The Skeleton Twins

The Skeleton Twins

15 hours ago via Flixster

Maggie: I was thinking you could come stay with me...

The Skeleton Twins is the kind of film that features a few actors giving the kind of performances that make it look easy. Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig are best known for their work on Saturday Night Live, but clearly have aspirations to delve into more dramatic work, better showing off their range as performers. It is one thing to find the humor in certain scenes, but it is another to make that humor play in scenes that come in between some heavy dramatic material. This is a film that features some really dark material, but is able to develop a story that can follow a fairly formulaic level of plotting and still succeed, based on the confidence of the actors involved and the filmmakers working behind the scenes. As a result, The Skeleton Twins works as a sad comedy for the art house crowd and manages to rise above the easy complaints about these sort of family-focused stories.

The Drop

The Drop

5 days ago via Flixster

Bob: I just tend the bar.

The Drop is a strange sort of film, as it is ostensibly a crime drama rooted in its characters, but not quite focused enough to claim to be about one thing in particular. Sure, Tom Hardy is the lead in this film and we are basically following his mysterious character, who seems like a simple enough guy that could blow at any minute; but the film, while fairly straightforward, puts a number of things in front of its characters in a way that makes it hard to describe simply. As it stands, The Drop is a well-acted feature about criminals, gangsters, abuse, sorted pasts, moving on in one's life, just trying to get by, and a cute little dog.

The Congress

The Congress

13 days ago via Flixster

Jeff: Once we've scanned you, there's no going back.

I saw writer/director's Ari Folman's 2008 film Waltz with Bashir and was very intrigued by where he would go next. That film revolved around a character searching for his lost memories as an Israeli soldier and was made using unique animation techniques. Folman's new film, The Congress, is similarly about finding one's self in a sense, but it comes at this topic from a different angle. Based on a science fiction novel by Stanislaw Lem, The Congress follows a character through an allegorical world that depicts the extreme merging of the entertainment industry and technology in ways so complex that people literally become animated characters. This is a film that has too many ideas to fully make work, but thanks to a strong lead performance by Robin Wright, let alone the nature of the film, there is a lot to appreciate or dissect about what is seen in The Congress; aspects that I am still thinking about.

Life Of Crime

Life Of Crime

18 days ago via Flixster

Marshall: Hey, you keep your wife out here and someone's liable to steal her.
Frank: You promise?

Sometimes I find myself asking, "Why wasn't this better?" Life of Crime has everything going for it. The film is a prequel of sorts to Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown, as both films feature three key characters. More specifically, crime novelist Elmore Leonard wrote both Rum Punch and The Switch, the novels both films are based on. Regardless, the film has interesting source material and circumstances going for it, as well as a great cast, most of Leonard's dialogue still intact, and a nice period-film aesthetic to top it all off. Still, Life of Crime never manages to be anything more than average. It is unfortunate, but I have some thoughts as to why this may have been the case.
