Conversations With Other Women Reviews
This is a cleverly written movie about 2 childhood sweethearts that reunite at the wedding. The whole movie is shot with 2 cameras so your watching it from 2 different angles. The film really does seem like its shot without any takes and that it's one conversation between 2 people. There are only 2 characters through the majority of the movie, but as they are 2 top class actors, they do make the movie interesting and entertaining. I know that the movie is old, but I thought that I would give it a go as there isn't that many movies out this month. I'm glad that I chose this film because it's a very original and a different way of shooting a film. Surprisingly Enjoyable!
Aaron Eckhart is another one of those actors that doesn't get the recognition that he is due. He was great in The Dark Knight and he was missed in The Dark Knight Rises. He was a great choice for this movie and the chemistry between him and Helen Bonham Carter was great. I must admit, I couldn't see where the hell the movie was going from the beginning, but once it starts going its funny and emotional in parts.

I recommend this movie to people who are into there movies about 2 childhood sweethearts that reunite at a wedding. 6/10
We know these ex-lovers are gonna fuck tonight, but the cat-and-mouse foreplay is still subtly suspenseful, with underhanded barbs and guarded tellings of their separate pasts. The script IS basic with no notable or quotable aphorisms, but I like that. The characters aren't trying to impress each other. HBC and Eckhart are so easy together that it's clear to see how the act of having sex doesn't really matter and how cheating on their SOs essentially isn't meant to be a hurtful or sinful thing, but a matter of course for the soul-connected.
I didn't love or hate the split-screen technique. At first I found it difficult to watch because I couldn't tell where the angles and POVs were, but I got over it and enjoyed the few moments where the screens showed the future and the characters' different reactions. The end when the screens match up confuses me though. Do they end up together? Should they?
