(au) wrote: While the events take place over some brief hours of an overnight sea journey, the mating ritual feels like it is taking forever. Lighting is too clinically harsh. Strong sense of realism (except the overly thoughtful script), a melancholy transience and incredibly studied nuances..

(jp) wrote: I went into this expecting camp fest, but actually ended up watching a pretty decent film. Basically, it's about a 12 step program for Vampires. It has a good amount of dark humor, a really original story and some fun action sequences. My only gripe is could have had a little more Madsen. But that's alright because the movie was still enjoyable without him. All in all, this is a good film. Nice to see an original take on the vampire theme. Sometimes that can blow up in your face, but this film has just the right mix of action/drama/humor to keep you interested.

(br) wrote: Terrific film noir throwback with a uniquely African American perspective. What makes this film so special that it's not just a modern take on film noir, much like how Roman Polanzi brilliantly did so with "Chinatown," but this film manages to seamlessly infuses issues of race in America with a genre that has largely ignored the African American perspective. Outside of the novels of Chester Himes, I'm really at a loss to come up with any sort of period noir films or crime novels that were told from an African American perspective. In this film, Denzel Washington plays WWII vet Easy Rawlins who's simply trying to I've the American Dream of owing his own home working an honest job. However, Easy loses his job and is forced to take on a suspicious private investigation case to locate a missing woman, the titular devil in a blue dress. The film unfolds like a classic Raymond Chandler Phillip Marlow mystery where a simple case goes down a serpentine rabbit hole of colorful characters, double crosses and assorted criminal activity. There are very few films that really manage to accurately recapture the classic feel of nor, but this film very nearly reaches the highest of the best of modern noir, and is worthy comparison to "Chinatown." Washington is terrific as Easy Rawlins in what I had hoped would have turned into a series of film for author Walter Mosely's character. Seeing Easy code switch between white, black, rich and poor world is fascinating (speaking as someone who is privileged to not have to do that). This example perfectly illustrates what this film dos so well, illustrating issues of race, how African American's are forced to change the way the communicate depending upon who they are talking to, but the Easy's ability to code switch also serves the film's story. The film's ultimate reveal about the woman's secret who he's looking for does this same thing as well, serving the film both thematically and also serving the film's mystery narrative. Besides being having a smart story and script, the film features a wonderful supporting cast. Tom Sizemore is a very scary henchmen. Maury Chaykin plays a very creepy millionaire. And Don Cheadle very nearly steals the film from as Easy's loose cannon friend Mouse. Tak Fujimoto provides the film with a gorgeously shadowy 1950s Los Angels. Elmer Bernstein composed a classic throwback style score. And the period detail in costumes and set designs are equally strong. I'm really disappointed this film wasn't a hit and that writer/director Carl Franklin was not able to continue adapting Mosley's series of books. Overall, this is a terrific film.
(kr) wrote: This is a landmark, in that's a very early (for Hollywood) Hollywood attempt to deal with AIDS. It does a good job humanizing the disease but it is very safe and easy to watch. Something about the episodic nature of the film doesn't feel right to me, though I understand why they did it, and it's kind of a neat way of dealing with the subject matter. But it makes (some of) the characters seem a little artificial, like cliches. Also, the ending is mostly terrible or at least unnecessary.
