THRILLER Movie Scene of the Day: You’re Gonna Need a Bigger Boat. From JAWS (1975)

The crew gets their first face-to-face look at the massive shark.

FILM DESCRIPTION:
Based on Peter Benchley’s best-selling novel, Steven Spielberg’s 1975 shark saga set the standard for the New Hollywood popcorn blockbuster while frightening millions of moviegoers out of the water. One early summer night on fictional Atlantic resort Amity Island, Chrissie decides to take a moonlight skinny dip while her friends party on the beach. Yanked suddenly below the ocean surface, she never returns. When pieces of her wash ashore, Police Chief Brody (Roy Scheider) suspects the worst, but Mayor Vaughn (Murray Hamilton), mindful of the lucrative tourist trade and the approaching July 4th holiday, refuses to put the island on a business-killing shark alert. After the shark dines on a few more victims, the Mayor orders the local fishermen to catch the culprit. Satisfied with the shark they find, the greedy Mayor reopens the beaches, despite the warning from visiting ichthyologist Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) that the attacks were probably caused by a far more formidable Great White. One more fatality later, Brody and Hooper join forces with flinty old salt Quint (Robert Shaw), the only local fisherman willing to take on a Great White–especially since the price is right. The three ride off on Quint’s boat “The Orca,” soon coming face to teeth with the enemy.

PAULINA (LA PATOTA) – What the critics are saying about it.

paulina.jpg100% of critics LOVE this film and say it’s a must see film.

Paulina, the daughter of an eminent left-wing judge, suspends her legal education and the prospects of a promising political career to travel to an indigenous community of extreme poverty on Argentina’s border with Paraguay and Brazil. She is determined to nurture ‘from the inside’ a project of civil rights education, but her Guarani-speaking high-school students resist her civics lessons – and she quickly learns that gaining their trust won’t be an easy task.These subtly illuminating encounters reverberate in the aftermath of the central event of the film – a harrowing sexual assault by a group of young men. Paulina’s unfathomable actions, and the limits of social justice, are examined unflinchingly in this ‘social thriller’ of will and sacrifice.

Worth seeing, even if its basic plot repeatedly stalls. It is a thoughtful movie, but not necessarily a fulfilling one.

June 23, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

As stinging as a slap in the face, “Paulina” feels as if it’s waking you from a stupor, then shaking you, demanding that you ask yourself some impossible questions about idealism and justice.

June 22, 2017 | Full Review…

A fierce performance from Dolores Fonzi, as a heroine whose actions baffle those around her, helps to hold this conversation-starter together, but viewers’ own mileage and perceptions will vary — which is clearly by design.

September 16, 2015 | Full Review…

Driven by a powerfully internalized performance from Dolores Fonzi as the title character, Paulina eschews straightforward answers in favor of questioning observation.

September 16, 2015 | Full Review…

It’s unsettling and disconcerting in its complex examination of the gray area that lies between the morals we conceptually hold and the actions we’re willing to perform to affirm those beliefs in the world.

—–

Fonzi’s performance is perfectly judged; she knows when to hold back, convincing us of her character’s sanity, and yet we never lose sight of her strength, of her power.
