White people......j/k...maybe.
This film is typical for director Mcqeen. Powerful, realistic, gritty, emotional, visual. This movie requires you to absorb pain and suffering to really understand the main characters. It is not for everyone. The performances and the score are what this movie is all about.
Lonely, erotic, devastatingly depressing, poignant and just... sad. Unlike some of the comments below, I feel that the quiet moments this movie portrayed were very close (if not) a symbolism of what reality is. When you're alone and it's just you, those quiet moments, there's not a narrative explaining your feelings. It's just you. Great movie about addiction. Two types of addiction. Sex and Love. Give it a watch.
Really sexy film...
Great movie, Fassbender is amazing. And he's also HOT. ;)
uhmmm... i probably shouldn't have watched it... i found it really slow at times... most times... but did enjoy a few scenes. it's pretty much like real life. wait for elevator. wait for train. some sort of problem that seems deep rooted and like it's not changing any time soon.
there just wasn't any joy or laughter in this movie. so that's what makes it not like real life, to me. no glimmer of hope. nothing positive at all, really. i mean, i can relate to that feeling, but it's really just skimming the surface. i guess this movie just seemed superficial, to me.
i'm pretty biased towards happy goofy playful fun creative quirky funny movies, tho. so this definitely wasn't any of that.
i'm not gonna recommend it, but... you may like it.
Dont get this movie, to me this movie bearly has a plot.
Sometimes, you watch a movie, and you just...don't...get it. I was not sucked into (forgive the word choice) this movie and it stirred no emotional response in me. I think the lack of back-story and understanding of what drove the behavior of the two main characters simply led to my viewing indifference. I really didn't enjoy the script, there wasn't any humor, any profound insights- the scarcity left me hungry for poetic cinematography to feast on. In this film, I found none either. It may be a "love it" or "hate it" kind of film. I will say the actors seemed to do well with the material they were given. It's rare that I rate well-under IMDB. For me, this film was 4/10.
Ah. Maze. Ing.
Really one of the best movies of all time. Fassbender and Mulligan lay it all on the line. Brutally honest depiction of addiction, mental illness and sheer utter lonliness. The spare, haunting soundtrack and NYC cinemetography are perfect accompaniments. A movie that should have easily garnered Fassbender (not to mention Mulligan and director McQueen) an Oscar nod, but just too risque for the Academy, sadly.
This sexually graphic NC-17 rated movie is not for everyone, but I'll take this movie over Silver Linings Playbook any day of the week. 11/10
