Saw this film in the 2011 Black List film festival. Much to my surprise it was great. It had everything I could have wanted. A great director, great actors, great cinematography. It's a great twist on a classic tale. Perhaps one of the greatest films ever.

One of the few genuinely great films that I've seen recently, I think some viewers will find that they could do with a little more gore and blood, but if you like the Coen brothers, and really love playing people, this is a very good film.

Dick Long is the name of the actor played by Johnny Depp, who becomes a hit man for the drug kingpin, "Bully" Kenny. Kenny is in prison and he plans to kill Long, after he sees a spectacular cut of his child's funeral. So, Dick decides to kill Kenny. While on the road with a good friend, Long stops by a high school. The girl his friend was dating, is also a hit-man, and he is falling in love with her. Kenny is now living in the city, and Depp is one of the most powerful people in the world. Long is now more focused on Kenny, but still obsessed with Long. The film's two stars are very interesting, especially Depp, who brings a lot of intelligence to the role. Long's friends are also interesting, but mostly their looks. Jane Adams does a good job, as a girl who has an obsession with Long. Matthew McConaughey is also very interesting, in his role, and Gwyneth Paltrow is very good, who is easily the best character in the film. The music by Junkie XL, while strange, is very good, adding a lot of emotion to the film. As a movie, "Dick Long" is a great watch, and should be seen by fans of the two stars.

This is the type of movie that makes you want to get out of your seat and have a good time with your friends. This movie offers great acting, a great story, and a fantastic cast. I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a movie with action, a great story, and amazing acting. My rating for this movie is 9 out of 10. I give it a 9 out of 10.

What can I say about this film I haven't already said in the other reviews? It is an adaptation of "the death of a boss" from the 1990 book by Tim O'Donnell. To be honest I can't say I saw the original as this film (I had to see this first) really encapsulates everything that this novel is about. The difference between this film and the original is that this film is slightly better in terms of acting, plot, pace and overall quality. I was very impressed with this film, and can say I would recommend it to anyone that is a fan of Dick Long or books. The only disappointment is that they had to take a movie out of a TV show series and change the ending, which is a shame, however this film still stands up well to the original, if only to show you why we loved it so much as kids. My only gripe is that it is a bit slow at times, which is a bit of a shame, because the ending is so good, it could have used a bit of help in the middle of the film to catch up, but it does not matter much as the ending itself is quite incredible. Overall, this is one of my favorite TV shows and I can't wait to see the rest of the series.

This movie is nothing but a must-see for everyone who likes Asian movies, because it takes place in Japan and the theme of the movie is about a group of high school students who go to Japan to visit their great-grandparents, who passed away while living in Tokyo. If you like an original movie, this is it. So, if you like a great movie with a interesting story and no special effects, this is it. Enjoy.

Having watched this movie, I was left wondering what the characters were really about. My guess would be there's a connection between the story and the "stars", but I guess we just don't know the inner-workings of these characters and what we don't know is enough to make us question how they're related to each other and what happens to each of them. I think it's interesting how this movie is a lot more about the relationships between the stars and about the mental illness itself, but what's really interesting about it is that it's very direct about it, and the movie really works because it feels like it's saying more about itself than about the characters. It seems like that's what the characters do, but it's actually quite a direct look into the very real world of mental illness. I think it's a very unusual movie, in that it has an amazingly good plot, a really great story, and it really puts you in a psychological state while it's playing out. I love how this movie feels like a loose collection of images that serve as a prism through which we can view a world of mental illness. I think the characters work as a kind of prism through which we see each other's struggle to cope with their own mental illnesses, but it's a lot more subtle than a film would let you think. I think it's very well made, and I think it's a very effective depiction of the mental illness. I think it's also pretty poignant, because of all the drugs and alcohol and the pathos of it all, this movie feels like it's saying to the characters, "You're in no way, shape, or form all that fucked up." I think this movie is one of the best movies I've seen this year. It's about depression and mental illness, and it's really clever about how it portrays them, and it's also about how different things can be from different places.

