My only criticism is that this was way too tidy. Unrealistically tidy. He comes to a crescendo and then gets heard, gets accepted, gets help, and gets better just by telling people because *togetherness is magic*. Up until they pretty much presented the polar opposite of the truth about the way people suffering from depression, anxiety, pstd, and general fuckery are treated by society irl, this was really really good. Except for Emma Watson's hair. I only mention this because her hair has always gotten my attention with it's BLAM of oHellYes. So. Emma Watson's hair may be mortal after all UPDATES TO FOLLOW.

Melancholia 2011,  R)
Melancholia
Warning:
Depression
Suicide


I got suckered into this thinking it was going to be some planet colliding science fiction. But it's just a bunch of people having a normal depressing dysfunctional family drama. And then unrelated to all that -as if it had just been character development (was it???)- And then those characters offhandedly notice that the planets are going to collide. Right at the very end. Like the last half hour of the film. It's like they had a story without any real plot, and couldn't find a convincing way to end the ...nonstory. so they destroyed the planet, the end.

Ordinary People
Warning:
Ableism
Ableist Slurs
Depression/Suicide
Binarism used to express Misogynistic Attitudes

A young man deals with the aftermath of losing his brother while dealing with his mother's roughness and his father's caring, both of which are depicted as maladjustment. The film maker's opinion of the father's emotional involvement as over-emotionality and over-involvement in his son's life makes no sense. They try depict him negatively by endowing him with feminine characteristics. His mother is emotionally abusive and childish.

Acting by Hutton and Hirsch is detailed and nuanced and full of win. The rest of the characters are unlikable.
27
Paper Man 2010,  R)

Two weirdos fall in Like. Slow, and neither particularly significant or entertaining. Indie movies are always pretending not to be movies..

artsy kung-fi. the film is entirely visual. i'm bored because the characters are boring and flat. And they communicate only by long stares and 1hr36minutes of violin solo. fights that consist of what appears to be dance-offs that feature a lot of airborn pirouettes and long long long stares. whatever. everybody just overdosed on botox.

Everything is Illuminated
Meh. I'm barely motivated to look at the screen, let alone follow the story. This review is only possible after the third pass, and because I thought I wasn't being fair reviewing a movie that I couldn't pay attention to. Well here it is. I paid attention and didn't leave for the whole thing.

It's boring as hell.

The soundtrack is thoroughly excellent, but this movie isn't even worth watching when there's nothing else to do.

Riiiiight. Okay, this didn't make any sense, all the characters were profoundly emotionally disingenuous. The emotional escalation and drama was forced and unrealistic. The acting is really good, theres just no plot what-so-ever, so all the hysteria makes no sense.

Mreh. Romeo and Juliet between troublemaking rich white girl and academically-inclined son of poor Mexican immigrants. Nunez is good. It's main selling point is the near-constant loose breast shots that are featured in every Kirsten Dunst movie.
