John D (ru) wrote: The Task is maybe one of the weakest entries at After Dark Films. Though the presentation is there, plot wise its weak and flat. I was bored throughout especially when the acting is as lousy as the movie goes on. Pretty much cliche for an ADF film.

Compare with Inside Man made 2 years earlier. The hostages wouldn't have been allowed to just walk away, the tunnel would have been found, the fake hostage detected and the connections made. UK cops aren't that stupid and the crims are probably as stupid as portrayed supporting my argument.Still a laugh though.

Thomas D (jp) wrote: Natural City was a well crafted story, borrowing many themes from Blade Runner and Ghost in the Shell, it did a great job of revamping these themes and showcasing them in modern day filming. Overall though, Natural City isn't anything we haven't seen before. The characters were colorful, the visuals were amazing, and the combat androids were freaking crazy! I thought Dr. Giro was really weird too, there is always some brainiac Japananese Doctor like that in lots of anime and future movies about androids. It was right up my alley, but it might not rub off so well on people who aren't into the cyberpunk, android scene. It is however rich in story and a spectacle for the eye. A good watch.
El Hombre I (jp) wrote: Very gritty film that takes place in the 1930's about Joo Francisco dos Santos, the legendary Brazilian cross gender dresser, pimp, loving father, outlaw and local hero who became Rio De Janeiro's Queen Of Carnaval in the 40's until his death in the 70's. The gay sex is very raw as is the lifestyle in the Lapa district of Rio. Joo Francisco dos Santos lived from 1900 to 1976, adopted about a dozen children and spent some 27 years of his life in prison. Most of the story here is Joao's struggle to overcome the cruelty that comes his way because he is black, poor and gay; endlessly fighting, defending himself and getting into trouble with the law because he refuses to be treated like a second-class citizen.

Anders A (fr) wrote: Maybe my favorite Hitchcock movie? Brilliant all the way, featuring James Stewart, with all his special charismatics. Great storybuilding, with the everlasting Hitchcockian ending.
Bradley P (us) wrote: An important film for Hitchcock that would set the stage for his invasion of excellent films; Peter Lorre is fun to watch as well.
Howard E (br) wrote: In the late 1970s, the FBI in the US ran a sting operation that initially targeted the trafficking of stolen property but morphed into an investigation of corruption by government officials. This investigation, which was dubbed "Abscam", ultimately led to the conviction of a US senator, six members of Congress, one state senator, some city councillors and the mayor of Camden, NJ.To help plan and conduct the operation, the FBI hired a convicted con artist, Melvin Weinberg.As AMERICAN HUSTLE begins, we are told that some of what we're about to see actually happened. The names have all been changed but the story of cons, double crosses, love, disco music, sexy plunging necklines and bad comb overs is basically true.In the film, Irving Rosenfeld and Lady Edith Greensly run a successful scam operation in the NY/NJ area where they secure loans - for a small fee - for people who have poor credit. But the scam is that while they never do get the loans, they do, however, get the fee. Things are running well until they come up against hyperactive FBI agent Richie DiMaso who presents them with an offer they cannot refuse: They either assist the FBI in a sting operation or else face jail time for their crimes. Irv and Lady Edith agree to work with the FBI but they're not done with their conning ways, and both of them play mind games with DiMaso who is both arrogant and nave enough to think that he is the one who controls their collective destiny.AMERICAN HUSTLE is billed as a comedy crime-drama. In fact, at the recent Golden Globe awards, the film won as Best Comedy. Yes, there were funny moments but not ones that will make you roar with laughter. They were more like "I can't believe this really happened... or that even some of it happened". The story really is too good to believe but when corruption and greed are involved, truth can be stranger than fiction.The film is directed by David O. Russell, who also helmed SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK and THE FIGHTER. In AMERICAN HUSTLE, Russell reunites some of the actors he worked with on his other films including the Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert DeNiro. All these actors shine in this film. Christian Bale, who has been known to lose as much as 60 pounds for some of his film roles, reportedly gained 43 pounds and donned a tacky, bird's nest hair prosthetic for his role as the paunchy, smarmy Rosenfeld. Amy Adams was brilliant as Irving's partner-in-crime, who is just as addicted to the hustle as he is. Bradley Cooper keeps surprising me as it would seem that he's not just another pretty face. It turns out he's a pretty good actor too. As FBI agent DiMaso whose 1970s perm is wound as tightly as his demeanour, Cooper injects the right amount of crazy into every scene. But the greatest praise goes to Jennifer Lawrence who, as Irving's semi-neglected wife, Rosalyn, seems to delight in stirring up trouble. She is as slick as her red nail varnish. In one scene, she blows up their brand new microwave oven (which she calls "the science oven") by putting a metal container inside. One isn't sure if she really is that dumb or she did it just to get Irving to come home.AMERICAN HUSTLE is clever, gaudy and raucous. It will have you hooked by the first scene so enjoy the ride!
Akio C (ru) wrote: Starts up pretty interesting, but instantly flatlines once it gets to the half of the movie where they have to break the hinges off of the doors. It's like the entire rest of the movie is an extra long scene: the constant hammering of metal in the background while the truck is in a warehouse.
