Desire for a subject that functions like a brief fling with no future as such, yet embellished by that very fact. Because something fleeting and futureless is not necessarrily pathetic or trivial. A brief crossing, perhaps an initiatory trip. Filming a guy's "first time", filming him like a girl. Gut level skin deep... Nostalgia for vast ocean liners, for places "beyond the law" where you can venture outside of life, safe within an interlude. Describing a passion while respecting classical tragedy's unity of time and place, setting the stage for the eternal play of Masculine/Feminine. A hot-blooded Latin temperatment versus an apparently cool English one. A ship - one night - Sudden intimacy between an Englishwoman whose complexion is frosted by bitterness and a teenager whose gaze glows like ardent coals.

Cierto que deja ver parte de los problemas familiares pero se queda en pequeos rasguos de esa realidad y se queda tan solo en la superficie del brillo y el esplendor, lstima.

When heavy fog cancels their flight they are stuck spending christmas with their families. Both parents are divorced so they have to go to four houses in one day and the result is outrageously comical. These families will make you appreciate yours. First Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon together were great. The chemistry between them was perfect. They were fantastic together. Plus there's a fantastic lineup of others including Robert Duvall, Mary Steenburgen, Tim McGraw, Dwight Yoakam, Jon Voight, and Sissy Spacek. You will definatly laugh out loud at this one. It will keep you laughing through it most of the time. I just love Christmas movies and this one will lineup to be one of the greats in my collection.

I suppose only someone into the film-making style would agree with me, but "Requiem For A Dream" keeps a relenting pace that only grows stronger as it progresses, and my eyes can never turn away. While the subject matter is extremely somber, there is a jovial essence that is quite abundant. How masterful to make a film so strong in its message and to also have it resonate in your bones afterwards. It's not a wake up call, it's your surprise birthday party disguised as an intervention.

Ben F (kr) wrote: "Diner" ranks among some of the great ensemble cast films of our time. Barry Levinson accomplishes everything he sets out to do in this production. With a great story, and some wonderful acting by everyone, the audience is able to enjoy themselves through scenes of laughter, despair, and especially friendship. "Diner" has it all. There's this special diner. It's a special place to a specific group of men who have been going their for the longest time. It's their home base. The diner reflects their everlasting friendship, and how no matter what happens, they'll always be able to go back to the diner and reflect on their life experiences. Tim Daly, Steve Guttenberg, Daneil Stern, Mickey Rourke, and Kevin Bacon all star in this film. Their friendship is something that feels extremely vivacious and real, thanks to the well done story and script. Over the course of the film, the men feel that they are drifting apart in different ways. The movie doesn't just provide us with all the common senses of joy and sadness, but it structures a commentary on the life experience in general. Like I said earlier, the acting is solid by everyone. Mickey Rourke and Kevin Bacon are a couple of key performers in this movie because they both do an excellent job. The rest of the cast as well was spot on. When you've got great acting, its always a plus. And this film certainly had that. "Diner"does take place during a different time, but its message resonantes throughout history. The symbolism of friendship and courage are relevant to all generations, and this film is able to dictate that mesage to anyone from any time. You don't really get a lot of films like this. I know I'm kind of speaking a little weirdly in this specific review. So let me just say this. "Diner" was highly enjoyable. It had a great script, a heartfelt story, good acting, and a good soundtrack. It's definitely a movie to see. I am certain of that.
