Newcastle upon Tyne, England. On the very far side of middle age, widowed Daniel Blake, a construction worker specializing in fine carpentry work, is recuperating from a heart attack. Despite his GP and cardiologist's assessment that he is not yet fit enough to return to work, he is denied employment and support allowance based on the standardized criteria assessment by the government agency. With no savings and no personal support, he is relying on some sort of government financial assistance to help him through this time when he should not be working. As he tries to set in motion the appeals process for the employment and support allowance and as he tries to find any other government program for which he may even be remotely eligible to tie him through the short term until he is deemed healthy enough to return to work, he runs into one bureaucratic quagmire after another, each process seemingly designed to make people like him fail and give up. Through this time, he is enmeshed within the lives of two sets of people. The first is his young neighbor, China, and China's friend, Piper, who are trying to start a new business in today's global economy. The second is Katie Morgan, a single mother to adolescents Daisy and Dylan Morgan. The Morgans have just moved to Newcastle from London solely as that is where there was social housing available. Katie too has fallen into the bureaucratic runaround at social services. Regardless, Katie is determined to make a home for her two children despite her financial problems. Regardless of his own health and financial issues, the former which he doesn't tell Katie, Daniel is equally determined that Katie will not end up in the same situation as him, he doing whatever he can to help her.

Frank D'Angelo is a newly minted cop with a star witness, a former enemy of the squad. Disillusioned with the life and death machine in law enforcement, he falls in love with the woman of his dreams, whose face he discovers in a newspaper. This in turn, prompts Frank to quit the force and become a private investigator. Inevitably, this means his profession will be on the wane, which leads to Frank's mentor's dismissal and his one-night stand with a poor waitress. The movie is really one long showcase of Frank's individual charm, his only superpower. This charm, and in a more or less practical sense, the persona that it engenders, is the first asset in this movie. D'Angelo conveys a screen presence and is very charismatic, and the camera-work is always very careful to strike a balance between character and camera. It is the camera that shows the audience the most. The two main characters are played by Charlize Theron and Timothy Hutton. Theron's character, Detective Sally, is not particularly strong and is more of a passive presence. She does not necessarily have to be aggressive, but she is more than someone that we can find ourselves empathizing with. Frank D'Angelo is more of a strong and singular presence, and this movie really captures that. The movie is also nicely framed by an overall quiet tone. It is also interesting how the plot takes place in the suburbs of a city that does not normally have a great deal of crime. Frank is given the task of locating the dead man's daughter in order to put an end to a massacre, but he discovers a murder that he believes he is responsible for. It is not clear exactly what the motivation is for this, but there are plenty of things that can explain it. The movie can be extremely dense at times, and it can make you lose track of what is going on. It is a movie that I think is important to those who believe that people deserve justice. D'Angelo is smart, but he is not really a bad guy. He is a good cop who has had enough of the life he has to live, and he goes to great lengths to bring justice to those who have wronged him. The film does a great job of showing the clash of justice and justice in the mind of a person who has a lot to lose. The movie is not without its flaws. The plot twists, which are introduced just a few minutes into the film, were not really that satisfying. I could not get a handle on the motivations of the men, especially Frank. I was never sure what Frank's motivation was, and I would not be surprised if that was a big part of why I did not care about the film. All of this is not a reason to leave the theater

This is probably one of the most interesting films I've ever seen. The acting is stellar. There is a truly great scene in the beginning of the film where one of the students at the university really does a great job of managing to sound like the character without necessarily sounding like a boy or a girl. I really believe this is based on the voice of the real author of the story and I'm not saying that it's only the voice of the actor but I'm talking about the actual character. I didn't find the acting distracting or anything like that but the quality of the dialogue and the fact that it's true to the story really brings this film above the average. There is a lot of maturity and depth in this film that I believe is really important to modern audiences, and I believe that it would be very hard to find a better piece of work than this film. Not to mention the beautiful music that I just love and actually played the music in my car every time I drive by it. This film is seriously worth checking out and seeing.

