(it) wrote: With this uncomfortable drug-like experience of strong colors and strobe lights, Gaspar No proves again that he is such an imaginative director, taking us with his subjective camera in a depressing psychedelic trip presented entirely from the point of view of its main character.
(kr) wrote: A bad movie about smuggling drugs using planes. The special effects were awful, the acting was really bad and the plot even worse.Avoid like the plague.
(es) wrote: One of my my most favorite Mani Ratnam Hindi films of all time. The casting was great and Abishek Bachchan's performance made us feel that his character was so damn realistic. The casting was great and the narration simply brilliant.
(nl) wrote: Good movie. Entertaining, unoriginal story, but still a decent one, and a great performance from Jarell Houston.
(de) wrote: It looks good on paper, but in execution, this film ended with me asking why I should care about so many of the banal conversations that made up the plot. Interesting (and timely) issues to those familiar to the French social/education system, but not much else. 2 stars because I couldn't sit through the whole thing.

(nl) wrote: Once the final race in the film was completed I felt inspired and felt goosebumps because the film had finally come to an end. I didn't have to deal with any more predictable schmaltz. Every thing in this movie can be seen from a mile away. Every relationship between the characters feels artificial and condescending. The actors in this film are not playing characters, they're playing caricatures. The movie felt empty and passionless to me. The film meanders and tries to do too much at once. It does everything half-heartedly at that. The romance is in the movie because it has to be. The movie has scenes where our heroes, the underdogs, fight scumbag college kids because movies like this always need scenes like that. This movie was just a coming of age inspirational sports film that starts optimistically, it has moments where our hero drops to rock bottom, and then finally he accomplishes his goal. In between all of that, we aren't offered anything new. This was a result of laziness on almost everything that went into the film. It's unfortunate this Breaking Away had nothing new to bring to the genre. I went in so optimistically because this is one of my friend's dad's favorite movies. The same man whose favorite genres include exploitation movies, Japanese horror, and weird ass movies in general. What a shame, there's nothing exciting, invigorating or inspirational about this movie.

(de) wrote: Apt Pupil is a decent film. It is about a boy who blackmails his neighbour after suspecting him to be a Nazi war criminal. Brad Renfro and Ian McKellen give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Bryan Singer did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the drama.
(fr) wrote: Greatest gangster movie ever! Love it, and always watch it. Best part about this film, no matter how many times you watch this movie, it never has a dull moment. There aren't enough stars to categorize this movie, because it needs more than 10 stars. Powerful, captivating storyline. I highly recommend watching this film, packed with lots of drama, and realistic footage after footage. All the actors are superb. Loved every second of this film. My favorite character has to be O' Dog, which is Kevin. I enjoyed him the most because he always carried a gun with him, and I definitely need a friend like that with me to feel protected at all times. I just can't get enough of this film.
(de) wrote: In all honesty this movie looked very much like a 'Major League' clone judging by the title and poster, hell they even cast Dennis Haysbert who played the menacing Pedro Cerrano in that movie. So is this a crazy kamikaze comedy with over the top characters, wacky situations and foul language? well no actually.Believe it or not this is actually a sensible light-hearted romcom which showcases the cultural differences between Japan and their baseball traditions, and America and their baseball traditions.Tom Selleck plays the obligatory aged fading baseball star who is transferred to Japan to play professional baseball whilst also becoming the clubs poster boy. Naturally Selleck's character is against this move and has a hard time getting to grips with the cultural differences both on and off the ballpark. Spoiler alert (as if you need it)...eventually he comes around with the help of his new love interest and helps the team...well I'm sure you can guess.Yes the tale is a predictable one that has been covered by virtually every sports flick ever, but that's not the point of the movie. The main point here is providing an insight into Japanese culture and how they play and watch the game of baseball, its like the sport version of 'Lost in Translation'...almost. Just like that film this story delves deep into the Japanese traditions, routines and rituals that make up their sport, how the Japanese made baseball their own. This naturally provides many giggles with Selleck's big bold