Manifesto draws on the writings of Futurists, Dadaists, Fluxus artists, Suprematists, Situtationists, Dogma 95 and other artist groups, and the musings of individual artists, architects, dancers and filmmakers, editing and reassembling them as a collage of artists' manifestos, ultimately questioning the role of the artist in society today. Performing these 'new manifestos' while inhabiting thirteen different personas - among them a school teacher, a puppeteer, a newsreader, a factory worker and a homeless man - Cate Blanchett imbues new dramatic life into these famous words in unexpected contexts.

There are no words to express how wonderful this movie is. It is so full of ideas that it could never be described. A must see for anyone interested in art or if you just want to relax and watch a really great movie. It is that good.

I watched this movie at a preview screening and I was totally blown away. It is a strange combination of a Hitchcock movie and a David Lynch movie. It is interesting to me that many people (myself included) don't get it and think the movie is anti-Christian. It is not. The movie is a cautionary tale of how some things happen to some people. It's about how we should be careful and vigilant, even in the darkest of times. This movie is a lesson on what we all should be. One thing I didn't like was the lead character, Michael. I think he should have been more refined and less crass and self-centered. I also thought the way he handled his drug addiction was a bit overdramatic. But, that's nitpicking. I loved this movie and it is very different from what I thought it would be. If you are a Christian and you enjoy this movie, you will love it too.

I've seen several reviews here that give the film a very poor rating. I'd like to disagree. This is a very good film. It's beautiful to look at. There's a lot of symbolism, and you really need to pay attention to it to fully appreciate it. The plot, while simple, is very intricate. It's both confusing and predictable. But the good thing is, the plot is never predictable. The characters are very well developed, the music is excellent, and the acting is great. I liked this film a lot. I think it's a good film that is worth watching.

First of all, i never thought about who the true soul of this movie is, but i think it is Christopher Plummer. He is one of my favourite actors. I just felt the pain, the dream, the sadness, the rage, the joy, the sadness, the frustration, the anger and the rage of the movie. He is the one who makes you believe this story. And when he shows the death of his wife, the feeling of guilt goes to you. The sadness is for your mind to understand what happened to you. It is for you to realize how you became so powerful and how you can create the world that you want to live in. He is the one who shows you how to achieve that goal and how you have to make the necessary choices. I think that the movie is not a reality, but an imagination of a man who wants to be as close to the other as possible, without even caring about the consequences of his actions. It is a piece of art. And it is so powerful. All of us have some kind of ghost inside us, but most of us don't know it, and this movie lets you realize it. I think that the best part is the ending, when you get the feeling that everything is going to be OK, the feeling that you can never stop doing what you love. Everything is going to be OK. If you are not happy, i think you should see the movie. If you are not happy, i think you should feel the pain that was inflicted on you by Christopher Plummer's character, who was the best actor of his time. The best thing about this movie is the fact that it is real. The only thing you can be sure about is that you will never forget that it is true.

This is a brilliant film, and to me one of the greatest films ever made. It is also one of the most difficult films to watch. The actors all perform wonderfully and even those who are not actors are excellent. The only disappointing part is that the film runs a little long (it is well worth the watch). This is a wonderful film, not just for the actors but for the plot, and the message of a society in decline. If you want to watch a film that has a great story but difficult viewing then I recommend "Midnight Express".

There are some things I can say about this movie without getting into spoilers, the main point is, that it's actually very good. The acting is very good, and the directing is also very good. The soundtrack is also very good. In a nutshell, I really enjoyed this movie. It's not a "true story" but it does have the feel of a true story. Some of the things that I liked about the movie are: 1. The story itself is very good, and it's funny, dramatic, and even funny. It also has a good moral, and it's one that makes you think a bit. 2. The directing is very good, and I like the way the camera moves, and how it pans. 3. The soundtrack is also good. I also liked the way they did their "music video" for the movie. Overall, I really enjoyed the movie, and I recommend it. (At least 10/10)

The film "Out of the Black" is about the lives of six people living in the slums of Manila, Philippines. The film covers four periods in the lives of these people - 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. These are all major periods in the lives of the people, as they live in poverty, suffer from unemployment, and see the brutal drug war. The film is an incredible work of art, in which the six people in the film represent the lives of six different generations. The six main actors in the film are: Patrino Beltran, Almagro, Patrino Esteves, Ema Helena, Rene Cosi, and Mario Anzuoni. The actors are all amazing. The characters are very well-written, the characters are very well-cast, and the acting is very well done. The entire film is a portrayal of human beings, and the acting is amazing. The movie is extremely important and powerful because it depicts the lives of people who are completely disconnected from the rest of society. The life of these people is like living in a ghost town, and they don't see anything else than drug use. The documentary "Out of the Black" is a must-see for any film student. The acting is wonderful, and the photography is incredible. I recommend this film to anyone who wants to be a filmmaker. It is a great film and deserves to be watched by everyone. It will be a lasting film because it shows how people in the Philippines live.

