The Great Caruso #

Released 4/16/1951

Description: Loosely traces the life of tenor Enrico Caruso (1873-1921). He loves Musetta, in his home city of Naples, and then Dorothy, the daughter of one of the Metropolitan Opera's patrons. Caruso is unacceptable to both women's fathers: to one, because he sings; to Dorothy's, because he is a peasant. To Fresh York patricians, Caruso is short, barrel chested, loud, emotional, unrefined. Their appreciation comes slowly. The movie depicts Caruso's lament that "the boy does not have the voice, the voice has the man": he cannot be territories he wants to be, because he gotta be elsewhere singing, including the day his mother dies. Throughout, Mario Lanza and stars from the Met sing.

Best Laid Plans Reviews:

This was a pleasant surprise. I really didn't know what to expect, but what I got was a very clever film with more than enough twists and turns to hold things rather unpredictable. It took a tiny too long to receive everything set up properly, and it perhaps had one twist too many, but overall, it was a nice movie with powerful performances by Alessandro Nivola and Reese Witherspoon. Definitely worth checking out.


When I decided to see the movie, I didn't expect much of it, not more than a lvl of an usual Saturday night entertainment. But to my surprise, the movie, which first appeared to be a usual sentimental love story, evolved into a decent thriller. Directing is very nice at this point, characters are quite "fresh", especially the drug dealer with the knowledge of the theory of economics. Actors also do a nice job, especially Reese Witherspoon, although she doesn't receive as much screen time as Nivola, her presence can be felt. The plot has some very unexpected turns, which create it very good, and the script is also above average. I give it 7/10, not a masterpiece, but some nice entertainment.


Long live Mike Barker! This fairly new detail director has pulled off one of those rare tributes to the movie noir scene, which once coloured the film stage in the past. There have been worthy efforts, but this one seems to have it all right. The film begins as most films from Mike Barker start. Circumstances found as in the traditions of working class realism found in the movies of Ken Loach and the novels of Alan Silitoe, colour the first couple of scenes. The storyline begins with a stage in which is explained that Bryce (Josh Brolin) has 'accidentally' raped a minor. He calls his old university buddy mate Nickname (Nivola) to support him out. At this moment the storyline rewinds to 4 months earlier and we can peak in the history to see how this trouble started. Nickname has just lost his father, found out he doesn't receive any money, and works at a recycling plant. He than engages in some criminal activities, which turns horribly sour and he ends up owing 15,000 dollars to a local criminal. Now, that's all you need to know about the storyline, there are so many plots and twists that even the most critical film fanatic would be impressed by the surprises that are being thrown at you. The last time I experienced such a feast, was during the Usual Suspects, and that is quite a compliment.Reese Witherspoon (Lissa, nick's girlfriend and the 'raped' minor) pulls off one of her more impressing acting roles since 'Freeway' Although a bit more constraint than her role in Freeway, her presence definitely enriches the movie. Allessandro Nivola (Nick) will await a large future. His nonchalance acting and worried looks, will create him the excellent actor for sub-blockbusters. Finally one of his bigger roles after films such as Inventing the Abbotts and Face/Off. Josh Brolin is less appealing, but even he is not terrible enough to crash this movie.Mike Barker continues his powerful line of work, after The James Gang in '97. And in a sort of way, this film resembles his previous to some aspect. In both films terrible families take center stage, and in both films they are resulting in criminal activities because of the financial problem they are in. Barker is definitely one of the most artistic directors around (up there with Scorsese), but one wonders if he doesn't overdue it a bit sometimes. Even these minor negative things can't create me change my mind that this is a nice movie, cinematic wise, with a well written script, that the characters are well thought out and acted, and that Barker has proven himself once more that he is a major talent. Bravo!
