(jp) wrote: A decent-enough horror/thriller with some good scares and a great storyline that has some important, deeper meanings concerning faith, society and the evils that pig-headed ignorance can bring out in people. So yes, I'd say that it's worth watching, especially if you're a horror fan. But still, I couldn't help but feel pretty disappointed once it was all over and somewhat annoyed at some of the portrayals of certain traditions that really deserve a better understanding. It could have been brilliant, but at the end of the day, From Within remains merely decent-enough.

I also found the commentary on American society to be very timely. In addition, I found the story and actors charming. Worth a watch.

(mx) wrote: In a series saturated with comically overwrought toughery and action sequences it's refreshing to see an entry that's more self aware. Ryan Reanolds particularly is a joy to behold in all his scenes, the dour tone only making his irreverent quips all the funnier. I would call this a solid B movie, and well worth a watch if you're into gothic action films.
(mx) wrote: I gotta give credit to Brendan Fraser and Alex Wolff...I think they bail this movie out so many more times than I can imagine. It's not that the film is lazy, or doesn't try, it's just that it simply tries too hard to tell a quirky, absurd story. Brendan and Alex sort of help keep the story grounded. I'm not the biggest fan of quirk for the sake of it. That's been my main problem with directors like Wes Anderson. They come up with quirky characters first and THEN they come up with a story that, more often than not, doesn't even really justify the characters being as quirky as they are. If the story you're writing lends itself to a more idiosyncratic approach to the characters, then that's one thing. The Coens have managed to adjust their style to a variety of different genres, whereas someone like Wes Anderson does not. Stylistically, all of Anderson's films are the same. I think that's my biggest problem with films that put quirks above good, solid storytelling. You've seen one, you've seen them all. At least Wes Anderson has a great eye for visuals and interesting presentation of those visuals, and his story. This film doesn't even have that. Not that I can blame them for that, I'm sure the budget this film had was minuscule. It just tries way too hard to be indie quirk. To illustrate this point, there's even a pointless scene of Eli and his friends, his other partners in the quiz show contest, performing a song in the park. Why? No real reason, other than this is an indie film and you do those kinds of things in these films. Even if it doesn't make any real sense in the context of the story you're telling. Yes, the songs these guys are performing does relate to something in the film, but the whole part of them performing the song in the park was utterly and absolutely pointless, unnecessary and pretentious. The film has its moments, but those are mostly visual gags you see for announcements on the TV for lost glasses or a lost bottle of prozac. Nothing extraordinary, but somewhat funny. There's also moments during the actual final competition between the Hares and Harvard, but these are mostly from the commentators, who most likely ad-libbed a lot of that, including the post-credits scene. I just feel that the film didn't really know whether to focus on the coming-of-age aspect of Eli's story, seeing him come out of his shell, becoming the most popular kid in school...or Leo's midlife crisis and him trying to hold on to his youth by going back to college. I think the film has an idea of where it wants to go, it just didn't know how to get there, and it shows. But, I mean, Julia Garner is here and she's always good. I think this has its heart in the right places, but this is an amalgamation of everything I dislike about certain indie films. That's not to say the film is awful, but it's not good either. The acting is solid, but that's about it.

It faces not only the inevitability of death but what happens when your life's love passes on and leaves you behind. The delicate friendship between an older man in pain and younger beautiful compassionate female are shown exquisitely. Michael Cain and Clemence Poesy are perfectly cast for this movie. I was just yearning for Matthew to find peace for his life, and the ending left me a little disappointed. A great film showcasing the beauty of France. Another great movie that got almost perfect ratings on Netflix but "professional critics" on this site hated. Trust me I think if you watch you will connect with it like I did.
(de) wrote: Annette Benning delivers a raving performance, thats unforgettable and mesmerizing!Mother and Child is directed and written by Rodrigo Garca, with an interwoven storyline that has you crying, laughing and hoping for a miracle sometimes. The drama delivers big raves, and plenty of charm in ways you'd never expected. I loved this movie because it had soul and heart (both hard to accomplish). It's true You can't ever know what true suffering is until you experience real loss.

As personagens principais so Edward Norton (bom trabalho embora no ter tido que se esforar demasiado) e Ralph Fiennes (o melhor no filme, com uma presena intimidante e credvel). uma prequela que no chega nem perto do que foi Silncio dos Inocentes, mas agradvel o suficiente para um casual e bom para fs.

