:wink: Stiu. Era o gluma a-propos de Terminator. Totusi pe 2 Iulie a fost in forma finala (adica cea de acum), nu? Si a pus stapanire pe noi. :wink:

A avut loc de curînd (15 mai) premiera filmului După-amiaza unui torţionar de Lucian Pintilie. Filmul pleacă de la mărturia autentică unui fost torţionar în lagărele comuniste, mărturie consemnată chiar de mine şi publicată în cartea intitulată Drumul Damascului – Spovedania unui fost torţionar. (Bine primită de public, ea a fost recent reeditată în TOPH, colecţie a editurii noastre în care au intrat reeditările celor mai vîndute titluri.) .....

L-am pandit, dar nimic! Nu l-am prins prin cinematografe... Dar aveam impresia totusi ca a aparut mai demult, nu acum doar 2 luni. Era un afis cu el la Europa, dar nimeni nu stia cand vine... si unde se duce.

Am revazut ieri 8 1/2 cu niste prieteni dar am fost putin dezamagit de reactie lor :( . Eu l-am vazut a 4-a oara si tot mi-a placut, de fiecare data il vezi altfel, iti spune inca ceva.
Si am fost incantat cand am vazut cum Mastroiani imita la un moment mersul unui personaj din Dodes'kaden, un omagiu adus maestrului Kurosawa.

PS. pt cunoscutii vechi pot sa fac un efort si sa le "asigur" o vizionare a celor 2 filme, ajunse pe calculatorul meu dupa saptamani de mers non-stop, laudat fie XP-ul care mi-a asigurat un trai lin fara restarturi.

Am vazut de curand "What lies beneath" si mi-a placut, pacat ca l-am vazut tarziu in noapte. Primu rol negativ pe care l-a avut Harrison Ford. Mi-era frica sa sting lumina :lol:

Nu sunt sigur, dar cred ca patzesti asa din cauza procesorului. E prea slow. Am niste prieteni in camin cu PII 300 si li se intampla acelasi lucru.

Daca nu ati vazut Queen of the damned, atunci vi-l recomand!
E un film super cu Stuart Townsend si Aaliyah....iar coloana sonora e..."mortala..."
"Erotic, scary, gothic and exciting."
P.S.dar... inainte sa inceapa filmul asigurati-va ca ati stins toate luminile...

eu l-am vazut dar recunosc ca n-am avut rabdare sa-l termin ptr ca mi s-a parut slab. deja a devenit depasit dupa parerea mea cliseul asta cu vampirii moderni ce banuie prin discoteci cu rave la maxim si-i sug pe bietii raveri de toate cele bla bla bla-- asta a fost pct in care n-am mai rezistat... :)

Ma dau si eu cu parerea a propos de Leo di Caprio.
Ati vazut "Gangs of NY"? Mie chiar mi-a placut, mai mult la a doua vizionare decit la prima. Caprio era si el pe acolo, dar Daniel Day Lewis merita Oscar pentru ce a facut. Parerea mea...
Si un evergreen: Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork orange".
ok. who's next?

Daniel Day Lewis asta imi place si mie, joaca bine... in materie de filme preferatele mele sunt by far English Pacient si Dragonfly :) ... bine, astea ca filme mai sensibile, bune privite in ansamblu...altfel, comedii cat cuprinde :lol: ...la polul opus ma enerveaza de-a dreptul Natural Born Criminals sau stupizeniile romanesti din ultima vreme (exceptand Filantropica), in special Furia...a, si mai imi plac filmele de desene animate ca Stallion of the Cimaron or Atlantis, chiar si clasicele

Daniel Day-Lewis are deja 2 Oscaruri, My left foot fiind o adevarata capodopera si unul dintre filmele mele de suflet.
Natural born killers mi-a placut, e o satira foarte acida pe care ar trebui sa o ai tot timpul in minte. Si cu toate ca A clockwork orange e la prima vedere asemanatoare nu pot sa spun ca l-am gustat prea mult :(

Remember Katharine Hepburn

Image

Katharine Houghton Hepburn
(Also Known As:
The Great Kate; Katharine Of Arrogance; Katie; Kathy (Spencer Tracy also gave her a variety of affectionate nicknames, from 'bag of bones' to 'Olive Oyl'.)
May 12, 1907 - June 29, 2003

Katharine Hepburn's last words: 'They're all dead - it's amazing'


O sa preiau aici bucati diverse articole:

Katharine Hepburn was one of the few "constants" left for classic movie fans, and her death at the age of 96 leaves a huge void in our hearts. It seems as if she has always been there -- and in fact she's been a movie actress since Herbert Hoover was President. That's almost 70 years, for those of you too young to have a clue who he was.

