I was so impressed with this film. I am a big fan of David Fincher and this film has everything he is known for. As usual he had the perfect cast and script. I was very impressed with the script, and I was very surprised at the acting skills of Jude Law and Micahel Barr. Micahel Barr is one of my favorite actors. I feel that he is underrated and I believe that people don't see him that way. I think that he is one of the top acting talents. He plays a tough guy who is very naive. Jude Law is very talented as well. He is a good actor and I think that he is very underrated. Both of them were very good. I was very surprised at the chemistry between Jude and Micahel. They were very good together and I was so impressed. I was very happy with the ending of this film. It was very touching and I loved the message that this film was trying to send. I loved this film and I hope you enjoy it as well.

I remember when I first saw this movie in the theatre. I thought it was great. I think it is one of the best films of the 90's. The actors and actresses that were in this film are some of the most talented actresses of the 90's. The fact that the movie was made in the 70's, it makes it more real. Also, the 80's is a good decade for movies. It has some of the best films of the 80's. I believe that people who love films should see this film. If you don't like it, then you are missing out on a lot of great movies. I think that the best thing about this movie is that it shows the past and the present. There are two different stories. One is about the women and the other is about the men. The movie makes the point that we can't really tell the past from the present. The past is as important as the present. If you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend it. It is a very interesting movie. It shows us the women as they are in the 70's and then we see them in the 80's.

I read the book after seeing the movie and I loved it. So I decided to go see the movie. Well, I was disappointed. I knew the movie was going to be dark and depressing, but it was. It was so depressing I almost didn't want to go see it. I thought it would be a really funny movie. Instead it was just depressing. It made me feel bad about the world. It made me feel bad about myself. The movie was about a girl who was abused and abandoned by her parents. She tried to make a new life for herself and she got help and eventually became a writer. Then her parents just didn't accept her. They tried to find a way to make her stay in the house. But the movie was depressing. I just couldn't watch it. I didn't feel it was necessary to go see it. I can't say if it would have been a better movie if they had just made it funny and got rid of all the depressing stuff. But it was a really depressing movie. I think if they had done that they would have been able to show a more positive side of the movie. I liked it though. I hope they make a sequel.

Perhaps not the best movie I've seen, but it's definitely a favorite of mine. I was lucky enough to see this film at the New York Film Festival, and I can't wait to see it again! While not a "film" per se, it does have a "film-like" quality, but the quality is more of an atmosphere than a "film". I also found the story line extremely interesting and thought-provoking, with wonderful music. I believe this film will be on my "To See" list for a long time to come. I've seen it 3 times now, and will definitely be seeing it again.

The movie begins as the characters, including the photographer, are at a party, the "Grande Finale" of a ball. He takes a photo of the ball, and the girl he is taking the photo with asks for the photo back. The photographer shoots a few more shots of the ball, and the girl comes up to him and tells him she wants the photo back. The photographer tells her, "You don't want it back, you want it back in your mind." That is the beginning of a series of events, and I will not give away the ending. It is just too beautiful to describe. The movie, however, is a character study of the photographer, and his struggle to protect his work, and his self. The photographer is portrayed as someone with a limited range of emotion, and a poor memory of what happened. He is incapable of having an emotional connection with anyone, and the viewer is unsure whether he really does love or care for the girl he took the photo of. But he loves her, and he is willing to do anything to protect her. The viewer has to believe that, if he didn't love the girl, he would not be willing to do anything to protect her. The camera is his sole connection to the world, and the viewer must accept the fact that he is unable to communicate with others, not that he is unable to love. The only way to see the movie is to see it, and the viewer is left with the feeling that the camera is the only thing that matters, and he will always have it. The cinematography, as in a documentary, is wonderful, and I am not usually a fan of cinematography, but in this movie the camera is more important than the actors. I thought the director was excellent, and the cast was brilliant. The cinematography and the acting were really the only things that made the movie great.

This movie was amazing. The actors and actresses were amazing. I loved all the emotions. I would recommend this movie to anyone that wants to watch something really deep. I think it's a perfect movie to watch with someone you don't really know.

I really liked this movie. I thought it was a good balance between melodrama and comedy. A great acting performance by John Travolta, but also by Cate Blanchett. I thought the movie was very well done. It's like a movie that is perfectly made, and has a very strong story. It has good story lines and a great ending. The way the characters relate to each other is very well done. The movie also has a very good story. It's very interesting. I thought the characters were very interesting, and I thought the story was very good. I give it a 9 out of 10.

