And if this is not enough. The film has the most iconic villain of all time according American Film Institute. EVE HARRINGTON is at 23rd position in AFI’s list of 100 years … 100 Heroes and Villains.
This is a restored version, you wont even find it on #youknowhere. Probably your only chance to see this classic on Big screen.
British Film Institute’s ‘poll of greatest films (2012) lists ‘Tokyo Story’ as the third best film ever. Yosujiro Ozu is known for his static camera, camera that never moves. It sits like a dead observer. The pacing is slow. ‘neglected elderly parents’ is the theme which we have seen so many time, but all those films essentially started with ‘Tokyo Story’. Ironically enough Tokyo Story itself is inspired by an American film ‘ Make My Way For Tomorrow’ (1937). The best thing about Tokyo story are the emotions. But I found it a little melodramatic at some places.
And Costa Gavras is the master of political thrillers, with human emotions affecting lives of common man.
The King of Comedy
It is time to watch a restored film from a man, who is behind the restoration of many great films, one of the most celebrated filmmaker of our times , the one and only Mr Martin Scorsese. If you are a fan-boy of Scorsese, you cant miss this. This is the restored version and probably your only chance to watch it on the big screen, and they way Mr Martin Scorsese wanted you to see Robert De Niro as a comic . Dare not miss it.
The Spirit of the Beehive
“A sensitive seven-year-old girl living a small village in 1940 rural Spain is traumatized after viewing James Whale’s “Frankenstein” and drifts into her own fantasy world.”
And it has a rating of 7.9 out 8000 odd votes.
This must be something indeed.
