Silver Linings Playbook Review
Film: Silver Linings Playbook; Directed by: David O. Russell; Starring: Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Anupam Kher, Jacki Weaver, Chris Tucker, Julia Stiles, Brea Bee; Rating: ***1/2 - cloudy yet shines.

"Let's be positive, let's have a happy ending", "Let's not take the negativity."

"Excelsior" (ever-upwards in Latin) is the mantra of 'Silver Linings Playbook'. This is established in the very first scene of the film, at a mental hospital on the outskirts of Baltimore.

Adapted from the novel by Matthew Quick, the film is a love story of two indisputably damaged people on their way to.

David O. Russell on What Bradley Cooper Whispers at the End of 'Silver Linings Playbook'

David O. Russell on What Bradley Cooper Whispers at the End of 'Silver Linings Playbook'
The inaudible whisper has become an indie film convention, most notably seen (and not heard) at the end of Sofia Coppola's "Lost in Translation," and most recently in one of the final scenes of David O. Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook." In a discussion with the Hollywood Reporter, Russell takes a stab at what he thinks Pat (Bradley Cooper) softly murmurs to his ex-wife Nikki (Brea Bee) after seeing her at the dance competition in which he and Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence) compete. Russell says: "The intention of it is to say that the best way you can say goodbye to somebody is lovingly, from the best place of yourself, which doesn’t happen often enough in this world. I think very often, when it’s time to say goodbye to each other, we choose to agitate or turn it into something else, because goodbyes can be too emotional. But no,

Russell excels, but his stars steal the show. Bradley Cooper makes for a charming and enigmatic lead, but Jennifer Lawrence steals his spotlight. While everyone involved in “Silver Linings Playbook” pushes the bar higher and higher, it’s Lawrence who’ll be the toughest to top.

Silver Linings Playbook is a gameplan well coached and executed

Self-help and improvement are never easy tasks. They take hard work, persistence, and dedication from the individual. That person also needs the support of family, friends, and nurturing care to give him or her whatever they need to make that positive change. That’s what makes the recovery of Pat Solitano (Bradley Cooper, The Hangover) in Silver Linings Playbook all the more unlikely.

Pat was a former teacher, arrested for assaulting a colleague who was sleeping with his wife. He snapped when he stumbled in on the heinous act, triggering his bi-polar disorder, which he didn’t know he had until he was arrested and diagnosed. We are introduced to Pat, released from the mental health facility with a new outlook of positivity, redemption, reconciliation and a new mantra, “Excelsior” as a calming, coping device for any future outbursts to remind him that everything will be okay. He is released

Review: Stand-Out Performances Are the Silver Lining to the Slightly Overstuffed ‘Silver Linings Playbook’

Editor’s Note: Allison’s spot-on review originally ran way back at the beginning of the month, but the film is opening wide today so we’re sharing it once again. Sharing is good. Maybe we are all a bit crazy – whether we are lying to ourselves about the relationships we are in or why we believe holding a handkerchief or having the remote at a certain angle will determine the outcome of a game. But unlike most of us, Pat Solitano (Bradley Cooper), has been deemed mentally unstable by both the court and his doctors at the mental institution we find him in at the start of Silver Linings Playbook. Pat may seem fairly sane, albeit unflinchingly honest, but as we learn why he ended up in such a facility and watch him unravel at the sound of a certain song, it becomes clear that Pat is dealing with issues he may not be able to

‘Silver Linings Playbook’ Review

With The Fighter, director David O. Russell seemed to carve out a niche for off-beat dramedy centered around eccentric blue-collar characters - and his new film, Silver Linings Playbook is clear evidence that he’s getting more comfortable in said niche. The story is set in and around the area of Philadelphia, Pa and follows Pat Solitano (Bradley Cooper) an ex-teacher who is coming home from an institution after suffering a nervous breakdown. Pat is sprung (prematurely) by his ever-patient mom (Jacki Weaver) but his dad, Pat Sr. (Robert De Niro), isn’t so certain the homecoming is justified – on account of Pat Jr.’s constant petulance and the continued delusion that his estranged wife, Nikki (Brea Bee), is ...