(ca) wrote: Since lately I'd found myself growing more and more fond of Sam Peckinpah's films and always a fan of Dustin Hoffman, Straw Dogs sounded too good to pass up. Deviating from many of the more action heavy films of his career, Sam Peckinpah takes a more deep and insightful look into the humanity of manhood than you may expect from him in Straw Dogs. It starts off as a simple drama and gradually builds more and more intensity which distils a certain uncertainty and paranoia in the viewer. The film gets more and more atmospheric as it progresses as well with the music becoming more and more eerie and the actors having their characters develop into more and more complicated figures as they face a thrilling situation which gradually gets to them more and more. You can see that Sam Peckinpah's role as director has him taking a step back and allowing the story to develop naturally through the actors and the job of the editors. He ensures that psychological thrills of the story are all present, but he lets them happen naturally which makes the experience of watching Straw Dogs feel all the more realistic and therefore more chilling. Straw Dogs is a different kind of film to the usual that Sam Peckinpah directs, but it lacks none of the tense grit that he is famous for implementing into so many features which also make so many of his films great. Straw Dogs is a complicated story, so it's easy to see why it is so controversial and shocking in its own time. It came at a time when the darker regions of the human mind were not explored as much through cinema as today, and especially in the year 1971 when a new level of violence was introduced to cinema through films such as this, The French Connection and A Clockwork Orange. Straw Dogs came at a complicated time, but considering just how it changed certain elements of cinema and the depiction of its controversial themes and nature, it is a very important film from a historical standpoint. Whilst it maintains a rather slow pace over the course of its running time, its gradual construction of its intense dramatic aspects grow more and more in power until it hits an incredibly powerful climax. Its extended final act is ripe with intensity and dramatic power which shows the true dark nature of violence without ever glamourizing it, and it is incredible. The final act is unforgettable, exhilarating and gritty one which shows the endeavour of Sam Peckinpah's skill as a director within a very brief timeframe. Straw Dogs is a powerful psychological thriller and its climax is unforgettable. One other unforgettable scene is the rape sequence which instead of being quick and loud allows things to naturally occur. It has no musical score and everything moves slowly and tensely which makes it a slow and uncomfortable experience, and yet it is impossible to divert the eyes. Straw Dogs has a lot of awkward themes which it covers without fear, and so it is really easy to see why it is considered to be one of Sam Peckinpah's finest works.One of the techniques implored by Sam Peckinpah to make things intense from a visual perspective is that the cinematography takes up a lot of very claustrophobic animals, and when this combines with the quick editing it manages to shake the minds of the viewers and leave them in the state of mind the characters are dealing with. And thanks to powerfully fierce performances by the actors it feels or the more genuine and therefore even more fiercely powerful.Dustin Hoffman's performance is an interesting one. It starts off as many of his stereotypical performances do, being sophisticated and calm as he faces the new situations in his life. Yet as the story develops, small aspects of his character become more and more tense as you can see him facing the changing world he grew to be so comfortable in. Viewers will witness Dustin Hoffman growing more and more intense as the situations become more and more shocking to him. The stare which he has at the start of Straw Dogs is stoic, but by the end of it his stare is one of a warrior. As his humanity is stripped down more and more until it reaches the core of his humanistic violent side, his stare eventually becomes the cold look of hate. His simple stare makes it easy for viewers to see into his soul and watch the fighter he has become break free without resorting to over the top action hero antics, and that combined with his realistic line delivery, complex conveying of emotions and his fractured physicality makes Dustin Hoffman's performance in Straw Dogs one of his most different and unforgettable.Susan George's performance is a realistic one since her character has no idea how to deal with the shocking situations she faces, and while she brings a lot of realism to the screen I found that in all honesty I began to grow annoyed at her more and more since her character was unhelpful and wouldn't shut up. I realised that this made it easier for me to connect to the protagonist David Sumner as his stress became increased more and more by her negative attitude and unwillingness to help. While that was good, her character was really annoying so her performance is a good one which may also prove annoying to viewers. That was the case with me, so Susan George is good but she has a pretty thin character to work with.Peter Vaughan and T.P. McKenna also give fierce and intimidating supporting performances which gave a lot of support to the story and made it even more thrilling.So Straw Dogs is a dated film and is a bit of a slow experience, but riding some of the most intelligent and gritty direction available from Sam Peckinpah, a powerful cast and an unforgettably powerful climax, Straw Dogs is a powerful psychological thriller which made its impact on history upon its original release in 1971 and still has the powerful ability to thrill audiences in the modern day.
