(kr) wrote: There's some tough going in this Romanian flick, as a lot of time is spent on the details of police work, particularly the surveillance aspects. But the small details lead to an extremely interesting confrontation between boss and police officer involving the meaning of words.

However, I felt pretty indifferent as I saw the film and the ending. I thought 'okay, where does that leave me?' Perkin's 14 involves a sheriff with a distressed family as the anniversary comes when his child was kidnapped. While at the station, he encounters a mysterious man with a past and suspects him as the kidnapper. Hopper then commits law breaking procedures and discovers a secret that engulfs the whole town. I give credit to the writers for making a film that makes an effort to be something. Although I can't recommend, I commend it.
(ca) wrote: Another odd yet effective film from the Duplass brothers. This one feels like it was drawn from personal experiences, which helps in its realistic feel. Quiet moments emphasize the bubbling tension between brothers, capped with outbursts of frustration. The Duplass's prove yet again their true skill at writing.

The concept of an avatar is cool and keeps you interested in the story. Though it's a long movie, I never felt bored. It had a little bit of romance, action (especially at the end), and plenty of eye candy! Going into this movie, I didn't expect it to be bad and I didn't expect it to be great...I can understand why a lot of people like this film. REALLY GOOD! 4/5 OR 8/10

(es) wrote: Many of Tsui's films are thinly veiled analogies offering thoughtful commentary on Hong Kong society and pop-culture. So why do so many people often forget this particular Tsui-ism when discussing Knock Off, Tsui??s second of two English-language films? Set on the cusp of of the 1997 handover, Knock Off is overflowing with Tsui??s subversive nature, and in this film he lambastes and lampoons Jean-Claude Van Damme??s egotistical persona, John Woo??s and Ringo Lam??s special-cams, the ridiculous nature of contemporary HK action cinema, conventions that he helped to create, and the proliferation of Orientalism in the West. Knock Off is a prime example of Tsui Hark being Tsui Hark ?? this film simply could not have come from any other director. And for these reasons I think it is an important film in a the director's filmmography, as well as a film that is simply to fun and ridiculous to ignore.
(ag) wrote: A film that tries for the dramatic thriller, but falls short with its tedious, Japanese culture oriented, gap filled plot. It was funny to have Connery as the fighting master and Snipes as the cop. But the Snipes dominated the fighting scene. This is probably a great example of the book being much better than the movie. Oh and Buscemi made a small random appearance.
(ca) wrote: Although not even eighty minutes long, Color of Pomegranates feels like more than enough film to cover the span of an entire life, much more than enough, like an hour and fifteen minutes more. While I was watching it I thought it would never end, after it had finished I almost forget I had ever seen it. About the only thing Parajanov manages to accomplish here is to establish himself as the poor man's Tarkovsky, all of the pretense but none of the execution. While Tarkovsky truly understood the medium, allowing him to skirt the outer edges of structure without making an ass of himself, Parajanov seems to view cinema as a toy. Jump cut after jump cut allows a feeling of emptiness to creep in, the film making feels shallow, over embellished and even unnecessary. This is a lyrical film, not a narrative one, but the question of rather it was I who couldn't overcome my own sanity and embrace it or if Parajanov's lack of ability is to blame, is to me irrelevant. The answer is likely some combination of the two, and by any event I didn't enjoy the picture. Tangentially, for any Armenians out there, is that really what your language looks like? Was that some kind of absurd font or do you live in Middle Earth? If that really is what your language looks like, when you look to Western Europe and wonder why they're doing so much better than you, perhaps you should blame the man who thought elvish was an appropriate style of alphabet.
