The weirdest film I've watched so far. It started really funny with the plain annoying Gary King, which is for once actually not a bad thing, the character is well-written and just fun.but then it had a crazy turn, This seems to be extremely stupid but it's just a straight fun. We are here for the laughs. The directing was great and the cast give an convincing, hilarious performance.
It's still damn weird, though.
City Island (2009)
This movie was literally a blast. I thought it touched an intriguing subject with a light humor. It makes you laugh about some of the bizzare situations, which is my favorite way of introducing an issue that might get a little bit too heavy in the verge of unbearable. It far from being a perfect movie and I don't care for its flaws because the brilliant way they lightened the problems made the whole movie for me. Great acting as well, some actors really surprised me by delivering a convincing performance. Some I haven't known much but I will work on it.
I am familiar with the book and I think they transformed the book plot parts into a stunning emotional scenes and the feeling it gave was chilling.
However, the book could give to us a deep double meaning story for a message, in the movie it looked like a plot holes. The blind had a negative portrayal but I believe this has an explanation the book would give and I'm pretty sure it has an idea behind it.
I would like to review the movie in two different sections-
The movie itself as the sequence of events and its structure (the structre terrific, in my opinion). In a superficial look. Spellbinding built-in. But it gets a little predictable and more like a love story, when will the man get the girl. though, it was still an intriguing tell.
And the second one, the deeper look, the ideas the director wants to introduce to his viewers. I believe it was quite mind-blowing. I care less for the storyline then I care for the incredible idea behind it. I thought the idea is how the world as we fimiliar with is a tale of our brain and it can be all changed if we are playing with it. so the whole universe you in might be a lie that your brain tells you constantly Which is crazy and it keeps messing with my head. Just brilliant.
In addition, the message I get (I can be crazy, though) is pretty much cheesy but still cute and remarkable ( it might all be a lie, but as long as you willing to live in it, It gets realistic and fulfilling.