She was full of contradictions. Though always gorgeous, she is not usually thought of as a glamour girl; while never a cult figure like Marilyn, she still finished second to MM in the balloting for our Favorite Classic Actress award and was #1 in the AFI voting for favorite actress; while she is known world wide, and is the only actress who consistently shows up on lists of the world's most admired women, she always insisted on being just one of the folks in Hartford, CT.

There are no contradictions when it comes to her film career, however. She survived an early and probably deserved reputation as a "difficult" actress and went on to become the only woman to win four Academy Awards -- in three different, non-consecutive decades, no less -- after being nominated twelve times (a record until Meryl Streep's recent 13th nomination). She appeared in 53 theatrical films and TV movies, and starred in all but three of them.

From her luminous performances in "Morning Glory" and "The Philadelphia Story" to her hilarious romps in "Bringing Up Baby" and "Adam's Rib" to her strong portrayals in "Long Day's Journey Into Night," "The African Queen," and "The Lion in Winter," she never gave us less than her best. There has never been and probably never will be another Kate Hepburn.





So. Is it time to say goodbye?

Because if it is, you know, there's a whole host of platitudes I could haul out now. She was one of a kind. Or they don't make 'em like this anymore. Better yet, she changed my life. How about she was an inspiration? All sentiments that will appear in various forms throughout the numerous tribute articles I have no doubt are springing up all over the web right now. They'll be repeated ad nauseum in the print media by the end of next week too. No doubt about that.

But--and perhaps this is some kind of protective reflex--I'm not going to write an article about Kate's life (an obituary: such an oddly ugly word), and her accomplishments, and how she's the last and the best of the greats, and how she's affected people all around the world. I don't want to.

Because, in all honesty, today was a day like any other. I've gone to work, I've struggled to stay awake after lunch, I've done a bit of shopping, tortured myself at the gym, come home and now I'm in front of the computer. Nothing earth-shaking. In the few hours I've known, I've only had the few moments of fleeting, aching sadness for someone I never knew personally; a hope that she has found her Spencer, her happiness, her eternity.

Tomorrow, I will go on. So will all of Kate's fans, all of you reading this now, all over the world. That's life. And that's death. It will hurt. Probably in passing, maybe more often when it finally sinks in.

But it will pass.

And what I'll have... what you'll have... what we all will have... are the memories. Our memories of the first time we saw those proud, high cheekbones. The first time we heard that voice--powerful, some might say strident, unique. The first time we saw beyond her screen image, to perhaps come to know a little about the woman behind the icon. The first time we saw one of her films, a crystal capture of her energy, her life at the moment.

All the first times. All the memories. All the joy, the sadness, and, in the end, all the sheer, incredible magic of it.

It's never goodbye. Never adieu, or farewell.



Remembered For:

Those cheekbones ("the greatest calcium deposits since the White Cliffs of Dover!"); her 'mannerisms' and 'accent'; being a true eccentric (e.g. owned a pet gibbon monkey named Amos during her RKO studio years); her turbulent relationship with Spencer Tracy (which lasted 27 years, from their falling in love on their first film together Woman Of The Year, to their last Guess Who's Coming To Dinner--Tracy died three weeks after completing the film); the decidely misguided label 'box-office poison' and her comeback with The Philadelphia Story; being the female Oscar champion; her longevity...


Hobbies:
Playing every imaginable sport known to man (including and especially tennis--also golf, swimming, diving, skiing, ice-skating, archery); taking showers; gardening; writing (particularly letters); sleeping; painting/sculpting; knitting; eating.



