Eric N (mx) wrote: Maximum beautiful images. Darius Khondji was the perfect and only choice to replace Christopher Doyle in a Wong Kar Wai film. Critics didn't buy Norah Jones as the lead, but I see the genius of this casting -- she's an inexperienced actress playing an unworldy young girl -- of course it had to be someone like her. And she has Faye Wong's eyes and soft face. This is like Fallen Angels done a decade later except the opposite soul behind it - light instead of dark. It's his most at-peace work since Chungking Express. But forget that stuff. This is a contemplative adventure film for those of us who like philosophy and the exploration of ourselves and the fleeting connections we make with others.

Private U (jp) wrote: This movie really fascinates you fram the very start. It's a dark movie about revenge and a brother that feels responsible for his sister's career and death. He tries to redeem himself by taking care of her daugter, a small girl with all the characteristics of a small girl but with dark secrets. I know Morgenthaler as a funny man, and some parts in this film is hilarious. The elderly and rather unsexy dubbers, the daughters take on pretending to be a family with other kids ,where she at first is not allowed to be another family dog by the "parents", so she suggests she could be the slut. Every family has a slut, she figures. That and Princess' mausoleum gives this tragic story a funny edge. In this film, Morgenthaler establishes himself as an artist on a much deeper level than just humor. One of my definite favourites within animated movies.

And what happened to the White Christmas cover that was put out as a promo song for this?? Very different than what I was expecting from the early screen shots, etc. Will watch again eventually. The sound effects and music was simply wonderful.

Dougal S (ca) wrote: Made at the arse end of the Hammer era this is a bizarre film that sees a return to a period setting whilst trying to marry it with an odd psycho-sexual plotline straight out of the Seventies.Robert Hardy (off of All Creatures Great and Small) is a Bavarian baron who keeps his two adult children drugged up and locked up in his castle, convinced they are suffering from mental disease, and treats it by regularly 'bleeding' them. He sends for a physician from Austria who turns out to be a quack, intent on curing them through wierd contraptions and mumbo jumbo.Meanwhile the two 'children' keep escaping and undrtaking a very odd incestuous relationship whilst the boy does a good sideline in murdering girls from the local village which the father and his manservant keep covering up.The whole thing descends into a surreal climax as the cast descend into insanity and murder whilst the villagers advance on the castle with burning torches, urged on by a deranged priest.This really is odd stuff - the cinematography and period details are quality but the whole plot is off the wall and non-sensical. The cast seem intent on outdoing each other in the over-acting stakes, taking it in turns to chew up the scenery with great gusto. As Hammer were now trying to compete with the new wave of US horror this comes with added blood and violence with several arterial spraying mutilations as the film progresses but they do little to lift it.The whole thing is either complete hokum or an amusing diversion depending on your point of view. I'd probably never have watched it if it hadn't been included on the Hammer box set I've been ploughing through and I managed to fall asleep during it... twice...

Por otra parte el asesino Donal Grant es un rival al nivel de James Bond, idntico a l en casi todo representa una verdadera amenaza para el agente, como debe ser un buen asesino de la serie, y su pelea final es de los mejores puntos en accin que ha tenido la saga.Esta pelcula es un gran avance en todos los aspectos y asombra con muchas buenas escenas de accin y tensin que no tuvo la primera y que quedan precisas en la trama. Es una excelente prueba de la calidad de la saga con un protagonista aun ms admirable y ms representativo. Un gran paso adelante en una pelcula que no slo es disfrutable, sino tambin sorprendente en cmo pudo superarse a un enorme nivel.From Russia with love (1963) Calificacin: 8.6/10

Blake P (mx) wrote: Soon-to-be nun Viridiana (Pinal) is finally ready to take her vows, but that dream is soon interrupted when it seems her uncle, Don Jaime (Rey) wants her to come visit for a few days. After Mother Superior insists it's a good idea, Viridiana goes. To Don Jaime's shock, she now looks almost exactly like his wife that recently died. Determined to corrupt her, one weird night he requests the girl dress up in his late wife's wedding dress, and then he asks for her hand in marriage. Shocked by her uncle's strange offer, Viridiana's last night leaves on a negative note-- but when Don Jaime attempts to rape her, he lies the next day, saying she can't go to the convent because he took her virginity. A few days later, he kills himself. Deeply disturbed, Viridiana tries to repair the family, help the poor and become a different person-- but when her cousin (Rabal) comes to take the house, it seems he wants her too. "Viridiana" was made when Buuel was at the top of his game-- this was the film that marked the beginning of the decade for which he's most famous for, and it's hard to admit this isn't one of his best movies. At first, the film seems like a simple film-- with a unique plot and good characters. But as the film goes on, the film, at one time so small, turns into madness, whether it be surreal images or plot twists, but the film gets really crazy when the obvious satirization on religion goes as far as mocking "The Last Supper". Well, that touch caused the film to be banned in Mexico, but it also made one of the most daring scenes ever filmed. It's so perfect-- this film really has the Buuel touch, but none of his movies have ever been this absurd, interesting and complex as this. It has such a satirical bite to it too, and because of how shocking and controversial it is, that's exactly why the film still lasts. "Viridiana" is near perfect-- it isn't afraid to have an opinion, and it just works in every direction it takes. Recommended.

Buggy B (it) wrote: This was a surprise hit for me because it started out really weird, low budget art-housie even but developed into a unique and thought-provoking dystopian romance. I only bothered with this initially because I saw Ewan McGregor's name attached, but I'm glad I persevered, he and Eva Green do an excellent job together with the material -which I would think would require some serious trust in your director as they lose each of their 5 senses and eat lipstick, mustard, soap and whole raw fish between moments of violence, sadness and several love scenes. (Yeah that happens). Oh and how fun was it to see McGregor on screen with Ewen Bremner (Trainspotting) again.Anyways, McGregor plays a likable chef who enters into a relationship with a scientist just as a global disorder begins to rob the masses of their senses. The first to go is smell, then taste, touch, sound and finally sight. Each deficit is presaged by some kind of emotional breakdown. Eva's character provides insight through narration as chaos ensues and authorities try to maintain order in a changed world. The ending of this is just...wow. I've been thinking about it for days now, well that and the binge eating frenzy. So yeah, not a fantastic movie but worth checking out for originality, decent acting and an ending that will leave you considering. 11/8/14
