guess it's time for Brad pitt to take a stab at the "Forrest Gump" of his career. he is far outshined by the women - but how can you go wrong with Swinton and Blanchett. a bit on the formulaic side (the catch phrase weaved throughout, the re-occuring hummingbird, the narration. even 6 visits to a man's past who was struck by lightning - all to illiterate that life is beautiful and short and worthwhile). sometimes the characters are reminding us so much not to take life for granted that they forget to march forward with the story. but all in all, a sweet little film with unusual circumstances and some damn good acting
they don't call her "marvelous Maryl" for nothing. and i'm convinced that Amy Adams can just about do anything. her career is really taking off. mr. Hoffman? well at least his gravelly "half talk" is more full bodied in this one. without giving anything away, i can say that my favorite scenes are the "gossip pillow feather" one, and the talk between sister and the character played by Viola Davis. though a small role, she deservedly was nominated for a GG. this pic is a goodie-and one that i would see again. subtle and riveting
saw this sunday with pals. really, really well done. i heard there was a "sex" scene between Penn and Franco and was worried the movie would use that as a selling point. it didn't, thank God. it stayed on track with a poignant and qwirky glimpse at the brief political life of Harvey, and his many accomplishments in a short time. Brolin is mighty fine as Dan White, and there's a particularly charming yet haunting performance by Diego Luna as Milk's 2nd boyfriend in the film. bit of a tear jerker at the end, and lots of great actual footage in the beginning and throughout of TV broadcasts and interviews
I just couldn't get into this one, folks. Shia cried too much (as usual), and a big female voiced orb has a "big brother" like grip on all the happenings around us? I did like, however, Michelle Monaghan's performance as a young mom desperate to get her child back. The unfolding of events is just a little too slick to be believeable (yes - i know it's only a movie). A bit aof a saccharin filled ending as well. Americans:not every film has to end with a possible romance! Sometimes people start alone AND end up alone
Liv Tyler -weren't you in LOTR?? what are you doing in this film. suspenseful, and a bit contrived (not to mention it takes a long, LONG time to get to any real action), this is a good date movie. although you might end up making out before it's through. another notch in the belt of the growing group of torture-philes in the american cinema world. not really gory (good), with lots of "why are you doing this to us?"
