As cheap as the ending felt, the rest of the film seemed like it was trying to raise some questions if not answer them. Obviously Roman Polanski has made some of the greatest films of all time, and there is a small group that calls this a very underrated film. So was there a whole bunch of stuff I missed the first time?
Another excellent write-up, as usual, Chris! You know, I'm not really certain if I've seen this film or not but you've certainly made me curious about it. I confess I'm not a particular Johnny Depp fan -- although I loved "Sleepy Hollow," one of the few Tim Burton films I actually do like let's not even talk about "Dark Shadows" -- but I got a kick out of Lena Olin when she played the heroine's amoral Russian mother on the TV spy show "Alias," one of my favorites, so I'm going to look for this flick just to watch Olin in it.
Hey everyone! This review is also at Scars Magazine. This film is the best I seen for a very long time.
A woman lifts her skirt to show a man part of her panties and garter belt. A woman fondles a man's clothed crotch and kisses him passionately, then they fall on a couch and presumably have intercourse the scene ends as he lifts her skirt and reveals her bare buttocks in a close-up shot; in the next scene he's wearing underwear with his pants at his ankles and her dress is unbuttoned but we don't see any nudity. We see the bare backside of a woman who's undressing, a shirtless man and a man's bare chest through his unbuttoned shirt; we also glimpse, at a distance, a couple of bare backsides of people wearing capes their capes flip up as they're running.
When he is hired by the wealthy Boris Balkan Frank Langella to track down two matching books to Balkan's priceless and mysterious 17 th century Satanic text, The Nine Gates of the Kingdom of Shadows, Corso sets off on a quest across Europe that is at once terrifying and fascinating. The secret of the books holds extraordinary powers, or so Balkan believes. And nothing will get in his way. When Einstein said, imagination is more important than knowledge, he was surely referring to the movies.
