There is much in this film that is easy to forget: it is in fact based on a true story, of which we know a lot of and that we do not know much about. But these facts are not important. The best thing about this film is the acting. Every single actor is very good, even if some of them seem a bit impersonal. They have done a great job, there is no doubt about that. There is a great deal of emotional and realistic drama in this film. In a way, I feel I have known the protagonist as he's looking at the old lady in the house. A friend I met, who lives in the same neighbourhood, told me that he was very close to the protagonist. I've been very surprised about this. He has a great reputation, an excellent job and a quiet manner. I could also not decide if he was doing it in a really weird way or with a real sincerity. I did not find out for sure, but I feel that he was. But there is a lot of raw emotion, especially in the middle of the film, that can really disturb you. For a documentary about this subject, this is a masterpiece. It makes you think about things that you have no need to think about. A great movie. Watch it!

I am not a fan of Sarah Polley's performances but I liked this one. It was funny and well acted and the story moved well, even though it's hard to keep up with, but you do get some answers. It also gives you an insight to a big part of American culture. As I left the movie theater, I heard a song in the background. I don't know why, but I think that the music is from New York City. If you want to get a better understanding of a little part of your own culture, see this movie.

I found this movie to be much more satisfying than the boring "Maine War" which my wife and I just had to watch over and over again. This movie will keep you in your seat the whole time. And don't worry, if you see "Maine War" (I wish I had), just remember that this is more exciting. Thank goodness I saw this movie in the theater because this movie will be in my top 5 favorites. The performances are phenomenal. I have never seen many actors play so well together. I never realized how hard it is to get a guy to do a role like this. Alan Rickman did it very well. And I think that Jim Broadbent deserves an award for being the greatest actor of his generation. The rest of the cast did a great job also. It was fun to watch. I think that the subject of war is too heavy and too difficult for most people to handle. But this movie is so easy to watch, it will make you forget about the complexities of war.

This is a very honest and very moving movie. The movie is somewhat slow in the beginning, but you come to care about the character and the parents' feelings for each other. You're deeply moved by the end. There are some parts of this movie that will make you feel sick. That's the only thing I can say about this movie.

A superb Canadian drama about the clash of social classes in Canada and the tensions and politics that face the ruling classes. This is a very complex film. The social class at play is not just between rich and poor. It's also between high and low. The film is a complex social commentary on the destruction of Canada by the War of 1812, the British ascendancy, and the emergence of the national bourgeoisie in the early 1800's. You have the low class of whites in Ontario, running a huge empire, controlling the government, the land, and the gold. The high class of the Canadians is the bourgeoisie, led by Macdonald (Justin Chatwin), who rose to power through his group. The problem for Macdonald is that he doesn't fit in with the upper class, which is made up of, of course, the Irish, and the unemployed. As Macdonald's rise to power grows, the class tension between Macdonald and the rest of the bourgeoisie increases, making it increasingly clear that the whole system of Canada and Europe is in crisis. In spite of the fact that it is very hard to tell where the class lines end and the race lines begin, it is clear that these classes are further apart than you would expect. In addition, it is also clear that the class conflict is not between the upper class of the upper class, but the lower class of the lower class. This is the subject of the film, and what really makes it a powerful film. It is also very important to note that this film is not just about class struggle, but about class control. It is a film about class relations, but is not a film about class. This is a very sensitive film to make. Many people probably wouldn't enjoy the film. While it deals with class, it is not about class, nor about class, and so many people probably won't like the film. But the film does deal with class, and if you don't like this, you might as well leave the cinema. The thing is that the film is a commentary on class, and this is important because we as a society have a lot of class problems. The political class in the film is more of a commentary on class, and a commentary on power. But the film also has a more philosophical way of looking at class. It is not clear if Macdonald is a racist. Macdonald is not a pure white supremacist, but he doesn't treat the people of Ireland as any better or worse than the other Irish. He treats them as a bunch of lazy, drunken knuckleheads, and if you watch the film, you get the feeling that he sees himself as one of them. As the film progresses, you get the sense that he is more than a racist. He may not be a racist, but he is a supremacist, and he thinks that the power structure of the country, and the control that he gets from the upper classes, is very good for the country. Macdonald is shown as having a definite sense of injustice against the Irish, and of class inequality. As time passes, Macdonald's attitude toward the Irish becomes more and more positive. He becomes a very good friend to the Irish, and very loyal to the country, and he becomes the great man he has always been. But he also gradually begins to feel like he owes something to the Irish, and is more and more willing to go along with what they are doing. This is not the case of a pure racist, but the other characters, and the people in general, are not sympathetic to Macdonald. They also seem to think that Macdonald has done the right

