January 10, 2013:Critics Consensus: Gangster Squad Is Style Over Substance
This week at the movies, we've got tough cops (Gangster Squad, starring Sean Penn and Ryan Gosling),...
No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
If you take the film as the bauble it is, you'll be entertained by its lighthearted wit, social observations and resolute sidestepping of profundity.
A beguiling set of variations on a theme, a gossamer-light étude composed for delight rather than dissection.
Isabelle Huppert has reached that magical point where she gives a thrill of delight simply by showing up, her decades of great performances seeming to hover around her like a halo.
A movie may be a representation of the world, but it is also something that happens in the world, which means that sustaining a cinematic illusion and breaking it are equally beside the point.
In Another Country sets its characters adrift inside its own narrative sphere, letting them live several lives in the course of an hour and a half, and letting us share in their freedom.
An intriguing little cross-cultural curio that plays like a woozy, jazz-improv riff on romantic futility and destiny.
Isabelle Huppert has an inviting, steady glow in Hong Sang-soo's loosey-goosey, humorously light celebration of the French star, cinema's possibilities, and his colorful, endlessly combative homeland.
Hong Sang-soo hits the beach once again in his latest project, another austerely amusing study of hopeless neurotics making a mockery of leisure.
Hong has fun zooming, panning, and toying with structure and narrative repetition, though the film doesn't have the powerful undercurrent of regret typical of his best work.
Hong's film rejoices in the capricious nature of romance and the samsaric ebb and flow of life, and it makes confusion woozily pleasurable.
Yet another loving tribute by Hong Sangsoo to French cinema, somewhere between inconsequential and flimsy but pleasant to watch all through.