The film is about the life of Ravi(Jawaharlal Nehru) from the time he is a child, to the time he is a man. It is a road movie and there is no talk of love and sex, as the film is based on dreams. The film is a masterpiece, not just a road movie. It is a story of transformation and the life of a man. It is a must see movie. It is a family entertainer, there is no sex, no drugs, no alcohol. It is a film of courage and soul. It is a film which is a part of Indian history. It is a movie about the impact of the Indian freedom movement and the battle of freedom. It is a story about a great Indian and it's a story which is told with honor and respect.

First of all I would like to say that I loved this movie. The cinematography is incredible and this movie is an amazing depiction of the tensions that exist between Vietnam and Cambodia. The story is not told like a drama, but a documentary. It has a very well-planned and well-written story and although I could have seen a lot of the mistakes I could not take my eyes off the screen. The movie has many meanings and some are hidden because the meaning is not meant for everyone. Some of the meaning are: 1) The scene that the Vietnamese friend finds the bodies of the Vietnamese civilians during the war is very important and conveys how the war was for them, but it is not one of the Vietnamese's friends. 2) The scene when the Vietnamese player (the Chinese) played his "Hair Ball" for his father is very important because he was the first Vietnamese to play a game in the war. 3) The black-and-white scene with the Vietnamese player is very important because the Vietnamese player's father was killed during the war. 4) The scene when the Vietnamese player had to destroy his parents' graves and the Vietnamese soldier's home is very important because the Vietnamese soldier was killed during the war. 5) The music in the movie is amazing. The music is very intense. It sends a great message to the viewer. The music is very heavy, but it is very important because it is the only means to express the sadness and pain of the Vietnamese player and his father. 6) The story is told in a very unique way. It is a very unconventional story because the Vietnamese player is not in the room during the shooting. The Vietnamese player is not a hero. The Vietnamese player is just a man, who is devastated by the war and now is a student at the University. The story is told in a very unconventional way. It does not conform to the other movies like "Abandon All Hope" or "Into the Wild". But it is a great movie because it can also be very confusing, because the characters are hard to understand and the story is a little bit complex. Overall, I highly recommend this movie.

This is one of the best films I have seen in years. The cinematography, acting and music are all top notch. If you're looking for a real tear jerker, look no further. The whole cast is spot on with no one holding back their talent. Also, some of the actors speak in a clear and clear way. This movie is a must see.

I first saw this film at a screening in Toulouse. It was wonderful. I have since seen it on DVD in Chicago. The acting is outstanding. The director knows how to weave the dramatic tension and comedy with the music. The music is essential to the overall effect. It enhances the dramatic tension. The characters are very real. You really feel you are in this movie. The cast is filled with very talented actors. Such a shame that this film was only released in France. I am looking forward to seeing it again in the US. I recommend it to all my friends. It is a classic.

If you're looking for a good movie to watch, go and watch this movie, you won't be disappointed, it is not the best movie but the best one I've ever seen, I'm very surprised with it, it was not expecting to be so good, I really have not seen the best movie I've ever seen, but this one is better than most of the ones I've seen. I'm giving it a 10/10, because it is an excellent movie, and it is a great movie for those who like action and thrill, and it is very good for those who likes a movie that contains all the things that makes a good movie.

I was in New York for the Oscars last week and was blown away by the level of devotion that the film was receiving. While this is an overrated film, I will still go out and watch it when it comes out on DVD. I know some people have left the theater because of the explicit content and what not, but I can assure you that this is not what the Academy is looking for. I am a big fan of Woody Allen's work, and I think his films are pretty underrated. However, this film is certainly not what the Academy is looking for. The main problem I had with this film was the confusing, time-wasting editing. It seemed like they had cut everything to get to the final edit, which was an unfortunate decision. As far as the ending goes, I liked the point that the film made. However, the last thirty minutes really sucked me in. It was like a really intense, "I'm right there with you, you're right there with me" type of ending. The acting was superb, and they all put on a great performance. There was no doubt that Woody Allen did not have the best performance, but all the performances were good. However, if the editing would have been much better, this film would have been a 10.

I have not watched this film before. I was only aware of it after watching it because a friend of mine told me about it. After watching it I really didn't expect it to be that good, I thought it was going to be just another chick flick but when I watched it I could clearly see why the director of this film is such a genius. It is so beautifully shot and so real that it has made me want to do something different to my life. I was really sad after watching it, and it made me want to see more of this film and find out more about the movie that got me to feel so badly about myself. This movie is like a dream. It's hard to put it in words. If you don't like it you're just a person that doesn't understand it. If you do like it, you're in for one of the greatest film experiences of your life.

