(mx) wrote: A superhero film that stays loyal to the comics and makes an enjoyable movie out of it all. Director Sam Raimi's ambitious and surprising breakthrough sees us swinging with Spidey and some great comic book style action and humor, even down to being as animated as it is. At the helm are: Tobey Maguire pulling off both aspects of the web-slinger, Willem Dafoe's hammy performance of the Green Goblin, and J.K. Simmons as the perfect casting of the first reporter of "fake news". This action-adventure blends the drive of many characters alongside the blockbuster action. As a result, Spider-Man not only stands on the shoulders of great superhero films, but also leads us into a new modern era.
(br) wrote: I cannot say with complete acurracy what the movie was trying to go for in its entirety as It deals with many emotions and situations that ultimately help to create this adventurous and dramatic film. It is intriguing, heartwarming, funny, and it keeps you interested all the way until the final 30 minutes when everything is revealed without loosing any of the charm. And thats how I would describe this documentary; charming, well made, well paced, well written, and worth a watch.
(fr) wrote: One line summary: Traditional horror with zero supernatural elements; war is more terrible than fake gore. ------------------------------------------------ The film is full of flashbacks, and one of the early ones was of Kyuzo and all the village dressing up for his departure from the village into the military. Most of the film takes place after Kyuzo is a veteran of the war between China and Japan around the time of World War II. He lost both legs and both arms in combat, his head ss about 40% burned, and he is deaf. His speech is adversely affected by the lack of hearing. His wife Shigeko is horrified with this from the start. She tries to strangle him, but does not have the strength. The villagers honor Kyuzo and his achievements, such as they were, in China. They encourage Shigeko strongly to take care of the hero, the War God. Shigeko learns to deal with his eating, waste, bathing, and sexual functions. She takes care of him, which is an large daily effort, an enormous effort over an interval of years. She also works in the rice fields with the other villagers during the day. He tries to learn to write/draw with his mouth and pencil, starting with 'I want to do it.' She parades him around the village dress in uniform and medals. Sometimes she leaves him in the cart to watch her work in the rice fields. About half way through the film, she really gets into being the put-upon wife, and insists on his performing his responsibilities as well. She gets lots of attention for this, and he gets a taste of all the work (done by others) that he generates. Also, she becomes very conscious of the fact that he can no longer beat her. After some time in this steady state, Kyuzo starts having bad memories of what he did in China. Plus his obligations as War God never seem to go away. By 1945, the war started to come to Japanese soil. The radio in Japan reports something entirely different. Shigeko starts getting inwardly discouraged with the horrible things that have happened. Kyuzo has more flashbacks of his bad deeds in China. Toward the end of the war, she needs satisfaction, but he has trouble even being aroused, since he's too obsessed with the bad memories. She slings back in his face the horrible things he said to her before he left for war. At one point, just seeing the flame in their evening lantern brings back the memories of rotten things he did, and how he lost his limbs. This is when she sings a song about a caterpillar, which is what her husband reminds her of.-------Scores------- Cinematography: 7/10 Archival footage was in out of focus sepia; in other words, it sucked rocks. Sound: 8/10 OK, but not great. Acting: 9/10 Fine. Screenplay: 8/10 The story hangs together well. More cohesion about the flashbacks would have been nice.

I actually sit somewhere in the middle. It's incredibly bizarre, very (possibly deliberately) inconcisent with some odd cases of continuity issues. It's extremely strange indeed, it sways violently from outright disturbing to comical from one moment to the next, contains all kinds of unexplained and odd occurences pretty much from the start to the abrupt end. It borrows heavily from Deliverance, Misery, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, probably others too but it is shot quite well making good use of the countryside and I quite like Laurent Lucas's performance. I found Jackie Berroyer to be a little too out there and found him to be too comical rather than sinister. There is no doubt that Calvaire (The Ordeal) is far from being perfect but I've definately seen worse. It will definately leave you thinking 'What the hell just happened?' though.
