Maddeningly Good!


I loved, loved, loved, loved, loved this movie, a film like no other with shining performances and visual imagery, sparkling dialogue, it's just so brilliant I could kill myself. I've never seen a film to match this in originality and tone since and I never tire of watching it due to its abundance of quirky details. Example: Bill Muray's Budweiser swimming trunks, the excellent soundtrack full of 60s gems, Max's stage adaptation of Serpico, replete with Dirk in Nun's habit, Dirk and co's crazy costumes when attacking Max, Blume drinking minibar rum and Diet Coke and smoking cigarettes in the hospital elevator, the crazy looking extra kid in the pool at Blume birthday party, and with sparklers in end scene. So great! You can really see the Anderson/Wilson talent developing and tightening since Bottle Rocket into a compelling and thoroughly original pespective. So Fresh! I'm also awaiting Jason Schwartzman's next project with eager anticipation. What a find!

The Rose - movie DVD cover picture
After many years, still powerful...


This film brings back memories, and I'm glad the DVD finally came out, though there are no extras. Bette, in her film debut, was brilliant and deserved every award she got. Often compared to Janis Joplin, I think the screenplay of Bill Kerby & Bo Goldman gave Midler a bit more personality and personal angst. Midler handled it all like a seasoned pro. A truly excellent performance. Her concert scenes were good, too. Frederic Forrest was nominated for an Oscar, and he was quite fine (he was also in "Norma Rae" with Sally Field, who won the Oscar over Midler in '79). But it was Alan Bates as the oily, manipulative agent (baby-sitter?) who truly deserved recognition. The Oscars also recognized the film for its Sound and brilliant Editing. Sorely missing from the nominations were the Adapted Score and the wonderful title Song, written by Amanda McBroom. This is a powerful and entertaining film, with fine acting and great direction by Mark Rydell, loaded with humor, pathos and sadness, and all brought to life by the remarkable Bette Midler.It's worth watching again. Also, watch for David Keith (her personal bodyguard/masseur, later on), who later made such a strong impression in "An Officer and a Gentleman".

Black Knight - movie DVD cover picture
IF YOU WANT FUNNY GO SEE THIS


(...) This was seriously the worst movie of the month. But you know what! I loved it. Because it was too stupid to be stupid, too bad to be bad. Martin Lawrence did a terrific job. The plot involves one revolting group fighting against the ruling King who was trying to bond with another Lord by marriage to fight in return. The "brave" and "unconventional" knight from an outerworld, the Black Knight, Martin Lawrence, comes in, helps the revolting people and breaks the marriage. The jokes as you can imagine were all about ancient people dancing hip-hop, and swordsman fighting on battlefield with football skills. Don't see the movie if you are a serious person, it's really just all total BS.

The Bridge on the River Kwai - movie DVD cover picture
Span The Bridge


1957's Bridge On The River Kwai is a stirring war film that is based on a novel that itself was inspired by real life events. The movie stars William Holden and Alec Guinness as an American commander, Major Shears, and an English officer, Colonel Nicholson, respectively who are captives in a Japanese prisoner of war camp. The camp is run by the heartless and maniacal Colonel Saito (Sessue Hayakawa) and he has been put in charge of constructing a railroad bridge over the river that will be extremely important to the Japanese war effort. Saito and Nicholson are at constant odds over the British captives role in helping build the bridge. Nicholson does not want to aid his enemies in such an important task and Saito uses abusive and sadistic means of punishment to try and break Nicholson, but due to Nicholson's high honor, he never gives in. Eventually the men reach a compromise and Nicholson throws his men into task of building the bridge with a fervent and obsessive nature. A parallel story line concerns Major Shears who escapes from the camp, makes an inspired trek through the dangerous jungle and finds his way back to a base in the South Pacific. He provides the commanders with the information about the bridge, but his true motives are selfish as he wants to go home. He is forced into volunteering to guide a British troop back into the jungle to the prisoner's camp to destroy the bridge. Along on this mission is the leader Major Warden (Jack Hawkins) who is way too gung ho about it for Shears' liking. The eventual intertwining of the two stories reaches a brilliant and rousing climax. Director David Lean uses the jungle scenery of Sri Lanka to beautiful perfection to recreate the images of World War II. He never resorts to gratuitous violence or mayhem , but expertly crafts a story about the psychological effects war has on three men who at first seem quite different, but in the end seem very much the same. The film was a rousing success and dominated the 1957 Academy Awards winning a total seven including Best Picture, Mr. Lean's first Best Director Award and a truly deserving Best Actor Oscar for Sir Alec Guinness.
