    In Babette's Feast the first line of a hymn, "Jerusalem, my heart's true home" creates an underlying motif throughout the film. The hymn indicates that an individual's home exists within the heart. In his Sermon on the Mount, Jesus commands his people not to store up for themselves treasures on earth, but to store for themselves treasures in heaven. "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also" (Matthew 6: 21). For Babette and Philippa, their treasures are their passions for their ...

  • Great Job As Mallory Knox
    549 words
    Natural Born Killers" is one weird-ass movie. With the weird actors and funky camera movements. It's unforgettable. A trip into the mind of two serial killers. The film is real good, but I think it might be even better if you were drunk. You might be a little used to everyone acting weird and all the psychedelic colors. But since I am not old enough to do that yet, I'll just review as how I saw it. Mallory (Juliette Lewis) has a horrible life. Her brother is a little jerk, her father molests her...
  • Great Film
    612 words
    I must say that this film is very traumatizing. There are some images in this film that will be burned and scarred into my mind for as long as I live. I have seen many holocaust films, but no one was as near as dramatic and depicting as Night and Fog. However I did like the theme of this movie. It is very sad but yet realistic. Our minds are murky and dull. We tend to only remember the important situation in our lives. Yet we don't remember the importance of our own history. I say OUR history be...

    Ron Howard has given us a film that's so different from the formula-oriented fare we receive from Hollywood, that this film, although studio born and bred, plays very much as an independent film. The madness of John Nash is approached by the director, and the writer, Akiva Golds man, with great honesty and restraint. The production has a look that tells us we are seeing the events in the life of this crazy mathematician as it really happened. Nothing seems to be out of place here with the right ...

  • Mgm Buster Keaton Feature
    1,240 words
    The Cameraman (Rough Draft) The Cameraman (1928), an MGM Buster Keaton feature, is one of the last truly great feature films of the silent era. From the artistic balance it finds between the simplicity of an all-too-familiar storyline and the complexity of technique and cinematography, to the very-entertaining and captivating performances of its actors, the film that was nearly lost to the annals of motion-picture history is a multi-faceted gem that is joyous to watch. Simplicity is one of the b...

  • Ingredients For A Great Epic Film

Scotlands quest for freedom from the tyranny of Englands rule had been a dream that the main character, William Wallace, made a reality for his countrymen. This breath-taking movie perfec...
  • Great Camera Work And Other Technical Aspects

    Just imagine it, 14,000 people in an arena trying to have a good time at a boxing match, and a major political figure is shot. Everyone is a suspect. Sounds intriguing, but yet Brian De Palma's new thriller does have its flaws. While the technical aspects and acting are state-of-the-art, Snake Eyes has some minor defects in the plot which hurt the film's overall value. Set in Atlantic City, Rick Santoro (Nicolas Cage) is a flamboyant and corrupt police detective who has been known for taking bri...
