I expected this to be way (sorry) better but it was moving in parts and also gorgeous. I now want to make this pilgrimage.
Movie Genre: Drama
Frank's wife has passed less than a year ago and he isn't doing as well as he'd like everyone to believe. When his four grown children cancel on a planned weekend visit, he decides to surprise them, against doctor's orders. While marketed as a comedy, it is really a drama...
I would recommend this movie just for the swimming pool alone, which is huge and donut-shaped. This is where Juliette (Kristin Scott Thomas) and her sister swim as they get reacquainted after Juliette's release from a 15-year prison sentence. The former doctor is starting over in Nancy,...
24 hours in Memphis: Tourists, lowlifes and Americana. Great music, funny stories and appearances by Screamin' Jay Hawkins as a hotel manager, Joe Strummer as a local delinquent and the voice of Tom Waits as the radio DJ.
This 1959 French New Wave film used groundbreaking editing and hand-held camera work to show the story of a French criminal, who is obsessed with Humphrey Bogart, hiding out with his American girlfriend in Paris. This simple story becomes a revolution on the screen through Godard's pioneering...
A gripping story of a group of Asian-American high school over-achievers who transform themselves into a black-market gang mixed up in drugs, theft and violence, all the while maintaining the appearance of perfection.
When 18-year-old George is killed by a toilet seat from space, she discovers she has become a grim reaper. Unfortunately, reapers don't get paid so George is forced to get a job in addition to being a "bail bondsmen for the disembodied." A sometimes funny, sometimes serious look at life and...
Not exactly sure what happened but I liked this; will watch again soon.
A spare, harsh film about two days in the lives of two young women in Ceauşescu's Romania.
Nearly as quirky as the radio show. This is good stuff.
It's hard to believe you can get emotionally wrought over a blow up doll.
A little sentimental but still a heartwarming and funny film based on the great duo, Petey Greene and Dewey Hughes, who helped each other become radio icons in the 1960s.
If you're a fan of the music of 1980s England, you should watch this movie. This drama, done in documentary style, follows the story of Factory Records and the Manchester bands that made it big in Europe -- bands like New Order and Joy Division. I picked this movie up because I loved the music...
I may be the last person in Denver to have seen this movie. Recommended by a friend when Flixster claimed we might need to get a divorce over this movie (his score 5 stars, mine not interested). He's right - it's 5 stars. Watch it now and watch it again.
You don't have to be an Orthodox Jew in Israel to get the moral of this story. Live, love, and accept all challenges as gifts. If you need a little boost in your spirit, check this film out.
On the surface, the subject matter of this film would appear to be rather depressing: a guarded dwarf loses his best friend, inherits an old train depot in rural New Jersey and tries his best to live in solitude. Almost immediately, he is assailed by a wonderful cast of characters, each with...
Wild and wonderful, The Science of Sleep is all about fact and fiction, reality and fantasy, waking life and the dream world.
This is one of those movies it's good to see on DVD so you can go back and try to figure out what the heck happened. Haunting and challenging, political and personal, the film makes you wonder from the very beginning who is behind the camera, what it is you should be watching, and why.
This is darkly fun! Folks have to watch their backs in this post-apocalyptic society in which cannibalism reigns, at least in this delicatessen...
Who would have thought a film about the impact of divorce could be done again in an original, humorous, and moving way? It hit a nerve in this child of divorce.
In a delightfully uplifting and symbolic story, redemption abounds, fun is had, and everyone's spirits are raised.
One of the final scripts by Akira Kurosawa but directed by Kei Kumai after Kurosawa's death, this is beautifully filmed, very symbolic, and a more Japanese look at geisha than Memoirs of a Geisha.
