In 2015, exactly 100 years after the Armenian Genocide, a theatre director (Simon) is staging a play at the Los Angeles Theatre to honor the victims of that tragedy -- a horrifying crime forgotten and denied for an entire century. But as protesters surround his theatre, and a series of mysterious accidents spread panic among his actors, we realize that Simon's mission is more controversial than we think -- and the ghosts of the past are everywhere.

The 1981 version of Othello is a great movie and one of the best in its genre. It's a low-budget film that is beautiful and full of humour. The production was so well done that it almost looked like a painting. Like I said, a low-budget film but the film still holds its interest and you can feel the tension that is created. I did not want it to end and so when the last credits were rolling I was not sad to see it end. For some reason, the 1981 version seems to be missing from our modern film-watching world. I think it's because most of the actors were much better at the time. However, I enjoyed seeing the 1981 version and it is well worth seeing.

The movie in itself is very much like a slow moving video, but it's the way the movie is told and the tension is so thick that it makes you feel a part of the movie. It's a really powerful movie and for people who want a feel good movie, it's perfect. It's a love story in the middle of the conflict between two warring parties. The most intense and realistic scenes are the ones when the father is giving his son a pig's tail, or when the daughter is standing by her mother's grave and the father says "I love you". For me, the emotional part of the movie is not the child's innocence, but it's the death of the mother, the final scenes which are so horrific and terrible, you can't help but feel for the parents. I think this movie is just great. 10/10

It's impossible to review a movie in a single line, but the story of what happened to the Armenian Genocide should be the most important lesson of the modern world. For the record, it was the world's first genocide. The biggest shame of the story is the Turkish government's response to it. Instead of following the historical facts of this tragedy and fighting for justice, they decided to turn a blind eye. Yet it was also a lesson to not give up. We have to hold onto the truth and not let others make up their own story. We have to fight against injustice. We have to stand up to those who do not want to see us on this earth. We need to be stronger than those who use hate and ignorance to gain power. We have to stay faithful to the truth and our history is our history. So, on a personal note, I feel like this movie will be with me for a long time.

this is the worst film ever made in my opinion and not because its bad, its just because i feel it had a very loose structure and would have benefited from an earlier release.i have seen it about 4 times and i still cant get it out of my mind. i know it isn't for everyone, i know there are few people who like it and a few who hate it but to me it just doesnt have a clear story. if you have seen "the year of the mountain" you should know what i mean. i think you will find it pretty entertaining as well.the point of the film is to show the story of the warrior king and how he became so powerful in a small tribal group.you have to be able to appreciate the film for its simplicity. so to me, it has nothing to do with history or a good story.it just seems like a very bad film.and that is because it is so poorly made.anyways i have to agree with other people that there is so much wrong with it.i would not recommend it for anyone but it is a great film to show how many misconceptions about people are.i guess if you want to see it, good luck.

This film is not for everyone, especially people who are easily offended. I'm not a big fan of romantic comedies or movies that make you feel sick, and even this film did make me feel sick to my stomach. But it was very powerful and touching. This is not a film to bring the kids to. It has lots of social commentary. It's a dark story about a father's struggle to care for his ailing mother. But it's also a strong story about love, loyalty, friendship, and selflessness. And it has a great performance by Jack Nicholson, who's been in a lot of great movies, but this is the first film in which he's really stood out. His acting is very strong and emotional. He's very good. I don't think this is his best film, but it's certainly a must see.

Degenerate is a wonderful film. It is a truthful and real look at an uncomfortable reality in the 1920s and 1930s. It is about the corruption of social mores, social morals, and morals of the time in the names of the things that mattered to those who created them. As such it is a great film and I'm glad that it is being put out on DVD.

We may be as evil as we want to be, but in this film we witness the essence of human nature. A man who was once afraid to kill himself for fear of rejection, is now a man who has put his fears to rest, for his wife and children. A woman who was once abused by her husband, becomes a wonderful woman in her own right. The man who is still haunted by his fear of death, is still haunted by it, and still finds his way to find happiness, despite what he fears. A man who has been dishonored by his employer, finds the strength and the courage to rise up and help his family. And a man who has been burdened by shame and guilt, realizes that he can turn it all around. This film captures the essence of human nature, and the power of forgiveness. Truly a profound film. I highly recommend this film.

