Winter Meeting (1948)
Hulkean war hero has a hard time relinquishing his power to serve God; Bette's in to help. There are reflective moments on mental health when the characters spill and expound. Bette gives the character her established perfection and James Davis is the right giant to pound the rigidity out of her but it defined without comprehensive deduction. 09-Dec-2019
Starred Up (2013)
Fixing anger management whilst in prison. Jack O'Connell wholly conveys a ferocious and unchained delinquent with soft edging. Ben Mendelsohn is definitely the dad you don't want raising you in prison. Rupert Friend is the therapist that wants to reform them expressing very well through character evolvement that they can also reform him. Well acted, "candy-colored," well made. A take on the anger that builds in the underprivileged man. 15-Nov-2019
Last Time I Saw Paris, The (1954)
War, Victory, Love and Life. Taylor struts gorgeously, as does Johnson's Herculean mane. Reed drops sweet for acid, Eva asserts manhunter and Moore is fine cuisine. The dialogue snaps, sexual freedom is commonplace and money kills God's Plan. The story lingers then quickens but star lush endures. 09-Nov-2019
Black KKKlansman (2018)
In order to be entertained by a Spike Lee movie, you must see it to the end.
The beginning stacks so much hate that it begins to feel uncomfortable especially when our current sensibilities are asserted. I felt like the movie was about switching roles which is not equality but subjugation.
John David Washington kept his Stallworth steady when he needed to grow into him. Mr. Stallworth would have been one of a kind and he would appear grateful and not establish his big dick presence (it's an attitude) so early.
Adam Driver seems alive again. He gave his quiet hero a timber.
The details I will remember are the dumbfuck ones. Somebody needed to check out Driver's dick, a cop shouldn't ever use his real name in an investigation and the black KKKlansman was basically a phone operative.
Every ending was a celebration to cheer, laugh and finally understand Lee's idea.
Green Book (2018)
I was predetermined to quit and I almost did at the beginning of Philadelphia but the film had an insistence on allocating an interracial message of unity. Ali rendered a painfully stoic sexual conundrum with too much high and no might. His fingers were the only part of his body trying to throb his character to life. He needed to fill the holes inherited by a lack of backstory. Mortensen breaks through the wrappings to inhabit but the tonal enthusiasm and scrunched up faces spawn 2D animation. It was funny, I drifted with the conversations, history was respected but I never once felt any of it happened. A slow seduction would have blown everything out of the park.
PS: If it makes everyone feel equal to be unpretty then we should stop saying "the magic of Hollywood." 29-Sep-2019
There are tidbits I didn't know. Child genius, warped sensibilities and family hypocrisy. The catalog is immense as is the concept of each song. Many odes to so many things only we can remember. The razzle dazzle is there, the actor siphons the legend's anger and the music remains inspired. A life worth celebrating. 05-Jul-2019
