(br) wrote: The movie was very good, hampered by a very dated score and occasional sub-par acting (bad drunk acting... one of my big pet peeves). The worst thing I could say is that it's somewhat predictable. But that doesn't get in the way of letting it depress the hell out of you.
(mx) wrote: Very cold-hearted and stylish horror film by Toshiharu Ikeda, a great Japanese director who's work is unfortunately completely underrated. The problematic situation of producing quality films in Japan is obvious: A director like this should be supported to do much more work with increasing budget, but actually each film his budget did decrease! Another director in this kind of situation is Takahashi Banmei...
(ru) wrote: They often say that dreams don't usually make for good source material in art, but in the case of 3 Women, it led to a movie that remains nigh indescribable to this day. Director Robert Altman not only based the film around dreams he was having, but shot it without a full script and let improvisational material and an elliptic aura take precedence over plot. Still, the film is absolutely a complex story about female relationships, with Spacek and Duvall both giving morphing performances that bear a strong resemblance to those of Bergman's Persona. One of the most ambiguous and unexpected endings of 70s American cinema too, which might be enough for me to label this film pre-Lynchian.

When she discovers her fianc is actually headed behind the Iron Curtain to East Germany, Andrews follows him only to discover he has defected. Secretly, however, Newman is a spy who plans to steal a formula relating to anti-missile rockets. Andrews agrees to also defect to be with Newman, who hasn't divulged his secret to her.The initial premise for 'Torn Curtain' came from Hitch himself, inspired by the defection of the British diplomats, Burgess and MacLean, to Soviet Russia. "What did Mrs MacLean think of the whole thing?" was the question he wished to examine. It may have begun as a clever premise but by the time production began, Hitch realized he had a turkey on his hands. Saddled with a dull, talky script and a lead actor whose "method" style was anathema to Hitch, the director found himself struggling to inject any life into the story.The film gets off to an interesting start as we see things from Andrews' point of view, unaware what her fianc is really up to. Once the plot moves to East Germany it develops into a film that resembles a James Bond movie with the action set-pieces and gags removed, in other words, a tough slog.'Torn Curtain' is, however, worth seeing for one standout scene alone. Newman is assigned a bodyguard, played menacingly by Kieling, who he manages to slip away from in order to rendezvous with a contact at a farm. After receiving instructions from the farmer, Newman finds himself in a farmhouse with the man's wife as Kieling unexpectedly shows up. With Kieling's suspicions aroused, Newman and the woman attempt to kill him, quietly so as not to alert the taxi driver waiting outside. The scene is one of the most gruesome in cinema history as a variety of farmhouse implements (a bowl of soup, a bread knife, and a shovel) are employed to take out Kieling who proves extremely difficult to kill. Eventually a gas oven nastily proves his undoing. The scene is masterfully shot and edited and is unaccompanied by music which lends it an extra level of realism. By having two characters who don't speak each other's language, Hitch is able to play the scene in a purely visual manner.After the poor performance of 'Marnie', the Universal heads were beginning to put pressure on Hitch to play by their terms. They wanted to appeal to a younger market and insisted the movie should have a jazzy, modern score. When composer Bernard Herrmann delivered a more traditional score, Hitch fired him, ending arguably the greatest relationship between a film-maker and a composer the cinema has ever known. His replacement was John Addison, who delivered a score more satisfying to the studio but unremarkable when compared to the Herrmann score which can be found as an extra on DVD/Blu-ray releases of the film, (Herrmann's opening theme is particularly impressive).'Torn Curtain' was the first in a line of troublesome Hollywood productions for Hitch, marred by studio interference and a desire to keep up with trends. Were it not for a brief return to his native London for 'Frenzy', it would have been the beginning of a sad demise.
(fr) wrote: One of my favourite films. The classic formula of background, build-up, heightened tensions and culmination, in a closed environment. The portrayal of Hook was shameful however, so maybe a remake is due, alas Follywood would probably be even more slanderous in the face of dramatisation. "You're all going to die!"... as ever, the god believers are wrong. ;)

(au) wrote: It's kind of like a British, PG-rated version of Hostile 2 filmed entirely outside. Oh yeah, and don't count on any "Darkness" in the literal sense; the movie takes place during the day.
(jp) wrote: What does it mean "unrated"? is it a joke? this movie is not scary, not violent, there's one erotic scene between girls, but very caste... and the story is just boring, the cast is terrible and so is directing... the only goos thing is the location, really a beautiful place, obviously copied from Twilight.
