Single mom Laura (Farmiga), along with her awkward 14 year-old son Henry (MacDougall) is forced to drive Jack (Plummer), her estranged, care-free pot dealing father across country after he's kicked out of yet another nursing home. The road trip veers off course when Jack decides to make a couple 'stops' and Henry asks to see his ne'er-do-well dad Leonard (Cannavale), completely upending Laura's attempt to hold her family together and ultimately forcing her to finally see her father for the man he really is.

Good movie about sexual feelings and the difficult choices in one's own body. The story, and the film, is directed by Steven Soderbergh who, in my opinion, has been trying to create a little film similar to, for example, "Titanic". My opinion is that he has succeeded. There are two aspects that give the film its importance. One is the cinematography, especially the slow motion sequences. These sequences make the audience feel the voyeuristic feeling of being the voyeur, but in a safe and controlled environment. The other aspect is the directing, as the film deals with some very complex subjects. The director gives the viewers a sense of being in a dark place. The film is in black and white, and I like that aspect of it. Also, the film tells a great story, but it is also about two couples, and the tension between them, and the other people in the film. I think that this film is very special because of the three main actors, John Cusack, Jack Black, and Nicole Kidman. I think that the actors have really captured the emotions of the characters. I would definitely recommend it. The film is not a very sexy film. It is dark and uncomfortable. But, as a movie, it is a very powerful film. I do not think that this film will make a big impact on the market. I think that people will just enjoy it. I give the film an 8/10.

This film is funny, heart-warming, and a little bit subversive. But, to be honest, I don't see a reason to see it twice. The plot is rather simple: a love triangle and the events that surround it, in particular the two leads' meetings. I can't say much about the plot. I'll leave that to the more intelligent readers. The characters are fairly well-developed, and there is a lot of heart. Also, the film contains a few clever scenes. One is when "Helen" (played by the amazing Zooey Deschanel) has a breakdown and the camera pans over her as she recites poetry in a state of shock. I love the scene. But the real pleasure of the film for me was when the two leads started a relationship and that was the moment where I really got to see the real characters that were being portrayed. The film is funny and heartfelt, though, and there is no pretense. If you want a film that is pure and simple, then this is it. I'm not sure what the critics are saying about this film, but it is the film that made me see "The Piano" and I will gladly admit that this is one of the best films I've ever seen. I give it 8/10.

It is a delightfully subversive film that has some wonderful and clever humor that, while in places comical, is a good and necessary departure from the norm in its depiction of the themes of tolerance and injustice in the United States. The story is based on a famous novel by Patricia Highsmith, "The Rape of Cicely Tyson" and the film is directed by James Mangold, a very accomplished and original screenwriter. Mangold's first major film, "Mystic River" with Ben Affleck and the late Kate Winslet, is a film that uses humor and dark humor as an effective tool in the attempt to challenge the moral of our society. It is a major breakthrough, and Mangold's later films with the same names (and with the same stars, in a different order) are very successful films that touch very close to the heart. "Traffic" is a very timely and intelligent film. In a very good way. The humor and the violence are most certainly "Pulp Fiction" without the violence. But it is not at all a mindless violent film, with a constant stream of violence (sometimes very graphic) interspersed with scenes of extreme fun, hilarity, or even horror, which is typical of Mangold's films. It is intelligent, and to me, is a great departure from the norm. It is a film that is both brilliant and totally original, and to me, is worthy of the praise that it has received. I hope that it does very well. 8/10

Lizzie and Edward are the usual couple with no real relationship to one another. Their marriage was an unhappy one as they have been unable to work out how to deal with the separation. Eventually Lizzie decides to break it off with Edward but he is not entirely sure what he would do. Eventually Lizzie ends up on the wrong side of the tracks but that is a way of life for Edward and Lizzie. They have a long and friendly relationship and their relationship is the main focus. I liked this film because it was a beautiful look into the world of a relationship between two people that are so far from one another that they can't get near to each other in any way. It's a very downbeat and realistic portrayal of a relationship but there is also some lightheartedness and comedy. I thought the script was very engaging and the acting was good. Lizzie was very convincing as she is in real life and Edward was very convincing in the role of a man that was deeply hurt and frustrated with his life. This film was a very good film, I'd recommend it to anyone.

