Kicking And Screaming

Both types of action, that the title claims to be lacking in the film and that's the only thing you can whip Noah for, in Kicking And Screaming. The writer and director Noah Baumbach's Kicking and Screaming is funny. Natural funny, not let me set this or that up so that when this or that... Continue Reading →

Solo Con Tu Pareja (Love In The Time Of Hysteria)

How to be naive towards your approach to your own life, in Solo Con Tu Pareja. So this is how Alfonso Cuaron directs this love story. He finds out how the protagonist sees or feels and frames it as that type of genre. And as you go through this love story in the writer and... Continue Reading →

The Song Of Bernadette

How to simply gaze and wonder in the wonders of the creator, and I mean both God and the filmmaker, in The Song Of Bernadette. What a blend of mixture of genre. Leave genre. It pits one of the most basic component debates, in the ring and the fight that we see is quite an... Continue Reading →

Ben-Hur: A Tale Of The Christ

How to be so large and still rely upon such minute details, in Ben-Hur: A Tale Of The Christ. The director Fred Niblo's Ben-Hur: A Tale Of The Christ is an odd tale. I mean, it's a known tale, a great tale. But it felt somehow different to me. And I couldn't particularly point my... Continue Reading →

About A Boy

How to be loyal to your characters and even ask them to be so, in About A Boy. The director Chris and Paul Weitz's About A Boy is a pretty standard flick that drools over fanboy moments created by its own script. But I feel though being a slave to its script, there was no... Continue Reading →
