Re: “The Documentary Film As Pharmaceuticals Infomercial

The most salient point in the article is this. Eric Merola let down his profession by using 'one eyed' journalism. He didn't strive for balance by interviewing any professional who may have had an alternative view on Burzynzki's antineoplastons. he has only presented the clinics views and did not even mention that NO clinic in the world has been able to replicate the 'results' - no phase III's and NO approvals anywhere in the world. Its eady to see why Merola concentrated on one side. He was effectively Dr Buzynski's Producer, Publicist and Sales Manager under the guise of 'impartial filmmaker'. This production answers absolutely none of the questions the scientific worlds waits to be answered.

Re: “The Hunt for Bin Laden: Zero Dark Thirty

Im not sure if l'm interested in seeing another violent 'M'....but l think, what the world need, now, more than anything, is love, peace and happiness...the world seem so 'bloody' at the moment and soo miscourteous 2 one another, on the marble. We should also be more neighborly toward each other and help each other out. thx. peace :) Jobs, Hunger, lnformation, poor, racism, respect...God provides for all.

Re: “Crime Is A Form Of Capitalism (Get It? Get It?): Killing Them Softly

Clearly, Dominik meant the film to be a slam against capitalism, our national excuses for exploitation should remain under constant assault and suspicion, and I think the film was sustained, simple, and a direct hit, the kind of shot that needs to be taken, as such, especially in a gangster film where gut shots are the best ones. Blows against an empire are one of the only ways to make a difference - persistence pays dividends - and this is clearly Andrew Dominik's intention, which he has also stated in interviews.

Re: “Crime Is A Form Of Capitalism (Get It? Get It?): Killing Them Softly

Clearly, the reviewer didn't fully understand Andrew Dominik's intention and seems to only be trying to skewer this film. Too bad because the film is as beautiful and heartfelt as Dominik's Jesse James film was. As a jumping-off point, the title of this article should have been "Capitalism is a form of crime" and not the far-too-obvious and shallow "Crime is a form of capitalism" that the reviewer subtitled as Get it?, so snarkily. Vadim Rizov didn't understand this film or the magnificent and elegiacal Jesse James film. This is an all-too-common problem with reviewers who become too bitter and ingrown from too much critique and not enough creation.

Re: “The Romcom Behind Psycho: Hitchcock

l finally saw the move yesterday, on West 42 Street; where the phantom of horrors are still historically evident. WOW! Awesome! If you grew up watching Alfred Hitchcock movies and you were pasted to your seat, as l was...maybe it would be even, more, appreciated to witness the idiosyncraties of the ambitious Hitchcocks and their production crews and back office shenanigans. Did the story give credence to the adage "for every sucessful man there's a strong women", however, here, may l write, or, "for every sucessful woman, there's, a psychopathic man....LOL..No...But, The movie may had revealed some underlining abnormalities of resentment and anger that Mr. Hitchcock (Hitch) had towards his wife or something the wife thought he had towards her (She was once his boss), that laid shelterend in his subconscience but was set to detonate at any given moment. l wonder, "What would the analysis of the late Sigmund Freund or Carl Jung, be of Hitch's abnormal enthusiastic zeal for killing and murder (which was revealed during the last scene segment) when like a conductor directing his orchestra, Hitch (Who stood out side peeping into the movie audience) he then simultaneously and surreptitiously made striking motions w his hands synchronizing along w the horrendous screams of the audience and the striking suspensed background music... during the shower scene, as the innocent young lady was being repeatingly stabbed with a large sharp knife by her crazed and inconspicuous host. l wonder Y Mr. Hitch choose to have the villian made up in Black Face'? :) And Y the make up crew didn't do a better, mirror, image of the late Alfred Hitchcock of Mr. Hopkin's face and neck, since, Mr. Hitchcock's face and neck were just as much his brand and trade mark as his movies. A.H. stood alone in alot of ways...l dont think Hitch would had liked the way his character looked, and l even doubt if he would have allowed such personal entries, but, l thought the performance and everthing else was superb, esp. Tony Perkins and Alma characters. I also wonder how Alfred Hitchcock wrould had directed his own bio. Cuut! ltss a Wrraap! thx, peace. :)

Re: “The Romcom Behind Psycho: Hitchcock

lve always been in 'awe' of Mr. Hitchcock's work and his introduction to the power of film and fright and his use of classical actors and conservatism in black and white. l hope to see this movie about a man who, not enough has been written about, but who, gave so much to the young, restless and wise viewer i.e. The Birds. Peace :)
