Re: Last Seen Movie - The Latest Movie You Have Seen; ratings

Il viaggio / The Voyage (Vittorio De Sica, 1974) 3/10 De Sica's last film is set amongst the wealthy classes in Sicily during the turn of the century, is sumptuously shot on lovely Italian location but is absolute trite. A soap opera involving a seamstress (Sophia Loen) in love with a wealthy playbo...

La bella mugnaia / The Miller's Beautiful Wife (Mario Camerini, 1955) 6/10 Rather silly farce has a number of endearing qualities going in its favour - handsome production values, a vivid sense of time and place set during 17th century Naples (occupied then by Spain) amongst the peasant lot, the fra...

Le mura di Malapaga / Au-delà des grilles / The Walls of Malapaga (René Clément, 1949) 10/10 Italian-French co-production, which won an Oscar, is one of the great doomed romances but sadly forgotten today. The two films that similarly won Oscars in the foreign film category right before and after th...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2019

It’s altogether unclear what he’s trying to say. I thought Phillips, through the film, said a whole lot about a number of serious issues plaguing not only the United States but also many other parts of the world. And if by chance Phillips had a totally different point of view and the film was just ...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2019

Not even once did I feel, while watching "Joker", that it was a comic book film. It was only when Bruce Wayne, the kid, pops up that I was brought back to the "reality" of the connection which joined this sad man to the Batman franchise. Luckily those bits weren't terribly intrus...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2019

I've not been a big fan of any of the comic book films (except Black Panther) that we have been inundated with these last 10-15 years or so. However, I'm happy to be called a fanboy of "Joker". I think it's a brilliant and important film about mental illness and extremely relevant to what'...

Joker (Todd Phillips, 2019) 10/10 The first thing that hits you squarely in the eye is the city itself. Gotham City by way of New York City. It is not the city of Woody Allen but has the foul stench, squalor and urban chaos of Martin Scorsese's vision of hell in his classic "Taxi Driver". ...

HarryGoldfarb thank you for the update about Marco. I was worried and wondering if all was well with him. I also agree with what you wrote. Silencing any voice is never a good thing.
