(es) wrote: Excellent movie...Half Moon is a road movie with a difference. An elderly man Moma (portrayed with great range and nuance by Ismail Ghaffari), a celebrity singer in his native Iraqi Kurdistan, sets out by bus from Iran with an entourage of his musician sons to his homeland to perform in a large public concert. With seven months of rehearsals, official permits and visas carefully arranged, nothing could go wrong, right? Well, this is border country between bitter enemies Iran, Iraq and the highly marginalized Kurds who are basically a dispossessed people without a country and held in contempt by both countries as well as Turkey. This film illustrates what can go wrong.While beautifully filmed in some beautifully stark landscapes, the real richness of Half Moon - like most Iranian films screened here - is in the simplicity of the story and the attention to detail to the struggles of seemingly mundane activities. The cultural aspects are especially fascinating. The authority of Moma as the family patriarch is evident; his middle aged sons all hold him in high esteem and cower before him. Not unexpectedly,as Iran does not allow women to sing in public, there are specific issues with involving a woman in such a cultural endeavour.The family and social dynamics depicted breathe life into this little gem of a film. Music is a universal language that binds people, so when contempt is shown by the Iranian border guards, it has a powerful effect on the audience.It was interesting to see the advancement of technologies such as cell phones and wireless Internet laptops creeping into these otherwise isolated communities. The film is full of beautifully understated performances and naturalistic humour and drama. I highly recommend it

I mean the guy only made 1 movie and that was flop also and now DRONA??? on top of it he said its going to be way better than KRRISH...Now I wonder what Abhisekh and Priyanka thought of the movie after watching it, Its the biggest flop movie for both. The only thing i liked about this movie is Priyanka's Oop Cha song and the choreography. Other than its a boring movie. On 2007 the most boring movie was Ram Gopal Verma Ki AAG, and Drona makes 2008's boring movie. Abhisekh looks out of form and looks very confusing, Priyanka does her character well and her actions are better. Kay Kay Menon is horrible. Jaya Bachchan is ok in brief role. Over all STAY AWAY.

(nl) wrote: Great direction and use of lighting (similar to that of Suspiria and Inferno), but bogged down by its horrible acting and forgettable characters. The film tries to hard to be good, taking itself too seriously, when it should be rolling with its silly premise. In effect, it's not good enough to be a good horror film, but can't stand as a so-bad-it's-good film.
(ca) wrote: This film started off well, and it drew me in at first. However, once the first part of the story resolved itself, the rest of the film seemed to drag on a bit.I wonder how this film would have turned out if Kurosawa had lived long enough to get around to making and directing it???
(es) wrote: Ang Lee delivers a heart-warming drama centered on themes of family and relationships between men and women. Lee masterfully weaves together multiple story threads focusing on the lives of the father and his three daughters. Eat, drink, man, woman made me laugh, reflect, and HUNGRY!
(ca) wrote: I really shouldn't be judging this film, as it's not FOR me. This is a film for the jazz aficionado, with enough big names to make the people who live and breathe this stuff breathless by the sheer brilliance of the musicians and the music. No part of it is cut and limited to make this the ultimate jazz fan's film, but it does nothing for the layperson. The story is trite and almost devoid of conflict, with the tension resolving itself at the halfway point and then settling into a cool, smooth groove that flows on for a very long time. Overlong and amateurish in almost every regard, most people will dismiss the film as a cliche. The soundtrack is absolutely spectacular, yes, but it's all jazz, and those who have no understanding of it will soon tire of hearing what sounds like the same sax solo over and over. The cinematically inclined audience can appreciate some really good camera work with wonderful panning that fully embraces each and every scene, but there's just so much that music and cinematography can do, and clocking in at over 2 hours, I guarantee almost anyone will be bored out of their minds by the end. Most should stay away, but then if you haven't heard of it before, then it's unlikely you'll ever come across it anyway given how obscure the subject matter is.It's also weird to see Scorsese in something like this. I've never seen him act in a film where he's in more than one scene, and though he's by no means stellar or anything, it's just interesting to see the man act instead of direct for a change.
(au) wrote: Although I only recently heard of this film it's actually well known. It's a documentary horror film based on the sightings of the Arkansas sasquatch known as the ??Fouke Monster??. It starts off as a documentary when it interviews real people who claim to have seen the monster on real locations.Then it becomes fictional when the hunt for the monster begins and the monster starts attacking people. But it keeps its documentary style throughout. As you can see by the tagline the movie claims to be real and it even has a notice at the opening credits stating that it's all real even though only the begging is the only real documentary part.The film became a huge hit with drive in cinemas, remains an American cult favourite to this day and has two sequels.There is lots of footage of the Boggy Creek swamp, forests and wildlife, a lot of which is put to folk music. You never get to see the monster clearly. It is always hidden behind vegetation or shadows appearing as a silhouette for most of the film. The most you ever see of it is its arm or some fur. But that's all right as it's probably better to keep the creature hidden so it can appear as mysterious rather than show how fake it is by putting it out in the open. It also reflects those blurry pieces of footage from alleged Bigfoot sightings which supports the documentary style of the film.When not showing you the local fauna and flora they interview and show the local people, some of which are actors and some of which aren't. I found it difficult to understand some of the people with their thick southern states accents at first but it wasn't to hard and I got used to it. Those were probably the real locals.The Legend of Boggy Creek is incredibly simply done film, but that's part of the attraction I guess. It of a super low budget and the monster is obviously a guy in an ape suite. You could probably make something like this yourself nowadays. The acting is bad which makes it all the more amusing, especially when the monster attacks and everyone starts to panic.So Boggy Creek was a fair bit of fun and it's interesting to see a famous drive in original from that era. But it is very dated and long winded at some parts. Just try not to take it too seriously and you have a good chance in enjoying this low budget classic.

(ca) wrote: It's a pretty hollow horror film. Jim Gillespie's horror entry has a chance to be a deep and fascinating look at the horrors of guilt and the psyche, but instead opts for another conventional slasher film. Gillespie is there to give fans a poor man's "Scream" and he pulls it off.
