It is thought provoking and engaging enough though I found some of the behaviour of the characters unrealistic. However, the performances from Susan Sarandon and (especially) Emily Blunt make this quite entertaining. Overall I think it's interesting enough to be worth a watch for most people. Had the potential to be a better film though.

Drew S (es) wrote: Interesting solely when viewed as an aesthetic antecedent to The Social Network, with its shadowy interiors and pulsing dark electronic soundtrack, but this is a small story that made for a small movie. There's nothing wrong with small movies, of course, but August's ambitions run deeper; it's got some Very Important Things to say about the stock market, and tech, and Faustian power-grabs. Also noble, but when Josh Hartnett delivers a puerile anti-capitalism monologue halfway through the film and is universally applauded for it, the movie's intentions become both clear and undefendable. The movie discourages us from clashing with Tom Sterling's perspective, and even though that big caps-locked HUBRIS stamp ultimately brings him down, it obviously wants us to see him as a misunderstood, insecure bad boy of business. August's ridiculous bias hits its boiling point with an insane, scenery-chewing performance by Rip Torn, where he growls about Oreos and attacks Josh Hartnett with some quasi-Enron "it doesn't do anything if you can't explain what it does" argumentation. See? He's just trying to prove to his grumpy blue-collar daddy that he can work too. Do you guys get it yet? If you don't, we can repeat the scene almost verbatim forty minutes later. It's hard to tell if Tom Sterling is a failed character because of the script or because of Hartnett's performance. He seems to have a rich understanding of the material (he also produced the film), but I think he lacks the range of expression required to humanize this character. Really, despite what August wants us to think, Tom really just comes across as an incompetent asshole. Short of an effortless deflation by David Bowie late in the film, he's actually part of very few substantial events through the course of the story, so there aren't many opportunities to see him react other than trying to overwhelm his problems with sheer bullheadedness. I guess it's a deficiency of writing, for the most part, but the point is that it's a character piece that fails. It's unique, and not a total disaster, but August is entirely skippable.

Mikael K (mx) wrote: Jasmin is a middle aged German woman on a trip across America with her husband. In the middle of the California Desert the couple have a fight and Jasmin decides to leave her no-good spouse. She ends up finding a motel called Bagdad Caf (C) in the void, far away from any discernible civilization. Jasmin settles in, but her silent, not English speaking demeanor proves to be at complete odds with Brenda, the woman who manages Bagdad with her family. Bagdad Caf (C)? is a hit-and-miss endeavor. It works as a story of otherness, celebrating the human potential for adaptation and learning. It explores the relationship between two women who have a completely different personal culture. The clashing of those cultures serves as a source of tension and functions as a representation of a broader phenomenon. The film doesn(TM)t quite live up to the potential of its premise, but it delivers. What really saves Bagdad Caf (C)? is the strong ambience of the setting. The emptiness of the desert, the heat and loneliness of it come across beautifully through innovative cinematography. The motel feels like an isolated reality on the edge of time, granting the viewer an escapist satisfaction.
