The most expensive movie the studio made that year, but it doesn't work overall. A romance set against a backdrop of international turmoil, ala Casablanca, but not nearly as good. Obvious overdubbing to tell the story is needed, but falls short of intersting drama. Melodramatic, although beautiful Ava Gardner holds interest, but not enough. Train wreck scene is fantastic, and the Ghandi cameo is shocking. Should be redone now, good story, bad translation.
I know I am a bit behind, but finally caught this film yesterday. Impressive debut (although one could argue the debut was the original short) Imagine being able to stop time...what would you do? Insomniac/art student BEN has this dilemma. I like the fact that his insomnia is post-relationship driven, and ends as he discovers a new love. I think anybody who has been CRUSHED can relate to "time standing still" Perhaps a bit heavy-handed on the director's end, but to his credit, the scenes filmed in "still-life" are wonderful images on their own, and remind you that an artist does see the world differently. I found the verbal acknowledgment of that image to be disruptive, however. You don't have to hit me over the head with it, Mr. Ellis! Worth a watch, for sure!
Wow....with several well-worn cinema scare devices at play here, and a nod to the "Blair Witch Project", this film scared the hell out of me! The dark, the disease, the knowledge that you have been left alone...better yet, left to die...these ALL blend to create a unique horror experience. Jennifer Carpenters performance is very good...very believable. While admittedly I was becoming annoyed with the constant turmoil in the picture, and the camera work overall, I realize that may well have been the intent of the director. Do not show this to your children, do not watch this just before bed. If you enjoy horror films, I would not miss this one.
GREAT FAMILY FILM! An oldie but a goodie.....This film is perfect for the whole family. Russ Tamblyn (relation to Amber?) is as good a dancer as it gets, although not the most believable playing this little boy in the world. Terry Thomas and Peter Sellers steal this film (but you would expect that!) as cartoon-like villains, coercing young Tom into theivery on their behalf. The mayhem to follow is funny, exciting and memorable. I don't have children, but was able to remember being one myself watching this very enjoyable film
3 1/2 stars worth for me. Tony Randall does an admirable job, considering the time, with the multitude of characters he portrays. The movie is a fun ride! Some of the humor is dated, of course, but the film still holds up as a vehicle of human introspection, allowing the viewer to glance into the mirror for themselves. Once the big-top goes up, the fun really begins. A good film....(Oscar winner for special effects, too!)
