5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime, 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dead of Night (DVD) (DVD)
The British culture has produced some of the greatest shows ever! I watched these episodes without knowing what to expect and was blown away! Why did they discard the rest? Not sure but like the works of the great Greek tragedies I am just thankful that we can have a taste of a great moment in the annals of the television history... Thank you BFI! Keep up the great work!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lars von Trier comes back in force, 23 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Antichrist [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
First, I'd like to say that I am not in the least astonished that opinions about this movie are so polarized; von Trier has never played to the public and in an age like ours - where everything has to pass through idiotic focus groups & marketing gimmicks ad nauseam before any type of release - and if its purpose was to sell à la Jurassic Park and gain wide public consensus, there is no doubt in my mind that this movie would never have seen the light of day. It's not a sexy movie (but one about sexuality)... It's not a happy movie (but one about one's search for happiness)... It's not formulistic (but about one's struggle with archetypes)...

Lars Von Trier truly is one of the most important artists of our time!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Movie!, 5 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Kiyoshi Kurosawa has succeeded as did Chaplin some seventy odd years earlier with Modern Times and De Sica with Bicycle Thieves some time later. What struck me was the stark realism of this film's portrayal of unemployment: the denial, the despair, the degradation, the long line-ups, the lying and the abuse. Also, the actors - especially the one who portrayed the youngest son - were all first rate. I encourage anyone interested in serious cinema to buy this product! MoC, you've done it again!

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun movie that should not be compared to the RHPS, 10 Dec 2008
A underrated musical that never could have surpassed a cult phenomenon... The music is terrific and the whole story wacky!
