Funny, honest and extremely spirited, The Breakfast Club is a teen classic in terms of both its entertainment factor and the respect in which it treats its adolescent protagonists.
I know that this film has passionate fans, but now I've seen it, I cannot claim to be one of them. I desperately wanted to love this film but, whilst I admire its ambition and visual flair, it left me more frustrated than enamoured.
Maybe I'm just being stupid, maybe I don't "get it"; I just found that Malick's creation buckled under the weight of its own ambition and poetry, maintaining its visual beauty throughout but losing its grip on any kind of human beauty, the kind of beauty which warms you, which inspires you, which scares you, which moves you. Without that, it felt very, very empty. Sorry, Malick fans.
Affecting and thought-provoking stuff with a magnificent performance from Marion Cotillard.
Spirited and full of fun, Pretty Woman coasts on the charm of its hugely likeable stars and witty script, even if it winds up descending into cliché in the final 10 minutes.
Layered with magnetism to spare and a cool, wry screenplay, To Have And Have Not shines bright thanks to its talented leading players, but even Humphrey Bogart cannot match up to Lauren Bacall here, who sizzles with a sly wit and burns with a passion and a charisma you wouldn't find anywhere else.
