Mr. Ogata lives a complicated life: he's is a pornographer making two skin flicks per day and trying to stay beneath the radar screen of the local mob; he deeply loves his ailing wife Haru who's cursed by the restless spirit of her dead first husband; he also has a mistress, a step-son who wants to go to university, and a step-daughter entering adolescence. He lusts after his step-daughter, and he asks Haru if he can marry her. Haru agrees to his plan, signs over her business to him, and a crisis ensues when Ogata uses her nest egg to buy equipment so he and his pals can set up their own film processing lab. Surreal images and events weave their way into Ogata's life.

Darren W (jp) wrote: Painful, rarely told story of the 3 million people who starved to death in Henan Provence, China in 1942. Powerfully told from a very personal viewpoint. Worth watching if you want a reality check on the stupidity of governments and war.
Indu N (ag) wrote: If cinema can be summarized as the poetry of sights and sounds in motion, Cafe Lumiere is such a dedication to Japan. The movie is beautifully understated and moves in an easy pace displaying no major jerks or struggles on screen, yet managing to endear.
Marilyn H (es) wrote: The movie was very "interesting". I watched the entire movie on a stationary bike at home. The only reason I forced myself watching the whole movie was because I couldn't access to the TV remote control to turn it off. If you have nothing better to do other than exercising on a bike, I would recommend this movie.

Zoran S (ca) wrote: As a whole it's average but that's because the Coppola film is horrible. The other two are decent.
Robert L (ag) wrote: I watched this film as a kid, and, for some reason, it always stuck with me. Twenty years and a rewatch later, and it was probably because of the breasts. Repetition characterizes this coming-of-age story about a young boy who, like a dog, is in need of a home. I don't plan on watching it again.

Patryk C (br) wrote: Poirot on a case that gives the shivers. At a remote, beautiful, yet mysterious island things don't always go as planned. When a rich woman is murdered and everybody has an alibi, Poirot starts an investigation of the most difficult kind. While it might seem impossible to find the killer, the clues start to add up perfectly in the classic act of show-and-tell.

Michael H (fr) wrote: A great cast in a very good Noir thriller. While the story eventually escapes the bounds of credibility, it holds together much longer that it seems it should have - and even when it gets away, it's a quick sprint to the end so it doesn't diminish the movie much. For most of the movie it's great fun watching these characters plot and scheme and maneuver and manipulate and to watch Claudette Colbert come to pieces.
Dan H (br) wrote: I've never been a fan of the haunted mirror horror film sub-genre but Oculus takes this stale premise and successfully breathes new life into it, crafting a fascinating film that is hard to tear your eyes away from. It also signals the arrival of a strong new horror character in The Lasser Glass, which has a rich history behind it and a vast array of mind games at its disposal. This thing isn't afraid to play dirty if that's what it takes. With a pretty good script, fantastic editing, strong acting, and an intriguing plot filled with a good deal of mystery, Oculus manages to be a very fun and surreal thrill ride that I wouldn't mind heading out to see again. It's easily one of the better modern day horror films and definitely the best haunted mirror film I've seen. Directed by Mike Flannigan, written by Mike Flannigan and Jeff Howard, and edited by Mike Flannigan. It's not often you get a triple threat, and I'm going to say Flannigan is one guy we should maybe keep an eye on.