This movie is wonderful to watch. Each scene is kept in the background while the actors deliver their lines so well. Each of the actors, especially Anne Heche, does an outstanding job in making their characters engaging and engaging their audience. To date I have never seen a movie like this. A few observations: this movie is different from other movies in the genre. The reason for this is very much that it is not an action movie, or a suspense movie, or a mystery. This movie is just. well, it's a movie. Many of the actors are still in school, the romance in the movie is very natural and believable, and the plot is simple and linear, unlike the common Hollywood formula. There are some negative points, but if you are going to see a movie that is difficult to find, this is one of the best.

I must admit I'm not a big fan of the Coen Brothers. But despite their projects being different and at times comical, I have to say I have to say that every single Coen Brothers film I have seen to date has been a different experience. No matter how much one likes a particular Coen Brother film, it's still just another Coen Brothers film. And I still love them. But this movie was great. It's about a man named Daniel Blake, who suffers from a drug addiction. What I like about this film is the fact that it features a director and a producer who are both intelligent. No matter how odd the plot turns may be, their takes on these twists is exciting. The way the Coen Brothers brings out these twists and turns makes the movie's film really captivating. This is a true testament to how good a Coen Brothers movie can be. The movie begins with the introduction of a young guy named Daniel Blake. Blake is a talented thief and has plans to steal a massive amount of money from a large bank. However, the police chief on the job, Robert Duvall (Edward Norton), is a bit apprehensive about Blake's plan. He is concerned about Blake getting too much credit for this heist, causing Blake to feel like he's on autopilot. But he tells Duvall that he wants the money and that he doesn't want the job to be one of his. Duvall gives Blake a room to work out his problems with his dope habit and later he gives Blake a loan from one of his officers. Blake takes out a loan for $400,000. After taking out the loan, Duvall is threatened to arrest him for accepting a loan. But Duvall tells him that if he doesn't get the $400,000. Duvall doesn't want to make a big deal about the $400,000, so he tells Blake that he will be the judge in the matter. But Blake is not going to give up the money, so Duvall agrees to let Blake go. So Blake goes on a journey to try to prove that Duvall was lying to him. As the film progresses, Blake encounters a man named Kent Brackett (Tommy Lee Jones). Kent is a loyal friend of Blake's. Blake keeps a safe and a hidden-place in his house, and his father tells him that if there's anything in the safe, his father will let him in. It's a bit of a commitment to the character. I like Blake's character a lot, as well as his attitude. In fact, I think that Tommy Lee Jones is the best character in this movie. I can't believe that he was in the film. But once he's on the screen, he's just brilliant.

.it is sad and on the edge of reality in which even tragic events can be reduced to what one of them was destined to be at the moment. The only good thing to be said about the movie is that in the whole, it was entertaining, the whole storyline was more realistic than it used to be and the acting was quite good. Unfortunately, this movie is lacking something else. If the movie was good at all, it was as a result of the fact that it is predictable. It is like the major character was destined to be the person who should be the hero, and all his troubles were just reasons for the hero to lose. I think that the story is more interesting when one sees this situation with a bit more tension. Also, the dialogues are not very well done. I can see that they did not want to repeat the same old. A sad conclusion that I can see that the movie will be left as an OK movie. It has many positive points, and I am sure that some people would like it. But for me, I would have preferred the movie to be more strong and better.

I have to say, I was not expecting much from this movie but I was pleasantly surprised. The movie is quite insightful and you really find out what someone is really thinking about life. It takes a bit of explaining but I think you will understand the points better than your average teenager. It's not really the story but the lessons. It's worth watching for those with an interest in Philosophy or even just a curiosity in life. If you're a musician or an artist then I think you will enjoy the movie. I think everyone can learn something from the movie. I think anyone who has had a lot of life experiences will also find it interesting. For me, it was the relationship between father and son. Both the father and son see life in very different ways and the father is having difficulties, but it's an interesting story. It's a bit like Epictetus. If you have studied philosophy you will find the movie to be insightful. You will find out how life is really not what you expect. You will learn a lot of different things about life.

