My Opinion about Quills .



Much too often Sade has been compared to a vulgar pornographer. The man was a libertine whose escapades, more than the books, were at the origin of his contentions with justice. His works are certainly salty, but his writing is rich and gleaming while his books still harbor a philosophical dimension. His work is above all a reflection of the decadence of the nobility and society of his time. The man assumes his perversity, but especially airs out the vices of his peers. He reveals what hides behind the apparent propriety of the nobility and the court. Hence the success of his books with common people and the danger he represents for those in power.

European cinema tries to make one of the last taboos fall in the name of realism, real sex onscreen, and that the puritan and senile American MPAA does not hesitate in cutting the work of major directors, allowing the propagation of lobotomized cinema, the message of Phillip Kaufman is clear: the right to the freedom of expression is an inalienable right regardless of the nature of the contents.

My rate Is :8.40/10 for it.


as i said a thought provoking movie, in the right direction.

Lolita jan..

I think is good knowing better The Marquis de Sade if you want to have the other perspective about this movie ! because he was a sexual pervert and criminal and in this movie, we cann't see that !

Quills is just a theatric movie ! with a good and shorts screeplayes ! not so much artictis.just symbolic and talkin about him by ther other persons.

Lolita jan,when you have a time, you can watch also Dark Prince: Intimate Tales of Marquis de Sade (1996) .

About Anthony Quinn R.I.P


Posted Image




He said once:"In Europe an actor is an artist. In Hollywood, if he isn't working, he's a bum."

Quinn is the first Mexican-born actor to win an Academy Award. He won for Best Supporting Actor, in 1952, for Viva Zapata. He would win the award again in the same category for Lust for Life in 1956.

Posted Image


Shortly after completing his final film role in Avenging Angelo (2001), Anthony Quinn died of pneumonia and respiratory failure while suffering from terminal throat cancer at the age of 86 in Boston, Massachusetts. He lived out the twilight of his life in Bristol, Rhode Island and is buried there today in a family cemetery plot. His funeral service was held in a Baptist church; he had come to belong to the Four Square evangelical Christian community.

Posted Image


My favorite movies by him are :

Alexis Zorbas (1964)

The Last Train from Madrid (1937)

King of Alcatraz (1938)

The Texas Rangers Ride Again (1940)

Buffalo Bill (1944)

Sinbad the Sailor (1947)

Viva Zapata! (1952)

Attila (1954)

Ulisse (1955)

Lawrence of Arabia (1962)

The Old Man and the Sea (1990)

La noche de los castillos (1995)

"Camino de Santiago" (1999)

---

Quinn proved as volatile and passionate as his screen persona in his personal life. He divorced his wife Katherine, with whom he had three children, in 1956. The following year he embarked on a tempestuous thirty-one-year marriage to costume designer Iolanda Quinn. The union crumbled in 1993 when Quinn had an affair with his secretary that resulted in a baby; the two shared a second child in 1996. In total, Quinn fathered thirteen children, among them Alex A. Quinn, Francesco Quinn, Lorenzo Quinn, Valentina Quinn, and Sean Quinn, who is a real estate agent in New Jersey. Anthony Quinn had three known mistresses.

He loved lots women in his life and he said once again :"I never get the girl. I wind up with a country instead." :) .

About Gary Oldman


Posted Image




The only other actor since Lon Chaney Sr. to be named "Man of a Thousand Faces" owing to his ability to become whatever character he plays. The nickname "Crazy Gary Oldman" is believed to have originated in a 2004 parody of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban on the Livejournal site Movies in 15 Minutes, where Oldman's character Sirius Black is on a wanted poster, screaming: "I'M SO CRAZY! LOOK AT ME! I'M CRAZY GARY OLDMAN!". I love his character and his faces in each of his movies.

Posted Image



I prefer to call him like his fans :"The Lord of the Accents" and "The Chameleon". :)

My favorite movies by him are:

Criminal Law (1988)

JFK (1991)

Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)

Murder in the First (1995)

Air Force One (1997)

Lost in Space (1998)

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)

Léon (1994)

The Fifth Element (1997)
---

Oldman appears in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire with Ralph Fiennes. Both of them have played villains in Hannibal Lecter films. Oldman played Mason Verger in Hannibal, and Fiennes played Francis Dolarhyde in Red Dragon.

Screen legend ELIZABETH TAYLOR is set to tie the knot for the ninth time with a man 17 years her junior, according to media reports.

The 74-year-old reportedly told her actress friend DEBBIE REYNOLDS she was thinking about marriage again after falling for portrait artist FIROOZ ZAHEDI.
He has recently helped her through a string of health problems including congestive heart failure and crippling arthritis.

Posted Image


A pal tells British newspaper The Sunday Express, "She has known some terribly dark days over the last few years. But it's amazing how she's bounced back.

"She has rebounded straight into the arms of a man - and it's wonderful to see them together. Liz lives to be loved. For some stars, it's work, family, even shopping. But for Liz, romance has always been the driving force." Taylor's spokesman in Los Angeles confirms her friendship with Zahedi, but says, "I couldn't possibly comment on personal relationships." The actress' previous husbands include RICHARD BURTON and truck driver LARRY FORTENSKY.

