Tor M (kr) wrote: Sort of a grim growing up tale where two bestfriends get's their friendship tested when an older fella get's involved in their lives.Paddy Considine does a fantastic job as Morell - a total looser and the main ingredient of the film. The rest of the cast is really good too.It's often mild, but some scenes are rather rugged and the evolving characters are on full view here. Observable and powerful, charming and real. The climax is great and the slow build up is both fitting and very solid.A very "British" flick that's slightly odd but at the same time very realistic.7.5 out of 10 hip outfits.

It was one of my favorite films when i was younger. Rachael Leigh Cook plays a good part and it's one of her best earlier films. It's an intense and gripping film and one i loved and still do, even if i can't remember it all. I really want to see it again someday.
Art S (kr) wrote: Ron Fricke was the cinematographer for the classic photography film, Koyaanisqatsi (1982), directed by Godfrey Reggio. That earlier film had no plot but the theme of a "world out of balance" was clear and the music by Philip Glass was memorable and now immediately recognizable. Although Reggio followed up with two additional qatsi films, Fricke was not involved. Baraka was Fricke's own "sequel" to the earlier work, although Baraka's theme (or themes) is much less obvious. Instead, this film (and the subsequent Samsara from 2011) is all about the images - and they are gorgeous, especially in this remastered blu-ray version. However, without a clear indication of where each sequence was shot - and the images come from 24 different countries on 6 continents - viewers are left to speculate. Therefore, we simply talked aloud to the movie (and each other) about the locations and the possible connections between sequences (cutting from a battery hen farm to Japanese commuters squashed into a train makes some kind of statement, I guess). The music is a bit less compelling than that of Philip Glass but occasionally rises to the occasion. All told, Baraka gives you a chance to be fully amazed by the wonders of this world and the varied people in it - circa the early nineties. As such, we sometimes reflected upon whether all these wondrous things are still with us twenty-something years later.
