Format: DVD
This film is good verging on very good and I enjoyed watching it. Fans of Mickey Rourke will like it and he is his usual likeable laidback self. The acting is of a high standard including the minor roles. Michelle, the leading lady is hot and one of Mickey's dogs is in a scene. The pace is good, no time is wasted and it moves along nicely. Themes in the film are the nature and illusion of filmmaking and are criminals made by their experiences in society? My only (big) gripe is the huge amount of unnecessary background muzack. The scenes in prison with the serial killer are destroyed by stupid spooky muzack. It's probably good because it's a Belgian American co production and not Hollywood schlock. I got this as a double dvd with PLAYING GOD and the print is a bit dark, I'd say this dvd would be better and you have extras. In the end of the film they decide to make a film about the making of SHADES but you ask yourself is this film that film? If you know what I mean. SHADES is worth watching whether you like MR or not and is way better than average. RECOMMENDED !!

This is a clever film. It almost loses you within its meta-humour which it holds onto until the very end, but well written and well acted. If you like your films about films, I'd recommend this. If you're going to be turned off by the occasional scene in a non-english language without subtitles and a sometimes absurd plot, then find yourself the door

5.0 out of 5 stars Great satire on the film industry 12 Nov. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I really liked this movie. It is a must for any Mickey Rourke fan. The inside jokes are enough to make it good but Mickey takes it that extra step further and makes it great. A movie about a movie that takes great pleasure in poking fun at Actors, Actresses, Producers, Directors, cast and crew. The movie industry portrayed as the cutthroat, unscrupulous, painful industry it is. No one is left untouched. Even the writers get a jab when the "full of himself" star wants to change the script as he sees fit. A full-length feature full of Mickey Rourke makes this a must see.

As I ordered The movie Shades by Mickey Rourke, I can honestly express how good this film is.
I truly enjoy the work of art and this film has many aspects of them all.
Mickey Rourke was made for this film, the cool guy with the shades that takes this journey of a film of a film with many inside jokes.
2 thumbs up.

I am very happy with ordering at amazon.com!
They ship fast and the items are always in perfect condition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shades is brighter than it looks! 30 April 2009
By Shane Adam Bassett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Mickey Rourke fans will know about this already, a film he made in europe before his comeback in the Wrestler. He is a snake charmer as opposed to a nice guy in the movie industry. As usual this is weird as only Mickey knows how but very entertaining and interesting. A good DVD for your cult collection, hard to find.
