"Kramer vs. Kramer" (1979)

Kramer vs. Kramer (1979) best picture, Dustin Hoffman, best actor, Meryl Streep, best supporting actress, best supporting actress nominee, Jane Alexander, best director, Robert Benton, best writing, material from another medium, Robert Benton and best young actor from Young Actor Awards, Justin Henry. How can you have great acting, great writing, nominations for best editing and best cinemaphotography and have a bad film? The answer is, you can't. I enjoyed this film even more than the first time I saw it. The story, briefly, is that Hoffman plays an ad exec who lives for his job, and doesn't really appreciate his wife, Streep, and son Justin Henry. Then, Streep, who feels trapped and alone, leaves. Over the next 18 months, Hoffman becomes a real father, and not just a good one, but a great one. Then Streep shows back up and fights for custody. What made this film great, besides the incredible talent, was it honesty.

Turns out there was a good reason for the honesty. Hoffman was going through his divorce when he was offered the script. He wanted to turn it down, but reluctantly agreed when he was told that Benton and Stanley R. Jaffe would work with him for as long as it took to rewrite for the honesty Hoffman wanted before he would ply the role. Even after principle photography started, improvisation was the rule, rather than the exception.

In an amusing scene, company attorney Jobeth Williams ends up in bed with Hoffman. She gets up in the middle of the night to go home, walks starkers into the hallway, and bumps into Hoffman's son. Very long clear shot of her breasts and buns. Maltin says 4 stars, and I am chiming in with an A. Even if you hate character driven drama, you will probably find much to enjoy in this film. It is rated 7.4/10 at IMDB, well below many films that are nowhere near as good.

    "Abre los ojos" (1997)

    Abre los ojos (1997), English title Open Your Eyes is a first rate Sci Fi thriller from Spain. IMDB reades have this at 8.0/10, which is amazing for a foreign language film. Berardinelli, in an excellent factual review awards 3 1/2 stars, and Apollo readers say 94%. Giving a plot summary without spoilers would be as hard as doing the same for Fight Club, so if you are dieing to know the plot, check out Berardinelli. Penelope Cruz shows her breasts, and Najwa Nimri has very brief breast exposure for sure, and clear but possibly double exposure (image 4).

    The film examines the nature of reality, the importance of physical appearance, and what constitutes happiness. In director Alejandro Amenábar's second effort, he has created a unique and brilliant piece of cinema and is young enough to have dozens more films in his future. Because this film transcends many genres effortlessly, I give it a full B, and would award more except for the subtitle drawback.

    The Hasselhoff watch: Day 2 

    Why Do They Call It Love When They Mean Sex? (1997) is a film that would be hard to imagine in many countries besides Spain. It's a sweet romantic comedy about a rich kid who (eventually) falls in love with a peep show girl, and the deceptions they pull on his parents. It plays out like any other pg-rated comedy, except for the porn! Their romantic reunion, after having been separated, occurs on Christmas Eve, with soft music, and swirling lights, but on stage while dozens of horny guys watch them and jerk off!

    Strange combination, but strangely effective.

    Orphans (1997) is one funny mother of a black comedy, in the general spirit of Trainspotting, but no nudity. The say "cunt" every third word, but we never actually see one.

    Choke (2001) has Dennis Hopper and Michael Madsen. I think the story on the movie is this: Madsen and Hopper cleared one day out of their schedules to shoot the film, and whoever was supposed to bring the script that day overslept, or possibly died, or possibly was killed by Madsen and/or Hopper after they read it. 

    • Kaylynn. Sorry, she ain't got any more names. Just Kaylynn.

    Graphic Response
  • Jennifer Connelly in "Of Love and Shadows" (1994). There is only the slightest hint of nipple in her love scene with Antonio Banderas. Not worth the rental, even for Connelly fans.

    Be sure to pay Graphic Response a visit at his website.

    Fashion models are beauties... that's a given, and are celebs of some sort, and they tend to give up the goodies often enough. So here are a few:

  • Scrawny little Italian babe Alessandra Meloni starts things off, with both breasts showing.

  • Caroline Murphy and Emma Balfour show up with super pokies.

  • Eva Herzigova in some right weird clothing.

  • Katia Smutniak gives us a couple of good looks at her hooters. Figured with a name like hers she couldn't be much of a prude. (1, 2)

  • My personal faves are these scans of Kim Lemanton. The original images and colors were fantastic and Kim's bod is nothing to sneeze at. (1, 2, 3)

  • Next are a couple of runway pics of Maria Reyes in see-through stuff. (1, 2)

  • Martina Klein in a couple of scans, one a collage of runway pics and the other a picture that started out in some sepia print but looks a lot better in good ol' B & W. Boobs and partially revealed butt here. (1, 2)

  • Natalie Cox wears a shirt cut down to her belly button but gives up nothing.

  • Then there is a quartet of Natalie Kriz scans in a T-back bikini and a thong but with arms in the dreaded hiding the hooters pose. (1, 2, 3, 4)

  • The next two babes give up the goodies but, in all honesty, who cares? Nieves Mallor (1, 2) and Renata Maciel sail right past skinny and dock somewhere near emaciated.

  • Petra Nemcova is blue, real blue... and topless.

  • Sierra Huisman and Tasha Tilberg are wearing things you can see through.

  • Stacy Ness, on the other hand, is wearing nothing and showing just about everything in a tasty trio of scans. (1, 2, 3)

  • A quartet of Tatiana Dragovic scans, the first three in an interesting B & W approach and the fourth in color. (1, 2, 3, 4)

  • And we end this exercise with Tina Hebellinck doing the topless back stroke and Vanessa Greca, cute as a button and sporting a pair of puffy pokies.

  • and ...
    Penélope Cruz

    Najwa Nimri

    Beautiful collages by Dann featuring each actress topless in scenes from "Abre los ojos"...aka Open Your Eyes (1997). The upcoming movie "Vanilla Sky" is the American remake of "Abre los ojos", directed by Cameron Crow, with Penélope once again staring in the leading role.

    (1, 2, 3, 4)

    aka Cassandra Peterson, pushing the limits of cleavage without exposure in scenes from her 1988 feature film, "Elvira, Mistress of the Dark". Great 'caps by Penman.

    Angelina High Her bare and lovely breasts are easily one of the only decent things about the horror/soft core flick, "Embrace the Darkness" (1998). Very nice work by Mr.D.

    Júlia Lemmertz Spaz first brought 'caps from the movie "A Glass of Rage" (1999) (aka Um Copo de Cólera) to our attention back in the 8/13 issue. Today, it's our other Canadian comrade, Snowblind delivering the goods.

    Here she is getting it on with her real-life husband Alexandre Borges in the Brazilian film. Including an explicit sex scene with a "money shot".

    Ming-Na Or as she was known for most of her life and film career, Ming-Na Wen. Here she is topless in "One Night Stand". Thanks to Hugo.
