The film delves into the art scene of London, and while interesting at times and certainly with a good pedigree on the subject since it had some knowledgable people to take input from ,I think it could have submerged itself further on the subject at hand, the one bright spot in this film, and the reason why my grade for it will be better than it should really be, is the cast, which is seriously awesome, just take a look at all the names above, but still, the cast is given a weak script, the camerawork is extremely subpar and it generally doesn't feel like the sort of movie it was clearly intended to be. Now, even though I give praise to the actors in the cast, there are two things to mention, the direction the cast was given was clearly not great, and secondly and more importantly, even though they're all good actors, they're not that good as to make an Altman-esque film, which is the vibe this film shamelessly tried to pull off with a huge ensemble and a full-on exploration of a specific world or genre. Not to mention that Duncan Ward, the film's director, is a first-time feature film director, and he's certainly no Robert Altman, and when he's five feature-length films into his career I doubt he'll have a MASH like Altman did. But then again pretty much nobody can do what Altman did, so let's not bully him, let's just say he should've known better. I won't really go ahead and describe the whole plot, I saw the film more than two months ago and I probably forgot most of it anyway, but I'll say that Amanda Seyfried is actually pretty good in it, even though I say that in pretty much anything she's in, and Gillian Anderson is an actress I'll watch in anything, and think she has become quite the charming actress post-X-Files. But again, for the pleasure I got from the castmembers I'll give this film a rather okay grade, but unfortunately this film, while it does have its moments of nasty fun amidst it's completely off'-target over -the-top demeanor, is one I'll forget all about in a couple of months, just like I forgot the majority of its plot two months after watching it. Grade: B-

Sehena F (br) wrote: The Wicked is an excellent way to waste a few hours if you don't have a painted wall that you would rather watch dry. Although I do like the idea of an urban legend coming true and the fact that it involves a witch, I have to admit that that is all I honestly like about the movie. The story line, what existed of one anyway, was somewhat bland. It reminded of something that a child in elementary would write. I will give them two stars for effort.

It makes you think twice about desiring to live the rock and roll life style. But the music is great and find myself singing the songs at odd moments of the day.

Morgan R (fr) wrote: I have never really been impressed with Eastwood's body of work. His contemporary dramatical efforts plays to unstated prejudices and fears ala "Dirty Harry" and most recently "Grand Torino" or melodramatic emotionalism and his western works are formula pieces with no imagination. His best efforts are comedic, because he plays them seriously. I liked him in "Paint Your Wagon" and he would have been very good in "Bronco Billy", which he directed, if the script by Dennis Hackin, hadn't been so thin. With the exception of Sondra Locke the casting was composed of some accomplished character actors (i.e. Scatman Crothers, Geoffrey Lewis, etc.). I don't think a good script would have improved Locke's performance, but it would have gone far in making a more entertaining film.

Yet possibly the greatest is the directional work of Norman Jewison who combined all these into making Fiddler on the Roof an incredible visual and auditory experience which captures the spirit of the original play, the educational culture of its story and the powerful entertainment value that it holds. His direction is just utterly some of his true best and he exercises a true understanding of importance within Jewish culture as the director of Fiddler on the Roof.The storyYou can tell that the Fiddler on the Roof script clearly doesn't deviate far from its theatrical roots because it clearly has many of the charming anecdotes written for a stage production and all of the clever and charming jokes and friendly characters that would have made the original play so widely successful. It's so charmingly written and so cleverly humourous in such a quirky way, and the characters are all interesting which makes it easy to connect to them and hope for their best. And all this combined makes it a powerful experience in entertainment because when a viewer genuinely cares for the characters it makes it a stronger and more beneficial experience to them, as was the case with me watching Fiddler in the Roof.And the story is a fascinating one. Like I said, it explores the complicated culture of the time of 1905 and the context of a Jewish community living within Tsarist Russia, and the trouble that comes with it. The tale starts so spirited and energetic which fills audiences with glee and life so that they feel what it is to be a Fiddler on the Roof, and it later is struck down by the drama of the film so the depressing atmosphere of the story is reflected in the depressing feeling the viewer gets as he or she experiences the sadness of what it is to be a poor Jewish person in Tsarist Russia. So Fiddler on the Roof is both happy and joyful while also sad and depressing, and it's an emotional roller coaster. And definitely a good one, because a musical that can touch you like Fiddler on the Roof and make you feel as much as it did is worth watching and learning from. It explores what it is to have optimism and suddenly be faced with shocking nihilism, so it's a powerhouse dramatic film. Yet even as it does this it exits on a high note, a beautiful one which may have viewers smiling like it did for me. Really, the story in Fiddler on the Roof is one deserving of immense praise for its themes and development.The production design in Fiddler on the Roof is greatly convincing since the town of Anatevka and the people within it feel genuine, and of course the costumes make them feel more humane as characters which makes them easier to connect to. All the sights in Fiddler on the Roof are beautiful so it's a strongly appealing visual experience. The cinematography is excellent too, and the film is edited in perfect timing for the musical scenes especially so that it's basically a magical musical.And the musical score in Fiddler on the Roof is absolutely hypnotic. Its beautifully written, composed with skill and sung with the voice of true magicians of theatrics. It's incredibly beautiful, and the voice talents of its cast are just perfect. But their acting talents managed to match that.Chaim Topol has the vocal talent of a an old wise man whose voice itself had grown a beard. His Israeli accent and low tone of voice is so energetic and charming that it sucks the viewer into loving Tevye the Milkman in every situation. See, Chaim Topol has an unmatchable theatrical energy in him and such a friendly smile which made him shine as he danced during his solo performance of "If I Was a Rich Man". His performance is some of the most spirited and strongly dramatic in musical cinema history, and Chaim Topol proves that he was born to play Tevye in an deservingly Academy Award nominated performance. Leonard Frey also managed to make a memorable supporting role since he had a real passion in him which showed off in his chemistry with Chaim Topol and Rosalind Harris, and he really has a sense of love in him for Tzeitel which makes it a thoroughly combining emotional performance which ensures that the love in the story is just refreshing. He is a memorable face from Fiddler on the Roof.Rosalind Harris was also terrific because she captured the innocent spirit of Tzeitel very well and sung majestically which made her an appealing presence to the eyes and the ears.Norma Crane was also a powerful addition to the cast, as was Paul Mann.Michael Glaser was also great.Really, the entire cast was strong and energetic without one actor ever slipping up.So although the latter part of the film is less energetic and a little slower than the former, Fiddler on the Roof is an exceptional film adaptation of a classical play which educates and entertains while it mesmerises viewers with its
