(fr) wrote: Pretty good film but I would not call it a horror film, simply because of the fact that this film is too quiet and incredibly drawn out to the point that all it tries to achieve is an increased amount of tension and suspense, with little to no horror. Yes, there are some small elements of horror to it (especially the intense scene of one of the hunter friends trying to put his other friend's brain back into his head). Other than that, this is a very creepy and quiet film. Very little dialog, very little action; hell, nothing really happens until the 42 minute mark. This is vastly different from West's inventive The Roost film, and I have a feeling that both of these films will differ greatly from the highly anticipated Cabin Fever 2 film, which is great, seeing as West has a gift for entertaining us with dark, grainy homages to a time when movies were damn good. I liked this film a lot, but I can see it doesn't showcase what West is truly capable of. This actually looks like a small thing he shot on his downtime, or from out of boredom. Still, really effective, simple, meat and potatoes film. I would have advised against the constant zooming in and out, as well as the many, many loooong, drawn out scenes. Still effective nonetheless.

(us) wrote: The people in this documentary make me look like a film novice. It also served as a bit of a wake up call to myself. It also made me wonder how 4 of the 5 people profiled in the movie could only watch movies in theaters and not at home. Cinemania profiles 5 extreme film buffs that live in New York. The people in the film sure are eccentric. Most of them live off of disability or unemployment checks and try to watch as many as 5 or 6 movies a day. I think the most I've ever seen in a day is 4 and so far this summer I've seen about 2 a day (not to be mistaken with that stupid show on MTV). The people in this film essentially schedule their lives around seeing obscure and festival films. They've seen their favorites over 20 times and collect all sorts of memorabilia and ticket stubs. The folks in the film are picky when it comes to their seating arrangements in the theater and they nitpick their schedules everyday so they can see a certain amount of films while making it to the theater in time and finding a bite to eat. The most important thing for these people is to schedule an average of 3 or 4 movies per day, but it's not as easy or stress free as it sounds since the film festivals only last a certain amount of time and these cinephiles want to see as many movies as possible. I could relate to the people in this movie since I'm always thinking about the next time I'll be able to see a movie and I'm always trying to see as many movies as possible. In addition, my knowledge of film is pretty exceptional and like the people in the movie I could tell you when and where I've seen any movie that I've rated already, dating back to my childhood. Unlike the people in this movie, I would not sacrifice personal commitments and career goals in order to watch movies. These people take their obsession/love for film too far, but I don't blame them since movies are their calling in life and it seems to be the only thing these people love. This is an interesting and funny movie where my only criticism would be that the movie had some slow moments because the most interesting people were not always on screen. This is a movie that any movie fan would not only enjoy, but also be able to relate to.

(es) wrote: The source of the madness that'd started the original "The Fast and the Furious" in the 60s of different groups of people racing for the spoken treasure from a dying man's breath without a logical fate. This first comedy to be epically-scaled is an entertaining comedic extravaganza filled with clever and fun humor - some are slapstick through weak constructions during accidental destruction - starring well-known actors and actresses that'd met the criteria of being known to make people laugh in that era. But watching them now may be unfamiliar to those who didn't grew up with them, although they'd made funny impressions that were mini treats when watching the feast of a big comedy.

(jp) wrote: The most interesting element of the film is what happened subsequent to its release - nothing. All the elements of a good origin story for a movie franchise or a television adaptation (like "MASH") are there: a compelling main character ("Easy Rawlings") a setup for further adventures and the books of Walter Mosley for plot ideas. Also race, which is an essential element to the story of 1948 Los Angeles, continues to be a compelling social topic. Certainly some inherent challenges may have dogged efforts to bring the stories to the big or small screen. Period dramas, particularly those that necessitate car chases through long gone parts of Los Angeles, are expensive and difficult to stage and film. Also, the deus ex machina character of "Mouse" played by Don Cheadle presents some serious moral problems with his twitchiest of hair triggers. Also some of the attempts of dark humor focused mainly around Mouse in a serious noir are jarring and out of context with such dark material. As a standalone film, "Devil in a Blue Dress"-presumably not originally based on the Mitch Ryder song-garners a lot of unproven claims of being underrated from internet and mainstream commentators. Certainly, the movie entertains as Rawlings unravels a mystery involving murder, politics and Jennifer Beals in an early role against a backdrop of racial inequity in America's golden west. However, all of these elements are employed to far more compelling effect in a movie two years later called "L.A. Confidential." In short, fans of noir or Washington / Cheadle should find this as required reading while others should just go with "L.A. Confidential".
