#قصة الفيلم
تدور أحداث القصة حول شقيقان يعيشان حياة بائسة فقيرة حيث يحاول الأخ الأصغر ان يسلك طريق مليئ بالمخاطر للسعي وراء حياة أفضل ، بينما الأخ الأكبر مقتنع بهذه الحياة العادية ، وتبدأ المشاكل مع كل واحد منهم وكيف يواجه كل واحد منهم ظروفه.

قصة حلوة فيها تضحيات وايد ، يبين الفيلم عقل الشباب المتسرع والمندفع ، وعقل الإنسان الكبير الواعي والفاهم في كيفية التحكم بمجرى الأمور ، أحداث الفيلم شوي كانت باردة بس تشدك بنفس الوقت ، أتوقع الفيلم لو ركزو فيه من ناحية عمق القصة والسرد القوي جان صار احلى ، يمكن يكون الفيلم مكرر نوعا ما بس يستاهل الواحد يشوفه.

natewatchescoolmovies Michael Winterbottom's The Killer Inside Me is one of the most flat out disturbing films ever made under the sun, even if only for a few brief, harrowing sequences encased in a lurid, laconic, southern fried oddity of a story that defies genre confinement while still planting vague roots in crime drama. When the sequences I speak of show up, and you'll know exactly when, it takes you right off guard and immediately notifies you that the film has no intentions of towing a line within anyone's comfort zone. It's an odd story for someone to strive to tell, and one wonders what inky black corners of the psyche that Jim Thompson was spellunking in when he scribed the novel on which this is based. It starts off conventionally enough, under the prosperous sun of the West Texas desert in the heat of the 1950's. Sheriff's Deputy Lou Ford (Casey Affleck) is a regular enough guy, tasked with rousing a local prostitute (Jessica Alba) living in nearby suburbia. He also deals with the dodgy real estate kingpin  Chester Conway (a blustery Ned Beatty) and his cronies. He's also got a cute fiance (Kate Hudson). He's calm, cool and connected, right up until the part where he turns out to be a certifiable grade murdering psychopath. Affleck let's the authoritarian composure bleed away and reveal the layers of eveil beneath, until we begin to wonder if the film we are watching has been interrupted by someone taping over it with something far darker. But no... it's the same movie. It just veers into territory we didn't expect and may be taken aback by. Affleck discovers the psychopath within himself, and fits inside the characteristics like a glove. The first person to stray into his path is Alba, and there's a sequence where he gives her a royal, merciless, and bloody beatdown that will shiver your spine in its blunt, head-on realism. It's seriously stomach churning shit, and levels off both the film and Affleck's role in pure stone cold seriousness. He's a budding lunatic, made all the more dangerous by bis position of power within law enforcement and shielded by his trustworthy reputation. The film resists generic story beats, and instead meanders about, diligently following 1mon
  •   natewatchescoolmovies diligently following Affleck from encounter to macabre encounter, discovering his dark interior nature without much rhyme or reason as far as conventional plot goes. This has a wickedly prolific cast for such a risky film, with fine work from Bill Pullman, Brent Briscoe, Tom Bower, Simon Baker and the ever reliable Elias Koteas who adds to the cumulative unease. It's Affleck's  shown though, and he splinters nerves with his unpredictable, hollow and fascinating portrait of a psychopath. Soon we begin to wonder what he sees and heats is real, as characters he interacts with seem to come back from the dead and knowingly coach him towards trouble in trademark indications of serious mental distrbance. This one arrives at it's end severely south of where it started from, taking the viewer off guard. Those who appreciate the tantalizing, prickly nature of a thriller that isn't afraid to seriously shake up your shit and take you places you've only been to on clammy nightmares will appreciate it. Just mentally psych yourself up for that scene I mentioned, because it will scar yu and then some. 1mon

natewatchescoolmovies The one great benefit that any film based on a Stephen King story has is just that: it's based on a Stephen King story. The guy is just such a prodigy of fiction that even if the film version of one of his books doesn't deliver, one can still see the brilliant blueprint lurking beneath the frames. When the filmmakers are successful, however, we get a visually stimulating project founded on the tale he has weaved to support all the other elements. Hearts In Atlantis is based on an anthology volume of his, and in fact the story the film follows isn't even called that, it's actually 'Low Men In Yellow Coats'. I can see why the director went with Hearts In Atlantis though, as it's much more akin to the ethereal, sentimental tone he was going for, and less of an ominous hook. The story itself follows a mysterious man named Ted Brautigan (Anthony Hopkins), a recent tenant in the home of young Bobby Garfield (Anton Yelchin) and his wayward mother (a miscast Hope Davis). The setting is Midwestern America, in the dead heat of a 1950's summer. Bobby spends his days cavorting in the local woodlands with his fastest of friends, Carole (Mika Boorem) and Sully (Will Rothhaar). He takes a shine to Ted though, who pays him a dollar a week to read to him, and warns him of shadowy 'low men', threatening figures who doggedly pursue him for nasty reasons. Ted becomes a father figure for young Bobby, whose mother has questionable ideas about not only raising a son, but taking care of her own affairs. Now the film may seem a bit thinly plotted to some, and there's a reason for that. This story is actually a tiny fragment in a much larger tale, King's magnum opus The Dark Tower. Ted and Bobby have important parts to play in that saga, in which the events of this film are but a sentence long. Some viewers may feel slighted by a lack of context, but the filmmakers here still find a way to make this its own story, crafting a touching coming of age story melded with whispers of otherworldly intrigue. The fusion of beguiling nostalgia and the vague menace that advances on Bobby and Ted makes for a unique tone, something just south of a thriller which can't quite be pinned down by genre 2mon
  •   natewatchescoolmovies quite be pinned down by genre labels. Hopkins can be both terrifying and tender depending on the role. Here he is kindness incarnate as a man whose worldly intuition goes beyond telekinesis into the kind of qualities reserved for the best and brightest. Yelchin and Boorem, who would star alongside each other again a few years later in the lacklustre Along Came A Spider, are the superb heart of the film. Yelchin has shown a constant progression of strongly realized, believable work and the quality of his craft can be traced back to this stunning genesis role. Boorem is highly underused these days, and one need only watch her light up the screen with emotional sincerity in this to see why she should be working far more. There's neat supporting work from Tom Bower, Celia Weston, Alan Tudyuk and David Morse as an older version of Bobby who yearns for days gone by. I found myself deeply enjoying this one whilst constantly drawing back to the knowledge and context I have for it via The Dark Tower, but the film on it's own is enough to provide a rewarding experience for anyone who isn't familiar with the multiverse. Amid King's favourite topics and settings are Midwest adolescence, idiosyncratic nooks of Americana and the ever present supernatural aspect, dynamics which Hearts In Atlantis gives us aplenty, along with an open invitation to explore the universe farther, should one want to venture along the path to the Tower. I'd recommend it. 2mon

stotty_atthe_movies Just got done watching Lamb. Wow that was great. It's going to be a controversial film for what happens and I dont want to give too much away. Both David and Tommie have both had very rough lives until they meet. Its an extremely emotional film, especially the ending. I've said it since I saw her in Southpaw Oona Laurence is going to be a Hollywood star in the future and she followed up well with Lamb. She is very, very good as is Ross Partridge. All I am going to say is watch Lamb, it is phenomenal.

Lamb = 4.5/5
