Tarzan's Revenge (1938)
Talk About A Torso!
I am at a loss to understand why so many reviews here are so negative and for some reason expect Shakespeare when come on guys we're talking about Tarzan. And this Tarzan is great, great, great to look at! In fact I could not take my eyes away from his rock hard sculpted bod - heaven help me. For one thing he was the most natural looking Tarzan and that added to his credibility not only as the character of Tarzan but as an actor as well. The storyline was okay for a Tarzan but then let's fact it all the Tarzan story lines sort of blend into one another. Also, the supporting cast was excellent - some really great character actors.
Mine vaganti (2010)
This brilliant film may just have the dumbest title in the history of the movies and I stayed away from it while it sat on a stack of incoming films from my old standby Amazon.com. Then quite by accident I picked it up and saw it was Italian and thought it couldn't be as dumb as the dumb title. Boy, was I in for a surprise! This film is not only absolutely brilliant but a masterpiece if there ever was one. I was totally knocked over by every aspect of this film, its deep humanity, its incredible beauty, everything about it. I even cried at the end and I never cry in movies. Perhaps it was because this film said something about the human condition that I have never seen in the movies. And what it said was that love cannot be confined to specific boxes that we all know and understand, that love is without boundaries and if we are smart we understand that and in fact can even explore those boundaries. At the very end when the male lead looks at the two loves in his life, one male, one female, it is made abundantly clear that he loves both of them equally and unconditionally. Wow! What a way to go!
The Paperboy (2012)
So Much Talent!
I'm giving this film a 10 because I can only marvel at so much talent so utterly misspent in this southern Gothic tale of woe. This film more than anything else demonstrates out clearly out of sync Hollywood is with the world and why ultimately Hollywood will implode on its own madness which apparently has gripped even the most talented. The point of this film apparently is to see just how disgusting it can be so that the audience runs screaming from the theater. There is one disgusting scene after another as though they are competing against one another in a disgust marathon. The fact that the highest paid talent in the world would be seduced by this utterly disgusting script is further proof that something is rotten in Denmark in this case Hollywood.
Young Adam (2003)
Tilta Is Tops
Tilta Swinton is my favorite actress because she is utterly unique. No one looks like her, no one acts like her. She is like a diamond in the rough, a true gem that you want to hold in your hand and rub until you are absolutely convinced she belongs only to you. And no actress has more courage. In this film she does things that no top actress would even dream of doing. For example, she wears absolutely no makeup. And when we see her actually put on lipstick it really is a shock. For me the film was about her and that's why I saw it. The rest of the movie for me was alright and the cast was okay but I am so hooked on her that all I can see is her.
W imie... (2013)
A Work of Art
This film is absolutely superb obviously made by an individual who is a true artist because every scene was like a painting they were so perfectly framed. And within these beautiful frames is the story of a handsome, sexy priest who is attracted to a handsome sexy man and guess what folks? As a recovering Catholic I can attest the fact that many priests are gay and even the current pope when faced with the issue was non-committal, stating that it was between the man and his Creator which I thought was a way of the final admission of the reality of the priesthood in the Catholic church. The fact that the priest's lover himself becomes a priest is simply further testimony to the fact that there are priests who are in love and are able to carry on a relationship within the boundaries of the church. I am at a loss to understand why men would choose to become priests knowing they are attracted to men but apparently according to the latest findings almost all men going into the priesthood are gay and that eventually gays will take over the church. Now that's something to think about.
A Complete Surprise!
This is a superb film that catches you completely by surprise. It is very disarming in the way the story is told because it is so casual and nonchalant, so much so that when the reality of what actually happens hits you it is really something. Talk about surprise! It's like a slug to the gut and you sit there trying to catch your breath wondering how something like this could have happened and you never saw it coming. Actually, in retrospect, there were clues, really obvious clues but somehow they are ignored until the film is over and you start to piece it all together and realize the unimaginable has happened. The central figure in the story is the woman and everything revolves around her but she is a complete mouse, always agreeable, hardly a threat to anyone until all hell breaks loose and she turns out to be a tsunami.
This is an utterly charming film done in the 40's screwball comedy style with a modern touch and twist. The entire cast is absolutely delightful and the settings are luxuriantly tropical with lots of trees and bushes and animals. The Mother dominates and in fact is credited first with the Father just as dominate and credited second. The two young hunks are third and fourth. And they are quite a pair. Because of the situation with the parents hovering around the two men are stuck apart and only get some respite when they travel into the jungle with friends. But it really is the Mother's story and her realization that her son is not only gay but has invited his lover to visit. When reality sinks in the Mother is very vulnerable and very touching and your heart really goes out to her. Apparently the Mother is played by a top Philippines star and she truly walks away with the film. No wonder she was credited first. She deserves it. It's her film.
Avant que j'oublie (2007)
Stays With You
I walked out of this film when I sat down to watch it the first time but my film bud told me later that the star also wrote and directed and was a big star in France. That intrigued me so I sat down again to watch the film and thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact, I could not stop thinking about it primarily because I wondered how a famous French movie star would make such a personal statement about his own life which apparently he does in this film. First off, he's gay, but more than that he's an old gay guy past his prime who gets off with hustlers. This was shocking enough on its own but put in a larger perspective you have to wonder how many guys are just like him and if their lives are as bleak as the life depicted here. Yet, there was such a touch of humanity in the film that I really related to the guy even though I found his entire situation not just sad but tragic. Ultimately, I realized his life is empty because he has not risen above his basic carnal desires to achieve a higher state of being which can only be done either through faith or some philosophy.
Forgive and Forget (2000)
Push Over For A Pretty Face
The reviews here have been uniformly negative and in some cases even nasty and although I would like to understand all the negativity I really cannot. I thoroughly enjoyed this film because the male lead really had me going and frankly I did not give a hoot how many holes there were in the script and there were plenty because I just could not stop looking at this guy he's that incredible. The story, let's face it, is far-fetched but hey it's the movies folks and we don't go to the movies to watch everyday life - we want to see something new and different and this film stretches the point almost to the breaking, but even still it works for me because I just could not take my eyes off the male lead. Even the ending which most here found absurd worked for me because it showed exactly what happens when a straight guy thinks he has been screwed by a gay guy and this is just what the straight guy here thought - and in fact he had - not literally but mentally and that was just as bad.

Brilliant but Tragic
This is a brilliant cinematic achievement. The director has created a visually stunning atmosphere that grips you just as any great work of art does. He tells his story with virtually no words so that the atmosphere of the film really becomes very penetrating. The cast is gorgeous - everyone of them - male and female - and there are scenes so erotic you have to take a break and cool off. And Poland is so Catholic. After all, they did produce a pope and the modern standards we take for granted simply do not exist in Catholic Poland. The tragic conclusion of the film supports this idea in a way that is really shocking for everyday America where gay rights are almost taken for granted. And abortion rights too. We have so much to be grateful for in America. It would be nice if we really appreciated everything we have. This film is almost prehistoric it is so unrelenting in its bashing of gays, something which doesn't seem to be happening any longer in much of the United States.
