Eye In The Sky

An excellent film about a military moral dilemma. Tense and cerebral, will it do well at the box office? I don't know if many in the US will even believe a dilemma exists - they see the "bad guy" killed daily on tv, in the movies, in games, and the fact of collateral damage is minimized. I hope this does well. We need more films like this in our world.

I pledge to never buy an item of clothing again without thinking about the human hands that made that product. I am one of those who have lived too much of a materialistic society. No more. We cannot see success only defined by dollar signs. We must change our economic model to consider the health, welfare, and future of all those impacted before we identify a corporation as a success. This is one of the most important films I have seen.

Love Colin Firth and this was an amazing film. But, knocked a bit off because the violence caused me to turn my head a few times.

A very strange film. Still processing it several days later, but have determined I liked it. I cannot agree to calling this a comedy, nor is it a drama. I would label it as avant garde - Felini-esque. It is intriguing and I found myself able to follow the storyline, but all of a sudden something strange would occur. And, all of the characters are quite odd. This is not a straightforward film and at times I was not sure if the play within the play was being followed or if the characters were going off on their own tangents. Definitely not for everyone, but if you are a film buff, you will definitely want to see this unusual film.

The Imitation Game

One of the, if not the, best movies this year. If your thoughts run not just to entertaining films, but to film as an art form, this one has it all. First, the story is fascinating. A piece of history that was hidden for over 50 years, you will learn about something you did not read about in history classes. Secondly, the script is tremendously smart and well done. It tells the story well. The acting is superb. Benedict Cumberbatch is truly amazing. Alan Turning is an amazingly strange genius with little to no social skills and, it turns outs, is also gay and lost his first love while in prep school. All of the supporting characters are amazing. Everyone has secrets to keep, which we discover as the story plays out. The editing is wonderful - not a dull moment in the film. The score fits the film beautifully, and the film is lovely to watch. I found myself completely intrigued, feel great sympathy for the main character of Turning. But, I also found myself slowly being drawn in by the other characters as well. I can strongly recommend this story to both men and women. The puzzle needing to be solved and the personal intrigues will keep any thinking person absorbed throughout.
