Agreed Definitely memorable.

An urban drama that really took me by surprise. The story is cliched concerning London inner city youths struggling with poverty and violence etc but the writer/director certainly has a really bright future as the film looks superb, was imaginatively shot and is almost poetic in parts with it's B&W photography and unusual shooting angles.

Don't expect some sort of mock gangster type of film. It's more like a kitchen sink drama with chav's instead of hard working Northen folk but there is some real emotion in the film as well as an experimental bent.

Amadeus.

This movie never ceases to amaze me. I've seen it about 5 times now and have not gotten bored of it. The music is great, of course, and even though Maestro Salieri's role in Mozart's career was like 80% fictionalized in the film, it still gets a 10/10 from me.

It was really good; probably one of the top 20 or so of 2012!

I haven't seen this film for ages.

Same here. I haven't seen it since it was in the theater. It's on my Netflix queue though.

I'd like to see Amadeus again. I remember seeing F. Murray Abraham in an episode of Kojak and that's about it. I wonder what happened to Tom Hulce?

I would also like to see Kenneth Branagh's 2006 film of The Magic Flute.

This was shown recently on TV, and I'm waiting for the right moment to watch it.

Superb, senstiive, bittersweet science-fiction movie that was eco-friendly before it became fashionable. Bruce Dern is fantastic in the main role, almost pathologically dedicated to his mission, while the three robots steal the show. Plus a gorgeous soundtrack from Joan Baez, with one of the most heartbreaking but real endings of any movie, sci-fi or otherwise, you're likely to see. If you don't cry at the end, submit yourself for a 10000 mile check, cos you're not human!

I actually think she gets better with age, but Heavenly Creatures is still probably my favorite film that features her.

I just watched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind for the first time since it was in the theater. Even this many years later, it made more sense to me upon second viewing.

Remember when they used to make movies with no swearing or violence and actually told a story? Imagine an Ealing comedy crossed with The Italian Job and you get Hot Potato. Based upon true events where a back street Metal dealer comes across some uranium and tries to profit from it whilst being constantly double crossed and getting deeper into something he doesn't quite understand.

The period settings are well conceived for a low budget movie and it is well played by all. It is not an outstanding film but a great Sunday afternoon watch for all the family.



Jean Pierre Jeunet is at it again (Amelie, Delicatessen) in giving us kooky characters and situations but by now after watching so many of his films this set up is starting to wear a little thin and although the film is brilliantly shot the kookiness just grates too much for me personally and I would like to see him to step outside of this comfort zone.

However if you have never seen a Juenet film you will be blown away by his visual flair and eccentric comedy. A good film but not a great film.



What the hell did I just watch? Despite being a big Horror fan this was one film that I never got around to seeing until tonight. It's a Zombie action film with surrealism, philosophical musings with shots of black comedy and supernatural elements. Sounds confusing? It certainly is but there some moments of brilliance via it's set pieces and unusual camera angles.

Definitely one to watch again but whether I will enjoy it is another matter.