brash arrogant cowboy-like character stepping on many toes and accidentally insulting everyone or harking bad luck. Its not all giggles though as we see much of Nagoya and its surrounding areas, how Japanese people live in parts and indeed how they watch baseball...munching on bowls of noodle meals with lots of colourful fanfare mainly. Its actually very interesting and I enjoyed watching these segments, being interested in Japan helps I guess.For me the one thing I didn't really like was Selleck's character. I realise this guy is suppose to be a cocky hotshot star player and the whole point of the movie is to have him be a jackass...but boy is he an unlikable jackass! He obviously doesn't take the Japanese game seriously and treats the players, staff, media and coach with disrespect, this of course sets up the plot twist midway through. But generally I found his character to be whiny, rude and obnoxious, he never even gives the Japanese culture a chance, he constantly takes the piss and ignores the rules. Now lets be serious here, I know this is just a movie but I think even the most arrogant player/person wouldn't really act like this from day one. Sure over time people could lose their rag under strange circumstances, under stress with different cultures in a foreign land, but I think most would give it a shot and at least be polite to a degree to start with sheesh!The fact that he doesn't like anything about Japan and constantly moans about how he hates it even though he's a popular sports icon earning money just makes him unlikable in my book. Sure its a come down for this character but he's still treated like a star and everything is provided for him, not too shabby really. Anywho apart from the bitchy Jack Elliot (Selleck) the other cast members are very good and add much gravitas to this soppy tale. The best of these easily being Ken Takakura as the cliched hard nosed team coach who must put up with Elliot's sulky behaviour. Think of this guy as a Mr. Miyagi type character, he doesn't say much, grunts a lot, looks very serious and stern all the time, hides a few tricks and in the end wins your heart (much more so than Selleck's character). The film isn't as cliched as you'd think at times, there is the slimy ponytailed agent of Elliot who you'd swear blind will turn out to be the bad guy and somehow screw Elliot over...well you'd be wrong.Its definitely a solid movie and its nice to see baseball through the eyes of another country even though there aren't too many outside of the US to choose from. The baseball sequences are visually pleasing and realistic whilst the action is as you would expect with lows followed by a training montage and then highs. The final scene gives you a reasonable adrenaline boost as the entirely predictable plot unravels before your eyes. Relaxing fun from the land of the rising sun, its just a shame about the main character being a complete douche.

(br) wrote: Shoot, you can keep your potatoes and wolves, because if I was to privatize my own state, I don't know if I would go with Idaho, although it is better than Iowa. I can't believe that Gus Van Sant didn't make this "My Own Private Oregon" or something... which isn't to say that there isn't a point in which the leads end up in Portland somewhere along the way. Man, Van Sant sure loves him some Portland, about as much as men, and he was able to put gay themes in here, so I reckon this is a definitive film for him. Yeah, as if "Stand By Me" didn't feel a little fruity already, enjoy this spin-off in which Chris Chambers goes gay and hooks up with Keanu Reeves. No wonder Wil Wheaton is such a big gay activist, seeing as how he missed his opportunity to actually play with River Phoenix, a secret to success which is reflected in Reeves, because, of all people to be driven to notoriety with Phoenix, how did it end up being Reeves and not Wheaton? I joke, but this feels about as much like the sequel to "Stand By Me" as it does like William Shakespeare's "Henry IV" and "Henry v", and if you're wondering how, well, it's because it doesn't feel that much like either "Stand By Me" or Shakespeare equally. Really, I can't figure out what this film is going for a lot of the time, for although this film is mighty decent, even with its being about men's lack of decency, it's hard to get a grip on anything about it, including its characters' depths. Immediate development is seriously lacking in this often very sudden character piece, and quite frankly, gradual characterization isn't too much more extensive, relying on the occasional piece of forced exposition to punctuate long lapses in character focus that storytelling works to fill with mere excess. Style isn't the only thing placed over focus in this film, as filler all too often claims the focus of the narrative, thinning it, until storytelling slips into bland aimlessness that would be less frustrating if all of this bloating didn't eventually lead to unevenness. As big an issue as anything is a disjointed structure that, whether intentional or accidental, takes