The plot is actually ok to a point, there is a big stretch for you to buy into it. The unbelievable saris of events continues to the end. Give it a miss

(jp) wrote: Sidney Lumet has returned to crime, police and the justice system a number of times in his career. His best films on the theme - Serpico, The Verdict and Q&A - have an edgy passion, earnest enthusiasm and shrewd intelligence. Being an actor's director, who develops an ensemble approach to working with actors on set, the performances are often passionate and sublime. This is testimony to Lumet's best films. Night Falls on Manhattan is not one of them. The film is flat and tired. Yes, there are good elements in the film. Richard Dreyfuss is a wonderful surprise here. He does not push the camera, or do his usual "look at me" acting routine, and demonstrates that by doing less he achieves so much more. A wonderful performance. The film is also blessed with a wonderful score that imbues the film with a tragic dignity that the film does not otherwise achieve. These are elements, though, and not enough of them coalesce to make a satisfactory whole. The story is disjointed. I hesitate to say misconceived, because it is clear that Lumet was after the theme of the moral hazard associated with the DA's office. However, after the trial scenes of the first 40 minutes are over, the movie feels over too. Nothing that follows finds the same dramatic force. The pacing is sluggish, and the acting under-rehearsed. This has the odd effect of individual scenes seeming rushed, while the overall pace drags. The acting, for once, does not come off either. Andy Garcia does not find the emotional core of his character. He seems to go to deep emotion too fast to be credible. When he is angry, he shouts. This is from the latter day Pacino school of acting. There is little going on inside, and he does not connect well. He's too strident in almost all scenes, except the couple of delicate scenes with Dreyfuss that are nicely played. Dreyfuss seems to calm and relax Garcia. Who would have thought that? Other actors do not come across well at all. Ian Holm, a fine actor, is playing a cypher. Lena Olin is a blank. This is not Lumet's best. It is, however, sincere, honest and forthright. Lumet does not hide behind a soft ending. He has integrity. If it is not his best, it is part of the canon of a very fine director.
(au) wrote: A decent college romance comedy that is surprisingly more in the former. Seeing the young and talented members of Broken Lizard in their humble origins is, in itself, great to watch. The plot is thin and unlike their later efforts, tries hard to include all the troupe but ends up with bizarre sketchy subplots. There's no witty dilalogue, and there are only a few glimpses of the Broken Lizard humour prevalent in their later offerings. It's excellent first time film making, but only in retrospect. There are some wonderful moments, the character of Freak Reaky certainly needs a resurrection. It's probably best as a stand alone watch inspired by curiosity, rather than a sit down laugh out loud film.

(es) wrote: It still has the original cast, and Jerry Goldsmith's musical score is a multiplying factor for the atmosphere...but this sequel is unnecessary, and often contradictory to it's predecessor's continuity. It's biggest sin though is taking away the faceless horror of the first film, instead presenting it as a stereotypically over-the-top evil preacher.

(jp) wrote: Though Enfants loses pace in its second installment it is still one of the most powerful and ambitious pieces of cinema I have seen. The sheer energy and the elegant pacing and give real weight to the film's theatrical nature. Feels far ahead of its time.