Gentleman is it's own form of cinema, not about black and white scenes that alludes to the common evil of racism or good and bad in the eyes of God. It is not about a similar story, but about a man who has so much lost inside him, that his own passions and good will overwhelms and disturbs the rest of the world. An amazing performance by David Thewlis, but also from all of the cast. This is a film that deserves to be praised, and for the director to get the recognition that he deserves. Thewhole film is worth to be seen, for the viewer who are looking for a good film that will stay with you and be remembered.

At its core, this film is about relationships and is one of the few films that touches on a very real, real sensitive subject. People who are very close and personal bond can be absolutely scary, however it is not always obvious, I believe that is why these relationships are so important. Everything in this film is a part of the subject matter, there are scenes where the main character is cleaning the bathroom, her older sister is cleaning her up, etc. Everything feels very real, and yet it is never made to be real. When I saw it was being shown on HBO and then as it came out on DVD, I was astounded. The story line is well-written and the ending is truly devastating. I hope you can see this film. There is so much in it, but not enough people will ever see it because it is not shown, or it is not a big blockbuster movie. Make sure you don't miss it. "Never let it out of your sight, it is a gift from the heavens." John Adams

This movie was incredible. I'd never heard of it, so I rented it. It was not that good but I would recommend it for people who don't like to see things happening in a straight forward way. It was one of the best movies I have seen this year. Definitely a must see.

I just watched this movie on T.V. and I think that it is worth to see in theater.it is quite powerful in a way. The way the movie was filmed is one of the best, because the story is well told and the cast is perfect for the role. You can feel sympathy and concern for the characters. The way the movie was filmed is interesting, because it's one of the rare movie that takes place in a village, and you have to watch it twice to understand the story. Also, it is shot in black and white, which has a special meaning for me, because it means that it is a black and white movie. I also liked the way they don't talk a lot and the way they talk is used to convey important points, which I think is a good idea. I also loved the music, because it is so well made. I think that the way this movie is shot makes it very good. It is very well composed. The way the movie is shot makes it very exciting, because it takes place in a village and that really makes it more powerful. I recommend this movie, because it is worth to see. I recommend this movie to people who are interested in making movies.

This movie was pretty good, but a lot of the movie was unrealistic and unreal. I understand they tried to be realistic but the plot was so unbelievable and unbelievable that it just got boring. My sister and I would say that we had a good time watching this movie, but if you can't stand that, then go rent some old pirate movies or something.

I love The Great Gatsby. The Daisy is my favorite book. I love the characters. I love the music. I love the scenery. And I love this movie. A terrific film that just might be my favorite of 2012. You've got to love Nick Cage's performance in this one. He's amazing. And Michelle Williams is great. I'm not going to say anything more. You have to see this movie to believe it. If you like this movie, I highly recommend it.

