Price, a former hitman, is struggling to cope with retirement. He left the assassination business to live the "easy life." However, retirement arrived with its own agenda. It was not the instant peace and calm that Price expected. Rather, it was emptiness, boredom, and, worst of all, restlessness. The Last Lullaby plummets Price back into his old life and forces him into a corner from which he may never escape. Price's old ways no longer work for him when his heart opens, and he finds life beyond his profession. The tension finally boils, as Price must decide to close himself off again or open himself up to a world beyond his control.

This one manages to walk the line between both without ever really crossing it, and that's refreshing. There's also a good amount of humor, and I got a lot more than I expected considering I've never read the book.

This is just a camera following Hunter and friends. Great scene where he tells Alex Cox what's what and some intimate footage of Johnny Depp getting into character for the Fear and Loathing movie. Highly recommended for Hunter fans.

It is a beautifully filmed story about an American doctor who is fatigued with the medical system in USA and goes to India on "trek". There he has a series if incidents which finally involve him in a free medical clinic in Calcutta's poorest slum. I wanted to like this movie as it is beautifully told and filmed. However Swayze's Dialogue and responses to thing that happen are so crass barbarian as to be insulting to the intelligence. Not sure if it was the screenwriter or Swayze's influence which created all the horrible American slang and Americanisms in Swayze's dialogue. What would have otherwise been a four or five star movie is a two star movie due to this horrible dialogue. His speech and mannerisms are offensive to me as an Educated American. (A medical doctor talks and reacts like this?? NO) This film is emotional and compassionate and has a nice ending but somebody has to take the blame for the horrible string of words that come out of the role of the doctor played by Swayze. from eberts review: " City of Joy seems a little too "written," too conformed to the rituals of Hollywood screenplays. There's so much interesting stuff in the movie we are prepared to forgive that, but still, thinking back on the film, it wouldn't have suffered if the entire plot involving Swayze and Collins had been dropped, and Joffe had simply told the story of the rickshaw man. He, and his dilemma, will be there in Calcutta long after visiting surgeons and dedicated nurses have been absorbed into the city's relentless flow." 2 stars

Ethan P (ag) wrote: American Graffiti is a time capsule. It's a portrait of two things, small town America in the 1960's and the awkward, daunting transition into college. And the film paints a vivid picture of those two things. The plot begins and ends at a drive-in fast food joint, complete with rollerblading waitresses and a giant neon sign. The characters are dressed as leather clad greasers and plaid button down geeks who spurt 60's slang effortlessly, listen to Rock and Roll and drive hot rods and old Thunderbirds. The undeniable appeal of the film is its nostalgic detail in the characters, set design, music and costuming. It's impeccable. And none of it feels glitzy or sentimental like Grease, it feels plainly and authentically like a real day 40 years ago. It's also genuinely youthful and light. It's a story about a bunch of teenagers who do things teenagers would do and say things they would say. It has goofy one liners, melodramatic romance and bursts of violence and excitement. In capturing the mood of both that period of time and that age, American Graffiti is excellent.For how detailed and effortlessly authentic it is, it isn't actually all that interesting, though. Nothing really happens and even though we get to know the characters well and identify with them, very little takes place. One kid decides not to go to college and his best friend does (they foil each other, big deal). They drive around and talk and drive around some more. Every once in a while there's a fight or a kiss, but overall this film is just like any average night back then and has little reason for being. Maybe that's its purpose, but I didn't anticipate it and therefore found it odd. It's listless and uncertain and, in that way, much like I remember being the few days before leaving for college. It's hard to critique it because it does what it set out to so well, but it has no real drive or narrative. It's all over the place, just like a night with your high school friends so often is.

Directed by Mel Stuart(of Willa Wonka and the Chocolate Factory)this was a grand event which the climatic concert of the seventh annual Watts Summer Festival that was held at the Los Angeles Coliseum before an estimated crowd of 70,000 in the summer of 1972. This was also commemorating the 1965 Watts riots that engulf South Central Los Angeles. If you want to experience the Memphis sound that was Stax Records then you're in for a treat. Especially for those who saw this masterpiece concert film when it was in theatres in 1973. You have some of the biggest stars from Stax to perform on one awesome incredible show. You have some of the biggest stars ever former Motown great Kim Weston(who sings the black national anthem "Lift Every Voice and Sing")to some of the great performers ever to come out of Stax Records... You have on one incredible show "The Emotions","The Staple Singers", "The Soul Children", "The Dramatics", "Johnnie Taylor", "Carla Thomas", "The Bar-Kays", "Luther Ingram",and featuring acts from Rufus Thomas(doing the Funky Chicken in front huge crowd of folks),and the incredible Issac Hayes(in gold chains attire singing some of his greatest hits). Also onboard this too was some of the social commentary of the times with everyday people talking about the struggles of the streets not to mention seeing the Rev. Jesse Jackson at his prime,and the classic comedy stylings of the legendary Richard Pryor. A Must See for those who love classic black cinema. ...
