Most people don't think about singing when they think about revolutions. But song was the weapon of choice when, between 1986 and 1991, Estonians sought to free themselves from decades of Soviet occupation. During those years, hundreds of thousands gathered in public to sing forbidden patriotic songs and to rally for independence. "The young people, without any political party, and without any politicians, just came together ... not only tens of thousands but hundreds of thousands ... to gather and to sing and to give this nation a new spirit," remarks Mart Laar, a Singing Revolution leader featured in the film and the first post-Soviet Prime Minister of Estonia. "This was the idea of the Singing Revolution." James Tusty and Maureen Castle Tusty's "The Singing Revolution" tells the moving story of how the Estonian people peacefully regained their freedom--and helped topple an empire along the way.

Nice performances from two strong leads, but the writing is flawed in parts. It's a nice film, but it could have been a lot better.
Joshua D (br) wrote: Revolutionary Road is a clean spectacle thanks to Sam Mendes direction and Winslet's performance is phenomenal, yet this extremely heavy drama leaves its audience no room to breath and the whole picture sort of gets caught in itself.

Derek D (au) wrote: Lightning doesn't strike twice as this sequel falls completely flat on its face. A lot of the same from the first movie, but somewhat different in tone. Even Geilgud's ghostly appearance in this movie can't save this film. But I enjoyed it.

Simon D (es) wrote: I can't say that I've seen an Armenian film before and I'm sure that this is not the one to use as a guidestick for any more that I might see. They do explain at the start of the film that they will try to depict the life of a poet through some kind of metaphoric imagery using traditional Armenian stuff. So I was expecting something a bit surreal but I thought that I would also get some sort of story out of the film. This is impossible unless you are well informed about whoever the story was about. If you were just told not to bother trying to understand it but just watch the film as a piece of dadaist art with some small insight into Armenian life, then I'd have probably enjoyed it more. I just feel that I've seen a freaky film and I'm too stupid to understand it.

Wayne K (ag) wrote: Uniting one of Hollywood's greatest talents with one of its biggest stars, Donnie Brasco takes us deep into the heart of the Mafia, and into the mind of a character who is tasked with infiltrating it. With the allure of the underworld drawing him in, our hero becomes increasingly torn between his loyalty to the mob and his allegiance to his country. Depp gives a controlled but intense performance and never goes over the top. Pacino keeps his famous madness in check, delivering an enjoyable turn as the fatherly figure, even if his dialogue is unintelligible in several scenes. I found much of it to be too slackly paced and lacking in action, and didn't get to like any of the side characters. But the story is strong, as are the performances, and from what I've heard it's very faithful to real life. It didn't do much for me, but has too many fine points to ignore.

To make you feel special. And I think that that's true. I know that that's true because... because I felt it. The other night, I was out with this guy that I work with and... I work at the zoo and... and anyway, it was only for one night, but it just... it felt different, you know.
