Why would you take the memory of such a nice and well thought out story like this TV series had and dilute it down to a cheap knock off copy. I now hear they're going to make a second installment, again I ask why, is there still some life left in this franchise that needs to be crushed?
You would think that with Steven Soderbergh making a return to intimate storytelling he would give us some enlightenment with a smile or even a tear along the way. What I didn't expect was to be put to sleep. I can not tell you why this film was made, other than Mr.Sonderbergh has a infatuation on Ms. Grey, "the porn actress", or maybe it's that male thing of finding a heat of gold in the fallen woman, but what he fails to recognize is that to pick someone up they have to fall first and Ms.Grey enjoys her porn career and has said so many times, and judging from her acting in this film,she should, I'm sad to say, return to it.
Let me start by saying that I am not a fan of J-C films,but having said this, I must now eat those words, because this is one of the most heartfelt and sincere films I've seen in a long time. This story re-tells all of us something we've all forgotten "don't judge a book by it's cover" and that every moment spent on this earth is far greater than what might be on the otherside and that life is too wonderful to waste. I highly recommend this film to everyone...
Better than most, not as good as others. A good scary, if somewhat predictable ending. The 28 days duo is much better, but fire up the popcorn anyways for a easy watch.
With "No Country for old Men" and "There will be Blood" sweeping the awards, this movie seemed like a after thought for the votes. In all fairness to the latter film, I've yet to sit down and watch this over hyped drama, but having watched "No Country", I can honestly say to the people who made "The Assassination of Jesse James..", you was robbed !!! The Acting,Composition,Music,and Direction is really well done. There is not a weak frame in the film, and at two and a half hours in running time, that is a amazing feat in itself.Plus how difficult it must have been to tell a story that everyone knows the ending and keep it interesting. So my advice to anyone who has sat through "No Country"in all fairness to this film,it's a good film, quite good in fact, take some time, without interuptions, and enjoy a really beautiful piece of movie making.The perfect balance of the two main players in this drama,is a joy to behold. The title says it all in so many ways.Enjoy
