Hotel review

Posted : 1 week, 5 days ago on 10 May 2015 01:43 (A review of Hotel)

Great cast, nice hotel in nice New Orleans, but some corny VIP Arthur Hailey staff. Quine makes it decent. Melvyn Douglas, Merle Oberon, Malden are the best.

Operation: Daybreak review

Posted : 1 week, 5 days ago on 10 May 2015 01:39 (A review of Operation: Daybreak)

It has something direct, well paced crescendo, effective plot point in the early and great Heydrich assasination, great subplot of the treason, and good ending.

Mary, Queen of Scots review

Posted : 1 week, 5 days ago on 10 May 2015 01:32 (A review of Mary, Queen of Scots)

Elegant, good characters, Vanessa better than Glenda, because of his 'naif courage', nice landscapes, some academicism.

Wild Tales review

Posted : 2 weeks, 5 days ago on 3 May 2015 12:17 (A review of Wild Tales)

Ganas de contar todas las hisorias a la vez, quizá dificultad de mantener una sola por mucho tiempo. Ganas de resolver relatos sumaria y expeditivamente, sin giros y postergaciones. Bombita es el más desarrollado y se nota el esfuerzo de Szifrón por no llegar a los fnales previsibles. El primero, el del avión, es perfecto en su desenlace, rubrica bien los créditos.

Little Big Man review

Posted : 2 weeks, 5 days ago on 3 May 2015 12:13 (A review of Little Big Man)

I like how Penn arrives to a great meaningfil subject -with massacre and all- through this patetic comic pitiful man. Story goes round and round and that's the key.

Billy Wilder Speaks review

Posted : 2 weeks, 5 days ago on 3 May 2015 12:10 (A review of Billy Wilder Speaks)

Anything about Wilder´s films told by him is worth listening. Schñondorff is just a fan asking about Marilyn and Audrey and Bogart and so on

Mr. Turner review

Posted : 2 weeks, 5 days ago on 2 May 2015 09:23 (A review of Mr. Turner)

So full of details as one of those Turner paintings. Timothy Spall is as great as Laughton composing the painter freak; citing himself as a 'gargoyle'. He has a sense of spectacle, lightinf his canvas for private exposition, using language, provoquing the establishment (and Constable) with red paint.

Les Cousins review

Posted : 2 weeks, 5 days ago on 2 May 2015 09:20 (A review of Les Cousins)

More character than action. Oppositions (country and city, sophisticated fascist irresponsible snobbish Brialy vs democratic, naif, good natures, responsible Blain) are ambiguos as many things in this film. Great isolated moments,as Brialy with the candelabra, but the film is made for them all.

Prizzi's Honor review

Posted : 2 weeks, 5 days ago on 2 May 2015 09:16 (A review of Prizzi's Honor)

It's so tasteful and tongue in cheek, that characters even play with dialogues in their mouths. Old Hickey best of all, but Nicholson is great and wife Anjelica is great too, phrasing the title to provoque grandfather Prizzi. Turner can't compete with them, bus os coherent with her foreing background. Evil and love are endogamic with the Prizzis.

The Desperate Hours review

Posted : 3 weeks, 5 days ago on 25 April 2015 09:06 (A review of The Desperate Hours)

In a way it has aged; in the other hand, its a pioneer of police melodrama, in a situation of laboratory, with hostages and psicocriminals. Characters seem intelligent ans sophisticated in involuntary idiot subplots, then act in a too intelligent way. Bogey and March are impecable.

“I forgot how good was this. Windust must've been somebody to sign instead of Walsh. How tense, tight, ahead of its time, concentrated. The crime of crime, hits and contracts pioneer film of them all. Sloanne leaving a scene of cirme with a nervous De Corsia is great. He doesn't have to explain again” read more

fernando posted a review of Battle Circus

“Bogey not too harsh and June not too silly, they're convincibly in love. Skeptical war dialogues ok; but they're too heroic in their behaviour. At least, Bogey drinks and June has a nice gag, when she believes war is over because tents are being removed, as in a circus.” read more

“Too americanized visit to 1925 Damasco,with cosmopolitan restaurants where women go at night.Bah. It lacks feeling of exotism. At least Marta Toren is a exotic swedish, Bogey is himself and Sloanne is always OK.” read more
