The Peanut Butter Falcon Reviews

  • 9h ago

    One of the best goofy/feel good movies I've seen in awhile. Its quirky, its original and it has tons of character. My only knock on the movie is the ending. I was hoping for a little more, but still really enjoyed it. Was definitely one of the best films of 2019 and will warm the heart!

    "Peanut Butter Falcon" é, em virtude do baixo orçamento, um filme simples. No entanto, essa simplicidade não estraga a qualidade do longa-metragem, muito pelo contrário: ela a erige e, por conseguinte, transforma a obra cinematográfica em algo prazeroso de se assistir. O personagem-título é Zak, um jovem com Síndrome de Down que deseja ser um lutador de luta-livre. Ele passa a maior parte de seus dias reassistindo fitas VHS de seu ídolo, o lutador profissional Salt Water Redneck e elaborando planos para escapar da clínica na qual foi colocado pelo Estado. Quando consegue sair, cruza com o azarado malfeitor Tyler, e os dois seguem para a escola de Salt Water, onde Zack poderá ir em busca de seu sonho. Com atuações aceitáveis (alguns atores estão muito bem, outros nem tanto), uma boa direção e um roteiro que apresenta boas premissas, o filme oferece uma boa dose de ação, misturada com outra de comicidade, fato que não deixa seu ritmo cair e ficar sem graça enquanto o arco de seus personagens principais é desenvolvido. Sem dúvidas, a maior façanha dos diretores e roteiristas é como constroem amizade de Zak e Tyler de forma tão natural, com suas similaridades – que aparecem gradualmente ao longo da viagem: os dois são fugitivos e sentem falta de uma estrutura familiar que lhes apoie - e discrepâncias: enquanto Tyler é mais calmo e quieto, Zak, por sua vez, é, de certo modo, imperativo e petulantemente inquieto. O conjunto de similaridades e discrepâncias entre os personagens lhes transformam em um grande instrumento cômico. Em sua ambientação, existe uma liberdade na paisagem verde que reflete a liberdade buscada pelos protagonistas. Para eles, a vida na cidade, apesar de segura, parece restritiva – e por isso que fogem dela. Esse conflito é encarnado em Eleanor (Dakota Johnson), uma das funcionárias da clínica. Ela recebe como tarefa trazer Zak de volta. Quando encontra a dupla, ela se põe diante de uma difícil questão: as pessoas deveriam prezar pela sobrevivência ou, realmente, viver? Além da paisagem verde, pode-se acompanhar os personagens seguindo o fluxo da água, que, neste caso, simboliza a busca por um recomeço e o anseio pela realização de um sonho "utópico". Com uma boa trilha sonora e um elenco, em geral, interessante, "The Peanut Butter Falcon" tira o máximo de sua premissa e funciona como um lembrete de esperança em meio à adversidade. Palavra definitória: Bom.

    An unlikely duo. So this is about a kid with Down syndrome (Zack Gottsagen). He has nobody to take care of him and nowhere to go, so he got stuck in a retirement home. He has dreams of being a wrestling star, so he breaks out of his living arrangement and becomes a stowaway on a boat captained by a troubled young man (Shia LaBeouf). He's in the process of skipping town after burning some bridges, so why not drop the kid off at wrestling school along the way? Now I missed this one in theaters, but it still stayed on my radar, as it was beloved by both audiences and critics alike. I like that Shia is working on projects like this and Honey Boy, and I really think that he has made a turn in his career. Also, much like Honey Boy, I feel that I like this better in concept than the actual overall execution. Now, this is by no means a bad movie, and I understand how this has gathered the following it is currently bolstering. I really love the fact that they got somebody with Down syndrome and made him the star of a movie; people with this condition aren't afforded the same opportunities as everybody else, so good on the makers of this for putting together a movie with a part like this. Of course, this does mean that it sometimes gets a bit mumbly and hard to understand at times, but it doesn't detract all that much. I was really with this movie for about the first half, and it has everything to do with the chemistry between Gottsagen and LaBeouf. It is genuinely funny to watch LaBeouf become annoyed with his mannerisms as they are trying to put some miles behind them, and it is sweet to see him grow to care for the kid and treat him like a normal person. So what's not to like? The longer this story goes on, the more predictable it becomes. The charm never goes away, but most of the surprises do, so I did reach a point where I did check out, which is never a good sign when your movie is only about 90 minutes long. The ending also becomes pure fantasy which doesn't tonally fit with the rest of the film which stays reasonably grounded, and I feel like it is unintentionally hilarious. If this does sound like your thing, then, by all means, check it out, I hope you like it. For me, this just ended up being somewhere in the middle of the road.

    Shia LaBeouf once again proves what a formidable actor he is with this incredibly well written, directed, shot, and acted movie. Probably the best independent film of the year. 9/10

    Trying hard to be a feel good movie but a better script would have helped. Labeouf was a standout.

    A Great Feel good movie. The friendship of Tyler and Zack really make you want to join them in their adventure.

    I was very skeptical prior to watching this light hearted, warm film about finding your own way and the power of friendship/belief. Well worth your time investment.
