Movie Reviews

I am very satisfied with this movie.

This movie starts off slowly. It is in the perspective of a gorgeous teenager who is solely concerned with her boyfriend. When her mom goes missing, she assumes that her mom kept her promise to leave her dad. As she recaps the relationship between her parents, the viewer is compelled to feel sorry for the wimpy father and agree with the teen's apathy towards her aggressive mother. In utter dismissal of her mom's abandonment, the teenager tries to focus on her boyfriend's reduced sexual interest. However, her intuition about her mother's disappearance keeps alerting her through inexplicable dreams. Then, when the teenager becomes an adult, things get GOOD! At the end, I realized that I really underestimated this movie. I had no idea this movie was going to be this good. I am glad I watched it and I want to see it again in order to catch some clues that I may have missed. The plot twist at the end REALLY caught me off-guard and I am still wondering if there was some hint throughout the movie that I missed. If anyone catches the hints, be sure to post them as spoilers.

White Bird in a Blizzard

I can take or leave Gregg Araki but I will confess that even his failures are more interesting than a lot of other filmmakers' successes so I always give him the benefit of the doubt. Unfortunately this new one is more "Splendor" than "Mysterious Skin," as it meanders through a disconnected plot line involving a missing mother, never really letting the characters get fleshed out before ultimately pulling the rug out from under the audience. There isn't much going on here, although Shailene Woodley gives it a good shot. It's just that the story isn't particularly interesting and the film is rather lifeless. Eva Green's campy performance is effectively creepy but her scenes are too often so short that we never get to enjoy her much.

Kooky, Laughable, Livid, Ludicrous and Lurid

I completely enjoyed this film and am looking forward to watching it again. I enjoy Gregg Araki's work because it's always a bit strange, and this film is no exception. Everyone acts a little weird and does a great job of it. A few of the script lines had me laughing out loud. The pacing is stop and go so be prepared for that. In addition, there are some things that might not make sense, so if you like things to be all set up in the correct compartments, forget it. Essentially, a lot of Araki's films are about getting out of the comfort zone. Obviously this creates a lot of anxiety among motion picture producers and even more so amongst the viewers of his films. The fact that this film exists at all is a testament to the perseverance of a director with a unique skew on the world and the gift of being able to capture it.
