jeroen v (nl) wrote: Bit of a pedestrian effort from the Gervais/Merchant team this one. The cliches keep stacking up around the few interesting characters that populate this movie. Unfortunately the central three guys are not the interesting ones but the ones with the cliches. Rewrite!
Michael C (nl) wrote: neither wholly an adaptation nor a biography of the author, "kafka" borrows elements from its namesake's personal and political lives, and balances them on a precarious truss-work of political intrigue, paranoia, murder, corruption, and the inane bureaucratic convolution for which the author is best known. where "naked lunch" fails to effectively capture either the eponymous work or the author that penned it (being far too distracted with the illustration of burroughs's bizarre metaphors), this succeeds, even if one imagines the structure grew from necessity. i mean, the authors could have remade "the trial," but it's been done and doesn't offer many surprises. there's the moralistic "metamorphosis," but subjecting the audience to a story told in narration over the glassy eyes of a giant cockroach might get to be a bit much. then there's "the castle" ... which ends mid-sent... ence. so they cleverly borrowed from all three, inserting the author in place of the usual protagonist "k," and including glimpses into his real political ideology and personal entanglements.it's also a beautifully shot and sound-designed film, reminiscent of lynch's "the elephant man" in places. other parts bring to mind the much later, and much more contrived and less enduring, "sin city" -- especially some genuinely creepy moments involving the main henchman.

Simon D (ca) wrote: After finding out recently that Mel Brooks made more bad films than good ones, I was very pleased to find this was in the latter category. The cast in this is very impressive but the real star is Marty Feldman who provided the best comedy moments. This is generally a pretty funny film and well worth a watch.

Drea M (ru) wrote: The twist made every minute of this movie, worth it! That, and John Travolta's performance. I will forever be a fan of everything he does. Definitely worth watching, and will definitely recommend it. Will watch again!!
Timothy A (it) wrote: A somewhat less Disneyfied tale of 70s excess than the original release, and one that avoids the fairytale ending. Nonetheless, it's still notably sanitised, and at best it's a bog standard modern take on the Orpheus tale with not a lot to add.
