Be Kind Rewind Reviews:

'Be Type Rewind' has already become one of my favorite movies of the year. It's funny. It's charming. It's nostalgic. It's awkward. It's special and it's moving. The entrance of DVDs to our lives have lead to the rapid extinction of video cassettes but does one remember the days of renting, collecting and watching those large tapes? Rewinding them and forwarding them? Something tiny but one that I search fascinating. While 'Be Type Rewind' pays respect to that generation, it's also a unbelievable tribute to film-making in general. All the classic films and blockbusters this movie refers to are some of the most memorable films that played during the VHS days and, in a way, 'Be Type Rewind' is a magnificent homage to those films. Just watch all the sweded 'refilming' of, for example, 'Driving Miss Daisy' with Danny Glover and Mia Farrow, 'Ghostbusters' and 'Rush Hour 2' with Jack Black and Mos Def...and so many more hilarious surprises. 'Be Type Rewind' also explores what it is about cinema that fascinate the ordinary man.Gondry's writing is just as nice as his direction. Everything fits together excellently. The comedy and drama blend smoothly. Michel Gondry's screenplay is impeccable. The dialogues are laugh out loud and never out of place. The characters are genuinely heartwarming, goofy and lovable.The performances are heartfelt and fantastic. A wacky Jack Black, an endearing Mia Farrow (who's a science fiction fan), a very impressive Mos Def (I was very impressed by his comic timing), a humbly naive Danny Glover, a vivacious Melonie Diaz, Sigourney Weaver as an inspector in charge (with a touch of comedy) and many more talented actors create a terrific ensemble.Gondry has tackled a lot of themes like a powerful sense of community, people's love for movies, folks being accustomed to old technology (as a effect to which they sometimes have difficulty moving on to more modernized sources), reviving loved artists who have vanished into oblivion and the overall sense of doing something nice together (like the last film on Fat Waller's life). He says the storyline skillfully. I liked that it ended on a bittersweet note but somewhat ambiguously. I was having so much fun and laughing out loud so many times that I didn't even care if it bothered another people.Many folks seem to have trashed this film because it wasn't like 'Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind'. I'd like to say those folks to receive over it. How can folks even start to compare too fully various movies and then call one of them trash for not being like the other? I love both films and to me, with 'Be Type Rewind' Gondry proves to be a versatile director and my appreciation for him as a filmmaker has only increased.


Michel Gondry is a very talented filmmaker especially when it comes to visuals. His melody videos and movies go beyond easy video marvels into a globe of easy visual trickery. This is something Gondry is very nice at. Furthermore, he has a do it yourself mantra when it comes to filmaking. He's not into the marvels of CGI. He's more into what you can do without it.But it takes a tiny more than visual trickery to create a movie a success. Be Type Rewind is a prime example. The movie begins off well enough. Mos Def supports run a video shop owned by Danny Glover's character. The shop is probably one of the last remaining shops catering to VHS. Jack Black is Mos Def's left of center mate who works at an electrical plant. Through some plan to sabotage the plant, he becomes magnetic, erasing all the tapes.Our heroes are forced to re-record the films and do it through a process named "sweding," producing 10-15 minute versions of the film, using a wide array of do it yourself techniques that Gondry himself has utilized in his work. An example is a easy trick where filming through a fanatic makes the movie look old. All of this is fun. The method the guys test to truncate the film's stories into a tiny time or their lack of knowledge regarding some movies like Driving Miss Daisy. the crude results are fun and are prime examples of why we love Michel Gondry.The downside to the movie is the script, penned by Gondry. Clearly, the movie is built around the sweded films. But I was starting to think that watching the sweded movies would've been more fun than watching Be Type Rewind itself. Gondry never totally fleshes out his characters or resolves some of the subplots. The visuals are fun, but when Gondry's forced to wrap up the movie, it becomes a tiny sporadic and we begin to realize the the movie doesn't go much beyond its rich concept.There is something nice to take away from this film. And while I have some reservations about the film, my suggestion for the movie is based on Gondry's filmaking vision. That is to say, there is clearly a joy of filmaking associated with Gondry that will have me continue to look forward to his work. If you're not sure what I mean, take a look at his promotional materials or at his another short films. The boy loves filmaking and has fun with this movie. However, I'd suggest he build an alliance with some nice screenwriters that would support his visions become totally realized, and not just nice natured diversions, as this movie is.


I missed this movie at Sundance, caught it as later as possible, and I wasn't disappointed. Despite being privy to the exhaustive fine-tuning of an indie movie with an improvised feel, watching "Be Kind" I should absolutely trust it came together as quickly and spontaneously as the snippets of "sweded" films. This was part of its charm and I think Gondry's intention.All the actors were engaging, and genuine heartfelt emotion - most definitely by the surprising, naturally pitch-perfect Mos Def - transcended the dialog, plot points and general wackiness.The Fats Waller thread was just random enough and very skillfully and satisfyingly woven into the storyline from beginning to end. This and many another features - including touches like lovely Mia Farrow's curiosity about supernatural movies and Sigourney Weaver's brief take-charge turn - convinced me that Gondry place quite a bit of thought and skill into perfecting the film's endearing awkwardness. It might not be to everybody's taste, but I think it was a nice idea, executed and seasoned just right.
