After the Lesbian scene there really isn't much worth seeing.

Manhunter 8.5/10
It's a nice thriller and I presume a classic, but the fighting scenes were dreadful. And the whole ending, to that matter... A must watch, but it's past its time effects-wise.

A Dangerous Method 7/10

Considering the expectations I had for the movie, it kind of fell flat. Mortensen and Fassbender are some of my favourite actors but their roles were extremely restrained. The story wasn't terribly compelling and as for the tension between Jung and Freud, restrained still seems to be the best word I can come up with to describe that.

Knightley was alright but her role did seem very over the top (although I'm no expert with psychosis). The accent did seem out of place as well.

Just not a terribly compelling storyline, good acting and the score was pretty solid.

i've seen a bunch of movies i keep forgetting to review here, but two that i really liked in particular




terrific romcom, one of the most genuine scripts i've ever seen. i totally called this midway through and had my friend look up the writers... who were in fact married. everything about it rang true. sure it's impossible to make a movie like this without it being a wee bit cutesy tootsy, and thus for the average alpha male, vomit inducing... but i was watching it with a female friend and was in the mood. very good, nothing about it was cheesy at all, both leads were picture perfect. can't give it more than 8/10 for what it was, but it deserves every bit.




this one was a notch above, cronenberg did it again. the philosophy was there, as was the story and the acting. i was completely into the plot. i know the guy who reviewed it above complained that the spat between Freud and Jung wasn't pronounced enough, or to use another phrase, hammered home... frankly i was glad and thought it made for a better movie. and i'm sure that the subtlety of that strenuous relationship was lifted right out of the book.

it was the themes that made this movie what it was though. already being somewhat acquainted with the material, it was refreshing not to be treated like a moron throughout. the philosophy wasn't out of this world of course, but there were a few ideas touched upon -- specifically by knightley's character -- that definitely intrigued me. the whole notion of sexuality usurping Freud's mind in theory and Jung's mind in practise was played out perfectly, as was the latter's marriage.

acting and filming wise, i have no complaints. i actually kid you not didn't realize it was Knightly until a few days afterwards when a friend asked me how she was... after leaving the theater, both me and my buddy commented on how much the lead actress looked like knightly but it couldn't have been her, no way she could have pulled that off. but she totally did, i hope the movie wasn't released to early to void her chances at a best actress nom... she'd deserve it. Viggo was interesting, i kept wanting to not buy into his character because it seemed like such a silly cast, but every time i made the attempt, that subtle accent and his haughty mannerisms convinced me otherwise.

needless to say, i was impressed all round. 9/10, best of the year so far i reckon, at least of what i've seen.

Black Swan 8/10

Was very confused by this movie, but ended up loving it and understanding it in the end. Natalie Portman was phenomenal.

Employee of the Month 6.5/10

Pretty funny. Better than what I had heard about it. Dane Cook has great delivery for jokes.

Yeah, I really liked this one too. I didn't realize it was Knightly until I saw the credits.

I got see Cronenberg speak a couple of weeks ago. He mentioned that the woman that she played went on to become one of the first female psychoanalysts and was pretty much forgotten, until they found her papers a couple of decades ago. Can you imagine being her 100 years ago? Thinking that you were the only person on earth turned on by SM before there was even a vocabulary for it.

Cronenberg also showed two short films he did about cinema that are both on YouTube
link
link.

Also he mentioned that he is shooting his next feature on the Arri Alexa digital camera. And that it looks better than film. I just learned that both Drive and Hugo were shot on it. I think Hugo has a good shot an Oscar for cinematography.

If you didn't hear about it, a landmark occurred last October when Arri, Panavision and Aaton all stopped making film cameras. (Also check out the name of the Arri executive in the article.

Quote:
The demand for film cameras on a global basis has all but disappeared," says ARRI VP of Cameras, Bill Russell, who notes that the company has only built film cameras on demand since 2009. "There are still some markets--not in the U.S.--where film cameras are still sold, but those numbers are far fewer than they used to be. If you talk to the people in camera rentals, the amount of film camera utilization in the overall schedule is probably between 30 to 40 percent."
