An accurate depiction of the logging industry for the time and the area of NC USA. These two Cooper and Lawrence seem to just fit together in acting roles. They have the same chemistry as Tracey and Hepburn yet we never see them in a true comedy. This movie is dark, and depicts a cruel albeit life of the logging industry many accidents and challenges along with greed and jealousy. Happy ending in any film produced in the last 10 years seems to be a missing, this atones for the ratings this film received.
This show is about a man's relationship with an Octopus and her life of one year. The perils she endured and how instinctively she knew to hide from a predator. I found it unkind that her human friend could not have saved her from a shark attack from which she nearly died however within a short period of time her tentacle grew back.
Whenever I see animal life like this I have to wonder if this attack was set up. The underwater scenery was spectacular. The area around the horn of Africa very tumultuous waters but still incredibly beautiful. This show affirms what I always thought every living creature has a soul we just never get close enough to see it
I think the era was the 70's for this production of Crowley's original play. Parsons character clearly is panicked about his roommates arrival because he doesn't want his friend to know he is gay. On a deeper note Parsons has stated in an article that he had an awful time coming out to his mother, that being said I would think that experience helped him grasp the character and project the range of emotions in the play. The ending is cliche
David Lynch comes to mind when watching this movie, no rhythm, rhyme or reason absolutely had no continuity. Symbolism of the dead sheep outlining farm life, futuristic sequence of one character feeding an elderly parent and receiving the Nobel prize. The school custodian sitting in a freezing cold truck is he the character ending it ? Characters discussing top of mind issues at dinner, speaking their minds, unusual. To End it all cerebral dancing in the hall at the high school? Get out the Zoloft !
I have to wonder what impact this type of movie has on a young African American kid who doesn't finish high school and owns more guns than books? Glorify's the great American pass time of killing someone, beating up someone, notice the men whom died and were beat up were white. Is this some kind of subliminal message here? Washington is older and looked stiff, hard to kill the bad guys with arthritis. Give this movie a pass it has no redeeming qualities isn't entertaining and promotes violence as a means of employment.
