Please do not read into what I did not say. I simply responded to the previous comment. Of course everyone should be able to make up her/his own mind. I did, which seems to be at the root of this discussion. Apparently you consider this film to be a work of art, but I don't know how you define your terms : a film, by definition, is a work of art, or this film is outstanding?
Are you implying, Artemis, that this work of art, simply because you didn't like it personally, should not be widely distributed in theaters so that people can make up their own minds about it? Scary.
Nice, but you forgot Nico.
Isn't it the quality of the content of the film, not the previous works of its director nor the hoopla surrounding its premier, which should determine how broadly or whether the film is released? As you participate in an annual review of Academy Award contenders -- do you not? -- you may have commented on films whose promotion you felt to be greater than the stuff they were flogging. Look at the films that were not awarded at Cannes.
you don't understand how a major American director's new film, which took the top prize at the world's premier film festival, found a distributor?
Sorry, I don't understand how he found a distributor for this film which is all over the place and nowhere. How can you speak of it in reference to Kubrick's " 2001 : a space odyssey" -- I guess that's your reference --which holds together from beginning to end? For the shallow, vacuous role of Sean Penn, it might as well have been played by X. And what about the dinosaurs, huh? Without a doubt the shots of natural phenomena are exceptional, but Yann Arthus-Bertrand's been there, done that. I nearly fell asleep, whereas others in my local cinema simply walked out.
Sadly, I haven't seen it.
Nothing to say about "Second-Hand Hearts"?
SO happy someone labeled the movie as what it is, schlock.
So there's absolutely NOTHING in the movie that you liked? What about the credits? Were they in the correct font?
The Beaver does not speak with an Australian accent, he speaks with a Cockney accent. Mel Gibson worked with Ray Winstone in Edge of Darkness and adopted his Cockney accent for the Beaver.
Your bias shows, your last comment ... In some ways, the spectacle of a toxically miserable Mel might be most satisfying for those who categorically refuse to see the movie.
Writers, Journalists and Film Review writers, or is it just Mel haters, who seem to have forgotten what it is to be human. They spew awful things when rational and sober.
I feel so bad for anyone involved in this movie (w/ the exception of BlowMe asshole Mel)
This isn't a film by and for New Yorkers, a series of love letters from hometowners and transplants; it's a shallow portrait sketched by casual admirers, outsiders looking in through clichÃ©-tinted lenses.Surely it is Same review of Paris Je t'aime.

This was indeed a great review to read. I have been reading review after review to see how I would like the movie. At first I did go around and ask my co-workers at DISH about "Little Fockers" and to my surprise no one has seen it (small crowd I'm around). I have wanted to order the movie on PPV in HD but was unsure. I think instead of reading all the reviews that I have read I'm just going to give it my own opinion and actually watch it. I hope it really is good.
18. One must distinguish between naïve and deliberate Camp. Pure Camp is always naive. Camp which knows itself to be Camp ("camping") is usually less satisfying.
You can't fault Snyder for not being campy enough due to a lack of self-awareness. It's like faulting water for being wet. Camp is not a method of appreciating an artist's intention, and probably the best example of why intentionality doesn't authoritatively dominate perception (here because its opposite enhances the appreciation).
What an amazing tale, for having catalogued countless official Soviet art books -- with the specific odor of that glossy paper -- at the Harvard Fine Arts' Library which was the depository for the exchange program of the 1970's. And so well written, of course.
The segment with the Monmouth County museum curator was a lampoon. They were all in on the joke, she wasn't "humiliating herself".
This young guy is definitely talented and he's only 21!!!
I was actually surprised to see that his next movie is on a crowdfunding website touscoprod.ca in order to find money to produce it !
So I joined this opportunity to help this talented director, and I really hope that he'll get more recognition with Laurence Anyways. Here is the link : http://www.touscoprod.com/ca/pages/projet/fiche.php?s_id=2
And also an interview he did in french about it (english subs in comments) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHFziRhHFJs
Too bad. I agree that a real documentary about him would be more interesting than this sounds.
