Re: Last Seen Movie - The Latest Movie You Have Seen; ratings

The Wife (Björn Runge, 2018) 6/10 The long and happy married life between a successful writer (Jonathan Pryce) and his wife (Glenn Close) is gradually revealed to have long-gestating cracks. Simmering just below the surface of a well kept facade is a marriage of inequality, rampant infidelity, secre...

Happy Together (Wong Kar-Wai, 1997) 10/10 From a director who is known for his swooningly romantic films comes this devastating story about the breakup of a relationship shot in an energetic and intense style. The film is visually eye popping, shot by the brilliant Christopher Doyle in stark black a...

La Ley del Deseo / Law of Desire (Pedro Almodovar, 1987) 6/10 Flamboyant but rather erratic film has the director's usual grotesque yet very human characters entwined in a mesh of sex and longing. The penchant to shock is evident in the film's opening as a young man is directed (in a film) to strip ...

The Fast Lady (Ken Annakin, 1963) 4/10 A naive Scotsman (Stanley Baxter) buys a sportscar to impress a girl (Julie Christie), daughter of a haughty aristocrat (James Robertson Justice) who hates him. Leslie Phillips is amusing as a womanizing cad who sells him the car and is competition for the girl...

A Star is Born (Bradley Cooper, 2018) 3/10 Does the world really need yet another remake of this old chestnut? After all there have been versions of this story in 1932, 1937, 1954, 1973 (Bollywood) and 1976. Not sure about the world but Hollywood certainly needs another version because it knows that...

to the ludicrous take on old ladies called Book Club that to my horror I've discovered some little old ladies actually like. Ludicrous? Yes, the plot certainly is. But where else can you see so many famous female stars together on screen? That's the reason why some have liked it. So many older actr...

Re: At Eternity's Gate reviews

The picture looks photoshopped. Either that that or Fonda has had more surgery than she admits to. She looks more anorexic than well-conditioned in the film. Candice Bergen is the only one who resembles a real-life character in this thing. Candice Bergen easily had the most interesting role in the ...

Re: A Star is Born reviews

Also, I don't know why this movie was made. Why remake such an old, tired story without even vaguely offering a new perspective on it, a new approach? I'll never know I guess. At the end of the day, this is indeed exactly the point. A rather redundant piece. Since when has Hollywood averted itself ...

The Happy Prince (Rupert Everett, 2018). 8/10 The last destitute years of Oscar Wilde's life are presented with heartbreaking grimness along with flashes of his former life when he ruled London via the stage with his witty plays. His infatuation and affair with Alfred "Bosie" Douglas (Coli...

Nowhere to Go (Seth Holt & Basil Dearden, 1958) 9/10 Bleak but stylish film noir from Ealing Studios is more in line with similar films from France (early Jules Dassin and the films of Jean-Pierre Melville come to mind) than with its American counterparts. The convoluted plot, co-written by Holt...

The Insult (Ziad Doueiri, 2017) 8/10 Powerful if heavy handed film, inspired by the Lebanese Civil War, speaks a universal truth about humans who, in the absence of a sense of closure, are unable to control their political hatred and prejudice which continues to grow and fester in their souls.
