Unbearable Lightness of Being, The (1988)

Title: Unbearable Lightness of Being, The
Released: 1988
Genre: Drama
Runtime: 171 min
Country: USA
Language: English

Tagline: A Lovers Story

Plot Summary: Tomas is a doctor and a lady-killer in 1960s Czechoslovakia, an apolitical man who is struck with love for the bookish country girl Tereza; his more sophisticated sometime lover Sabina eventually accepts their relationship and the two women form an electric friendship. The three are caught up in the events of the Prague Spring (1968), until the Soviet tanks crush the non-violent rebels; their illusions are shattered and their lives change forever.

Comments: Very good movie. Ireally like daniel day-lewis and juliet binoche. i also think lena olin is one the sexiest women i've ever seen so i had to see this movie. i liked the other films i've seen of phillip kaufman but i'd have to say this is the best i've seen. very good film. the acting is good. loved the story though i've not read the book. binoche is very good and so is day-lewis. olin is on fire. recommended to people who like smart sexy movies.

Romeo Is Bleeding (1993)

Title: Romeo Is Bleeding
Released: 1993
Genre: Crime / Drama / Thriller
Runtime: 100 min
Country: USA / UK
Language: English

Tagline: The story of a cop who wanted it bad and got it worse.

Plot Summary: A corrupt police sergeant who supplies tips on the locations of safeguarded witnesses to the Mob bites off more than he can chew when he attempts to assassinate a beautiful but ruthless Russian hitwoman in this no holds barred noir thriller.

Comments: Lena Olin gives the best performance of any actress cast in the role of a villain with Theresa Russell in The Black Widow running a close second. It's one of the few times where a woman is shown as being just as evil and back stabbing as the men, instead of the standard whore, mistress, or long suffering wife. Normally one has to look to Hong Kong to find strong female leads older than 30. This movie is a must have for any fan of Mafia drama. On a personal note, if anyone has worked behind the scenes of this film, I'd love to know what model revolver Ms. Olin used on the set. BUY THIS FILM!
