(de) wrote: Great low budget horror. West tells the story at a deliberate pace, while still maintaining the fun, thrills and a certain air of mystery. With this and Trigger Man it seems West is going in the completely opposite direction of modern horror films, and that is not to make everything so fast paced and hyper kinetic that the audience never has a chance to connect with the characters and situation. In both those films I found the atmosphere to be quite absorbing, with his long takes where not much happens. Granted, I'm sure that has a lot to do with the low budget, but as I've always believed, low budgets bring out the best in most filmmakers and to the most creative directors it becomes a strength.Now I'm really looking forward to West's House of the Devil, which I hope gets a theatrical release.

(ru) wrote: Fabulous cast and script by Terrance Malick. A great laid bad story, the kind you don't see Hollywood making anymore. One of my favorites.
(es) wrote: Fellini misses the mark in his strange tale from Ancient Rome. The images are vulgar without much in the way of redeeming aspects.
(br) wrote: Making sweet Greta Gerwig cry is as close to unforgivable as wrongdoings come, yet Stiller's performance lends just enough gradation to the titular asshole that said asshole is somehow more pitiable than unlikeable. And Baumbach's script is above-average, if a bit lackadaisical.
