Abstract, beautifully photographed and nearly silent but for limited narration, this plotless arthouse outing from Lithuanian cult film director Sharunas Bartas pays tribute to a huge, old lakeside manor and Lithuanian culture.

Dean M (br) wrote: Interesting Chinese history film of Jackie Chan's 100th movie, more political manifesto than film and this marks the centenary of the Xinhai Revolution when China threw out the Quing dynasty and its famed Last Emperor. Though conceived on a grand scale and stylishly shot, this is an epic talkfest.For those who are expecting Jackie Chan to create something new with his stunts and comical acts, they will be disappointed. 1911 marks Chan taking a serious role in his movie career by telling the remarkable chapter of the China history, which can be seen as another breakthrough after his role as a Chinese illegal immigrant paving a better life at Japan in Shinjuku Incident. (2009) As the director, he did not create any stunts or scenes of war for the sake of pleasing the audience who are seeing more action from him. War scenes are created to tell the pain people go through in a revolution, just as what was mentioned in the film, 'Revolution is not about death, but rather, paving a better future for the future generation.'

Jesse O (au) wrote: Objectively I'd say this was a very good movie, but I just find that the movie is excessively sentimental and the acting can be downright awful at times. The problem is the movie, from beginning to end, is very sentimental. And that's just not something that I find to be good storytelling. In the end, though, I think this is a story that deserves to be told but not in this manner. The movie's cinematography also isn't particularly good but that's the least of my issues. The acting is hit and miss, there's some scenes, mostly involving the kids, that are simply embarrassing. I think the movie does a good job at presenting Nong Toom as a very likable character that you can sort of root for and his search for what he truly wants in his life. The fighting scenes are decent but they are a little repetitive. So really...it's got a good story but its sentimentality and poor acting keep it from being much more than it could be.

Julio C (ca) wrote: Me parecio muy interesante y apasionante esta biopic de Rimbaud, como la declaracion de un artista autentico y honesto al mundo, con esa personalidad irreverente, explosiva y siempre asertiva, en contraparte a Verlaine, inseguro, dependiente y a veces ruin. Grandes actores, gran puesta en escena y gran historia.

Jason D (it) wrote: Mildly amusing movie about a student going out to the countryside to assist to an animal researcher (played by the underused Terence Stamp, who is always a pleasure to watch) and his monkey pal Link, who is too damn smart for his own good. Soon, the Stamp disappears and the monkey spends the next hundred minutes tormenting and stalking young Elizabeth Shue, and then tries to kill her. Has some good moments, but slightly slow paced. Director Richard Franklin still manages to create some suspense to it!

christian d (ca) wrote: The cinematography is gorgeous and this is obviously a well made movie but it drags on for far too long and it tells the story of a romance I couldn't care less about. Meryl Streep, as always, is lovely, but I'm not really sure what accent she was going for here. Though I admire the movie cinematically, this movie left me untouched.