A little silly and yet meaningful. Like I said in the title, it is to ridiculous to make you think. It is to see the actual human beings around you. It is to have it about you. And to actually understand why those things happen. The other point that people who didn't watch the whole movie would make is that all the characters in the movie are stereotyped. By that I mean the caricatured American-British-Asian. I would say that if you didn't like the movie, then you are too American to watch it. There is a quote in the movie about a French farmer, he had been in France for 20 years, and he thought that he would go back to his home country. And he was wrong. The irony here is that the movie is a satire on the hero of the French Revolution, he was a man who believed he could bring his nation from ruin. He was wrong and in the end, he was defeated. His flaws were so apparent that he was dead wrong. But you can see why he believed in that notion, it was hard to be a revolutionary. But he didn't take this literally, as that would have meant to stand up against God, to allow the people to control themselves and not let their people to be ruled by him. In this movie you can see that this is the real reason he believed it. And there is a beautiful line in the movie about the monarchy: "Let your country fall into the hands of the politicians and their ministers. Let them rule you. And give them all you have. I know what the revolution is. It's like water in the soil. It always flows downhill, and when it does, it turns into blood." -King Louis XIV

I saw this movie when it was first released on video. I think I was the first person to do so, and I saw it a second time in the theater, two years later, when I was 11. I loved it then, and love it now. The simplicity and humor of the film has a lot to do with how much I still like it. I can still laugh out loud with it. I also think there are some problems with the film. Like it's treatment of it's gay characters. I think the movie could have done without putting some of the gay characters into such a stereotypical way. I think it's a part of how popular movies have made gay people out to be very loud, and to laugh at how stupid they are. I think some of the more negative comments come from people who have never seen it, and might not really understand it. There is some acting I don't like about the film, and that's being honest. I think Kevin Kline is good, but his screen time is not huge, and it's not until the end that he shows some real acting ability. I think that casting some different actors who have more acting ability would have helped. Also, I think the fact that his mother is dying and that he is raising the boy himself is just sad. That is not something that happens in a lot of films. One thing I didn't like about the film is that I think it fails to create any sympathy for the children. There are a few good scenes that show them dealing with their mother, but not enough to move the story forward. The conclusion of the film is just a slight let down, as it has very little to do with the rest of the film. It's a good movie. It is good in the way that it treats it's characters. It's a good film. It is a good film. It's good. 8/10

Matthew Macfadyen does an outstanding job in "I, Daniel Blake", playing the role of a suicidal young man named Daniel Blake, who kills himself after a quarrel with his estranged wife. It is an excellent and tragic film. Matthew Macfadyen plays the role of Daniel Blake very well, but I also enjoyed watching Owen Wilson, playing another suicide prone man named Daniel L. As for Sean Penn, I thought that he did an excellent job in playing another young suicidal man named Daniel Blake, who eventually kills himself after a fight with his estranged wife. There are many movies about the death of suicide victims, but I feel that this is the first film where I can really say I know what it's like to be a suicide victim. The film does an excellent job of making you feel like you are living it yourself, and I recommend watching the film. I, Daniel Blake is an excellent film about suicide. Matthew Macfadyen and Owen Wilson are excellent in their roles as Daniel Blake and Daniel L.

My wife and I enjoyed this movie thoroughly. We saw it again recently and found it fresh and very entertaining. The casting is very accurate. The characters are wonderfully portrayed and while some are a little much, most are believable. You can't really blame the actors for the light comedic and dramatic portrayals of the characters as that would be impossible for a movie like this to do. We are satisfied with the role of Chris (the actor who plays the youngest son, Thurgood) and the mother of the husband of the son who is a character named Talia. Their backgrounds and character backgrounds are very accurate. The boy who plays the older brother has a very subtle talent for playing the younger brother, as well as his wife in the movie. The more he plays the older brother and the mother, the better he does. Thurgood (the older son) is excellent in his role as well. As for the mother of the husband, Talia, she has a wonderful accent, is very articulate and a very mature and experienced woman. She has been married to a highly educated, successful black man, and she does a good job with it. For me, the best part of the movie is the relationship between the father and mother, who is very intimate and on the same page. To me, the plot line is strong, and the way the movie is played, you believe it is actually happening. The music and the cinematography are great. This movie has a message that you can take away from it that if you really think about it, makes you think. We have a new generation of people who are learning to love someone they didn't think they could, and that's exciting.

