Give us a big shark, then we don't need a story! Give us some jokes, then we don't need characters. Deeply disappointed by Norway's most expensive film ever. The storytelling is extremely banal, and the film totally lacks creativity and originality. It seems like all they have focused on is the production design (and sharks and whales)...
Masterpiece!Not just cause of the amazing cinematography, there's also a great edge to the story of a troubled man who has lost direction in life and only search for conformity.Humans are conformists by nature, a problematic post-nazi/fascist case that Bertolucci deals with in a truly clever an insightful way!But, after all, its the poetic compositions and the cinematography which makes this one of the greatest films
The weakest movie I've ever seen at a international film festival. Shame on you, oh mighty Cannes!!
Nothing impressive about this film. The idea is nothing new and its not used as an idea but as a concept for cheap entertainment,but the entertainment isn't very entertaining if you ask me. The suspense is killed by the bad, and way too fast, pacing, and not least by the controlled monsters, cabin, gas, etc. The jokes are bad and the script/cinematography is uninspired. Only fun is to see all those monsters together.
In it's genre Titanic is a perfect film.
Jennifer Lawrence's appearance is the only reason I give this film two stars, and not one... She's on her way to be my new favorite american actress!
The little scene with Kraftwerks Radioactivity is just magnificent, and sums up what is brilliant with this quite so creepy film.
Truly brilliant! Hitchcock is a master and "Rope" easily belongs with his best works. In this film his impressive control over 'suspense-narration' is revealed in pure form. He turns a simple premise in to a tense and great cinematic experience - within the limitations of an apartments four walls. Impressive!
Stunning! Like walking in to a art museum of one of the greatest painters of all times and were the paintings come alive and tell their story. (Kind of like the consept of Toy Story in a art museum ;))
The first hour is breathtaking and extremly good!A bit uneven after that, but the ending is truly something.Noe creates a original piece of art and its fascinating to see filmmakers who go their own ways.Too bad he didn't manage to keep this at the top level trough the whole film,but maybe I'll let go off the downsides and raise this rating to five stars some day - cause you really feel raped after seeing this movie!
Classic family drama. Well directed and a good and engaging story. In Norwegian context it deserves 5/5 stars, but after careful consideration I gave it 4/5 stars. Maybe i'll change my mind!
A joyful and sad journey back to childhood perception of life! Brilliant!
Truly different! Interesting and poetic at times, but it's slow and difficult. I'm not sure I truly understood it, but I have a suspicion that it's really not much to understand. I think it's a movie you should feel and not necessarily understand. It didn't give me that much (some truly beautiful moments lift my rating to 3 stars), but I thought it was interesting in it differentness so I'm up for more Weerasethakul!
Charming! Pretty variable, but with some truly enjoyable scenes. I like the subtle political satire/criticism from these czech films from the sixties. Though, I've only seen the amazing Daisies in addition to this one, but they are pretty similar in these political undertones.
I have ambivalent feelings about this film. Visually amazing and fascinating! The visual style and the sound effects truly created a original and nasty mood! But the film really made me unwell, and I never developed sympathy or engagement with the characters - I just wanted to get out of the nightmare. And I never want to enter it again!
Hilarious, surprising and original! The energy and playfullness of this movie is inspiring. The movie should be a must-see in every film school to inspire the students to explore the endlessly possibilities of the film language!!
A fantastic movie! The film shows three different time eras in Taiwan (1911, 1966 and 2005). It's an incredible and hypnotic time travel. The part from 2005 is maybe a little too much Roel Puijkish (jfr. Digital media), but actually Hou Hsiao-hsien hits the nail on its head in his understanding of our time era! Anyway, it's the parts from 1966 and 1911 that really make the movie too what it is - they are very beautiful and nostalgic. The sharp contrast between the three parts make the film very interesting and impressive! PS. The female main character is really beautiful, and that is an aspect I always appreciate ;)
Not a good film, but a fantastic filmatic experience! Recommended, if you are looking for entertainment. One of my most memorable moments from the cinema last year!
