liked blue pee did not like rickshaw dud e(or any of the males very much) i felt sad for EVERYONE
Painful. The writing is deplorable. Interaction forced and embarrassing. Who could empathize with a middle-class cock-teaser with an abstract neurosis except an audience of deadshits begging to be diagnosed, when all they really need to do is "grow the fuck up"? Even more disappointing considering the excellent mise en scène. Simply, more meaning in watching my dog's expression when she shits on the grass.
Great emotion from Michelle Williams, but that's all I can really say. The chemistry between her and Seth Rogan's character is undeniable. And the chemistry between her and the other guy is practically nonexistent. It's hard to see why she falls for him. And who pulls a rickshaw, seriously. Also, am I the only one who thought the threesome were out of Williams' character? I felt genuine disgust.
Grande anti-romance, interpretações impecáveis, fotografia encantadora e em cores berrantes/saturadas. A actriz Sarah Polley, comanda aqui como autora, escrevendo e realizando com uma sagaz dedicação. Magnifico, delicado, detalhado, pertinente, requintado, preciso, exuberante...perfeito!
i feel like i should hate it because of all its tweeness and a few ill advised scenes but in there somewhere is an amazing film
Ugh. The last half hour pushed a #filtered minor drama into absolute silly for me. I actually burst out in a laugh of disgust. I just don't understand the appeal of a man who has no qualms stealing a married woman. Then it all goes to its a wonderful life hell. Pacing, atmosphere all out the Window.
Although some scenes were breathtakingly poetic, others seemed too desperately 'indie' in that absurdly cliché way,and the film doesn't really says much we don't already know- or deduce from the first ten minutes of the film. Silverman's character is completely out of touch with the ambiance that Polley tried to create but Williams' performance was hands down one of the best of the year.
While there were things I liked about the film -- the cinematography was beautiful, use of a certain song -- I hated Margo, I thought Williams' performance was strong, but the character herself I didn't, I'm pretty sure I dated a Margo. Polley has shown herself to be a fine director and writer and I certainly look forward to more of her directing efforts when she gets around to them.
This film features a stunning performance from Micehlle Williams. She perfectly captures a young woman stricken with wanderlust, one who has never really had to 'grow up.' Her immaturity and confusion about the world cause her no end of grief, but Williams manages to comes across as a sympathetic and three-dimensional being rather than 'the adulteress.' While some of the dialogue is a bit too on-the-nose and the third act throws a few curveballs that took me out of the movie, overall "Take This Waltz" is a well-observed and thoughtful film about marriage and relationships. As I get older, these are the kinds of movies I'm drawn to because they do cause you to pause and consider the future.
I liked the acting, cinematography, and color palette, but the characters fall short. None of them clicked with any sort of real chemistry for me, but I like a few of them on their own quite a bit. Then the dialogue was just sort of bland at parts in comparison to the feeling the colors, music and shots set up. I don't know.
