|01.18.10||DVR|| I figured "Hey, there's a few Sam Mendes movies that I haven't seen. I should check them out!" Once again, I should've listened to my growing gut and let this one pass me by. It was shot very well and I guess this is the sort of movie where I'm supposed to marvel at the acting or whatever but no. Sorry, but spending two hours with a fighting couple is not my idea of a good time, even if it's Liz Taylor and Richard Burton (and Winslet and DiCaprio are no Taylor/Burton). An actively depressing movie. I can't imagine anything that someone could say that could get another person to see this movie spoilers in the fake convo below):|
Person A: Hey man, have you seen Revolutionary Road?
Person B: No, should I?
A: Oh yeah, it's great! Leonardo DiCaprio plays an unhappy cheating husband to Kate Winslet and they fight a lot but then decide to move to paris and they don't fight as much for a little bit but then she catches pregnant and they decide not to go to Paris after all so they fight more then Winslet dies!
