(au) wrote: A very fascinating and likable film, much like its subject.
(kr) wrote: A gripping and unsettling thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat - quite an achievement by a first-time director with minimal budget. The story is somewhat confusing and plays on the viewer's expectations, with the ending being a cleverly set up trap that leaves you with a bunch of questions and no way to answer them.

(fr) wrote: This was something else. It was unique and intense. Rooney Mara is so very talented. I was truly impressed by her character. She is intimidating and brilliant yet so very vulnerable. The plot twists in this film definitely keep you on the edge of your seat. If you won't be too uncomfortable, this film is definitely worth seeing.
(au) wrote: Ambitieux film francais, c'est suffisamment rare a souligner. Le peche mignon de Boukhrief, c'est de ne prendre que des comediens chevronnes. Du coup le defile de seconds roles connus du cinoche francais en malades d'Alzheimer ou en personnel soignant de la MAPAD est moyennement credible. Mais c'est pas mal quand meme ce thriller en maison de retraite, avec Dussollier tres bien.

(fr) wrote: "Mandragora" refers to a plant and could refer to Marek (Mirek Caslavka) who leaves his home with this strict father to pursue a fun life in Prague. Within minutes, he's robbed, loses his winnings at a slot machine, and finds himself, unwillingly, in prostitution. Director Grodecki maintains a consistent judgmental tone throughout the movie about what a terrible life these underage male prostitutes face. A life that denigrades into drugs, violence and AIDS (death). I assume some viewers will have enough after a few minutes since you get the point early and there's no redemption to the story. Those who stay to watch like me, will get the lessons of lives lost, how ineffective the cops are, and despite the fact Prague is supposed to be a beautiful city, that's it's an immoral city since the violence is so persuasive. It's more of a documentary drama with actors who look like they live on the streets and are improvising the script. Although, the movie is well done and a respectable effort as shedding light on a social problem, it does so with a sledgehammer.

(jp) wrote: The title could better be translated "Without Roof or Rules." This is my 2nd Agnes Varda Film. I was really emotionally affected by Cleo 9 to 5. In this film Vagabond Mona is broke, alone & young female leading an isolated existential hobo life. In winter in the south of France, a young woman is found frozen in a ditch (Mona). She's unkempt, a vagabond. Through flashbacks & brief interviews, we trace her final weeks, as she camps alone or falls in with various men & women, many of whom project their needs onto her or try to give her life direction. She squats in an old house smoking hash with a man, falls for a Tunisian laborer & works beside him pruning grape vines, stays with a couple shepherding goats, meets an agronomist trying to save plane trees, gets tipsy with an old woman, & has an offer to appear in porn films. The story of 18-year-old Mona Bergeron (Sandrine Bonnaire) is told to us by Varda in almost documentary style & in reverse order. To most the people she encounters she means freedom to them as they seem trapped in their own lives & existences. To others she is merely a pawn to be used. Maybe Varda based this on someone real she knew in her own life. It really is a meditative evocative film. It is very powerful in its scenes of few words. It is quite the tale of human loneliness. Mona is part of all of us but she is strongly incapable of love & unwilling to thank people for their efforts to help her, yet Varda is objective regarding her "heroine". I question Varda's intent: is it to ask ourselves how Mona was influenced in her life to get to this mental state? Varda makes no apologies as she follows Agnes Varda in her downward spiral. Varda may be the least-appreciated great filmmaker of Europe's golden age. After this film Varda concentrated only on making documentaries. Like Citizen Kane, this story tries to piece together other people's impressions in an attempt to give a coherent picture of someone's life including the ghastly end of it.
(ag) wrote: Maybe it's just my interest in psychotherapy (and the issues around it) or my captivation at Richard Burton's voice, but seeing Equus was definitely a good decision. The mentally ill and those others who've spent many hours with a therapist would do well to give this a look, so long as they don't mind being a bit rattled by the end.
(de) wrote: Carol Anne (Heather O'Rourke) is followed by evil spirits again, this time embodied by the ghost of the evil preacher (Julian Beck, creepily effective) who caused the haunting in the first place. When compared to the first film, definitely a case of diminishing returns, with weaker plotting, and mawkish sentimentality galore, but top notch special effects, some terrific scenes, and strong production values keep it afloat.

(es) wrote: There's not much of a story here: cowboys drive a herd of cattle from the Rio Grande to Abilene, so the characters and their motivations become nearly the whole magilla, the reason to watch this. Now while the whole cast does pretty okay with the material (particularly Walter Brennan as the sidekick) its Wayne that carries this motion picture as a man gone bad because one stupid moment of pride costs the woman he loves her life. The rest of the picture is how everyone he knows tries to deal with him seen through that tragedy. Years later George Lucas will try to assign his chief claim to fame (Darth Vader) a similar rationale for evil but, believe you me, its done a 100 times better here. And good guy Wayne's take on twisted is only a warm-up for what comes later in John Ford's The Searchers.
