The Act of Killing
In a place where killers are celebrated as heroes, these filmmakers challenge unrepentant death-squad leaders to dramatize their role in genocide. The result is a surreal, cinematic journey, not only into the memories and imaginations of mass murderers, but also into a frighteningly banal regime of corruption and impunity.

(de) wrote: It definitely has a very familiar story, but The Hollars is benefited by it's fantastic cast, admirable direction, and the amazing Margo Martindale. She gives one of the best performances of the year, but one that I feel might be shadowed by some of the other performances from bigger movies this year. She's still great, though. The movie itself definitely has its cliches, but it's sweet and entertaining.

(es) wrote: This is the first time I've ever agreed with the entire panel of critics on Flixster. Witless is right. I gave this movie the beneifit of the doubt because I love slapstick and Larry is pretty amusing on the "Blue Collar Comedy Tour". Larry did not transition well onto the big screen. When I think of redneck, slapstick, sweet and funny with the underdog as the hero, my mind immediately goes to Jim Varney's 'Ernest P. Worrell', whose shoes Larry or other rednecks or redneck wannabes, will never be able to fill. I can't be the only one who sees Larry's attempts to mirror the lovable hayseed, Ernest. There is the hat, the accent, the clothes, the stand-up comedy then moving over into movies. This movie has too much crude humor and disgusting bathroom jokes and there is no excuse for the racist comments, especially in a movie such as this. The(dare I say it?) plot was weaker than the pulse of a comatose patient.*(And I am not making light of people who have suffered or are suffering through this. I'm just making a reference to how terrible this movie was). "Witless Protection" has deterred me from watching any of the other Larry movies. I think it's best for him to stick to stand-up comedy, which does work better for him. I'm from the South and I think that Larry does give us a bad name. You can do comedy without making fun of other races, sexual orientation or using over the top sexual comments and bathroom humor(One fart joke will do, sometimes). Is this what has become of America? Have we really sunk so low that every ridiculous script/movie is greelighted just because of a t.v. personalities' previous work? A good stand-up comedian doesn't necessarily translate to a good movie actor. Some people have it. Some don't. Larry doesn't.

Secondly, Mac Wilkins is portrayed as a hulking moron. Is it not safe to assume that producers/writers of this film have yet to graduate from Junior High? This is obviously their level of development. Rent "Prefontaine" with Jared Leto. Respect the memory of the Coos Bay native with a film worthy of his memory. GO PRE! To the writers of "Without Limits" > GO AWAY!

HERO, but the results are certainly... interesting.Unfortunately.. the PLOT.. is.. non-existent. Or rather.. it makes.. no SENSE. On top of this.. the film... doesn't flow at all. SCENES are random.. or seemingly randomly.. sewn together, and it's easy... to get LOST.Fortunately.. as it is in the Simpsons' version.. the RESULTS... are hilarious. This film.. is so stupid. You'll THINK.. your IQ is actually.. REDUCING.. as you watch...But you can't look away. You can't.. RESIST.. the Walken, shall we say.. CHARM... because it is useless.. to RESIST. In seriousness though.. if you MUST WATCH THIS.. make sure you watch it... with a friend.. drunk.

Anyway, she's one of the dumbest, most irritating lead characters I've seen in a horror movie...she's got some great company, so she's definitely not alone). Anyway, I enjoyed the movie enough; it's hilarious, the creature effects are cool, the music is great in that 80's synth kind of way. Good times.

(mx) wrote: A very humble movie about an outlaw played by Dennis Hopper who gets a job and tries to play it straight, but the sheriff gives him a hard time. I really liked watching Hopper act in this one. It's simple, but sweet. One thing that stands out, he makes a friend at town but his wife turns out to be pretty crazy and causes some interesting drama. It's cute but scary at the same time because there are plenty of people who like to play mind games like that.

The last 5 minutes were quite amusing, and there are some funny goats making human noises at times, but it really wasn't enough to sustain any real interest or suspense. Barely 6/10.