This is my first review for IMDb and it took me a while to get to this one. I saw this movie in a private screening in Belgium. I was one of the first people to watch it and I have to say I was very impressed. There were so many different scenes that it's hard to know what to call them, but all together they were all very interesting. The characters are like a real storybook. The score is very good and the cinematography is excellent. It is just a shame that the director is no longer with us. So if you are one of those people who would love to see a really good movie, go and watch this movie. It's a very real, realistic and inspiring movie about the day to day life of a refugee, a sick person and an activist. I hope this movie gets a lot of attention because it deserves it. A movie about the day to day life of a refugee, a sick person and an activist.

Watched this movie and was so excited about this movie as I love Edward Norton. I just came back from seeing this movie and I have to say I was blown away. Edward Norton, what an amazing performance! This is my favorite movie. I have been wanting to see this movie for so long. Every time I see the trailer, I get more excited and go to see it. I love that this movie was about human and the love between people. I think this is the best movie I have seen in years. I love this movie and every time I watch it, I want to see it again. This movie is so amazing! Thank you Edward Norton. I loved it!

I've just finished watching "Miracle" in a crowded cinema and I had to stop several times in order to breathe again. This is a film about what it means to be human, a film that seeks to humanize the inhuman. In this film, the viewer learns that while we are all the same and we all die, that we are not alone. The film is beautifully shot and the story line is both engrossing and very powerful. One of the best films I have seen in recent years.

In a world of Hollywood blockbusters and mindless entertainment this film is one of the most powerful films of the year. Having had a true love affair with cinema I have seen far too many movies in my time to not have had a response to this film. It is brilliant and gripping and makes the viewer think about their own life and what they are capable of. I have not seen this film before and I am currently in Berlin. The music, the acting and the effects are all top notch. I felt this movie was a true statement against Hollywood. I saw it again last night and it still moved me. I am now going to see it a second time. This is not the kind of film I normally watch. It is a real 'must see'. A true film classic. I have seen this film over a dozen times and it is still the same. I think it deserves its current status in the top 250 of all time. This film is so powerful that it is not only going to stand the test of time, it will stand the test of all time. This film is not a fan film. It is a movie. This film is like a documentary, an emotional and deep look at a subject that has been handled in so many ways that it could be hard to follow. This film is not about "the Jewish doctor". This film is about human nature and what we are capable of. It is about the sacrifice that the human being must make for the betterment of his or her race and to have a better world. It is about the fear of death and the fear of being alone. This is a very real film. I believe that this is one of the few films that really manages to touch the soul.

This is not a "Borat". It is a true story. Just because it is a true story, it doesn't mean it can be made into a movie. It's more a documentary than a movie. The film makers didn't just give up and look for some excuse to make a movie. They made this film. I don't know where to begin, but I would like to start by saying that I was NOT disappointed. It had a real plot, no crazy shots or scenes. Just a simple, simple story. The actors were real, and that is what made it very special. The story is very much a true story. It is not fictional. The performances of all the actors were excellent. They told the story, they told it in a way that the audience could connect with it. It wasn't like "it's a fake movie, it's real, so we shouldn't believe it." It was just a real story, and they told it in a way that the audience could connect with it. It was very, very interesting. It is very, very real. The best thing about the movie is that it tells the story, and does not give you a Hollywood ending, or show you what the whole thing is about. It just shows you what happened, and shows you what happened in a way that you could feel the same way, and have the same emotions. This is what I mean by a documentary. The documentary should follow a story that is true, and should tell a story that you would want to watch. It was a good film, and I would recommend it to anyone. It has a very clear storyline and it shows the truth, and does not lie to you. It is definitely a must see.

Maurice and Joseph are two protagonists in this movie, and they're both very influential in the movie. I've watched it on TV many times, and I think it's one of the best movies I've ever seen. What's most surprising is the fact that it doesn't take itself seriously. The way it feels like a play, which makes it great. I think everyone should watch it, and I think I'm the only one who really liked it. I think it's very underrated, and maybe because it's a very simple movie, but it is very interesting. It's about two men, one rich and the other poor, who live in a house, and they feel like they're living on a small island. One day, the rich guy wants to leave, and he gets a letter from Joseph, saying he wants to go to another place, and Joseph's friend wants to leave too. They go to different places, but when they get there, they find that they're all lonely, and they are afraid of going home. Then, they decide to try and escape from their problems, and that's where the movie gets interesting. I think it's very well done, and I think everybody should watch it.
