I know what you're thinking. What in the world would have made me want to watch this movie in the first place? It's a guy's movie with some female-brodty-twisty actors. But if you give it a chance, you'll see a story about growing up in a boy's world with more twists than a Ferris wheel. The director, Ron Charles, knows how to keep the story moving along. The story is about the sister of a kid who killed her boyfriend and then let his body decomposed in a shed (or something like that). The brother can't control his temper and the police are doing nothing. But then he kills himself, too, and the story continues, like a musical. The only problem is, the brother's sister, Alison, isn't as interesting as her brother. She's the sister who wants to know the truth about what happened to her brother. That's all the movie is about. The movie is a love story about a girl and a boy. I liked this movie. It is a very well made movie. It really gets you thinking and it leaves you with something to think about.

I was pleasantly surprised at this movie. It is not like anything I have ever seen before. It starts with a fair amount of mystery and then turns to dark humor. It is a movie I would definitely recommend for people who want to see a very different movie, but still have a good story. The characters are very interesting, and the acting is great. It is hard to find anything negative to say about this movie. I am giving it 8 stars.

A letter. A harsh note. And I suppose even a blistering tirade. I found it to be a rather quiet film, but the message was loud and clear. I'm not sure I've seen it before, but it is the same message that surrounds the cases of the young women in this film: "Never give up.". We are given the message of what should be, that this can't happen to anyone. How will we treat our children and teenagers? Will we encourage them to take to their faith or will we turn their lives into a nightmare? Will we be able to keep our children safe? These questions were only brought up in this movie, and the answer was clear. I think it is fair to say that the film wasn't at all obvious. It was very subtle, and yet I felt every minute of the film. I felt the fear of what would happen if I didn't get the message. I felt the guilt of being a good parent. I felt the pain of the girls. I feel the love of God and the forgiveness of the girls. I also felt the sadness of the father who lost his son. I've never been one to cry but I thought this film was one of the best I've ever seen. I don't know how the film did so well at the box office, but I want to see it again and I will see it again and again. It has a lasting impact and will haunt you forever.

I thought the first half of this film was superbly made. The pictures looked fantastic. They were stylistic and very well made. I'd recommend this film to anyone interested in art, film-making, or anyone who enjoys an intelligent story. If you like a film with an interesting story, which has some style, and is made by people who really mean what they say, this is a film for you. This is a film that's made with an eye to accuracy and fairness.

I really liked this movie. The story was interesting and I really liked the actors involved. I thought the director did a really good job. The ending was actually very tragic. I don't know what made me turn it off so early. I wish I had it all to myself. I will definitely watch it again. It is good for anyone who wants to see a different perspective of war. I am glad I didn't miss out on the plot of it. I like to watch and listen to a lot of classical music, and this movie did exactly what I wanted it to do. I am a music lover, and this is the perfect movie for that.

This is a very interesting, thoughtful and emotional movie about a young woman who refuses to go into her mother's grave to bury her dead husband, her dead father, and her dead brother. She believes that, once she is dead, she will become a ghost herself. As she grows older and older, her dreams become more and more solid, until she becomes a ghost herself, and begins to realize that, she is not alone, and that she is loved. This is a powerful movie about grief, and the consequences that will follow. This is a great movie that I recommend to everyone who wants to see a good movie about grief. I think this movie will keep you thinking about the meaning of life, and will leave you with many questions. I highly recommend this movie to everyone. Rating: 8/10

This film can be seen as a review of the sixties, an illustration of how an important time in human history can seem to be passed with all of the trappings of wealth and pleasure, yet the struggles and sorrows of everyday life are evident and timeless. The film's title refers to a musical number from the Beatles, the song A Hard Day's Night by the Three Stooges, which they played on the radio. The movie was also inspired by the movie Wild Strawberries (1969). "Who came up with that?" asked one of the characters in the film. The entire point of the movie is the question posed, "who created the movie?" The song was created in the seventies by Phil Spector, a popular rock musician, in the form of a ballad for Rolling Stone Magazine. After the release of the album that was in reference to the movie, the song was performed by the band, but never appeared on the album. Perhaps they never saw that it was a hit. Regardless, I like this movie because of how it makes the point that the sixties were periods of triumph, but there was also a time when people lost faith in themselves. "Happiness is just a word, you know.that means nothing.nothing compares." It is a good movie for anyone, but I would recommend it as an introduction to the sixties, as it is educational as well as entertaining. As for the music, it is amazing how many people are making films about the sixties with the same cast, same equipment and set, and the same camera angles and locations, yet all the music is very different, and that is what makes it so amazing.

