An average movie

From the 70's until the end of the 90's, Brian De Palma was one of the most highly regarded directors but now he is pretty much forgotten and that's a pity. Indeed, I always had a weak spot for this director and even though this movie is quite obscure, I still wanted to check it out. Basically, it was the first movie De Palma made after his breakthrough with ‘Carrie’ and even though it was far... read more

The Fury

4 years, 7 months ago at Feb 4 4:02
A clear signpost for Brian De Palma’s transition away from the more experimental early half of his career and towards the more coherent latter half, The Fury still plays out a smorgasbord of ideas thrown against a wall and waiting to see what sticks. Pumped full of so many detours and tonal changes that it’ll spin you around just as violently as John Cassavetes during the final scene, The Fury... read more

"John Cassavetes näyttelee täydellistä nilkkiä. Juuri hän osaa tehdä sen niin vakavasti, että tuo traagiseen esiintymiinsä myös hienoista komiikkaa. Kirk Douglas juoksentelee uimahousuissa elokuvan alkumetreillä, pakenee armotonta liigaa. Hän on Jason Bournen prototyyppi, mutta paljon kovanahkaisempi kuin Matt Damon ja onnekseen tämä enimmäkseen tiukkaotteinen raina on myös aikalailla vertailukelvoton siihen elokuvasarjaan, ensinmainittu aliarvostettu, jälkimmäinen yliarvostettu."

“A clear signpost for Brian De Palma’s transition away from the more experimental early half of his career and towards the more coherent latter half, The Fury still plays out a smorgasbord of ideas thrown against a wall and waiting to see what sticks. Pumped full of so many detours and tonal changes that it’ll spin you around just as violently as John Cassavetes during the final scene, The Fury is an entertaining mess. But it’s never less than a mess.   De Palma’s prior film, Carrie, has its own moments of kitsch and twisted comedy, but the brutality and homerun of its ending smooth over any inconsistencies there, and that trick is not repeated here. The Fury is ostensibly about a pair of teenage psychics being studied and trained for weaponized use by a secret government organiz” read more

"2.9. John Cassavetes varastaa Kirk Douglasin pojan. Raivofaija haluaa lapsensa takaisin, koska pojan yliluonnolliset kyvyt voivat olla väärissä käsissä vaarallisia. Meno on viihdyttävää ja sopivan pöhköä."

"29/7/17 Brian De Palma's psychological thriller has Kirk Douglas searching for his kidnapped son who has telepathic powers, while using a young girl with similar skills to help. One of De Palma's lesser known films, it has some well-constructed set pieces and the director's usual visual flair but it does drag in places. The finale, however, is shocking."

"First viewing - Aug. 4th Thanks the documentary that was recently released about De Palma & all the press I've encountered related to it, I've been wanting to check out other films of his. The Fury is the only one on Netflix currently that I haven't seen, so I figured I'd give it a look. Overall the film is solidly entertaining with a decent cast. It's got some very funny moments mixed in among the drama, and the effects have mostly held up well (not too surprising given they're handled by Ri"
