"Two Lives" made me think how historical events (and in this case a true story) can change people's lives forever. It's another great European family drama/thriller with the fantastic Liv Ullmann (from most of Ingmar Bergman movies). and a story that will haunt you for a long time and that redefine the meaning of a "lie".
It could be a great movie but the under Turturro's heavy hand it misses the mark. It's only a comedy when Woody Allen is on the screen making fun of his own people, but it's not a Woody Allen movie, so it's just funny without the genius side of it. Stone, Vergara, Schreiber... a lot of talent wasted on a mediocre script. Overall, a fading filmmaker lost in his own lack of originality.
This is an absurd story of Biblical proportions. Lord of the Rings meets The Shining that meets Shakespeare that meets 2012 that meets every bad movie you ever saw. Who could had thought that this stupid fairy tale could be a major movie? On the bright side the soundtrack is beautiful and Emma Watson is an amazing actress.
I went to see this movie with very low expectations. Another teen movie based on a trilogy... Well, it was a great surprise to enjoy this storyline and characters much better than "Hunger Games". This is a multilayer story with a social consciousness wrapped up with non stop action, great acting and special effects. Don't miss this one and "face your fears"!
Another great example of an unintended thriller... a movie that shows the way people live at the Jewish occupied territories in Palestine. Like last year's "Out in The Dark", "Omar" is a low budget, but extremely realistic story about a group of friends torn apart by the hatred against their common enemy. The final scene will leave you breathless. A great movie.
