Collateral Beauty really is a nice, innocuous little film designed for those in the mood for an undemanding weepie...Yet, once again we have an example of an unpresuming, mid-range movie becoming a lightning rod for inexplicable online hatred.
I still kinda dig this weird, embarrassing movie. It's got good actors in it -- everyone is great, really -- it looks real nice, and I'm brave enough to admit that, yes, reader, I got a little teary in parts.
Collateral Beauty isn't exactly a good movie. As noted, it's overly manipulative, and it also has several glaring continuity problems. At the same time, this tragic tale truly does offer catharsis and hope.
Most movies today remind us dates in high school are hard to come by, superheroes can beat up aliens, or serial killers are scary dudes. A movie that wisely contemplates how to deal with profound sadness deserves our respect for that alone.