I think this movie is simply brilliant. But I have to admit that it left me cold. "Casablanca" was the same. I remember that even a good movie like "Casablanca" only had about 5-6 lines of dialog, compared to the length of this movie. I was even more dissatisfied with "The Candidate". It was the same. I could hardly believe that it was even rated so highly. But I'm glad it was. It was made in the right way. It wasn't preachy at all. It was mostly meaningful, and funny. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard at a movie. It was brilliant. Everything about it was perfect. The acting was superb, the photography was superb, the costumes were brilliant, and the sets were brilliant. It wasn't easy to believe that this movie didn't have a silly gay joke at the end. And the audience couldn't help but laugh in spite of the silliness. And I really had a lot of fun laughing, and being amazed by the movie. I could have been totally sucked into the world of this film. It was that good. It is a must see movie, and if you're looking for a movie that is intelligent, well done, and has good acting, I highly recommend "Casablanca".

I was really disappointed at first by this movie, I didn't think that it would be that good. I was wrong. It's a story of a family's friendship. It starts with a father who is old and a mother who is young and awkward. A movie that should have been made 30 years ago. It is a story of friendship, but also about loss, of disappointment and of what is good about life. I give this movie a 10 out of 10. Good Movie, one of the best I have seen in a long time. It is sad, but it is real, this family is strong and whole.

I watched this film on Netflix recently. The movie was almost over in a few minutes, but I kept watching to see if it would end. Finally, the credits started rolling. I must admit that I am a big fan of Amy Adams. I watched this film for her. Although the movie is very close to home for me, I found the story to be very realistic. If you are looking for a great movie, go watch this. I thought this movie would be for a child, but I found it extremely realistic. It has the same kind of ending that I find with most movies: You think it will end, but it doesn't. The movie is not for everyone, but for those who want to see a good movie, I would highly recommend this film. However, if you do not like movies that are very long, then skip this film.

This is a powerful film and many other reviews of it are inaccurate. Yes, the film was visually superb, but it is the main character, who is played by Jack Nicholson, who is the story, and he is so believable. In the scenes with the actor, if there is any emotion or emotional connection, it comes from the real actor. This movie deals with the trauma of the Vietnam War in a more realistic and emotional way than any other film I have seen. The performances are also very good. I give this film an 8 out of 10. It is a MUST SEE for those who like history, and people who have lived through war.

The movie gave me a lot of emotions, mainly because I was connected to the characters and the story, which I just couldn't understand all the mystery, because I couldn't understand the movie. The movie started slow and had a lot of unexperienced acting, but the more the movie went, the more believable and real it became. It wasn't very dramatic, but the ending was very beautiful and dramatic. I also liked the ending, but that's not all. The story is more realistic than others, because we actually see the things that happen, and I think that's one of the things that makes the movie more realistic. Some people are going to be disappointed by this movie, but if you understand the story and you can connect to the characters, you will like it. Don't be afraid of the characters, because they are very likable, and they are really likeable. If you think that the movie is too boring and stuff, don't go to the theater, because it's not. But if you can relate to the characters, it will be worth it.

First things first, this is NOT a political movie. It is a story about life and death and about death, and the human spirit and the human will to fight the bad guys. It is a story of redemption. If you don't believe me, you need to watch the trailer and watch the "flashback" scenes. If you're like me, you'll want to go see it anyway. See you at the movies. :)

I haven't seen "The Shack" since it was first shown and I love it. My favorite part was when the people were working in the kitchen and saw their knives falling in a pile and a man said, "You don't know how lucky I am, don't you, man?" I also loved the idea of the bottle and the bottle is the way it's supposed to be, one of the reasons the movie was so great is because of how scary it was and this movie really scared me. This is one of the best movies ever and I don't understand why it wasn't released in the theatres more often. It is so well done and I think it deserves the way it is and I don't think it would have been as good without those two main actors. They are both great actors.