I loved this film! I loved the cast and the director who used his camera to tell his story. I thought the plot was a bit hard to follow but that was not a problem. I thought the humor was very subtle and light-hearted. I was surprised at how many times I laughed out loud! I loved it! I would recommend this film to anyone who enjoys life on the edge. I think everyone should watch it!

You'll notice this coming, since most reviewers have been slating this movie for too long. But it's one of those movies that can either inspire or frustrate, depending on your point of view. It has an amazing cast, and a great plot, a little too long and maybe a little too simplistic, but hey, what do you expect when you go to see a film called "Being There" or "Saving Private Ryan"? The one thing that I can think of that the movie should have done better was the character development. There was a very brief scene towards the beginning of the movie where Ed Harris and Sam Elliott talked about their families, and how they had to change from what they thought they were doing to what they actually were doing. The characters had a lot of potential, but it was never fully developed. Other than that, it's a great movie. You'll see a lot of great performances, and the cinematography and sound are pretty great. Even if you don't like Quentin Tarantino, this is a great movie. 8/10

I have seen several movies that were made by the creators of the movie "American Pie" (1999). I don't know if this movie is the same, but I believe it's a variation of that movie. The idea of the movie is that a group of boys go to the "legendary" Kansas City Bar (the place where great acts were performed before they were famous) to get laid. In the middle of the night they find the bar is closed because of a sex-crazed gang of 20-somethings who have been drinking and then driven mad by drugs. So they get the same idea, but have to keep it a secret from the girls in the bar. This movie is a kind of parody of American Pie, but at the same time it's a comedy about the genre itself. And in a way it's a romantic comedy with a serious tone. I think the creators of this movie are trying to say that if you want to be famous or have a good time, you have to follow your dreams and not the consequences. So when the gang goes back to the bar and does the things that they did in the first half of the movie, the second half of the movie is quite similar to American Pie. This is the most romantic comedy I've seen, and it's great to see a new Hollywood movie that doesn't suck and can be enjoyed by both men and women. This movie is worth watching if you like these types of movies.

If you don't like musicals, you'll probably hate this movie. If you do like musicals, you'll probably love this movie. This movie is very different from musicals. The movie is an honest story about the price of fame and the people who are pushed too far to break that boundary. This movie is a must see if you're a fan of musicals. This is also a must see if you like the idea of artists running out of money and needing to take it back. It is a movie that will stick with you after the movie is over. This is a movie that you can watch over and over and enjoy it.

This is a very good movie. I was amused, and I thought it was clever. But I can't really say that it is a very good movie. However, it is very funny. I gave it an 8. It was funny, but not great. I recommend this movie to all people who like great comedy movies. It is good.

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock. Oh no, what is happening. Your friend (or ex-friend, if you want to be more specific) is having some sort of split personality. One day he's very funny and sweet, the next he's very annoying, you don't really like him, etc. This is a very graphic movie, I'm not really sure if it's a comedy or not, but it has that same feel that a lot of movies have had over the past decade, and that's a good thing. The movie is supposed to be a comedy, so there's that to it. There are many jokes, but most of them are meant to be humorous and not to make you laugh (for the most part). It doesn't really deal with any serious subjects, though there is a certain scene in which one of the characters tells another character, "it's a disease". And then he continues by saying that it's a disease that was only invented by those who think that it's funny. It's a very subjective film and if you are not really into watching a lot of gore, violence, weirdness, etc. you may not find the movie funny. The one really gross scene is a scene in which one of the main characters is holding a puppy up to the light to show her that he has cancer. He tells her that he was going to take the puppy away from her, but she suddenly grabs him and holds him up to the light, which I assume is a representation of him going to be taken away. The most gross thing I have ever seen in a movie was the scene in which a character has a huge cut across the top of his head. But that's not really a gross movie, that was just a little too graphic, and I think that maybe it was intended to be, but it really wasn't. I'm going to call it "gross", but it's not really gross in the sense that it's too graphic. The scene where he is being put in the bathtub is really gross, but I didn't really find it that funny. I think it was meant to be, but it's not. I think what is gross about this movie is that it tries to be too graphic and takes itself too seriously. It is a movie that's supposed to be funny, so don't expect a "cute" movie, because it's not. This is supposed to be a very serious movie, and there are scenes in which you might think that the characters are going to be killed or at least seriously injured, but instead they stay alive. I don't know how much I liked this movie, but I was extremely entertained by it and it did a lot for me. It's not a movie that you are going to be laughing at, but it is one that is going to be entertained. So, for what it is, it's a good movie. I recommend it.

