and accent to go with it from Spacey. I didn't know the story; the way Moran presents it is quirky, jumpy, and peculiar, which seems to be a very good mirror for Meek. Good film.

The dialogue is just tired and jolted, like the actors just forgot to try. The action always feels forced, and is never believable. So often, movies and hollywood get poker wrong, and measured by that shortcoming, this one surely fits the bill. The player who runs the big game, Callaway, could win a cool 3 million (the pot with his ace high flush, and the side bet against the mobster antagonist). Yet he folds the winning hand (to allow Kenny to repay his debt; but to Callaway, Kenny is essentially a stranger whose only connection to him is Kenny is a friend of a friend). He even gives Kenny his $100,000 stake money back! No self respecting big-time gambler would pass up a 3 million payday for a 1.4 one. Ridiculous! The movie gives a weak explanation that the hand was a setup for Callaway to get revenge on the mobster - his former boss. Yet he would have won the 1.5 million from the mobster either way. No need to pass up winning a 1.5 million pot with the best hand, at his own club, when no one would have raised a finger to stop it. Poker players are ruthless, and no self-respecting poker player would do this.

I had no problem with the reliance on flash backing... it was artfully done, the story would've been bland otherwise and the constant shifts of time lent a stronger coherency. Yea, a great drama about a "broad who would've ripped off her own fingernails before she let those fuckers knew she needed them." (Something like that).

Matthew S (kr) wrote: Though many of the themes and ideas Lars von Trier explores can be interpreted in various and often controversial, this remains a potent and magical film. This is evocative, disturbing, touching and an oddly inspirationally-based study of faith and the love it creates. Emily Watson is always brilliant, but this is her film. She owns it and her work will leave a shadow in your soul. Brilliant and a must see for any person who loves cinematic high art.

Vera W (fr) wrote: What makes a producer think that a film featuring conversations about past events makes good cinema? In Ship of Fools, we endure countless stories about past events that have little to do with the two people on camera at the moment. That gets to be a problem in a 165 minute drama. The film isn't without thematic meaning. There's plenty of meaning-- meaning delivered with an anvil. In fact, each character blatantly represents a flaw in humanity. One almost expects the ship's patrons to introduce each another by their metaphorical name. "Hi, I'm Mr. Racism. Nice to meet you, Male Sexism. I'll be in the cabin down below with the helpless but inspirational lower class." Fucking awful. Vivien Leigh acted most of her scenes by herself in this film, barely making eye contact with her scene partner. In fact, the one scene where she makes eye contact is when she's looking in the mirror. About half way through it, the director seems to run out of stage business. Sitting at a table drinking. Standing at the bar, drinking. Dancing. Laying in bed. Sitting on deck, drinking. Smoking cigars. Smoking cigarettes. I fully expected Simone to light a cigar-- that's the only bit of business on the checklist that she didn't manage to do. Eventually, the tired actors don't drink or even handle props. They appear to give up on any meaningful activity, and don't even bother with props. They merely sit at tables and speak their lines. Most laughably, at the end, we see the parade of dozens of characters that we've been cabined with during the film. One after another. They parade off the ship at the end in blatant curtain call fashion, and it proves an awful point-- there is no cohesive dramatic action in this film. It's a series of character vignettes, strung together like ports of call on a ship itinerary. But unfortunately the ship has no anchor.
