(es) wrote: A must see, very interesting story and well acted, great collaboration with Hollywood and Nollywood actors. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
(kr) wrote: Great music and chemistry from the cast. William H. Macy delivered a great script and directorial effort. I highly recommend.
(it) wrote: A really good documentary portraying someone we all thought we knew when in reality we didn't. Though it doesn't cover his whole life it does cover the most important areas in real detail. With some fabulous stories, some poignant moments and a reflection on life this is a documentary that even if your not a fan of his music can still enjoy because it is a human story.

(de) wrote: Sean Penn's brilliant debut, sadly forgotten "The Indian Runner" is one of the movies that moves you and even if he hasn't managed to even come close to this masterpiece in his later work, we should be grateful for this uncompromising journey into the confused mind of an isolated human being.
(it) wrote: Very interesting, different and ulitmately sad. Shot beautifully with some exceptional performances. A true Indian masterpiece, I'll definitely have to see Earth and Fire.
(jp) wrote: After a few years in prison, former heroin addict and cardsharp Frankie Machine (Sinatra) returns back to his home town, planning on getting rid of his old habits, and changing his future goals into the life of a big-band drummer, a hobby he picked up while in treatment. But after only a few days back, Frankie finds that what he wanted his hard, and money is scarce, so he ends up getting back into his old habits to make ends meet. Backed by an emotionally unstable wife (Parker) things don't get much better, and when he blows the chance to really become a drummer, even his girlfriend Molly (Novak) bails on him. Things get even worse when the police are chasing him not only for heroin possession, but a murder that his wife committed. "The Man with the Golden Arm" is one of the most daring, real, and gritty dramas of the 1950's. Many reviewers have stated that the film is somewhat dated now, and I can't disagree more. For what options they had in the '50's, the film pulls off everything it can, and creates an excellent film. Though not done as technically well and it is artistically, overall "The Man with the Golden Arm" is extremely well-made, most likely due to Otto Preminger's realistic, unflinching direction, Sinatra's committed, unglamorous performance, and the loud, unique jazz score. The film shows us what drug addiction is like, and the world it shows us is nothing like some Hollywood melodrama-- it has a real feel to it, and that's what makes the film so successful and so perfect to this day. Sinatra is SO good here (in my opinion giving his greatest performance, and yes, I've seen "From Here to Eternity"), and the supportive parts by Parker and Novak range from stellar to jaw-dropping. "The Man with the Golden Arm" is excellent. It's absorbing, unflinching, and real-- the parts that make up a great drug film. 4.5 stars. Recommended.

(nl) wrote: With Inland Empire being David Lynch's last feature length film to date and teaming him up again with Laura Dern, it was a feature I had to behold.With the premise in Inland Empire chronicling a woman as she attempts to succeed in a Hollywood career, it comes off as being familiar to David Lynch's Academy Award nominated Mulholland Drive. Following the same kind of narrative path, Inland Empire has a premise which is convoluted and a plot structure which has never heard of the word consistency which works to its atmospheric benefit. At the same time, it is clearly likely to isolate viewers who are not already fans of David Lynch. Many people would be more critical of Inland Empire if his name was not on the director's credit, but because it is David Lynch showing a clever experimentation in surrealist cinema once again, fans of his should find appreciation for his relentlessly sick and twisted mind while newcomers are bound to be isolated and confused. The script itself is really interesting because though understanding the characters is a challenge, they are all interesting creations with strong dialogue and are perfectly cast. But they are more interested for how they are treated to the narrative than for being general creations.No stranger to testing the limits, David Lynch puts an all new kind of filmmaking style into Inland Empire. With the cinematography being built on cameras of a more average quality and following basic techniques, Inland Empire almost feels like it is shot in a documentary format which gives an odd sense of realism to the feature. Since realism is not synonymous with David Lynch in any sense of the word, it is intriguing to witness. The cinematography of Inland Empire gives it an interesting visual edge, and it captures the grim and dark colour palette of the production design very nicely. The lighting of the film is key to this because it keeps things dark yet easy to see, making for an interesting visual experience which is edited well. And with the power of a soundtrack that combines intense compositional pieces with some occasional jazz pieces and more, leading to a dark yet glamourous atmosphere. Inland Empire is an impressive exercise in style from David Lynch which compensates for a lot of the narrative complications.While the plot structure of Mulholland Drive was not chronological, Inland Empire follows that path a bit more clearly. It doesn't mean that the film is not convoluted, sick and twisted, but at least it is somewhat easier to make sense of. Returning to what he is best at, David Lynchc crafts a story which really tugs viewers all over the place. While the confusing elements of the film and the slow pace are a lot to take in, especially considering the fact that the film runs for nearly three hours, his gleeful passion for merciless surrealism injects a powerful atmosphere into Inland Empire which is unforgettable. Embracing the story is not always easy, but David Lynch's work is undeniable because the film is a truly haunting sentiment, being thoroughly scary and torturing to the mind. If the narrative of the film is not flawless, then the experience itself is powerful enough to leave most viewer shocked and that is where the true source of strength comes into play. Inland Empire above all is a powerful psychological thriller which is full of surrealism iconic of David Lynch. Since he has not made a film in the last nine years, Inland Empire simply serves as a reminder that he still has all his iconic talents and serves as a piece of hope that one day he will come back to wow audiences all over again. In all honesty, it is one of my more favourable of his films.And with perfect casting, Inland Empire does not fail to bring the best out of its actors.Laura Dern's leading performance in Inland Empire really gives the film its necessary human touch. In one of the finest leading performances from her entire career, Laura Dern has Inland Empire revolving entirely around her and capturing the interests of viewers. Her performance has been touted as one of her finest to date, and that is because she is at the centre of the film. Everything is about her, even if the narrative skews off from her story occasionally. After working intensively well with David Lynch on Wild at Heart, she returns to team up with him on Inland Empire to give a performance many call the best of her career and it is not hard to see why. She captures the determination and fractured innocence of Naomi Watts' character Betty Elms in Mulholland Drive, but with more engagement in the atmosphere and an unflinching passion for succumbing to the harsh nature of everything. Laura Dern proves to audiences that she is David Lynch's ultimate leading lady in Inland Empire, and her physical and emotional involvement in the role ensures that she has no trouble embracing the dark nature of the material at all.Justin Theroux is also great in Inland Empire. He consistently seems phased in his part as he stands up to the dark nature of the film with a perfect sense of just how sick and twisted it is. He accepts the world around him and engages with it on a level which is unflinchingly confident and displays his ability to interact with the surrounding cast very well, particularly with Laura Dern. Since he was also present in Mulholland Drive, he is a genial presence anyway, but he goes beyond being just that.Jeremy Irons is also very good due to his sophistication and his fearless approach to the dark subject matter, and the cameo of William H. Macy is a nice touch.So though Inland Empire is as convoluted, sick and twisted as you would expect as well as being a bit of a stretch, the intense and dark atmosphere of the film established by David Lynch's direction and Laura Dern's leading performance is unforgettable.
