Liam P (br) wrote: When does the 'story' within this film begin or end? It doesn't. When do these characters start performing, start revealing themselves? They don't (at least not on the surface). What actually happens in this film? Not much. However it doesn't matter, that is exactly the sort of questions you should be asking yourself when watching this film. When the 'opening' credits role half way through the film, what started as a very slow look at people literally just going about their everyday life shifts dramatically in tone, not in its construction (it's still slow moving) but in the way you look at what Weerasethakul is trying to show you. He is trying to break all your expectation of what a film should be, should show us and creates something truly wonderful. The last 40 minutes in particular have an atmosphere quite unlike any film I've seen before. This is daring the thrilling cinema.

David H (jp) wrote: This was an exceptional film. Robert Downey Jr. has Chaplin down to the very finest detail. I thought for 1993 it would have easily won one of the Academy Awards it was nominated for. It moved rather fast in some spots but most people didn't know a lot of Chapin's life in general and there is quite a lot that went on! Loved the film.

Josh M (ru) wrote: Max Ophuls' The 'Earrings of Madame de...' is a visually stunning, sparkling melodrama for adults. There is so much subtext in the script (most of what the characters say is not what they mean) that it requires an film goer with a fully engaged mind to appreciate the film. I think it is the subtlety and restraint that have kept this film off most 'best films of all time' lists, which tend to favor bigger emotions and more sweeping visual epics. The unlikely plot sounds pretty contrived, and it is. The premise is that the fate of a peripatetic, inanimate object (earrings in this case) owned by the spoiled trophy wife is the catalyst for life changing epiphanies. I recently saw a very different classic, Winchester 73 with James Stewart where the object was a rifle. The plot is contrived, but the characters aren't, they are fully recognizable humans. The plot is just the Macguffin to get there. As the earrings pass from hand to hand, new layers of character and information are revealed about the nature of the relationships of the members of this love triangle, Charles Boyer (the cuckolded French General), Danielle Darrieux (the spoiled trophy wife), and her lover, to whom she doesn't get to actually make love, Vittorio De Sica (the Italian diplomat and Darrieux' lover). The performances are flawless, and despite the low key nature of the style, somewhere at the 45 minute mark we care about these people and are glued to find out how it all turns out. Despite the light tone, the film is ultimately a tragedy.I can't let my little review end without mentioning the sumptuous photography and the best use of moving dolly shots that I have ever seen in a film. The camera follows character as they move from room to room and from object to object. It's not as attention grabbing as the big restaurant single shot scene in Scorsese's "Good Fellas", but the shots are so well executed, we barely notice them except to be fully involved and empathized with the characters. If you like Renoir's 'Rules of the Game' or Bergman's 'Smiles of a Summer Night' you must see this film. Or if you're just starting to get into black and white mid-twentieth century European films about adultery among the gentry, this film is a good place to start.

Daniel Y (ag) wrote: Tim Burton, in my opinion, is one of those select few filmmakers that can have style over substance and still have the movie be good, or at least watchable. Thta being said, I don't think that you'd call this film particularly good but it's just so beautiful and entertaining that you can't help but like it for what it is, even with it's obvious flaws.

Zachary B (nl) wrote: Funny comedy. Terrible movie.

Micayla D (jp) wrote: Cute movie. You don't have to have watched the show in order to see the movie. Uplifting film.

Dave J (ag) wrote: Friday, November 5, 2010 (1960)Seven Thieves ADVENTURE/ COMEDY/ DRAMA Another one of those carefully planned casino heists films with an amazing cast such as Edward G. Robinson, Rod Steiger, Joan Collins and Eli Wallach. The movie was wel made until the forced 'do the right thing' ending because producers don't want to condone robberies despite how chrismatic and likable the robbers are! If their is any reason to watch this, it is for the heist and the comrade itself, nothing else! 2.5 out of 4

This is definitely the film of another era, another generation and another time when the dude could ride his bike, get the girl and sing his feelings with all his heart and guts still looking like a hero and a total badass. I doubt by today's standards the film film would get the same fame but rediscovering it is like jumping back in time when eyeliner ruled and hair cuts were the coolest ever. The storyline is pretty simple and straight forward but manages to be entertaining, thanks to numerous musical numbers and Prince holding it all on his tiny shoulders, proving that he was a giant in his art and a master of the scene. The acting was actually quite good and overall the film was very well shot, lit and scored. It's a beautiful love letter to music, art and love, all recurrent themes throughout Prince's eclectic and vast career. Purple Rain is a cult object, a film that defy time and reality to offer a unique introspective inside the world of a genius who at 24 years old was literately ruling the world of music and pop art scene. The crowd was cheering and applauding making the experience even more enjoyable and amazing. Purple Rain will remain one of my best time at the movies and a great source of inspiration for generations to come.
