Paris 1913. Coco Chanel is infatuated with the rich and handsome Boy Capel, but she is also compelled by her work. Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring is about to be performed. The revolutionary dissonances of Igor's work parallel Coco's radical ideas. She wants to democratize women's fashion; he wants to redefine musical taste. Coco attends the scandalous first performance of The Rite in a chic white dress. The music and ballet are criticized as too modern, too foreign. Coco is moved but Igor is inconsolable.

The connection between that book and this documentary is not epilepsy but what each reveals about how rotten things are in this state, the US. Carl Colby created a portrait of great delicacy that is as much -- perhaps, more -- about his mother and the nature of both the CIA and the government in the second half of the 20th C as it is about his father. In fact, despite the nearly two hours running time, we are less aware of who William Egan Colby was than we are of who his wife was. Whether director Carl purposefully lit the set and controlled his mother's make-up or whether her fading at the end of the film was due to taking her testimony in a single shot is a question I would ask Carl Colby. For me, the true cost of being married to a "spymaster" showed in Barbara's face and her grooming. At the beginning of the film, she appears as a handsome and well-groomed older woman, typical of educated women of her generation. She is dressed in an expensive brown suit, with perhaps a paisley pattern, with a yellowish blouse sometimes peeping from the neckline. Her face is calm and poised, colored only by delicate, pink lipstick. The audience hears that she put her husband through law school. The audience hears that her husband's colleagues consider her the source of his success. The son describes them as a team. During her final appearance, her face seems heavier, the lines more obvious. The delicate lavender-pink lipstick is almost gone, leaving her mouth crumbled in appearance. Through her faded lipstick, she announces how, after nearly 40 years of marriage, William Colby asked for a divorce. Whether this brilliant symbolism was planned or accidental, the faded makeup of the loyal wife reveals how little anyone knew of this man who could smile on cue and testify before Congress (at a time when Congress was a strong and active participant in government) and say nothing.

Tim S (kr) wrote: While I wouldn't call Blackbeard a terrific and successful television movie, I would call it an admirable effort. The thing that really makes this film work is Angus Macfadyen, who I think does a pretty good job with the character. The film is a bloated three hour epic with a television budget, but I think they did the best that they could with what they had. The film also stars Stacy Keach, Richard Chamberlain and the lovely Jessica Chastain, prior to her success with The Tree of Life and Zero Dark Thirty. The film does feel a bit sanitized and doesn't find a clear focus, but there's plenty of hard work put into it. It's not the most interesting film you're ever likely to see either, so if you don't like swashbuckling movies then it probably won't be your cup of tea anyways. It's not a poor effort, just not great when it comes to the final product.
Patrick L (br) wrote: Considering the premise, even for horror films, it is amazing this has been made once never mind more than once. A group of nurses (led by a rather callous if not evil leader - a blonde for that matter) force one of their own (a friend?) to endure being naked and entering a dark cellar-like space. This woman ends up becoming a victim of a phantom(?) killer named "Bloody Mary". The victim's sister then comes to investigate her disappearance (death?) and barely survives her experiences. Not a very satisfying film, though there is nudity to entice those who love seeing naked people. I originally rated it "so-so" without any further comment...

Matt S (us) wrote: Defiantly not as big or flashy as the first movie. All this one is meant to do is be the feature length pilot of the Turbo Season of Power Rangers. On that standing does it do that well....sorta. You are introduced to characters and it takes a while before anything really happens and for a 90 minute movie that is pretty bad. There is something here to enjoy but I can't quite say what it is. Maybe the special appearance by the original Pink and Red Rangers but even that is a wasted opportunity. If you are really craving some Power Rangers you could check this out but if you want a faster paced movie, go watch the first.

Steve W (au) wrote: Not even Bunuel knows what directed and what it means, but this movie could have been a lot better without the ending church scene. It just raises more questions than it could have answered. The Exterminating Angel is a cinematic puzzle, full of satire, wit, and no easy answers. This is definitely one of those movies you take in again a few years later down the road to get a different perspective/angle.

Its extremely morbid, bloody and erotic and keeps to the Vampire tradition. I hope Hollywood don't get wind of this, other wise a remake is inevitable.

John A (ru) wrote: The Western Genre Had Died In The 70's, Although Efforts To Revive It Failed, Most Turned Out Quite Enjoyable & Had A Pretty Decent Stab At It Anyway. Director Christopher Cain's Young Guns Falls Into This Catagory, With A Great Sense Of Direction, Storytelling, Script, Action Sequences & Performances From It's Leading Cast, It's Sad That 4 Out Of The 6 Outlaws In The Film Are Easily Recognisable As The Other 2 Give In Great Performances. The Film Focuses On The Rise Of Billy The Kid (Emilio Estevez) & His Gang Of Outlaws (Kiefer Sutherland, Charlie Sheen, Dermot Mulroney & Casey Siemaszko) As They Take On Corrupt Banker & Politician Lawrence G. Murphy (Jack Palance). An Enjoyable Western Which Gives A Decent Bash At The Revival Of The Genre. Also Features Western Veteran Brian Kieth & Son Of John Wayne, Patrick Wayne As Pat Garrett, The Man Who Eventually Hunts The Kid Down.
