"Non Andare In Catina!"

Peter Sobczynski says... "If "Me and You" had be made by virtually any other filmmaker, I would have most likely written it off as an awkwardly contrived and executed minor-key melodrama and just left it at that. The problem with that is that it was directed and co-written by none other than the legendary Bernardo Bertolucci, the man behind such masterpieces as "The Conformist," "Last Tango in Paris," "1900" and "The Last Emperor," and not only is it his first feature film since 2004's "The Dreamers," it is the first film that he has made in his native Italian in over 30 years. With a pedigree like that, expectations are naturally raised in the heart of any serious moviegoer but the fact of the matter is that this is a disappointingly substandard work from a director whose very name conjures up, if not greatness, a sense of artistic ambition that is mostly lacking here."

Jay Seaver says... "SCREENED AT THE 2014 FANTASIA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL: As much as I would tell many that Norwegian filmmaker Tommy Wirkolka's "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" was an underrated bit of high-concept fun, I was not the biggest fan of his first international hit. That's a bit of a problem by some definitions of what it takes to give a movie a fair shake, as this sequel was definitely made to give those who liked "Dead Snow" more of that thing that they liked. It is that, although I give Tommy Wirkola plenty of credit in pushing it into being a "next step" rather than just a repeat." (more)
"The long bad night, indeed."

Brett Gallman says... "In terms of artists who have managed to wedge themselves up their own ass, I can’t think of a more toxic pairing than Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller, a couple of former wunderkinds turned exasperating self-parodies. Considering it took nine years to shepherd it to the screen, you’d assume a “Sin City” sequel would be a prime opportunity for both to return to form, and yet “A Dame to Kill For” feels like the sort of effort you would have expected from a cheap, quick cash-in from hacky imitators with no real feel for what made the original work. That it comes from the exact same creative team is almost astounding." (more)
"Insert "Naked City" Reference Here"
4 stars
Peter Sobczynski says... "To call "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's long-awaited followup to their groundbreaking 2005 adaptation of Miller's acclaimed series of noir-influenced graphic novels, "lurid" would be like calling fried chicken "tasty," the new Taylor Swift song "catchy" and Eva Green "attractive"--those words may be technically accurate but they hardly begin to scratch the surface in doing justice to the subjects at hand (as I will be demonstrating later on in this review in regards to at least one of those premises). Seemingly containing a higher concentration of sex, violence and ultra-hard-boiled dialogue than any single movie since the original "Sin City," this is a film that seems to have been designed to make audiences cheer with delight or swoon in horror at the excesses that it revels in from the very first frame to the last. Although it may not be the unequivocal knockout that its predecessor was, it still packs enough of a giddily grisly punch to make for a ridiculously entertaining good time, though you might want to make sure that your multiplex is equipped with defibrillators in the even that it proves to be too much for more delicate moviegoers."
