It was kind of nice to watch Julia Roberts in her search for the Oran-gutangs in the jungle. Is it necessary more educational programs in TV? Well, here's one. And there's even a wired scene at the end when a big Oran-gutang tries to hug Julia Roberts and she seems really scared.
I saw this film by accident, a wired south american production. The whole
action takes place inside the main character's house, and this is a woman
who wants to go to Miami. But all of a sudden her boyfriend shows up and
their relationship is conflicted.
I don't think this is an art movie, this is just a bad movie, in a very strange way. The sex scene is one of the weirdest things I've ever seen in a film. If the subject is south american movies, then watch 'Central Station' and 'O Quatrilho', or maybe even the new Hector Babenco (director of 'At Play In the Fields Of The Lord' and 'Kiss Of The Spider Woman')movie , 'Foolish Heart'.
The 1st segment is about a dog who keeps following a barber, the 3rd about
mother who likes to watch her son and his wife while they're having sex,
4th kind of wraps them all together.
But the best is the 3rd, with Bruno Ganz. This is one of the best things in cinema terms to ever come out of Europe, its 20 minutes are nothing but brilliant. It's about an older man who gives a ride to a beautiful and innocent young woman and her stupid male friend. Great story.
It has only a couple of scenes that you'll remember and the plot is too
slow. Otto Preminger may have done a good work with the actors in this
but this is not enough.
Even though it has no ambition either so ...
I haven't seen many german movies but 'Widows' came to my mind when I was
watching this one, both have female characters for leads but is actually
We all have seen this before many times, some like it and some don't. I gave it a 6.
This is the only film I've ever seen from Iceland. It tells the story of a
young boy in the 50's seeing for the first time the american movies and
everything else that goes on in his life.
The art film in its essence, but on this category I'd recommend 'Through The Olive Tress' or 'La Haine\Hate' and 'Lepa Sepa Lepo Gore\Pretty Village Pretty Flame'.
It's impressing the lack of ambition of this movie, the kind of film that
practically almost nobody watches.
Jennifer Beals is as beautiful as always.
But the movie as a whole is only recommended for professional dancers or fans of dancing.
I started watching this one with no hopes that it'd be any good but, for my
surprise, I enjoyed this classical story until the end. Acclaimed director
John Schlesinger and Campbell Scott had worked together before in "The
Innocent". Campbell Scott, by the way, defines his character in very
positive way and he does look 'cool'. The costumes and art direction are
excellent, especially since this is a TV movie (one of the best TV movies
I've ever seen, because I don't usually watch them and, when I do, I usually
Plus there's beautiful young English actress, Selina Boyack, she is one of the best things about this movie. I'd say she might turn out to be famous some time soon.
And this movie is better than at least 70% or 80% of the movies we see around. If you get the chance, don't miss this one, I promise you that you'll like it.
The movie takes place in New York, and it's incredible how natural it
it actually looks like real life, not a movie, the way people talk and
everything, the performance and camera positions, it just looks real. Most
films nowadays lack this, so directors should watch this movie and try to
reach this naturality.
Al Pacino is great in this movie as an addicted to heroin, it was probably because of his performance in this movie that he got the part in "Godfather".
This is the art movie in its essence. Every single minute of this movie is
complexly detailed. It was considered by the critics a masterpiece but it
could not be nominated for the Academy Awards in the 'Foreign Language
Category' because of political problems between Iran and USA at the time
(but in 99 'Children of Heaven' was nominated).
It was written by Abbas Kiarostama, who also wrote 'The White Balloon' (another great film) and 'Taste of Cherry' (not so good, although it won the Cannes Palm D'or).
This is a must see for any fan of artfilms. Simply fantastic, amazing and everything else, this movie is a 'sea of creativity'.
