Tim B (br) wrote: This movie gets points alone for how ridiculously unique it is. I've seen a lot of movies in my time and this is definitely the first movie of its kind that I've ever seen in how it was filmed. That said, the nods and references in this flick were right down my alley. It presents itself as an homage to Giallo flicks of Argento's and Bava's. And while there's plenty of that going around; there's also a very different type of storytelling as well. Think that of a David Lynch movie with even less dialogue. Needless to say I was entranced for the majority of this flick. As I've said before; usually the less dialogue in a film, the better. Amer takes it to a whole new level. There are extreme symbolic closeups of lips, items, set pieces etc and the sounds consisted of music, sighs, whispers and ambient noises. With that said, there is still a pllot here and I got a lot out of it. I can't promise you the same thing. It's just my taste in film, really. But I will say that there is a lot to get out of it for those who want to WATCH a flick of this ilk. Helene Cattet and Bruno Forzani kept to a Lynchian vibe in the sense where I wasn't fully aware of what exactly was happening in this film, but I brought my own to it and got a lot out of it. I also must congratulate the edit as this one must have been a bitch to work on in that department. I'll keep the acting comments short; everyone did an excellent job but I will say that Charlotte Eugene-Gubbaud was by far my favorite performer in my favorite story of Ana (the movie follows the character in three stages of her life; girl, teen, adult). On the slight downer, the last act in the third story did overstay its welcome and didn't know when to quit. I will admit at that stage I was starting to check the clock and telling the flick to hurry up. They also felt the need to overdo it with the panic/hyperventilating sounds at some parts of the picture. It annoyed me after the 10th or 12th time. But nevertheless, this is a movie that had me thinking about its structure and story days after I watched it. It's definitely not for everybody but if you're a film nut looking for something different (and I mean different) with edgy subject matter, this is the one to look for. A second watch is due for this twat very soon...

Bill B (de) wrote: Finally crossed a major blindspot off the To-Watch Pile with this one, and a big notorious erotic 'classic' for my Movie Shame Monday selection. Very watchable, but also distracting at turns with the more explicit material that found its way into things due to producer interference.Worth a look.
Ken S (es) wrote: After the mixed bag of "Marnie" and the two mediocre Cold War thrillers, Alfred Hitchcock returns to form and directs a film that proved that even in his old age (his 70s), he was still the Master of Suspense in the 1970s. "Frenzy" marks Hitchcock's final return to filmmaking in his native country, and it is a fantastic thriller. A serial killer is on the loose in London, raping woman, strangling them with his necktie and then ditching their nude bodies. A Regular Joe gets accused of the crime after his ex-wife, and then his current girlfriend, is murdered by the killer (who as it turns out is the accused man's friend). It is a fine thriller with suspense throughout and a nice touch of that classic Hitchcock humor that make his films so memorable. It is also one of the most gruesome and explicit films that great director ever made. After years of insinuation, he decides to play along with the times and shows explicit violence and nudity, it makes the subject matter all the more shocking and frightening. Also, unlike "Marnie", the creep who rapes a woman isn't our hero, which is much more acceptable for me. "Frenzy" is an excellent movie, and I really got a kick out of it.

Kevin R (ag) wrote: I came here to get drunk and chase girls A group of military men are allowed four days leave to party and enjoy themselves. They obtain a hotel room and quickly after arriving, the leader of the group, Andy Crewson, meets a girl. He wants to spend as much time as possible with this girl but numerous people keep pressuring him and his friends to provide reports on the war. Will the men ever be able to relax and enjoy themselves? "Any sharks?" "Just one, probably a female by the way she nuzzled me." Stanley Donen, director of Give a Girl a Break, Funny Face, Charade, Two for the Road, Lucky Lady, The Little Prince, and Blame it on Rio, delivers Kiss them for Me. The storyline for this picture is fairly straightforward and limited. The display of the troops on leave was interesting, the script was well written, and the cast was marvelous. The cast includes Cary Grant, Jayne Mansfield, Leif Erickson, and Suzy Parker. "Everybody is selling things to everyone else." I am a huge Cary Grant fan and came across this picture the other day and had to DVR it. While I enjoyed this picture, I did not feel fulfilled by the conclusion. Ultimately, I believe Grant remained a playboy and never returned to Parker's character. Overall, this is definitely worth seeing as Grant delivers another captivating performance; however, this is definitely not his best picture. "True love always fades but money stays green." Grade: B-

Art S (mx) wrote: Cronenberg = Disturbing. I didn't like his previous film (Cosmopolis) which I found incoherent and boring. This one also seemed to start out with the explicit goal to confuse viewers (which isn't always a bad thing), but once I got used to the fictitious characters referencing fictitious Hollywood stars and movies (alongside some real references and a cameo by Carrie Fisher), then I had a handle on it. Julianne Moore is not playing herself (perhaps far from it) but shines as an aging star with lots of problems and an outsized ego who hires Mia Wasikowska as her personal assistant. The latter (a burn victim) also has a lot of problems, possibly originating with her parents, but she is apparently out to Hollywood to escape them. Apparently. A separate thread sees Julianne's therapist John Cusack and his wife managing their 13 year old child star who has already been in rehab for drugs - he's got a foul mouth and clearly too many adult experiences already. Seeing these children talk about sex and drugs and money is unsettling. The screenplay is credited to novelist Bruce Wagner and it seems to actually have some themes - in the special features, Cronenberg argues that Hollywood is like a black hole to which characters are inevitably drawn to their doom (my paraphrasing). This may be true but there is an entirely deeper level of screwed up going on here too.
