The Guitar Reviews
I just thought that the ending could have been better...it was good don't get me wrong but it had moments of greatness...it's a film that make you think of what you would do if you only had a couple of months to live...
Directed by: Amy Redford
Release Date: November 7 2008
SPOILER ALERT (but not detrimentle)
Commencing at an ordinary morbid and woefull beginings it fast tracks to a 'any human finds sexually distracting/acceptAnce' ...relaxed real-life scenerio with intreage, flashing back at speratic intervals to a childhood facination with a shopfront guitar sale display, in silent awe.
It readily activates into a bit of character building though is where it lacked the most, leaving the viewer with a grossly open mind apon the nature of a dream like association to 'what if it was me' in this position. A couple of support cast join in to the largely solo performance and all up enlists a very small contingent of actors, instead relying on Saffron Burrows almost entirly.
It is well acted by the lead and a few relitive unknowners and captivats the viewer to (well I speak for myself a bit bias when I say)... un-nerving compassion & moves ones soul to no-end, for my attributes as both a solo muscian and artist, these days with little accompanyment and an allways hard to find inspiration. Complete life changes or upheavals are good for us all, too, I think though a nomadic or vagrent lifestyle should be portrayed/promoted alongside the dangers like a life of sex drugs and rock and roll. Its has concepts towards un-nuturing or homemaker/motherlyness in a mainstream sense, confronting this 'living quarters set up' near the start of the film prompting an ideal version of those confinds/worldly possesions that are so highly regarded and slow to accumulate as security surrounds of 'ideal' everyday living requirments. One thing that was missing was the love from people around her for a long term sense. Some cultures find mortal life not the terminus of love and relationships living for the longterm with love beyond the dying process.
The other obvious issue was the fact that some people believe a modern medicine affliction accompanies the diagnosis and can be elliminated by a complete sever from both the lifstyle and the connectivity of life with which it was contracted/grown aswell as the medical profession that cherns it out by the, academic/domestic for you, tonnage.
It was diplomatic in confronting these issuses and from a feminine direction point and first hand instances to refer from was brought to us without anti.... civilized world perspectives, leaving thus up to the critical slaying, like so, only 3 out of 5 stars :(
Is a best seller for the likes of myself explaining more the muscian as an artist rather than as a professional.
Similar to 'school of rock' , 'almost famous' o 'Once' because most find the auto/biographics of a success/popular story are of whom have made it commercially.
