At the time of writing this review (February 2006), 'The Muse' is the 4th most viewed film of the year. No other film has ever surpassed it in terms of popularity. It's because of this movie, I now like Mexico, and the women I met there. I decided to watch it because of the strong woman in the lead, who I would never have suspected of being so wonderful. I thought it was going to be an American woman who was not accepted in Mexico. Instead, it was a Mexican who was different, so good. This movie is a total visual delight. The costumes, the landscapes, the music, the photography, everything is breathtaking. The story line is interesting. There are some side stories, but the main story is the main character, who is an unconventional Mexican girl, who just wants to fit in, but ends up marrying a man who doesn't care about her. Her life is about to change when she realizes she is in love with a non-Mexican, who seems to care about her, but in reality doesn't. She was an outstanding actress in this movie, and there is no better actress in Mexico, I think. This movie is truly a must see. If you can't believe the two leading women are really Mexican, this is a movie you will love.

This is a really beautiful movie. A couple who's been married for about 15 years get separated, and they fight over custody of their kids, with the wife (Brie Larson) arguing more than the husband. It's a very heart-wrenching, touching movie, and also very well written. It's based on a play and the characters are written with very strong characters, so you really feel like you are watching a play. And I think this is a great way to make a movie. I've seen this one twice in one day. So good. I recommend it highly.

I was told to watch this by my father who lives in Kansas and never got a chance to see it before it was shown here in Brooklyn. When I finally got the chance to see it, I was quite taken by it. Many of the subplots are totally off-the-wall and crazy, but all of the subplots are related to people we know. The ending makes you feel like you just missed out on something big. It is just like a bad movie, except without the laughs. I'd say this movie is a good mix of "Citizen Kane" and "Bicentennial Man" and a bit of "Dirty Dancing" thrown in.

We, the global citizens, are one in this small country and we want to share our joy, our love, our sadness, and our celebration. I salute our school and the children who made this film, it's the people who pay taxes for the freedom of speech. We are a country, and we will continue to be the country. We will not compromise our liberty, our independence, and our dignity. Now, we live, we love, we pray, and we survive. And we can do it again, together.

I actually came to this movie with my husband and we both were utterly in love with this movie. I am a big fan of Eduardo Sanchez-Gijon's films, and I was thrilled when he directed this one. There is so much intensity in this movie, that I could not take my eyes off of the screen. It is a beautiful story that has layers to it. It does a great job of showing us how the two men feel about each other, and how they feel about each other in their lives. It also does a great job of showing us how this corrupt system works. The scene where Eduardo meets a prostitute and it makes him angry is perfect. It is a perfect example of what goes on in the world of Mexico, and how people think they are above all the corruption in their society. The best scene in the movie was when Eduardo tells the prostitute, "I am going to kill you." The line that sums up Eduardo's character in this movie, is the one where he says, "I'm going to kill you." It is beautiful and perfect. It shows us how Eduardo is so angry, and how he sees the world through his eyes. The cast is fantastic. The cast is incredibly well casted, and each character is fully realized. The cinematography is beautiful and gorgeous. I really do love this movie, and I will definitely be seeing it again. If you want to see a good movie, see this movie, and if you want to see a great movie, see this movie. 9 out of 10 stars, and I was blown away by Eduardo Sanchez-Gijon's masterpiece. Check it out.

I have seen a lot of movies from 1990's that I consider the best movies of that decade. Few of them are from that decade, and most are from that decade's cinema. This movie is definitely in the top 5, and I love it. I love all the emotions and the acting. I especially love the little girl, Pita, in this movie. And the masterful scene, when Pita takes the toilet. That is so great. It is a movie that I would watch again and again. It is very important to see this movie, because it really touches us, it is such a good movie, it is so good. I love this movie!

A little known gem from the works of the late British director Terry Gilliam, "The Man Who Wasn't There" is a dark and serious look at the lives of two young men, one an unsuccessful cop and one a troubled teenager. The cop is Travis. He's has trouble understanding what's going on around him. His daughter has a problem, his wife left him, and he gets a call from a mysterious stranger to find her. This has to be one of the most intriguing story lines I have ever seen. The first time I watched it I was amazed. It's a movie that has a strong emotional component to it. The story is quite original and takes you into a place where you won't be able to forget it. It will stay with you a long time. This is not just a movie with drugs and rock and roll. It has an intelligent plot that will touch your emotions. The cast is perfect. I can't imagine anybody else doing the job that Jamie Bell did, and it was just really great to see this brilliant actor on the screen. I would rate this movie a solid 8 out of 10, and that's a very high rating. Definitely recommended.

