August: Osage County

26 Feb

And the vortex where all the dysfunction in the wold collides is right here ladies and gentleman.

I think I turned out just fine... just fine!!

I think I turned out just fine… just fine!!

August : Osage County is, without a doubt, every psychologist dream AND nightmare came true.

I am a sucker for a family drama where not a single person functions, everyone is so full of regrets and blame and in a way, they blend so well that it all plays out just fine, much like a perfect symphony, played for deaf people.

Here drama is real, regrets are not really important, what matters is blame and responsibility, who do you want to be next to when you grow old… how are you harvesting the seeds of a solid family tie.

This might sound heavy and the film heavy too, but it is not, Osage is the single most dynamic film of the year, it is even funny in moments, with a performance by Meryl Streep of the highest caliber and a very well balanced supporting cast.

Book and play are established as classics, the film makes it the triangle of perfect entertainment… I love it…

And you will love it too, if you are comfortable with realizing that your mother is actually not an evil witch trying to ruin your life… she is a frigging angel! You are very close to your siblings and your relationships are as normal as they get.

Mirror Mirror

21 Nov

Most of you have done this before, sitting down in front of a computer, writing a blog about a movie that shouldnt have happened.

Mirror mirror on the wall where is the next exit?

Some people have liked it, some did not, some were scared for life in their brains, in their souls.

I made it trough! and it was not easy… why? partly because my fellow companions were loving it (children) and because I was not sure I wanted to stop looking at Lilly Collins’s eyebrows! I was staring at those two as if my life depended on it.

I don´t know what to say, I … well… I don’t know what happened, I have some vague memories of Julia Roberts overacting, and some tall dude from Social Network, and an asian dwarf… look bear with me, there was nothing memorable about Mirror Mirror, they have killed a fairytale in cold blood.

Well except for  how bad it was, that is memorable….

Look, the visuals were nice Nathan Lane was his usual perfect above all the bad stuff around him and in some way the cinematography or special effects however you call it, they were OK.

Now lets move on and forget this ever happened.

You don´t believe me? I double dare you!
