Re: “Bruce Dern gets shorted by Alexander Payne's Nebraska

As too often happens, someone who gets paid to watch movies feels compelled to make it way too complicated. Great flick. Trust the Cannes people, not Mr. Wilson.

Re: “David O. Russell's screechy '70s costume party American Hustle arrives dead as disco

David O. Russell was born in 1958, so he should have some memory of the '70s. As a teenager in that decade (as Russell was), I mainly remember T-shirts, blue jeans and long, straight hair parted in the middle -- on both genders.

I don't remember a garish parade of grotesque, overdressed freaks. That sounds more like the '80s: the decade of big hair, big shoulder pads and unbridled materialism.

Aside from watching GOODFELLAS and CASINO (and BOOGIE NIGHTS and MAGNOLIA), Russell's research must have consisted of studying photos taken at Studio 54 circa 1978. But, of course, most people in the real world weren't hanging out at a snooty Manhattan disco.

Re: “Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow: Immerse yourself in Anselm Kiefer's art, to the exclusion of almost all else

Born at the end of the Second World War, Kiefer and critical reflection on dangerous myths that have propelled the Third Reich in power. Combining art and literature, painting and sculpture, the artist engages German history and ancestral epics of life, death, and the cosmos to reinforce the lessons of the past, good to see this film

Re: “The hit documentary Blackfish has a message as dubious as its methods

Wow these comments are awesome, really nice to see some good debating for once instead of the tunnel vision. Anyone interested in (since he was brought up so much) Keiko's successful rehabilitation but failed release should give the New York Times video "The Whale Who Would not be Freed." Talks at the end how the backlash of Blackfish has created this new Free Willy effect. How the funding for the sea-pen ran out and such. Not an option for the remainder of whales in captivity. Again really nice to see educational and articulate debate going on, well done.

In 1923 the executive council of the American Federation of Labor issued an address to the American people after an exhaustive investigation of the effects of the Volstead Act. It was shown by this investigation that there had been–––

A general disregard of the law among all classes of people, including those who made the law.

Creation of thousands of moonshiners among both country and city dwellers.

The creation of an army of bootleggers.

An amazing increase in the traffic in poisons and deadly concoctions and drugs.

An increased rate of insanity, blindness, and crime among the users of these concoctions and drugs.

Re: “The Lone Ranger is a weird, thoughtful summer blockbuster

The Lone Ranger actor Johnny Depp is Tonto character was, is and remains a legendary figure of American culture. What we have not had them but many can say hand on heart that I once even saw ex-Texan became vigilante and reliable friend, Tonto. Looks like Pirates of the Caribbean team felt sense of a successful franchise, gods and superheroes there was room for an Indian with a crow on his head and a lawyer landed in the Wild West. The big problem with this film is the critics that gave the earth to mandretea scenario concocted trio Justin Haytham, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio gang but taking an idea and instead divide it into three films, thought that it's better to work as a pilot, a movie that I recommend to everyone a lot of action, good to see.

Re: “Too rough for PBS, legendary doc Seventeen remains one of the best movies ever made about American youth

" ... the pantheon of films that proved to be too much for PBS."

I still want to see the never-aired political satire that Woody Allen made for PBS in the early '70s. They reportedly caved in to pressure from the Nixon administration.

Re: “Blue Is the Warmest Color: The face, not the gaze, tells the story

"But you wouldn't know it from the juvenile press coverage, which started out gawking at the movie's pivotal sex scene, went on to cluck over the possible exploitation of the lead actresses, then of late has convened panels of gay women to assess how technically accurate the sex scenes are."

Most laughable are the debates about whether parents should take their kids to see the movie. It's rated NC-17. Unless their kids are 17 or older, they're not supposed to be admitted, even with a parent.
