A Serious Man

A mixed experience

(Edit) 01/08/2015

Loved the Jewishness of this film, but found the overall experience a bit depressing - an aimless, weak, victimised man - likeable in some ways - in a hopeless situation. One or two dry moments do not a comedy make!

Effie Gray

Beautiful historical drama

(Edit) 02/08/2015

This was a delight, Dakota Fanning in her finest performance is increasingly restrained as the neglected, oppressed Effie. The cast is strong and the toxic influence of Ruskin's suffocating parents is intensely depicted. I would have loved to have seen more of Effie's later, happier life.. Visually a quietly beautiful film.

The Counsellor

A slick disappointment

(Edit) 02/02/2015

Ridley Scott, you can do so much better! A film full of stars and a sense of self-congratulation.. But not well-deserved in my view. The grim end to Mr Pitt seemed absurd. It was hard to feel anything about any of the characters including the protagonist who appeared utterly one-dimensional. The normally skilled actors hammed it up for all they were worth, and the 'meaningful' monologues were..not! I initially didn't know what was going on - and later I simply didn't care.

Brief Encounter

Brief Encounter

(Edit) 04/01/2010

What a delight! I really didn't expect to laugh so much - all the 'working class' characters had razor-sharp humour through their dialogue. The lead parts highlighted the innocence of the age, the passion was a simmering undercurrent.. Even so I found there was a realism which is often lacking in modern cinema - for example the actors' teeth were as nature intended, not white and straight! As a snapshot of the constraints of middle-class post-war life, I found it fascinating.
