"I shall fight so that failure is possible."
There should be an "Need to see" button for films like this. Or perhaps an "I would kill Xavier Dolans mother to see this film" button.
All you need to make a film is a girl and a door.
More blood, please.
Wait for the DVD/BR, push mute and enjoy.
Okay, I admit it, I do not understand the Coens at all.
This shit and A Single Man makes one hell of a shitty double bill.
It's kinda disgusting to cry over a pile of money, but it's hard not to. Damn Capra, damn U.S.

People should see The Friends of Eddie Coyle instead of this flick. I think.
Watching the restored version of this beauty on the big screen blew my effin' mind away. As Brando would say if he could watch this film in his cave; the colors, the colors.
This was the worst piece of crap I've seen in years. Death to quirkiness!
Kurt, come on. Jarmusch isn't particularly interested in the relationship between men and women. His films are almost exclusively about loners, although sometimes in pairs or in trios. But don't get me wrong, I share your enthusiasm over Carax. And I can't wait to see his earlier films.
I don't know about that "notorious artistic failure" thing... allmovie guide should check their film descriptions now and then.
Short and cheesy, just as i like 'em.
Nämen! Thanks a bunch.
Yes, it is something Disney with this film. Although it wasn't as bad as The Princess and The Frog.
En horribel oplevelse!
I think it's time to add some of Zetterlings directorial efforts here. Nattlek, Älskande Par and especially Flickorna.
Well, I don't understand why that triangle is so bad, neither generally or in this film. The thing with Polytechnique is that it's "hero" (as you call it) fails, the love interest (which you might as well call friendship) doesn't lead to anything and the villain neither wins or looses. It's the Hollywood triangle structure reaching the point when it sees it's own weaknesses... If you wanna go that far.
So we meet again Sebastian... I agree with you that this film i entertaining. But entertaining in what way? I know by fact that you didn't laugh through the whole screening, so it must be a different form of entertainment. And when it comes to depicting violence (a violence that mostly appeatr outside the frame), I see nothing wrong with how this film i portraying the massacre. As long as it isn't fun to watch, and as long as you want the violence to end, I see nothing wrong with it. I think that you should be a lot more upset with many horror films, where violence is supposed to be something to experience and then laughed at. Oh! And by the way. I don't really see why the killers beard is a "psycho-beard" and whilst the "heros" beard is not. Maybe you could shed some light on that one for me?
Ubu! Ubu! Ubu!
