The Butterfly Effect

Watch it!

(Edit) 12/03/2006

Brilliant, breathtaking, original, imaginitive, compelling. Makes us examine how personalities are affected by experience. Comparison with 'Sliding Doors' (which I also thought was a great film) doesn't do it justice- multiply by 10.

Wasabi

LB's worst

(Edit) 12/03/2006

I'm a great fan of Luc Beson's stuff but this just didn't measure up. Take away John Reno's charismatic gruff style and the film would completely fall in to the catergory of regrettable rubbish.

Wimbledon

Serve it with strawberries and dream on

(Edit) 21/06/2005

So a Brit can't win Wimbledon in reality? Well let's make a film about a Brit who might win it in fiction... To buck up that British diffidence and lack of confidence, add a love interest -preferably American to maintain that special socio-financio-cultural relationship- and, well, that's it. There are some pleasurable gaffs along the way and the urban seaside cinematography is inspiring at times. Hopeless romantics will find this film endearing and is a recommended feelgood movie for them . For the rest of us, keep practising that backhand volley.

Coffee and Cigarettes

irritating

(Edit) 12/03/2006

Has the cool languid beginnings of something that I was hoping might turn out like Down By Law but just falls short of anything that could be descibed of entertainment- more like viewer masochism. Sorry Jim.

Down by Law

Still great

(Edit) 12/03/2006

The gutteral, twangy Tom Waits soundtrack gives this film a suitably laid back theme. I loved it when it first arrived on the arthouse cinema scene for its sculpted clash of downbeat, deep south, underground culture with Benigni's probing, insistent and seemingly innocent humour. That said, it has lost some of its cinematographic appeal on transit to the small screen and my wife found it rather slow moving.
