Movie Description:
Mia, an aspiring actress, serves lattes to movie stars in between auditions and Sebastian, a jazz musician, scrapes by playing cocktail party gigs in dingy bars, but as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart.

    Comedian Bill Maher's Tony Award-nominated Broadway standup show, Bill Maher: Victory Begins at Home, will return to New York, July 17-19, 2003. The final performance at the Hudson Theatre (which is not technically a Broadway house though it's in the midtown theatre district) will be filmed live for HBO. In the show, Maher addresses contemporary political, social and cultural topics -- Iraq, President Bush and the so called Axis of Evil. The opinionated Maher said about Victory Begins at Home: "We've heard everything about the War on Terrorism except what we can actually do to help win it. The government used to do that for us through propaganda (the positive kind) posters, so taking my cue from the great old posters of World War I and World War II ('Loose Lips Sink Ships,' 'Buy War Bonds,' 'Plant a Victory Garden,' etc.) I commissioned artists to paint the posters our government today should be putting out to help us win this war." —[email protected]

    Henri Danglard, proprietor of the fashionable (but bankrupt) cafe 'Le Paravent Chinois' featuring his mistress, belly dancer Lola, goes slumming in Montmarte (circa 1890) where the then-old-fashioned cancan is still danced. There, he conceives the idea of reviving the cancan as the feature of a new, more popular establishment...and meets Nini, a laundress and natural dancer, whom he hopes to star in his new show. But a tangled maze of jealousies intervenes... —Rod Crawford

    Bunuel's first feature has more of a plot than Un chien andalou (1929), but it's still a pure Surrealist film, so this is only a vague outline. A man and a woman are passionately in love with each other, but their attempts to consummate that passion are constantly thwarted by their families, the Church, and bourgeois society. —Michael Brooke


Bad but in a really bad way

A film that fails the Turing test - in reverse. Or something. What I mean is that after the first 5 minutes the unpleasant sensation crawled over me that I was participating in a rather sinister experiment, watching a movie made by a computer which was testing me by attempting to provoke a human-like response. Stuffed with algorithms culled from proper movies and musicals, the computer has generated a script and a set of scenarios based on user-preference and targeted directly at my very own demographic! Its eerie; the songs sound like songs but aren't quite, the dialogue sounds like people but not quite, nothing that happens has a real reason or point other than to crank through the plot, the jazz looks like jazz and sounds like jazz but isn't, quite, and the set-ups calculated to provoke an emotional effect left me untouched and feeling slightly hollow. What has been thrown, hurled and heaved at this film is Oscar-seeking acting, Oscar-seeking direction and Oscar-seeking technical twiddling. And hey ho and guess what, it got Oscars. Its the apotheosis of junk food, finally. You don't even need to make the effort to chew; it can now just squirt directly into you via the eyes and ears, a simulacrum of nourishment, over-flavoured glop taking the name of real love, real music, real acting and real life in vain.
Damien Chazelle is a young director who loves and knows movies, fromFederico Fellini to Jacques Demy. Hallellujah! Ryan Gosling and EmmaStone go back to inspire us forward. What's more surprising thananything else is the feel of amateurishness in the dancing in thesinging. So refreshing not to have a sleek but empty experience. DamianChazelle' Whiplash was a brilliant preview of forthcoming attractions.I would love to see a thriller directed by Chazelle, something likeShadow Of A Doubt or even a glossy damsel in distress story likeMidnight Lace. That's what happens when we discover a new and startlingtalent. You want to see him do everything. I have a feeling this youngartist will.
Writer/Director Damien Chazelle, who already had a nice career goingfor him, explodes into the Bigtime with this delightful, mesmerizing,and completely unexpected ode to Tinseltown.

The opening sequence (satirized on the Golden Globes) really does notdo the rest of the film justice. It is as if the cast from the FAMEremake grew up, had children of their own, and then those childrenhijacked the Santa Monica freeway to do a 10 minute flash-mob dancesequence.

From that point on, the film is hypnotic.

We segue to a love story as pure as anything since the great dramas ofthe 1940s. If the film had been in B&W, you would almost have expectedto see Bette Davis in a 3-hankie tear jerker.

Except for the musical interludes, of course, which are pitch perfectand totally wonderful.

Gosling is surprising as a leading man expected to do song and dance,but he delivers the goods.

Stone, who was supposed to be "the next big thing" after Easy A (2010),steals the film and possibly the hearts of the audience as well. Theawards should flow like water, and she will deserve every one.

As I said, deep in the DNA this is an ode to Hollywood. The filmindustry has always had issues with endings -- back in the day theywould film several different endings per picture -- and then decide atthe last minute which to use. Here Chazelle pays homage to that bygiving us an alternate ending, along with the "real" ending, along witha closing sequence designed to remind everyone that nothing inHollywood is actually real, but everything still can be really fun.

Destined to be a classic. Recommended.
