A good movie

1 week, 4 days ago at Jan 25 14:42
I have noticed that this movie has a rather lame reputation but, I have to admit it, I have actually a weak spot for the damned thing. In fact, I even saw it in the movie theater when it was released but I should probably re-watch it at some point to make sure it was indeed any good.

A good movie

“I have noticed that this movie has a rather lame reputation but, I have to admit it, I have actually a weak spot for the damned thing. In fact, I even saw it in the movie theater when it was released but I should probably re-watch it at some point to make sure it was indeed any good. Anyway, the main reason I mostly enjoyed this flick was probably the circumstances during which I saw this movie. Indeed, basically, I went there with my best friend at the time (how I managed to convince him to watch such an obscure feature is beyond me…) and we had smoked a sizable joint just before. As a result, already during the commercials before the actual movie, we already laughing our ass off so you might argue that we shouldn’t have been able to follow the damned thing but that would be actually ” read more

100 Essential Female Film Performances (99 movies items)

"Kate Winslet Campion’s film about the deprogramming of Ruth (Winslet), a young Australian girl who returns home to her completely freaked-out family after defecting to a cultish Guru’s ashram in India is, at turns, an overly-ambitious mess, an already badly-dated tale of modern spirituality and yearning, and a kaleidoscopic-shot cascade of strong Campion-style feminist imagery; yet throughout the misguided film, Winslet’s compelling performance holds everything together like superglue.

"In this movie, Harvey Keitel's character first gets exposed to a full frontal nudity by a super-sexy Kate Winslet & then, he gets to sleep with her..... Lord, I so wish I became an actor.... And why I don't have this movie listed at #1, I honestly couldn't tell ya..... Lemme just say that when I first saw that particular scene, I can promise you, the words that I came outta my mouth definitely were not Holy Smoke. Holy sh#t was more like it. Then I just spent the next thirty minutes touching &"

"Watched: 23.10 Mielenkiintoisen vaikuttavan ensimmäisen puoliskon jälkeen, elokuva alkaa junnaamaan paikallaan eikä tarina jaksa kiinnostaa edes paskan vertaa. Ei kuitenkaan rimanalitus, mutta läheltä hipoo. "