That's what the opening sequence of "The Thirteenth Floor" really is. You never know what you're going to see next. A little bit of "Escape From New York," a bit of "The Matrix," a bit of "War Of The Worlds," and then we're in "Mad Max." Yes, a horror movie. But it's also a great story. The story of a man in the 1940s and 1950s living in a Victorian house. I was originally going to say "Mad Max" and the house itself, but I don't want to spoil it. But really, it's not really a film about the house. There's a big war going on in the world. What's going on in the house? I won't say anything. Just see the opening sequence. If you want to see a movie that will stay with you, "The Thirteenth Floor" is the movie for you.

This is the most beautifully-told story ever told. Not only are the performances wonderful, but the story is so moving that even the smallest detail in the film is truly moving. The casting is perfect, the settings and the locations are perfect, and the setting is perfect. It's a perfect film. If you love movies, this one is for you. If you don't love movies, this is a perfect film for you.

After being introduced to the great Thomas Halket (John Hurt) the film opens with the declaration of his distinguished place in Hollywood and the beginnings of the struggle to improve his stardom. Before this, however, we discover that the quality of his films is decreasing. We see a young, promising film director, Martin Ansin (Michael York) who wants to start out on the path to becoming a major Hollywood director. He has a new idea, what to do with a character he has created, but he lacks the money to do it. To compensate he hires a young and promising actress, Alice (Sara Paxton) to play the part of the younger version of his wife. This film is directed by the great Martin Scorsese, the man who created the masterpieces Taxi Driver and Raging Bull. I was very impressed with this film and it is a must-see film for anyone interested in the film industry. Scorsese knows how to tell a story, and here he takes us on the journey of an aspiring director who loses his way in Hollywood and decides to take a break. The film is a marvelous lesson about the difficulties of changing your life and realizing what is most important. The only complaint I have about the film is that it is too long, it might have been better if the film was shorter. The film is not perfect, but it is definitely one of the best films I have ever seen.

I enjoyed this movie as much as I enjoyed the original. Yes, the new setting is a bit off, but I was still pulled in, and I was still sad that they left the original. The story is fast paced and well worth watching. The acting was well done. Even the kids were good in this one. It's an amazing story that all of us can relate to. I give it a 9 out of 10.

First of all, I'd like to say that I'm not a movie critic or anything like that. In fact, I don't watch movies very much, but this film has stuck with me for quite some time now. The plot in and of itself is simply amazing, if you go into it thinking that it's an original tale of a French child and her two sisters that's not really relevant to the general story of World War I, you'll probably be happy that you thought about it for one second. Now, as for the film itself, I must say that I thought the cast was pretty great. I'm usually not a big fan of American actors in film, but everyone did a very good job. It was especially nice to see some familiar faces as Anna Paquin, Julie Delpy and Viola Davis. All of whom are of French descent. It was also nice to see actors like Gabriel Byrne and Eva Green, who played James and Jules, and Gary Oldman, who plays Robert. I don't really have any big complaints about the movie in general, but when it comes to the performances of the children, the one thing that really stands out is Viggo Mortensen. He is absolutely fantastic in this film. He is very believable and scary in this film, which is really what I like about his work. The best performance in my opinion was probably by Russell Crowe. The way he portrays Robert is absolutely chilling. I think he did a fantastic job, and as for Julia Roberts, she was definitely one of the standout performances. The way that she portrays her character is so creepy and so real, and I think it really helped to make her character all the more believable. I think she really redeemed herself for her performance in 'Hugo', and I really hope that she is picked for another film in the near future. The acting of everyone else was just as great as Crowe's, but I think that the real standout in the film was the young Ben Kingsley. The way that he played Charles Vincent is just absolutely incredible. The way he is acting is so natural and so creepy, I couldn't help but to feel a lot of dread and dread at the same time. The way that he is portraying Charles Vincent is also amazing, and I think that he was the one to do that. You can see that he does a fantastic job, especially as he doesn't really do any of the "acting" that you normally see him doing. It was just him being himself, and that was very impressive. I think that Kingsley is one of the most underrated actors that you could possibly find. If you are a big fan of his, and want to see him in a really good film, this film is definitely the one for you. I just hope that he doesn't get more roles like this, because he has been really excellent in just about everything he's done since 'The Mighty Boosh'. Overall, I loved this film, and I strongly recommend it. Even if you don't like the idea of the movie, I promise that you'll be entertained by it. I highly recommend this movie to any fan of horror films, as it is definitely a film that you should see. I give this movie a 9.5/10. It's one of my favorite horror films of all time. I give it an excellent 9.5/10.

