In the White City
A Swiss sailor jumps ship in Lisbon, tired of the noisy engine room, the ship "a floating factory of crazy people." He rents a room and does little. He writes letters to his lover, describing the whiteness of the city, the solitude and the silence. He sends his love and emptiness; she replies with love and confusion. He sends movies from his 8mm camera. Then he becomes friendly with Rosa, a chambermaid, and soon it's a love affair. He continues to send letters and movies home. His Swiss lover is hurt and angry; she sends an ultimatum. Written by jhailey

(fr) wrote: interesting but not the greatest story.
(ru) wrote: Unfortunately the Georgians have only this movie to provide a fictional account of the Russian invasion of their territory. It is a Michael Bay treatment which removes most of the gravity of the actual situation. A shame.
(br) wrote: Pretty slow to be honest and some very unnecessary scenes. The rape scene n the dead cat scene.. What the fuck?. Is that even necessary.?? I hate seeing that kind of shit. Otherwise Good actors n over-all plot (but like I said it was drawn out).

Ele um assassino profissional, mas com certas regras: s mata aqueles que verdadeiramente merecem, ou como diz, 'No Mercy for the Rude'. Dedica-se a isto por precisar de dinheiro rpido, dinheiro que necessita para uma operao. Seu problema? Killa tem a lngua curta e no consegue falar. Cada vez que tenta abrir a boca, sente uma enorme vergonha, mas sua destreza com as facas o ajudar a ser um dos melhores na profisso. Quer poder falar para dizer a sua paixo de infncia que a ama, precisando antes disso tambm encontr-la.O filme est narrado a partir de seu ponto de vista, com uma contnua 'voz em off', que nos leva a compreender, conhecer e amar o personagem, interpretado aqui por Shin Ha-kyun, que em 'Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance' j havia interpretado um mudo que comete atos imorais por necessidade . O resto dos personagens do filme so igualmente complexos, desajustados e bem interpretados, como a prostituta de passado trgico ou o colega de Killa que se transformou em matador aps ter machucado o joelho e perdido a chance de virar um bailarino de sucesso.

(us) wrote: Not bad, the plot to the movie is unique and original, however the script and directing is not so well, definitely worth your time to see
(kr) wrote: So many quotable moments, this movie brings a cool vibe to any twenty something looking for their next phase in life. The young days of John Favreau and Vince Vaughn are highlighted here, with two hip dudes out on the town in search of ladies and a wild night life. I recommend this movie to any and everyone. "You're so money, you don't even know it."
(es) wrote: This is probably the best performance you'll find of Anthony Hopkins before his "Silence of the Lambs" days. It's a very suspenseful tale. PLOT:Corky (Anthony Hopkins) is a magician and card-trick master. After performing for the first time at a club, he bombs and is told by his mentor to get some charm. Ten years later, Corky's agent named Ben Greene a.k.a. The Postman (Burgess Meredith), brings an NBC talent scout down there to see his new act. Corky now performes his tricks with a little ventriloquist dummy named Fats (also voiced by Hopkins), and it hits with the NBC scout. However, Corky won't take his chance at fame because they demand for a medical exam, which he won't go through; he refuses to admit that there's anything wrong with him. He flees the city and takes refuge at his old school crush's place, Peggy Ann Snow (Ann-Margaret). Things start to get crazy when Fats starts to actually talk back to Corky, telling him things such as to kill. It's a decent plot executed fairly well. ACTING:The performances in here are pretty great, I'd say. Anthony Hopkins plays a very great part as the schizo ventriloquist and magician, Corky. For a pre-Silence performance, I'd say he did very well. The other shiners would be Ann-Margaret as Peggy Ann Snow, Burgess Meredith as Ben Greene, E. J. Andre as Merlin, and Beverly Sanders as the laughing lady. I just don't think Ed Lauter did a good job as Duke, Peg's husband. His role seemed someone bland. SCORE:The score was pretty freaky and distinct. I'd say it was pretty well done. EFFECTS:The effects didn't really look too realistic, but they got the job done, and they got it done well enough. OTHER CONTENT:This, of course, isn't the best horror movie out there, but it does have a few good aspects aside from it's great performances. This movie is filled with suspense from top to bottom. You could even cut it with a knife, I'd say. It was also very dark with its humor, and even very wry and clever. You could very well watch it for its humor as well as its suspense and scares. However, I could see that much more could have been done with this idea that was overlooked. This left it somewhat bland and unorganized, not to mention the editing was kind of sloppy. It's not the best horror movie, but it's worth a watch. OVERALL,a great horror movie with a decent plot, great perfromances, freaky score, accomplishing yet unreal effects, lots of suspense, and clever dark humor, but so much more could have been done with the plot and editing.
(mx) wrote: definitely good...just as a warning though, there is some stuff in there you'll want to fast-forward thru if you don't like nudity or pretty much watching a girl be raped (i fast forwarded)...but it's good--i mean it's a hitchcock, of course it's good! I won't be watching it again because of that content, however.

(de) wrote: 4.5/5. A really excellent, and surprisingly simple tale of survival that kept me on the edge of my seat, worrying about how it was going to work out.
(fr) wrote: Grade - C+Featuring some brilliantly funny performances (including some unexpected cameos) and an entertaining script, 'The Big Short' certainly has many things to like about it. However, due to the complex and, frankly, boring nature of the subject matter, the movie can suffer and lose entertainment value as a result.
(ca) wrote: Jim Jarmusch directs this odd black and white western starring Johnny Depp as William Blake, an accountant who gets mixed up with the poet of the same name by a Native American called Nobody, and with the outlaw with the same name by others pursuing him. The film is pretty entertaining, and moves in that wonderful slow way Jim Jarmusch specializes in. The music by Neil Young is excellent, and Jarmusch's visual direction is wonderful. I really enjoyed this offbeat western.
