(mx) wrote: One hell of a great horror film. Quality scares, multi-faceted characters, and a sense of menace make this scary film a cut above the rest, pardon my pun.
(fr) wrote: This movie is aesthetically beautiful, but the characters are shallow, transparent, and unoriginal. If I wanted to watch a bunch of absorbed assholes drink wine, I would go to Kashmiers in Scottsdale.
(kr) wrote: J'ai bien aim, surtout que je ne suis pas un fan invtr de Schrader. Une oeuvre la fois "originale" et sobre. Bonne performance de Goldblum.
(gb) wrote: This wasn't bad for a Dolph Lundgren flick... Pretty straight forward and gritty. He's not the best director but definitely not the worst. Cookie cutter shot selection and so on, but still entertaining.
(fr) wrote: this is a really good movie!
(fr) wrote: something different and from the heart it has been made
(gb) wrote: 3 stars for Monica Bellucci
(ru) wrote: Decent enough comedy with a fine cast. There's some funny spots such as Mark McKinney as a dog psychiatrist who takes his job very seriously.
(jp) wrote: Indochine is a movie with many themes and all of them have been justified mostly based on strong performances and deep background score. In first quarter it resembled to "Out of Africa" but soon it changed it's tone and at a point it sounded like "The Bachelor" but quickly it left both those movies behind and rebellious circumstances made the movie what it turned out to be, A life long Journey.

(ca) wrote: it was good but thought the first one was better, it was a good film, Steve Guttenberg starred in it and I love it on DVD, it starred Don Ameche, Wilford Brimley, Steve Guttenberg and Maureen Stapleton
(kr) wrote: I have a lot of trouble with films featuring unreliable narrators. While I understand that films about a character with a frayed sense of reality need to be as chaotic and fractured as their psyche, they tend to alienate me emotionally. Robert Altman's "Images" does those things, of course, but what makes this a step above similarly themed films like, "Persona," "Black Swan" or "The Double Life of Veronique," is that it's rather subtle. Films featuring a character confronting their double are usually fraught with ham-fisted symbolism and overly obvious motifs. I'm not saying "Images" is without these things but Altman has the finesse to blend them, more or less, seamlessly into the film. With the help of fluid cinematography by Vilmos Zsigmond, a dynamic and precise Susannah York and a haunting score by John Williams, "Images" is able to transcend the normal pitfalls of this microcosm of a genre and remain a serious piece of artistic expression.

(fr) wrote: I enjoy all of them and even when is seems to silly they work so great together,
(gb) wrote: "The Rules of the Game" is one of my favorite films of all time so it's really a wonder why I haven't seen more Jean Renoir films. This film is not as great as the aforementioned masterpiece but still contains some great direction and performances. It's a noir-ish film about a love triangle and a murder on the railroads based on the novel by Emile Zola.
(nl) wrote: Not very many people are aware of this film, that falls into the category of those great 80s thrillers. A lot of them try real hard but come up justthismuch short. I am always throroughly satisfied after a viewing of this picture. Of course, that will happen when you have actors like Steenburgen and McDowall to satsify you, right? But this film also has some good writing to back it up, right? Best enjoyed on a dark and windy night with popcorn and someone to grab on to.
(ag) wrote: Good. Scenes are often rather static. The main caper scene is reduced to a somewhat confusing montage. A lot of the acting is rather flat. The writing was really good though.
(au) wrote: This plays more like a filmed stage play, or else I might have rated it even higher. Unique story, very well played with some weighty concepts bandied about.
