    I thought it was goddamn funny. Nothing terribly memorable, but a nice dark comedy.

    His A Field in England sounds fantastic, though.

    And re: Mud, aside from his view of McConaughey being McConaughey, I don't agree with this review here, but the writer of the article does point out some pretty funny plot holes.

It's one of the most well-crafted bad movies I've seen in a long time.

    On a similar note, I saw the beginning of Beasts of the Southern Wild on HBO yesterday and immediately wanted to fight you again.
    Agree wholeheartedly on Place Beyond the Pines. The first act was awesome and compelling, the second was alright and interesting, the third was awful and afterschool-special quality. Too bad, because a whole movie of Ryan and Eva might have been a damn good movie, they both really sold the characters well.

    Spring Breakers didn't impress me as much as I'd hoped. The cinematography was great but most of the characters were lacking depth. I enjoyed James Franco's character but I wanted more from the female players.

    Watched Things We Lost In The Fire last night.

    Benicio Del Toro is, as always, just fascinating to watch and an enviable man on every level. His nuanced little reactions to the blandest of dialogue make me laugh, he can make almost anything worth watching, sorta in the vein of Nicholson.

    Aside from that though, I want to find who made this movie and beat the shit out of them. Why they had to make Halle Berry's character so unbelievably unlikable at every fucking turn is beyond me, and the entire thing feels like a screenwriting professor trying to make up a story about what people dealing with the death of their father would be like, full of sentimental bullshit with absolutely no depth. I couldn't even finish the thing it was so aggravating.

    If the person who wrote this actually dealt with the death of a close family member and drew on their own experiences to write this, they are insanely vapid, empty-headed shits who have no actual insight into themselves or the people around them. And if the person who wrote it actually doesn't have any personal experience with it, they should have found someone who does. It was fucking insulting.

    Yep. Benicio is one of our finest actors, but that movie was otherwise garbage.

    Also, they're putting out City Lights, Tokyo Story, Frances Ha, and this fucking thing which I imagine may be relevant to the interests of certain people around here.

    I was a bit underwhelmed with Kubrick's Lolita. But my god was Peter Sellers brilliant. I hadn't heard him mentioned in regard to the film hardly at all.

    I'm not sure Lolita ever needed to be adapted. That novel is all about the splendor of language, and if Kubrick and Sellers couldn't make a great film out of it, probably no one could. To be fair, I've only seen it once and thought it was fine, but never really felt compelled to revisit it.

    The best part was he was imitating Kubrick's voice in that movie.

    I watched The Last Temptation of Christ for the first time last night. Very good. Jesus was often portrayed as weak, confused, conflicted - even hateful - far from the composed Jesus we are used to. The end, with his guardian angel was a magnificent and shocking turn. And Harvey Keitel as Judas - I mean that's just great.

    And David Bowie as Pontius Pilate. I love that movie. I've read the book, too - I find the whole story so interesting.

    I watched Lovelace over the weekend. It was OK, Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard are good in their roles.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    I love the movie, and Sellers definitely plays a huge part of that love. He is fucking insane in it. It is weird that you've not seen much mention about him in that film though, I feel like I've read tons of material that cited it. I am pretty sure that's what made me really watch to watch it in the first place years ago.

    Besides Douglas (and Kubrick would have rather not), Sellers is the only actor Stanley worked with more than once.

    You guys.
    Matthew McConaughey gives the performance of his career that well deserves this year's Oscar for best Actor. If you have paid attention to the cinema world lately, you are no doubt aware that Mathew McConaughey has had something of a huge career boost the past several years. Each movie he's in he seems to be even more talented. In his last few films, McConaughey has came out of his shell by not showing that he can just play hot shot lawyers but almost any role. His acting is true and top notch form in MUD.
    From the moment he's on screen to the very ending of the movie, McConaughey draws you in and captures every second he's on film perfectly. His emotions, actions and even the way he talks is downright to the T for the character he's playing. Other up and coming actors need to pay attention to rolls like this, because it is these rolls that will defy the boundaries and become legends in themselves that are even bigger than the characters on screen.
