Kingdom of Heaven
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Epic stunning images, striking beautiful images, powerfully photography, epic - the costumes, the desert, the era.. yes! - we love this.. and how we love this.. we long for this to work - but does it?.. we wish it did but unfortunately it doesn't - at least where it counts most - narratively.. the acting, along with its photography & sound, does but only fundamentally, where it counts most.. Mr Bloom at the center is quite capable of carrying an expensive epic film.. but what agenda is the film serving?.. what themes?.. is it the Christian west against the Islamic mid-east? or vice versa?.. or the social order?.. nonetheless, we still love the imagery (Eva Green's beauty adds to that) - & the sound.. we still love its Epic-ness...

All Is Lost
All Is Lost (2013)

The film is stripped down to the bare bones of survival.. it's simple.. it's just one guy trying to survive on a sinking boat surrounded by a barren sea.. in fact it is a very un-movie-like movie - in both it's nuanced simplicity & clarity of focus...

'All Is Lost' not only has one of America's great actors (great film personalities) but is, simply put, very well-crafted (otherwise it is certain Robt Redford would not have put up with what he's apparently put up with).. yet no matter how wonderful, no matter how intelligently honest & ostensibly fit Mr Redford is, one finds oneself often asking: what is a guy - no matter what his age but particularly a guy in his late 70's - doing out in the middle of the Indian Ocean sailing all alone?...

Inescapable (2013)
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Nadda's attempt to make a film - a thriller - that might reach a larger audience than his far better 'art' films about characters / individuals.. although the acting is admirable and the photography is respectable, the story is predictable; no surprises here.. the subject might be timely but the story becomes dull.. he shudda' hung out for an equally (if not the same) timeline but a way better storyline - he had the actors to do so...

The Town
The Town (2010)

Ben Affleck may have the good looks to be in front of the camera but he has proven to be equally as good, if not better, behind the camera. Unquestionably a ways to go before he's in the same league as Mr. Eastwood, but appears to be well on his way - if he continues to make smart & engaging films such as this. This his second movie, getting overwhelmingly positive responses, appears well worth more than one viewing (on DVD, at least, for subsequent ones).