Quotes

LIFE

I've had a pretty remarkable life, but compared to my mother and father, I'm dull... The single most important thing anyone needs to know about me is that I am totally, completely the product of two damn fascinating individuals who happened to be my parents.

I was totally unaware that we were the second-rate sex.

There are things in my life which I would never discuss with anyone: I would never even discuss them with myself.

Freud was an unhealthy influence on America. I think people take themselves too seriously. Self-discipline is much more important.

'Isn't it fun getting older' is really a terrible fallacy. That's like saying I prefer driving an old car with a flat tyre.

You can't have the whole bargain. An actor should never marry, not even another actor. You're too involved with yourself, and your work is too demanding, to give the necessary amount of attention to another human being. Inevitably, that person feels left out. And becomes unhappy. We must never make people unhappy. Life's too short for that.

º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸ º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸ º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø

LOVE

Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get--only what you are expecting to give--which is everything. What you will receive in return varies. But it really has no connection with what you give. You give because you love and cannot help giving.

Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then.

º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸ º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸ º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø

ACTING

I'm a personality as well as an actress. Show me an actress who isn't a personality and you'll show me a woman who isn't a star.

Acting is the most minor of gifts. Never forget that they don't give a Nobel Prize for it, and that Shirley Temple was doing it perfectly adequately at the age of four.

On why she might prefer film to the theatre: If you didn't get it right the first time, you could do it again. Besides, I always thought theatre audiences were out to get me.

Two of an actress's greatest assets are love and pain. A great actress, even a good actress, must have plenty of both in her life.

I stole the old 'Holiday' test from RKO and ran it for the guests. I laughed when I saw myself, I led the laughter, and everyone just fell over--Cary, George, everyone, laughed themselves sick. I was so terrible! It was heartbreaking to see how eager, how hard I was trying to impress--too eager. I turned to George and said, 'Oh God, why did you hire me?'

On acting with Spencer Tracy: We balanced each other's natures. We were perfect representations of the American male and female. The woman is always pretty sharp, and she's needling the man, sort of slightly like a mosquito. The man is always slowly coming along, and she needles, and then he slowly puts out his big paw and slaps the lady down, and that's attractive to the American public. He's the ultimate boss of the situation, and he's very challenged by her. It isn't an easy kingdom for him to maintain. That--in simple terms--is what we did.

uncooperative with the press (circa early 1930s: "Do you have any children?"/"Yes, two white and three coloured."

º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸ º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸ º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø

SELF

I strike people as peculiar in some way, although I don't quite understand why--of course, I have an angular face, an angular body, and I suppose an angular personality which jabs into people.

Everyone thought I was bold and fearless, and even arrogant... but inwardly I was always quaking... I've never cared about how afraid I may have been inside--I've always done what I thought I should.

In my relationships, I know that I have qualities that are offensive to people--especially men. I'm loud and talkative and I get on to subjects that irritate. If I feel these things causing a break, I know something has to give. I never think the man is going to give--or anyone else for that matter--so I do. I just deliberately change. I just shut up--when every atom in me wants to speak up.

I never was a child and I never was a mother. I was an Aunt Kat. Sometimes the oldest in a big family turns out that way. I helped raise the others.

I'm like the Statue of Liberty to a lot of people. When you've been around so long, people identify their whole lives with you. They identify particularly their moments of hope and confidence. It's rather the style now to romanticise certain of the older actors.

I was never a member of the feminine club. I never knew what other girls were talking about.

I always wear slacks because of the brambles and maybe the snakes... So I look ghastly, do I? I don't care--so long as I'm comfortable.

On those famed legs: I wore tights onstage in 'As You Like It'. Why don't I show them in films? I'll tell you why, sir. I like to keep them a secret. I adore looking at them myself.

Stone-cold sober, I found myself absolutely fascinating.

Pooh--they told me when I smiled I looked like a horse but I've made it pay for years!




Others quotes

CARY GRANT (Sylvia Scarlett; Bringing Up Baby; Holiday; The Philadelphia Story)
She was this slip of a woman, skinny, and I never liked skinny women. But she had this thing, this air, you might call it, the most totally magnetic woman I'd ever seen, and probably have ever seen since. You had to look at her, you had to listen to her, there was no escaping her. But it wasn't just the beauty, it was the style. She's incredibly down to earth. She can see right through the nonsense in life. She cares, but about things that really matter.

