The acting isn't bad - Reece Witherspoon fills the role of Becky Sharp admirably. But the plot meanders as Becky's plays her social climbing like a game of Chutes & Ladders. Characters come & go and sometimes come again. Most of the time, you wonder what their point in the story was, other than to serve as fodder. If you're big on the old aristocratic games of strategizing nobility match-ups, this movie's for you. Otherwise, it's not that terribly exciting or entertaining.

I don't tend to watch depraving films often, even though I can withstand them, and "Sal or the 120 day of sodom" is among my favorite films, but this just seemed like a film I needed to watch. The film itself has a style I almost predicted it to have, and contained everything I expected it to have. Although, I did feel it was like some sort of film I've already seen, it all felt so refreshing, genuine, and even original. The film is the story of a butcher, and tells the downward spiral to rock bottom of the butcher. Even though each scene feels like a short story in itself, it never loses focus on it's meaning as a whole, no matter the immediate situation. Also, it never lets go of that French style either. The film goes fast, and it narrates every last thought out of this film. But, even though I was very satisfied with the film, when it came up to it's last scenes, my god, was I completely blown away. Nowadays it's very rare for a film to achieve the power of "I Stand Alone". The scene shown on the cover art was one of the most effective scenes of the last 20 years. Basically meaning that it stimulated my brain and senses on an unbelievable amount, and it was a perfect scene, not saying that it was hard to come up with, but just the build to it, and how everything came together at that perfectly portrayed moment. Also the scene where he is hugging his daughter with "Canon in D minor" playing, very powerful. I love when films play scenes for a long time, because it truly makes you think about everything in the film and it just works out better than cutting it short (well, assuming you have a good scene in the first place). The only film I can think of that has a long scene, that truly emphasizes the film is "The 400 Blows", while this film didn't quite reach that level, it still outsmarts most modern cinema.

Ben H (us) wrote: Hard to truly call this movie a werewolf, especially comparing it to such greats as American Werewolf in London and Silver Bullet etc. However there is some charm to this more modern twist on the original folklore, leaving you guessing to the conclusion. In the end, there is suspense there is a mass of feral killings and a nice side romance story for measure.
