(kr) wrote: Drunkboat has been a long time coming. But at long last this poignant and moving film has finally seen the light of day. And while there are those who have obviously already had their say with this indie flick, one can't help but wonder if those critics were watching the same movie. Drunkboat is one of the year's top indie flicks. It has proven with its story and the acting of stars John Goodman and John Malkovich that indie flicks can be and are just as enjoyable and noteworthy as any film released by the major studios.The story behind this movie centers on Mort Gleason (John Malkovich). Mort is a recovering alcoholic who is trying to get his life back on track. The thing of it is that he still faces adversity as neither his (seeming) sister believes in him at first. Nor does her son, Abe (Jacob Zachar). Abe is a typical teenage boy. He thinks he knows everything. And thanks to Abe's plot to buy a boat from the unscrupulous Mr. Fletcher (John Goodman), Abe almost loses his way as he attempts to recover from his past. This is where things get just a tiny bit dicey. One can't help but scratch one's head in bewilderment at Abe's plan. Abe could have done any number of plans. But buying a boat just seems odd. But perhaps that could have been part of his character. Abe was just a teenager. So he was just doing something dumb and thoughtless like any other teenager. It doesn't have to make sense, as little of what the teenage mind does makes much sense. So keeping this in mind, those critics who have panned the movie for this quirkiness would be well served to go back and watch it again. Perhaps understanding this would give said critics a different view of things.The movie's central plot is really underrated. It obviously hasn't gotten the credit which it deserves. Malkovich's portrayal of mort is expert to say the least. It's his acting that anchors (no pun intended) this story. The irony is that while it's his acting that anchors the movie, John Goodman is billed as one of the movie's stars. The reality is that as amazing an actor as Goodman is, he's more or less just a supporting actor to Malkovich. In his own right though, Goodman's acting is equally impressive. It gives Malkovich something off of which he can bounce his lines and character. The pair is seen together in one scene near the story's end. But that one scene is powerful in itself. Thanks to Mr. Fletcher tempting Mort with alcohol and Abe verbally abusing him, audiences see Mort at his weakest and most innocent moment. It makes him a fully sympathetic character for audiences. And it makes Mr. Fletcher that much more despicable of a human being. This scene is not one of those over the top moments either. It's just enough to keep audiences watching to see what will happen. And it will make the movie's final moments all the more moving. Drunkboat clocks in at just under two hours. In that time, Mort's attempt to get his life back on track will keep audiences watching without even once checking the time. Malkovich's portrayal of Mort will make any viewer want to cheer for him as he shows that he is really making an attempt to get his life right. The relationship that he builds with Abe makes the story even more powerful. While other critics have obviously had their say on this work, those who go into this movie with an open mind will hopefully see it for the moving story that it is and that it truly is just as good as any film made by any major studio. It's proof that even in the twenty-first century, indie flicks are just as valid as anything else that's out there.

(ca) wrote: Apologetically bad. There are moments where this is funny but its pacing and consistency is just terrible. It doesn't go over the top enough at all either. Gunner Hansen doesn't even look like he really wants to be in the film, rather he just seems like he wants to leave. Only for the very curious and fans of bad cinema.

(fr) wrote: To say this is a weird film is putting it mildly. Suzuki's avant-garde satire is one confusing ride. It manages to satire assassin stories, James bond and pop culture in general. The femme fatale archetype and the cold assassin are both parodied to interesting effect. You have an assassin who is more interested in cooking rice than having sex with oversexed wife and ridiculously hilarious scenes of carnage and destruction. A man on fire, running out of a screaming building is made hilarious rather than brutal. Butterflies adorn the walls of the femme fatale's home and the assassins are all obsessed with a meaningless ranking system. Goofy, bloody and near incomprehensible, Branded to Kill is a fun time and a very good film, one which I plan to re-watch at some point.

(fr) wrote: WHY ARE THERE BAD REVIEWS?! evidently the average movie watcher must not also be an avid reader. i thought this story was great and i'm super disappointed that it wasn't based on a book -- BECAUSE I WANNA READ IT! i did some research and there IS a book with a suspiciously similar story (Lila, Lila by Martin Suter), however I don't speak nor can I read German so that won't be happening any time soon :( but back to the movie. I think if you love reading or writing or just words in general, you would enjoy this film. Bradley Cooper's not bad to look at either.
(jp) wrote: Absolutely excellent film with a very realistic story and series of events. It has the grit. The locations are varied and all real. Very smooth rough ride with little time wasted. Very well packed adventure with heroes on all sides and where the outcome is unpredictable. Well done action. Good acting work. Better than any horror film with chills in all segments. We get to see all sides and root for them all. Except they are all killers, so I root for them because it's a film. In real life they should all be given a punch in the face. Allah akbar, praise the lord, que dieu soit avec les gens de bonne volont... et ne tuent pas.
