We Need to Talk About Kevin

Parents who struggle with raising their kids will often make comments like "Man, if only each kid came with a manual..." But would a manual be of any use if your kid was born with the heart and soul of a young Michael Myers? We Need to Talk About Kevin is a brutal, cold-hearted motion picture, and that's all because of the brutal and cold-hearted kid it has for a title character. This isn't a stor... read more

In the pages of history, cases of murder within high schools and other social environments have appeared regularly on the news and in newspapers, but for a theme of film, it is rather rare. So, because We Need To Talk About Kevin involves a dangerously disturbed teenager, other segments of violence and a very vulgar use of language, it gives the audience the immediate impression that it is going t... read more

In We need to Talk About Kevin, Tilda Swinton delivers the best performance of her long career by portraying emotions nothing but unconventional. Swinton lent her image to a startled character, abandoned, lost by society and also, completely devoid of any influence on her son.

Early on you can see Kevin is not a sweet innocent child. With an optimistic father sire, Kevin’s bad beha... read more

My Movie Journal-2014 (57 movies items)

"Director: Lynne Ramsay Starring: Ezra Miller, Tilda Swinton, John C. Reilly My rating: 10/10 "Why would I not understand the context? I am the context." "There is no point. That's the point." "Eva: You don't look happy. Kevin: Have I ever?" WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT EZRA! I love him. This movie is awesome. Tilda was amazing and Ezra was perfect. He is really talented. The film topic is very interesting and simultaneously frightening. Terribly disquieting. "

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing some very good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. In the US, almost every year, you have a grown-up, and more and more often a teenager, who goes for a killing rampage (on the other hand, it also happened not so long ago in Norway, if I’m not mistaken). Anyway, it is an horrible concept and, like all horrible concepts, it can be the inspiration for some heartbreaking but still quite interesting movies. Personally, I thought that ‘Elephant’ was a great flick and this one was pretty good too. This time, they decided to focus on the mother of such a murderous child, above all on her life after the tragedy, and it definitely delivered some food for thought. Of course, you can complain that you never really get to know Kevin but that was obvi” read more

" viewed: May 19, 2014 So... it was definitely a good movie. He showed bluntly everything that I'm afraid of being a mother. I waited in suspense for a solution, yes, I had suspicions how it would end, but same end, in prison, a little disappointed me. Tilda was brilliant."

Movie Diary (58 movies items)

"Good movie. A disturbing insight into the sociopath adolescent that is capable of the harrowing high school massacres that mar modern America and the ramifications these events leave behind. There was a point where I felt the film left the kind of social realism it built up behind and stepped a little too far in terms of being slightly OTT but overall this is still a very powerful piece with great performances (particularly Tilda Swinton) and is certainly recommended. 8/10 "
