Oriental Elegy (1996). Visually impressionistic, atmospherically dense, and narratively opaque, Oriental Elegy is the surreal journey of a displaced spirit (Aleksandr Sokurov) as he wanders in the interminable darkness through the temporal landscape of a quaint and isolated feudal-era fishing village. Guided by a series of faintly illuminated rooms, the wandering spirit comes upon ancient souls who take on physical forms as they recount their personal stories of daily existence, loss, and tragedy in the peasant community. Intrigued by his initial visit to a curiously distracted elderly woman, the spirit returns to her home in order to ask a fundamental question - "What is happiness?" - an existential query that is innocently answered with innate humility and accepted unknowingness. .

Jason K (fr) wrote: Solid film, the major negative i would say in this would be having a lead character (not actor) being so weak- its hard to get behind following them sometimes. Other then that a forward moving story that lets you in when it wants and not before.
Chloe A (ca) wrote: 3 1/2 stars! I didn't enjoy this as much as A Cinderella Story as it's basically just a re make, but Selena Gomez was cute. It was very Disney to be fair.
Kevin P (nl) wrote: I am beginning to wonder if Willem Defoe can act anymore. This is probably the worst film I have watched this year. The acting is wooden, the direction unnecessarily pretentious and pretends to be arty but fails on all counts, the plot (who cares). Willem Defoe is killed 90 minutes to late in this film...... avoid and watch something else. Adds noting just wastes time.

Steve W (mx) wrote: American Psycho is an excellent serial killer movie. Bale gives one of his best over the top roles yet. There are times when the movie gets a little unrealistic (chainsaw, police) but its still really entertaining. The ending was a bit confusing, but it later adds a nice touch.Second Viewing: After reading the book and then re-watching the film, I must say the film is a bit lacking when it comes to certain details. I liked Bale's performance less, and the movie's only real shining moments are cohesively putting events if a less scattershot way like in the book. The movie also has a better ending.

Edgar C (us) wrote: Melville's challenge even to himself and his abilities scratches cinematic perfection, whose remnants would be seen plaguing the 70s including the atmospheric mood and the flawless cinematography present throughout Le Cercle Rouge (1970). Excellent performances by notorious actors including Simone Signoret provide a memorable ensemble personality of revolutionary proportions. Extraordinaire! 99/100

Considering the amazing cast and fantastic history however, The Moments Men just never quite satisfies. With a few peaks and valleys along the way, the finale just left me flat.