A really great little film with a fantastic soundtrack. I also love the way the characters express their feelings, especially when it comes to two female leads who feel lost. The editing was very good too. I didn't feel the need to fast forward any of the movie and I liked that the characters were in there own little worlds. This is a great film for people who enjoy existential stories that deal with death, death and the fact that we are all on a journey that is meant to end. I think people who are into movies that deal with death and the meaning of life, will also enjoy this film. I give this film a 8/10.

Not everyone who doesn't go to movies has to be a professional filmmaker. The actual filmmaking takes away from the movie-making itself. This movie is about a group of women and how they deal with all the vagaries of the film business. The movie doesn't really care about the audience. I'm not really sure what I would have done with it if it had been an after-school special type of movie. The movie shows how these women deal with the pressures of having to produce a film for a producer's dinner, making the final cut, and the rejection of a project that they feel is in the least bit of their nature. The movie is very well-written and very entertaining. There are some funny parts in the movie and it also provides some very good moral lessons about the limitations of art. Overall, this movie is very well-done and the actors do a very good job with their roles. Highly recommended.

I have a lot of respect for David Fincher. His films are complex, well thought out and are very well acted. It is my belief that some people can't appreciate Fincher because he isn't a "real" director. For me, I can see why some people don't like him. As a director Fincher is not the typical Hollywood hack who has his ass handed to him on a platter. However, as a screenwriter he seems to have an ability to create amazing dialogue and scenes. I always felt that Fincher's style was in many ways "imperfect", but that it was beautiful. I guess I just couldn't fully appreciate what he was doing as an actor. In many ways his best work was in Lost In Translation, an excellent, well acted film that really shows Fincher's versatility. I also think that he is an excellent writer and that he has a knack for writing realistic dialogue that you don't need to be "American" to understand. That said, in terms of "realism" and plot development, Lost In Translation is certainly better. I also found the female characters in Fincher's films to be sometimes wooden, but not really terrible. I would say that the female characters in Fincher's films are more intelligent and strong-willed than the men, and they have their own thoughts and ideas about how to live their lives. This works better for me because I am usually not emotionally attached to the characters. I don't want my wife or girlfriend to find out what I do on a Friday night, so I just go to bed with my empty beer and popcorn and move on to the next movie. However, I will say that I am very aware of how Fincher's films are visually and how he is able to capture a perfect "flow" of the film. For me the most beautiful aspect of Fincher's films is the photography, the composition, the lighting and the overall visual design. Fincher uses this to great effect in his films, but also in his screenplays. When I first saw the film Gattaca, I was very impressed. When I saw the film Lost In Translation, I felt like I was watching a documentary or a character study. I think that Fincher is able to get a good shot of a shot of a shot of a shot and so on. Fincher's films have a good feeling to them, like it is being filmed on location. While Lost In Translation is the most beautifully shot film I have seen in a while, Fincher's films are also visually beautiful. I think that Fincher's style of writing is great because he always seems to create a beautiful and realistic plot line, and I think that this is the reason that the films are so great. However, I think that Fincher's films are very difficult to write. Fincher is very poor at conveying emotion in his scripts. I can understand why this is, and I think that it is because he doesn't seem to have an idea of what is important. Fincher is not the first director to use this issue, but Fincher is the only one to take it to a whole new level. I think that Fincher is very good at coming up with plot lines that have a very obvious and obvious connection to something that he is interested in or that he thinks he can use to his advantage. Fincher makes a good job of the use of symbolism and symbols in his films. I think that the symbolism in Fincher's films is the most important part of his style. I am a big fan of symbolism and symbolism in film. I think that Fincher's films are so well thought out and so beautifully photographed that I think that they have very important symbolism that the viewer can get and get and get. In other words, Fincher is able to create amazing pictures and he is able to create an amazing and meaningful plot line that is very difficult to write. Fincher's films are very well directed, but they are also very poorly written and his writing is not really "imperfect". Fincher's films have strong plots, well-written dialogue and well-shot pictures. Fincher's films are also very realistic and well-constructed. I think that Fincher's style of film-making is very powerful and he is very good at creating beautiful images and telling a very complex and interesting story. Fincher's films are really different from the other directors. Finc

