The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them Reviews

  • Sep 29, 2020

    A waste of time watching the separate films, watching just that is enough. "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby" is a very interesting realistic novel, but the narrative is slow and can make many viewers tired in the middle of the film

    The story is real. The soundtrack is haunting. Other than that, the fact that it was cut down from two separate perspectives with their own full length feature films into one takes away from it's unique way of storytelling

    Well acted and originally told from two perspectives in separate films, HIM and HER, this mash-up insisted by Harvey Weinstein could have lost the essence in translation as it at times strains to deconstruct a moribund marriage after the loss of a child with an emotional ambivalence.

    A total speech of love for life and humanity. The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them, is an experience without limits, that James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain thrill with their strong performances, which is narrated from a unique and different perspective.

    James McAvoy was so great in this ( true, I am a little biased) that frankly, I barely noticed Jessica Chastain's role. This movie was one of the most real and moving films I've ever seen.

    Too much repitition from the His and Her films and there wasn't any new storylines or subplots. Disappointing.

    Just for the performance and the chemistry, you can go through this therapy again. The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby Ned Benson, the writer and director, sings a love song of two stanzas in this trilogy. A love story told from the perspective of both the partners, the film is properly balanced. Going through the script Benson's most of the time is spent upon just doing that. Balancing it. And as much effortful it would be, it is equally easy on the screen. And that is his biggest achievement and probably compliment too. The film looks easy. It flows smoothly. The supporting characters makes sense, the conversations necessary and the circumstances falls into place naturally. And maybe that's why the individual chapters speaks more to you. The complex nature of the other side is thrown right at your face which you aren't expecting, especially in a film like such, of a genre like such. The film divided itself visually in two colours. These colors represent the nature of the characters that steers the film. For instance the blue shade that James McAvoy carries is the suppressed emotional background that never makes him decide anything. And if it does, it is not his favourite position to be at. He can't choose. Jessica Chastain is quite opposite on that note. Her sunny shaded colour signifies the active nature of hers on that relationship, where her good or bad deeds and self-appointed position of choosing things; deliberately or accidentally, lights the fire. Them This final chapter- not actually- doesn't serve a purpose beyond the fact that if you wish to know what actually happened. And as a result, you have to watch the first two chapters. But if you do, then 90 percent of the film is already in your pocket. Yet, with crisp clean editing, you can learn from the film, how a first draft of a script is edited out.

    No attention too detail. Actually the only thing that disappears in this movie is detail...

    "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby" es un proyecto dirigido y escrito por Ned Benson que constituye tres películas: Him, Her y Them. Cuenta la historia de una pareja conformada por Conor y Eleanor, quienes se enfrentan a su separación producto de una tragedia. La idea de su director es presentar una película desde el punto de vista de Conor (Him), desde el punto de vista de Eleanor (Her) y desde el punto de vista de los dos (Them). Más allá del arriesgado experimento, "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby" es una obra potente y muy humana que intenta diseccionar la vida de una pareja. James McAvoy (Conor) y Jessica Chastain (Eleanor) brillan interpretando a un hombre y a una mujer que no saben cómo superar lo que les ha sucedido. Y los actores secundarios, que incluyen a Ciarán Hinds (el padre de Conor), Bill Hader (el mejor amigo de Conor), William Hurt (el padre de Eleanor), Isabelle Hupert (la madre de CEleanor) y Viola Davis (la profesora de Eleanor), brillan con la misma intensidad que sus protagonistas. Esta es una historia de amor profunda y dolorosa que constituye un impresionante debut para su director.