He first caught my attention in the part of 'Puck' in 'A Midsummer Nights Dream' and is more recently in 'The Devil Wears Prada' which he is also wonderful in. His other films include 'Road to Perdition', 'The Terminal' and 'Winchall' for which he won a Golden Globe, he also directed 'Big Night' and portrayed Stanley Kubrick in 'The life and Death of Peter Sellers'.
If you see this guys name in the credits, know that your watching a truly worthy performance!

What's New, Pussycat (1965)



Posted Image



Is a 1965 film directed by Clive Donner and starring Peter Sellers and Peter O'Toole.

This was Woody Allen's film debut, as well as his first produced script.American film critics condemned the film as decadent and immoral.

Posted Image



Quotes


Michael joins Victor at a pavement cafe where he is playing chess with a girl. He is followed by Toulouse Lautrec who sits at another table with Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin.

Later in the same scene:


Michael: "Did you get a job?"

Victor: "Yes, I got something at the strip-tease, I help the girls dress and undress"

Michael: "Nice job"

Victor: "Twenty Francs a week"

Michael: "Not very much"

Victor: "It's all I could afford"

A typical Woody Allen one-liner: at one point, when under extreme pressure to marry, Michael says "Marriage? That's for life! It's like cement!"

Peter O'Toole bumps into Richard Burton in a strip club; Burton says: "Excuse me, but don't you know me from somewhere?" O'Toole answers, "The name's familiar, but I just can't place the face..."


Posted Image


Hahahahahaha :)))


Peter Sellers turns in a performance that opens at high do and never looks back as a lunatic psychiatrist. He is treating Peter O’Toole, a man who wants to be faithful to his girlfriend (Romy Schneider) but cannot say no to the innumerable women who throw themselves at him. Into the mix comes Woody Allen, who, unsurprisingly, plays a sexual loser.:D

Posted Image


But the humour is pretty hoary now, the slapstick very much the sort of 60's wackiness that wasn’t that funny in the first place. Everyone involved has done much better work, and Sellers’ psychiatrist is far from being his best creation. He comes across as Sellers doing a Woody Allen impression, and with Allen in the film too, that’s redundant.I recomend this movie to all of you guys. :)

Secretary
Cert: 18
Released: 2002
Cast :Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Spader, Jeremy Davies, Lesley Ann Warren.
Director: Steven Shainberg

A sleeper hit, cult classic,

Posted Image

Dont let the saucy tagline 'Assume the Position' fool you, the Secretary is actually a romantic comedy in the guise of a S&M movie which is what drove the 'hollywood' crowd away and indie fans in!
This is similar to Almodover movies in that once you get past the sex, its a beautiful and simple love story. Spader is in the prime of his comfort zone role turning you on with every little uncomfortable move, but Maggie Gyllenhall makes this movie about her, she rocked the cinema world with this subtle and yet powerful performance, you wont be able to get her out of your mind after you watch her in this!
This film is not for the prudish (has masterbation and softcore S&M scenes) but if you are willing to open your mind, you will not be disappointed!

My rating: 9.5/10

V for Vendetta (2005)



Posted Image




His director, James McTeigue, also make debut in the direction after to have been assistant of direction in these three films. The result of the adaptation of the graphical novel of the same cojea title exactly of the same foot that last the two deliveries of the Wachowsky factory: incredible dialogues, an almost disastrous rate and too much well paid pseudo-philosophical information and of itself. "V of Vendetta" is impressive visually, and surely it will say of her that it has a novel and deep idea. Nevertheless, all the unfolding pyrotechnics that McTeigue uses in its film, dismounts due to a tragic lack of narrative sense, that it turns films in little more than "story-board" filmed.

Obvious, this film has not been done before, and its more basic originality will be what their producers use to sell the product. But this causes several doubts. On the one hand, although never these subjects have been put and these together images, indeed this way, the film probably will age soon and badly, without greater pain nor glory. On the other hand, the newness does not justify in itself a film, and less if there are no other elements that sustain it, like interesting personages who are not mere masks, a spun history or, trasfondo thematic dangerous or the mere diversion; all this "V of Vendetta" lacks. It happens that, after the initial exposition of the film, of first promissory minutes in which the theoretical bases are based of it films, the script happens ininteligible and banal.

My Rate Is: 7.60/10

Tie me up! Tie me down! (¡Átame!)

Certificate: 18
Cast: Antonio Banderas, Victoria Abril, Francisco Rabal
Directors: Pedro Almodovar
Original language: Spanish

Posted Image

Almodover is one of my favorite directors of all time and this film of his is one of my favs, starring a young Antonio Banderas (showing hes more than a pretty face).

PLOT: Just released from a psychiatric hospital, Ricky (Antonio Banderas) determines to track down his favourite porn star and one-time lover Marina (Victoria Abril) , with the ultimate aim of matrimony. Marina is not convinced, so Ricky imprisons her in a bid to convince her of his affections.