Kate's a joy.

Working with her was incredible. You never saw such timing! She had a mind like a computer--every detail worked out! Yet computers don't have instincts, and her instincts were infallible. She taught me just about everything I know about comedy--how to time my lines, the solemn way to say something comic, and if there was anything she didn't know, which I doubt, then Howard Hawks could fill in the rest. (Cary seems to have a slightly different recollection of Kate's comic abilities than Hawks did!)

HUMPHREY BOGART (The African Queen)
Bogie: "Kate, you ugly skinny old bag of bones, why don't you come down to Earth?"
Kate: "Down where you're crawling? All right."

Here is either a twenty-four-carat nut or a great actress working mighty hard at being one.

Her shirttail is carefully torn for casual effect and is flapping out of her jeans. She pounces on the flora and fauna with a home movie camera like a kid going to his first Christmas tree, and she blunders within ten feet of a wild boar's tusks for a close-up of the best. About every other minute she wrings her hands in ecstasy and says, 'What divine natives! What divine morning glories!' Brother, your brow goes up... is this something from 'The Philadelphia Story'?

She was a true eccentric. And I found that no one is sexier than Katie, especially before a movie camera... and you remember she has legs like Dietrich's. The twenty years since I saw them on the stage in 'The Warrior's Husband' hadn't hurt them at all. You learn to brand as rank slander the crack that you can throw a hat at Katie and it'll hang wherever it hits.

ROBERT MORLEY (The African Queen)
When I used to be making up in my chair in the morning, she would, with only about three minutes before she was due on the set, snatch a pencil out of somebody's hand, make a quick mark with it on her face, not looking any different after she'd done it, and say, 'I'm made up now', and go on the set ahead of all of us! She fascinated me: she kept to her course. She was one of those curiously lucky aristocrats to whom life comes easily.

JOHN WAYNE (Rooster Cogburn & The Lady)
Goddamn, she's a great dame! She reminds me of me!

Imagine how she must have been at age 25 or 30. How lucky a man would have been to have found her.

NICK NOLTE (The Ultimate Solution Of Grace Quigley)
...a cranky old broad, but a lot of fun.

º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸ º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø,¸ º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ø

DIRECTORS/PRODUCERS

GEORGE CUKOR (A Bill of Divorcement, Little Women, The Philadelphia Story, Adam's Rib etc.)
On Kate's first big moment in films: The audeince could 'see' her now for the first time. They could see she moved beautifully, and it was at that point she became a great personality, the beginnings of a star, a major movie queen. But the audience had to have time to get used to her. She never was the sort of person the people could cotton to immediately."

It wasn't so much a question of letting her act as though she was on a stage. It was a question of bringing out that quality in her which was 'made for the screen'. Her face moved correctly for the screen, it had a light, a radiance. She had a natural aptitude.

Kate was quite good at rehearsals, but she didn't really come alive until the camera closed in on her. I had a rough idea she was doing well, but she sprang to life when I saw the rushes. Her odd awkwardness, her odd shifts of emphasis, these were proof of her being alive on the screen. She wasn't too smooth, she was fresh."

PANDRO BERMAN (Producer)
Kate was just as big a louse when I worked with her in her struggling days. I don't mean that literally--I was still fond of her. But God, she was tough! She was difficult--but even when she drove you mad, you had to admire her spunk, her guts. She got exactly what she wanted--wouldn't work any later than she thought she should, wanted triple overtime--but when she was on the set, she toiled like a bridge mender.

HOWARD HAWKS (Bringing Up Baby)
She has the most amazing body--like a boxer. It's hard for her to make a wrong turn. She's always in perfect balance. She has that beautiful coordination that allows you to stop and make a turn and never fall off balance. This gives her an amazing sense of timing. I've never seen a girl that had that odd rhythm and control.

