David T (kr) wrote: "A triumph"Severe Clear (US) AKA This Is War (UK) is a compelling documentary shot by Mike Scotti, a US Marine on active duty during the push for Baghdad.His footage is both stunning and harrowing, it's a warts and all account of action as a USMC soldier which a lot of people will find deeply disturbing. Scotti's camera is never anywhere else but by his side throughout the USMCs mission to seize control of Baghdad and the carnage he caught on camera tells the story of how the war unfolded and how hearts and minds was lost before it had even began with the now lawlessness Baghdad ravaged by looting and violence, how from a liberating party they became unwanted law enforcers in a capitol unwilling to have order restored. Word of caution - The battlefield is shown in all it's gore...Be prepared to see detailed footage of dead combatants the like not seen in any other post Iraq war movie.I think it's very easy to lose sight of the situation these men find themselves in when they return from the theater of war...Agree or Disagree with the legitimacy of this conflict but don't punish the folk who went to war and will live with these horrors for the rest of their lives. This is a must see account of conflict...

There's literally no nuance or artistic merit to anything going on in front of or behind the camera. There was supposedly a 20 million dollar budget but it looks like a hallmark movie. There are more times than I could keep count where the actors ran out of breath mid sentence and they just went with the shot anyways. I'm assuming the dialogue and characters are directly transferred from the book. So instead all I can really criticize is the ideology.This is possibly the most sociopathic movie I've ever seen.The government is nothing more than a boogey man, attracting all of the evilest and greediest (although greed is only evil if you're not working in the puplic sector) people in the world. Luckily all of the good people (you know the kind of people that say things like "No you listen I'm taking over this business we jointly own", who try to use sex to rob people, and people who cheat on their spouses) have had exceptional success with their business and have helped grow the economy and made the lives of all Americans better, but not the Mexicans they had to be sacrificed because they were inevitably going to be socialists (yes, this actually happens).The two main characters impose their wills upon the other evil and weak businessmen and are universally successful, unless the evil government is involved. The fact that libertarians leach on to this story is laughable. This isn't libertarianism. This is red pill power fetishism. It's wish fulfillment for sociopathic businessmen, with a complete lack of understanding of the existence class politics.

P. as Leigh drawls and drags herself languidly round through each scene and while it is a solid performance, you can't help but feel that at times she is trying too hard. Still worth the watch.
Sean L (br) wrote: Jackie Gleason, in his final film role, plays the icy, stonewalling father of a hyperactive, professional Tom Hanks. There's a good message at the core of this one, about the impenetrable veneer expected of men from his generation and the dire effects it bore on those around him. Hanks, a smooth-talking corporate '80s ad exec, and Gleason, a foot-to-pavement salesman struggling to deal with the end of his career, manage well with the heavy stuff while occasionally injecting a few welcome dashes of humor and sarcasm to the mix. The film is flawed, though, in its unbridled lack of restraint. Every last supporting character hints at a big, convoluted back story and many of them are halfheartedly explored. That diverts attention away from the key players and leaves us with what seems like one big, fuzzy, unfocused batch of incomplete or unfulfilling arcs. There's simply too much to keep track of, and too much time wasted with characters we don't care about. Noteworthy as the stage where Hanks showed he could be more than just a comic player, but otherwise it's too overstuffed and vague to recommend.

Ethan P (es) wrote: The Homesman is as plain and virtuous as its main character until about halfway through, where it decides it is better than the average movie and adds an interesting twist to the story and puts Tommy Lee Jones character to a moral test. The movie is sad and plain at times, but there are moments of greatness and is a very decent movie.
