(kr) wrote: Aubrey Plaza is very charming and the movie would not be worth seeing without her.
(fr) wrote: Some of the characters were a little too exaggerated at the start of the movie for me to feel that invested in the story--for example, too naive, in the case of Kaja, or too mean, in the case of her husband. Later on, the characters started to become more human and thus more interesting, although the dysfunctional marriages and the rapidity with which the sexual liaisons formed gave the movie a tone that was both dark and a bit difficult to believe. I did find Kaja's own personal development more interesting by the end of the film. On an oddly positive note, I didn't really see what the musical interludes interspersed throughout had much to do with the rest of the movie, but I actually kind of enjoyed them.

(de) wrote: I just watched this again on cable. At this point I've lost count of how many times I've seen it, which is fine - because this movie is amazing every time.The alien in the living room is dramatic every time. The realization that the hand of fate is reaching in to work it's magic is highly satisfying every time. The score is excellent. The acting is on point.If you lose yourself in a fuss over the religious matter surrounding Graham's character, well that's just your loss. In the context of this movie, it works masterfully.
(br) wrote: It took me about 2 times to watch this movie to really like it. And now, I can watch this movie anytime. Adam Beach's character did a good job at bringing humor into the film. Michael Grayeyes' character...was so sweet, I felt bad for him and that things changed for him. I'm glad in a way that this movie had a positive ending.
(de) wrote: I may be over inflating the rating by just a bit (maybe a half-star too many), but this movie, or better yet, collection of five related vignettes really got to be on a deep level. This ended up being the perfect movie for a stay at home dinner/movie date. The connection between the five stories is that they all take place on the same night in five different cities around the world, and each story looks at the interaction between a cabbie and their passenger(s). In the end, this becomes a connection of character studies, of life itself, and how it seems that only at night are people truly open with their words and feelings. It's quirky, funny (at times down right hilarious), and ultimately moving and heartfelt. Check this one out. Unlike Rachel Getting Married (among others), this is an indie film that doesn't suck.

(it) wrote: A very effective drama, thanks to its timeless themes regarding escaping isolation through fantastical scenarios, and an amazing performance from the ever-complex William Hurt. Some areas of the film haven't aged too well (camerawork is a bit pedantic for this type of subject matter), but when it's good it's at the level of a near-masterpiece.
(es) wrote: A totally cheesy, hilarious, explosive, over the top, absolutely fun entry in the entire series. You really need to turn your brain off to watch something like this, but it's freaking Godzilla! That's what you're supposed to do!
(gb) wrote: Yes, Rod Steiger could act his way out of a paper bag. Maybe even a steel plated burlap sac, hes that good.
