What Movies Are You Watching Lately - Page 991
^ I really enjoyed it. I took my children (aged 9 and 11) and they enjoyed it, too.
I was a bit concerned that they might be bored by the frequent meetings, but they found it both interesting and amusing.
As for me, I found it to be an interesting insight into the way that the Japanese government works.
A visually arresting epic that draws you in and unfolds at a perfectly measured pace that deals with the big issues of belief,faith and purpose with cinematic elegance.
A lot more subtle in its dynamics than The Last Temptation.
The cast is first rate with some dynamic performances.

This is a fantastic documentary well more of a visual long song to the Australian film industry.
Highly engaging, entertaining and a fascinating insight into a remarkable career.
This has not aged as well as I expected.
The camera is constantly using clever shots, either shooting from below eye level, or through obstacles, which I felt becomes tiring after a while.
John Barry's soundtrack is good though.
Liked it but felt it was extremely hard at times.
I think I still prefer Oldboy and the Handmaiden.
