Hospital Life as it Was


This film was breathtaking. I really don't know how to describe it. The hospital took me back to when I was in one. It made me feel sad at the end. The beginning was excellent. YOu got drawn right into the film at the start, and never left until many minutes after it ended. It makes me glad that hospitals aren't the same anymore. The filming was amazing for the time, and the music fit the moods. Over all this is one of the grandest films I have ever seen. I don't recommend it to just anyone. Children should not watch this, and I wonder about people who was just in a psychiatric hospital. It might trigger a flashback.

What can I say?


I have seen it 24 times and still love it! Be sure to turn up that home theater surround system when the landing of Air Force One is aborted by the terrorists, easily accessible off of DVD by jumping to the scene. The sound of the take off of AFO is incredible and was one of the hardest scenes to make according to Wolfgang.

Simply A Reply


I'd just like to stand up for one of the best arrangement of songs in a show. I disagree with the last response given. And to that I'd like to say, if you don't want a musical review... don't buy this. That's what you're getting here: Songs, taken out of the given circumstances of a show, and put into an order deemed appropriate. It's made very clear that there isn't a strong plot line... hense it being a "Musical Review." What plot line is there is obviously there to tie the songs together. If you can't appreciate it for what it is, don't bash it for what it isn't.

JOLIE CAN DO NO WRONG!


To watch "Girl Interrupted" is to watch Angelina Jolie come out of her shell and act circles around such actresses that have garnered acclaim in the past decade. Jolie shines above Nicole Kidman, Meryl Streep, Kim Basinger, Hilary Swank, Mena Suvari, Annete Bening, Thora Birch, and yes of course, Winona Ryder. Jolie's performance will move you, draw you in, and leave you gasping for air.

Doctor Zhivago (Two-Disc Special Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Yuri Zhivago, The Poetic Russian Soul


DOCTOR ZHIVAGO is my all time favorite film to watch. I don't know exactly why, because I don't think it's the very best film that's ever been made, but I do get totally involved with the characters in DOCTOR ZHIVAGO and character involvement is, I think, the most important ingredient in either the writing of novels or the making of films.
DOCTOR ZHIVAGO isn't a film "about" the Russian Revolution, although it is set against the backdrop of the revolution and the decisions and fate of the film's characters are dependent, to a large degree on the war that's raging around them. Instead, DOCTOR ZHIVAGO is a film that explores the poetic Russian soul through an intimate look at one very enigmatic and charismatic man, Yuri Zhivago (Omar Sharif), part-time (his part-time status is imposed by the constraints of the revolution) physician, specializing in family practice, and part-time love poet.
Yuri Zhivago is the ultimate idealist and the ultimate romantic. As such, he can't stand either the Tsarist regime or the cruelty of the Bolsheviks and, it's just as well, because the Bolshevik's can't stand him, either, save for his own half-brother, skillfully played by Alec Guinness.
Yuri Zhivago is a man who was born in Siberia, in that wild, untamed and beautiful land beyond the Urals. After the death of his mother, a musical artist, herself, the young Yuri goes to Moscow to live with his beloved aunt and uncle and their pretty little daughter, Tonya (Geraldine Chaplin). Yuri falls in love with Tonya almost immediately, and, of course, there's no doubt that the two will marry. Although theirs seems to be the perfect union, trouble is brewing in the form of the revolution and a woman who is both as enigmatic and charismatic as is Yuri, a dressmaker's daughter, Lara (Julie Christie).
Yuri leaves Moscow, a privileged member of the upper class, to minister to the wounded and, when he returns, he finds the Bolsheviks in charge and his once lavish home partitioned off so that many families can live there. Yuri, his wife Tonya, their son, Sasha, and Tonya's father are reduced to living in only a few cold and barren rooms with little to eat. When Yuri decides that things must change, he takes his brother's suggestion and, with his family, leaves Moscow for their country home in the Urals. There, life is not as luxurious as it once was, but at least it is peaceful and free from harassment.
It is not free from Lara, however, a woman who was once a nurse and with whom Yuri spent long, though chaste, hours. Now, however, he finds he cannot deny his love for the beautiful Lara, and, even in the land beyond the Urals, far away from Moscow, problems develop as Yuri is forced to choose between Tonya and Lara. As is often the case in real life, however, fate makes his decision for him.
I think Omar Sharif was the perfect choice to play Yuri Zhivago. In the 60s, he was obviously as charismatic and as dreamily poetic as Yuri Zhivago is supposed to be. For me, in this film, Sharif was the very embodiment of the poetic Russian soul.
Although I've heard criticism of Julie Christie's portrayal of Lara, I think she played her role perfectly. She definitely looked like a woman three men would be totally in love with and mesmerized by. Although her husband, Pasha Antipov (Tom Courtney) leaves her to devote himself more fully to the revolution, when he finds the revolution needs him no longer, he sets out for Lara's. Komarovsky (Rod Steiger), as a wealthy, world-weary aristocrat, never loses his fascination with Lara, as well, and, as his actions near the film's closing moments show, he just might love her more selflessly than does Zhivago, who, of course, loves her the most passionately.
I don't think anyone who's seen DOCTOR ZHIVAGO will forget its stunning cinematography: the forests, the Urals in the distance, the fields of daffodils waving in the wind or the dacha encrusted in ice. No matter what you think of this film, I believe you'd have to agree that it's beautifully filmed. And another unforgettable thing is Marice Jarre's beautiful score, which fits the film perfectly.
DOCTOR ZHIVAGO is not the best film ever made, but it is a beautiful and involving one and one that any lover of romances should definitely see. It is most definitely a five star treat.

Queer as Folk - The Complete First Season (Showtime) - movie DVD cover picture
May be Shocking but well worth the effort


I have to admit, I love the series. I just love gay men. It is, at times, corny and a little simplified, but...it is a SOAP OPERA! Similar to the YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS and other daytime American soaps, it is a show filled with pretty gay boys and lots of lust and sex thrown in. Sometimes there is some great dialogue and other times not. But, seriously folks, it is fun, entertaining, and filled with "eye candy" for an open minded straight and/or gay audience to enjoy. I bought it because it is breaking the mold of "straight" entertainment that gives you a different perceptive on life in our ever-changing world. This is the time to be light-hearted and open-minded. So, stop hesitating and just BUY IT!

Follows the book...


I enjoyed watching this movie because it followed the book well. The actors also did a pretty good job. I also appreciated how most of the actors could say D'Artagnan's name right; not like others I've seen. The comedy was well played. I enjoyed the "duel on ice". I also enjoyed " The Three Musketeers".
The only reason, I knew it went by the book, is because I read the book around Christmas time, in 1998,and I have a good memory, so I remembered almost everything that happened.

After all this time, to see this performance is a treat. I can see why it was not released back in the 70's. I saw Cat Stevens in concert many times and he was a perfectionist. This is not perfect but still a great show!!
