Jesus Was a Commie (2011)
Watched this short film hoping that Modine would get to the point, but that never happened. The cinematography was fairly good and Modine delivered his lines in his easy going voice - which could have possibly put me to sleep had this film been any longer.
Nothing he said was new or original or thought provoking, except maybe you might be impressed if you were a middle school student. "Jesus was a commie," has been said before - it's not controversial. Stringing together quotes from famous people makes the film sound deep, but it should be backed up with some sort of philosophical argument.
As I said, nothing Modine said in this film hasn't been said before, but I guess he felt better about himself after making such a clichéd short film.
The Dead (1987)
One man's opinion
I have watched thousands of movies in my life and I believe this movie is the most "perfect" movie that has ever been made. By perfect I mean the storytelling, the plot, the acting, the staging, the camera work, etc. (This is a lay opinion; I have no background in film production.) A lot of movies have perfect scenes, such as the bartender filing a report with the police officer in the movie Fargo. (Indeed, that scene could play well as a short.) In The Dead every scene is done to perfection, making the entire movie perfect. Perhaps, John Huston sold his soul to the Devil to make such a movie. Hopefully, Daniel Webster has gotten him out of the contract!
