(jp) wrote: Based on Philip Roth's Pulitzer prize-winning novel, this is an ambitious awards-season drama about the disintegration of an all-American family who seemingly has it all as a result of political activism in the late 60s. Judging the film on its own merits as I have not read the book, this is a glum and subdued film that refuses to provide easy answers or resolutions and as a result, I suspect it somewhat buckles under the weight and seriousness of its subject-matter in its transfer from paper to screen. In the film's condensation of the main narrative which took years to unfold, some plotting are frustrating and misguided while other less important strands are underwritten. The bookend scenes with David Strathairn's Roth surrogate, the narrative relevance of which puzzles me during the film for example, feel unnecessary and mishandled after a quick bit of Wikipedia research illuminated what the original written version was. As difficult as these conditions make it, it actually isn't Ewan McGregor's directorial abilities that's the main problem. In fact, as his debut effort, he shows competency, passion and a good eye for visuals that impact and work in the context here. What doesn't work for me is his portrayal as the grieving father struggling with his internal conflicts, except for one last scene towards the end when he finally connects emotionally. As a piece of drama, it borders more on the side of melodrama and as a reflection of an innocent age that we've since lost, it lacks the appropriate pathos for it to resonate with its audience.

I did think it was funny that the movie is in English with German actors who would all be much more comfortable speaking in German. Overall, I enjoyed it. It had a real aura of strangeness. It reminded me of something like Pin and seemed include very much by Georges Franju's Eyes Without A Face. I would watch it again.

(ca) wrote: A romantic comedy that ceases to be guessed. Coupled with a new timely idea and a fun Corky script this movie will leave you laughing and crying all at the same time. Good work!

(fr) wrote: George Hamilton plays a handsome jewel thief in this very 1960s looking heist film, but it's all pretty bland. It's nowhere as stylish as say, "Danger Diabolik" and it's nowhere is suspenseful as any number of similar Jules Dassin jewel heist films. You do get Zsa Zsa Gabor, Carroll Baker, Lilli Palmer all playing themselves in the film and being robbed by Hamilton, but that's really not a reason to watch this film. Watch "Topkapi" or "Rififi" instead.

Whether it?s the villain ([i]The Matrix[/i], [i]Terminator[/i]), or the victim ([i]A.I.[/i]) it?s a hot topic, especially with the recent emergence of AI prototypes. What will become of our society and our humanity once they become ubiquitous? These are the issues that the creative but ultimately unsatisfying [i]Robot Stories[/i] poses. Told in four separate stories, the film opens with a vignette about a childless couple who want to adopt, but first they have to pass a parenting test. To ensure that they will be good parents, they have to care for an egg-shaped robot ?baby? that will record how well or poorly it is taken care of. Things begin just fine, but soon the wife finds herself becoming abusive like her mother before her. Breaking down, she realizes her failure, but the robot baby coos and comforts her, and then she begins to really love it. The second vignette is BORING. A genius computer programmer is in a vegetative state which forces his mother to come to grips with how she raised him, and she ends up becoming obsessed with his toys in an attempt to get close to him. The third vignette is aptly titled ?Robot Love? where a humanoid office worker observes the office romances and adapts his personality to make room for that in his own life and falls in love with a ?female? humanoid worker from the next office building which culminates in a love-making scene where they push each other?s buttons to climax. Yeah?okay. The fourth vignette is by far the best. In the near future people don?t die, instead, they upload their consciousness into a computer mainframe which lets them still interact with the world via a holographic projection. A dying sculptor struggles with his desire to experience life as it was meant to be and being with his wife who is always with him via a holographic projection. It?s very interesting in that it questions what makes us human, but this story isn?t enough to salvage the motley array of futuristic visions.
