Mini Film Reviews Volume 10

Mrs Lowry & Son

A portrait of the artist L.S. Lowry and the relationship with his mother, who tries to dissuade him from pursuing his passion. Don’t get me wrong Timothy Spall and Vanessa Redgrave try their hardest and individual they are really good, overall the film is rather uneven and it not powerful or really hit you hard in this emotionless film. It is thinly premise like not enough story in this film.

American Sniper

Navy S.E.A.L sniper Chris Kyle’s pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and turns him into a legend. Back home with his family after four tours of duty, however, Chris finds that it is the war he can’t leave behind. This is well intentioned and a thoughtful film and the story is a good one, for me personally it doesn’t really have that impact as it not as memorable to compare with other Clint Eastwood film. Sienna Miller captivating as the wife as she is silently brilliant in her role.

The Peanut Butter Falcon

Zak a young man with Down Syndrome run away from a nursing home where he lives to chase his dream of becoming a professional wrestler, he also befriended a young man who named Tyler. Too be honest with you I thought I going to be in tears and I would connect to this film, but it wasn’t heart-warming and there is a lot of unnecessary violence in this film and rather uneven as well. The acting is absolutely amazing and especially the newcomer Zack Gottsagen and he is providing the laugh in the film and the supporting acting is certainly spot on.

Spirited Away

During her family’s move to the suburbs, a sullen 10-year-old girl wanders into a world ruled by gods, witches, and spirits, and where humans are changed into beasts. This is a near perfect film with heart and a sincere tale of someone imagination and like an Alice In Wonderland type of film, the visual is certainly out of this world and the cinematographer is gorgeous to look at. The only negative to this film it can be too weird and rather surreal at the same time, it still got the emotional heft and a beautiful story.

Motherless Brooklyn

In 1950s New York, a lonely private detective afflicted with Tourette’s Syndrome ventures to solve the murder of his mentor and only friend. I was totally surprise by how good this film is and I thought it was top notch with a really good story and the drama aspect of it, it is superb with a very clever plot in a whodunnit type of film and with a surprisingly result and it is very clever as well looking back over the film without being confusing at the same time. The acting is brilliant and it is generally moving with a beautiful ending.
