How about a thread for slagging off movies we didn’t like?
I’ll start with what I watched on DVD last night.
I know it’s been mentioned here before, but I couldn’t find it. I remembered people saying they liked this movie, which was one of the reasons I decided to watch it. Also it has a star-studded class, and I was quite intrigued by Virginia Wolfe from what I learnt about her in Women’s Studies class.
This movie was aptly named The Hours (and hours and hours). The filmmakers’ technique seems to have been to give the audience a first hand insight into the absolute tedium experienced by depressive women, by casting women well trained and practiced in portraying depressive neurotics, and having them share their depression and tedium with the viewer. I’m not sure if whether or not it is safe to say that my view is shared, because I was the only one watching it who managed to stay awake.
PS Whoever decided Julianne Moore was a good actor?
