Red Hook Summer
When his mom deposits him at the Red Hook housing project in Brooklyn to spend the summer with the grandfather he’s never met, young Flik may as well have landed on Mars. Fresh from his cushy life in Atlanta, he’s bored and friendless, and his strict grandfather, Enoch, a firebrand preacher, is bent on getting him to accept Jesus Christ as his personal savior. Only Chazz, the feisty girl from church, provides a diversion from the drudgery. As hot summer simmers and Sunday mornings brim with Enoch’s operatic sermons, things turn anything but dull as people’s conflicting agendas collide.

(fr) wrote: Enjoyable film, but the pieces never quite fit together. Both the young leads give good performances.
(it) wrote: One of the worst movie I have seen this year. It successfully featured one of the most irritating main couple ever grace on wide screen. Revolved around people who cheat and not in a cute way. I can see toward the end the writer seems to make the main characters' acts somewhat disposable which even get me on my nerve. Joyless movie with morally bankrupt characters. Pass this.
(au) wrote: "Let's explore the topics of religion, murder, marriage, capitalism and prostitution...and still try to keep things light." This film gets some interesting points for effort, but it absolutely bit off more than it could chew. The crude and juvenile humor is actually the low point. On the bright side, Schwimmer is surprisingly good as a tortured priest.

(jp) wrote: Art for the sake of art; weirdness for the sake of weirdness. While images of this bizarre spectacle won't be leaving me for some time, I question what else I was supposed to walk away with. In fact, I asked Crispin Glover this very question during the Q&A period, and the sum of his answer was that he'd be content with his audience walking away with any question at all. Pfft. While C.G. gave us some clue to us wanting to question taboos, this film is so chock-full of them, you tend to stop noticing. With the muffled and incomprehensible dialogue to boot, I gave up trying to decipher much else. If you want to see something you've absolutely never seen before, well this is it. But I wouldn't recommend it.

(es) wrote: Sidney Lumet's tough, fascinating, true-life character study of Frank Serpico an honest New York City policeman, who discovers wide-spread corruption in the police department during the early 70s. He is ostracize and endures the scorn and mistreatment from his fellow cops while attempting to perform his job with honesty and integrity. Al Pacino delivers a complex, mesmerizing Oscar nominated, Golden Globe winning performance, which is one of the finest of his career, as the nonconformist undercover cop who couldn't keep his mouth shut after witnessing cops on the take. He goes to his superiors but they just ignored his charges, so he makes the potentially deadly decision that will make him a marked man in the police department, Serpico goes public with his revelations to the New York Times newspaper about the corruption within the police department, this action trigger an independent investigation by the Knapp Commission. Based on the book by Peter Mass with a excellent screenplay by Waldo Salt and Norman Wexler. Astute direction by the late great Sidney Lumet, with exceptional supporting performances by John Randolph, Jack Kehoe, Tony Roberts, and Cornelia Sharpe. The film benefits greatly by a solid sense of reality that is conveyed by the great use of New York City locations, focusing on the habitues of street crime. This is one of the great gritty works of cinematic art from the early 70s cinema. Highly Recommended.
