Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur, A science-fiction premise spoilers-ish first-come event! Of clones bred for the express purpose of harvesting organs is treated on a small scale, humanized Mark Romanek adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel (unread by me). In fact, the history of the union between Kathy (Carey Mulligan), Tommy (Andrew Garfield) and Ruth (Keira Knightley), three clones and grow together, it is so intimate and human scale, which sometimes wanders in generic boarding school love-triangulation, with intelligent sensitivity Kathy juxtaposed with the more opportunistic, Ruth dominant struggle in silence for the great heart of lovable misfit Tommy. Carey Mulligan has enough looks pensive, sad-eyed face in developing their own proprietary Mulligan (apply directly to rain streaked glass!), Which, I must say, it is preferable to Elijah Wood’s face and match perfectly with Isobel Meikle-Small, who plays the younger version of Kathy. Both actresses intelligence ‘sad invited to loads of empathy, and even Garfield (the man who would be Spidey) Tommy chooses to play as if it were to fall or collapse in a heap of spare parts at any time, all three adult use guy wires to achieve a dynamic that affects them.

But it is an impersonal, too, giving yourself over to the characters in the development of such rigidly defined roles difficult. No doubt some of these restrictions are intentional, and sometimes used for the benefit of the film. Romanek brings together some charming scenes of awkward discovery, when Tommy catches Kathy browsing prn magazines, which has a strong connection, unexpected for a later scene where the trio of partners through an office window in one of his original models possible. It is less successful in uniting the entire history of several periods: time jumps sewn together for voice-overs are mostly redundant tile pure adaptation. For all the tranquility of the history and subtle touches, can not suppress the quiet simplicity of the incident saying. Romanek and screenwriter Alex Garland to create a better poetry when not try to read to us.

City: Ben Affleck Gone Baby Gone is a terrible drama with just a shred as director of some as far as some camera placement and cutting into bits of suspense, so it is not difficult for me to imagine that is intensified gifts to the city, another tour of the dark alleys of the working class of Boston. This seems a little bigger and less character-driven left, with Ben Affleck and Jon Hamm doing Niro / Pacino as heat, robbing banks and trying to catch bank robbers, respectively, while women with varying degrees of patience waiting in the wings.

Easy R: Above all, time has made it easier for me to justify my love with Emma Stone (Superbad July) as it reached the appropriate age to crush [22 November. -Ed.] And continued to demonstrate sympathy and comic timing in films like Zombieland and The House Bunny. But it does not help my case when she is still playing a high school kid in Easy A, really, even with that sxy voice, hoarse, she is playing someone at least a little younger than Jules in Superbad more than three years after the movie came out. Early reviews of the Hawthorne-riffs Easy to make it sound like a possible addition to the canon of brilliant teenage Hollywood movies that are also good: Mean Girls, Bring It On, Clueless and all offer a degree of fantasy no longer textures, just to put an unfair example, Say Anything, but they are all fun and intelligent self-conscious and simply. I hope that’s the case, too. Casting Amanda Bynes (another actress who soon notched nearly a decade as a teenager) as a villain is a kind of inspiration, but his game a popular boy Christian self-righteousness, do not know, is that really how things work in California schools? Pious girls, semi-popular home chase sxy redheads to have sex?

Catfish: I do not know what this film is that I do not know what this film is that I do not know what this movie is about please do not tell me until after you have seen! I hear it’s a documentary about a Facebook friendship that gives a twist to the sweet Jesus I know too much. I’ll keep reviewing Henry Stewart then I saw it. advice [Good for you all, if that is your intention as well. -Ed.]

Diablo: I feel like the thing about OMG I saw the trailer for Diablo to packed halls and the public began to laugh / boos / throw things when the name of M. Night Shyamalan was made a very quick route audience catharsis maverick-sufficiency and meme script. After a few weeks, it felt more like a signal that any number of lines of laughter comedy trailer. Look, I’m not saying that Shyamalan has not been a major disappointment in recent years. I did not even see the legend of Aang, and if you had told me after Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs that some day release a fantasy film, action would not mind seeing in theaters, well, I become even sadder than me, when in fact happened. But in a world where “a Michael Bay film” can gross 400 million, I’m not so sure I should be laughing about a guy who actually did some good movies. Moreoever, Shyamalan does not actually direct the Devil, one of three horror movies labeled “Night Chronicles”, which came up with a hook of the story and gave it to young filmmakers to play. The idea of “Twilight Zone” and strangers trapped in an elevator and you can be, you know, what they call the Devilbender, is promising, since it sounds like the kind of deliberate thrillers, based on characters from Shyamalan used to make. But so did “The Happening” and even that film screened for critics, I guess it’s going to Diablo.

Jack Goes Boating: If Philip Seymour Hoffman impressions were already kind of become a thing (Jason Sudeikis has a rather large one), this is the film that launched them into the national consciousness, if the national consciousness, even a little aware adaptation directed by Hoffman, Hoffman-starring in a play called Jack Goes Boating.
