The Quiet American
Cynical British journalist Fowler (Michael Redgrave) falls in love with a young Vietnamese woman, but is dismayed when a naïve U.S. official (Audie Murphy) also begins vying for the girl’s attention. In retaliation, Fowler informs the communists that the American is selling arms to their enemy. Director Joseph L. Mankiewicz's drama paints a rosier picture of U.S. involvement in French Indochina than Graham Greene’s provocative 1955 novel.

The Quiet American torrent reviews
(mx) wrote: A dark and smart tale of deception, vanity and betrayal. David Fincher masterfully tells this disturbing love story and continues to prove that he is one of the greatest filmmakers working in Hollywood.
(gb) wrote: Interesting movie. I mean, the concept was not that original but there was some structure to it which made it new. I liked the mystery/suspense/horror scenes but I hated how the movie progressed in some ways. Like, there was no further investigation or reveal of the 'things' in the sewer tunnels. The lack of features the 'things' had was good at building up suspense but after a while, got kinda annoying. Overall, still a pretty good movie but could have used more improvements.

For years I sat on the fence when it came to the Branch Davidians because documentaries or news stories like this would come out and sway me from my general opinion that religious sects and stockpiles of assault rifles don't tend to mix too well. The Rules of Engagement clearly sides with the Branch Davidians and questions the competence and leadership of various law enforcement agencies. Very convincing, but I'm still on the fence. After all, I too wouldn't mind having an AK-47 around to guard my leftover Y2K stash of toilet paper and Sam's Choice beans when the Apocalypse comes, and I wouldn't want that inalienable right taken away from me because the ATF thinks I'm a religious freak.

(ru) wrote: Often called Jean Rollin's most personal film, Lips of Blood is yet another erotic vampire film with artistic aspirations from a director who goes to the well a little too often. While there are interesting moments that focus on the nature of memory and its connection with trauma and horror, the film as a whole does little to distinguish itself from Rollin's other films or erotic vampire films from the 70s more generally.

(it) wrote: Dennis Hopper stars as a young sailor who is on leave at a small sea-shore town in California. He meets Mora (Linda Lawson), a young slightly odd woman, who he immediately falls in love with. During this courtship he begins to notice odd things leading him to begin to question if Mora isn't human but is some type of succubus from the sea. Night Tide is a moody, atmospheric oddity that is one of those films that seems to have been forgotten with time. Centrally the film deals a lot with Loneliness as the sailor early on just seems to be looking for some type of connection. There really is some great atmosphere created around this mystery and the film continually keeps the viewer guessing much like our main protagonist. The film's score was another odd aspect of the film, with this 60's beatnik jazz type music which was fun but felt sorta out of place to me. One part I really loved was a particularly nightmare sequence where our protagonist is essentially engaged in Octo-sex; it's creepy yet strangely hilarious.
(es) wrote: 22 Jump Street is very goofy and isn't afraid to poke fun at itself. And that's a good thing. Most of this film's draw is its easy humor. Schmidt and Jenko balance each other well and provide a suitably awkward bromance. Jenko kills the college scene playing football and joining a frat, while Schmidt is a total dweeb, left to watching Netflix and going to poetry open mic's. What's interesting is that most of the conflict isn't between the cops and the villain, but between the leading men. Schmidt and Jenko struggle to accomplish any part of their mission as their friendship falters and they grow apart. There is little evidence of a plot or any structure in this movie. It is largely a bunch of one outrageous gags, one random event after another that somehow concludes in a ridiculous finale on Spring Break. Some of my favorite moments were when the Captain finds out about Schmidt and his daughter and when the drug dealer and Schmidt have a fist fight filled with weird sexual tension. I think the strength of this movie lies in its self-deprecating humor and its dynamite leads.
