Description: Oriental Elegy (1996). Visually impressionistic, atmospherically dense, and narratively opaque, Oriental Elegy is the surreal adventure of a displaced spirit (Aleksandr Sokurov) as he wanders in the interminable darkness through the temporal landscape of a quaint and isolated feudal-era fishing village. Guided by a series of faintly illuminated rooms, the wandering spirit comes upon ancient souls who take on physical forms as they recount their private stories of everyday existence, loss, and tragedy in the peasant community. Intrigued by his initial visit to a curiously distracted elderly woman, the spirit returns to her home in order to ask a fundamental question - "What is happiness?" - an existential query that is innocently answered with innate humility and agreed unknowingness.

Requiem #

Released 6/3/1998

Description: What is the nature of life? What is the nature of art? How can art influence our lives? These are the questions of this movie. The main character, a boy who lives both in the globe of dreams and reality, searches his past, in order to understand its meaning. He has meetings with the ghosts of his dead friend, his dead lover, his dead father and Pessoa, the nice portuguese writer. These four encounters give him clues about what he is looking for. Beside that, he finds himself in front of art, discovering how it modifies our comprehension of life. It's based in one of Tabucci's (the italian writer)books: "Requiem". This several lines cannot resume the greatness of this movie. The last thing I can tell is: If you like art, I suggest you to see it. If you ever wonder about the nature of dreams, or you live in dreams half of the time, I think you'll feel like this film was made for you.

Secvenţe #

Released 11/29/1982

Description: In this interesting drama, three sequences which should have formed separate stories are linked together, like vehicles on a train, to give a larger perspective on the nature of reality and film. The three episodes are joined together by one movie team at work on two various jobs. In the beginning, the team is introduced as they juggle their dual roles as State-supported propagandists who laud their government and society, and as personal film makers working on their own film. Next, they are in a restaurant looking for suitable territories to movie when the eatery’s owner, through no fault of his own, is induced to wax long and lugubriously on his miserable life. In the last segment, two extras are in the background of a scene, sitting at a table in a restaurant. It slowly becomes apparent to one of them that the boy he’s sitting with tortured him more than 40 years ago at a Nazi concentration camp during Globe Fight II.

Last Dance Reviews:

Film begins of with Rick Hayes (Rob Morrow) a young lawyer who gets a fresh job and is assigned a clemency situation on Cindy Liggett (Sharon Stone) who has been on death row for 12 years for double murder. Rick Hayes tries to save Liggett from execution. At first she refuses to give Rick information. But soon on gets along with him and they receive closer. Everyone gives up on her and Rick is the only one trying to support her and is very driven to save her.Some folks might tell it is a slow and boring film and that the plot is not nice but i liked it, it was a very touching film and Sharon Stone did a nice job. I recamend it to those that like touching films like me. .


I have yet to see DMW- starring Sean Penn and Susan Sarandon, but given it was such a famous movie, it was hard for this one to step out of its shadow. It is about a girl up vs death row. An attorney steps in and tries to save her life by proving her innocence in a murder trial. I have everytime been intrigued with prison films for their grittiness, and drama, and Last Dance has some true moments of tension. However the grittiness is somewhat lacking, until the end (and even there its not as strong). What saves the film is powerful acting, specifically from Stone (who is somewhat Hollywood's female ver of Sean Penn in that they exceed in the lowlife "bad guy" roles like no other). 7/10.


she stars as a middle-aged girl on death row for a crime she committed as a teenager who was high on drugs and alcohol. It's really sad because back then, even she was a victim herself, of abuse by her boyfriend as well as folks in her instant family background. But two wrongs don't create a right. Her drunken and drug high resulted in the death of innocent folks for which she has gotten stuck serving time while her crazy boyfriend at the time goes score free. The majority of the movie is in her lawyer's mission of view as he tries desperately to save her from death by lethal injection and in the process falls in love with her. It is stunningly shot though slow paced (and as well it could be, it's a movie about the supposed last days of somebody's life Hello!) and brilliantly acted. The greatest stage is the end stage but I don't wish to give too much away. Hint: it has to do with one of the most pretty wonders of India.
