Moody, bottle-filled, and isolating. I thought it was alright. Uncomfortable being stuck in a cabin during the middle of winter can drive anyone bonkers. Riley Keough's performance is something to appreciate but I felt like they could've gone further with a few things. Still it's kinda scary with two kids having to stay with their dad's new girlfriend who may not be mentally sound since she was locked up in a psychiatric hospital. Much of the movie relies on mood, atmosphere, dark lighting, and playing around with the paranoia testing your sanity. This is by no means a game changer in horror but something that will give a different vision for certain enthusiasts.
Jonathan Pryce and Robert De Niro star in this flick directed by master Terry Gilliam
this is kind of along the lines of 'The Matrix' and 'Blade Runner'
in a dystopian future people follow certain rules and guidelines to make civilization orderly and up to speed thanks to giant leaps in technology
first dates, terrorist bombings, even endless amounts of shopping exist despite all the dangerous, explosive situations
Pryce plays Sam Lowry who feels a correction needs to be administered to this so-called adjusted society; he doesn't want a promotion at the Ministry of Information and his mother is so pushy about it
Lowry decides to abandon this "perfect" existence but it ends up backfiring as he's being hunted while also following the love of his life, a girl named Jill who he believes is in danger
De Niro is Harry Tuttle whom is wrongfully arrested by this bureaucratic government
this world is very extensive with it's science-fiction, the art and set designs are creative, the dream sequences are lovely representing the difficult life choices Sam has to make in order to move forward, and even though it doesn't pick up until halfway through the action scenes are actually quite fun
it's a bit long and Pryce and De Niro don't share a lot of scenes together plus Kim Griest isn't in a lot of it until the end but I do admire it's vision making it feel like a 1940's neo-noir tale
Pryce is really good here having everything in his mind expand even though his choices are limited, you can barely tell what's real and what's not
it's a very mind-bending surreal watch
Almost every couple out there searches for their "unicorn."
In the case of these two they are trying to find a common ground in their relationship
Being engaged for 4 years you'd think they would actually be ready
But it's probably that one spark they need to get things going
So the both of them have an idea to spice things up; have a threesome together
As the night progresses though new secrets and hidden feelings are revealed making them question where they are and if getting married is the way to go
A relationship is dangerous waters least of all marriage; it can get very rocky, you have to be okay with new things as well as stuff you never knew about your partner from before, and it's like sailing a treacherous ocean, if you don't work together both could end up sinking
The movie can apply to all couples looking to make things more fun
AnnaSophia Robb is adorable here and this is a role that fits her personality
The movie is above average for being based on a children's book about a stray dog taken in by a young girl
Jeff Daniels is good as a struggling father/preacher and his daughter makes an impact on the townsfolk along with the canine
Very heavy themes these people deal with but the kids can pick up a few things from it
Sure it's bland and forgettable but still harmless enough
Kurt Russell plays a journalist Malcolm Anderson and Marien Hemingway plays
a school teacher, both of them live in Miami, Florida
A top story murder grabs the attention of the Numbers Murderer who feeds
Malcolm information on other victims
It makes Malcolm famous but lands him in hot water making him a target as
well as his girlfriend
Malcolm does get some interesting insight into this psychopaths mind about
how he chooses his victims but can his reporting save lives and bring this
madman to justice? is the job overtaking his relationship as well as his duties as a respectable journalist?
This is actually a clever thriller with Kurt Russell racing against the
clock to save his job but also his beloved, the notoriety in the press is one thing but it can put a target on your back if it goes the wrong way
what's more important; the story or the fame or the somewhat twisted connection making the killer well-known?, it's the ethical responsibility of a journalist to write about the victims or else the words and the stories themselves seem negligent, even a big news story can shift our attention elsewhere making everything around us seem formative
not bad if somewhat less-than-memorable