After my introduction to Norman Jewison, I was eager to see the movie. It was a truly thought-provoking and affecting tale of a broken family. Norman Jewison did a great job of making this film visually beautiful and compelling. But the real brilliance of this film is the insight to the character of John. He shows such compassion and kindness towards the children in the film, and is so good at playing a character we can relate to and feel sympathy for. I feel this is one of the best film-making experiences I've ever had. If you have a young child you should definitely give this a watch. And if you're a parent who likes to relate, give this film a shot!

I didn't know what to expect when I sat down to watch this movie. But I can definitely say that I have never, ever, been so affected by a movie before. This movie really took me by surprise! The acting is flawless and the story is very simple, yet still powerful. It's definitely something you don't want to miss. It's a must-see! I can't say enough about how amazing this movie is. If you are ever in the mood for a light, entertaining movie to take your mind off of life for a little while, watch this movie! You won't be disappointed!

Since the movie was advertised as "emotional" and made for children, I decided to rent it and watch it. I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was for the kids. This is an extremely realistic movie, so there are no fancy special effects or scenes that have to be called "special effects". The screenplay and acting were great. I thought the movie would just be for children to see a simple story of three kids in the middle of nowhere who are forced to survive by playing games and watching their dog, but instead it was very well done for both adults and kids. I liked that this movie did not have any language or inappropriate things. It kept it pure to what is really happening to these three kids. The acting was excellent. I also like that this movie does not over dramatize and that's what keeps it real. Although the movie is very realistic, it is still a movie for children. All the acting and storyline is very realistic and realistic enough that it is a movie for children as well. The actors were also good. Not because the actors were great, but because they were good. This is one of the few movies I liked and I will watch it a lot. It is very well done for children and adults.

*SPOILERS* You know how it goes. It's a holiday weekend and the family comes to your house to watch the movies and all you have is a DVD player. So, you have a DVD player in your living room and nothing else? Well, don't be afraid, this is the real deal. You have a DVD player that has no sound capabilities. At this time you are also at a loss to find any titles in the entire disc. It's all about two and a half hours of your life that you could never get back. Yes, there is a lot of nudity and sex in this movie but in the beginning of the movie the children are playing in the backyard. There is no street. In fact there is no street at all. It was an old gravel driveway and there is no one that you can see there. The movie shows you a bunch of homes with no street. If there is any great section of a movie I like, I have to say the first 10 minutes of a movie is usually the best. In this movie there are many scenes that are totally cold, and I don't mean it as a bad thing. These are the moments when you realize it is a movie. It is not a documentary on a street corner. I really liked this movie because it made me realize just how fast a video can get.

I have always been a fan of the film. It has been haunting me ever since I saw it first. It has always had an effect on me. Since then I have been trying to track down every single print of the film. I have seen the video as well and it is a masterpiece. I now have the soundtrack CD to the movie as well. I will be buying it soon. I really do think that this is one of the best films I have ever seen. I was simply stunned by the imagery in this film. This is an absolutely brilliant film and one of the best I have ever seen. The whole movie was just incredible. I absolutely loved the editing, the cinematography, and the themes of the film. I loved this film from start to finish. It was like a dream come true for me. I am amazed by the fact that this film is still being made and is still going to be released. I just hope it gets released on DVD so that it can be enjoyed by many more people.

This was my first time watching this, and I'm impressed by the way it's depicted. Well done to everyone involved and hope to see more films from this director.

