Pastoral Hide and Seek
A young boys' coming of age tale set in a strange, carnivalesque village becomes the recreation of a memory that the director has twenty years later.

Gregory C (us) wrote: in tom waits's "lie to me" there's a verse that ends with, "i have no use for the truth!" this line, more than it's literal meaning in the context of the song, says everything about waits's persona and songwriting process. i have a feeling the same applies to stephin merritt. however, this documentary gets at neither the lie nor the truth but delivers heavily on the completely mundane. for a movie that apparently took 10 years to make, these directors unturned not one stone. it's as if they didn't want to upset their poor hero. what we're left with is a gutless, fan-girl puff piece that delivers all the goods in the trailer. there isn't even that much good live footage. save yourself the trouble and just listen to the records. you'll get way more out of them. this is weak.

Gregory G (fr) wrote: Inspired by the case of Mary Kay Letourneau, a schoolteacher who was imprisoned for having sex with one of her students, which is the basis for the book by Zoe Heller. This kind of sensational material has been exploited repeatedly into TV movie soap opera. In this British chamber drama about obsessive and possessive love, the story is told from the point of view of a spinster schoolteacher close to retirement (Judi Dench), who befriends the new art teacher (Cate Blanchett), and when she discovers the art teacher is having sex with a 15-year-old student, she manipulates the situation to her advantage. The always authoritative Dench is masterful here as a lonely, slightly delusional, narcissistic woman, who earns our sympathy without turning piteous. Dench gives a sensitive performance that shows this woman's bitterness, jealousy, and vindictiveness without making her into a monster. Blanchett, who towers over Dench, is very beautiful here and she expresses the conflicting emotions, desire, and vulnerability that help us to understand her actions. Patrick Marber's script includes an ironic narration, reading from Dench's diaries, that suggests a black comedy, but the film doesn't follow through. Directed by Richard Eyre, the tone is very uneven and it doesn't have the humor to be taken as a satire. It plays as a standard melodrama. The performances by Dench and Blanchett transcend the mediocre material - this is as good as acting gets. Phillip Glass's score hypes up several scenes that diminish the emotions. Cinematography is by Chris Menges. With Bill Nighy and Andrew Simpson.

Welcome to the life of harassment, stalkers, offensive marriage offers from pervs, under appreciation, lack of respect and suggested rape to keep your life going, and you can't talk about it because you have to keep your job. You get to see Dustin Hoffman's big ass nose cover the screen for quite some time!.
CJ C (br) wrote: "All these electrical thingamajigs! You gotta be careful with all these buttons." I adore this movie, a comedy masterpiece in every way. So funny & visually perfect. Supposedly this movie put Jacques Tati in debt for 10 years, but it was well worth it. Absolutely a piece of film art. See the Criterion release.
