Best in Show is an amusing commentary on human relations with their dogs, as well as with each other. It is not a film everyone will enjoy as it’s employs a very different style of comedy. Still, if you are ready for an absurd and sincere look at the human mirror, this film is a blast.
The Dish proves that a tiny story from a large epic can serve as a delightful dish when prepared and served correctly.
Billy Elliot bullies us into caring about the story, despite showing relatively little melodramatic sentiments. The characters, though somewhat stereotyped, are well-balanced, including the presence of the missing dead mother. The rougher the story becomes, the softer it gets.
Ever since seeing The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, I became a Julian Schnabel fan. Having him make Before Night Falls, is doing justice to Reinaldo Arenas – no one better than an artist to tell an artist’s story. Led by a magnificent Javier Bardem, the cast gives an excellent, heartfelt performance. The film, based on the autobiography of Arenas by the same name, and published after his pre-mature death, celebrates Arenas' life, while also painting in vivid colors the horrors of Cuba under Castro. Seeing this film brought the following quote to my mind: "The most radical revolutionary will become a conservative the day after the revolution." (Hannah Arendt, 1906 - 1975).
