The beautiful thing about this film is not only showcasing the athleticism of the athletes but what the Olympic games meant to Japan, as they were banned to have any kind of participation for a decade after WWII. The excitement and the sportsmanship of all the athletes who over a decade prior were at war with one another shows the spirit of the games that no matter what is going on, in the world, the Olympics is the worlds stage to showcase the best of humanity.
I've always had a love/hate relationship with the works of David Lynch. All of his films are a work of genius, but sometimes leave the viewers alienated by what the heck they just watched. However, it was those previous films that made me not only understand this film fully with his artistic vision but also makes me want to revisit his other films. Mulholland Dr. is a great performed work of art that will continue to memorize audiences for many years
Blood Simple is a great neo-noir that keeps you hooked all the way to its conclusion. A great Coen Brother's film.
I'm not a big musical guy, as I find most American musicals equivalent to cheese whiz with a few good ones that rise to the top. Jacques Demy's French Music is as beautiful as it is tragic. It's one that I continue to think about periodically from time to time.
A great Noir film by Edgar Ulmer that does not play out as a traditional Noir film. It moves like poetry as Al Roberts journey to be reunited with his love is thwarted by a series of misfortunes. Roberts sums it up best as he talks about the Saxophone player is not playing a love song but a dirge. Should be at the top of anyone's Noir list of films.
One of Danny Glover's best films as a drifter whose presence seems to expose the hearts of the people in the household as tensions arise between brothers, siblings, and parents, and culture change.
Such a zany film based on a controversial book of it's time. Loved Richardson's direction to the material and Albert Finney is brilliant as he is charming.
Wong Kar-wai's film of love and lost is beautifully shot and wonderfully written. Even during the focal shift in the narrative, it still flows nicely with its themes.
From the script, to the actors it is clear why this is a classic! Reiner does a great job of bringing Goldman's words to life to create such lovable and memorable moments
What a film! So bold, so poetic, so gruesome. A classic that continues to shock today.
I have watched this movie more times through my adolescence and it still resonates with its theme of finding commonality even in our differences
A film that follows young adults who are still trying to find their identity in the complexity of relationships. Sometimes to dialogue driven, their performances help balance it out
My first Derek Jarman film and blown away by the artistic aesthetic of Jubilee from it's satire to its fashion.
Most cringy film I have seen and I loved every minute of it.
Was pleased to be able to watch this great documentary of the Monterey Pop festival. Each set is captured beautifully and each artist is given the proper focus to showcase their personality and talents.
An emotional brutal tale of two buddies who relationship grows sour. Cassavetes and Faulk give their characters such depth that you begin to hate and feel sympathetic for them.
A great performance from Jones as she deals with the struggle of fulfilling her duties to her husband and daughter while dealing with the strong feelings from her lover over seas.
A Wrinkle in Time is a mediocre movie at best. The story of one girl's journey to find her father (and her self) is very powerful. The special effects are stunning and groundbreaking. Where the film falls short is on two levels. First, it takes too many liberties with the source material. With its religious undertones in the book, the film disregards all of those elements that helped drive the story and characters to the climatic end. Second, it is a film with hesitation. It tries to be somewhat true to the original source material while trying to update it for the modern audience. It leads to some moments being awkward and unpolished. If you want to see a well polished film, that is faithful to it's source material, then I would not watch this film
