Emperor Pu Yi: This isn't a school; it's a prison. A real prison.

He was the Lord of Ten Thousand Years, the absolute monarch of China. He was born to rule a world of ancient tradition. Nothing prepared him for our world of change. The story of the final Emperor of China.

As a series of beautifully ornate costumes, moody cinematography, exotic locations, and observation of shifting tastes – politically, culturally – in various eras, The Last Emperor is a grand statement. A movie in big emblazoned letters, a movie that rests in the truest sense of the term cinematic, but it’s a pity that there’s no good script to go along with all of the detailed craft and p... read more

The Last Emperor

“As a series of beautifully ornate costumes, moody cinematography, exotic locations, and observation of shifting tastes – politically, culturally – in various eras, The Last Emperor is a grand statement. A movie in big emblazoned letters, a movie that rests in the truest sense of the term cinematic, but it’s a pity that there’s no good script to go along with all of the detailed craft and pretty images on display. As an epic, it has more in common with the bloated likes of Gandhi than it does Lawrence of Arabia.

The story follows around a footnote of an emperor; he was crowned when he was two and abdicated the throne at seven, through the transition from dynasties to Communism, from feudalism to a revolution. But it never engages our emotions or provides a rooting interes” read more

My movie year 2014 (471 movies items)

"8.3. (Kirjasto-DVD) Hienon näköinen elokuva, joka ei meikäläiselle mitään varsinaista elämystä tarjonnut. Kiinan lähihistorian selvittely ja vanhojen traditioiden puiminen ovat toki kiinnostavaa antia ja lopun kontrasti keisarin seistessä edesmenneessä palatsissaan vekkuli. Mukava on myös filmin tapa esittää nimikkohenkilönsä, josta löytyy mustavalkoisuuden sijaan niin negatiivisiä (Mantsuria, valehtelu) kuin positiivisiakin (uudistukset) puolia. "

Best Picture - Winners and My Choices - 80s (10 movies items)

"WINNER: The Last Emperor OTHER NOMINEES: Broadcast News Fatal Attraction Hope and Glory Moonstruck MY CHOICE: Broadcast News It's an easy choice for me this year since I so intensely disliked so many of the nominees, although ultimately my choice is a magnificent film which I think I would have chosen over a good deal of fine films. But let's tackle the weak ones first. Of the three films I disliked, John Boorman's 'Hope and Glory' is the best. An unusual wartime comedy-drama in whic"
