I've been a bit dissatisfied with many films of late, but it looks like Kelly and I share similar tastes, so I'll check this one out.
I wish I'd read this review before I tried to sit through the film. It was the second-worst film I'd ever seen, behind the abysmal Riding in Cars with Boys. Dull, lifeless, painful, dreary doesn't seem to explain it well enough.
I imagine it's actually quite difficult to make a movie both simultaneously boring AND confusing, but Manchester by the Sea did it. That alone deserves some kind of award. I got through about 80% of it before switching it off.
Like I said, I wish I'd seen this review first. I want my 90 minutes back.
Not a single scene, in all its crayon box beauty, was believable. I had read other reviews that called it a melodrama but even then I was not prepared for how false this movie , supposedly delineating a woman's life (topic for another time-directors who supposedly make women's movies because we're such a distinct species ...remember Woody Allen?) and her guilt over, what, being mildly pissed that her husband had been bedding her friend all along and even though she knew that from the get.
I was also prepared for a bleak flick given the topic was the estrangement of a beloved daughter. But it was not believable so I simply didn't care. When it ended abruptly, I was just glad to go home to my warm house after sitting in a cold theater watching time pass.
Beautiful humanist movie; everything about a dealing with a sexual assault that Hollywood would not do.
Finished written and directed produced movie, rich and famous
Tommy Wiseau 1
Kelly Vance ZERO
You're a zaftig head.
Mad-libs with refrigerator magnets on the Soul train word scrambler would produce a better written piece.
7 monkeys on 7 typewriters wrote your review sucked.
Who wrote this review? Tommy's less talented brother?
Only when we know our past helps us embrace the future. Lets learn to love all of Gods creations, by all means love people first.
