"Cold Souls" While living without a soul isn't quite as great as advertised... finding that someone is enjoying your soul more then you ever did can be unsettling. A very quiet and subdued movie. There has been some mention about it being a scathing critique on consumerism (partially true) I found the film to be far more heartfelt and well... warm :)

Paul Giamatti ganhou o público dos Festivais depois de sua participação em Sideways que entre outros, conquistou no Oscar e BAFTA, prêmios de melhor roteiro adaptado. Firmou sua popularidade com os cinéfilos após protagonizar o capcioso “Lady in the Water” de M. Night Shyamalan em 2006, e parece ter gostado da experiência.

Agora, estrelando (outra) comédia metafísica, o... read more

Description: In response to shiny, bigger, better American consumerism comes Cold Souls, a metaphysical comedy in which souls can be extracted and traded as commodities. Balancing on a tightrope between deadpan humor and pathos, and between reality and fantasy, the film presents Paul Giamatti as himself, agonizing over his interpretation of Uncle Vanya. Paralyzed with anxiety, he stumbles upon a solution via a New Yorker article about a high-tech company promising to alleviate suffering by deep-freezing souls. Giamatti enlists their services, intending to reinstate his soul once he survives the performance. But complications ensue when a mys ... (more)

" DVD- 1hr. 41min. First Viewing Cold Souls has several strong moments, but the story really never catches fire. There are a few moments of funny, quirky storytelling, but the film oddly opts for a more somber tone (they may have been going for melancholy, but it came off somber to me), often suffocating any possible humor.
