Mark N (mx) wrote: Confusingly edited by the producers and alienating Argento & Brody in the process the movie is an uneasy mix of thematic ideas leaving it a strangely toned affair. Jerking between torture, mystery, kidnap, relationships keeps the movie from ever settling down and the mostly twist-less plot is unsatisfying.. even a discernible sequence of clues leading to the villain would have rote but at least something for viewers to cling to.Without Brody no one, outside Argento fans, would probably watch at all.. worth it to see Brody do his thing but little else.
Ma R (jp) wrote: I was surprised by how much I liked this film. Yes, the acting and production value is somewhat sub-par, but there were moments in the film that genuinely choked me up (and that's not easy). I see this as an early effort by filmmakers that will (God willing) go on to better things.
Andrew S (jp) wrote: There is nothing good about this movie. Mired with hordes of mean-spirited, unfunny situations and jokes, it gets progressively worse through its runtime. The Cranks one day decide to not celebrate Christmas, and somehow this creates a movie. Only because their neighborhood is the most fucking ridiculous pro-Christmas town in America. You'd think Santa himself lived here. Oh wait, he does. Sorry to spoil the very inefectual twist for you that has nothing at all to do with the main plot. All these characters - ALL of them - are unsympathetic assholes. I don't know who I should like. The title couple? No. Luthor parades his anti-Christmas sentiment around town like he's in Hell's parade, and Nora (or whatever the hell her name is) is a fucking frightened child who acts more skiddish and scared in this movie than Jamie Lee Curtis did in Halloween, and yet who still finds time to berate Luthor for random, trifling things. Should I like the neighbors? HELL no.They are literally nothing but bullies the whole film until the Kranks cave and conform to their extremely superficial whims. They and everyone the Kranks interact with are amazing shitheads about spending money on Christmas and doing exactly what is expected with no alteration in plan. Oh, should I like Blair, the Cranks' daughter who joined the Peace Corps? FUCK no. The little fuck is not in most of the movie, and because she's clearly been babied and spoiled all her life with extravagant Christmases, she the reason behind the Kranks caving into the bullying all around them. On top of that, she has a fiance in, what, three weeks? Yeah, THAT'S REALLY FUCKING NORMAL AND RELATABLE, MOVIE, CONGRATULATIONS!Unfunny jokes, truly sickening and distasteful attempts to garner sympathy from the audience, and one of the most hateable cast of characters I've ever seen in a movie make this whitewashed piece of rotten fruit cake worse than three pails of coal on Christmas morning. And that would be really bad because I don't think anyone uses coal anymore anyway.

Jareth S (us) wrote: Japanese dark comedy at its finest. Fans of Scorsese's yuppie nightmare dark comedy After Hours and Schumacher's Falling Down might like this movie about a salaryman who gets tangled up with yakuza goons and goes a bit postal.

Layton J (ru) wrote: Kenneth Williams was always wary of carrying a film, but he carries this film beautifully. His snide character which he rarely used in the Carry On films is in this film in bucket loads. The supporting cats of Charles Hawtrey, Bernard Cribbins and Barbara Windsor support Williams well.
Les E (kr) wrote: Great performance by Davis and Bogart chips in well. Interesting to see Reagan but he was awful. The story excellent and although melodramatic in parts it was never corny.
J B (de) wrote: A searing and raw snapshot of street life and addiction. Giving a very personal account of her experiences with homelessness and drug abuse, Arielle Holmes offers a rare glimpse into a misunderstood world. Directors Josh and Benny Safdie follow Holmes (playing a fictional version of herself named Harley) as she flits from place to place, duffel bag in tow, ready to score her next fix. Drug addiction is routine in her life, but it's an emotional addiction to her abusive boyfriend, Ilya (a haunted Caleb Landry Jones), that proves far more devastating and painful. There's a constant urgency to the junkie lifestyle and Holmes makes it palpable with her ferocious honesty and vulnerability. Filmed with uncommon empathy and authenticity, "Heaven Knows What" is a visceral exploration of the forces that we allow to destroy us.
