Haha that's because Bresson used non-actors in his films later in his career. Which I find distracting at times to be honest.
This film holds the dubious honor of being the worst I've ever seen. Nothing about it even makes sense. It's great.
I remembered this as being funnier than it is. Well, Winona is great.
This was some dark shit for Disney. I was a weird kid though and loved it. I still enjoy it now.
If we have to compare to Band of Brothers, I have to say I found that series so incredibly boring I couldn't finish. There was a kind of nostalgic, softened distance to its portrayal of war. This series however has a terrible emotional intimacy to it. Just searing and relentless, grisly business. The scene where Sledge goes into battle for the first time was incredibly well done.
overlong but it's a really fantastic portrayal of anxiety on olsen's part. she really sells the film for me
It's magical that people like this movie so much. Okay it's mildly amusing but really really limited in scope and characterization and the whole nostalgia thing is just embarrassing.
Everyone in this film is terrible at acting. Also horses whinny every five seconds. There's something about it though. I like the dialogue if not always the delivery, and how it is patently staid while still impressing the fact upon the viewer that 'shit is getting real'.
I have no interest in what you know about cinema (or cooking either) or what you don't know. All I see is that you don't have any idea of Bresson's method, obviously. He made 13 masterpieces and in each film he developed what he had in mind which is evident perfectly in his last film, l'Argent. He was truly an auteur, writing with camerawork and sounds with a distinuished style. Thanks God we have Bresson films.
I feel like I would have been more into this if it weren't so insistent on humiliating its central female character. I wanted to like it more but I got such terrible second-hand embarrassment I couldn't finish.
I'm a bit obsessed with this film; to me it's sort of a noble failure. Saw it at two in the morning at a time in my life where I was depressed. I don't believe all the fragments come together but there's something about it all.
This film deserves so much more credit.
I just love the female lead in this
I don't think this film realizes fully what it's getting into. Not much of a romance, but on family and dying childhood idealism it's not bad. Also I firmly believe we're supposed to read Will Donner as not all there mentally.
It's an overall decent version (really nice colors, but maybe it overly focused on them?), but W O W at Mia Wasikowska. She's exquisite in this.
The writing is kind of lazy in parts, but the parts with John Lithgow are moving and the special effects are mindblowing. It makes for genuinely discomfiting viewing until the final half-hour, which does stretch credibility. They gave Freida Pinto NOTHING to do though. She was like set-dressing, which is pretty disappointing. WHAT R WOMEN WE DON'T NEED ANY IN OUR MOVIE
I award this film no stars, despite the appeal of Ryan Gosling, in general and shirtless, and the hilarity of the mustache worn by the actor who played Allie's father. It is not so much a movie as it is a horrible montage of every romantic-movie cliche of the past several decades. I wasn't expecting much, and it still managed to disappoint.
This film is so emotionally resonant...and yet I feel it could have been EVEN better. I will still be thinking it over for days and weeks to come.
Brad Pitt cannot act and David Fincher hates women. That's all I can conclude from this movie (combined with my analysis of Fight Club and The Social Network).
Quite honestly this is one of the worst films of all time.
This movie holds up pretty well. One of the rare horror movies that manages to be both scary and INTENTIONALLY funny.
This film's depiction of complicated social-racial issues is like being talked down to by an unintelligent and petulant child.
It was so inexplicably dark that I couldn't see what was going on half the time. My two stars are for Cate Blanchett, mostly.
Unbearably mediocre, shallow, and sexist. For me, the only highlight was Andrew Garfield.
I was looking forward to this film and I greatly enjoyed it... up to the unexpected (for me) blackface scene. Wow. No.
How great is that moment when they all decide to be silent and Godard cuts all the sound. This movie is truly cinematic joy. Yet, it's not my favorite of his- there are many I like more.
This film is such great fun. I'm in love.
Not brilliant but very solid, realistic and moving, and with some great performances.
I actually found the cinematography unimaginative, but Firth gives good performance as always.
I want to build a shrine to Giulietta Masina's face.
Bacall totally makes this film. She steams up the screen and I loved her effortless cool. It's like Bogart and Bacall invented sexual chemistry.
