The Big Mans speech to God and camcorder before he cuts his balls off and puts them calmly in a jar is worthy of Churchill and the French woman with the taser was a well judged and subtle performance that captured the energy and directness of this film. Credit also to the "I'm not a stripper" womans hair which did look proper awful as her time behind bars went on.

skinny t (ca) 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'.
James S (ag) wrote: Whenever I seem to review a female-centric sassy teen flick these days I seem to keep referring back to Mean Girls. I remember reviewing The DUFF when I was on Tumblr and noting just how much it was making an effort to set itself in a post Mean Girls world but at the same time distance itself from Mean Girls. Just last month I reviewed Clueless and noted how much Mean Girls didn't have the problematic plot points that Clueless did, how much Mean Girls clearly improved on the formula Clueless set down. I mean I saw this at the same cinema and the cult following Mean Girls comes with was demonstrable. People laughed at Clueless but not like they laughed at Mean Girls, not like I laughed at Mean Girls, they applauded at the end of Mean Girls in way they definitely didn't at Clueless. The only teen film in recent memory I can recall that definitively didn't exist in the large shadow cast by Mean Girls would be Juno, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World if we stretch the definitions of a teen film, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower purely by virtue that the book it's based on was written in the 80s. Mean Girls follows Cady played by infamous train wreck Lindsay Lohan, (The Parent Trap, Freaky Friday, The Canyons), before she went off the rails, (see what I did there?). Cady until now has been home schooled in Africa with her parents and now comes to high school to find it's not so different from Africa. Mean Girls succeeds through, firstly, assured direction from Mark Waters, (Freaky Friday, The Spiderwick Chronicles) who has a real sense of when to mix in the more satirical naturistically played segments with the expressionistic, stylistic moments. Secondly, the great performances her elicits. The film benefits from a very likable and sympathetic lead in Lohan and a truly magnetic turn from villainesse and high school queen bee archetype Regina George, whose name has now become infamous, played with scenery-chewing glee by Rachel McAdams, (Sherlock Holmes, Spotlight, About Time), who was just nominated for an oscar for another fantastic turn in best picture winner Spotlight, she has really matured as an actress in a force to be reckoned with. There's also a myriad of wonderfully game supporting players from; Amanda Seyfried, (Mamma Mia!, Les Misrables) and Lacey Chabert as George's hapless minions; Tina Fey, (Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) and Tim Meadows, (Saturday Night Live, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story) as the equally hapless teachers; with Lizzy Caplan, (Cloverfield), Daniel Franzese, (I Spit on Your Grave), and Amy Poehler, (Inside Out) rounding off the fantastic ensemble, each one turning in memorable and career defining performances. The real joy of Mean Girls though is in Tina Fey's biting screenplay. The humour isn't nearly as safe as something like Clueless and many of the jokes causes one to go 'hang on did someone actually just say that in a studio teen flick?' one of the most memorable being 'I can't help it if I have a heavy flow and a wide set vagina'. The fact is that this film isn't afraid to address the way it's protagonists would speak in real life, the things they'd talk about and the jokes they make. You could write off a lot of the jokes as crass and vacuous if they weren't just so on point. It's a joke a minute and some of the jokes are actually as sharp and scabrous as something from John Micheal or Martin McDonagh, (In Bruges , Calvary, War on Everyone). The jokes will make you cringe as much as some of their jokes but the reason here is more that it will remind you of your own time at high school, your own mistakes and awkward moments and times you let down your friends. The film has an emotional truth as well as a comedic sense. There's an attempt in the last act to humanise the roughest edged characters to a degree and there's one scene that sticks out in everyone's mind as being extraordinarily cheesy but you just read that as a tongue in cheek poking at how teen flicks end with a big cheesy set peice, (I really need to stop forgiving films by saying it's satirical, post-modernism means never having to say you're sorry), or it might just be a fop to the studios. However, for the most part, Mean Girls is a biting, edgy, lough out loud hilarious teen comedy that stands out from the crowd by not holding back and having an ensemble game cast, along with a director who understands how to construct a joke really well and will go completely over the top if that's what it takes to get a laugh. In short, Mean Girls is a joy.

David D (de) wrote: I have watched trhis movie at least 5 times now and it gets better each time I watch it. Peter O'Toole's portrayal of Alan Swann is a masterclass. Some may say it is self indulgent or exaggerated but I believe it to be based largely on Errol Flynn and the golden age of Hollywood flamboyance. As well as the comedic set pieces the film is tinged with pathos. Swann's inability to come to terms with who he has become; his unwillingness until the end to visit his daughter and finally Swann overcoming all his demons to be who he really is and who his adoring public think he is and want him to be are all heart warming moments.
Joseph B (ca) wrote: Andrei Tarkovsky has gone down in the history of cinema as being the most important Soviet director in the second half of the twentieth century. His 1966 film "Andrei Rublev" has been considered the "most historically audacious production in the twenty-odd years since Sergei Eisenstein's 'Ivan the Terrible.'" It was intially banned by the Soviet government for being too experimental, too violent, too frightening and too political to be realeased and was repressed for five years and not officially shown in the Soviet Union until 1971. It was screened at the Cannes Film Festival in 1969 but due to pressure from the Soviet Union it was shown out of competition.Many different versions of the film survive due to many producers, politicians, and distributers demanding the 205 minute original cut to be reduced. Citing the film's negativity, violence and nudity as things that should be cut. Criterion released the original 205 minute cut in the mid-1990's on laserdisc and later on DVD in 1999 advertising it as a "director's cut" despite Tarkovsky's preference for the 186 minute cut. The transfer for the laserdisc was actually sourced from a film print director Martin Scorsese had acquired while visiting Russia.Andrei Rublev was an icon painter for the Eastern Orthodox Christian Church in medieval Russia. The Russian Orthodox Church had canonized Rublev as a saint in 1988 and celebrate his feast day on January 29. Not much is really known about his life and Tarkovsky's film only uses his life and what is known to make a grander statement about goodness in a world full of evil.Rublev experiences doubt, regret, guilt throughout eight episodes in his life. The film isn't linear, nor does every vignette feature Rublev. The film takes the idea that you can understand the time period through the life of a man. Princes at odds with one another over territory and constant raids by Tatars. A very challenging film to watch and disect, but a beautifully directed film.
