The Monkees are tossed about in a psychedelic, surrealist, plotless, circular bit of fun fluff.

Bad acting, a pretty lame score, even worse cgi-effects and some kind of zombie-make-up made of tartar sauce and red wine vinegar. If you seek for more, don't watch this flick. If you like trash, well, don't watch it either. Unless you're doing a "films I could do with a 30k $ - Budget" - movie night.

I think I just have a high tolerance for Soderbergh's shenanigans; I liked Bubble and The Girlfriend Experience after all. I thought the multiply-nested structure of films-with-films was compelling, and it's also pretty funny.

Hells yes!This is actually a pretty decent film complete with medieval knights, crazy demon things, some gore and action. The story is easy to follow and doesn't get confusing (unlike other Canon films).The budget may be lower than Hollywood blockbusters at the time, but the production pulled everything they could out of the dollars they had to produce this gem.

Akira J (fr) wrote: A fairly good movie. Had to watch it twice to come up with my final conclusion. It's one of those movies where you have to pay attention to things said earlier on in order to understand certain things. The only downside is that most of the characters makes the wrong decision but it wouldn't be a movie if they didn't.
skinny t (br) wrote: The Director of 'Annie Hall' (1977) is a pessimist by nature and his glass is always half empty. Humor and irony, which he uses in his movies, is only a cover for his fear of death and existential thoughts.By making ' Crimes and Misdemeanors' (1989) Allen definitely showed his aspirations to create a great drama. The story of a Judah - a doctor living a double life (wife and a mistress) is getting complicated when the other woman starts to dictate conditions and threaten him. We can see the protagonist struggling between moral dilemmas and questioning existence of God in today's world. Allen presented a person living in lie, who thanks to the crime he decides to commit, lets himself free from making moral choices, problems with wife and social scandal. The movie isa beautiful stadium of human's consciousness and religion.Allen will come back to the story told in 'Crimes and Misdemeanors' and in his other piece 'Match Point' (2005). The Director changed some elements and shifted the weight of the film from moral dilemmas, which took under consideration the existence of The Higher Power and moved it to the world deprived of God and his influence. Even though Judah is not punished by law and his crime remains a secret, we can see his internal struggle and overwhelming guilt. 'Match Point's' protagonist, Chris, does not know the feeling so familiar to Judah - being completely deprived of conscious and guilt, he simply moves on with his life. However, after having a closer look we can easily see that a luck accompanying Chris has a divine element and is not something usual. 'The man who said ' I'd rather be lucky than good,' saw deeply into life. People are afraid to face how great a part of life is dependent on luck', says 'Match Point's' protagonist at the same time, summarizing the story of his life.Many years before Henry James in his novel 'The Wings of the Dove' described a story of a young man who was in love with a woman but could not afford to marry her. At the same time, dying heiress of a fortune falls in love with the protagonist. Everyone is suggesting a fast wedding with sick and wealthy girl which, after her death, will allow him to marry the one of his dreams. The question is - is that ethical? In Allen's world no one has those kind of dilemmas and even sweet and innocent Chloe lets her father 'buy' her a husband. The main problem is the dilemma: greed or desire? Wanting to satisfy desire as well as greed, Chris can lose everything. In the world of moral order, the situation that he became apart of would be accompanied by guilt. However here it was replaced by fear. Money seems to be too strong of an aphrodisiac for Chris, whose 'practical' side wins over love.After weeks of indecisions and anxiety, the protagonist decided to make a drastic step in order to save and protect his wealthy lifestyle. His decision to swipe all his problems under the rug mean nothing else but murdering Nola. Being a conformist and a coward, Chris chooses to exist in the old scenarios than listen to his hear and turn his live around.'You never know what you are able to until you try', says Chris and his words bring to mind the words of Raskolnikow, Dostojewski's 'Crime and Punishment' protagonist. In the novel Rodion kills the old lady and her pregnant sister in order to steal their money and in the name of his theory about people who are destined for incredible things and change reality. He want to reassure himself if he is trash like everyone else or a human. Raskolnikov's crime is based of pretty popular theory dividing people into two categories: lower class people who are only the material bringing, similar to them, to this world and a 'proper' type of people, who have a gift or a talent letting them spread the 'new word'.Chris, the protagonist of 'Match Point' seems to share Rodion's point of view claiming that 'innocent people have to sacrificed for the higher good'. His ' higher good' is belongingness to London's elite and the need to be and feel better than everybody. However, it should be noticed that, in both cases, the desire for wealth and power is not literal - it is mostly caused by the fear of being categorized as trash and a member of 'the lower class'.Woody Allen created his own Raskolnikow - Chris is deprived of moral rules and does not believe in God. Having a religious fanatic, who found the Higher Instance after losing his legs as a father, protagonist is very cynical towards religion and definitely does not consider it to be an important aspect of human life. The pain Chris's father went through made him a different man and helped him become reborn as a new person. Atheist Chris does not go through any changes and does not seem to feel any kind of guilt.Dostojewski's Raskolnikow fails after trying to put his theories about 'unusual people' into action. Defeated by his own beliefs, he decides to admit to the committed crime and atone for it. Being a modern representative of Rodion's theory, Chris kills unscrupulously, without the feeling of evil and, the most importantly, without the punishment.Raskolnikow of the XXI century is deprived of the religious and conscious burden, tormenting his predecessor. Allen does not mention God. He makes his own rules and realizes them. When Dostojewski shows the crime and the punishment, the director seems to present the crime itself. God's and moral rules do not exist in 'Match Point' and the life of protagonists is dictated by luck and fortuity. Chris does not feel the weight of his actions or any kind of remorse - Rodion is on the opposite side, slowly getting into the nervous breakdown. Certain about the rightness of what he did, Allen's protagonist goes back to his daily routine of enjoying beloved opera and dinners at fancy restaurants. However, the last scene of the movie where one can see Chris looking far into the distance, the emptiness of his soul is very visible. There is only a shell- covered with shallow feelings and fake emotions shell.Chloe, who could not get pregnant, right after Nola's murder, announces that she is expecting a baby. Also in this situation, Chris will never be punished and will never understand the evil he made. In the deprived of God's influence, Allen's world there is only luck of its lack. Nola's ghost, haunting him one night says that he made a lot of mistakes murdering her and that he did not plan it very well. Maybe, somewhere deep inside, he wanted to be caught and, at the same time, stopped in his dangerous rush into distraction.The title 'match point' belongs to Chris - he won the game where Nola's, her baby were a rate and his future, were a rate. The price paid for his victory was, according to him, worth the trouble in order to 'achieve something in life'.'Match Point' is the modern story of Raskolnikow. Woody Allens seems to show ' what would happen if...' What would happen if Raskolnikow won over his doubts and fears and did not decide to go to the police? What would happen if Detective Porfiry would not be so determined to find the old woman's murderer? What would happen if Allen created a protagonist being a reflection of Dostojewski's Sonia? And, most importantly, what would happen if the theories claimed by the young Russian came true and gave him the right to dispose obstacles in order to achieve great things?The perfect world for Dostojewski was the one being a part of God's plan, where God's love and mercy embraces even people who do not believe in his existence. Allen's goal was to present the world deprived of the Higher Instance where people are creating their own theories and moral rules. Quoting Dostojewski's novel, the director suggests what could have happened if the story of Raskolnikow ended differently and his 'happy ending' is only apparently good. It is a warning saying that evil has won, and man '... can do everything, if there is no God'.
