It's astounding that this was made on only $15,000. I mean, really, it is. Just check out the trailer and tell me from that alone you wouldn't think it would have cost more to make.
Anyway, solid movie. Solid acting and photography, and I really dug the ambient, somber soundtrack. There are issues with the sound at times, and some of the CG was a bit noticeable. It's also pretty slow, don't go in thinking otherwise due to the type of movie it is. All-in-all though, I liked it.
Mother and Child
Annette Bening...just amazing in this film. I watched this by myself so I can't speak for others but she really controlled me as a viewer. At one point I felt one way, then another. Everyone played their role really well in this film. If you are in a relationship you think may go the distance, watch this movie. If you were adopted or plan to adopt, watch this movie. If you have children or plan to have children, watch this movie. Just watch this movie. It's a bit long, but was well worth watching for me. I rate this movie: Great
Strong performances from John Malkovich, Edward Norton, and Matt Damon. A bunch of good terciary roles including John Turturro and the lead female is smokin' hot in this movie. I'd rate it higher but the end was a little bit cliche.
its been running on the movie channels lately so I gave it a look. Pretty awful all the way around. Terrible story, terrible acting, terrible jokes, terrible cinematography, terrible lighting, terrible pacing. Nothing but one old used up cliche after another. It had a decent shot near the end as the friends were walking together as the sun was rising but other than that it was complete tripe. I can honestly say I have seen several better student films.