Edward (Danny) lives with his sister Lola (Dana Thomson), the only member of the upper class, in a well-to-do suburb. The pair gets an email from an old school friend, Marc (Jason Ritter), who wants Edward to meet his son, Adam (Colin Hanks). Adam lives in a different part of the country, and spends his time writing poetry. The pair soon fall in love with each other, and are taken to a country country house to meet Adam and his family. But, Adam will leave without Edward and Lola. While living in the country, Edward discovers that Adam has more than just a poet's name: he is a slave owner, a murderer, and a drunkard. Edward and Lola travel with Adam to the backwoods and find out more about the events that led them to the country house. The film is very intense, and shows the dark side of the old South. It's great to see young actors like Hanks and Thomson in a film about the South.

In the summer of 1975, the UK suffered an almost total blackout that lasted over a week. At the time, Britain was on the brink of nuclear war, and the use of the same submarine, 'Eagle', that could have saved British lives and the rest of the UK could have done more to prevent this calamity, remains a controversial figure. Fortunately, the courage and wisdom shown by the men who manned the submarine during these extraordinary times is now available on-line for the first time. This film was released the same year as "Gladiator", and has the advantage of being released during the summer. The thing that really made this film special was the crew's grueling work. The swimming, the diving, the bailing out, the rescue, the wire work. To get all of this on screen was as difficult as it was to accomplish. We need a few more people like those who survived this ordeal. This film has the added bonus of being available on video.

We saw this film last night at the San Diego Film Festival. Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Rory Culkin, and Paul Bettany all performed extremely well in the film. I really enjoyed the characters and the script, though the acting was really bad. It's about two brothers who are in the midst of a divorce. The film takes a look at how and why one brother takes on the role of becoming an a-hole and the other brother is trying to maintain a quiet relationship with his estranged wife and daughter. The film is shot in black and white, and features few musical numbers. The film also has some very powerful scenes and the final showdown between the brothers and a fellow neighbor. This is definitely a film that you should see at least once. For the most part, the acting is really bad, but they are all very good in this film. Michael Fassbender will most likely be a favorite of mine for many years to come.

I was always sure that I would love this movie, especially since I saw this film during its first weekend release in 1983. I could not be more wrong. What I didn't understand was why the audience liked the film so much, considering the flaws it had. The movie had a lot of flaws, and was just as much a disaster as the two men who created it. The music was not really what was supposed to be in the movie, because it didn't fit the situation, and because it was too upbeat. The two men who made this film had no trouble falling into a Hollywood plot, and when the movie was over, there was nothing left to be seen. For one, what was the point of a jail with two bars so short that two men could fall off? And why was the "director" coming up with these silly scenarios? And how did the two men fall in love in the first place? Why did she hate him so much? Why did he fall for her? What was the point in the fake revolution at the end? Why did the film end so abruptly? And why did the lawyer come back and kill the murderer? And why did the police go away? So much was left unexplained. But the major flaw was the ending. One of the most important questions of the film was, why did Daniel Blake get rid of the furniture? And why did he ask the architect to arrange the furniture? The architect was clearly not much of an architect, and Daniel Blake was, yet he had to arrange the furniture. So the furniture was a chance for Daniel to escape his hellish prison. But in the end, he ended up getting rid of it. This was more like the drama of the thief who was fed up with everything, who had nothing to lose, and who was under the impression that he could live the rest of his days in paradise. The movie was like the result of a train wreck, and the theory of the director was that Daniel Blake's soul could escape the prison of the matted furniture, and then go to paradise with the piano.

