(de) wrote: Tekkonkinkreet is an absorbing, gripping, beautiful, eerie, and multi-layered fantasy. Even after seeing it multiple times, it has never lost its luster to me. Even after seeing several superb films over the years, Tekkonkinkreet is not only one of the all-time greatest animated films I've ever seen, but it is also one of the all-time greatest films I've ever seen, period. This is a film that requires the viewer to pay attention to the story, and it may even require multiple viewings to fully appreciate the symbolism, but also even the little things so much more. It's a complex and multi-layered film that feels completely and utterly alive in every way - the story, the well-rounded characters you grow to care deeply about, the stunning animation, Treasure Town itself, every line of dialogue, and every expression. It's hard not to lose yourself in this fantasy film - that is, if you have any taste in films and are willing to pay attention to the story. It's an ambitious and startling film about human nature that delves deep into the souls of its characters to expose both their darkest and brightest aspects as human beings, resulting in an emotionally-gripping and fascinating storyline that never gets dull for a single second. It's a shame that this film has gone largely unnoticed and was also eclipsed by Happy Feet (An absolutely horrible, completely unimaginative, insultingly stupid, festering pile of shit - to put it kindly and mildly). If you enjoy not only great animated films with a lot of depth, but also enjoy films with a lot of depth, Tekkonkinreet is a must see for anyone who has taste in films and is willing to pay attention to storylines.

It is a zombie film with a cold war/atomic spin. The film is not brain dead! it's ATOMIC brain dead. Grab a bag of popcorn and watch it with the kids. I give it two ATOMIC THUMBS UP!--JAV
(mx) wrote: Considered to be one of the greatest western films of all time, Shane was a film that I could not miss in plight of the best western movies.The western film is one which traditionally moves at a slow pace. Unlike a lot of western films, Shane manages to give itself a strong atmosphere during a lot of the scenes which feature minimal excitement and focus more on the simple character drama of the story. It does that by having a screenplay that constantly gets to the point and a musical score which gives the film a sense of spirit as it develops. It makes things feel as if they move along quicker and therefore makes the experience a stronger one that is more atmospheric than the average western film. It still moves along at a fairly slow pace, but there is rarely ever a feeling of blankness in the atmosphere. While the pacing of the film moves along slowly and goes into a fairly significant decrease within the second half of the film, the atmosphere of the film and the spirit remains constantly present a sense of life to the story which assists it in allowing the emotions of the tale to develop. Shane is one of those western films which is a lot less about the fight and more about the politics and the way that society generally is, and it manages to use a passionate atmosphere to illuminate the drama in the tale. Shane strongly benefits from having George Stevens as director because he makes Shane a genuinely strong drama while incorporating the western elements in from its script without problem. As well as that, George Steven makes the film genuinely good from a technical perspective by capturing a lot of nice scenery with Academy Award winning cinematography. Everything is packed with strong production design and convincing costumes as well. Everything looks good and is edited timely, and it is enhanced by the strength of a powerful musical score which renders it a strong visual and technical experience. Although Shane is a dated film, it balances quality storytelling with being a grand spectacle and stays consistently well scripted. The shootout scenes are also very entertaining because they are choreographed well and capitalise on a lot of strong technical elements including powerful sound effects which leave a striking effect.It isn't too hard to see why Shane is considered a classic. As a western film, it touches deeply on its concepts within the script and cleverly examines the western setting and the paradox about how if one wants peace, they must prepare for war. It has some complex underlying themes to it even if they are always not 100% clear to viewers or to people who are indifferent to the western genre, for fans of western cinema Shane is a strong example of the genre in its heyday, and it pays a lot of credibility to George Stevens as a film director.But one of the most touching elements of Shane ends up being its characters and the strong efforts that the cast pour into the film.One of the primary reasons that Shane is so good is because of who its protagonist is. Instead of being such a dominant tough guy quick to show off how tough he is, he is a more lax and laid back hero. He has the skills, but he uses his brains before his brawn. One of the concepts in the story is that the west has such a harsh setting that it always drags the reluctant back into battle because crime is so prevalent, and Shane is a great example of the archetype in this situation. He refuses to get back into gunfights and will go to every extent in an attempt to avoid violence. Shane is a good man dragged into a war that he wants nothing to do with, and so he represents a very likable and heroic protagonist for the story, and with Alan Ladd in the role, it ends up getting the profile easily. Alan Ladd is spot on in Shane because of how he maintains the right amount of heroism in the part while also really touching upon his humane qualities which makes him more than just an archetype. As a cowboy, he maintains the appropriate level of stoicism while also being able to grip his weapon with confidence and putting up a hell of a fight during a bar brawl scene. But more importantly he constantly remains compelling and maintains plenty of strong line delivery and physical involvement in the story. He is perfectly heroic in the part and so his performance is unforgettable, rendering him one of the more memorable cowboys in film history.Jean Arthur tuns in a very strong performance in Shane because she is sympathetic and constantly maintains the right level of emotional intensity to carry the material. She shares a tense chemistry with both Alan Ladd and Brandon deWilde. She projects the intense emotional strain of being a woman stuck in a society full of violence which she objects to at every extent which means that the audience is really able to feel something for her, and the implied romance hiddden beneath her chemistry with Alan Ladd makes the story more touching a complicated. Jean Arthur is terrific in Shane.Brandon deWilde is fairly good in Shane. While at times he can get somewhat annoying mainly because of his overexcited nature as a child, he really strongly conveys the idea of being a troubled child in the west. He puts himself into a fairly complex and mature role, but he handles it well with his natural juvenile charm and instinctive handling of the rough edged material. He interacts with Alan Ladd very well, and so it is easy to make audiences feel the extent of his charm. Brandon deWilde is a good casting decision in Shane.Jack Palance doesn't precisely get as much screen time as I had hoped, but he makes a hell of an impact during his small role because he fearlessly steps into his part with the ideal level of aggression and insane dedication to the part. He serves as a western figure easily and creates some memorable scenes, so his role in the film is pivotal.So while Shane is a somewhat dated and slow western film, it is still an absolute classic with a lot of complex themes and a skillful leading performance from Alan Ladd.
(fr) wrote: An extremely sad film which serves as a historical relic of the Great Depression. An elderly couple is forced to part because of the bank foreclosing on their home. They turn to their children to help but the children don't have the means to house both of them. They decide to enjoy one final outing together. Some of the film is slow moving but ultimately, this is a very touching film.
