I just dont understand why people are so touchy feely when it comes to cosmetic surgeries, I come from a country where these are as usual as taking your wisdom tooth out. If you know you are weak, then just dont observe the surgery. Go straight to the bed and have the doctor knock you out and you will fix your problem and not feel a thing. Argh, enough with this hipocritical speech that "what matters is only personality". We all know thats not true.

Allen G (de) wrote: Certainly not Moore's best work- an important issue indeed but 'Sicko' doesn't really offer a lot of new insight. Still, it's funny and entertaining enough, and won't disappoint fans of Moore's other works.Moore has often been accused of twisting the facts but in this case he just seems to avoid trying to present any particularly controversial ones at all. Obviously, there is much to dislike about America's healthcare system (though much has also changed since this film's release) but 'Sicko' provides a fairly shallow look at the issues in question. For example, he interviews a bunch of Europeans so that Americans can hear from others how unlucky they are. You can't help but feel like that's a little lazy.Still, I find Moore entertaining and enjoy his stunts, some of which are on show here and this is certainly the kind of topic that one would expect Moore to make a film about. The film isn't as relevant as it once was (heck, certain elements of it were out of date by the time the film even came out) but this isn't one to watch to learn facts. it's really just an entertaining look at the, completely flabbergasting, disparities between different Nation's approaches to healthcare.

Eric B (it) wrote: Basically a German counterpart to "Sunset Boulevard," "Veronika Voss" is a portrait of a fading '50s film queen who's out of work, hooked on morphine but still carries herself like a superstar. Her drug problem comes courtesy of a wicked female physician who keeps her addicted, drains her fortune and keeps her emotionally and even physically imprisoned.The story's first half is a little sluggish, mostly establishing Voss's character and her doomed affair with a journalist who has been assigned to write her profile. The plot's real meat -- the clash between the concerned lover and the parasitic doctor -- doesn't truly catch fire until the last 40 minutes or so.The film's washed-out, high-contrast, black-and-white look masterfully simulates the ambience of old Hollywood publicity stills, but it's tiring for the eyes. It also distances us from the characters, who often just seem like additional fixtures of the decor. Another unusual directing choice is the conscious overuse of gimmicky dissolves between scenes -- the wild array of irises and wipes serves to continually point out the cinema's artificial world.I'm trying my best to be converted to the wonders of Fassbinder but, as yet, I haven't found one of his films which truly wows me.
Lyette G (ag) wrote: Prior to my first watching this film, I had seen a numerous amount of Laurel & Hardy's short films (silents and talkies), and assumed that I was in for some more of their famously outrageous antics. I was definitely not disappointed; in fact, the movie offers so much more! The primary element that makes this film so unique, compared to their classic slapstick humor, is that many of their routines challenge the limits of reality. There are many parts of this movie that seem just so ridiculous, even for Laurel & Hardy film (most notably, the running gag where Stan uses his thumb as a lighter), but in the end it all works out perfectly. The movie seems to be tied together by one iconic scene after another. The chase from inside of the villain's apartment articulates the perfect blending of humor and suspense, and is just so great. And I wouldn't dare to avoid mentioning the Oscar-nominated soundtrack, which goes hand-in-hand with some of the boys' most famous song and dance sequences. With all this kept in mind, Way Out West is a must-see for any fan of the comedic duo, or even for someone who's just looking for a good laugh. Believe me, with this movie, your wish shall be granted!
