Stanislas Hassler blazes the development of modern art in his gallery, packed with works of surprising shapes, colours and textures, and where exhibitions turn into media events. Gilbert Moreau is one of the artists whose sculptures are on display in the gallery. His wife, Josée, is intrigued by the stern Stanislas, who devotes his free time to photography in an apartment that highlights his sophisticated artistic tastes. But besides enlarged pictures of calligraphic samples, Stanislas is amassing a collection of photographs that reveal a disturbed character. So why would Josée endanger her mature relationship with Gilbert for the morbid observation of Stanislas's hidden personality?
Writer:Henri-Georges Clouzot (scenario, adaptation and dialogue), Monique Lange (scenario collaborator), Marcel Moussy (scenario collaborator)

Nicolas K (gb) wrote: Oozing with assured direction by the critically acclaimed Andrea Arnold, this study of adolescence stands out for its unflinching honesty, providing yet another astonishing example of the new British cinematic realism. Excellent performances by both newcomer Katie Jarvis and Michael Fassbender who has also been making waves in Hunger and Inglorious Basterds.

Walter M (ru) wrote: Dakota Skye(Eileen April Boylan) is a high school junior who considers herself to be medium cute. Admittedly, she does have one thing going for herself and that is the ability to see exactly what a person really means when he is lying.(Sort of like the guy on "Lie to Me" but much cooler.) So, she knows when her musician boyfriend Kevin(J.B. Ghuman Jr.) is lying to her which is comforting to her in a weird sort of way. She does not need her ability to know her longtime friends desperately want to get her interested in studying for the SAT's which might be complicated by Kevin's friend Jonah(Ian Nelson) coming to stay for a while. "Dakota Skye" has a breathtaking opening scene, a worthy message about finding a direction in life(especially if it is east northeast) and a bittersweet tone that works to its advantage. However, even with its clever insights on honesty and trust in relationships, the movie is brought down by its amateurish acting and pedestrian direction. And wait a sec. Wasn't there an episode of "Medium" where Allison(Patricia Arquette) was a human lie detector for an episode?

Ric L (fr) wrote: Kingdom of Spiders was a poorly produced movie with a slow plotline and virtually no ending. However, it was so bad that it was almost good, and not all of it was bad. This movie was about a small town that gets invaded by a swarm of tarantulas and a group of people fighting to survive. There were many flaws in the movie and the quality could have been improved a lot. First of all in the beginning for the intro the camera was very shaky and a tripod should have been used, it was a bad way to start off the movie in terms of camera shots. They did comeback with a decent shot though in the multi-cam with the cow, it was not the most professional but it was a good effect and made it a little more dramatic. Another flaw in the movie was the time period that they were in did not match up with the advancements they had, for example in the beginning the main character gets a phone call and his phone tells him who is calling, they did not have that in this time period. The details in how the spiders acted too were off, first of all, tarantulas don't spin webs, second, how did the spiders open the electrical box and get the power off, and third, how did all of the thousands of spiders that were in the town the night before just get up and leave? This film was mediocre at best and with the lack of ending it made it worse, but I would watch it again because it was so bad it kept me interested.

Not a fan of Gerwig or the annoying, haughty way her character Violet speaks. A stupid chick flick with few good laughs. "Its characters are unrecognizable to those of us inhabiting the real world, and despite its mounds and mounds of dialogue, it ultimately doesn't have a sticking thought in its pretty head."
