Dan T (it) wrote: I watched this back in high school, I didn't like it. That Doesn't mean a thing. I watch it again now. It was adapted from a play by the original playwright and had the very rigid structure of a play's dialogue. It was directed by Richard Linklater. Rigid structure goes against Linklater's style. The film was also kinda preachy in heavy handed ways.
Blake E (ag) wrote: In a strange and sadistic way I loved this movie. This is not your typical run of the mill film, it's different, and that's what makes it so good to watch. At times it can be quite disturbing, but if you look beyond the incest, murder by clingwrap and all that jazz, in it's essence it's actually a nice film. Absolutely terrifyingly hilarious!

FilmGrinder S (mx) wrote: I think this film influenced the Coen brothers. Molly (Joe Don Baker), the charater can be seen in BLOOD SIMPLE as Loren Visser (M. Emmet Walsh) and in NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN as Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem), and even some plot points are similar.

Hawk (it) wrote: A lot of critics, I don't think. quite knew what to make of this film: it is hyper over the top. is incredibly dark, yet also steals elements from the video game Mario Kart, and tries to send a message about the private prisons at the same time. It's an interesting matchup, one of which the medium of movies was, I'd argue. tailor made for.. There are some not so great elements at play too including a rather annoying shaky cam, but I could overlook them easily enough.

John O (ca) wrote: I saw Queen of the Desert's premiere at the Berlinale. It's a huge disappointment, hard to believe Werner Herzog made it. I also can't believe it was submitted for the Golden Bear! What could've been a very interesting portrait of a fascinating historically important woman is actually turned into a clich ridden incredibly schmaltzy love story with little or no chemistry between Nicole Kidman and her two male leads, a badly miscast James Franco and stiff upper-lipped Damien Lewis. There is a bit of comedic chemistry between Kidman and Robert Pattinson, who frankly looks ridiculous trying to portray T.E. Lawrence and seems to realise this by playing Lawrence as someone who doesn't take himself or life at all too seriously. The soundtrack is as cheesy as it gets, like a bad parody of 60's and 70's epic soundtracks complete with Hollywoodised 'ethnic' bits. Maybe the movie will appeal to people who like Downton Abbey, but it's just so dull it's hard to imagine. Nicole does her best with a very poor script. There's a few funny lines here and there, but it's really a huge disappointment from what could have been a great epic. Exception must be made for the arabic actors involved who act with great dignity in bit parts and Mark Lewis Jones who has an all too brief but entertaining cameo as Bell's Uncle Frank Lascelles. Overall though this movie is a dud that might be renamed Queen of the Deserted Cinemas if it isn't sent straight to DVD.
