Movie Review

I don’t generally do film reviews on my personal blog, Enough Said however has a personal twist. Formalities out of the way: This 2013 American romantic comedy was written and directed by Nicole Holofcener, Walking and Talking, Friends With Money and the insanely neat Lovely and Amazing. The film stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus, James Gandolfini – in one of his final film roles – Toni Collette, Catherine Keener, Ben Falcone, and Toby Huss. The film was released on September 18, 2013 and received widespread acclaim from critics.

Holofcener has wonderful knack of portraying solid women in film, for me though, her understanding of aging – for both sexes – is what gives this film proper gravity :: Read the full blog post »»»»


Mental Health: A Place for Paedophiles A Documentary by Louis Theroux

Posted: December 20th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: REBLOG! | Tags: , , , , , , , , | Comments Off

This is a bit of a personal post, so I'm going to deviate, get a little off track – at the outset and throughout this post – So let me begin by outlining: This post is about mental health, more precisely a lack of. It's also about a Louis Theroux documentary titled A Place for Paedophiles, it's my last rant on Alex Brooks and it's about a 21 year old child I care for.

The latter point first: I'm a care for a gorgeous young lady, a 21 year old child who has been diagnosed with 6 separate mental disorders. She's been physically, mentally and sexually abused since she was 3 years of age, incarcerated since she was 11 years of age and forcibly admitted to psychiatric units 7 times in the past 12 months. She's self harmed since she was 13 years of age and been a serious drug abuser since she was 14.

Mental health is such a complex problem, an almost unbelievable mountain of human carnage, human despair and misery. Much of the problem can be put down to the lack of resources given to what will surely be the scourge of this 21st century, my heart goes out to those who face this devastation on a daily basis, respect.

One of the anecdotal lessons I've learned is that mental illness is much more pervasive than society at-large would believe, it's far more complicated and almost impossible to get ontop of :: Read the full article »»»»

Film Review: Roland Emmerich’s Anonymous

Posted: November 4th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Art News, Movie Review | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off
Anonymous ★★★★
Cast: Rhys Ifans, Rafe Spall,
Vanessa Redgrave, Joely Richardson
Director: Roland Emmerich
In Cinemas: Now

In his 1998 survey – Shakespeare: The Invention of the Human - Harold Bloom provides an analysis of each of Shakespeare’s 38 plays, “twenty-four of which are masterpieces.” Written as a companion to the general reader and theatergoer.

Bloom declares that bardolatry ought to be even more  of a secular religion than it already is. Bloom contends in this work that Shakespeare Invented Humanity, in that he prescribed the now common practice of Overhearing Ourselves, which he says drives our changes.

I’m not suggesting that Roland Emmerich’s latest film – Anonymous – in which the filmmakers introduce an alternative history of the Bard, then promptly sets about dismantling all we think we know, and all we’ve learnt about Shakespeare, is in anyway based on any form of fact, it’s a little more ambiguous in it’s take on possibilities. If shakespeare had written a 39th play though, Anonymous could very well have been his plot. Critics have been short on praise for Emmerich – the director of Independence Day, Godzilla and The Day After Tomorrow – most squarking that taking on a British period drama was a huge misdemeanor for one of Hollywood’s blockbuster kings.

The far to clever Luke Buckmaster of crikey.com wrote: “Much of the running time consists of well coiffed regal authorities conversing in dark hallways. Ignore the interesting ideas the script’s premise implies: Anonymous is not about how streaks of greatness can come from unexpected places or about how geniuses can be shunned from the history books, at least not in any meaningful ways. The acting is soporific, the writing dull and Emmerich’s fish-out-of-water direction is surprisingly consistent — he provides the film a steady ebb and flow — but lacklustre. Full disclosure: despite feeling well rested and wide awake when I entered the cinema, I slept through around 20 minutes of the second act” Read the full article »»»»
