Movie Reviews

Country matters
love God | ca | 10/12/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is advertised as being a series of uplifiting stories about rural country life in old England. I felt mislead. This movie is anything but uplifitng. The stories focus on sexual malcontents,and portrays all poverty striken farmers as peculiar, and incapable of living a moral lifestyle. You will be dissapointed."
A Common Mistake
John A. Atkins | Lancaster | 06/04/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Can I please correct the error that several reviews here have made. Country Matters was NOT made by the BBC, but by Granada Television. American viewers often make the mistake of thinking that all Masterpiece Theater presentations come from the BBC. They do not."
The Mill: one gem in a ton of overburden
neotroglodyte | desert southwest | 05/25/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"
The Mill is the one gem in the collection, and what a rare gem it is. One hour of movie-making brilliance.
A rough promise carefully sifted from the human sands; separated; graded; properly dopped; beautifully faceted, polished and set.
It is one of the most psychologically brutal pieces ever filmed. Its immediate after-taste left me ashamed of my culture, gender and biological family. This gustatory sensation lingers still, after one viewing and the lapse of some 36+ years.
