comments:
It's hard not to like a celebrity like Holly Hunter. Her infectious personality and spunky energy shine through in interviews, while her command of her craft permits her to keep those traits -- like all her others -- under control if the part she's portraying demands it.

Although Hunter's single greatest claim to fame is her Oscar-winning embodiment of mute immigrant mother Ada McGrath in Jane Campion's The Piano (1993), her trump card as an actress is versatility. Whether she's playing a comically hyperactive, baby-snatching cop (Raising Arizona) or a twisted sexpot (Crash), Hunter steals almost every scene she's in.

Comments: Very good film. I really liked this movie and i really like billy crudup in this movie. he gives the best performance i've seen from in this film. this really isn't a drug movie but more a coming of age film about people who happen to do drugs. dennis leary and dennis hopper have very good cameos.

Piano, The (1993)

Title: Piano, The
Released: 1993
Genre: Drama / Romance
Runtime: 121 min
Country: Australia / New Zealand / France
Language: English / Sign Language / Maori

Plot Summary: It is the mid-nineteenth century. Ada is a mute who has a young daughter, Flora. In an arranged marriage she leaves her native Scotland accompanied by her daughter and her beloved piano. Life in the rugged forests of New Zealand's South Island is not all she may have imagined and nor is her relationship with her new husband Stewart. She suffers torment and loss when Stewart sells her piano to a neighbour, George. Ada learns from George that she may earn back her piano by giving him piano lessons, but only with certain other conditions attached. At first Ada despises George but slowly their relationship is transformed and this propels them into a dire situation.

Comments: A sensual and surprising film. Jane Campion's Oscar-winning movie follows Ada (played by Holly Hunter), an immigrant to the Australian outback and an arranged marriage, who has not spoken for years and lives her life through the sound of her piano. Her husband (played by Sam Neill) is a man without much understanding, who tries to break the connection between his new wife and her piano; in contrast to him is the wild illiterate Baines (played by Harvey Keitel), a tattooed loner, who reaches into Ada's soul and helps her to regain contact with her emotions and ultimately, her voice too.

The film is visually compelling, with its muted colours and wide open spaces, and uses the soundtrack by Michael Nyman in such a way so all the elements fit together. Keitel and Hunter give excellent performances within a sensitive and sensual screenplay, while Anna Paquin is impressive as Ada's wise daughter, always watching and always aware. Campion managed to make the story touching, involving, and sexy, and it well deserved the plaudits heaped on it.

Crash (1996)

Title: Crash
Released: 1996
Genre: Drama / Thriller
Runtime: 100 min
Country: Canada / USA
Language: English

Tagline: Love in the dying moments of the twentieth century.

Plot Summary: Based on the 1973 novel by J. G. Ballard. James and Catherine Ballard are a married couple whose sex life has been reduced to recounting tales of mutual infidelity to turn each other on. One night, James causes a head-on collision with a car carrying Dr. Helen Remington, killing her husband and severely injuring her and himself. Subsequent encounters with each other find that they are oddly sexually aroused by the danger of car accidents and potential accidents, and, with Catherine, soon fall in with a cult of car crash fetishists. The group is led by Vaughan, a former scientist twisted by his own disfigurement in an accident, and, as a result, a man obsessed with car crashes as a liberation of sexual energy. Vaughan inducts the Ballards and Dr. Remington into his surreal world of sex in the back seats of cars, re-enactments of famous car crashes (i.e. James Dean and Jayne Mansfield), viewing photos of accident victims and screenings of collision videos as pornography, and fender benders as mating rituals.

Comments: Crash is the orgasm for the life. Ballard's cult novel was directed by the 'cult master' david cronenberg.it brings us to the point; most of the people could have considered the movie boring,pornographic or non-sense,well that's because most of the people are boring,non-sense,etc.james spader,holly hunter,deborah karah unger,elias koteas and rosanna arquette form a kickass quintet in an excellent movie focuses on sexuality and modern life in an automobile's perspective.10 out of 10.
