(us) wrote: Having a simple plot with stylish suspense, Buried feeds upon our curiosity, while bringing us to a twisty ending with a single super performance.
(kr) wrote: It's a nice movie with nice performance and ironically the ones that didn't get Oscar nominations stood out the most to me, Gordon Pinsent and Olympia Dukakis. Christie did a nice job too but I really loved the scenes between Dukakis and Pinsent.
(gb) wrote: Warren Beatty as gangster Bugsy Siegel and Annette Bening as his moll Virginia Hill have a sizzling chemistry and old-style Hollywood glamour that helps to overcompensate for the conventionality of this traditional gangster picture directed by Barry Levinson. James Tobak adapted Dean Jennings's book "We Only Kill Each Other," detailing Siegel's romantic pursuit of Hill, and his business dealings with mob associates, to build the Flamingo Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Beatty has great intensity in one of his best performances, but at times his intemperance feels overly vain and flamboyant. Bening is seductive and looks gorgeous. She has an easygoing repartee with Beatty that is fun, at first. Eventually, the relationship turns sour with the rest of the movie and our overall enjoyment fades. There are striking images by cinematographer Allen Daviau. Levinson has assembled a marvelous cast of supporting players: Ben Kingsley as Meyer Lanskey, Harvey Keitel as Mickey Cohen, Elliott Gould, Joe Mantegna, Bebe Neuwirth, and Bill Graham as "Lucky" Luciano. Produced by Levinson, Beatty, and Mark Johnson. Ennio Morricone contributed the forgettable score. Won Oscars for Best Art Direction and Costume Design.
(gb) wrote: I had the horrible misfortune of seeing this movie when I was a kid, and even to this day, I remember not only how much I hated it, but also how much it sucks. I was deluded into renting this movie one weekend because I had enjoyed Don Bluth's previous films, Land Before Time, All Dogs Go to Heaven, and the like. This movie is just awful, one of the lowest films I have ever seen. The kid is barely able to be understood, the songs are just awful, with particular marks for atrociousness from the frog body guard song. The story is... just a mess, it's not only incredibly hard to follow, it just doesn't make any sense even if you are following it, particularly the ending. Avoid this film, don't show it to your kids, don't even let anyone accidentally see a few minutes of it.

(us) wrote: The description from Showtime and the description here don't add up to what was in the movie.A look behind the scenes at a British Boys Boarding School where homosexuality and communism are frowned upon.Very, very young Rupert Everett, Colin Firth & Cary Elwes all do phenomenal acting jobs.Definitely thought provoking.

(kr) wrote: this is a very underrated film noir. robert wise's capable direction combined with 4 very strong performances (including my favorite noir actor robert ryan) make this a real hidden gem. there is a lot of racial tension and commentary, a relative rarity for 59 which really helps to drive the plot
