(de) wrote: this is a film that is impossible to enjoy. I think that is the point. Absolutely minimalist, with less than 20 minutes of dialogue in a 100 minute film. The austere visuals and sounds create a mood of destitution and hopelessness. A 100 minute film with exactly 100 shots. One minute per shot creates a meditative tone. This is the second part in Van Sants death trilogy. In such a bleak and ultimately banal film, I feel like it's a commentary on life focused on death. The improvised dialogue only increases the banality as the characters have nothing interesting to say. Which is I think the point. It would've been interesting ad a silent film as well. It is polarizing no doubt. And the end only raises the metaphysical stakes.
(kr) wrote: One of my all time favorite movies. This teenage comedy thriller never takes itself too serious and it's this lightness which makes it so fun. The movie starts with a "suspenseful" scene of the gotcha game which quickly turns comic and sets the tone for the rest of the movie. A sexy and young Linda Fiorentino is the icing on this cake.
(ag) wrote: An adorable comedy from the Classic Age featuring the incredibly beautiful Veronica Lake. The rest of the cast was awesome too. Very fun and light and a well-made production.
(gb) wrote: A predictable but enjoyable gangster film elevated by a superb cast.
(br) wrote: Very good low budget horror. With the gorgeous Katherine Isabelle.