I will be very honest here. I didn't want to see this movie because of the buzz that it was receiving. That said, I must say, I am very happy I did. The story revolves around a group of friends and their time in Maine. The story revolves around these friends and their experiences. I loved this movie. It made me feel like I had just spent the weekend in Maine, and loved the experience. I never imagined that I would relate to the characters and the story. Every time I heard the music playing, I could feel the emotion. I also thought the characters were quite believable and the storyline was quite entertaining. I will say that there are some things I was not happy about. I did not think the amount of time spent in Maine was enough for the viewer to get to know these characters. There is a scene where one character is in a hospital room waiting for an operation, and there is no one else. I understand that the movie is focused on the events of this weekend, but they could have condensed it into a couple of days instead of a weekend. The plot seems to go along at a slow pace. It took me a few scenes to realize that this was a movie. It also took me a couple of scenes to understand the lack of humour in this movie. I think if they had made the comedy part of the movie a bit more fun, I would have enjoyed it more. I also think that some things could have been more developed. For example, if you are a big fan of Dave Foley's music, I feel like you may not appreciate his performance in this movie. His character is so abstract and not a part of the plot. I can understand that the audience isn't used to watching this kind of character, but I think there could have been a few more scenes where he was in the story and worked with the rest of the cast a bit more. Overall, I think that this is a great movie. I was really happy to have watched this and I would recommend it to anyone that wants a good movie to watch.

I've seen this movie about 5 times and I'm still wondering if I missed something? It's very dark and I think the directors did a good job showing the loneliness of these characters. You actually do feel sorry for them, I think, and that's why it's a great movie. I was also very touched by the relationships that each character had. Overall I think it's a very good movie and I highly recommend it.

In this first feature-length film, writer-director Brian Taylor walks a razor-thin line between a tender romantic story about a social outsider and a fresh-faced indie film about the ups and downs of young love. As we witness the fortunes of Liam (Ethan Hawke), who is still in school and working in his uncle's restaurant, we're a bit more comfortable in our belief that his passion for baseball and a love for writing have a soul-deep meaning behind them. I personally found Liam a bit more relatable than the others, as he isn't a kid but a young man trying to make his way in the world, while Lacey (Ellen Burstyn) is a child trying to reach her parents. This is where the film runs into some issues; a lot of the story has to do with how Liam is different from the other kids, even though it's never explicitly mentioned. I'm just not sure it's possible for a young man to come into this world with a passion for a sport he hasn't played in his life (unless you count football, though he may have a leg up in that aspect). Still, it's hard to find fault with this film. If you're familiar with Taylor's other work, such as the short-but-powerful animated film "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" (which is loosely based on the life of McDonald's CEO, Ray Kroc), you know he is a passionate filmmaker, who uses his vast experience of working with the most unlikely of subjects and circumstances to tell a story, and give it some life. But I also think the movie is still a beautifully shot film, with a sparse but intimate soundtrack that sets the tone for the mood and tone of the film. All in all, a very nice film to experience. Overall, this is worth seeing.

After reading the book several times, I was glad to find this movie made for TV. The characters, including Violet's relationship with Emma, are so believable. There were no distracting special effects, and everything looked real. The cast was great, too. My only complaint is that the musical score was too "Beverly Hills Cop" for my taste, but I do not mind it. It doesn't ruin the movie, and the music makes it so much more enjoyable. Some of the actors were actually quite good in their roles. But for the most part, the cast was amazing. I don't want to give away the ending. As I said before, the musical score was a pleasant surprise. But it doesn't distract from the movie at all. If you are looking for a great, well-done movie, and you have not seen this movie yet, I strongly recommend it.

I wasn't expecting much when I saw the previews for this film. And it turned out to be a wonderful surprise! The acting was good and the plot of this story is both interesting and moving. It's about a man named Alaric who is trying to commit suicide and loses his mind. One night, he goes to his house, his former lover Brenda whom he had married, to see what is wrong with her. And so begins a battle between the man's mind and the one that he wanted to destroy. The ending was very well done and will definitely stir the emotions. It's a really well thought out and well directed film. Although it's really not that well known, I really recommend this film to anyone who's sick and tired of all the films that are coming out. It's about a man that lost his mind. He also lost his wife and his last memories. He just wants to kill himself. I would recommend this film to anyone who's sick and tired of all the films out there.
