Joanna B (fr) wrote: Has the newspaper industry reached its peak? Is print in ashes? Will the great Grey lady called the New York Times cease to exist, and if so what does that mean?As newspapers smack head on into the wall of its most tumultuous time in history, filmmaker Andrew Rossi gains unprecedented access to newsroom of the iconic New York Times to document either its demise or survival. For approximately 12 months through 2009/10 Rossi shadows journalists on the newly created Media Desk, a department started to tract the transformation of the media landscape and map how new digital advances are going to shape the future of the industry. A future where stop press may have an entirely new and dire meaning.Using the desk as a prism, a complex outline highlight both the perils and opportunities of this quickly evolving beast and its relationship to the Times itself emerges. Rossi and camera head into the still 'mostly' functioning media giant to observe the Media Desk its editor Mark Headlam and his senior reporters David Carr and Brian Stelter.Under the shock of a number of major US paid dailies falling victim to plummeting ad revenues and the explosion of free online news and information sources, the New York Times too many observers, is a sitting duck, waiting for its turn on the chopping block. But is it really facing dire economic prospects, or is there life in the old girl yet?According to Reporter David Carr yes she does. An interesting course-voiced, weather-beaten and frank character is a passionate representative of the Times and its traditions. A staunch defender of old fashioned in-depth interviewing, cross referencing, and carful facts driven writing, the recovered exjunkie's attack approach to scrupulous reporting makes him the hottest poster boy to print journalism since Woodward and Berstein.However, as Editor Headlam points out things are not so clear cut. Hard facts are falling by the wayside as boundary breaking internet sites such as Wiki-leaks try to "get it out there" and ordinary citizens with a handy-cam can upload raw information to YouTube instantaneously without censorship, filters or liability but with a disconcerting slant or agenda. In an interview captured between Stelter and WikiLeaks creator Julian Assange, it is clear the line between journalism and activist is blurred. Assange states that he would pursue justice over accurate journalism in a thought provoking self-image. This illuminating brief exchange sheds light on the broader debate about the kinds of materials published through filtered media organisations like the Times and independantly controlled websites and how they can work together. Carl Bernstein (a Watergate reporter) once said "We need institutions that have the ability both financially and culturally to bring news that other institutions and individuals cannot" but as reporter Bill Keller states "Ellsberg needed us. Wikileaks doesn't".Is the prestigious institution of the times competing new world vs. old world or reliable news vs. amateur propaganda, the first underlying theme to the entire documentary. The second being profitability. The writing blood already on the wall following the firing of over 10% of its workforce, and with readers moving away from the smudgy papers to battery-powered smart things, how does a newspaper evolve to retain its readership and financial feasibility?Wonderfully capturing the iPad's release and Carr's simple reaction "You know what this reminds me of? A newspaper." it becomes evident why the online versions of the paper will now be charging. Their evolution may see the end of print but it won't see the end of them.The Verdict: Unglorified and Insightful whilst sidestepping offering any real answers, Page One is a real page turner focused on media's most vital and indispensable hell-raisers.Published: The Canberra ChronicleDate of Publication: 10/01/2011

Trevor W (br) wrote: An entertaining movie about what happens when a cat's double life intersects in the crime-stricken streets of Paris. The only things holding this film back are its clich goofy minions and dialogue.

Dean K (nl) wrote: A fairly decent street dance film, although the formula is overly used in cinema. Surprised to see one section was filmed at my local shopping mall! Might have been better in 3D.

Paul F (ru) wrote: While it has its moments, this movie is ultimately an unfunny effort from an Adam Sandler who is simply trying to make some extra pocket cash.

Brian P (us) wrote: Good but a little slow

Esa E (mx) wrote: Lacks pretty much everything there is to lack in an action movie. So boring and bland. Not even Mr. Seagal saves the day. Just not enough awesomeness...

Joe E (ca) wrote: its confusing probably because of the translations ... but it was a good flick

Maymay A (es) wrote: Re-watched.Million Dollar Baby is a powerful and deeply moving tale about dreams, redemption, family, and the strength of the human spirit to endure and to prevail. Truly unforgettable.

Keith M (ru) wrote: The perfect movie for when you want to trump out and not think too much.

Caitlin L (de) wrote: A little creepy at times. Loved the twists and turns.

Greg M (gb) wrote: I believe I saw this on PBS in '84 shortly after it was made, and was left speechless. With its semi-documentary approach, the movie creates tension, fear, bleakness, and sorrow in a way that makes contemporary American films like The Day After and Testament seem like Sesame Street productions. Because it doesn't rely heavily on special effects or a soundtrack to cue you how to feel, it stands the test of time. By far the most powerful movie made about nuclear war, yet sadly probably the least known.

Nick H (it) wrote: The aggravatingly awkward and angsty first half are not so easily forgotten as we roll into the (somewhat) exciting second half. These millionaires live on a hill in L.A. without cell service? Oh by the way there is no cell service. You can't make calls in the house. There is no service. There's no cellular service. No service. Who does coke at a dinner party...BEFORE DINNER!?This director must view MST3K films with the same adoration a junior high schooler has for Lebron and Curry.

Christopher S (jp) wrote: Ann-Margret's over the top energy and John Forsythe's stodgy befuddlement play an excellent counterpoint in this extraordinary campy pulp drama. For all its B-movie bravado, this is really some sharp filmmaking from writer-director Douglas Heyes, with some expertly-crafted suspense, great moody black and white photography by Joseph Biroc, and a simmering jazz score (some of it lifted from Henry Mancini's score for 'Touch of Evil'). A strange, sexy cult masterpiece.

Vivian G (de) wrote: A good funny comedy and all around good movie with a great cast.

Steve B (es) wrote: A movie that makes you think and allows your thoughts for a second to be put in the same place as Harrelson's character. Could you live with the idea that your loving partner who is soley yours was with someone else for a night? Despite the amount of money, is it something that a couple could do? The movie does have a loving core to it, starting out with photos, the loving looks and smiles they both give and 'the early days of the two.' Tears and fights follow and eventually a split once the night has been done with and forgotten about. Towards the end scenes the two drop to basics and remember as well as dig deep to the love they both really do still feel. An original idea and nicely slipped into as an overwhelming proposal as the couple are pretty much dead broke within the story. I just hope I don't have to make my mind up in that scenario!
