Marc L (nl) wrote: Quoique prt empoigner le knout films-qui-se-mlent-de-ce-qui-ne-les-regardent-pas ( "Le cochon de Gaza" n'est pas un film isralien ou palestinien mais une coproduction franco-germano-belge), le spectateur souponneux reviendra vite de meilleurs sentiments puisque "Le cochon de Gaza" a le bon got de ne jamais condamner autre chose que cette impossibilit de vivre ensemble qui a fait de cette rgion une poudrire permanente. Si on retire du lot un final un peu poseur qui semble inspir par celui, utopiste et festif, qu'avait imagin par Emir Kusturica pour "Underground", Sylvain Estibal parvient aborder un certain nombre de thmatiques (les contrles humiliants exercs par Tsahal, les colonies sauvages ultra-orthodoxes, mais aussi les attentats-suicides, l'impuissance de l'ONU ou les interdits alimentaires) sans donner l'impression de rgurgiter un brviaire l'usage des bien-pensants. Et tout cela sous couvert d'une farce surraliste, celle de ce pauvre pcheur gazaoui qui ne sait comment se dbarrasser du cochon qu'il a attrap dans ses filets ! Ce concept, d'une relle originalit, permet d'aborder l'pineux sujet de la situation au proche orient sous un angle ludique et donne lieu une succession de quiproquos burlesques qui devraient drider sans difficults les plus coincs des spectateurs. Mention spciale l'acteur d'origine irakienne Sasson Gaba dont les mimiques dpites suffisent elles seules susciter l'hilarit.

Naoya K (us) wrote: Kaurismaki's latest. In spite of its short runtime and seemingly undramatic impression, this film is actually a totally terrific and well-well-well-planed piece. What Kaurismaki does in it is to create a real man's life in a picture. The hero of this film is someone who will never be one in anybody's film but Kaurismaki's, that is to say, a loser (in its true sense), and I've never seen any other film that depicts a man's loneliness as vivid, flesh, true, and sincere as this film. Kaurismaki is, I think, the only filmmaker who has reached the closest point to have a god's eye among all the filmmakers still alive today. What he does in this film is truely miraculous.

Tom G (es) wrote: One of my all-time favorites. Visually - it is a masterpiece, but the awful script gives it the feel of 5 different short movies put together. But to me it's one of those things that's so bad it's good. The first part being the absolute best.

Daniel P (mx) wrote: Surprisingly good, and was more impressed until I learned this came out in 1997 not mid to late 80's

The Phantom C (es) wrote: Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia is highly unorthodox and compelling.

Edgar C (ag) wrote: Brutal. Every action has its re-action. Demons and destiny lurking in the darkest corners waiting for their helpless human prays to be devoured by an entire field of mysteries and inescapable doom. It is noticeably impactful and graphic for its time, yet the movies that surpass any given censorship standard and retain their shock value decades later almost always can be immediately defined as cornerstone masterpieces. This one ranks among the top supernatural horror "monogataries". 99/100.

Julien G (it) wrote: Magnifique film quebecois sur les desirs, les angoisses, les envies, les peurs d'une femme. Sublime.

Gabriel C (br) wrote: Horrible Bosses is wildly uneven and derivative, yet Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis have surprisingly believable chemistry.

Carlos G (kr) wrote: The best part of the movie was Lebron James.
