Though its aftertitles detailing the history of French nuke experiments suggest otherwise, writer/director Marion Hänsel’s Black Ocean is not a political treatise or a history lesson, instead taking advantage of the remote, isolated environments in which the experimentation took place – as well as the monumental imagery of the act itself – in order to communicate a more universal story about the power of awe. Ocean principally follows three young sailors on a French naval vessel in 1972, who are on course for an unknown destination in order to help carry out the bomb tests they’ve yet to personally witness. The film is essentially divided into two parts: before and after the blast.
Three young boys aboard a French naval vessel in 1972 take part in nuclear tests in Mururoa, in the Pacific. Black Ocean explores about the relationships of the men on board who are ... . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

This documentary delves into who Bobby Fischer was and the troubles he had dealing with people. It features many people key in his life as well as reams of archival footage.

You pretty much grow to love Marketa in this docu. She's so smart and knowledgeable. Glen on the other hand, seems overly emotional. I knew he was, he's a poet, so obviously he is... but he's REALLY emotional. It pretty much rules his life. And that's a little sad to see.

He encounters a female, Annabelle, with the same ambitions. They work together with a bounty hunter lawman in unique ways to achieve their goals."Look at that card!"Richard Donner, director of The Omen, Superman 1 & 2, Lethal Weapon 1-4, Assassins, Conspiracy Theory, Radio Flyer, and The Goonies, delivers Maverick. The storyline for this picture is mainly for comedic content with some clever lines and sequences. The acting is okay and the cast includes Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, James Garner, Alfred Molina, Graham Greene, James Coburn, Clint Black, and Denver Pyle."Your security isn't worth a damn. Everyone has a gun."I must have watched this a hundred times growing up. This is one of those movies that was constantly on HBO. I came across this on Netflix and decided to watch it again for the first time in a long time. This is still good but not as good and clever as I had remembered. This is worth viewing but a bit cheesy in scenes. "Don't let Maverick reach the game."Grade: B/B-

Hatem A (kr) wrote: 3.5/4.0A daring movie-making experiment (even by today's standards), Hitchcock's "Lifeboat" takes place entirely on a tiny boat in the Atlantic that has eight American and British survivors of a ship torpedoed by a Nazi U-boat. Their situation is complicated when they pick-up German survivor Willy (Walter Slezak who is great here adding an eerie feel to a seemingly nice character). Notable for its choice of the most unusual central character - pampered female American writer/photographer Constance Porter (played with perfect grace and nuance by Tallulah Bankhead). A great showcase of the growing desperation of the eclectic bunch as the days go by and how their suspicions fluctuate over their seemingly likeable German boat-mate. Only flaw is that not all characters are equally compelling/developed. Nominated for 3 Oscars: Director; Writing, Original Story; and Cinematography.