I was very much disappointed when I heard of this film being put to a limited release in the United States, the distributor wouldn't even tell me if they were going to play it in New York, the numbers for it were amazing but it was suppose to go to the UK and a couple of the Irish press have already brought it out on DVD and we have had a small handful of orders from the UK, and these went to the best of my knowledge, and they are all selling very well so far. So I was disappointed, not because I wasn't expecting something good, I was expecting something different, something I haven't seen before. And so far I have been very disappointed, there are some interesting looking shots, but even the raw footage taken by a cameraman is a bit hard to enjoy, to be honest, it is very dark, the camera is always moving, there are many shots where they focus on a small area of nothing and so you are never sure whether you are seeing a glimpse of a person or a silhouette, which makes the film hard to watch. What I liked about the film was that it was different, I loved the different kind of shots, the long shots, the one on one shots, the surreal shots and the slow motion. But even these had the problem of being too long, I have seen the other movies about Joe Turner and the great talent he has, but even though I wasn't expecting something groundbreaking I felt that the length was wrong for a film like this, there should be some more incidental scenes added in and the editing needs to be more choppy, the score is very good and the acting is above average, but still the performances from the actors don't put them into the top class level they deserve, the boy who plays Joe Turner looks like he wants to commit suicide and I am not saying that is right, but he is a bit difficult to watch sometimes. The story is almost unwatchable at times and it is so bad it is funny, I know the reason for the prologue, it is simply to give you the idea of the character, but it is completely out of place and I think the director could have picked another story to put in. There are some parts where the director does get the camera going and shows the person's face, it is hard to watch and I hate films like this where the camera is not used to its maximum potential. The opening is very good and I have never really seen this kind of style of editing before, it is almost like it is dragging, but the film is not good, I think it is an interesting look into the man that lives in that house in the rain, it is a good look into what life was like in that house in that town, but the writing is not good, it seems like a writer trying to cover their tracks, and with the way the film is edited I could not really take a good look at it, the acting is great, I love the performance from Daniel Craig, I don't know what was it about the character of Joe that attracted him to this role, he is a great actor and he played the character well, but I think he was a bit of a stand out from the others and I do like him, the rest of the cast are really good too, and everyone seemed to get involved with the film, not that the characters are all great, but that is how the director wanted it to be. The ending is also very bad, it is really very sad, I was not expecting that and I don't really like this kind of ending, so I was disappointed, I think it could have been a lot better if the director had a more epic style and they took a more elaborate approach to the film. Overall I would say that this is a film that will not be remembered and I will be very disappointed if it is played in the US and even if it is shown on TV. It is not a bad film, I am sure that there is a lot of people who will love it

Last month my brother and I watched this film with no expectations. I was looking forward to watching it because I knew the trailer made me feel good. As a movie lover I know the deep love that is involved in this film. I really loved the dark cinematography and the scene where the scene was shown on the wall. The scene where the characters were singing the song. It was really interesting and powerful. I could feel myself start to feel the deep feelings that was meant to be shown in the film. This movie really touched my heart. I recommend everyone to watch this film, especially for teenagers who don't have good family relationships.

This film is one of the best ever made. The story, the acting, the music, the music, the drama, the screenplay, the acting. It just rolls from start to finish and then somehow, you find yourself on the edge of your seat, going to bed after each and every minute of it. The few parts which can be called slow are always followed by a scene which sets up a whole new scene, which the viewer must then find out why the first scene was that way. It's not easy to do this and be all the time watching something. The reason I gave this movie an 8 is because there are two things which can be easily overlooked: I couldn't get out of bed after a couple of hours, and the dialogue between a psychopath and his victim is so well put together that I will never get bored of it. Go see it, and enjoy!

I first started hearing about this movie a year ago. I did not want to see it and finally I dozed off and went to sleep. But I woke up the next morning to the title and this movie. I checked IMDb and I couldn't find the rating. I went and looked at other reviews and was surprised. I thought I would check the rating on IMDb. What a surprise, it was 8.2! No one saw the movie, this is an important movie. This movie talks about the inner struggle. I didn't really have a feeling of being something really bad after I saw the movie. It is a very good movie. The actors are very good and the story is so good. I think everyone should see this movie. The message is pretty deep and I believe everyone should have this movie. I think everyone should watch this movie. It's a very good movie and I think everyone should see this movie.