Quentin Tarantino wrote an amazing story for this movie, and once again he proves that he is not the dumb, idiot Hollywood and mainstream movie industry that the critics accuse him of being. It is like when you think a movie is one dimensional, the book would've ended up something completely different, and the movie would've become more of an epic and he would've never lost his way. While a lot of reviewers are calling this movie "boring", the only boring part was the time it took for this movie to conclude. Not an epic but just enough to have the characters develop and go on their ways without the movie's climax. Its been a long time since I've seen such a funny and intelligent movie in a long time. Its a true gem of a movie, and I will be recommending it to all my friends and family. So let's put aside what critics say and give this film a chance. 9/10

I am very glad to see that other viewers have enjoyed this film. After seeing it, I still have a lot of respect for Mr. Blatty. I do feel that the film is slightly overstated. But it is a great film nonetheless. George Romero and David Cronenberg seem to work very well together. It is also very entertaining and I look forward to seeing more from them. What I find to be unique about this film is the style of the photography. It is more documentary-like than every other film I have seen in recent times. I guess that it is influenced by documentaries such as Schindler's List, or I'm not Johnny Cash. But I think that it is the style that is unique to the film, and that the directors, the actors and the cinematographer have been working together to create the best film in a very long time. I think it is the way that Mr. Blatty portrays the character Dick Long, and his decisions, that gives the film its power. It is not a superficial personification of Dick's life. He is made up to be someone we can relate to. He is made up to be a comic relief, and that is very important to me as a viewer. The black comedy is not a problem to me. I find it to be one of the most funny scenes in the film. But I do feel that I have seen some of the best films of the past few years. I would recommend this film to everyone who wants to watch a great film. Not only that, but I would recommend this film to anyone who wants to feel better about themselves. Watch this film if you want to experience a personal highlight of your life.

I am very interested in watching any Dan Brown movie. When I saw the title of this movie I couldn't help to compare it to what I had read about the book. As much as I really like the novel and I am not the most fond of the series, I was really eager to see the movie version. I didn't like the movie. It was not good at all. The story was just different from the novel. It was a little slow and it is really hard to follow. In fact the way the story is presented could be a little annoying for the viewer. Anyway, I am very much disappointed in the movie. I really enjoyed the movie. I saw it in IMAX and it was amazing. That I just didn't like the movie at all. This is my first Dan Brown movie that I really disliked.

Dick Long (Brian Van Holt) is a half-man, half-crocodile. His mother, Paulette (Mimi Kennedy), longs for Dick, who would not consider her until he sees him and sees her. Dick is so depressed, so not himself, that he thinks Paulette is the one to bring him back to his happy place. But, by no fault of Dick's, he may have alienated Paulette. As time goes on, Dick begins to see things differently. He gets closer to Paulette, and begins to feel better about himself. The perfect ending of the movie shows us that everything was not what it seemed to be, and that no one is what they seem to be. This movie is best viewed after seeing "Titanic" (the best motion picture of all time), and before the release of "The Empire Strikes Back."

Really liked the film. Nice message for today's youth. Was expecting a lot of swearing and sex, but not much. It seems to be a plot of a story, which I can understand. But I wonder if people will read this and get tired of the film, or maybe people are looking for a "justified" reason to hate this film. So I suggest watching it and then decide for yourself. The actors did great and the character development was great. No violence or sex. The main actor actually did a great job in the role of Dick. This is not about being gang-banger or thug. It is about the audience going to the movies for another personality and that is what this film was. However if you watch it without the sense of expectation, you will be astonished.

This is a great movie and I agree with all the reviewers. The title is exactly what it is and the story is not completely awful, but as usual with Charlie Kaufman he has created an almost perfect movie. There is a genius behind the creation and it shows. Charlie has the ability to show you the meaning of life and the meaning of death, to bring you to the place of wholeness and unity in the world of people, to let you taste what it is like to be alive and see the light at the end of the tunnel. I also appreciated the originality of the plot. I could have been the one driving the car that was supposed to kill Dick, but it was Charlie who pulled me in to his world. The movie is so original and so true that it's like discovering a new religion. I can't say that it is a comedy, but I feel it might become a cult classic. Don't be surprised if you see a town full of people with a child staring at your windows with an expression of "Dad, why did you do that?". I am not a Charlie Kaufman fan, but I saw his work before, and I loved it, but I am definitely a fan of his genius. I will be watching every film he makes!

Hollywood, in an attempt to emulate the period pieces of the past, has attempted to fuse Mad Men and Flowers with this great film. It is the first of its kind, although there have been some stellar efforts. I feel that it is an excellent film in that it conveys the frustration of the characters in a way that is original and compelling. It really is not necessary to have read the books. It is better if you will just watch it and get the characters in the way of the story and relate it to yourself. This film is a tale of those who have an important life event that can change the course of their lives. It is truly an important film for anyone who watches it, and for anyone who knows a good story.