A frightening look into what the popular underground culture of the 70's was really like. This documentary looks at the forces that shaped people like Brad Pitt, Anna Paquin, Ron Perlman, David Bowie, Eddie Murphy and others. This documentary is definitely worth a watch. See it for yourselves.

Most of the criticisms against this film are true: it's slow, has very few interesting moments, and is not entirely coherent. But the issue I have with this film is not that it's a film without structure, but that it's a film that never delivers. One could take its own problems, but its themes should be important enough to draw attention. The structure of the film is a little bit jarring, as it centers around the first meeting of the two main characters. I thought this might make the film interesting, but it doesn't. Instead, it reminds me of the film Dazed and Confused, which also had a very good structure, but I didn't find that part of it to be interesting. I did, however, find a lot of the other aspects to be interesting, such as the dramatic buildup to the second meeting, and the ending. But none of that is what you'd expect from a film about a drug dealer. As a film, it's okay. But as a work of art, it's not good. I have no idea why this film has been so harshly criticized.

This is a great film and one that I hope to see again. It is essentially a film about grief and the courage to endure that grief. It is also an exploration of the tenacity of man to survive and find a way to change the course of the tragedy in his life. The film is beautifully shot and the story is fascinating and gripping. The performance of both the actors and the director is very strong. It is quite impressive to see one of our finest actors, Tom Sizemore, in such a serious role. His acting ability was never in question. The acting in general was also very strong. The cast was led by a very powerful performance by Felicity Jones, as a mother and a grandmother. Tom Hiddleston was also great as the future Tony Blair and Sam Rockwell was also very strong in the lead as Tony Blair's son. The supporting cast was very strong. A lot of attention has been paid to the actors. The directing was superb. The cinematography was beautiful. The editing was fine. The score was very good. Overall, a very good film. 9/10 Bethany Cox

I actually thought that this film was an above average and very creative and unexpected film. It was a very difficult film to make. I found that the first fifteen minutes of the film were very slow but the story developed much better in the rest of the film. I found that it was difficult to understand what was happening. But that is the beauty of a film. The film is not all that you can see and hear. You have to concentrate to understand the film. The whole film was very intense and I really liked the way that the film was put together. I thought that the editing of the film was very good. You can see a lot of time goes by when it is slower than the other times. The last part of the film I thought was very good and gave an explanation to what happened. I think that the film is a great work of art and very well put together. The film is not easy to understand but I think that the film is worth it. The film is not the sort of film that you will be able to take your family to see. The film is a very difficult film to watch. I would recommend this film to a great many people. The film has a very deep meaning and makes you think about the meaning of life.

This is a superb movie, with some great characters and strong acting. I feel that it deserves a higher rating. The message is well done, the sense of community is there. And the very idea that a murderer was a hero is very true to life. Some people may have issues with the movie, but if you take it for what it is, and don't think it's some propaganda or right wing nonsense, you will enjoy it a lot.

This film is the story of Vincent, a young American working for a Mexican company in America. Vincent is confronted with the world of drugs and violence, while his best friend and co-worker Joe meets with a terrible accident in his head. From this moment, the movie takes a weird turn, where people are taken to a strange and surrealistic world of drugs, violence and madness. The music is also very disturbing and deserves to be listened to, but this movie deserves to be viewed in the right way. My vote is nine. Title (Brazil): "O Estranha" ("The Other")

I'll just make it up as I see it. The last time I saw this movie was on a plane last week. The two men who played the main roles in this movie, David Strathairn and Ray Winstone, were sitting in front of me and we were both laughing at the moment. Although I didn't really expect anything from it, this movie really is something special and that's why I love it. Every scene is different and yet the same. The different moments will make you think differently. This movie is the story of a man named Joe, who's life is filled with dramas, crime and finally a friendship between two men. While watching it I felt myself in Joe's shoes, which I had never felt before. It's the story of a man who is depressed, loses his job, gets a hard time from the cops, gets turned away from the hospital and gets in touch with a woman who wants him to help her get a child. What follows is a film that will get you into Joe's mindset, make you believe in his friendship, make you cry and make you laugh. The story is not about finding one person to be a friend with, but about finding one person that you can feel something for, someone who is important to you. I loved the fact that I was able to feel for the main character. I loved the fact that I was able to laugh at some of the parts that would make me feel sadness, I felt a certain amount of pain from the person who made me feel the way I felt and I feel a lot of strength in having watched this movie. It's a film that, although it may seem violent, that it shows the beauty of man and of life. I loved this film and recommend it to everyone. 10/10

