A good movie

6 months, 4 weeks ago at Oct 22 9:14
I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but I have to admit that I was quite eager to see Felix van Groeningen’s first English-speaking directing effort. To be honest, even if it was definitely not bad at all, I still think they struggled to bring something new to the genre. Furthermore, I wish they gave more details on how Nic actually ended up in this position. Indeed, they spent... read more

Bukowski's epic/sordid poem is the best part of a film that advances nothing in trying toundestrand a plague, a little more comprehension, a little more of char in the leading (yeah Chalamet is a pretty boy)...

A good movie

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but I have to admit that I was quite eager to see Felix van Groeningen’s first English-speaking directing effort. To be honest, even if it was definitely not bad at all, I still think they struggled to bring something new to the genre. Furthermore, I wish they gave more details on how Nic actually ended up in this position. Indeed, they spent the whole duration showing that his father was a rather sweet guy with a stable lifestyle and household and that he really cared for his son. The only explanation might be that he might have felt somehow as an outcast following the divorce of his parents but it was not developed enough to really explain his craving. Anyway, the main focus of this movie was above all to show the devastating impact” read more

Mid-Year Oscars Predictions - 2018 Movies (10 movies items)

"Reasons for Prediction: I can see the academy loving a serious Steve Carell role. Timothy Chalamet is primed for an acting nomination, bringing light to a best picture nom. It's based on two critically successful books, and directed by Felix Van Groeningen, who seems to be in the correct trajectory with a best director and best picture nomination. Results: NOT Nominated for Best Picture ZERO Wins ZERO Nominations "

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- January 2019 (35 movies items)

" Amazon Prime- 2hrs. First Viewing Despite some heartbreaking, compelling performances and nuanced filmmaking, Beautiful Boy is too emotionally distance and withdrawn to truly sell the subject matter. Instead of being right there with the characters and their pain, it feels like there's always a wall there; the characters just aren't defined enough for the audience to connect. Not quite ciphers for the effects of drug use on both addicts and their loved ones, but not full-bodied either. That sai"
