Alright here's the story. Most of you probably don't know this, but Milos Forman (the Academy Award winning director of Amadeus and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) recently directed a new film called Goya's Ghosts. I was skeptical about it because rottentomatoes.com showed that the critics gave it a 29% out of 100%. A score like that is considered nightmarishly low. Only films like Norbit or Bratz make it into that category. The lowest score i've ever seen a 95%+ deserving film get, is 70% or 75%. Not 29%!!! So, after watching the trailer many times and being very impressed by it, I was confused as to why the critics were giving it the reviews that they were. I knew that trailers can be misleading, but still, it looked really good. So yesterday, I watched the film. It shared many things with Forman's earlier Best Picture winners from the 70's and 80's. Mainly: Flawless costume design. Breathtaking acting. Music utilized in such a way as to enhance the emotion in many scenes, by having it enter on the beat of a door closing, or heighten the intensity of a characters dialog. And last but certainly not least, a way of directing the scenes and structuring the film that makes it completely void of boring moments. That's right, not a single boring second, from beginning to end. So now, with the film being over, I had a huge grin on my face, because this was obviously a work of a matured Milos Forman (23 years after he directed the eternal masterpiece Amadeus). However, I was also pissed off because it became frighteningly clear that some critic somewhere, or a group of critics, intentionally made his film fail. This film should've been at the Oscars in 2007. Milos Forman comes out with the next Amadeus, and nobody knows, because the critics slammed it. So now, the favor I ask of you is this: Please, when the DVD is released on February 26th in the U.S., buy six copies of it. One for yourself, and five for friends. Give them away. Make sure each of your friends watches the copy you give them, and buys five more to give to their friends. If just five of us begin this process by buying six DVD's each, within 5 layers, 80,000 DVD's will be sold. I beg of you to participate in this motion to bring this modern masterpiece into the public eye, and i'll tell you why it means so much to me and why it's so important to me that this is done. I'm an aspiring Film Maker, and I know that if I made a film like Goya's Ghosts, and it bombed because critics gave it a score that presents it as a film on par with Norbit, i'd want the public to protest by purchasing rediculous amounts of DVD's and spreading them throughout the country. The score that the critics gave this film is so unrealistic it's inconceivable. Something went wrong! That much is clear. And it's not fair to Milos Forman. He's my favorite director, and I want him to be able to make a new film soon. I myself will be buying 10 copies of the DVD on February 26th when it's released. Thanks for your support. p.s. I am not Milos Forman, Saul Zaentz, Natalie Portman, Javier Bardem, or any other person affiliated with making Goya's Ghosts. Nor am I even related to any such person.
