Brilliantly compelling drama!

"I've always believed that a portrait captures a person far better than a photograph. It truly takes a human being to really see a human being."

Simply put, Monster's Ball is one hell of an outstanding movie. Marc Forster's direction is first-rate, the script is meticulous, and there's superb acting right down the line. The story conveyed by this hauntingly compelling masterpiece ca... read more

Could've been better...

I was really hoping that I would like this film but when I saw it, I was disappointed. I thought that the story was very dull and very slow. It was like it needed to be really good for me because it had an Oscar winning performance from an actress who has been in some rather crap films over the years like Catwoman. I had high expectations at first because when I read the story of a few websites, i... read more

El mayor mérito de esta película es no ser tan melodramática como pudo haber sido, al menos en tono. El director parece más interesado en demostrar que puede crear un drama que se sienta maduro que en cualquier otra cosa.

Description: The unflinching realism and searing performances of Monster's Ball are stunning in all the connotations of the word. Hank (Billy Bob Thornton) and Leticia (Halle Berry) inhabit stark, queasy realities of the contemporary South, he as a death row corrections officer and she as the soon-to-be widow of an inmate (Sean Combs) whose execution Hank helps conduct. In the aftermath of the execution, both lose their children to tragic deaths and they form an unlikely bond. In the hands of lesser participants, the fateful plot might strain credibility and seem tailored to allow for liberal sermonizing about the obvious wrongs of our legal ... (more)

" Notes: To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Anyway, I think that Marc Foster is or, a least, was a very interesting director and, if I recall it correctly, it is the first movie I have seen directed by him. Unfortunately, his last directing efforts have been rather underwhelming which is too bad because, before that, his track-record was really impressive. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, I thought it was a gr"

Racism - Movies (32 movies items)

" Halle Berry as Leticia Musgrove and Billy Bob Thornton as Hank Grotowski Leticia stops by Hank's home with a present for him, but he is not there. She meets Buck (Hank’s father), who insults her and implies that Hank is only involved with her because he enjoys sex with black women. Leticia, affected by the remarks, refuses to interact with Hank. After Hank is made aware of Buck's actions, he forces his father out of the house and into a nursing home. (Wikipedia)"
