(kr) wrote: Amazingly sad/beautiful movie. Exceptionally well done. It was really good the way which it portrays the story about the civil rights movement. The musicians chosen to perform the songs were very well selected. It was impressive to see/hear the emotions from all the musicians.

(de) wrote: Next Stop, Greenwich Village passed for its sardonic wit. The story of a struggling young man looking to find his big acting break is not an original premise, but the cast of characters is deep and varied enough to avoid the most trite of cliches. (eg. love conquers all, movie moguls are all corrupt, protagonist seems to lack talent until epiphany strikes) Young Jeff Goldblum plays a bit part, and Christopher Walken a larger and effective role as a bohemian dilettante. The wide ranges of the Village are exemplified in the feast of friends; the actors and play writers, the lovers, the gays, and the suicidal, as is the disapproval of outside communities to the 1950s cultural changes through our hero's disapproving, histrionic mother. While it does not manage to move one's emotions, there is still enough to ponder and thus it passes the Spin.

(br) wrote: I'm all for the surreal, i'm all for the weirdness and lack of traditional narrative structure and coherence; but fuck me this was too much... All of Lynch's signature tropes only work when he writes compelling and interesting characters so we the audience can at least engage in that side of the film which act as an anchor while we navigate whatever fucked up dream like web he's spinning in his movies. Unfortunately, Inland Empire has zilch, zero, none which removes any mystique or artistic integrity of the piece and makes the picture feel weird for the sake of being weird. Not to mention, the camcorder footage makes it feel like a 16 year olds attempt at making a David Lynch movie. I get it's cheaper but my god it doesn't half make everything look cheap. Laura Dern is uncontrollably committed to Lynch's material which is admirable but doesn't serve the picture as the material itself is incomprehensible and feels almost like self-parody in many places. Maybe I wouldn't be so disappointed as well if it was 90 mins or even 120 mins... But this was 3 hours... a long, long, three hours. But at least I can say i've seen it now... Whatever that means.
