To say this movie is a masterpiece of film making would almost not do it enough justice. I can say I loved this movie growing up, not exactly understanding its message and over all philosophy, but I enjoyed all the same, but now it really speaks to me and I see on a totally different level. This has probably two of the greatest performances seen in any movie of any genre. Paul Neman and Robert Redford prove that while they can be whole hearted and charming they can also pull every string of every emotion. The piece of artwork created here made it a classic in its day, but will also stand the test of time as one of the greatest movies ever made.
"Inside Daisy Clover" is the earliest movie I've seen that features an actress play on the same field as any of the top actors of the time. Natalie Wood never really got the credit she deserved as an actress, and this was the reason she became the legend she's remembered as. The supporting cast is amazing with Christopher Plummer as the very creepy studio executive and Robert Redford as a closeted Bi-Sexual actor, which seemed incredibly revolutionary for the time it was made. It's kind of the female version "Rebel without a Cause" mixed in with a demented Sherry Temple story.
"Tetro" is unlike any of Francis Ford Coppola's other movies because it comes for a very personal place. Even if this sometimes comes off as pretentious, we are however dealing with very real people who aren't always going to say and do what we would. Vincent Gallo gives a near perfect performance and shows that he is a truly amazing actor when given the right script and character. Its greatest accomplishment is creating the setting of 1950's Italy in 2008 Buenos Aires. Whether it was intended or not this is the greatest effort in making a nostalgia Neo-Realism movie, because at some times it feels like its 40 or 50 years old. You can tell that this was a very personal project for Coppola, and its simplistic nature proves that you don't need the deep pockets of Hollywood to make an exceptionally good movie.
Leave it to the army of moronic critics and reviewers to brand this as a failed Bourne movie and unjustly compare it to completely different movies and characters. "Green Zone" might be a work of fiction, but it uses real situations and emotions as the pull and weight of the movie. Contrary to popular belief Matt Damon is not Jason Bourne and can play a different character in an action/adventure scenario, and he does it flawlessly. This is the type of movie I love because it has the intrigue and story of a spy movie, but the fast pace and stylization of an action movie. "Green Zone" does question the motivations and justification of the Iraq war, but it also honors the dedication of the common soldier to fight what is unjust in the world.