First of all, I'd like to say that I thought this film was great. I saw the film in a pre-screening in New York and enjoyed it very much. The story is wonderful and really makes you care about the characters. It was a beautiful film. Although I didn't find the story to be all that original, I liked how it showed us how the world really was. The music was wonderful, and it really made you feel like you were there. I think everyone should see this film. It is a great movie that makes you feel like you are there. 9/10

The winner of the Academy Award for Best Documentary short is a difficult award to come by, and is nearly as difficult to recognize as a winner. I am quite certain that most films that are nominated for the award will not be recognized for the best documentary, and that is why "The Vietnam War" is so important. It is a film that all people of any political persuasion can identify with, whether they are pro-war, anti-war, or undecided. The film does not use sensationalized images or extremely graphic images, instead focusing on the issues with as much sincerity as possible. The film is not supposed to shock or surprise viewers, but rather to provide an accurate portrayal of the situation that Vietnam veterans were facing on a daily basis during the war. The film is based on an experience of one Vietnam veteran, and most of the events in the film are based on the life experiences of others. One reason that this film won the Oscar was because the director, Stephen J. Reilly, did not shy away from showing the horrors that the war brought to the people of Vietnam, in order to tell a story. Many people saw the films that came out in the 1990s with Tom Hanks or Russell Crowe, but the directors of those films did not use sensationalized images. The only exception to this is "A Beautiful Mind" (1997) which used extremely graphic images, and showed a very positive portrayal of the mind of genius. "The Vietnam War" is an excellent film, and is easily one of the best films of the decade.

Greatly underrated and underrated even today. With few exceptions, I have always been a fan of the German actor Andrei Tarkovski. When I heard about the producer taking on the project of a re-telling of the Austrian play, I knew I had to watch it. What I found was an incredible achievement in production, acting, and dialogue. The opening narration is so beautiful, I am not sure I can comprehend it without tears. The tone is so very understated that the words in between almost seem to go unnoticed. Tarkovski and his great actor husband, Christian Borrelli, have delivered a very believable and deeply felt performance. I could not have hoped for more. The true story is very well handled by director Oded Krotosch. The casting is excellent. First the odd couple, then the father, then the son, then the granddaughter. The actors portrayed the various stages of love and relationships very well. The story is quite complex. It is interesting how the father returns to his father's death, and this part of the story is handled very well. Finally, and this is what truly sets this film apart, is the dialogue. The lines between Borrelli and Tarkovski are very accurate and beautifully delivered. The themes of exile, love, and forgiveness are so very well expressed in a film that in some ways transcends any other drama I have seen. I can not believe that this film has been overlooked so long, or so very nearly. Truly a great film.

When I heard of the film's making, I was immediately skeptical. After all, the trailer does not do the film justice. But then again, I don't believe that a film should be more "rounded" than it is. My fear was confirmed when I sat in the theater, and the film gave me the creeps. It had me looking at the screen, gasping for air, shaking with goose-bumps, and even groaning with pleasure when the film came to a close. So, I guess the question is - who's going to love this film? As for me, I was deeply moved by this story, and I'd like to thank everyone who made this movie happen. I was not aware that there were other films with the same theme, and I was pleasantly surprised. I have yet to see "The Last Kiss" by Argento, and I hope that he will someday come out with something that I would enjoy watching. As for this film, I'd have to say that, for the love of God, check it out. You'll like it!

I really enjoyed this film! I've seen quite a few "original" films lately but this one is different. It's got an interesting story that keeps the audience entertained. The characters are not all very well-developed but you know who they are and you're sure to root for them. I especially liked the way the roles were played by the actors. You can't go wrong with this film. You'll know who they are after a while, if you pay attention!

If you're a Coney Island enthusiast, then you must love this movie. They do what no other movie has ever done before. They show the people who lived there in the early 80's. This movie makes me feel like I was there. Even though the movie is centered around the Coney Island, it's actually a love story about two people who grew up together and one of them in the 70's. One of them will go back to the island for her mother. It's great to see the people who lived there like George "The King" Washington and that was the person that really played a big role in the history of Coney Island. I highly recommend it. 10/10

I have read the book several times and I've never looked at it as a movie before, but I think the movie was great. I was just shocked at how well this movie was written and acted. The acting is second to none. The casting is amazing. It's a good story and great acting. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who likes movies with an edge of horror or action. The one thing I didn't like was how it was so bloody, but I would recommend that you watch it, because it is very dark. It's very graphic at times, but it's not a blood spatter movie. The movie is more of a thriller and has a very good storyline. It's a very intelligent and well written movie. It's a movie you will not regret watching, and I highly recommend it to everyone.
