The ice skating scene was in the book, only a little different
Only few times I have been struck by an actor's performance so profoundly. Lancaster is pure energy - take Duvall in "The APostle", multiply it with 1000 and there you have Burt praying to the sinners of rural america like God's best salesman.Havent read the book yet so I can't compare, but I ordered it straiht after watching the film. But you have to be a sucker for evangelical fanatism to appreciate the film fully.
The underwater scene made me think of the end of Kusturica's "Underground". If you steal, steal from the best!
Ceylan is like Bergman in Tarkovsky-scope. What more can you wish for?
Personally, on my best of the decade films-list.
This reminded me of the Dardenne films. Which is a huge compliment.
Really enjoyed this short, seen it a while ago but it still stays with me. The concept and the technique are well thought and done.
My favourite Bava film! great Slasher/Giallo!
Marxist Giulio Questi sets the bar high: gay fetish cowboys, lots of violence and communist propaganda; a masterpiece of the political spaghetti western.
Incredibly good adaptation of Dostoyevsky's novel. The changes Kurosawa made (the ice skating scene) fit the theme well and he brought the pages of the book to life on screen.
What a yugoslavian classic! You can only understand Kusturica's work in its entire when you know Sijan's and Aleksandar Petrovic's work.
