5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! What a Brilliant film!, Dec 16 2013
WOW! was the first word that came to mind as the credits rolled on this truly fantastic film! The dialogue is some of the best I have ever heard in a movie. Thought provoking, gritty, uncomfortable & yes, BRILLIANTLY REAL! The writing is a work of genius! We also get some great acting and a first rate production that makes this film the very best of the "Before" series films.

This is what great film making is all about!

BRILLIANT!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Doors at their best, Jan. 1 2013
This review is from: An American Prayer (Audio CD)
This is truly the Doors at their best. Jim Morrison recorded his poetry on his 27th birthday then moved to Paris and later died at the ripe age of 27. Morrison was a poet & the Doors were one of the greatest bands ever to come out of America. American prayer is Jim's recorded voice of his poetry set to music by the remaining Doors is simply brilliant, hypnotic, reflective, beautiful and pure bliss.

A unique and perfectly executed piece of art.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! A masterpiece!, Dec 10 2012
An enormous film & an enormous achievement in film making! A surreal exploration of life, love & death. It's grand in it's size but it's most remarkable in how well it captures life's small bits & pieces. Perhaps not an easy film to view but if you are willing to take the ride this is an extraordinary achievement in film making.

uber cerebral screen writer Charlie Kaufman makes his directorial debut in this most fascinating film.

Highly recommend it for film lovers, it's a must see!

5.0 out of 5 stars May take a second viewing to really get into it., Dec 10 2012
The movie is a cerebral feast that may not appeal to a wider audience but it's taut story is incredibly cleaver in challenging the viewer and will have you taking sides all the while challenging your own doubts about the side you have chosen. Doubt is the perfect title for this film. Doubt encapsulates every character & every situation in this masterfully told tale.

Absolutely marvelous acting in every single scene of this masterful film. Philip Seymour Hoffman & Meryl Streep deliver brilliant performances as we have come accustomed too. Amy Adams is particularly good as well & Viola Davis is brilliant again.

If you like watching the finest actors at the top of their game Doubt is for you. If you like a very cerebral film that mines it's theme to a depth rarely seen then this movie is an absolute delight.

Highly recommend Doubt!

5.0 out of 5 stars It takes several viewings to really appreciate!, Dec 10 2012
The grooviest, dudeist, most far out, most beloved cult film of all time!

Yah... and "that's just like your opinion man".

The Big Lebowski is a film that seems to require multiple viewings to unveil it's brilliance to most of us. With each successive viewing of this charmer of a film it reveals it's subtle genius while revealing another layer of it's quirky comedic bliss.

The Big Lebowski is a unique and special film that gets better the more times you have the pleasure of viewing it & the more you view it the funnier it gets.

Jeff Bridges delivers his best performance ever in this role. "I'm the Dude, so that's what you call me. That or his Dudeness... or Duder..or ah ... you know, El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing." Bridges comedic genius is as good as you will ever see.

The script is an absolute work of genius and the cast is stellar across the board with each one of them turning in some of the most memorable performances caught on film.

The Big Lebowski is one of the most quoted films of this generation and has become it's biggest cult film.

What a pure joy to see a work of genius such as this one!
