★★★★★ Having seen various reviews (mostly lukewarm to negative) we were reluctant to see this film. The "trashing" of Ryan Reynolds was especially convincing. Fortunately, we don't believe everything we read! We thought that this was a superb treatment of the subject. Reynolds and Mirran were convincing as was Daniel Brühl as their Austrian advocate. It was fun to see Elizabeth McGovern in her cameo role as judge. The Viennese scenes were superb. We recognized many of the sites from our numerous trips there. Excellent film. It will be fun to see the "Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer" by Klimt next time we're in NYC. Don't believe the critics on this one!!
Your review saying "There's nothing timely about this" is pretty inaccurate. Have you noticed the upswing in the Vampire movies and TV shows lately. The hilarious documentary is a great take against the demand of movies like... Dracula reborn and about 10 others that have come up just in the last year :-)
This movie is degrading to women and glamorizes abuse-things like stalking or other abusive practices are not okay, and this movie makes it look like it is. Considering the amount of domestic violence rape etc. and how hard it is to do anything but blame the victim, and the way our rape culture says "She wanted it"-this movie is a nasty piece of work. However it may be framed, the message is the same. If this were a real life story, we would see this as a young women being drawn in by a predatory guy.
I loved watching the flashback scenes of Obama campaigning on the exact principles that Snowden espouses, and then acting 180 degrees oppositely when the NSA is exposed as liars and traitors to the U. S. Constitution.
I haven't laughed so hard since Guardians Of the Galaxy.
I AGREE. The other reviewers have no Sense of Humor.
Critics love this movie; Rex Reed was seeing it through the lens of the average moviegoer for whom the movie has zero entertainment value. Whom do critics write for, themselves or the moviegoer?
The reviewer seems not to be familiar with people who marry and only then discover the true nature of their spouse.
what an idiot u are! This was a Hilarious picture!
MH: Birdman actually praised the virtues of social media. Sam got her Dad on board, in the end.
Well, it astounds me how you missed the motivation and the character DID say it: she was walking "to make herself clean." Clean to forgive herself of her past and clean to finally grieve for her mother. By taking a solitary walk or hike, don't we all do that? That's what I gain with time alone in the woods - convening with nature and a refresh to my soul.
Also, as a woman, I found the events Cheryl experienced on the trail completely relatable (from encountering potentially dangerous men to the physical burdening of a pack). I also giggled at her novice backpacking errors, which fortunately from the wisdom of fellow Green Mountain Club members, I have managed to mostly avoid.
Yes, you were immature by humming the Dewey Cox theme in your head (a shoddy movie in which she didn't even star nor did the low caliber parodying come close to resembling her character in Walk the Line.) Taking the movie from a joking perspective skewed your ability to see the beauty behind this wonderful movie.
Your review is the joke.
Thank you for the honest review. I almost walked out, but kept hoping the movie would go deeper. It never did and I too found it silly and lacking any sort of emotion.
Interesting that a film that has received almost universal acclaim gets short shrift here. Don't let this reviewer's bias against this film keep you from having a wonderful experience at the movies. There are too few quality films being made these days for you to miss this one.
I don't think this movie "is a valentine to an abusive relationship." I interpreted the movie with Andrew as the protagonist, and Fletcher as the antagonist. Andrew's goal for the entire movie was to earn Fletcher's approval. He did indeed do that at the end of the movie, so, for all intents and purposes, the villain won. Andrew did become a better drummer, but did he become a better person? I would say no, because he became arrogant and selfish (he left his girlfriend to further his drumming). The relationship was abusive, and Fletcher was manipulative and vindictive. Nevertheless, Andrew worked to win his approval. I believe the film leaves it up to interpretation whether his experience with Fletcher made him a better person. I say no.
Loved it. Have seen it twice now and highly recommend it.
The reviewer writes: "What they don't traditionally do is undergo the ludicrous levels of physical and psychological mistreatment depicted here." Actually, the director said in an interview that his film was mostly autobiographical. In fact, this kind of abusive relationship is rampant in competitive sports and music programs all across the country. The director also said that his jazz ensemble was voted best high school band in the country by Downbeat, so the film asks the question: is it worth it? It's a good, timely question. The reviewer dismisses the question as preposterous and irrelevant. In America today it is neither.
Also it's a little weird to have a reviewer take issue with an utterance made by a psychopath (Fletcher) because of its dubious historical accuracy. I didn't know that in film even psychopaths are to be held to the highest scholarly standards...
The film in question is not sincere about creating communication because it ignores the two principal elements of the diverse white American peoples...our richly-textured diversity and our actual nationality.
It is normal in this era of reductionism to try to portray all the diverse white Americans as clones of each other. Even President Obama did it in 1988 two days after his famous race speech when he referred to his own grandmother as "a typical white prson." And we know that media, entertainment, and academia form a wall against recognizing our diversity and nationality ("American"). Yes, we are diverse and yes, we are Americans. Without recognizing that, we cannot move forward and this movie (unless it serves as a kind of passive-aggressive micro-aggression) will not enhance communication.
In case readers don't believe that the diverse white Americans are diverse, here is an example. We divide along IQ lines with 1/2 of us having IQs above 100 and 1/2 of us having IQs below 100. That's a beginning place for recognizing white diversity.
ya, i was thinking the same things like why the customers never complained about not getting Loans.
