4/10

Movie has nothing to do with the black plague at all. Instead, it's a movie on the evils of Christianity.

you all need to get on this sorrentino guy, i posted about the first film of his that i saw "the consequences of love" this was possibly even better. such visula style, i mean staggeringly stylish. beautiful film making. im not sure who to even compare him to in the u.s. this guy has more flare than a young tarrentino! and this isnt non commercial film making either. his first english language film is opening at cannes right now. i guarantee you he blows up immediately and everyone is watching his films and loving them, i warned you first...as always.
9/10

Not to me. I've just watched the trailer and I didn't find it too appealing. If you watch it and it happens to be good please let us know.

Btw ukplayer4, I've just read a review on The Tree of Life by the best spanish film critic and he said things like "one of the best films I've ever seen" or "mesmerizing poetry in motion of incredible depth". Looking good, I trust that guys taste.

BLUE VALENTINE: 88/100

One of the most depressing films I have ever seen. When I told ppl this, I suppose they expected something sudden and tragic to happen but it just really was a very visceral look at fading love. Divorce is a cancerous epidemic and the notion that nothing really ever seems to REALLY last (love, in this instance, supposedly the answer to all life's problems) just really tore me up. The conversations between Gosling and Williams became uncomfortably REAL once it was clear she had fallen out of love with the complacent character of Dean.

I think those who take sides in a film like this is missing the nuanced complexity that unfolds when life will once again imitate this work of art. It's impossible to blame Cindy solely for the disconnnection and deteriorating bond of husband and wife. The music is great (specifically 'You and Me' by Penny and the Quarters) , acting hits home runs, specifically from Gosling. Appreciated the visual choices such as in the 'Future' room and throughout the flashbacks. This movie does a great job of portraying individual human fallacies in regards to building a life together SO WELL, that it made me uneasy. Doubt I would choose to view this more than one more time but it's a hell of an accomplishment as an earnest statement of lost affection

Tons of great interviews (especially Robert Irwin) and a great display of the growth of modern art in LA during the 50s/60s. It kind of epitomized the rebellious and chaotic image that I see when I think about California in American culture. I also liked how everything was shot in black and white (for the most part) except for the art.

8/10

APOCALYPSE NOW: 93/100

I received the Blu Rays for my birthday (theatrical and Re-dux). Decided to watch the theatrical cut and sheesh, did this look AMAZING on blu-ray. I never got thru the entire movie either by interruption or otherwise but glad I got the chance in this glorious format. Probably my favorite war commentary. Martin Sheen was magnetic right from the jump, his narration was instense. The scene explaining Willard's mission was awesome, such a unique plot for a 'Nam flick. This flick is just so much more ambitious than other war flicks IMO. It has some haunting imagery, specifically when they reach the final American outpost and then in Cambodia at Kurtz' fortress. Some really great cameos by a 14 year old 'Larry' Fishburne and Dennis Hopper. Brando did a great job with what he had written for him, even though I heard all was not kosher on that front while filming. Robert Duvall as Colonel Kilgore gave my fav performance as the desensitized leader who attacked areas merely for surfing spots and entertainment. This film embodies so much and reveals a wide perspective on the horrors of war. Def lived up to the reputation

Ebert's review didn't mention that at all.
