Brilliantly compelling drama!

"I've always believed that a portrait captures a person far better than a photograph. It truly takes a human being to really see a human being."

Simply put, Monster's Ball is one hell of an outstanding movie. Marc Forster's direction is first-rate, the script is meticulous, and there's superb acting right down the line. The story conveyed by this hauntingly compelling masterpiece ca... read more

Could've been better...

I was really hoping that I would like this film but when I saw it, I was disappointed. I thought that the story was very dull and very slow. It was like it needed to be really good for me because it had an Oscar winning performance from an actress who has been in some rather crap films over the years like Catwoman. I had high expectations at first because when I read the story of a few websites, i... read more

El mayor mérito de esta película es no ser tan melodramática como pudo haber sido, al menos en tono. El director parece más interesado en demostrar que puede crear un drama que se sienta maduro que en cualquier otra cosa.

Description: The unflinching realism and searing performances of Monster's Ball are stunning in all the connotations of the word. Hank (Billy Bob Thornton) and Leticia (Halle Berry) inhabit stark, queasy realities of the contemporary South, he as a death row corrections officer and she as the soon-to-be widow of an inmate (Sean Combs) whose execut ...

"February 2 "I've always believed that a portrait captures a person far better than a photograph. It truly takes a human being to really see a human being." This was a very good movie. It was well-written, it tackled difficult subjects and for once Halle Berry delivers a good performance. It's not a masterpiece, but it's somewhat underrated considering that I rarely hear about this movie despite the fact that it won an Oscar. I do keep hearing about Halle Berry winning the Oscar, but not the "