I liked this film for the most part, but it had its flaws. The acting was good, but I could understand how some of the scenes could have been stretched out a bit. Also, the ending seemed a little to abrupt. The writing was good, but I was not sure about the ending. The story could have been better, but I don't think it would have been. It was a very good film, but there were some flaws that could have been cut. I recommend this film, but you can see it as a first watch, if you are not a die-hard Harry Potter fan.

I recently saw this movie, and after watching it, I felt like I had been given a very rare gift. This is a movie that really looks at the human mind, and if you can look at it that way, you might have trouble looking at it otherwise. If you can see it that way, you might think of the movie as very dangerous. For those of you who have seen the movie, there are some pretty big plot holes. The major problem with this movie is that there is so much potential. Many movies have strong actors, but there is really no structure. There are the characters, and then there is the story. This movie was about the characters, and I felt that this movie should have been about the characters, not the story. The characters were great, and I loved the performances, especially Edward Norton's. Edward Norton is a great actor, and I felt that he put himself into the role. He played his role really well. However, the story was also very strong. I thought the story was very entertaining, and that was always a good thing in a movie. Also, the special effects were really good. The effects were excellent. The movie was very entertaining, and I felt that this movie was really something that should be seen by many people. I think that this movie was definitely one of the best movies of the year. I give it an 8 out of 10.

Drama with comedy in this comedy thriller with a twist. On the surface it seems that the father wants his daughter to find herself and is pressuring her to do that. What he fails to mention is that his daughter is taking pictures of the town she is visiting, and when she is done she wants to share the photos with her dad. The father is now trying to get his daughter to leave the country and he is a self-destructing alcoholic. This movie is a classic comedy and it is well done and well written. The casting is perfect and the writing is excellent. I love how they have a middle aged woman in the movie who does not know what she wants and does not know how to tell her father how she feels about him. The whole movie is a drama with a twist and has a nice ending. I give this movie an 8 out of 10. Recommended.

Film genre films are at the top of my list of movies to see. I have a movie in my collection called "Donnie Darko" which I have seen at least ten times, and my list continues to grow. I have not seen "Black Dynamite" but it would be interesting to see it. I find that I really enjoy more films that I have not seen. For example, "Fargo" had been on my list for years but I had never seen it, so now I have seen it. I am glad to say that "Black Dynamite" is a great film and I plan to see it more often. The main character, Darcy, was a woman who had no experience, no job, no friends. She was a nobody. It is not until she gets a job that she begins to understand that she is not that alone. She learns from some of her associates about the people who are different from her, who understand her and tell her that they do not think that she is a loser. In fact, they even like her. The most entertaining scene for me was when Darcy's boss, Arnold, had a customer who told him that he has too much to drink. He asked her what she would do if she had a customer like him, and she tells him that she would not show up and that she would not take a chance of getting into a fight. Arnold agrees to pay her the full amount. I will never forget that scene because I would be one of the "Loser's" in the future. The acting was excellent for this movie. I was very impressed with Paul Giamatti, who is always a pleasure to watch. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes black comedy, and is into sci-fi movies. I have never seen a movie like this before, and I look forward to more of these.

You see, at times, I feel that the more character-driven stories usually work better on the page. Not so with the Lovesick Manifesto. It's a great novel, and one that has really stuck with me. However, with screenwriter Todd Field's script, there's just too much time spent with not enough time spent with the characters. The characters, and the relationships between them, are just not developed enough, and thus, the story itself becomes more "basic" and less "flawless". For the most part, the movie is exciting and exciting, but I had trouble feeling any real connection to the characters, or to the story itself. There are some memorable and powerful moments, and I will certainly see the movie again, but this story is not one of them. *The Final Word:* If you want to know what it's like to be a single parent, or are single parent or have a single parent, then this is a great movie to check out. Otherwise, you should probably pass on this one. -PolarisDiB
