(ca) wrote: Whereas the novella by Niccolo Ammaniti feels intimate and very much one boy's story, the film has had to try to compensate for a lack of interior monologue. The fact that most of the action is confined to a basement leads to other challenges, too. So, only mildly successful, with Bertolucci's safe directorial hand meaning that it doesn't descend into irretrievable territories. Was hoping for better; but this swings on the role of the half sister, who's life on the page is much less prone to the excesses of having to show her in pictures.

(br) wrote: I really didn't know what to think of the film. Other than the fact that it is a very effective drama. However, it was all over the place and I got dizzy trying to keep up with all the different plots. The acting was good but sadly this is not one of Robert Altman's best movies.
(ru) wrote: Zombi Holocaust is a Cannible film, Zombie film and Mad scientist film thrown together to make one really gory movie. Some scenes are similar to Lucio Fulci's Zombi 2 such as it starts in New York and then they go into the tropical island, the Zombies in the island's church. Even two of the actors from Zombi 2 are in Zombi Holocaust.The scenes with the Cannibles killing and eating the people are nice and gory, the Zombie make up is good and kind of similar to Zombi 2's Zombie make up. One problem is that we don't see much of the Zombies at first but halfway through the film they do show up.The Mad Scientist elements are something new since Zombi 2 didn't have a man trying to create Zombies for his research and uses the Cannibles for his experiments. Zombi Holocaust is a great Zombie flick with some good gore effects. Check this out.

(us) wrote: A "simple" Appalachian converts to Christianity and then goes to WWI.There is a scene in which York is struck by lightning, which propels him to "find God." While it purports to be based on a true story, shit like that makes me doubt its veracity. What's worse is the film's treatment of York, who is portrayed without even enough sense to tie his shoes, yet by the end of the film, we're supposed to revere his bravery and conversion from conscientious objector to violence. This characterization - I balk at calling anyone in this film a "character" - not only paints Americans and Appalachians as decidedly anti-intellectual, but it also suggests that Christianity is mutable enough to be jettisoned at the first call of violent duty.Overall, this film is both insulting and ridiculous.
