I'm not really sure how he does it, but I always get a little uncomfortable when I watch a Mike Leigh movie. Life just never gives his characters a break.
It's been a while since I've seen this one, but it didn't really stick. It was OK though.
4 stars in it's genre; I just enjoyed the hell out of this one. A nice movie for a Saturday evening, you won't be disappointed. And you can bring your girlfriend too.
Been looking forward to watching this. The storyline was a little thin, but I liked the atmosphere.
The story enfolds piece by piece and stays captivating. If you liked A Separation, you'll like this one as well.
A visually attractive movie about a Kurdish-Iranian poet who is released from prison after 30 years. Everybody believes he's dead, so there is nobody waiting for him. He goes in search of the woman he was married to when he was arrested and contemplates making contact with her. With the use of flashbacks his and their history is revealed layer by layer, which weighs down on his decision to reveal himself.
It reminded me a little of the movie Incendies, although I think that movie is better than this one. After seeing a couple of middle-eastern movies, I have to say it's refreshing to see things from a different standpoint.
A light comical portrait of a family that's bewildered by the visit of a foreign exchange student from Germany. Somehow this handsome and positive young man confronts them with their shortcomings, hopes and dreams.
A beautiful film about a young woman in a country torn by war, caring for her paralyzed husband, who was wounded in battle. When praying fails to revive him, she resorts to telling him all her secrets.
It's almost a long monologue, but the pace, Golshifteh Farahani's beautiful face and the insight in a conservative culture make it an intriguing movie.
A powerful Saudi feel good movie about a conservative culture in motion. Definitely my favorite movie at the mini-version of the Rotterdam Film Festival in my country.
I don't want to ruin it by telling what it's about.
I'll conclude by saying that it's the first feature film made in Saudi Arabia directed by the first female Saudi filmmaker.
Adrien Brody doesn't really do it for me. That tormented look, which suited this movie perfectly, gets old after a while. And Lucy Liu? What a bore.. Her outburst in the movie is laughable, she should stick to bad ass Asian bitches. Marcia Gay on the other hand never fails to make an impression.
About the movie? I'm not really sure what the message is here. That life sucks and even the smallest effort to reach out to each other will bite you in the ass? Nice.
Not my cup of tea, classic-movie wise.
Really weird. I'm still not sure if I liked or not, but it was interesting enough. Christina Ricci doesn't really do it for me. But Samuel is his usual cranky self but he sure can sing! He's pretty good if you ask me. Justin Timberlake should stick to singing instead of acting, he's not convincing enough when you hear that whiny little voice in the back of you're head every time his face shows (I won't admit that I secretly liked his debut-solo album).
Did not leave an impression whatsoever. Ernst Umhauer's character annoyed the crap out of me. I saw it in the theater a couple of weeks ago, but I can't and don't care to remember what it was about.
If you're expecting to see a movie about love, you're mistaken. It was long, cold and hard to watch. It's a movie about the dark and destructive side of an illness, where the bond between two people is tested. I craved for some tenderness and was so dense after all the depressing stuff that I couldn't even cry at the end. I'm still not sure if I should give it 3,5 or 4 stars, but because it's a little unconventional I'll stick to 4.
I saw this one in the theater and it definitely increased the movie experience. Dark is really dark and the shock-effects come across better (I wish you could drop the rest of the visitors through a trapdoor; nervous people become chatty).
Too bad the story was lame and there was no chemistry whatsoever between Ethan Hawke and Juliet Rylance, who plays his wife. I usually like Hawke as a supporting actor, he just didn't really pull it off as a leading daddy. The child-actors in make-up at the end ruined the whole movie for me; anti-climax. And nobody likes those...
Gordon-Levitt is officially awesome. Willis stands in his shadow here. Looper is not an instant classic but is entertaining enough. Time-travel stuff usually messes with your brain a little, but this movie doesn't need all your braincells to enjoy it. It could've used a little bit more action in my opinion.
A dutch classic in my opinion. Theo is brilliant as Johan.
Any of you read my review on The Tenant? This movie delivered what that movie didn't. I like it when a movie doesn't show you everything and surprises you.
The women of Almodovar! Mesmerising.. All the ingredients of a typical Almodovar are present. Those who've seen some of his movies will know what I mean.
