A good movie

I wasn't sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Denzel Washington and Meryl Streep and since Jonathan Demme is a fine director, I thought I should give it a try. 10 years after ‘Philadelphia’, Washington and Demme were working together and even though I didn’t care much about ‘Philadelphia’, I actually liked this thriller a lot. Unfortunately, I haven't seen... read more

Not a direct remake of the sweaty, paranoid original by John Frankenheimer, but another adaptation of the source material, this version of The Manchurian Candidate still can’t seem to emerge from the omnipresent shadow of the 1962 film. Not entirely fair as this version makes numerous changes (some that pay off, many that don’t) to the narrative and truly tries valiantly to be its own. The pro... read more

Description: When his army unit was ambushed during the first Gulf War, Sergeant Raymond Shaw saved his fellow soldiers just as his commanding officer, then-Captain Ben Marco, was knocked unconscious. Brokering the incident for political capital, Shaw eventually becomes a vice-presidential nominee, while Marco is haunted by dreams of what happened -- or didn't happen -- in Kuwait. As Marco (now a Major) investigates, the story begins to unravel, to the point where he questions if it happened at all. Is it possible the entire unit was kidnapped and brainwashed to believe Shaw is a war hero as part of a plot to seize the White House? Some very ... (more)

The Manchurian Candidate

“Not a direct remake of the sweaty, paranoid original by John Frankenheimer, but another adaptation of the source material, this version of The Manchurian Candidate still can’t seem to emerge from the omnipresent shadow of the 1962 film. Not entirely fair as this version makes numerous changes (some that pay off, many that don’t) to the narrative and truly tries valiantly to be its own. The problem is, the changes more often than not render the story as a mere political thriller that becomes ephemeral while the other lasts for its political ramifications, trenchant satire and dark humor, or its hothouse of escalating paranoia.   Jonathan Demme’s reworking of the material is far too self-serious for much of the time and it throws the material off balance. It plays all of its science” read more
