It's a great version for children. Michael Caine is just as good as you'd expect, which means he hands in one of the better performances of the role I've seen. It's genuinely funny and charming. What's missing is some of the intensity, drama, and yes, horror of the original version. It is a ghost story, and ghosts are supposed to be scary. Still worth your time.
Difficult to watch and worth the trouble. Highly recommended.
I loved it. It gives an inside view of the creation of one of Monk's finest albums, as well as profiles of other great artists and musicians who practiced their craft in this building. Wonderful stuff. The film doesn't sugar coat anything either. Had I been in NYC during this time, I would have gone to this place as often as I could.
Delevingne is an excellent actor if she can make me believe the horrible dialogue in this film. Using Aristotle, with 5 = best and 1 = worst: Plot 1, Character 2 (the secondary characters are interesting), Ideas = 1 (What indeed is this film trying to say?), Sound/Music = 3 (Average. I did notice the use of Staying Alive by the Bee Gees), Diction = 0 (This is the worst thing about this movie), Spectacle = 5. The film looks great. That's the most I can really say for it.
Beverly and I watched this over the weekend. Exceptional film with moments of genuine profundity. The acting and writing are top flight. Even more so given the low budget, which I did not notice until after the film was over. Engrossing. Don't miss this one.
