A ruthless inquisitor spins the superstitions of local peasants into religious heresy, finding cause to accuse dozens of innocent men and women of witchcraft. The inquisitor targets nobles and merchants, whose property and goods are then confiscated. After suffering an array of medieval tortures, most of the accused confess–only to be burned alive at the stake as helpless villagers watch. With its bold and striking cinematography, the film captures scenes of both daring nudity and brutal torture

(ru) wrote: It presents how film-makers manipulate the audience's reaction to every scene of a film.
(us) wrote: The modeling industry disgusts me, and this documentary is a good illustration of why. Having said that, this is actually pretty interesting, albeit not easy to watch.
(ru) wrote: Thanks to fine performances and elegant direction, "Hannah Arendt" is an interesting, compelling, sometimes thrilling work centered around a woman often vilified for her unconventional (yet logically sound and undeniably fearless) thinking. The intellectual debates that play out on screen put the audience in a position akin to voluntarily taking a particularly engrossing college course. Subsequently, it is certainly not for everyone. Make no mistake: this is a dry movie. Quite a bit of time is devoted to watching Hannah look at a TV screen and a majority of the film's proceedings take place as a series of philosophical conversations about the human condition in relation to legality and morality. However, the moral questions about the mediocrity of those involved in dictatorial bureaucracies, the so-called "banality of evil", and the nature of guilt are supported by the film's confident, contemplative pace and make for stimulating viewing if you choose to engage with them. The final culmination of this ideological game is incredible enough to warrant the price of admission on its own.
(ru) wrote: Amazing and hauntingly beautiful. You don't even need to like Sigur Ros. It makes you want to get on a plane ASAP to Iceland.
(ru) wrote: Funny, adorable ending, too. Loved it.
(kr) wrote: B-movie wonder. This is one of the most bizarre, disgusting, nonsensical films I have ever seen, and I love it. Think the Matrix meets the most grotesque cannibal movie you can think of. This is not the usual Bruce Campbell fare-- in fact I barely recognized him, as there is none of his usual wit or silliness. The whole movie is like an extraordinarily bad dream, and the visuals got under my skin.
(es) wrote: Classic Hip Hop flick. Acting was pretty bad, but I dont think anyone watched this for the acting.
(ca) wrote: A good early film by Billy Wilder. Made in 1943, I suppose the propagandistic ending was inevitable. Other than that, an interesting entertaining film.
(de) wrote: Rob Lowe and Demi Moore give a relationship the college try. Much of their time together is spent arguing about each other's best friends; who are constantly attempting to sabotage their relationship. Unbearable.
(us) wrote: Good Movie.. Pretty funny.. Female version of hangover
(ag) wrote: Terrible Script, but I still Love it. Its defentely a film of its time, the swinging 60s and Horror crashing into each other. Starring Alan Bradley from Corrie who comes across a witches cavern that uses dodgy drugs to try and get him to sign a pact with the devil, with Barbara Steele as the Green Goddess. Despite a having a bloody awful script that makes no sense at all with a scooby-doo type ending, its a really entertaining film, its very well made. A understated classic that should of had a better ending.
(br) wrote: A brilliantly edited, scored & acted piece which unravels the tormented mind of it's lead protagonist. The story narrative going backward from finish to start (much like 'Irreversible', but to greater effect here) puts the viewer in the same position as Guy Pearce - discovering the meanings of all the little notes & tattoos that he had forgotten (suggesting that you had too). It all boils down to a shocking climax where all the strands meet.
