There's just something very stylish about them that makes them stand out above the rest of the pack. It doesn't feel senseless, I don't think he wouldn't throw out a gunfight out there just for the fuck of it. He may, who the fuck knows, but watching his movies it seems that takes his time to let things play out in their natural order. Of course that's not to say the story is particularly good here. Well it's not bad and there's really a sense of friendship and brotherhood between the leads that you don't see a lot of and that's probably the strongest aspect of the movie besides the gunfights. These scenes are definitely excellent, well shot and edited for the best impact possible. Again I can't stress how good these scenes are. And the climactic shootout scene is pretty fabulous despite only going 1 minute tops. It's probably the best shootout scene in the entire movie for that reason alone. Though the scene at the underground clinic was a close second. So really the action scenes make this film worth watching if you're into this kind of movie, if you want a story to go along with that, well then you can't have your cake and eat it too.

Wayne W (nl) wrote: This is reminiscent of a Neil SImon comedy from the 70's. The misadventures of two guys trying to hook up in one night & the obstacles they encounter. Tori Spelling is actually good as the fag hag girlfriend. Christian Campbell should have had a better career after this movie, for some reason he took his career more towards Broadway than film. Overall this is a cute romantic comedy for the guys.
Richard L (ag) wrote: Well, what do you know... it's a Swedish teen movie. Contrary to most - if not all - American teen movies, the characters are realistic (bored, sensation-seeking, impulsive, emotionally unstable, self-centered, ambivalent teenagers). The movie deals with themes such as conformity, peer pressure, love and homosexuality. The acting of the two lead actresses is excellent.

Antonius B (au) wrote: This is a quiet film, with an old man reflecting back on his life as he travels to an awards ceremony with his daughter-in-law. It may sound too sedate to hold one's interest, but it does. Through dream sequences filled with symbolism and dialog with people he meets along the way, we get a picture painted of his life, its key moments, and how he evolved over time. We see the common thread - his serious, intelligent, considerate, yet cool and judgmental personality - and how that made him a very successful doctor, but created difficulties in his personal life. We see how he lost the real love of his life when she was picking wild strawberries and his own more passionate brother pursued her, and how his subsequent marriage to another was plagued with strife and his wife's infidelity. We see how this carried down to his son, his unhappy childhood, his depression, and the difficulty he has in his own marriage. We also see the perils of old age, seeing death coming, being sentimental, and fearing becoming obsolete. We see that despite his brilliant career and the very prestigious award he's just been given, the most meaningful, happy moment in his life was simply fishing on a peaceful day with his father, a sentiment which has a 'Rosebud' feel to it.The film is not heavy or hard to watch and just enjoy Bergman's storytelling, but at the same time it does have a weightiness to it - in recalling the soul-crushing moments of sadness in life, in his sentimental reflections of his childhood, in his weighing in on two younger men's debate about God's existence ("I see His traces wherever flowers bloom"), and as he thinks about his mortality. Some comic relief is provided in his relationship with housekeeper, who brings a smile when she leaves her door ajar as she goes to bed in case he "wants anything", after having bickered with him for the entire movie (and presumably decades of their lives). I don't see the film as being optimistic or pessimistic, or as much 'warmer' than his other work, though other viewers certainly seem to and there are moments of charm, such as when the young woman of the three he gives a ride to talks to him, asks him for advice, and sweetly says she loves him as they part. Bibi Andersson played both this role and the role of the girl in the strawberry patch that he lost, which has a certain symmetry and renewal to it. However, I think the movie is realistic and balanced, with just as much bittersweetness as sweetness - even the married couple they nearly get into a car accident with make endless snide comments about one another - and its genius is in showing us truths about life that are common to us all. While the movie doesn't preach or overtly push a message, you realize just how hard it is to lead a virtuous, positive life without regrets - and reflect on your own life, where you place priorities, how you treat people, whether you appreciate the small moments, or recognize the pivotal ones - all the things that you will probably remember at the end. Great art does this, spur reflection, and that's the case with 'Wild Strawberries'. Don't believe all the hype, but at the same time, don't be intimidated either - this would be a good one to see.
Julie K (jp) wrote: worst movie ever made? quite possibly so. terrible acting (Mickey Rourke, Adrien Brody, 2Pac - everyone but the Vietnam vet brother). terrible camera work. terrible script. just terrible. no amount of narcotics could make this movie watchable.
Matt C (us) wrote: I've been trying to persuade Felix to watch this for months so it was odd then to finally sit down and watch it to be a little underwhelmed. It's fine but it's really not as great as I remembered. Donkey aside the jokes fall mostly flat and it really lacks any charm at all. There;s one or two lines which really aren't appropriate as well. I know that makes me sound old, well I am. Felix only mildly enjoyed it as well to be honest, nowhere near some of the films we've watched recently. I won't be bothering with the bazillion sequels.
