(nl) wrote: What the documentary "Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer" does extremely well is going beyond just the facts of the case of three of its members, Maria Alyokhina, Ekaterina Samutsevich & Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, of the title punk band who were jailed in Moscow on charges of hooliganism after a protest song in a Moscow cathedral.(Nadezhda's father is an early front runner for the coolest dad of the 21st century.) That starts with there being not only more people involved in that fateful protest than just those three, but in others in and around Moscow, which also includes the ever popular of kissing of police officers, all the while wearing colorful balaclavas, in response to Vladimir's reelection/stranglehold on power. After which, they returned to their secret headquarters to plot more hijinx. To its credit, "Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer" also captures the anger from the other side of the Russian Orthodox Church which also manages to hang itself with sexism from about the 13th century in its referencing witches and demons that goes beyond just having a problem with the band's name.(Admittedly, though, if you are going to exile them to an island, then Manhattan's really not a bad place.) All of which is in a modern day Russia which only creates disorder by keeping order by force(as one band member put it, the state lost by winning and bringing so much international attention to the case) and that really has to find a better way to balance religion and state for once which was the whole point of the protests in the first place. On another note, I am definitely warming up to Pope Francis the Cool.

They meet and form a partnership regarding some info on a currently successful industrialist (played wonderfully by that guy from 'Scarface' who played the druglord Sosa). There are certainly many fine moments that evoke memories of some of the finest suspense and action movies. Unfortunately, the film is too inconsistent and suffers from high predictability. But the actors definitely do elevate the initial quality of the feature and the ending was definitely memorable. Worth a look!

As a romance goes, it's fairly modern (for a 30yr old movie) with both leads being equal in importance, and neither one outshining the other. Redford is great here, and Streep is her usual bang on self as well, slowly warming up over the course of the nearly 3 hour run-time. It can seem mildly slow in places, but if you just give it time to unfold it is actually worth the investment. I said to my wife at the end, "Boy now I really feel like going to visit Africa." Sidney Pollack does a great job of weaving together the scenery, the romance, the story, the characters, all into a coherent and enjoyable story that avoids most of the the traps of many romances. This film walked away with 7 Oscars in 1986 (Best Picture, Director, Cinematography, Adapted Screenplay, Score, Sound, Art-Direction/Set) and I don't feel like it robbed any other more deserving films (major nominees that year included: Color Purple, Witness, Ran (Kurosawa), Prizzi's Honor, Kiss of the Spider Woman). It didn't win acting awards, that's fine, because they were strong performances, but not award calibre. A very good film, and one of the few epic romances that stands up well 30yrs later.
