Movie Reviews:

  • tmdb39513728: **Dolly Mopping**
    (29 January 2013)

    Jennifer Lawrence is one magnificent slut. Her performance in _Silver Linings_ is a tour de force. She nails it. Not since Jennifer Jason Lee in _Last Exit to Brooklyn_ has a trashy trollop been played so convincingly. She easily deserves to win the Oscar for best actress and for any other category the film might win since she is the reason it’s in the running at all. It’s not easy being a slut. And harder still garnering sympathy for one. We can never be certain if her salacious wonts are biological or self-imposed. The grand old whore is a whole lot more desirable. She is typically forced into a her predicament for money or by male coercion. She’s portrayed as a victim and tattooed with a heart of gold. But the nymphomaniac is a sadder sort. She’s not as fetching or sentimental. Why should we care about her? It’s clear that she either can’t get enough carnal pleasure for herself or desperately seeks endless attention from men. Pathetic, is it not? But Lawrence absorbs the role and literally runs with it. Perhaps even re-writing the Dolly-Mop playbook. This movie will be required viewing for budding psychologists. And while Bradley Cooper does an impressive job bouncing the the bi-polar ball, we know he’s acting. Fine work Mr. Cooper, no one else could have done it better, maybe. But down the street a few blocks, we entirely lose ourselves in Ms Lawrence. She deftly out-performs them all. Daniel Day Lincoln has to be relieved that there is a gender divide in the acting awards categories. Lawrence is so adept at playing the unapologetic slut that we suspect she’s not acting. That she’s spilling her guts. Revealing all the sores and warts of her true self. And this is what makes her so great in the movie.

  • Kamurai: Great watch, probably won’t watch again, and can recommend.

    This is a great movie that I don’t care about. I’m not a particularly big fan of either Bradley Cooper or Jennifer Lawrence, though they are clearly great actors, and give a fantastic performance in this, especially with the range of emotions delivered and broad spectrum of dialogue topics.

    It’s about two sad, broken people who are trying to rehabilitate and release back into society despite their behavioral problems. While that is intriguing from a psychological perspective, I found it to be more sad than fun, which does make it powerful and worthy of awards and your attention, but it’s not a movie that I’m going to re-watch lovingly.

    The writing is excellent: well structured and has good content, with an odd message that it is okay to lie to people when it is in their best interest so that you can get them to a potential to better themselves even if choose not too, and that is what love is.

    The movie also focuses a fair bit on proper etiquette of social interactions, football, and dancing: none of which I’m particularly fond of watching.

    So while there isn’t a lot for me in this, objectively, I do believe that a lot of people will like this and it is well worth a watch.
