Wise Blood. Another interesting angle. Good thoughts!
This film appeared to be more inspired by Wise Blood than it did Scientology. Very well conceived and executed with standout performances. Another great work for Anderson!
In an odd way it reminded me of Apocalypse Now with the journey into the impenetrable forest, but there was something lacking. One didn't so much feel frightened as disgusted.
A glossy adaptation as one would expect, but very well done. Loved the use of stage sets in the film. Really gave it a unique look.
Nice chemistry between Cooper and Lawrence but the writing sucked, especially in the second half of the movie. Why they had to bring all that bookmaking into the movie is beyond me, really drug it down.
While there were a few holes in the narrative as Zeitlin tried to connect the "Bathtub" community with the outside world, the overall feeling of this film was grand and little Quvenzhané Wallis stands ten feet tall!
Salles captures the look but not the feel of the book. There were a few fun moments, but otherwise a sad and dreary journey into midnight.
Great film, whether you view it on a real or abstract level. Young Ivan is mesmerizing to watch. Good review at kinokultura, http://www.kinokultura.com/2011/32rr-return.shtml.
Andrei Zvyagintsev held me in thrall until the closing scene.
A children's story for adults, especially those who grew up in the 60s. Once again, Anderson proves how well he works with children.
Really enjoyed the way this documentary was presented. Reminded me of the old Errol Morris documentaries like Vernon, Florida.
Nicely presented, but the interviews could have been more in depth, rather than having all those explanations by Damon. Came across too much like a lecture.
Have some work to do here. Where's Of Freaks and Men and Brat 2?
I hope the success of this film will bring more Pelevin novels to the big screen. I thought Ginzburg captured the story well. I would like to see Omon Ra next.
It seems that Wayne Kramer's heart was in the right place, but that's about it.
I think Clooney would like to have this one back.
I think you have to be a baseball fan to appreciate this one. Well done film with a number of nice touches.
It seems that the aim of the film was to make Marilyn a cuddly little nymph for young Colin's pleasure. I thought the performances were mediocre at best. Branagh is no Sir Laurence Olivier.
Started out promising, but in the end was no more than an Austrian version of Friday the 13th.
I enjoyed this film all the way around. Super performances. I wanted more.
A moveable feast of sight, sound and even smell in this deeply evocative interpretation of Dr. Faustas. There is virtually constant movement in this film, as Faust is led through every nook and cranny of his medieval by a devil of a man, until emerging into unknown terrain.
I think persons need to understand that this film was made with young teens in mind, hence a PG-13 rating.
Looks like Roman played this one mostly for uneasy laughs. Not much to it.
I found myself enjoying Day Watch much more than Night Watch. Everyone seems much more comfortable in their roles and Bekmambetov was having a lot of fun with his characters.
Sad to say, not much there except some beautiful cinematography.
So many facets to the story, and very well told.
Really liked this movie. Had a few holes but none too big to fall into.
I will say this, the film sucks you into its orbit.
