(br) wrote: "The Swell Season" is a documentary that follows Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova in the wake of the success with the movie 'Once,' as they undergo the ordeals of going on tour in America via bus. That having been said, things start off well enough with some fun as they go for a little frolicsome skinnydipping. Away from the music, the documentary seeks to fill in their respective backstories. But as far as Irglova goes, the interest is only in how old she is. However, Hansard's father lost his chance to go to America for a boxing tournament due to teenage pregnancy, turning to alcohol as a result.(How's that for a guilt trip?) For Hansard, it is music and nothing else, as he goes from touring with a band to getting phone calls from Bono to having his car towed away on a not-so-special episode of 'Parenthood.' In general, "The Swell Season" is interested in fame, and how it simultaneously opens some doors while closing others, its ambiguous tone emphasized by its black and white cinematography.(But how could you tell things would have not turned out the same?) And as incisive as the documentary can be, it also does the same thing as the fans who show up to get autographs, emphasizing the Oscars over the music which is more important. That having been said, the little knit cap for the statuette is really cute.

(us) wrote: An absolutely dread-filled psychological drama that tackles heavy themes of mental illness with subdued prowess, relying on just the talents of its cast and writer/director rather than bludgeoning special effects. Michael Shannon gives what might be his finest performance to date: his explosive scenes are obviously intense, but it's his softer, quieter moments that truly sell his take on the troubled character of Nichols' film.

(es) wrote: Coonskin is an enigma, a movie boycotted by black activist groups in the 1970s while simultaneously endorsed by the NAACP, today boasting admiration from the likes of both Spike Lee and Quentin Tarantino. There's no denying the visual wizardry on display here, but ultimately that's not really the point; viewers have to ask themselves whether the film's oversized depictions of racial/cultural/homosexual stereotypes fall under the category of deliberate exploitation for the sake of condemning systemic racism (and if so, does a white man have the right to attempt to make this kind of statement?) or if they simply register as limp and offensive caricatures of oppressed groups of people. Upon review, the intention is undeniably aimed at the former, the story of a group of African Americans attempting to reclaim Harlem from the stranglehold of systemic white oppression a deliberate attempt to discomfort stagnant white oppressors content in perpetuating their unspoken forms of racism and the racist imagery so prevalent in classic forms of entertainment. In terms of the execution, Bakshi's vision is unrelentingly unsubtle, lampooning racist caricatures with little regard for cohesiveness or consistent pacing. That being said, its an uncompromising vision of anti-racist material, its existence contributing to the conversation in difficult, but ultimately positive, ways.
(mx) wrote: I really enjoyed this. It did have its racial undertones, more like overtones, but had plenty to offer. Jefferson is bloody brilliant and demands laughter everytime he opens his mouth. However, the only good actor was him i.e. Mantan Moreland. My liking of this certainly isn't on any sort of horror factor, purely its comedy aspect. If you are very easily offended by racism don't bother, but if you like a good laugh i'd recommend this.
