Chris D (fr) wrote: Very Clever Film this one. The plot does seem pretty complex, but the beauty of it is more that it is a pretty simple plot that is very well disguised and thought out ie: you cannot neccessarily predict it at the time but once you find out you do kick yourself a bit for not realising the solution earlier. Added to this there are some wonderful lead performances from Byrne, Scacchi and Eliott. More impressive (at least in my opinion) is the depth of the entire cast- granted none of them are blockbuster names but if anyone has seen the supporting cast names before (Robbie Coltrane, Bill Paterson, Fulton Mackay, Frederick Treves, Ian Bannen) then they'll know that it is packed with excellent character actors. Add a wonderfully dark, sinister music score and wonderful production in general and you have the ideal film really: a fantastic script and fantastic realisation. I will have4 to agree with the previous reviewer here on one point: don't watch this if you want blockbuster thrills or are not in the mood to concentrate a bit. Otherwise I fully recommend this film.

The plot had real potential but got bogged down in awkwardness by the middle, and though the ending was perfectly acceptable it felt a little like hitting a neglected theme note. On the up side both of the leads were very strong. A well acted movie, but even that couldn't save it. Just like Barbara's voice couldn't save the music. Still, there were several truly enjoyable well written scenes, all in the early Yeshiva days, that I wouldn't mind seeing again.

Michael B (ca) wrote: An excellent documentary of the Veitnam War/American invasion, non-narratively stylized to allow you to form an independent opinion, though the spliced images clearly depict a war under false pretense with no true winners. Also, the parallels between policy then and what we see in the Iraq/Afghanistan War/American invasion today is, to say the least, uncanny. One major difference between that war & the one today is you won't see the candid coverage allowed then. The government learned its lesson, now we need to be more vigilant than ever, like the efforts of Wikileaks, to expose the truth.

Hell & Back follows Augie, Curt and Remy discovering The Book of Beelzebub and making a blood oath over it which ends badly and they open up a portal to Hell. In Hell, Curt gets captured by the demons and now it's up to Augie and Remy to save him! After watching the trailer, it seemed like an interesting idea for an animated movie and it looked like it could be funny. The story is interesting and I love the portrait of Hell and Satan in this movie. It's very comical and entertaining, but never really funny. Many jokes fall flat because they're mostly just toilet humour, but there are a few good ones that got me, especially the ongoing background story of Orpheus being raped by a tree as a kid, that was quite a funny addition to the character. The characters aren't well developed and I don't even think anyone watching this kind of a movie would even care for that sort of thing. But, they're entertaining. Again, this movie isn't really all that funny, but it's entertaining! It's good fun. The animation looks great. It feels a lot like ParaNorman at times. The voice-acting was good, though some lines very oddly delivered. All in all, this movie is very fun, has great animation, interesting story and although it's not really funny or anything revolutionary, I'd recommend it to fans of this kind of animated movies.

Brad G (it) wrote: A tonally uneven adaptation of Chester Himes?? classic crime novel, Cotton Comes To Harlem still delivers some solid performances from its leads and a thrill or two from its dialogue heavy action sequences. I really enjoy the ??Back To Africa?? scam at the center of the story and Calvin Lockhart??s corrupt reverend is pathetically villainous. I do wish the humor was toned down a bit (or completely removed) and that we had a straight up gritty crime drama, but there is still entertainment to be had here. Solid, but not mind blowing. VF.
