Don't Let Me Die On A Sunday Review


Terrible
There is a particular kind of pleasure in seeing a really bad movie -- at least you have the advantage of expressing anger, frustration, or resentment --a visceral response of some kind, no matter how unsatisfying that is.

Don't Let Me Die on a Sunday won't even give you the satisfaction of disgust or hatred; it is simply too dull for that.

Good
Am I supposed to be excited that Francis Ford Coppola's son is directing his first film? Apparently everyone else is. Maybe Roman Coppola will become the genius director his father is. But if he wants to prove it, he's going to have to do a bit better than CQ.

CQ stars mostly people you've never heard of in a movie about making movies that were never actually made. Don't worry, it's really not that confusing. Boring, yes, but certainly not confusing. Jeremy Davies plays Paul, a struggling young director, who funds his personal film by working as a film editor on a cheesy, big budget science-fiction movie. But his director doesn't have an ending, and eventually Paul finds himself gifted with the job.

Le Pacte Du Silence Review


Weak
Psychological thrillers about twins are weird enough -- now we have to have it in French? This flashback-infested, circular, and borderline-nonsensical set piece gives us Gérard Depardieu as a priest and a doctor and Élodie Bouchez as a crazy girl and a nun... only Depardieu's doctor/priest is one person, not two, like Bouchez. Taking trips that venture all the way from voodoo country to the inner workings of the Catholic church, this silly thriller's payoff is so tepid that it hardly makes the frustrating journey there worth it. Skip.

The Dreamlife Of Angels Review


Weak
Two penniless French girls who work the assembly lines become friends. In a nutshell, that's about it. They're the angels. Their dreamlife involves their really messed-up love life and uncomfortable friendship with one another. Not overly bad, just not a lot going on in this sleepy melodrama.

Cq Review


OK

At once an homage to and a spoof of two signature styles of late 1960s cinema, "CQ" is an enjoyably eccentric entry into feature filmmaking by a writer-director who has the art form in his blood -- Roman Coppola, Francis Ford Coppola's son.

The title refers to an old Morse Code and ham radio signal sent to seek any kind of response ("seek you"), and it's reflective of the movie's main character. An ambivalent aspiring filmmaker (Jeremy Davies) seeking inspiration in 1969 Paris, he's torn between his desire to make a conceptual, black-and-white New Wave art film and his day job editing a studio's cheesy, sexploitive "Barbarella"-like B-movie.

Gritting his teeth over silly science fiction by day, he spends his nights locked in his bathroom, burning through miles of "borrowed" film on rambling autobiographic monologues while his live-in girlfriend frets in frustration. Davies' dilemma comes to a head when the manic director of the sexy sci-fi flick (played with comedic panache by Gerard Depardieu) is fired over creative differences.
