Cameraman: The Life and Work of Jack Cardiff

In 2001 Jack Cardiff (1914-2009) became the first director of photography in the history of the Academy Awards to win an Honorary Oscar. But the first time he clasped the famous statuette in his hand was a half-century earlier when his Technicolor camerawork was awarded for Powell and Pressburger's Black Narcissus. Beyond John Huston's The African Queen and King Vidor's War and Peace, the films of the British-Hungarian creative duo (The Red Shoes and A Matter of Life and Death too) guaranteed immortality for the renowned cameraman whose career spanned seventy years.

Kevin P (ag) wrote: While more emotionally based than science based (for better or worse) with less Morgan Freeman and more forced comic relief pelican, I as an animal lover still got a kick out of any of the scenes involving the marine animal members of the cast (which for the most part were actual animals as a relief to my initial cgi fest fears). While not spectacular (aside from the almighty Morgan Freeman), the cast nevertheless does their job well enough to buy their conflict. And while the main two kids can get a bit selfish at times when seeming to WANT another injured dolphin coming in just so Winter won't go to another facility or their bossy demands to be "taken more seriously", this is made up by the main kid taking the big offer to go to the big-name dolphin class as well as the lack of any forced villain. Overall while this isn't as good as the first one, I'd still rather watch a single stalk of corny like this rather than a full-on corn harvest among the likes of "Free Willy" franchise or "Zeus & Roxanne".

Adam T (ca) wrote: Essentially this is the French female answer to 'Brokeback Mountain'. A seductive, erotic coming-of-age movie about a young girl experimenting with her sexuality. Despite some very graphic sex scenes, it actually emerges as a romantic, love story.

Adrian Z (au) wrote: Hungover college drop out Jillian (Jess Weixler) is roped into handing out ice cream samples for a day by a friend in need; a day that turns out to be an eventful one as it sees Jillian's sordid relationship with Danny (Keir O'Donnell) ruined, at the same time as a new romance blossoms with intellectual bar pick-up Tex (Jesse Eisenberg, good but typecast). That 99% of the film takes place around an ice cream trucked parked in a parking lot gives this the feel of a theater play, one that relies completely on Weixler's performance. Luckily, she does provide a great performance, managing to be charming even while being rude to oddball customers and a jerk to visiting friends.

Suanne S (au) wrote: Very intense emotional movie! A true story not for the faint of heart! Butler is extremely wonderful bringing his character to life as Sam Childers. DO NOT listen to the critics!

Quinn Li O (us) wrote: This is such a great movie. Realistic portrayal of a bored, blue collar, drug abusing town with a lovable cast and quirky ending.

Tommaso D (es) wrote: Amazing cinemtography and one of the most original plots of the last decade make Looper a fantastic experience for SCi-Fi lovers.The way Bruce Willis (old Joe) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (young Joe) interact is a pleasure to watch.If wasn't for the flaws that a movie regarding time travel inevitably has, Looper would be oe of the best movies of its genere.

Noname (gb) wrote: Anoter zombie movie but its not like other ones. It have similiar feeling as Stepford Wifes kinda i thought , a bit comedy mixed with some horror scenes but not any scary at all. Okey flick but i prefer Shaun of the dead instead or true zombie movies.

Dee R (gb) wrote: Excellent movie!! great way to handle topic.

Kendall I (br) wrote: I was going for a meaningless zombie flick, but this was just purely awful! PLOT:A group of friends go to a military hodpital (don't know why) and drop a vial containing the virus and it spreads and people start turning into zombies. Totally generic zombie plot. Basic, to say. ACTING:Mostly awful. A few respectable performances, but mostly awful. SCORE:Basic. EFFECTS:Low budget, but not THAT bad. Compared to the original, they suck! OTHER CONTENT:The ending sucked and made hardly any sense. OVERALL, a sucky zombie horror with bad acting, basic score, and a generic plot. Only positive: some effects.

Phil P (fr) wrote: "Sex and death. Two things that come once in my lifetime."My third venture into Allen's film library, 1973s 'Sleeper'. Having seen three movies now it's clear (up to the 90s at least) that he doesn't venture from his comedy style - at all. It's similarly abstract to 'Bananas' in jokes and plotting. Hilariously so, with a more slapstick type approach this time among the witty lines.'Sleeper' is set 200 years after 1973 where all women are frigid and men are impudent. 'Allen' plays 'Miles Monroe' a man who's thawed out of cryogenic sleep by some doctors in order to help a group of revolutionaries overthrow a dull, dictatorship leader. Of course he goes on the run and ends up running into 'Luna' (Diane Keaton) and together they impose a plan to take the leader down. It does show off Allen's entire comedic sense with ridiculous visuals - in the form a giant bananas and being beaten with a large strawberry. As well as the ludicrous conversations.There's less of the rapid fire nature here than in 'Bananas' with more of the physical stuff taking over. An orb that gives out some sort of drug and the use of orgasm machine. Not to mention a hilarious chase with the police and 'Miles'. Almost all the jokes hit, visual and verbal - however towards the end it ran out of steam a little bit for me. Even with that and less jokes this is probably the best of the bunch do far. With big ideas, from a world view point and the striking absurd visual comedy. I'll never forget the fight with the various fruits or the pump action rocket launcher. It all puts a smile on my face.

This movie is so bad that it must be a parody; I cannot believe that the filmmakers were serious while making this. This movie is a piece glittering shit that you must hold in your hand and keep gazing at it completely entranced, all the while knowing it smells really, really bad. I don't know how to rate this movie because it was so bad that I enjoyed it. I am so confused.I want to give it half a star because it was so bad, but I also want to give it four stars because it was so bad that I liked it. I guess I will just average it.
