Standard Paul Rudd comedy with a fantastic Steve Carrell performance. The movie shows glimpses of brilliance, but I don't believe its a strong enough story to garner laughs all the way through. The whole dinner sequence is just quite awkward and probably the least funniest part of the film. Easy watch, but there are much better comedies out there.
Powerful film about maternal grief and motherhood. The first 30 minutes are extremely powerful, including a harrowing performance from Vanessa Kirby. You have to commend Mundruczó direction of the opening scene and I also loved Benjamin Loeb's camera work. The powerful start slightly hinders the rest of the film, as I think it falls slightly flat in the second half. Nevertheless, the film is a vehicle for Kirby to showcase her phenomenal talent.
This is a superb rom-com which I think may have passed a few people by, as I don't think its had the same longevity as Annie Hall, When Harry Met Sally, Noting Hill etc. Richard Dreyfuss is electric in this and I found myself constantly laughing whenever he was on screen. Perhaps some of his performance is slightly over the top, but he creates a memorable character, which sometimes these types of films are unable to do.
Such a brilliant idea for a film, which Hitchcock delivers exquisitely and is helped by a great performance from Stewart. Keeping the camera inside Stewart's apartment throughout the whole film is genius and really adds to the tension. For something that is 65 years old, its held up pretty well. I do believe that Vertigo has slightly more suspense to it, but this is still a must watch and clearly shows why Hitchcock was so revered.
Timeless film with a fantastic screenplay that has gained more and more relevance as the years go by. Loved Peter Finch's well deserved Oscar winning performance, whilst Sidney Lumet's fantastic direction helps paint a rather accurate picture of the immorally corrupt, commercial media corporations. I'm sure Network will get remade in the next 15 years.
