Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
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.
