Crop And Save
Le collectionneur (2002)
Excellent thriller, poor DVD
The film The film itself is a very interesting approach to the thriller genre.
Just when I thought I had seen them all (psycho killer vs
detective), this film came to remind some can always improve
things. Instead of pure suspense/action, the film opens many sub- plots that brings an extra to the main plot and characters. It's a
must see for amateurs of the genre and fans of Luc Picard. Actors
are great as well as the filmography.
The DVD What really annoyed me was the DVD version itself. The film is
presented in an anamorphic (2:35:1) format. Wow. Oh, it's very
crisp. But the whole film is shrinked !! It is so annoying I couldn't
follow the story by times. Actors look small and fat, objects are all
deformed, the whole experience is ruined. This is a truly amateur- ish kind of mistake, one that cannot be explained coming from
Chrystal Films and a 5$million dollar production. Thank god I saw
it at the theater.
Bottom line If you wanna rent the film, it's better to rent the VHS. It won't be
distorted and shrinked. Extras on the 2nd disc are nice though.
Why Do Fools Fall in Love (1998)
Rythym's got the blues
The life and death of a young singer who's caught between success, drugs and...women. A nice plot: three wives in court trying to get a piece of his millions... The trial makes us discover from many witnesses' point of view the life of this obscure rock n roll star. Entertaining and touching with a zest of humor. Although Larenz Tate does not always succeed in interpreting the depths of the colored and troubled character Frankie Lymon, the movie is surprising and brings a good reflection on the glamourous industry of music.
Le péril jeune (1994)
Sex-Drugs-RocknRoll "A la francaise"
Five guys meet ten years after high school and remember good times, reveal little secrets. A journey into their first joints, girls, riots...touching and very funny...a fresh laugh riot with a nostalgic background.
