|Title:||Silver Linings Playbook|
|Director:||David O. Russell|
|02.04.14||Netflix|| For some reason this fell through my admittedly wide cracks after it hit DVD and Netflix. Remedied. I liked it a bunch. Thought everybody was great, including DeNiro who kind of proves he can still act when he feels like it. Russell's newfound inquisitive and wandering eye as a director is interesting to me for the most part although I feel like he gets a taaad too into it here. I also feel like... I mean yeah it's great and all that we're seeing a realistic and empathetic look at mental illness and all that other PC stuff... but is it really so believable that crazy meeting crazy fixes everything? Aren't they just a few more fights away from a Sid & Nancy situation? It's a bit Hollywood for such a "bold" look.|
But it was fun to see Chris Tucker again. It'd be great if he would show up in more movies.
So yeah I wound up liking this a bunch. Especially the move where Jennifer Lawrence jumped and thrust her crotch into Bradley Cooper's face.