This is such a sweet and yet unconventional romantic movie, and although the concept of the story is basically kidnapping (one critic described it as "almost a fairytale for stalkers") you cant help but will her to fall in love with him (the five minute sex scene also helps!) And watch out for Lola (Lolas León) who steals the show wonderfully with her performance as Marinas sister.

But this is a very simplistic and fresh look at the romantic comedy genre, and thoroughly enjoyable, of course a young and very handsome Banderas is also efffective!

My rating: 8/10

Final Destination III



Posted Image




The people in charge of "Final Destiny" James Wong (director and scriptwriter) and Glen Morgan (scriptwriter) did not want to return to the saga, after staying to the margin in the second delivery, unless outside to offer something new. Then, it seems that they had to change of opinion because we have the same film with which they delighted to us six years ago but with an inferior quality. The problem of trilogies is to offer something original twice more. "Final Destiny 3" does not surprise the spectator absolutely, in no aspect and it is immersed in an inevitable argumental fatigue becoming a simple excuse to everywhere show to mutilated bodies and splashes of vísceras.

Terrible dialogues, foreseeable, twentyish deaths near the some thirty interpreting to adolescents stereotyped to the limit: pijas unbearable, captains of the football team... all this is what third delivery guarantees this. The deaths are the product of the outbreak of a barbarism of actions (some as absurd as: to bar the door with a cream tube, the shelf that blocks the suntan oils...) getting to be very artificial and little realistic. In spite of all the film it has a shining scene, one is the initial sequence in the hunting that although remembers very many to the boarding in flight 180 is novel and surprising. The rest of the metraje this plagued of situations traced to those of the first delivery becoming leaves.

Already exhausted the resource of the spectacularity operated in "Final Destiny 2", the attempt to surpass the death scenes (some obtain it) is not enough to construct a good script. It was possible to have been chosen to accompany being impregnated them all history by a suspense atmosphere and intrigues By the way, that nobody is deceived and waited for a spectacular closing that it gives a sense to the three films, because will not find it, is no conclusion and surely more sequels will come. The lady of the scythe resists to retiring but no longer she is what was.

Half light 2006


Posted Image




It begins relatively well, but it finishes very badly. Although history sounds well-known from the first ten minutes, the photography of Ashley Rowe and the correction with which Craig Rosenberg block the technical elements, they made wait for a little more. Nevertheless, the spectator already realizes in first half an hour of which he must not have sent the bells to the flight. The film begins taking care of many cliches of the classic sort of ghosts, but the hope stays during a good section that there will be innovations.


The cinema has its rules beyond the theological ones; that a film treats on the mysterious thing, on further on and the other little nutritional questions, would not have to mean that their people in charge do not try to give something of coherence to the material whereupon they work.

Freedomland 2006


Posted Image



Freedomland it is a peculiar title, considering that the criminal plot of the film has to do with racism. But this question is little important considering that films will not happen to the history of the cinema, in spite of its good intentions, by its absolute incapacity to entertain. Directed by Joe Roth and written by Richard Price, being based on an own novel, "the color del crime" is confused, it is able to create tension neither with the subject of the racist confrontations nor with its plot of thriller, and it emphasizes solely to obtain that two good actors as Julianne Moore and Samuel L. Jackson seem inexperienced in their work. This movie contains many common places, robbed of other films, but the mistake with which they have been united is one of the most spectacular things of films.

Surely that is not its will, but "the color of the crime" takes desperate laughter whenever the plot complica a little more, and makes very uncomfortable spend in the cinema almost the two hours that the sinsentido one lasts.

Man about town 2006


Posted Image




The film, that is entertained and is enough awhile for pleasant and without pretensions, frustrates a little, indeed because it could have gotten to be brilliant. In ''Man about town " we see a very intelligent film, but their creators do not manage to show it to us; since it remains halfway in his intentions and he serves basically like vehicle of lucimiento to Horseradish tree Affleck.

Affleck seems to interpret itself to itself and it does not consolidate its personage nor it is able to load with the important weight that it has on its backs. He is surprising that, although as much the actor as the director works thorough the intimate aspects of the protagonist, through memories and traumas, the central line of the plot and its present motivations are not developed with clarity.

In the positive side, they are the beautiful ones you imagine of the Angels who Binder provides to us, thanks to a magnificent intuition to locate the camera, to the photography of Russ Alsobrook and the design of production.

The Omen 2006


Posted Image




The history of a boy who is the son of the demon would have to give fear, without concerning the era of descreimiento and rationalization in which we lived. Nevertheless, the director John Moore takes a series from unfortunate decisions that return such stupid and laughable notion. That the parents of Damián wonder themselves what it happens with the boy, and if it needs pedagogo urgency, when all the one that approaches the creature dies dramatically, is already extraordinary. The spectator takes too much advantage to them during all the film like for giving in serious, specially because it is obvious that the boy is a demon, although is boring and singsong in his pallor and the fixation of a glance that, supposedly, transmits badness.