advantage of all of the simultaneous bloating and lack of flesh-out to jar between tonal extremes almost as badly as it jars between stages in the plot whose inconsistency gets to be so considerable it's all but unreal. The film is all over the place at times with its layering its disjointed narrative, yet no matter how much the film gets to be overblown to the point of convolution, Gus Van Sant can't quite overshadow natural shortcomings to this near-inconsequential story concept, and it doesn't help that when he doesn't bloat substance, he expends it for style. I've alluded to it time and again, but when you come down to it, the biggest problem with this film is overstylization, which plays a large part in the narrative disjointing, but doesn't end there, prominently playing with strange imagery, frantic structuring and other classic forms of artistic bloating that leave the final product to feel more ambitious with its style rather than its substance. Now, such inspiration to style endears in a lot of ways, and it helps that substance is still pretty well-handled, but considering how enjoyable this drama is even with its placement of style over substance, one can only imagine what is being lost in the wake of underdevelopment, dragging, unevenness and overstylization as the film tumbles just short of genuinely rewarding. Still, like I said, the effort comes closer to rewarding than it would have in the hands of a lesser filmmaker, and if it had less solid style to overplay. There's not much to the musical style of this film, but it's well worth waiting for when it does come into play, uniquely substituting original score work with many a decent, entertaining tune that livens up the flavor of this stylistically lively film, like cinematography by John Campbell and Eric Alan Edwards that, while often flat lighting and coloration, is well-toned and framed enough to help draw your eyes toward nifty visuals. It helps that Sara Burton knows how to manage locations, distinguishing each setting in this film in a way that doesn't simply immerse you into handsome environments, but gives you a sense of dynamicity that, of course, defines the sense of adventure that drives this drama's narrative. I guess that the story concept stands to have a little more depth to its dramatics, as surely as its interpretation stands to be more focused and less stylistically overblown, but on paper, this film's subject matter dealing with two men bonding, maybe as more than friends, on their adventure to uncover their pasts and find paths to the future does a lot of things uniquely, and has its own dramatic value to both be done justice and betrayed by Gus Van Sant. Van Sant's script is something of a mess with its overstylized structuring which thins down exposition and bloats filler to the point of serious focal unevenness, but its wit gets it by a long way on the back of sharp, sometimes pseudo-Shakespearean dialogue, and certain genuinely thoughtful moments in characterization and dramatic set piece crafting, sold by direction that is just as effectively thoughtful. Van Sant's style, while often overwrought, is just as often thoroughly lively, and when all of it settles for the sake of dramatic tenderness, Van Sant is tasteful enough to bite with subtlety and grace to thematic and human depths, anchored by strong performances. Plenty of supporting players, such as the charismatic William Richert or the affecting Chiara Caselli, have their time in the spotlight, but that's mostly reserved for leads Keanu Reeves and River Phoenix, who both share dynamite chemistry and flaunt just as electric individual charisma, with Phoenix particularly standing out with some powerful emotional highlights that drive a sense of anxiety in someone struggling with his identity as an unconventional lover, and as a young man seeking the truth about his past. Phoenix's powerful performance, the last one that he would deliver in his tragically brief lifetime, carries the film when really allowed to flesh out, and I wish that more of the film was nearly as inspired, but, with that said, there's enough inspiration to style and substance for the final product to at least border on rewarding, even though it could have gone so much further. Overall, the film is either seriously underdeveloped or seriously overblown, to the point of providing both unevenness in focus and pacing, as well as tone, and a feel for certain natural shortcomings that are brought more to life by much too much overstylization, which hold the final product shy of a rewarding state that is still all but achieved, thanks to the solid soundtrack, handsome cinematography, immersive taste in location, and worthy subject matter that is driven by highlights in Gus Van Sant's scripting and direction, and by many a strong performance, - the strongest of which being courtesy of the charming Keanu Reeves and the outstanding River Phoenix - that make "My Own Private Idaho" an entertaining, often biting and all around borderline, if only borderline rewarding human drama. 2.75/5 - Decent
