Judgement at Nuremberg Review

Judgement at Nuremberg is a fine film by a fine director. Kramer’s achievement is that everything in Judgement at Nuremberg reminds us that the Nazi’s used every facet of civilization, no matter how minute, to foster their extermination of their enemies, to inculcate it as an ordinary part of life. That was why judges were chosen to portray the issue of “obeying orders” versus “human decency.” Herr Rolf is “forced” to defend the worst criminals imaginable, and yet his very defense and the principles behind it are abused in the process, used as a weapon against the very law they represent. Thus did the Nazis prevail with the willing acquiescence of the German people, and the abominable disregard of the rest of the world.

The Bridge on the River Kwai Review

The Bridge on the River Kwai, David Lean’s first epic, a genre he would later be associated with more than any other. Previously having made his mark as a director of deep and often psychological dramas, Lean’s easy transition into bigger pictures reflects the change that was taking place in the genre itself, moving from the grandiose spectacle of De Mille et al, towards the “intimate” epic of the late 50s and early 60s. We are also here seeing the development of the war, or rather, the anti-war picture. Continue reading The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957 – Free Download) English DVD-RIP

Ran Review

Akira Kurosawa’s 1985, Ran, is based one of Shakespeare’s greatest works, King’s Lear. The film proudly stands along with his other classic such as Seven Samurai, Yojimbo, Roshomon, Sanjuro and the Hidden Fortress. He is a master in the art of filmmaking, no one can film an epic battle scene quite like Kurosawa. Ran is recognized as the most expensive film ever made by Akira Kurosawa, it was at that time, Japan’s most expensive film ever. Being at the age of 75, he still showed us, he’s one of the best in the business. Continue reading Ran (1985 – Free Download) Japanese DVD-RIP
