(fr) wrote: A thought-provoking and profoundly disturbing film that exposes the harmful side of religion and faith, directed with a noteworthy formal rigor in mostly static long takes and with a skillful mise-en-scne that underlines the overwhelming pressure that the protagonist is living under.

(fr) wrote: An entertaining Chinese film about two detectives who investigate a series of deaths in a small village in 1920's China. The film was shot all digital and the image was crisp and clear, making it a joy to look at. There were some great set pieces and I was fully drawn into the mysteries behind the murders and the ending in particular was unexpected. My favorite scene would have to be an explosion toward the end that's edited in slow motion... very cool! A fun movie to end the summer.

(au) wrote: "IN ORDER TO GET THE JOB, YOU MUST ELIMINATE THE COMPETITION" - 'The Employer' is a psychological thriller written and directed by Frank Merle. I've got a thing for films where strangers are trapped in a place and forced to work with/kill each other to make their escape. The storyline appealed me, but now that I have seen the movie, I feel disappointed. Some of the twists are too farfetched and seem illogical. At the end, I still had some unanswered questions. Pity. In the cast we see Malcolm McDowell (a Clockwork Orange, Rob Zombies Halloween) and cameo-role from Billy Zane (Titanic, Dead Calm). How far would you go to get the dream job? Five strangers (three men and two women) wake up in a locked room after being drugged and kidnapped by mysterious men. They don't seem to have anything in common, until they learn that each of them has solicited for a position at the Carcharias Corporation, a large and powerful company. The five receive a telephone call from the interviewer, only known to them as 'The Employer' (McDowell). He explains them that only one of them will be getting the job; the one who's the last person alive in the room...
(us) wrote: Nominated for seven Israeli Academy Awards in 2008, this is a sensitive movie bout the relationship between a suicide bomber and his would-be victims when his bomb fails to ignite. Its interesting enough to hold your interest and tense enough for the viewer to wonder what will happen next.

(ru) wrote: An epic story, with great scenes and great thrills. This is just one of those movies you have to see before you die. Even to this day, it still holds up.
(ca) wrote: I have to say, this was entertaining. I love how the horror in this movie was set, and crazy amount of twists that make this movie gold.
(au) wrote: A good premise with well written characters, but the final act feels a bit rushed. A longer running time would have been welcome if there was more suspense.
