"Director of Photography: Andrew Dunn A lot of what cinematographers do has a greater meaning than the shot itself. This shot is of course only of value within the context of the storytelling. It reflects her situation. The apartment is a prison and her life is a prison and within that is this prison, this cauldron of bubbling mess. We were getting ready to move off that set and we knew we needed an actual storytelling point. It’s absolutely imperative that you get these little mome"

""Her name is Mongo." Oh Precious, why can't you be a good movie? The actors are fantastic. Every single one of them. Everything else, however, is just terrible. Precious really approaches Troma-like qualities in how over-the-top it goes in depicting these events. I understand that stuff like this can happen and be everyday life for some people. But I strongly also feel that these things are so utterly extreme that you really have to make me as a viewer give a damn about them. I won't go in th"

Movie Diary - 2010 (38 movies items)

" As expected this movie was incredibly sad, all the actors did an amazing job it all seemed so honest and real. Even with everything against her Precious was always able to look up, trying to find a way to make things better, which I found endearing. I'm not sure if I'd like this movie as much the second time around just because it may not be as emotional, but it was definitely worth the watch."

Unpleasant and unsatisfying

“"Sometimes I wish I was dead. I'll be okay, I guess, 'cause I'm lookin' up. Lookin' for something to fall..."

A raw, confronting depiction of the horrors of black poverty in America, Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire is drawing a distinctly mixed response. To be fair, the detractors (like the controversial Armond White, who called it "a carnival of black degradation" but proceeded to use Norbit, Meet Dave and Little Man as examples of "excellent recent films with black themes") do seem to be in the minority considering the Oscar nominations, the Sundance awards, dozens of positive reviews and the official sanction of Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry. But, with that said, I personally believe it's important to listen to both sides, because Precious - although powerful a” read more

"Candidato a Top 10 de 2010 Com um estilo bem Bergmaniano, Preciosa, é uma obra que merece atenção. Com atuações magníficas, o filme conta a história de Precious, uma jovem negra que mora no Harlem, em Nova York, com uma vida dura, tenta como pode conseguir uma vida melhor para si e para suas duas filhas (uma delas com síndrome de down). Duro como poucos, e sem nem passar perto de ser um dramalhão, o filme ainda deixa uma mensagem positiva. Muito bem feito, bem dirigido e bem atuado"

You are just a piece of shit.

“Sad, touching, very intelligent. Precious is a movie that shocks you from the plot until the end of it. Full of amazing performances, big and hard moments it is not a sad movie but a movie about hope, a movie that can show that even with so many bad things around you things can be okay. It is an amazing story about a strong girl, and obsviously, it is a very strong movie. One of the best of 2009.” read more