"I remember one very amusing incident. Katie was so full of life she was talking and talking and talking. The assistant director called me about something, and she went on talking right over him. He called 'Quiet on the set', and she still went on. I told my assistant to tell everyone to sit down and just look at her. Finally she realised everyone was just looking at her, waiting for her to stop. She said 'What are we waiting for?' I said, 'I was just wondering when the parrot was going to stop talking!' She said, 'I want to have a word with you.' Then she beckoned me to come behind the set. She said, 'Howard, these people are friends of mine, and if you say things like that to me, you're liable to get yourself into trouble.' I glanced up, and there was an electrician in the flies above us with a big lamp. I called up to him, 'Eddie, if you had a choice of dropping that lamp on Miss Hepburn or me, which would you choose?' And he called back, 'Step aside, Mr Hawks!'

LAWRENCE WEINGARTEN (Without Love)
People always said to me, 'She's trying to do everything.' And my reply was, 'The thing I'm afraid of, and you should be afraid of, is that she can do everything.' Producer, director, cameraman! That's what she was! Her idea of everything was always better than you could ever have envisioned.

FRANK CAPRA (State Of The Union)
There are women and there are women--and then there is Kate. There are actresses and there are actresses--and then there is Hepburn. A rare professional-amateur, acting is her hobby, her living, her love. She is wedded to her vocation as a nun is to hers, and as competitive in acting as Sonya Henie was in ice-skating. No clock-watching, no humbug, no sham temperament. If she made up her mind to become a runner, she'd be the first woman to break the four-minute mile.

When Tracy and Hepburn played a scene, cameras, lights, microphones and written scripts ceased to exist. And the director did just what the crews and other actors did--sat, watched, and marvelled.

RALPH THOMAS (The Iron Petticoat)
She did a great deal of good by stealth. She doesn't like it to be known, but she helped the crew in all kinds of ways. If she saw that someone looked sad, she had a knack of tactfully finding out what was the matter, and putting it right. She could have done anything she wanted--she could operate the camera beautifully, knew how the tracks work, could light a set better than almost any cameraman around. She didn't interfere, but if things weren't right, she had an enormously succinct way of saying how it should be done. She spent most of her time on the set when she wasn't on call. She became my favourite person in the world.

SIDNEY LUMET (Long Day's Journey Into Night)
She went on, 'I know the way you work--honestly. I know you can't protect me photographically. Boris Kaufman [the photographer]--he doesn't do filters. If I come out ugly, I don't want to see that.' Such a devotion to her craft! Such self-knowledge of her own talent. I fell in love with her... it was just one glorious day of work after another.

STANLEY KRAMER (Guess Who's Coming To Dinner)
She and I had a strange relationship, because I loved Tracy, and I think he loved me, and, in a way, I felt for a while Kate and I were rivals. Isn't that a peculiar way to feel? ... It was rough. She had to run free, with and around a director. She was always creative, one of the two or three most creative artists I've ever worked with. I've never known anyone who matched her in terms of independence vis-a-vis a director. She thinks like a director... She was a driving worker. Work, work, work. She can work till everybody drops.

MICHAEL BENNETT (Choreographer of Coco)
Yet she would understand so much. I'd tell her emotionally what I was going for in routines, and then she would be wonderful... The thing to do was ask for just what I didn't want so she would go where I wanted her to go after all. When I told her to exit left, she'd exit right, and I wanted her to exit right all along!

ADMIRERS

JOHN BRYSON
Mean as a snake, dear as an angel, she is one of the great humans, better than the legend. She is all that she appears to be, with a face for Mount Rushmore.

EPHRAIM KATZ (The Film Encyclopedia)
From the moment she arrived in Hollywood, Hepburn projected an image quite different from that of the usual Hollywood star. She strode through town in slacks, refused to grant interviews, shunned autograph hounds, and kept her private life tightly sealed. She didn't mingle with the Hollywood crowd, preferring the company of a select group of intellectuals. Dignified and arrogant, she demanded and commanded the respect of studio executives, who were quite unaccustomed to her style and didn't quite know how to handle her.

ELAINE MAY
She really is about the only person who gives you the feeling that maybe it could be a woman's world.

ARTUR RUBINSTEIN (on Kate's virtuoso piano-playing in Song Of Love)
If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes and ears, I wouldn't have believed it! That woman is incredible! She actually does play almost as well as I do! And when she ends and I begin, only I in the whole world could tell the difference!

