Other Movies Seen By This Director (0)
|05.27.15||Netflix|| This is not exactly what I thought it would be and at first I thought it was worse than what I thought it would be but as the movie went on I came to like it more and more. I still think it's a little odd tonally speaking - not funny enough to be a comedy, too goofy to really work as a drama - but it's definitely interesting. And I think that could be said for all of Tom McCarthy's movies... some resonate more than others (i'd put this on the level of The Visitor, I liked Win Win and Station Agent more) but they are all interesting and go to places you don't really see in other movies which demands respect. This one really skirts some odd lines that, were it in the hands of other writers would have gone in dramatically different directions, the choices, some of which I didn't agree with (I didn't care for the dinner scene at all for example, found the whole thing cruel rather than sentimental which was probably what was intended), were nonetheless interesting.|
Have I said "interesting" enough?
