(2009 Zack Snyder)

For those obsessed with the critically acclaimed graphic novel (which would be almost anyone who has read it), or for audiences looking for a stylish action film, WATCHMEN is worth--well--watching. But those who thought THE DARK KNIGHT was too gloomy should stay far away from Zack Snyder’s film. As far as superhero movies go, this graphic adaptation of the comic book series from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons makes even Christopher Nolan’s Batman films look like Saturday morning fare.

Mammoth and mazelike, WATCHMEN follows a group of retired costumed heroes living in an alternate 1985 where Nixon is still president and fear of nuclear doomsday permeates the air. When a hero named the Comedian (an excellent Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is murdered, his former colleague--the unhinged, masked Rorschach (a perfectly creepy Jackie Earle Hayley)--begins investigating who is behind the death. The other masked crimefighters--Silk Spectre 2 (Malin Ackerman), Ozymandias (Matthew Goode), Nite Owl 2 (Patrick Wilson), and Dr. Manhattan (Billy Crudup), a godlike being who is the only one with actual superpowers--soon learn that there may be a plot to rid the world of their kind.

Way of the Gun
(2000 Christopher McQuarrie)

Two professional criminals, Parker (Ryan Phillippe) and Longbaugh (Benicio Del Toro), think they've devised the plan of a lifetime: kidnap Robin (Juliette Lewis), a pregnant surrogate mother, then collect on the ransom money from the parents-to-be. However, when Parker begins to take a shine to the kidnapping victim, the plan begins to crumble. But it is not until a heavily armed group of mob hit men arrive with the ransom money that Parker and Longbaugh realize they've cooked up a spicy stew of chaos, violence, and confusion. The unborn baby tops it off, making Christopher McQuarrie's The Way of the Gun a terrifically tense nail-biter.

Vi som älskade varann så mycket
(1974 Ettore Scola)

originaltitel: C'eravamo tanto Amati

Stefania Sandrelli stars in this deliberately Felliniesque comedy.

Sandrelli plays the longtime object of three friends' affections. The film traces the interrelationships of those friends -
Vittorio Gassman, Nino Manfredi and Satta Flores - over a period of thirty years, beginning with their involvement in the wartime Resistance. In addition to freely quoting from "La Dolce Vita", director Scola also calculatedly evokes memories of Fellini's "I Vitteloni". As a bonus, the film offers affectionate homages to several other neorealist filmmakers, including Roberto Rossellini and Vittorio de Sica.
