Ingmar Bergman’s The Magician (Ansiktet) is an engaging, brilliantly conceived tale of deceit from one of cinema’s premier illusionists. Max von Sydow stars as Dr. Vogler, a nineteenth-century traveling mesmerist and peddler of potions whose magic is put to the test in Stockholm by the cruel, eminently rational royal medical adviser Dr. Vergérus. The result is a diabolically clever battle of wits that’s both frightening and funny, shot in rich, gorgeously gothic black and white.

(ru) wrote: this is actually a fairly entertaining 80's slasher flick, especially considering i'd never heard of the movie up until now and my expectations were extremely low. decent written story for a low budget movie and enjoyable for what it was. just don't expect a lot of good death scenes because there's only really one in my opinion.
(br) wrote: Good for a few laughs, The Peanut Butter Solution is filled with awkwardly creepy moments as well as some Canadian-isms that make it feel even more strange than it already is.
(kr) wrote: It's almost easy to forget at times that all of the cast are children. A gangster film with kids, and cream instead of bullets? Suitably goofy with an array of incredibly catchy songs? Sold!
(ca) wrote: Ordet is a solid, but disappointing film. The direction from Carl Theodor Dreyer is expectedly strong, the cinematography is inspired with some of the shots being quite intriguing and the film is clever and very interesting, but because it was so slow paced and lacked focus, it never utilized its premise particularly well and ended up being more of an intriguing than a truly spiritual experience.
(nl) wrote: The Beginning is a grisly horror movie. And a middling one at that, lacking the mature religious subject matter of the original.
(kr) wrote: Nina Forever is bizarre gore soaked high concept horror. Ghastly yet gorgeous, this morbid tale balances the uncomfortable topic of grief with deadpan dark humour and sultry edginess. After Rob's girlfriend Nina dies in a car crash, Rob unsuccessfully attempts suicide. As he begins to recover from his grief he falls in love with co-worker, Holly. Their relationship is tested however when Nina's bloody self rises from the sheets, sarcastically interrupting them whenever they have sex. Brothers, Ben and Chris Blaine deliver a unique portrayal of letting go in their directorial feature debut. This twisted tale blurs the genre lines with its substantial amount of heartbreak underneath the gore. The subject matter deftly explores serious and relatable issues like grief and the possible impossibility of moving on, which stands far more uncomfortable then any macabre scenes. The twisted love triangle brings an emotionally affecting level to the story. The performances from all seem authentically sensitive. The tragedy of the situation is disturbing but tender. Fiona O'Shaughnessy's (Nina) performance is both repulsive, in the way she swings her lifeless corpse around, and hypnotic in the nous of her poetic sense of dialogue. Oozing sick yet sexy eroticism with a dark comedic edge, this inventive film is a superb little gem in the horror genre.
