Wow amazing performance!
I watched this movie expecting an overrated effort from Patty Jenkins and Charlize Theron. I was proven wrong. Charlize Theron gave one of the most astounding performances of the year, I knew that she had it in her to give good performances, but I never expected this from her. I think director Patty Jenkins has some good things going for her in the future. There were some troubles with the script, and I think Ms. Jenkins went a little to easy on Aileen. But, this film is a unique experience and a unique piece of work. Charlize Theron's performance is one to be remembered. And, it is a shame so many only look at her ability to grunge down for her role. Well People! She has to do that! SHE IS AN ACTRESS! She wasn't trying to win an Oscar(for all I know) she was doing her job, trying to make us believe she is Aileen. She gives an amazing performance you have to see, even the skeptics! I used to be one, but this was a fantastic performance! It will surely be remembered.
The Bourne Supremacy (2004)
I loved The Bourne Identity. But The Bourne Supremacy was awesome! The acting was very good and(unlike some people) I loved the cinematography was unique and really added to the scenes. I thought it was a great idea and it worked really well. The new director Greengrass did a fantastic job and looking forward to his next film he directs. Now the performances were superb. Matt Damon made me remember what a great actor he is( each film always reminds me how good of an actor he is, with the exceptions of Stuck on You and The Legend of Bagger Vance). Joan Allen was perfect for Pamela Landy, she is always good and this was a fantastic role for her. The surprise performance(for me) was Julia Stiles. Her work, in my opinion, has never been consistent, Her performances range from good(Ten Things I Hate About You) to misguided(Mona Lisa Smile). But, in one of her scenes with Matt Damon she just blew me away with just how good she truly can be. Brian Cox played the a-typical villain, but he played him well as he always does. All in all this movie was fantastic and surprisingly unique and I encourage every one to see it.
Viskningar och rop (1972)
Simply terrifying and amazing
As it has been said before, this cinematic masterpiece and experience is about a group of three sisters and their house keeper. The sister Agnes is dying of cancer and her sisters Karin and Maria pretend to care for her and the maid Anna truly shows how family bonds can be the weakest. Anna is truly a compassionante woman who wants to relieve Agnes from the excruciating pain she is going through. While Agnes is slowly dying in her bed and keeping track of memories and feelings, her sisters deal with their isolation and their own problems. Karin, who I think might be the oldest daughter, seems very cold and distant. But once we start hearing her thoughts and her memories. They show you why she is so distant and hard, it shows how she deals with her pain. Karen Thulin gives one of the most powerful performances I have ever seen on screen. She delivers the famous mutilation scene with such honesty and the viewer can't help but feel terrified when faced with her "problems." Liv Ullman gives an equally amazing performance as Maria. Maria is given the cliche as the sympathetic sister. The viewer learns that Maria is a purely shallow person who uses her "sympathetic attitude" to manipulate people. Then there is the maid Anna. She gives one of the most fascinating performances I have seen. She also gives the most touching scenes in the entire film. In the end, Anna is left alone in the house that is now empty. Agnes has died and the sisters and their husbands have left. Maria and Karin both think that Anna should at least be allowed to stay in the house a few more months till she finds work and she should be allowed to keep a "relic" in memory of Agnes and all the hardwork and devotion she gave to her. Anna says she wants nothing, but once everyone is gone. Anna pulls out her keepsake and her memory of Agnes. She pulls out Agnes's journal and begins to read it. It then goes to a flashback of the sisters and Anna in a happier time. As Anna reads the passage we catch our last glimpse of Agnes alive and happy. It is one of the most haunting scenes ever on screen. Another truly amazing scene is the dream sequence. When Liv Ullman begins to freak out and screams, it is truly terrifying in a unspeakable way.
Cold Mountain (2003)
Wow this was really good
Ok I wasn't sure about seeing this one in theatres. The reason being is because it is directed by the man who made The English Patient,a movie that seemed to be 8 hours but in actuality it was three and a half. But I am here to discuss Cold Mountain, so without further adieu I will move on. This was a excellent. Now I am partial to the smaller films this year like Lost in Translation I wasn't sure if I would like a major film line movie. But I had forgotten that big movies aren't bad and this movie was excellent. The first reason being is the performances. There wasn't a bad one in the film. Jude Law was very good in his performance as Inman. He really played the role very well and Tom Cruise would be absolutley horrible. Nicole Kidman was fantastic in another good role her third or fourth in a row. She really potrays Adas longing very well and has a very amusing scene with a chicken. Renee Zwelleger was very good very very good she deserves a oscar nomination and a oscar win. The supporting cast other than Renee were very good with
some fantastic performances including Natalie Portman, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, and Jack White. Now the script was very good, the scenery was fantastic, and the costumes were very authentic. Now Minghella deserves at least to be nominated for his wonderful directing job. Now I was hoping other films would win the academey award for best picture but Cold Mountain deserves to win.
