Karl G (nl) wrote: I find these type of movies to be most annoying because the film makers can do anything they want during the film and it doesn't have to make any sense. The movie wasn't really bad but the fact that the boom microphones were visible during the entire movie sometimes 2 at a time could be seen during a scene just distracted me from the actual movie. Was this part of the psychological manipulation of this movie or just poor filming? I for one love Marisa Tomei and she gives a great performance in this movie but I just couldn't like this movie no matter how hard I tried.
Matthew C (mx) wrote: Really great adaptation, Ulrich Muhe makes an unlikely but powerful K, the assistants are satisfyingly hilarious - Haneke really gets the humour of Kafka. Haneke's stylisations all work to great affect - the abrupt cuts heighten the feeling of foreshortened chronology that preoccupies Kafka; that we never see the Castle is essential; the use of a narrator is a necessarily literary way of staying faithful to the tone of the book; and the elaboration of Gerstacker at the end gives the film an interesting circularity. Haneke seems to come so much closer to capturing the mood of Kafka than did Orson Welles, his unspectacular, unshowy, elisive style based on the grammar of film matches much closer Kafka's efficient, wandering disjointed prose.

Luke T (de) wrote: Danny Boyle now proved that he could direct any genre in cinema with this horror film, which I have to admit was a lot better than what I thought it was going to be like.Cillian Murphy gives a very good performance as a survivor unaffected by a plague that has turned the country into blood-crazed zombies, and he will do everything he can in order to survive. However I would consider it to be more of a psychological thriller because there was not one moment that make me jump.However you can still understand what is happening, because the script, despite having a lot of horrible and offensive language, is very well written, and the direction from Boyle is very solid, because the atmosphere is very tense from the start to the finish.Also you can tell when people have been infected by the mysterious outbreak, and this is I think the main reason why the film works well, and was successful when it was first released.There is not as much gore on screen as I thought there was going to be, so overall this is one very decent thriller from Boyle, who would now direct any genre to a good standard, but due to the amount of bad language, it is not a film that I would view again.

Philip W (it) wrote: In "Opening Night" (1977), Gena Rowlands plays Myrtle Gordon, an actress who, while rehearsing a play that is in previews in New Haven, begins to completely unravel. After witnessing the tragic accident of a fan seeking an autograph (in a scene that was later mimicked by Pedro Almodovar in "All About My Mother"), she is forced to confront the emptiness and lonliness of her life as she, like the character she is playing on-stage, slowly drips past middle-age and tips towards the bottle. Directed by her husband, John Cassavettes (just like "A Woman Under the Influence" and a host of other films), he also has a role as her co-star in the play-within-the-film. His direction here is fluid, unobtrusive and solemn, never shying away from some of the uglier aspects of Myrtle's life and personality, yet allowing the character to shine when it feels like she's earned it. Rowlands has shown time and again that she is not afraid to drop the glamour and really get ugly for a performance. "Opening Night" is certainly no exception. There are points in this film where she looks gorgeous and others where she looks like she's been sleeping in a gutter for a couple days which works for a character who is trying to maintain some semblence of star power and prestige as she is crumbling inside. It's probably some of Rowlands' best work and, at times, feels far more real than just a movie. What I haven't heard mention in several reviews for "Opening Night" is that the play-with-the-film entitled, 'The Second Woman' is uniformly AWFUL! It makes no sense, has very little through-line, has an opening scene that seems as if it should come somewhere near the end and closes on perhaps one of the dumbest lines/gestures I've ever seen on stage or in a film. If Joan Blondell's character (Sarah Goode, the playwright) were a little less confident about this supposedly brilliant play she's written, I would've bought things a bit more, but they all acted like it was fucking Chekhov. With that said, however, Blondell's supporting performance is excellent. Watch out for the Peter Falk/Peter Bogdonavich cameos towards the end. This would be a great companion piece with "Another Woman" (1988) in which Gena Rowlands has come to a similar crossroads, questioning her life choices.

Allan C (us) wrote: This is one of my favorite Stallone action flicks and I think it deserves more respect. Written by the man behind "Heathers" this is witty and rather subversive action film, satirizing the action film cliches that Stallone had a major hand in perpetuation. At the same time, this film was produced by Joel Silver and is very much a big budget action flick. The story set up is ripe for satire, taking a stereotypical 80s action film hero (Sly) and villain (Wesley Snipes) and then kitten them against one another in a peaceful utopian future where violence is a thing of the past and something you can only find in museums. Snipes is in a "cryo prison," where prisoners are frozen in ice, but manages to escape during his parol hearing. The utopian future knows nothing about this type of criminal, so they unthaw the the cop, Sly, who originally put Snipes away back in the day. The film could easily have been a fairly straight sci-fi action flick, but the filmmakers take every opportunity they can to ridicule Joel Silver style of action films (mocking tough guy quips, twisting action film cliches, and generally making Stallone look like a buffoon any chance they get). Still, the film also celebrates and revels in it's brutish action and action film tropes, so even thoough it's spoofing the genre, it also delivers the goods and also the cliches. There's the hard nosed future police captain, Bob Gunton, who scolds Sly throughout the film. Syl is also paired with the an mix matched partner, played by Sandra Bullock. For me, this is the type of light comic role that Bullock is best at. Probably this film or her part in "A Thing Called Love" are my favorite roles she's played. Wesley Snipes is a typical over-the-top action film villain, who unfortunately borders on the annoying. However, you also get Nigle Hawthorne as the shady leader of the future utopia, who apparently only took this part to prove he had screen charisma so the filmmakers of "The Madness of King George" would let him reprise his stage role at the title king. You also get Benjamin Bratt, Denis Leary, Bill Cobbs, Jack Black as a "Wasteland Scrap," Jesse Ventura CryoCon and even Adrienne Barbeau doing the voice of the Main Frame Computer. I looked up director Marco Brambilla to see what else he'd done and his only other feature film is an Alicia Silverstone comedy and a TV mini-series. He's apparently a video collage and installation artist, so maybe film production wasn't his bag, but it's too bad because his clearly had a strong (and witty) visual sense and was also able to craft some exciting action sequences. Overall, I think this is a underrated Stallone action flick and I'll give Sly props for being willing to poke fun at himself in this role.
