(jp) wrote: This starts off promising, Woodley is the perfect lovable high school girl once again. This great exploration of a young adult girl coming of age without a mother is a rich topic. unfortunately the third act it all falls apart in stupidity. I don't believe that even it it was well directed it could compensate for the bad writing. A great title and Shailene Woodley naked cant save this.

(it) wrote: Like a cheap old demo with a Philip Glass soundtrack, consisting mainly of CGI and filtered archive video, missing most of the aesthetics of the previous qatsis. The message is about the violent current day human life, which explains some of the visuals leaving it depressingly non-beautiful.
(kr) wrote: Don't get me wrong - I'm against adultery, but this movie works for me because of the comic chemistry between the two leads. Based on the 1975 Bernard Slade play of the same name, this screen adaptation stars Alan Alda and Ellen Burstyn as a pair of married lovers, who meet once each year for 26 years. Though a movie about marital infidelity may not be one's cup of tea, this movie works because it doesn't focus so much on the lust-driven aspect of the affair, but more about two people who find themselves in circumstances where they really care for each other, yet are strongly committed to their marriages. Alan Alda plays George, a married accountant with three kids, while Ellen Burstyn plays Doris, a California housewife.The pair's relationship evolves over the course of 26 years, as each time they meet [in the movie, it kind of jumps every 5 years , beginning with 1951, then on to 1956...1961 until 1977], viewers get to see how George and Doris have 'grown' as individuals, and also how the years have shaped their relationship. They develop an intimacy that goes beyond physical closeness, sharing pieces of each other's lives, and confiding their innermost desires and worries. I truly came to care about both of these characters. The really hilarious moments, e.g. george being placed in a situation where he has to help Doris through labour pains is balanced by really poignant moments when one comforts the other over a loved one's death.This is a movie that I first watched a few years ago, never knowing of its existence until I saw it on Netflix. And since then, I've watched it numerous times - drawn in part to the great comic chemistry shared between Burstyn and Alda, and also the wonderful soundtrack and archival footage of historical events through the years 1951-1977. This is one that will have you laughing and crying!

(es) wrote: One of the best endings in film...not the best movie, per se...or even the best thriller. But, the ending makes the movie payoff. You really do not see it coming...at least I didn't. Doris Day shines as the tortured wife of an overly hardworking businessman. She begins hearing voices and then starts getting crank calls. Is she making this up to get more attention from her husband? Is she really in danger? And if so, by whom? Being a huge Hitchcock fan, I?m always skeptical of thrillers that try to copy the image and style of the Master of Suspense. Thankfully, I feel this one is not something Alfred Hitchcock would have disappointed with.

(gb) wrote: A horrifying war film that has lost none of it's potency, Paths Of Glory is still in some respects ahead of it's time. After a failed attack which had already been deemed impossible, three men are sent out to slaughter in order for their superiors to show an "example." These reckless men in power whose chief concerns are the medals on their uniforms originally wanted even more men to die for their folly but settled on these three poor individuals. I was stunned at Kubrick's mastery of his camera and his story, particularly because it's not an easy story to tell. The trial scene was incredibly effective, with the general in his lavish uniform, sitting in an even more lavish chair overseeing a total sham of a trial. Only Kirk Douglas' Colonel seems to call for justice, a call that falls on deaf ears.