DAVID THOMSON (A Biographical Dictionary of Film)
Her best work has not dated a fraction of an inch: from 1932 to 1945, she had it in her to be the most interesting, difficult, challenging woman in American pictures. Why? I'd guess it had to do with her confusion, for she loved movies while disapproving of them.

Adevarul e ca imi place si mie Daniel Day Lewis. L-am vazut in "In the name of the father", "My left foot" - incredibil cum joaca - si recent, la un seminar aici in Oregon State University, cu o excelenta prezentare a unui profesor, in "The age of Innocence" - un Martin Scorsese extrem de unusual

Psychiatrist uses films to spur discussion with patients

ERIE, Pennsylvania (AP) -- When psychiatrist Fuat Ulus meets with patients, there's a chance Clint Eastwood will be there, too.

Not as a patient, but as a therapist of sorts.

Ulus has used Eastwood's Dirty Harry character to help patients address chronic anxiety. After all, there probably aren't many more anxious situations than when Inspector Harry Callahan is confronted with a thug holding a gun to a human shield and threatening to shoot.

Of course, Ulus doesn't advise patients to deal with their anxiety by brandishing a .44-caliber Magnum and declaring, "Go ahead, make my day." But watching the scene can spark discussion on coping with anxiety.

He has also used "The Deer Hunter" to help Vietnam veterans open up about post-traumatic stress disorder.

Ulus is among a handful of therapists who find movies or clips from movies helpful in treating patients.

"Patients are more receptive to discussing issues that are somewhat removed from them, played out by characters on a screen, rather than directly confronting those issues from their own lives," said Ulus, who has been using movie therapy for several years.

He recently wrote "Movie Therapy, Moving Therapy!", a guide for therapists interested in using movies, and is developing a weekly movie therapy program in the Erie area. It would be open to the public.

"Therapists have used movies for a long time, but in an informal way," said Birgit Wolz, an Oakland, California, therapist who's been using movies in group therapy sessions for nearly a decade.

In movie therapy, therapists won't simply advise depressed patients to rent, say, "It's a Wonderful Life."

"A good comedy is always nice when I don't feel good, but it's not going to have much therapeutic value," Ulus said.

The silver screen as a tool
The assumption that movies can be prescribed to treat a problem can backfire, Wolz said. "If you're renting a happy movie when you're sad, it can have the opposite effect" and make a sad person more depressed, she said.

Instead, therapists might use a movie or segment that illustrates a situation or condition that a patient is experiencing -- whether the patient realizes it or not. The patient might find it easier to confront his own issue after seeing how someone in a movie handles a similar situation.

"The movies really go to the deeper layers of the consciousness," Wolz said. "The movies are a catalyst for the experiences people go through."

John W. Hesley, a Dallas-Fort Worth area therapist who along with his wife, Jan G. Hesley, wrote the 1998 book, "Rent Two Films and Let's Talk in the Morning: Using Popular Movies in Psychotherapy," has a theory on why a problem that seems overwhelming might be less burdensome after movie therapy.

"You can talk about it sometimes easier if it's happening to someone else," he said.

While Ulus and Wolz say movie therapy is gaining in popularity, no one has concrete numbers on its use. A couple dozen people participate in Ulus' Internet mailing list on movie therapy.

Pam Willenz, a spokeswoman with the American Psychological Association, said the association doesn't take positions on treatment types, but recognizes film's use in therapy. The organization also doesn't track practitioners.

Therapists stress that movie therapy isn't a treatment in itself. Rather, they say, it's a tool that can be used with other treatments in individual and group settings.

Movies "are metaphors that have emotional truths for people," said Bernie Wooder, a London psychotherapist who's been using movies for about seven years.

New spin on old idea
The melding of movies and therapy was natural for Ulus, a 60-year-old self-described movie buff who estimates he's seen thousands of films. He immigrated to America in 1971 from Turkey, where he said his mother would take him to see several movies a week when he was growing up in the 1950s and 1960s and they helped him learn American culture.

In a given month, he might see 50 or 60 movies, some theater releases and other movies he's already seen, but from which he hopes to glean a lesson.

