If you've seen the searingly dark and magnificent HARD CANDY, you may remember that there's a moment at which its protagonist, Hayley (a teenage girl who is about to carry out an atrociously savage act), wonders what would happen if she were caught by the authorities. She jokes that they wouldn't do much to her other than have her do some hours of community service, and she wryly comments that "Jo... read more

"Crazy is being miserable and walking around half asleep, numb, day after day after day. Crazy is pretending to be happy. Pretending that the way things are is the way they have to be for the rest of your bleeding life. All the potential, hope, all that joy, feeling, all that passion that life has sucked out of you. Reach out, grab a hold of it and snatch it back from that bloodsucking rabble."read more

The Beaver is a great and obvious metaphor that unfortunately it sustains even when its argument proves untenable, especially in its 1st act. The narrative begins with the routine of the central character in tatters in an irreversible situation, but behold the beaver's figure is eventually likely to be accepted. The conflicts that would be natural are temporarily ignored and become valid from the ... read more

A good movie

“Oh dear… Both Jodie Foster and Mel Gibson took a huge gamble with this project and, eventually, this gamble didn’t pay off, I’m afraid. I mean, I did like this flick but I think I’m in the minority and, on top of that, I have to admit it, the whole thing was hugely flawed. Still, I gave it some few extra points because it tackles depression, a subject you barely seen in the movies and there was some good stuff. Eventually, I think there were at least 3 major elements which bothered me. First of all, they never managed to focus on a specific tone. I mean, for a good while, it was a very black satirical comedy which was the best choice but then, they would switch to some middle-of-the-road family drama and this lack of consistency was rather disappointing. Then, it was rather ludicro” read more

"I'm sorry, but what the fuck? This film is warped. Seriously though, I liked it! Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, Anton Yelchin and my new favourite Jennifer Lawrence = good cast. Jodie Foster also directed! The story had a few little side-stories which I think were better than the actual main idea of a beaver puppet on a guy's hand that takes over him and forces him to "