* POSSIBLE SPOILERS * The movie is about the rise of the crime syndicate in Chicago. Robert De Niro plays Bill Logan, the evil, charismatic leader of the gang, a top executive in the police force. He is not like any man in law enforcement, he is always hard on the truth, and does not care if he can get away with anything. When the movie takes place, he has grown tired of the law enforcement business and has moved to New York City, where he lives in a mansion surrounded by all sorts of dealers. He has just had a heart attack and is now getting care for it at the state hospital. His wife is suffering from dementia and is being cared for by a doctor. The mafia knows of the doctor, but does nothing to help her. The doctor ends up dead, and a man arrives at his door, asking for help. He is Logan's son, Daniel Blake, and from then on Blake has just one goal in life, to save his father's life. After getting him a job as a security guard, he convinces his father to join him in the job. When this is established, Blake feels secure in his new job. But he still wants to go back to Chicago to see his father. When he gets to Chicago, Blake finds that there is a police unit in the city that is investigating his dad's murder. Blake convinces his father to be involved with this case, so he can prove his dad is innocent. While he was in New York for that trip, he gets captured by some Italian gang members. He was trying to escape from them, and they think that he was doing it on purpose. The main reason why this movie is worth watching is De Niro. He plays a character that is built up to be dark and angry, yet he makes it a point to have some humor in his acting. He plays a bad guy and still has some emotion, like when he tells his son that he will never be as happy as his dad is. He really lets the movie flow and also shows how the mafia gets under his skin. With all the violence he has to endure, he manages to have some good moments, and the movie shows his transformation from a "coward" to a man who believes that he can get away with anything. The movie is about 2 hours long, so it is not a huge story, but it does have some big moments in it. I recommend this movie to anyone who loves action, drama, and action movies, because this is really a great movie. * Final thoughts * The movie is not my favorite by far, but it is an action packed movie, so I recommend it for action movie fans.

It's not until the very end of the film that all the people come together and literally become one. I almost fell asleep during the middle and I finally got my head around what I was watching, but it wasn't worth it. The acting is excellent and the script is a little convoluted. But it's all done with grace and no attempt is made to make this a smart, funny, feel-good film. It's just a very good film. I highly recommend it. Especially if you have insomnia. You'll be rolling in the aisles.

I saw the movie two weeks ago, and it was an excellent movie, but it did not hit me as badly as I thought it would. Daniel Blake (The Oscar Nominated Actor)is a Boston Boy Scout who's life takes a turn for the worse when he discovers that his little brother, Luke Blake (The Nominated Actor) is gay. Eventually, Daniel Blake becomes a member of a gay pride organization that helps him to come to terms with his feelings. The movie tells the story of a father, and his loss of his son. The movie is funny, and it will not let you think about the story or the movie. I think if you are going to go see the movie, do not think about what the story is about or anything. You should go and watch it for the story and do not think of the movie, you will enjoy it greatly. Michael Angarano was very good in the role of Father. Overall, I would recommend this movie to all people, gay or straight.

I think there are two levels to this film. On the one hand you have the documentary quality of the film. It makes you feel like you are part of the crew, and every actor is being completely honest with you. On the other hand you have the images. The camera is a constant constant tension. Its a constant well used tool. It can be used to good or bad effect. In a way it is a tool used in a serious way, but on the other hand it can be used in an unintentional way. If you are only familiar with the documentary look you will love this film. But if you want a nice movie then this is not for you.

Since this movie is a sequel to THE LONE WOLF MAN, I had expected to find it lacking and dull. I was pleasantly surprised. It is a movie that sticks closely to the original story, but it is a very good story. It is based on a true story that many people know about. I will not tell you any of it. As I said before, the acting was great by all of the actors. The writing was also very good. This movie has to be one of my favorite movies of all time. It has a feeling of realism and realism of mystery and thriller. It is not an action movie, but it is suspenseful and exciting. I can't wait to see the sequel. I recommend it.

The star of this movie is Shari Shattuck. She is fantastic in this movie. She has a good performance. At first I was a little skeptical that she would play such a great part in the movie. But she really brought it in this movie. That is the reason I love her so much in this movie. I think she is the perfect actress for this role. She is an excellent actress. I think the performances are very different for each of the characters in the movie. However, they all do well. I would give this movie 8 out of 10 stars.

I just watched this film on TV, and to my astonishment, I found myself watching the entire film. I was not expecting that. I was a bit disappointed that I did not get more into the story. I would have liked to have seen more of The Archers. The story was told in a very simple way, which I did not like at all. It just wasn't my type of movie. Maybe the style of the film is so beautiful that it has more impact. Maybe it has something to do with the way Daniel Blake moves and talks. Maybe it is the feeling that the main characters are in a dream-like state. The beautiful cinematography, I believe, contributed to that. All in all, I did not like this film very much. But it was great when I saw it. And when I think of the main characters, I am tempted to get up and move out of my own house.
