(au) wrote: The idea had to seem like a "can't miss" project on paper. Zombie movies and mockumentaries are two crowded sub-genres that are definitely ripe for satire, and "American Zombie" attempts to skewer both at once. Unfortunately, mostly due to some sub-par writing and maddening shifts in tones, the end result is a colossal failure on almost every level. There are some clever ideas here early on, but the film is clunky and unwieldy it's hard to find any of it funny. And for every clever idea, there seem to be a dozen that are left unrealized. That makes for a very frustrating film. and equally baffling are the shifts in tone, especially when it appears that a good chunk of this is supposed to be taken seriously. The final half hour enters "Blair Witch Project" territory, when this apparently becomes a horror film all of a sudden. It's not successful, but it's also true that it's the first time during the course of this cumbersome picture that my interest was sparked. By that time, however, this was too far gone to be salvaged. The film crew, including this project's actual director, could not be duller. In fact, there's only one interesting character in the entire film, an Asian actress by the name of Suzy Nakamura. Her character comes across as kind of a living dead Bridget Jones, and at times you either like her or feel sorry for her. The film was obviously meant to be a social satire, with the zombie community representing other minorities such as homosexuals, but this isn't nearly clever enough to pull that off. "District 9" did it, but "American Zombie" clearly is that in that same league. This rates high on potential, but it's not so strong with the follow through.

I hate all hospital/medical films (I blanche at the first glimpse of blood, injuries and the like), and during long sections of Patrice Chreau's film I was wincing and focusing my eyes everywhere but on the screen itself. What won me over was the underlying foundation of humanity and love that the film manages to radiate despite the grimness of the subject matter (a brother who takes care of his older brother as he slowly loses the battle to an ambiguous disease). I was particularly impressed with how Chreau depicts the relationship between the two brothers: initially strained, it slowly gives way to a kind of love and respect that remains unspoken, chiefly because there's no need to try to explain it in words. Actually, much of what makes SON FRERE so powerful and affecting are the very things that [i]are[/i] left unspoken-- the sense of intimacy that is built through simply carrying out the actions that shouldn't have to be asked for in the first place. One gets the sense that it isn't duty that motivates Luc (the younger brother), but rather a largely silent, growing sense of satisfaction that healing is occurring on a spiritual level even as the physical body continues its descent into ruin and decay. While it is Bruno Todeschini's brutally physical performance as the older brother that gets the most attention (he seems to have been the one nominated for all the awards), I was much more impressed by Eric Caravaca's turn as the emotionally conflicted younger brother, for not only does he find a pitch-perfect blend of anger and sweetness, eroticism and innocence-- he becomes the emotional base that the rest of the film is delicately set upon. It's really a remarkable, understated performance. Now if only all films were able to capture with such feeling and poignancy the nuances and complications, the joys and the pain of human relationships and the human experience in general.

Robert Carlyle gives us an interesting portrayal as the man himself, as he schemes, kills, manipulates, and pushes his way into power. Also staring Liev Schreiber (Ernst Hanfstaengl) Peter O'Toole (President Hindenburg) and Peter Stormare (Ernst Rohm). Hitler: The Rise of Evil is an intriguing take on how Adolf Hitler rose to power.

(fr) wrote: You cannot fully appreciate Austin Powers until you have seen the Connery Bond films and a movie like this, cranked out of a 1970s assembly line, that perfectly exemplifies how dull and manufactured hippie cinema inevitably became: This Russ Meyer/Roger Ebert collaboration is a visually weak, shallow, and uninteresting. It is in thoroughly familiar territory, its junk soundtrack is unfortunately repetitive, and the editing is below average. If you are interested in hippie cinema, there are a slew of other movies you should see instead -- even if for their cultural relevance only -- including but not limited to those that appear in the BBS Lost and Found box set; likewise, if you are interested in Russ Meyer, a far far better starting point would be Faster Pussycat, Kill! Kill!