This is the kind of movie that you should watch after you have seen "Platoon". For those of you who have seen it, you will know what I mean. "Curb your Enthusiasm" is a very funny movie, but "West Side Story" is more. It is not like a comedy. You have to know some scenes and the "plots" of the characters. If you have seen the movie "I'm not a soldier" you know what I mean. "West Side Story" is very serious and it tells you everything you need to know. I highly recommend it. It's a movie that you can watch over and over again. I really enjoyed it. I give it an 9 out of 10.

The movie is a depressing and bleak view of the human condition. The only redeeming qualities to this film are the actors, who play each character with a sense of authenticity and intensity. This is an impressive achievement considering the incredibly poor quality of the acting in the majority of films produced these days. For example, some of the actresses in this movie are clearly from the mainland, and they are completely unknown to the mainland audience. I suppose that's the whole point of the movie. As a mainland American, I'm all for foreign movies to be viewed with an open mind, but in this case, I feel like the movie's message is entirely ignored. I have no doubt that the mainlanders who produce and promote this film must be trying to emulate the style of Hong Kong films, but the results are totally contrary to that. In my opinion, this film is a sad and depressing view of the human condition, but I guess that's what the director was going for.

I am totally astounded by all the low ratings here. I read the other reviews and I can't believe they were the same. The only thing that would've made this film better is if it was made by another director. It would've made a much more emotional movie. I can't understand why people are giving it such a low rating. I just saw it last night and I thought it was amazing. I know a lot of people don't like this film because it's too dark, or too depressing, or because it's just plain boring. I can't agree with any of those. I just don't understand how people can say this is a bad film. I give it a 10/10 because it's simply brilliant and I think you should definitely watch it.

A very well crafted film about the turmoil in Los Angeles in the 1970s. What a shame that it only became a cult classic in the 1980s.

I saw this movie as a screening on a Friday and was completely engrossed in the first half of the movie. When the credits began to roll, I started wondering what the heck happened. And then it occurred to me, what the heck happened to this movie? It had been out for over a year. It should have been a huge hit. What happened?

If you like movies about young people and teenagers, this is one of the best movies of the last few years. The story is well developed and very touching. The characters are good, the acting is good, the script is good, the directing is good. This movie was nominated for an Oscar and it deserved it. It was also nominated for the BAFTA and it deserves it too. I believe that this is one of the best movies of the year and I am sad that it was not nominated for best picture, because it deserved it. This movie has the same kind of art and feeling as American Beauty, but it is more serious. It is not just a movie about a boy coming of age, it is a movie about the psychology of people in the middle of life. This movie is the same kind of movie that American Beauty is. If you like this movie, you will like this movie. I recommend this movie to everyone, because it is the best movie of the year.

I loved this movie. I've seen it twice, both times alone, without my husband. We went to see it again last night and loved it even more. I've never seen a movie so real, so close to us. It made me sad to see people like O'Brien and Chekhov portrayed as cartoonish anti-heroes. But then again, O'Brien and Chekhov have never been portrayed as cartoon characters. If you want to see a movie about real people, go see 'The Aviator' instead. But if you want to see a movie about real people, see 'Sunset Blvd.'

I have not been able to sleep for a month after seeing this film. I think I will not sleep again for a few weeks. The cinematography is breathtaking. The entire film is surreal, but what we see is something beyond the human imagination. The film is shot in a way that creates a new world for the viewer to explore. I don't want to give too much away, but you will be lost in this film for a long time. I could say much more, but I would not want to give anything away. This is a film that I think everyone should see at least once in their lives. It is a wonder of the human imagination and will leave you in awe.

It was the middle of the year and the little amount of light that was available to see this movie at my local theater (blessed that I did see it in the middle of the night) caused me to sit in the back row. I am a bit of a movie nut, but this movie really didn't have any major shocks. It was a good drama, but not that good. I think it's all about the story, and it's really well done. This is a very good story, and it's easy to see the emotions that are portrayed. The story and the emotions are not overdone, and the tension is great. It's really great how well they shot it, and the color of the film is just great. If you like watching movies that are about love and life and love and life, then this movie is for you.

