The Counselor Regissert av Ridley Scott
In the director’s commentary for the excellent Blu-ray of The Counselor, the most underrated and indeed ridiculously maligned film of 2013, Ridley Scott muses that the proliferation of devices and the amount of time people spend looking at media hasn’t made them more sophisticated. If anything, audiences have less tolerance than ever for movies that don’t spoon-feed them the story.

The Counselor features alongside its depressingly obvious visual metaphors and gratingly faux-astere brutality a two-for-one special of alternately neurasthenic and embarrassingly over-cranked acting: understandably tuckered out after his 12 Years a Slave pratfalls, Michael Fassbender gives perhaps the first truly lazy performance of his career, while Diaz… gives ’er with the intensity of a true believer.

The Counsellor is indeed quite maddening. It’s obvious that the film is doing something unusual and potentially interesting – but its actual pleasures are few and far between… The Counsellor is a fascinating film, but it’s diminished by the brevity of our lives: it’s got Death on the brain, and its morbid obsession ends up sucking all the energy out of it. It’s singular and fatalistic, and by all means watch it. Just don’t expect to enjoy it.

    “It was too gynecological to be sexy">Diaz rubbing herself against the Ferrari windshield was some insane shit./"Are you really that cold?"|The truth has no temperature."|How in holy hell did Cameron Diaz not snag an Oscar for her powerhouse performance? Undoubtedly a career-best performance. Diaz, Cruz, Fassbender, Pitt, Bardem, Perez, Ganz? WOW!Best Ridley Scott film in 20 years and it totally flew under the radar.

  • Michael H. CLAES's rating of the film The Counselor

    Un super casting où Cameron DIAZ, Penelope CRUZ, Brad PITT & Javier BARDEM distancient -de loin- Michael FASSBENDER. Mais où est la profondeur de Cormack MC CARTHY sous le vernis de cette production hollywoodienne? ... A great cast, where Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Brad Pitt and Javier BARDEM distance by far Michael FASSBENDER. But where is the depth of Cormack MCCARTHY under the gloss of this Hollywood production?

  • J. O.'s rating of the film The Counselor

    Moments ranging from brilliant to atrocious, this was a bit of a misfire for me. As badly as I wanted to love it, it just couldn't set its hook in me. The dialogue was clever and sharp as a bolito, on paper. On camera, it seemed a little dry and mishandled. Diaz gives the worst performance, while all other players are pretty charming most of the time. The thrills were thrilling, but perhaps a little too few.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film The Counselor

    Cormac McCarthy's particular brand of grim fatalism and outmoded misogyny makes for strange bedfellows with director Ridley Scott's glossy, music video-style aesthetic. And yet the slick visuals go a long way in making the disjointed narrative more palpable. The biggest issue may be that, for a film full of colorful supporting characters, the 'counselor' at the center of it all is the least compelling figure here.

  • Ari's rating of the film The Counselor

    I'd be tempted to call this Ridley's tribute to Tony if the film hadn't started production before his suicide. I was never really a fan of Tony but this film makes me miss him. In Tony's hands, the film could have achieved a truly delirious incoherence. But this is a tonal mess and stylistic disaster and unfortunately makes Cormac McCarthy's floridly brilliant nihilistic monologues that much more jarring.

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Counselor

    One of the less politically correct mainstream movies I've seen in years. The main character, as if he were a child, is told numerous fables during the whole movie but he's unable to grasp their meaning. He can only comprehend the surface of things: according to Ridley Scott, he's an American. Masterpiece.

  • Quentin Carbonell's rating of the film The Counselor

    I'm still making my mind about this one, things I still cannot describe or assess, but it was way more interesting at first sight than I suspected and heard (although Independencia's review was quite interesting). However that scene with Diaz, the face of Bardem, what has been seen cannot be unseen.

  • msmichel's rating of the film The Counselor

    Watchable but empty exercise from Ridley Scott while not deserving the widespread scorn it got from the mainstream press doesn't really deserve defending either. Very weak script that never really seems to reach its destination with a mix of fair to middling performance from its 'all-star' cast. Technically strong (it is a Scott picture) its story and character weaknesses are just exaggerated by comparison. A miss.
