(br) wrote: What was the point of this movie? Rhetorical quetion.

(it) wrote: While it's not as good as the play, this is a really good film adaptation of David Mamet's masterpiece. The dialogue is rich and complex, and the suspense will have you on the edge. William H. Macy delivers the best performance here, while Debra Eisenstadt does the best that she can. I found her performance to be a bit flat, but it gets stronger near the end. This is one of those two characters/one setting films, so for some, it may require patience. For everyone else, it's a treat. Directed by David Mamet.
(mx) wrote: One of the most beautiful romantic films I've seen.I consider this movie a classic, for what it means, for those who believe in true love.
(kr) wrote: Considering how impossible it is to convey the magnitude of the incompetence, arrogance and foolishness of the British leadership in the region at the time, the film portrays the situation well and examines the chaos of the battle itself. No, it isn't perfect but Zulu wasn't either. The tension, fear, panic and bravery of both sides are well portrayed and insofar as characterisation, it is a better film than the original. Well worth a watch and better than many may say.

(ag) wrote: A bit Hollywood. Some worthy emotions and passable acting, and an admirable lack of violence and extreme content. Nonetheless it was contrived and implausible.

(kr) wrote: Not a terribly exciting or intriguing romance drama for most of the movie, the film does get some traction 2/3rds of the way through. Has lots of Miami Vice qualities, not the least of which is the use of the band Tangerine Dream in the soundtrack to great effect. A local diner provides a common meeting ground for these two long time friends who's frienship is sorely tested over a common female relationship. As a matter of fact, this eighties film uses all the same locations, moodiness, colors, pacing, camerawork and noirish qualities of the TV show Miami Vice. While not a crime drama, this one is a romantic love triangle between two very good friends and a woman. A coming of age film but not with teens, but with mid-thirty something guys. There is really nothing really memorable, remarkable or gripping about this movie. It was Carol Waynes'(of Carson's Tonight Show fame) last film before she mysteriously died in Mexico. The plot is based somewhat on the real life artist Robert Blue. A struggling artist loses his long time girlfriend over money squabbles but does eventually become successful. His friendship is incredibly strained with a now love seeking businessman and childhood friend over a woman (Carol Laure) at the art gallery. She flirts with both causing predictable, terrible results. The word: Heartbreaker, the title, is used once by Carol Wayne in the film to describe the artist. This film is definately not to be confused with the later Heartbreakers with Gene Hackman made in 2001. Two totally different plots. Not really able recommend this, as it seems a bit rambling until the very end. See it yourself and decide. Soundtrack includes tunes from Pat Benetar, Itta James, Otis Redding, Tangerine Dream. It may take two viewings to fully appreciate. Directed by Bobby Roth Starring Peter Coyote Nick Mancuso Carol Laure (as the common love interest) Carol Wayne as Candy Music by Tangerine Dream (of TV's Miami Vice soundtrack)