I am a man about 40 years old and lived in Berlin for many years, and if this movie could be described as an autobiography about Berlin in the 80's I would like to know that it is not a tragedy. I watched this movie without having any expectations and I was completely entertained. The movie is a unique combination of art and realism in all its form. The movie shows the realistic face of Berlin in the 1980's. The portrayal of the emotions and the feelings of the people living in Berlin in the 80's is perfect, especially the fact that the heroes of the movie are really old and not the ordinary people who made it into the successful film industries. The movie is a reminder that not everything in life is happy, there is a side to the world that is cruel, but there is also a side to life that is not cruel, that is the good side of it. The movie is a legend in the world of cinema, and it has no way to get better. The name of the movie is inspired by a famous video from the 80's, which is a comic that contains mostly funny scenes of Berlin, which gave the movie a comic expression. Although I am a man, I felt an emotional connection with the heroes of the movie, and I also enjoyed the performances of the cast, which were very good. The movie is unique in its style and it is a perfect treat for the viewer. The movie deserves a score of 8 or higher, and this movie is certainly one of the greatest movies of all times.

OK, so the film is rated PG, but, so what? The film is terrific. From the opening scenes to the ending scene, you can see how effective and ambitious the director is. The amazing performance of Sasha Barashev, who I am a huge fan of, as the young kid (Noah Algebic) is just brilliant. The scenes of Noah struggling with his sexual urges and his lack of confidence are perfect. The climax with the final review is probably the most well filmed scene. It is worth seeing this film to see how it was made. It is funny, disturbing and surprising.

The movie itself was nothing like what i had imagined when i first saw the trailer and the poster. The main reason is that it was a lot more mature than i thought it would be. The characters were well developed and unlike in "Saving Private Ryan" or "Full Metal Jacket", they were not so easily disposed of. The characters who were in the movie didn't have a large part in the film, but the few scenes were very well done. I enjoyed the overall story, the acting, the action, the plot, the direction, the mood, the photography, the sound, and a lot more. Not too long but very engaging. This movie is better than "Saving Private Ryan" and "Full Metal Jacket".

The acting, the story, the direction, the performances were all superb. I found it a delightful time. You may be offended by this. That's OK, you're offended by everything else. Enjoy.

At first, the story seems to be a crazy one, where an extremely brilliant engineer who uses Google Glass discovers that the world is actually made of color. But as the story unfolds, you start to realize that this is a very good film. A story that could very easily have been boring, but with the brilliant cast, directing and superb cinematography, I was really surprised at the film's quality. This is not a normal looking film, you get an impression that it could have been produced by someone who has studied to much at film school. The film is really fascinating, as every character shows their 'need' for colours. Every scene is a mesmerizing mix of color, and even though the director did not show the story, you are always told when something important is going to happen. The story is very slow at the beginning, but once you get to know each of the characters, it actually gets better. I thought that the pace was just right and I thought that the film was really well done. The characters are well developed, you can feel them all as different as different colours. The director did a great job, he did not sacrifice the message of the film, but he just kept it interesting. So the film is not for everyone, and if you want to know a good movie about the world and the way people see it, watch this one. It's not for everyone, but if you like fantastic films, this is the one to watch.

This is a movie that explores the possibility of a gay relationship between a teen and a teacher. There is very little plot that doesn't require the viewer to at least open up and think about gay relationships. The story, most of the acting, and everything about it is pretty much the same. This is an intriguing movie that I thought was terrifically well done.

Chloe Isaacs is an up and coming actress who was a rising star when the book she is writing is finished. Her director is the lead character's agent. This is the movie's prologue where she tells the audience about her experiences. The movie becomes a poem and does a good job of telling her story. Chloe Isaacs is a stunning actress and I think she is one of the best young actresses around today. She has an extremely gorgeous face. She has beautiful blue eyes and some really great long slender hair. She looks great for an adult actress and her performance is fantastic. Sam Rockwell is a bit of a secondary character in the movie but does an excellent job of portraying his character. I don't know if the screenwriter was trying to use Rockwell in the movie but he was good. The movie is dark and gloomy at times but I don't think it is too depressing. The music in the movie is good. It reminds me of the music used in I Can't Get No Satisfaction or THE SIXTH SENSE. I think the movie is a bit more coherent than the book and it is definitely a better film than the book. I recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in the way people lived at the turn of the century.