There is a genuine talent for an actor in this film. Almost every actor and actress have a strong performance. The story is hard to believe, and I would have liked to have seen more of the horrors of human trafficking and the dark side of social behavior. However, I'm glad I saw it.

I got the opportunity to view this film for the first time today and was pleasantly surprised. I am not a religious person but I am very aware of my time and I would definitely recommend this film to anyone looking to find out more about one of the most famous convicts in Mexican history. I would say the film is definitely worth seeing because it has a realistic feel and many of the scenes are very well done. The story itself is very interesting and there is not much dialogue in the movie but there is enough dialogue to tell the story. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to learn more about a man who was convicted of killing his brother in the 17th century. The film itself is very short and I would recommend watching this film in the evening after watching The Guilty. This film does a good job at portraying the violence of the time.

What an incredible story this was! The atmosphere was incredible, and the characters were so true. It was my first introduction to Mariano Jimenez, and he is such a great actor. He plays his character extremely well. I would recommend this film to anyone. I've never heard of it before, but I will definitely buy it when it comes out on DVD. I loved it, I cried, and I'm on the edge of my seat when I watch it again. In the beginning of the movie, when he is walking down the street and sees the phone ringing, it made me cry. The stories he tells are incredible. It is a beautiful movie, and I hope it can make people to see it. It really is an amazing story.

This movie is extremely depressing, but very touching. It does a wonderful job of conveying the desperation and loneliness of the characters. I think the writer made a great movie with this subject matter, but I don't think the director did a great job at conveying the message. I think the director does a great job with the camera work, but the camera works are a little over the top. I think the director would have been better served by using the director's hand-held cameras, or maybe the same camera that is used for the drug-related scenes in the movie, but that would make the movie a little more realistic and have a more natural feel to it. It's a movie that you have to watch a couple of times to really get the best out of it, so it's not something you can watch once and forget about.

I remember watching this as a kid in my teens. I still find it amazing and heartbreaking. It's essentially about a group of friends, probably friends in high school, who reunite and revisit the past. They reminisce about the events that lead up to their death at the hands of each other and the way they have hurt one another. It is essentially a recapitulation of the characters' lives and their potentials. They reunite and replay their lives through flashbacks and commentaries on the past. They start off not at all well, but each has a good run of time and then it's time to stop and look back at the same scene or scenes in the past. The story unfolds as they watch clips of old friends with no plot or reason. They reflect back and forth between the clips of old friends and the stories they might have heard from the friends who died at the hands of one of their friends. This is a sad, but at the same time humorous and a powerful film. I don't remember this film being popular back then, but I find it almost impossible to find. It's a very sad film. Even though I know I can't give this film an actual recommendation, I will still mention some things about it that should strike a chord with anyone who has watched it or even has seen it. The film is not overly violent. It does not force the audience to laugh at the events. In fact, it takes the film away from any kind of humor. It's actually quite disturbing. The first thing I noticed is that it takes place in a small town. This is extremely disturbing. It's almost a textbook of a small town. The two main characters are a group of old friends who have gone through many different things and they have a lot of different past experiences. The two main characters are George and his friend Willie. George and Willie have two of the most horrific stories. Willie was killed and George was sent to a mental institution. George tries to start over in life with Willie and himself. The story of George's death isn't the one that has gotten the most attention. George told Willie that they had to go away together and Willie said that he was dead, but George said that he had a different plan. George said that he would stay until Willie was "clean". George is upset that they are making plans for their future and that they haven't talked about that. George gets a new job and changes his name to Bill. He goes to a girlfriend's house. He says he's going to stay with her for a while. This is just a few examples of the gruesome events in this film. The film was released in 1985. I think that many of us were too young to have known or seen these events. The ending is incredible. This film is a film that I'll watch again and again.
