(us) wrote: so, we had a strong start with movies in see no evil. was it great? no but it fell into the horror genre nicely and the marine was a nice 80s type of action movie that would make Arnold proud. this however ducked all the fun that the leprechaun movies had about it. they turned it into a generic monster film. I found Davis to be great at his role, which his banter was cheeky but funny. with this new leprechaun, which we hardly ever see and reminds me of a cheap lick lick from resident evil, it was just ruined and I hope the new people to the series doesn't think they are all like this. skippable.

And when I had time to grasp the finer details and undertones of the plot. Being gay and one of the people marched to protest the Tianmen Square massacre, we had all experienced love and betrayal, social and political movements. The director successfully blended them (and other sub-plots) together with a clear message - let's be truthful to ourselves. Perhaps you really need to have some sort of connections to this movie to be moved - sorry, foreign critics won't get it. All lead actors are excellent, Joseph Chang is incredibly sexy! A thumbs up for everything.

Just recently revisited it via Netflix, and it was a completely different experience now that I was familiar with about 80% of the music. Moving and fascinating portrait of a complex, talented and flawed individual - with lots of interesting commentary by friends and contemporaries including Steve Earle, Guy Clark, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson, and several touching interviews with his wives and children. Highly recommended for fans and potential fans alike.

(au) wrote: This is somewhat of a spoiler for another film right off the bat, but Rashomon is more effective in letting the viewer discern what is true and what is not than The Usual Suspects. It frightens the priest as it should frighten us what we discern about the nature of man.The beginning focuses on a priest and a woodcutter in shock after having heard three separate versions of the same event in a trial of sorts. The priest is a little repetitive about how much of a tragedy these stories are, but it is still a powerful dialogue with a close- up on the priest.The story varies from person to person, but what is in all four of the versions presented (the woodcutter tells what he saw towards the conclusion of the film) is the rape of the wife of a samurai by a bandit, and the murder of the samurai. Things get more tense and dramatic as we switch from story to story, each containing a different version of how the samurai died and a different motive each time. We are constantly asking whether one or more of the witnesses lied to protect the others, or if they are justifying their actions - either way, we get a depressing view of human nature; all three are portrayed as terrible people within the film.What is fairly necessary so that the film is not too pessimistic is the conclusion with the woodcutter making a decision to take care of an abandoned baby which restores the priest's faith in humanity. Like Birdman, I would have liked if this film ended just a few minutes earlier, but it is still powerful at the close of the film.
