film having fun
how could you not fall in love with this?
Surprisingly true and real. An honest film worth recognition.
I feel I am one the few who can look at this film as only film since iI have not read the graphic novel but I have read many others of Moore's work (who's work can be good movies, but never perfectly adapted to the screen.) This film was ridicously entertaining and visually striking. Personally, i think it's hard not to enjoy.
Episode V is the best of the first trilogy and Episode III is the best of the second trilogy. Episode I, II, and VI are just awful.
oooh when is this released?
A brilliant filmmaker. His strengths: Original stories, good casting, and great cinematography. His weaknesses: His ability to make an ending to live up to the rest of the film
While watching the first half, I thought the film was absolutely brilliant. As the film winded down to the cheesy Bollywood ending (I do understand this is what he was trying to accomplish) and it became weaker and reminded somewhat, sorry, of a Lifetime movie.
"The 400 Blows" and "The Bicycle Thief" only remind of a certain honesty missing out of films these days. There's just something about it.
Add Gummo the films, that's my personal favorite of his work
This film is a true realist masterpiece. De Sica never digs to deep into our hero, probably because he is a simple man without much struggle besides that of feeding his family. Our hero's face and his son's never fail to remind how potent the human face. It's amazing how De Sica can show you the human soul in just black and white. Also, isn't it called The Bicycle Thief?
