Back to 1983

Ma sélection

1- Scarface (Brian de Palma)

image

Roger Ebert 09.12.1983:
Most thrillers use interchangeable characters, and most gangster movies are more interested in action than personality, but « Scarface » is one of those special movies, like « The Godfather, » that is willing to take a flawed, evil man and allow him to be human. Maybe it’s no coincidence that Montana is played by Al Pacino, the same actor who played Michael Corleone.

Roger Ebert 04.11.1983

« Testament » may be the first movie in a long time that will make you cry. It made me cry. And seeing it again for the second time, knowing everything that would happen, anticipating each scene before it came, I was affected just as deeply.

But the second time I was able to see more clearly that the movie is more than just a devastating experience, that it has a message with a certain hope. The film is about a suburban American family, and what happens to that family after a nuclear war. It is not a science-fiction movie, and it doesn’t have any special effects, and there are no big scenes of buildings blowing over or people disintegrating. We never even see a mushroom cloud. We never even know who started the war. Instead, « Testament » is a tragedy about manners: It asks how we might act toward one another, how our values might stand up, in the face of an overwhelming catastrophe.

10- Le retour du Jedi (Richard Marquand)

image

Roger Ebert 25.05.1983:
Other movies might approach the special effects. Other action pictures might approximate the sense of swashbuckling adventure. But in « Return of the Jedi, » as in « Star Wars » and « The Empire Strikes Back, » there’s such a wonderful density to the canvas. Things are happening all over. They’re pouring forth from imaginations so fertile that, yes, we do halfway believe in this crazy Galactic Empire long ago and far, far away.
