A great film. The last time I saw this film it was at the old Allen theater in L.A. It was filmed over the past decade but was the first time I had ever seen the film in its entirety. It was a bit depressing at times but what was you'd expect from an Allen film? It's also interesting to note that it was released in the year of the massacre at Columbine High School. Is this a comment on Allen's political and social views? Whatever, the film is wonderful. Worth seeing!

The movie is worth seeing, and the acting is fantastic, however, the writing is atrocious. Every scene has at least 3 characters speaking in the same sentence, with their dialog being "oh wow I was actually interested in that". The writers need to write a story that follows these rules. No one who doesn't watch the movie will realize that. The movie might as well have been called "I was actually interested in that". And what is with the weather. Ever seen the one about Texas? It looks like the title is called "The storm that struck Texas" then the name of the character is changed to "flooding". I'm not sure if they switched it around so it would look like that in the credits, but it's like the movie is written by a child. Also the weather is never mentioned, which is just weird, since I'm sure the storm had a huge impact on the weather of Texas. Overall, I would say it's worth seeing, but it's very hard to believe the movie was made in the 1990's.

I think this film would have been a huge success had it been a direct to DVD release. With the vast number of US and UK releases of the same film, there are enough copies to make it the only way this film will be sold. Also, most films with this cast, make it into the US market. There are some films that come out the US and do so without this cast, just as a make up job. Most of the films they have on the shelves are made by Hollywood studios, so it's no wonder this film made it to the US market, if it had been a direct to DVD release. The opening title card does not tell you the name of the film, so, I would advise reading the page on the front of the DVD. It says "The Mollys Game" for a good reason, I think it says it all. The movie is set in the 1970's in northern England, where a crooked police officer, played by Philip Seymour Hoffman, is forced to take bribes to do his job. This film is about corruption and the dirty deals that can be made when the financial motive is not enough to keep an honest police force. The corrupt police officer has to deal with a lot of difficulties, as he is also dealing with his own personal life problems. I really enjoyed this film and think it was well acted. The cinematography and story telling was very good and made it very realistic. There were some wonderful scenes in this film, such as the shootout in the bridge and the funeral procession for the prostitute played by Mia Farrow. The sexual scenes were pretty explicit and could be very disturbing to some people. However, I think it was accurate to portray how women in the 1970's would have felt in that era, especially the prostitutes. Philip Seymour Hoffman gave a very good performance, and it was a shame that he didn't get nominated for an Oscar for this film. His character of David Mills was very sympathetic. He has a perfect balance of sweetness and tough side and portrays the character of a man who was born to be a policeman, but eventually had to give up on his life, and ultimately became a police officer, who is dealing with his own personal problems.

There are few films I've seen that I can truly say made a significant impact on me, that truly touched me and that still affected me long after the film has ended. This is one of them. It's a haunting, beautiful film. The movie is based on the true story of Molly Bloom, a mother of two who was falsely accused of murdering her husband in a jealous rage. After several years of false imprisonment, she is freed and finds out that she was not guilty of murdering her husband. That's not the only horrible thing she does though. She begins to spend her days plotting revenge on all the people who wronged her. She starts out by torturing a co-worker and then she begins to write about the people she thinks she killed. There's an excellent cast here, including Joaquin Phoenix, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tilda Swinton and Reese Witherspoon. The story is gripping and the characters are well developed. The film also has a fine score and some interesting cinematography. The last scene in particular is one of the most powerful I've ever seen. It's haunting and powerful and it truly touches you.

A lot of people don't like Molly's Game. I don't know why. It is not very violent, and the story is really interesting. I found it to be very good. I think that most people who haven't seen it think it's very boring and doesn't move very much. That's not the case. The main characters are very interesting, and I think that the plot is great. I am glad that they didn't include a lot of political and social commentary. The movie doesn't really talk about that at all. It's just about real life situations. This is a great movie, and it's a very good movie.

I actually saw this movie at the Toronto Film Festival, where I was given an advance screening. I think this movie is really excellent, but there are two things that bother me. The first is the casting of Ben Chaplin as the killer, he was awful. The second is the fact that the movie itself is so long that it almost becomes boring. I love the short shots of him walking around the movie. I also liked the cutaways to the terrible murder. Also, I thought the ending was a little disappointing. I love how the police are able to use the phone to call Nick's mother. However, I felt that the police did not use it in the last few scenes. Overall, I thought this movie was great and I really recommend it to all people.

I really did enjoy this movie, a truly engrossing story of love, sex, and greed. I was really surprised at how well it was shot, and that I could see the actors in the movie. I love that there were no red herrings in the movie, I would have liked to see more of the characters, and more of their story. The story is intense, and it is a little hard to follow at times. I have to say though, it was very gripping. The ending is a little difficult to understand, and I would have liked to have seen more of it, but the characters were so well developed, and the film was told in such a believable way, that it really worked well. I would have loved to have seen more of Molly, but I think she was a little under developed in the movie. She wasn't the focus of the movie, she just kind of had the lead role, but that is okay, I think she was one of the most interesting characters in the film. I also love the ending, I think it was brilliant, I just wish it was a little more clearer. But all in all, I think it was very well done, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Predictable plot, nothing much of substance, but fun enough to watch and learn a little about the life of a genius. Very well shot and edited. David Fincher's direction and script were great, as was Casey Affleck's acting. The story of one young genius's search for truth and justice is riveting, and the film makes the journey feel real, real enough to make you want to know more about the characters and why they did what they did, and even if the plot ends, you'll still want to know more.
