Would have been improved by adding the Benny Hill music to some of the scenes.

The english dub on this film is particularly bad. The poorly delivered dialogue actually alters the characterization of some of the characters, especially Django. I'd definitely recommend going out of your way to find the original Italian. This is really good film though. Thoroughly entertaining throughout. Franco Nero gives a really solid performance. The violence works on an entertainment level as well as a narrative and tonal level.

This film is successful in short spurts but falls flat more times than not. The central conceit has plenty of potential so it is a shame that the film doesn't come close to realizing it. I found it difficult to care about what happened to any of the characters in the movie and the ending doesn't work at all because of it.

This is a wonderful film. I appreciate the honest look it takes at the situation of women in Iran. Not often do we see a film that dissects the gender relations of a country through an avenue such as sports and sporting events. Panahi sees and portrays the society of his county with such clarity. Great movie.

It certainly is a well made film. There are some beautiful moments and fine performances all around. The plot didn't strike me to be as powerful as the film would like to think it is. It is a bit too melodramatic and maybe a little long, but definitely worth checking out. It doesn't deserve some of the hate (or backlash) that it received after winning Best Picture.

This is a film that would have benefited if it committed more to the underlying strangeness a little more. While not without a few moments of genuine creepiness, the rest of the film doesn't really provide the viewer with anything to latch on to. It all leads to a title which is far more exciting than the film itself, unfortunately.

Looking strictly at cinematography, I thought The Thin Red Line was superior to Saving Private Ryan.

If you watch all three of them in a row, There is an incredible power to each scene. Ray crafts a brilliant trilogy. If you haven't seen them yet, go see them now.

I can't help but feel that the pacing was off during the first half of the movie. Good movie but certainly not great.
