Elevator to the Gallows
The feature-film debut of famed director Louis Malle is an interesting, modern film noir with the classic theme of lovers plotting to kill the husband and make it look like suicide (reminiscent of The Postman Always Rings Twice). Jeanne Moreau gives an astonishing performance, perverse but naive as she leads her young lover down a path that can only lead to doom for both of them.

(es) wrote: As Anna goes, so goes France! Or some shit. A nine year old girl weathers her affluent family's shift toward leftest politics along with the rest of 1970's French youth culture. Little Anna's fear of change manifests in her traditional attitudes towards religion and social class. Costa Gavras' daughter makes her directorial feature film debut. It's a nice flick. Sometimes honest, sometimes hokey and obvious, but through it all Nina Kervel-Bey, who plays Anna, is amazing as the (mostly) conservative child in a Allende supporting anti-Franco family. As a scowling little brat, she's aces, but she has real range too. And her little brother has to be one of the most entertaining young kids I've seen put on film in a while. Totally worth watching.

(us) wrote: This movie gets five stars for having fly Renee Goldsberry and fly Lisa Raye in it! Vanessa Bell-Calloway had a few lines in this movie. It was funny to see Lou Myers play Toomie, the owner of the club. He played that role the same way he played the role of Mr. Gaines on A Different World. Of course this movie had to have a fairytale ending just like most other love story movies. Debbie Allen has acted much much better in other movies than she did in this one. Chris Spencer needs to go back to hosting late night talk shows and stop acting. Overall, this movie had no sex, no violence, and no profanity. There was just a lot of mediocre singing and performance in this movie.

(es) wrote: It sure was entertaining but man was it too long! The plot was okay I guees, but some of its central storylines never managed to win me over and I had an issue with them thoughout the movie. It was more of a romance than I could use and I really had a sense of not knowing what to think of the characters. It was fine,but not really what I would have wanted it to be.

(us) wrote: Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's 16-year old esque writing makes the plot rely too heavily on cliche arguments, film references, religious traditions and it seems that 90% of the film is about fat guys fighting over food and water inside the same single house.
