Bad Parents (2012)
Please don't see this
Just saw this at the Austin Film Festival.
Plot lines are dropped. Narration goes nowhere. Much of the story stutters and starts and does not end. There are lots of plot holes and unexplained and unresolved issues with story lines, characterizations, and the writing was not strong enough to really make me care what happened, it just made me angry that it didn't finish.
The sound mixing and editing was unbearable. The lines recorded in post were so evident and that it was literally blaring in the middle of the character's conversation. Almost no attempt to incorporate them into the prerecorded dialogue.
Characters are not fleshed out and unlikable. No one has a redeeming quality. The casting was misdirected (why does the black/white biracial couple have a child darker than the black parent?). People are introduced into the movie and then never seen again.
There was a lot of potential. Disappointing.
The Red Shoes (1983)
Anyone else see this as a kid?
It's been a long time since I have seen this movie, so if the summary is jumbled that's why. From what I gather, this girl desperately wants a pair of red shoes she saw on a rich girl's feet. But alas! She lives with her miserly grandmother. She runs away with the help of some red-headed man but she pays dearly for her decision. She must dance the rest of her life, cold, alone, and no one to help her but the red-headed man who seems to get a little too much enjoyment at her discomfort.
This movie frightened me a lot as a kid, but it was quite addicting. I think I watched probably three times a week. I never quite understood it, though I might now, but it's been a long time since I have seen it. The man with the red hair though, I think he's the one that made me afraid of clowns for the rest of my life, very creepy.
