Crop And Save
Godard made only experimental films.Some are masterpieces,some are great for their innovations,but mediocre due to the lack of action and plot,and some are failures.He is the only director who i consider one of the best,although he has movies rated with 4 and 5.A living paradox.
I hope it will help Godard fans,or wanna be fans to have a view over this genius's films.
A big improvement of a talented director
I've just seen this movie at the cinema today an unfortunately there were just 4 persons in the whole projection room because this movie has to be seen by more people. It is not a perfect movie,but nonetheless it has its good parts,especially in recreating the feeling that you get in a hospital ward(in Romania).Bogdan Dumitrache,who won the Best Acotr prize at the Locarno film festival portraits very convincing a man in his 30s who,from being a normal guy "minding his own business" becomes a neurotic annoying son of a sick mother who questions everything and everyone. The shots are also filmed very interesting,mainly in POV or in some kind of a reverse-POV(the POV switches to the person he is speaking with).This creates a rather unique perspective on the actions taking place. Also there is a surreal element in the film,a man masked in a bunny,as seen in the main cover picture of the movie,which is vaguely presented and remains a enigma throughout the film. Overall compared to his previous film "Hooked"(Pescuit sportiv) which is a really disappointing movie based on an interesting idea,but with a horrible editing and amateur camera-work,Best intentions is an interesting movie that should be seen by European film lovers or more specifically Romanian New Wave film lovers,resembling much Cristi Puiu's more acclaimed film "Moartea domnului Lazarescu"
Dial M for Murder (1954)
One of Alfred Hitchcock's best movies,and one of the best movies of all time.Dial M for Murder is indeed about the perfect murder.
What I personally like about Hitchcock's movies is the simplicity of the places where the movies are shot.In Rear Window is just a flat and a garden,in Lifeboat is,well just a lifeboat and so on.In Dial M for Murder the whole action happens in just one room,but the simplicity of the decor is compensated with the complex story.Another thing that makes Hitchcock's movies so awesome is that you never now for sure how the movie will end,until it ends.This adds a great tension to the movie that keeps the viewer in his chair until the end of the movie.
All in all,the plot,the actors and of course the Director make Dial M for Murder a great mystery thriller that should,in my opinion,be rated as one of the best movies of all time and stay in the IMDb 250 top somewhere in the top 10 in the beginning of the list,not at the bottom.
