The Canyons review

Posted : 4 years, 3 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 : 5 years, 5 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 : 6 years, 3 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.

Someone Great
This movie encapsulates the feeling of heart break. Fuck. Made my chest ache. So well acted. And that breakup speech near the end made me cry like a baby. Could've used a little better editing. And some part of me wants more info on why their relationship ended and wants to fight it but there you go.

Vox Lux
Well shot. Slow and moody. Definitely not happy. -Don't know why they had the younger version of her be so emotionally dead and yet singing and making a career out of expressing herself after a tragedy. Feels completely off and inhuman. Maybe they were trying to portray naivety but just comes off making the film seem more strange. But maybe that sort of unemotional shallowness is part of what the movie portrays. Adult version seems to speak in shallow lyrics. Lack of connection between pop lyrics and real life. So terrible pop is the devils music? Way too long of a terrible performance at end. Almost makes me hate music. But the length of terribleness does leave an impact and make you view musical performances in a new way. And then the movie ends without tying up anything. Ok. I always feel like a movie is leading to something when it decides to be something else. Character study on loss of innocence/ emotional depth. After thinking about it a while it's certainly a moody, well shot film that I won't forget too soon and its comments on the current culture via pop music have point. It's definitely purposely strange, leaving many gaps in the story for you to wonder at, and almost surrealistic.

The Godfather
Male centric, all important characters men. Women mostly decoration, around men. Represent family. When shown, shown in domestic role or as love interests. Not included in family business somehow. Women often shown outside of knowledge of events, sometimes comedically. Ignorant of what matters. In cases of female victimhood- shown in beginning and explicitly in sister scene. Women do not have agency to avenge. Men avenge for them and the pain of women's abuse is made their pain. Kind of progressive but also not. Shows pain of domestic abuse but main actor accused of it and yet they gave him employment. Irony. Domestic violence scene. When she finds out he's cheating, holds knife so ineffectually. Mother character not shown, just referenced. Only see her back up until mid of the movie. Completely patriarchal. Movie based on plot of feuding families but no great moral seems to come of it? +Racism Piece of patriarchal media history.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again
This is definitely not a good movie. It's ridiculous; really ridiculous. And yet sometimes in that joyously stupid way like when you're dancing alone in your room. Also horribly, horribly, dear god corny. But the truth is if you're willing to lean into the joyous stupidity, it's pretty enjoyable. In fact there's really nothing wrong with feel-good joyous stupidity. The thing that most bothered me was the acting and how it often felt like the actors were feeling more of the stupid than the leave-it-all-behind-and-dance kind of joy of it. But oh my god, they definitely could have gotten better writers. This movie also has some of the worst lip syncing I have ever seen. But I left wanting to get drunk and dance to ABBA. And I kind of want to watch it again...
