Another enjoyable Norwegian film, a black comedy of sorts, that once again deals with loners, eccentrics, having problems adjusting to daily life chores. It works nicely. This film could very well be the snow-filled equivalent of David Lynch's notable "Straight story", as it is a classic road-movie that takes place in the cold northern part of Norway. I especially enjoyed a delicate balance between the hardened reality presented and the humour bordering on the absurd. It is almost in a Jarmusch spirit.
Michael Winterbottom continues to amaze me by producing films which differ considerably in terms of theme and the way they are presented. This particular flick is no exception. Although, Colin Firth gives a bit of a plain performance, the supporting cast is great. Especially the two girls playing his daughters and Catherine Keener who fits pretty well. Although it is a story about a family (father and two daughters) coming to terms with a sudden death of their wife/mother, I just loved the way it was shot (a bit like a documentary) and the fact while watching it I continuously had a feeling that something crucial will happen at any given moment. Overall, the film had a fresh feeling about it and didn't seem to fall into typical traps one might expect.
Excellent and well-crafted miniseries. Although perhaps it does not have the thrill level that "Mesrine" did, it is engaging nevertheless. Edgar Ramirez is pitch-perfect here and the supporting cast has the feel of the recent "Der Baader Meinhof" film. Definitely worth seeing.
A quite an impressive film with a great screenplay and an eye-catching leading role by Jesse Eisenberg. Although the film seems to be on the surface about the behind-the-scenes creation of Facebook, it really is a clever portrayal of what lack of social or even anti-social behavior can lead to in an internet age. A film worth revisiting from time to time, as it leaves you with something to ponder.
A very well acted film that has a definite indie feel to it. I especially liked the Michelle Williams role here. She shows lot in this difficult character struggling with her love interest. The movie is a deep psychological study of a relationship's demise where we get to observe all the nuisances that lead to the inevitable end .
