5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most important plays ever filmed to perfection by Mamet as director., 24 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Oleanna (DVD)
One of the most important plays (filmed) of the 20thC. No one can view it without having a strong opinion - indeed, I've discussed this at great length with friends, colleagues and students after seeing it on stage and Mamet's own direction of it on film. The DVD cover has nothing to do with the film's narrative -- the story between a self-satisfied university professor on the cusp of promotion and a confused, angry student is dynamically acted, and bears no relation to the sexual frisson of the DVD cover image. Watch it, and "be hazed".

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny, deep and respectful to the issues of life at the height of the Cold War, 25 Nov. 2014

This review is from: Matinee [DVD] [1993] (DVD)
An astonishing film in so many ways. For those who lived through the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 or remember the chill of the Cold war and undercurrent of nuclear one-upmanship, this will hit home on an emotional level, and I know it's brought tears to the eyes of those who've watched it and remembered the stomach-churning nervousness of their youth. But mostly it's very funny, with evenly-paced writing, some great set pieces, and memorable lines (e.g. shlock Hollywood producer murmuring about new nuclear-mutation B-film title: "Hmm...croc, no...woman..er, girl...gal...alligator..."Galligator!"). Fear, romance, sex, adolescence, innocence, nuclear war, military life vs civvies, right- vs left-wing politics, socialism and how Hollywood both fed and relieved the anxieties of a nation, if only temporarily. Perfect cast. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Visualizing God's love for his children - the most accurate guide to date, 25 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with Vol. 1, this is a wonderful aid to help with visualizing God's love for his children. It is full of witty, memorable drawings, contextualized commentary, and - above all - an honest approach to what's in the Bible. Yes, honest, even though some readers will balk at the fact that this time, the cherry-picking truck has not focussed on just the sweetest, shiniest fruits in the biblical tree, but graphically shown what is really behind God (or the authorial creators of God) and his agenda. One of the best dinner-party books to leave on the coffee table.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey: it's in your Bible, and now we have a study aid to assist with visualising God's behavior, 25 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If religious people cannot be honest about their holy books (and, subsequently, the complete lack of evidence behind their belief-system), then at least we have Horus to set the record straight. Gentle humor is the best way to disarm every reader, opening up him or her to a more truthful approach to what the Christian Bible really is. But hey, don't take my word for it: just read the entire Bible from cover to cover...slowly...and think about the imagery it purposefully evokes to keep you in your place. For those who cannot envisage the scenes of genocide, murder, deception and general mayhem, Horus's book will help you arrive at a better understanding of your Bible. Pleasant dreams.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 26 Aug. 2013

As with many inexpensive coffee machines, the placement of the jug must be precise for the stewed grinds to filter efficiently, preventing overflow. There is no auto-off sensor to turn off the hot plate, should you leave it on, so I use it in a fairly central place in the kitchen to prevent forgetting about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, but on hardwood floors, it picks up an amazing amount, 26 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The filter is full every time Freetime finishes its job. This is even after I've done a quick sweep, so it's obviously finding more than I realise.

It also works on flat-pile carpet tiles.

Be sure to keep cables off of floors, and then enjoy the simple pleasure of the mindless vacuuming device going about its business!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect in every way, 19 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Russell pulls out all the stops in getting across religious, political and moral corruption in 17thC French society, and yet is entirely focused on the narrative being uninterrupted, clear and profound. Yes, there are scenes of nuns having orgies and brutal torture, but anything less would have diluted inexorable swell of treachery and terror orchestrated from Paris upon the liberal yet obedient citizens of Loudon. It is an exercise in politics which we witness even today, and closer to home than we'd like to think.
