The Spanish Prisoner

The Spanish Prisoner

I love David Mamet but I was shocked by how great Steve Martin is as a dramatic actor. If you like complicated and though-provoking puzzle-like films 'The Spanish Prisoner' is highly, highly recommended. Very intriguing and absorbing 'The Spanish Prisoner' is a must see.

  • What do you do if you are the last human on the Earth? I love to see other people's answers to this question. Note: You're not watching this for the pointless ending, but for everything leading up to it.

  • What folks in one part of Los Angeles do when they hear that a nuclear missile is on its way. This movie is dated, but the human reactions are not.

  • Historical movies are some of my favorite and this is no exception. Plus this also has secrets and lies!

  • While all the seasons of LOST are phenomenal, season one has a polar bear in it giving me a certain bias.

The content of the movie is not suitable for kids so reserve it for date night.

  • This movie horrified me. It was so good and it annoyed me when people used to tell me it wasn't scary, because they are obviously lying. Also Mischa Barton has a great performance in this movie.

  • This is such a great movie. Truly. It is rare to find movies that touch on such important topics and do it in a way that both entertains and educates. Rent this movie or better yet own it!

  • I'm such the thriller fan. I can remember the first times I saw Psycho and The Birds and I instantly loved Hitchcock and his work. It's great to have the whole collection to really appreciate his "masterpieces"

Screenwriters rarely develop a distinctive voice that can be recognized from movie to movie, but the ornate imagination of Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation) has made him a unique and much-needed cinematic presence. In Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, a guy decides to have the memories of his ex-girlfriend erased after she's had him erased from her own memory--but midway through the procedure, he changes his mind and struggles to hang on to their experiences together. In other hands, the premise of memory-erasing would become a trashy science-fiction thriller; Kaufman, along with director Michel Gondry, spins this idea into a funny, sad, structurally complex, and simply enthralling love story that juggles morality, identity, and heartbreak with confident skill. The entire cast--Jim Carrey, Kate Winslet, Kirsten Dunst, Elijah Wood, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Wilkinson, and more--give superb performances, carefully pitched so that cleverness never trumps feeling. A great movie. --Bret Fetzer

  • This is an amazing Peter Jackson film (pre Lord of the RIngs) Jackson's career trajectory really leaves me confused. He went from gory low brow B movies like Bad Taste to mainstream fair like Heavenly Creatures to Lord of the Ring... This is an amazing Peter Jackson film (pre Lord of the RIngs) Jackson's career trajectory really leaves me confused. He went from gory low brow B movies like Bad Taste to mainstream fair like Heavenly Creatures to Lord of the Rings. Consistency, please. Heavenly Creatures is at first a sweet movie about the friendship between two teen girls that moves to being a little odd, to awkward, to disturbing. One of these girls is crazy and takes the other one to crazytown with her.

He hasn't slept in a full year and is on the edge of madness. Which doesn't go over well when you're working with heavy machinery. Needless to say, strange things begin to happen and he can't discern who's real and who's a hallucination. Can you?

Every film he makes is in a different classic genre, and he encapsulates each one perfectly while adding his own twist to it. Shallow Grave was his first film and paired with screenwriter John Hodge and producer Andrew Macdonald (the trio would go on to make The Beach, A Life Less Ordinary and The Beach), he has created a wonderfully Hitchcockian stylish and suspenseful dark drama. Three wonderfully elitist yuppies (played by Kerry Fox, Ewan Macgregor and Christopher Eccleston) need a fourth to share their amazing flat. When their choice, the mysterious Hugo (Keith Allen) overdoses on his first night there, the trio find a suitcase stuffed with cash in his room and decides to dispose of the body, keeping the money for themselves. Then things get really interesting... It's a clever, excellently cast film about jealousy, ego and manipulations. The three leads are pitch-perfect and Boyle's eye for visuals saturate the film in shart angles, rich textures and lighting.

LOVE it.

When the show started I got an episode here and there and decided the show was junk. A plane crashing in the middle of the ocean and leaving survivors, mystical black smoke haunting the island, polar bears, flashbacks, these superhuman-like "others", along with many other details were enough for me to pass on. However, I ended up watching the first several episodes in a row on DVD and was completely captivated by it and have been ever since. Television hasn't seen good writing like this on a Sci Fi show since...well ever! Buy the first season and you'll be hooked.

This flick kinda reminds me of Very Bad Things in which one transgression uncontrollably spirals into a series of more bad deeds. Without getting into too much detial, two brothers in desperate need of money conspire to pull off a seemingly innocuous crime against their parents. Things quickly go awry in this suspense/drama.

  • When you see this abstractly shaped key that opens the box with the people who ate too many shrooms you'll know the deed has been done.

  • Great suspense thriller with losts of twists and turns. "The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist." The movie did a great job living up to this key line.

Memento is that DVD that I am always willing to watch again whenever I encounter a friend who hasn't seen it yet. One of the reasons I can enjoy it over and over is that I seem to have some sort of memory loss problem so I can never remember what comes next and it's always new to me no matter how many times I've seen it before.

  • A very believable representation of how people might respond to something as simple and scary as losing electricity (and radio, and TV, and ...). One of my favorite studies of civilization falling apart.

The scene in this movie where people watch from rural Kansas as nuclear missiles blast off toward the Sovient Union gave me chills. I remembered this scene when I looked out my office window last month and saw a similar smoke trail blasting out over the ocean. I had a scary five minutes while I searched on Google and found that it was a scheduled rocket launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base.
