Basements Reviews:

Okay - the another review of this present is for the birds - the person hasn't even seen it - so why comment on it - to this day I remember the segment named THE ROOM - Annie Lennox and Linda Hunt are brilliant together, dark and moody, I want I should see this present again to bring out all the features that I remember from it.Given that it was made for TV - it will probably never surface again - but someone, somewhere has to have this on tape or DVD by actually - and when/if they release it - I will be one of the ones in line to add it to my collection to watch again and again.John Travolta was in a career slump - but that was of his own doing - he could have read the scripts and not cashed the check during this mission in his life, but he's since recovered from this mission and done well indeed.But it's everytime going to be the segment with Annie that strikes my memory - she's not just a truly gifted signer/songwriter/performer - she can act. Given that every of her videos from the Eurythmics is a bit of acting - it's great to see her spread her wings and soar!


I am the first one to SPIT upon....really, I cannot stand pretentious crud -- spit upon art that pretends to be art...Paintings of green with a yellow spot and selling for $250,000 (seriously), or boring films and plays that border on insanity...BUT...Pinter's MASterpiece, The Dumb Waiter is indeed an 'absurdist' piece, but one that has a beginning, a middle and an end, and truly carries the viewer (or reader) through a psychological dialogue that ranks with Terry Gilliam's 'Brazil,' and Mamet's The Spanish Prisoner,' as movies that take the absurdist and surreal category and now create movies truly art-worthy.I love the Dumb Waiter -- and ironically, fell in love with it during a college drama class -- I wrote at length about it because I had been one to rant about stupid wannabe pretentious theatre, art, music, etc. and realized that Pinter is truly an artist. Truly. Another pretenders do minimalistic work because they can't do more, but this is nice -- and the greatest acting Travolta has done besides Pulp Fiction... ...oh, and Battlefield Earth...(just kidding)


Altman really hit on a nice thing with his short movies written by Harold Pinter. The movie effectively contrasts Conti's brilliant acting skills with the non-existent skills of John Travolta. Travolta's terrible british accent is worth the price of admission alone! (I am sure this is all intentional - a true Altman touch) Travolta plays a hitman! And we all thought the Tarantino was the original one with that idea. A genius storyline that is excellently paced. For a nice time, view this unbelievable artistic piece.
