An Amsterdam Tale torrent reviews
(es) wrote: Adam Resurrected was made in 08 but is only finding a dvd release this year (in May). I found it to be deeply depressing and incredibly complex. It tells the story of a former circus performer who lives in a mental asylum for holocaust survivors in Israel. Paul Schrader directed it and delivers a powerful film. It explores some profoundly dark psychological effects of a man who spent a year as an SS officer's personal dog and lost his entire family in the mean time. Its a film unlike any other and will no doubt leave an impression on most who see it. Jeff Goldblum has never been this good and it's a wonder his performance never garnered more attention. If you like challenging films then definitely check this one out.

(kr) wrote: A rare Steven Seagal success story, "Under Siege" is quite openly a product of its time, but still a pretty fun mindless action film.The film, directed by Andrew Davis (Above the Law, The Fugitive), tells the story of a cook/former SEAL, who must overcome a team of terrorists who have taken control of a Navy battleship.While Seagal pulls out his martial arts moves a few times, most of the fun comes from the insanity ridden performances as the terrorist ringleaders by Tommy Lee Jones and Gary Busey. Jones in particular is so memorable that he raises this film from a middling so-so action film into a memorable flick that you could potentially rewatch.A fun action romp.
(nl) wrote: I watched this a few years ago for the first time. It's not just about interracial dating. There is a young woman subjugated by her domineering and abusive father. There is substance abuse. There are complex family dynamics. A lot of interesting food for thought. But, for me it wasn't a feel good movie. With more analysis, I think that Jungle Fever was intended by director Spike Lee as a cautionary tale, especially for black men. What happens when you do drugs? Nothing good. What happens when a successful working class black man cheats on his wife with his white secretary? He loses his wife, his home, and his kids.What happens when the successful black white collar employee thinks he is secure enough he can tell his boss he quits, without a new job in place?A successful married black man in Jungle Fever has a lot to lose.In spite of this seeming to be a cautionary tale, the response was possibly not as intended. Instead of discouraging interracial dating this may have encouraged it.Maybe I'm wrong, but I think society in general is more accepting of interracial relationships than it was when Spike Lee was growing up. There are a lot of places in America where you no longer have to worry about your family and friends going crazy because you are dating someone of a different race or ethnicity. There is definitely more of a live and let live attitude, although racial prejudice is probably not going to completely die out anytime soon.
(mx) wrote: Quite interesting. An informative look into the struggle of perhaps the only method director. It's kind of amazing that the actual film Fitzcarraldo doesn't look like it had so much trouble during production. I was kind of hoping to see Klaus Kinski go crazy, as he is famous for, but they omit it, much to my disappointment. Reardless, it's an interesting piece on one of the more impressive movies ever filmed.

(au) wrote: This movie sure is beautiful and unique but I don't really get what they are trying to say through the weird scenes. I'm suck at interpreting poem and watching this movie is like reading long poem where we got no background/knowledge about the poet and poet's culture. Seriously, this is not my kind of movie.

Da die Erde definitiv untergehen wird, werkelt ein Team fieberhaft an einer Rakete, mit der es auf dem Planeten der die Erde zerstren wird landen mchte, um dort weiter zu leben. Hossa, na wenn das mal nichts ist, dann wei ich auch nicht mehr. Dieser Film ist recht charmant und hat fr die damalige Zeit wirklich groartige Effekte, dass die Story etwas bescheuert daher kommt, hat mich weniger gekmmert. Ich meine, wir produzieren 60 Jahre spter noch immer komplett bescheuerte Endzeitszenarien, wieso soll man es nem Film aus dem Jahre 1951 also bel nehmen? Ich hatte bei When worlds collide definitiv meinen Spa und wer ein Herz fr alte Sci-fi Filme hat, dem wird es nicht sehr viel anders gehen. 3/5
