Crop And Save
Lust and Revenge (1996)
This is quite good attempt to investigate the world of sculpture and art as a whole. That does not at all mean that the film is overly artsy. It succeeds in being fairly complex and intelligent without pretentiousness. In fact, it is a satire, also on some other social issues like new-age-type cults or psychotherapy. Includes some interesting characters. Leaves you with a bitter-sweet aftertaste. 8/10
The Searchers (1956)
what is so good about it?
I barely could find anything valuable in this movie.
The acting is one of the poorest I've ever seen. The typical expression of feelings is throwing objects to the ground or shaking head nervously. It would be acceptable in the first silent films, but in 1956 it is pathetic.
The story is so-so, but the ending predictable right from the beginning. Also some motivations of the characters are unclear to me (especially Ethan's and Debbie's).
Indians are portrayed as primitive and childish half-monkeys. This is irritating even if we look at this film in the context of the whole western genre.
The above faults cannot be justified by the film's age. There many older movies (also westerns) that have much better constructed plot and characters, better acting and direction. Slightly redeeming quality is good cinematography. Overall 3/10
