I'm a graduate of the University of Western Ontario (BA English/French, 2006) and the University of Toronto (MA Comparative Literature, 2007), but after spending so much time reading in school, I have missed a great deal of movies. (This is why I have posted the list of shame, check it out and marvel at what I haven't seen.)
Some nitpicky stuff:
1. I don't record being "not interested" in a movie because it's too much work and it counts as a negative review making me "less compatible" with you as a friend - I don't think it's a bad movie... I'm just not interested. :)
2. Please, don't "recommend" a movie to me without actually writing anything (especially one I've already reviewed).
3. I don't do widgets, and rarely quizzes. I'm not here to IM, to meet a mail-order bride or to support any other ways people misuse this site. I'm here to talk about movies; if you like to do that too, then let's be friends!
4. Still reading? Ok, fine, be promoted to. I'm a published short story writer. My site is www.danielperryfiction.com. I'm also on Facebook and Twitter, (details on my site). Like/Follow me!
Somewhere between a mindless music video and Terence Malick... grotesque, compelling cinema (European in style, kind of like Drive was) that uses little dialogue and (I'm not the first reviewer to say) "hallucinatory" effects to make its point about how desensitized to sex and violence a whole generation is... about how we play the roles before we even know what they are. Brave and interesting work - much better than the "Disney Kids Go To College" movie I half-expected.
I'm probably over-rating this because it's among the better Canadian movies I've seen... I wouldn't think it stacks up with other movies I've given four stars to, but I'm glad I gave it a chance. Compelling love story and a wonderful performance by Helena Bonham Carter.