While movie therapy may not be widely known, its roots can be traced to bibliotherapy, which uses books in much the same way and was developed in the early part of the 1900s.

"I think movie therapy is a little more colorful and fascinating than bibliotherapy," said Ulus.

There's another benefit, too.

"It's a whole lot easier to have a patient watch a movie than to read a book," John Hesley said.

Charles Bronson dies at 81

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Rugged tough-guy actor Charles Bronson, a veteran of over 60 films, including the 1974 movie "Death Wish" has died at the age of 81, CNN reports.

CNN said on Sunday he died in Los Angeles after a bout with pneumonia.

Bronson, who was famous for his roles as a quiet, tough-talking hero in often violent films, was in 1972 named the biggest box office star by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and received the Gold Star Award as the film industry's top international star in 1979.

His craggy looks, menacing presence and understated acting style helped earn him applause in such films as "The Magnificent Seven" (1960), "The Great Escape" (1963) and "The Dirty Dozen" (1967).

His reputation was confirmed in such later movies as "Mr. Majestyk" (1974) as well as "Death Wish" and its sequels in 1981 and 1986.

Celebrul roman “Alchimistul” va fi in sfirsit ecranizat, a anuntat autorul cartii, Paulo Coelho, intr-un interviu acordat in Brazilia, tara sa natala. Filmul ii va avea in distributie pe actorul britanic Jeremy Irons si pe Madonna. Pelicula va fi produsa si regizata de Laurence Fishburne (cel care a jucat rolul lui Morpheus din seria “Matrix”), care va scrie si scenariul si va interpreta rolul principal. Bugetul este estimat la aproximativ 80 milioane de dolari. Pina acum, Coelho refuzase constant sa vinda drepturile de ecranizare pentru “Alchimistul”.

madonna in Alchimistul? :?

E carte preferata a Madonnei. :wink: A ei si a catorva fete de la decedatul Big Brother, precum si a catorva milioane de fani din lume... :twisted:

Despre Woody Allen din ceea ce am vazut, mie mi-a placut Manhattan, Hollywood ending, Annie Hall. Nu mi-a prea placut Blestemul scorpionului de jad iar Everything you always wanted to know about sex but were affraid to ask mi s-a parut o aberatie, interesanta dar numai pentru momentele cand exista disponibilitate pentru aberatii :D As vrea sa vaz si eu Everybody says I love you, New York stories si sa revad Husband and wives ca nu mai tin minte nimic... In general cred ca dintre filmele lui Woody Allen, imi plac cel mai mult cele cu intelectuali nevrozati care cu umor isi diseca relatiile, viata...

Vreau si eu Almodovar La flor de mi secreto si Femei la marginea unei crize de nervi!!!Are cineva o sursa de film european? Sau macar trilogia lui Kieslowski ca tot o cita cineva pe forum printre favoriti???

Exact astea imi plac si mie :lol:
Am mai vazut de curand Another woman de Woody Allen. E dintre filmele lui serioase; mi-a placut dar poate si mai bine, oricum influentele bergman erau destul de clare, vezi Fragii salbatici.
Ma pregatesc sa revad zilele astea Annie Hall, filmul meu preferat din ce a facut el, sa vad daca imi mai mentin prima parere.
In New York Stories, si celelalte 2 bucati de Scorsese si Copolla sunt bune.
Despre Almodovar, hmmm, imi place dar nu pot sa spun ca m-a entuziasmat pana acum.

bre, apropo, vad ca a aparut deja reclama la urmatorul Matrix, "revolutions" parca. Tot asa, aia zboara si bat tot ce misca :P
Azi am vazut "the Net" cu Sandra Bullock, si parca mi s-a parut mai realist decat Matrix. Macar are cap si coada.

Trecand la lucruri serioase, ce parere aveti despre scandalul care se face deja in jurul filmului ce va fi regizat de Mel Gibson, numit "The Passion"? Cine nu stie despre ce e vorba, uite un link, http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=34291 in rest cu un serch pe Google ai mii de pagini. Pe scurt, ideea de baza este ca acest film va inflama anrisemitismul (filmul are o conceptie mai originala, in care evreii sunt aratati vinovati cam en masse de calvarul lui Iisus)
