I still haven't seen it but I'm amazed at the response by the critics. Almost unanimous praise.


And at least critics SHOULD know about the previous versions...

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

I I still haven't seen the latest version of A Star Is Born . . Even now, I could tell you exactly the reaction each member of this board will have to that movie. Those who will love it, those who will basically like it, those who will hate it... It's like a Rorschach test on our attitude to today'...

Re: A Star is Born reviews

it's about her being a bad actress). Well, in my repressed and reserved mind "While manifesting a pleasant presence and likeability, if not necessarily an exceptional acting ability" is as harsh a statement as yours, but MY mother taught me to be polite and always say something nice befor...

Re: A Star is Born reviews

I was so hungry for subtext - any kind of subtext - in A Star Is Born that I realized that I was listening to the scenes between Bradley Cooper and Sam Elliott with the same kind of gratitude I would reserve to Harold Pinter. Needless to say, these scenes are really quite superficial, but they seem ...

The Insult (Ziad Doueiri, 2017) 8/10 Needless to say, the Americans on this board quickly rejected this movie and its subtle (though powerful) implications - but then I am not even sure they know where (or what) Lebanon is :D They like Hereditary though :wink: Which Americans? I loved it, thought i...

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

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. The ...

Re: The Wife

It thinks it's Chekhov or Ibsen, when it's not even John Patrick Shanley. Yes - amd considering the locations and the director, one could have also mentioned certain Swedish directors and playwrights that it think it is :) But maybe because I went with very low expectations, I wasn't that disappoin...

Re: The Wife

I'm more in line with Mister Tee's take than those that flat-out HATED it . Yes - I can imagine one hating, say, Caligula or even - though it is a masterpiece - A Clockwork Orange... but hating The Wife?! Indifference, I can understand - but hatred is a bit too much honestly. Or maybe I'm just too ...

Re: BlacKkKlansman

I's a pleasant (if overlong) anedocte on a subject which shouldn't be pleasant nor anedoctal. And the final, recent real-life scenes, while definitely disturbing, feel even too urgent and important compared to what we have seen before. One can't deny that the movie is well-made, at times very well e...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

I know that some here won't agree - they CAN'T - but like it or not ideas can also be judge (by many) based on those who most passionately represent them - and undertandably so. A movement is defined not only by the principles it adheres to, but also by the people who lead it. And there's always so...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

In the meantime Asia Argento has been fired from the Italian version of X-Factor, which is ironic not only because nothing has been proved yet, but most importantly because in this country (Italy) what she may have done with this Jimmy Bennett would be perfectly legal. I would never do it, but like ...

Volver a empezar / Begin the Beguine / To Begin Again (José Luis Garci, 1982) 5/10 Warm bittersweet memory piece is a bore and still managed to win the Oscar for best foreign film (Spain's first). An old man (Antonio Ferrandis) returns to his old hometown Gijon after going into exile during the Spa...
