The Canyons review

Posted : 2 years, 7 months ago on 6 July 2015 12:01 (A review of The Canyons)

Badly acted, badly written, badly shot and badly edited. I watched it because I thought it might have some aesthetic atmospheric quality but it does not. I like Lindsay Lohan but she is sleepy eyed and raspy voiced through out. The cast did not have any chemistry. There is literally no reason to watch this unless you actually get some enjoyment out of films which are horribly put together.

Palme review

Posted : 3 years, 9 months ago on 22 May 2014 08:55 (A review of Palme)

I am not one for historical-political documentaries but this was very, very well done. Going into it I was like do I really care about some rich while male politician and all the political bullshit and ugh the boredom that will surely begin. But I was wrong. The film doesn't just cover Palme's life (a man who in contrast to US politicians seemed to legitimately stand for what he believed) but the history of his time period: The assassinations of Martin Luther King and John F. Kennedy, Vietnam, Chile, social change, the works. It was fascinating to watch the world literally changing before your eyes and very informative.
The movie starts with Palme in an interview saying he believes his goal and the purpose of politics is to make life on earth decent for people. Having a movie start by echoing your own closely held beliefs is a pretty good sign.
Palme was anti-racism, pro-immigrant, absolutely anti-violence and he fought for peace. He was a charismatic socialist known for getting himself involved in one too many issues.
It's a bit ironic that they had Desmond Tutu in the documentary- a man who's famously said that to be neutral in times of oppression is to side with the oppressors.
The movie comments that Palme was very much hated by a great many but doesn't delve too deeply into the justification for such hate, simply passing it off as a fad to hate the prime minister. The part where the sons are talking about how their classmates told them they hoped their father would die was quite horrible. But the most shocking was definitely the images from the US bombing Vietnam.
I wondered over the ending for a little but I understand it now as him saying that no matter how prejudice is couched in intellectual theory or ideology, prejudice is prejudice is prejudice.
It was a very good movie.

Coffee Town review

Posted : 4 years, 7 months ago on 11 July 2013 11:09 (A review of Coffee Town)

The comedy was very good but the other parts of it- when it tried to be serious- were kind of mundane. I would recommend watching it for some of the clever jokes, not the storyline or the characters.

Molly
-Hole: how she made friends with them to get NY game totally skipped over. -Love Jessica Chastain and the character's personality keeps the movie very watchable. -Idris Elba's impassioned defense of her just seems to come too much out of left field. It's obvious he comes to admire and care about her but the sweetness of that almost doesn't fit the tone of the movie. Or else, seems to attempt to hammer you over the head with 'this character is a good person'... It just seemed like the movie suddenly became weak plot-wise when it revolved around two characters' arguing why one didn't deserve prison. +Don't really see her choice as totally honorable. Protecting the world/their families from the horribleness of these men. There's honorability in truth. But I understand from her psychology that she had some family issues that made that seem unappealing to her.

The Exception
Put off watching this for a while bc it seemed kind of offensive. I know Hollywood feeds off of forbidden love but it's going to the extremes when it takes on an actual genocide in our history. I stumbled onto the trailer again and my Lily James stan heart wanted to give it a shot. The acting is absolutely fantastic. (Okay, towards the later part of the movie Lily James' face is filled with too much readable emotion to be believable as something that no one notices.) Also as a love story, there is no question the two leads have some damn sexual chemistry. (But kind of rapey at beginning??? What was??? Oh boy.) I had hopes I'd misunderstood the original 'soldier who just works for an evil government but who has a good heart' trope but nope exactly that and not enough back story and characterization to flesh out why such a contradiction is occurring. The line about him being 'the exception' turned what was so far a well-acted period drama piece into something over-Hollywoodized and plastic feeling. It asks for too much of a suspension of belief, especially with a lack of back story, that he is just suddenly realizing the violence of his government (and his participation in it). It ignores complex questions of why human beings participated in such violence/ seems to imply ignorance. +Why she abandons killing him doesn't really make sense. +Refuses to abandon his duty even though he has a Jewish girlfriend??? Agrees to marry him even though he is staying in anti-Jewish army which killed her family? -Sudden, unresolvedish ending. What to say...?? Not well-written enough to be great but the acting makes it worth seeing.

Loving Vincent
I wish a little it had focused more on his life than his death but there is no question the film is a literal work of art and beautifully made. I teared up at the end. It has a beautiful message. But the story itself was kind of so-so for me. I was a bit scared on behalf of the artists that the story wouldn't be up to par with the art. They ended up going a simplistic route, focusing on the question of his death and the characters in his life, which was a pretty non-offensive (but yeah, simple) path. The very American accents threw me off a little here and there; they didn't seem to fit. I'm kind of shocked and outraged on behalf of the artists that their names weren't given more credit. The actors got more recognition than the people who hand painted the entire movie (I can't even imagine the amount of work and talent that took)! One of the themes of the movie is LITERALLY TIED TO RESPECTING ART and how Van Gogh never got enough credit in his life for the amazingness of his art. Seriously.
