i watched a high-quality bootleg of Roger Waters with a "surrogate band" performing the Wall from Chicago. The ADL was belching cries of "anti-semitism" after opening night in Toronto as the animation featured Hexagrams dropping from a plane followed by dollar signs.The planes are also seen dropping "christian" crosses, the star and crescent, as well as the Shell Oil logo. Have a nice day Mr ADL, you attention-mongering, useless waste of space. The show is stellar and thoroughly updated to reflect the walls of fear and propaganda in the modern world. Waters performs a duet w/ himself during Mother, in which old footage from Sheppards Gate is blended w/ real time.
Not a swastika to be seen, yet the hammer and sickle has some prominence. An inflatable pig is seen floating over the audience with a hammer and sickle on it proclaimimg, "everything is going to be ok, just keep consuming"

Black Swan! It's an incredible psychological thriller, a wonderful poetic tragedy. I highly recommend it for the less squeamish amongst us.

Thank you for that one Nechesh, was on my list, but what do you mean by "the less squeamish amongst us"?

Just watched Blade Runner again, brilliant movie with a great soundtrack.

In germany Black Swan will start in January. Seems to be bothoetic and rude. Not to fall in depression after watching, I would like to know, if it is too hard for Natalie Portman in the end or is the conflict solved in an aggreeable manner?

@LR . . . as with all Aronofsky films there are some scenes that might make some people feel a bit uncomfortable. The Portman character has some bloody hallucinations that might be hard to watch for some. They are not gratuitous or unnecessary to the story though.
Rise, i have no idea what you mean by "rude". I found nothing rude in the film. I also don't think it would be fair to answer your question. That would be a bit of a spoiler, would it not.
It should be noted that Aronofsky (Pi, Requiem for a Dream, The Wrestler) is not really known for making "happy" or "feel good" films. If that's what you are looking for try "Tangled". :-]

As Tangled is recommended as a boring teenager film, it might be the right , Nechesh !

The Tourist (:
Though it was very much criticized in germany, I think with an other point of view it might be an ironic remake of the US crime comedies in the sixties, playing in Italy or France.(With Cary Grant and so on.)
It is true, that Angela Jolie only has the task to strut around, but the story remains thrilling, and Jonny Depp is undestroyable (unkaputtbar).

Yesterday I saw "King's Speech" with Colin Firth at his best and a wonderful Queen Mum Helena Bonham Carter. 10 Points!
A real psychotherapy without psychopills.
The film is also agreeable for non-royalists.

Masterpiece Thomas !
Incredible Bruno Kremer.
Coco et Igor - Jan Kounen -
Unless the film is rather centered on Stravinsky. Incredible opening scene of the first performance of the "coronation of spring" with the police obliged to intervene to separate members of the audience. Loved it.

Thanks for that mini-review Rise. I wouldn't normally go to see anything about royalty but it does look good.

Thank rise ! I should have take time to have a look at the trailer, this one will be the next ! :-]
Hereafter/ Au delÃ Clint Eastwood
I red so numerous negative criticisms about it, that only my confidence in Eastwood led me to the cinema.
and finally, I understood why. This film is kindda mirroring your own questions about a possible after life, rather than trying to answer them.
Anyone will put in it what he really hopes or fear.
Anyway, i only can speak for myself, I loved it.
Eastwood is an explorator of human soul like no other.
to be recommanded to those who liked Matt damon in "Will hunting", the slow rythm in " Madison road".
Wonderful BO as usual;

Watched Birdy last night with some friends, you can easily guess why.
I have no ida why but the film was uncomfortable for me and left me feeling abit strange.
I have no problems with any of the films subjects but it just didn't sit with me.
So we watched From Dusk Till Dawn afterwards and had some drinks, was fun!

Last night I had a look at The Green Hornet, a joke for all, who like a mix of James Bond Style and Pink Panther.
I had to laugh a lot!
Then I saw Black Swan. Went a bit on my nerves, but remarkable to understand our times.
Looking forward to 'Pina' from Wim Wenders about the famous choreographer of Wuppertal.First shown on the Berlinale.
