    Movie directed by the critics darling Hal Hartley. I haven't watched his other movies, but this one sucks. Tries to get a Tarantino vibe, but it fails and it's just pretty boring.

    o mundo do Hal Hartley é um mundo em que coisas muito estranhas podem acontecer e acontecem a qualquer momento, um sonho com aparência de realidade. em Amateur, ele brinca com o gênero de uma forma diferente e incrível, empregando aquele estilo meio frio e distante típico desse cinema americano independente dos anos 90 junto com uma trama absurda de espionagem e, assim, atinge emoções bem profundas. no meio de tiros inesperados, roupas de couro e furadeiras, ele retrata os…

    Amateur is quite a bad film. But I don't think Hal Hartley's strange mirror of reality should hinder his ability to have people listen to what he has to say. Before I compared him to someone with a speech impediment but I'm not sure if that was an offensive comparison or not...

    A few months ago, Little White Lies did a 1994 version of their magazine, and included Amateur in the movies they reviewed. In their review, they made the…

    Child porn and Matador Records*, economics and defamatory journalism, celibate nymphomaniacs and repentant (but for what?) amnesiacs: these are some of the things you'll find in Amateur. While, like the rest of Hartley's 90s, pre-digital work, the images are all about clarity and precise choreography**, that list should clue you in on the impenetrability of the story he tells with this picture. A man bleeds out on cobblestones, beautiful woman Sophia kicks him and believes him dead, but he wakes…

    Poucos diretores conseguem tratar a trama como um mero subtexto como Hartley faz e ainda tirar tanta coisa de elementos tão simples e diretos. Incrível como ele renova o espaço cênico a cada sequência e evoca uma força muito independente para cada momento do filme.

    Martin Donovan in Hal Hartley movies is my spirit animal.

    My first encounter with Hal Hartley, and what a place to start. A pleasure to watch, and the occasional Pavement or My Bloody Valentine track don't do any harm either.

    Man, Hal Hartley just gets me. He knows how to make exactly the sort of film I want to see...I go in knowing I'm gonna love it, whatever it is.

    Watched this for the first time 20 years ago and loved it just as much this time around - Hal Hartleys finest work and that's saying something!