This is one of the most powerful movies I have ever seen. Its also one of the most disturbing. I could not take my eyes off the screen. After the first ten minutes, I was glued to the screen. I wanted to know more. More questions, more answers. I felt like I was the only one in the movie. The movie could have easily been boring, but the amount of pain and suffering that every character felt in this film was palpable. The acting was excellent. The cinematography was brilliant. Every scene was well-shot. But I think that the director's choice of music was something that made the movie stand out even more. The music, in combination with the cinematography, made me feel like I was there. The film is not for everyone, because it is a graphic depiction of a very difficult situation that many people would rather forget. I know it is a very difficult subject, but I would rather see a film about it that deals with it with more insight, than this film, which was completely blind. I recommend this movie to everyone.

How many people out there still think that Michael Caine is the best actor alive? I don't think so. His performance in "Sophie Scholl" was really good, and that's it. He's good at playing the kind of guy who is so self-absorbed that he can't take a hint of social niceties. But here he's all about the food. This film shows that it's not just a matter of looking good, but also looking after your soul. We can't all be the one-percenters. No one is. You're never going to be like John, but you can still be nice. The "Mad Men" guys can never be the kind of guys who would try to impress other people. They've just never seen the real world. Even "Mad Men" can't change that. "Sunset Blvd." can.

This film is a cinematic masterpiece and I believe the best in film ever made. It is very difficult to watch this film without shedding tears or even thinking of the man who made it. I love this film and have watched it dozens of times and will continue to do so. It is extremely well-acted, directed, edited, and the plot is very rich and very powerful. A perfect film and I recommend it highly to anyone.

I think that anyone with a little bit of intelligence and some real love for movies will appreciate this film. A little bit of warning: The title suggests that this is a gay film. I say that it is not. It is a drama about the dark side of life. I hope that this film has a few LGBT viewers who will enjoy it.

I've seen this movie a few times, and each time I get more and more into it. It's a beautiful film, and worth seeing. The way it's shot is incredible, the music is great, the cinematography is perfect, and the acting is excellent. I just love it. I also liked the way they handled the lead characters. It's not the best film ever, but it's a very good one. I recommend this to everyone, especially if you're looking for a good film. 9/10

The movie opens in a lonely office building where a janitor and a man in a wheelchair are sitting around in a circle discussing the most current crisis in the world. It is clear that the janitor is a schizophrenic. He is someone who's views of the world are contradictory. He is not a member of the class of people who's opinions matter. He is a degenerate who's only value is the value of his opinion. He is not someone who matters and has value. His only value is his opinion. He is also not someone who is worth listening to. He is a strange and eccentric person who we never get to know. And this is what is driving the movie. The janitor is not a cog in the wheel of the modern world. He is the embodiment of the decline of society. The movie is a look at a world that is falling apart and a view into a world that is collapsing. It is a view of the world as it is and not as it should be. It is a feel good movie and a feel good movie for people who are down and out. The movie has a dark and twisted message. The director of the movie is famous for his films "American Psycho", "Taxi Driver" and "The Lost Boys". "Sunset Blvd" is his most personal and personal film yet. His previous films have included "The Piano Teacher" and "The American President". "Sunset Blvd" is an emotional film. The acting is excellent. The music by John Powell and John Williams is incredible. "Sunset Blvd" is a unique and interesting film. It is a film that has a very real message. "Sunset Blvd" is a film that is one of the most important films of the year. It is a film that will leave an impact on the viewer. "Sunset Blvd" is a film that will have a lasting impact on the viewer.

A few days ago, I had the opportunity to see "Punch-Drunk Love" on DVD. I saw it with my wife and she said she thought it was a pretty good movie. So I decided to check it out and after watching it I thought it was one of the best movies she had seen in awhile. I haven't seen "The Departed" in a while but I do remember when I first heard about it. I thought it was just a waste of time. After reading some reviews I thought the same thing. I then decided to give it a shot and I have to say that it is a great movie. It is a little slow in parts but if you can get through that part you will have a great time. I have to say that I like the performances from Jack Nicholson and Leonardo DiCaprio. They are both very good in the movie and that is what really makes it worth watching. It is very different from what most people think and I think that is the main reason why I like it so much. I would give it a 9/10.

This movie is one of the best movie I have ever seen. I don't understand why this movie is not getting more recognition. I think the movie deserves more credit then the movies it's being compared to. I have seen this movie 5 times and every time I am looking forward to see it again. I think this is one of the best movies of all time. I recommend this movie to anyone who is looking for a good movie to watch.