Film Review: 'Silver Linings Playbook'

  • CineVue
★★★☆☆ Academy Award nominee David O. Russell follows up his bruising boxing drama The Fighter (2010) with Silver Linings Playbook (2012), a similarly bittersweet tale of mental illness and obsession starring The Hangover franchise's Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. Resident Philadelphian Pat Solitano (Cooper) has lost it all - including, it would seem, his mind. After catching his wife Nikki (Brea Bee) cheating on him in the shower and losing his job as a history teacher, Pat is sectioned in a public institution which he is released from eight months later, into the custody of his doting parents (Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver).

Silver Linings Playbook Review

[Note: This is a re-post of my review from the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival.  Silver Linings Playbook opens today in limited release.] We have acceptable levels of "crazy" in our society, and that in itself is kind of crazy. Some psychosis is cute and charming, while other acts of craziness demand hospitalization and medication. This distinction is obviously based on harm, both to others and to oneself. But there's a "healthy" level of crazy, and the search for that level is what makes David O. Russell's Silver Linings Playbook sharply comic and surprisingly sweet. O. Russell has once again returned to study the dysfunctional family, and while Silver Linings Playbook is softer than Flirting with Disaster and even The Fighter, it still has enough of an edge to deliver some great jokes, and strong performances to make the emotions ring true. Pat Solitano (Bradley Cooper) has been released from a mental hospitalized, and into the care of his parents Dolores (Jacki Weaver) and Pat Sr. (Robert De Niro). Pat Jr. was

Silver Linings Playbook | Review - Austin Film Festival 2012

There are those rare moments when mental illness comes in handy, and for Pat (Bradley Cooper), meeting Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence) is one of those moments. Pat’s screwed up, as is Tiffany, and although Tiffany wants Pat bad, Pat is pining for his wife, Nikki (Brea Bee), who is directly responsible for Pat’s breakdown. Pat’s just done a stint in the looney bin, and is living with his parents, Delores (Jacki Weaver), and Pat, Sr. (Robert De Niro). He is looking for those “silver linings” and anything that will reunite him with his wife. Tiffany plays along, but has other plans, and with some intriguing drama and much hilarity, she “might” find her bipolar soul mate.

Exclusive: Director Rob Masciantonio announces his next project, Fairyland

Director Rob Masciantonio who brought us the epic gorefest that was Neighbor has given us a heads up on what's next for him. He's announced his next project will be a short film called Fairyland and has plans to submit it to Sundance this summer.

Fairlyland deals with taking characters from myths and fables and puts them in a world where Soprano-types are real. There's a Facebook page set up for the short now so head over and check it out.

Personally I've read the script and it looks like a lot of twisty fun, especially at the end of course! There will be several Neighbor alumnus joining Masciantonio on this project including Pete Postiglione, Stink Fisherand Brea Bee with Josh Bender producing and you might even get to see a "certain geek" appear in it somewhere, who knows.

Vampires and Hemophiliacs, Together at Last in ‘Bleeder’

  • Tilzy.TV
Whether it’s Buffy on network TV, True Blood on HBO or a slew of more offerings on the web (I Heart Vampires and Vampire Killers just off the top of my head), filmmakers continue to feel if you carve out your own blood-sucking niche, fans will come (and, maybe, the money will follow). But with no shortage of mythological, quasi-evil, sanguine-centric plot lines, the question for viewers becomes: how intriguing is your spin on the Dracula story? For Bleeder, the new vampire series out of Philadelphia, it’s just intriguing enough. Co-written, produced and directed by Wade Balance and co-written, produced and starring Mark Kochanowicz, Bleeder brings a new twist to the genre. Alex is a hemophiliac – that is, a guy who frequently hemorrhages – who is lucky enough to encounter Charlotte (Brea Bee), a reluctant vampire who take pity on him as he weakens from blood loss in his alley alcove.
