Three 40-something women in a small English town meet weekly for a ritual of gin, cigarettes, and sweets -- and swapped stories arguing which of them has the most pathetic love life. Kate is headmistress at the local school; her best friends are the town's police chief and a cynical, thrice-divorced doctor.

(us) wrote: A bizarre, unsettling and gripping adult tale - and sadly, another rather neglected gem - from Polish master Jerzy Skolimowski. Based on a short story by Robert Graves, better known for his poetry and the remarkable "I, Claudius"; "The Shout" tied at Cannes for the Grand Jury Prize with the equally batshit and brilliant "Bye Bye Monkey." There's a wonderful eerie Britishness inherent to the action - taking in asylum-based cricket matches and beautiful but barren Devon beach scenery - which is possibly enlivened by Skolimowski's outsider's eye. Certainly in his earlier "Deep End", he tuned in to the weirdness and eccentricities of British society with great effect, and equally disturbing consequences. Alan Bates is a glowering, thoroughly menacing presence as Crossley - and his simmering intensity and credibility is essential to grounding the supernatural-inflected narrative. John Hurt and Susannah York bring their formidable, combined talents to the supporting roles and match him excellently as the couple whose very souls Crossley torments. Equally important and as effective as the players is the film's multi-layered soundtrack - crucial in depicting the central, titular 'shout' of terror as well as Hurt's experimental music-making. The use of sound effects and their genesis drew me to comparisons with the recent 'Berberian Sound Studio' - another strong British not-quite-horror-movie. Other bonuses are a cameo (as Robert Graves himself) from a young Tim Curry and an early appearance from latterday Hollywood stalwart Jim Broadbent; including a quite astonishing half-naked, mud-smothering freakout on the cricket pitch.

(fr) wrote: When Martin Lawrence was trying to redeem himself after his behavior during the first half, the comedy gets better right away as the second half starts. Director Dennis Dugan's take on the buddy cop genre resulted in being not bright in almost every turns, sort of like his films' similar treatments. (B)
