REVIEW OF THE WEEK

If you feel like some light hearted funny comedic drama this is a good film to start with.

Probably the most laughs I’ve heard during a Noah Baumbach film EVER. This film is funny. Like laugh out loud. I would take my mum to this film and that is saying a lot because she only really likes weird drama’s and things with Colin Firth.

Lets Start with the Cast:

Ben Stiller plays the ageing documentarian who has been working on what sounds like the most boring documentary I’ve ever heard of for over 10 years. Also look at him wearing a fedora…

Naomi Watts: All I can say is please watch this clip of her dancing, that is all. Bless you Naomi.



Adam Driver: Possibly plays the same character in everything?? Still always very charismatic and a bit of cheeky little shit in this movie.

*Watch for his bad hair scenes #toomany*



Amanda Seyfried: Boring.



Dree Hemingway: Probs my fav character…even though her role is small she jumps around like a maniac and is very entertaining.



Maria Dizzi and Adam Horovitz (Beastie Boys) play the Baby CRAZY best friends of Stiller + Watts. They play what I feel like every new parent is like = insane, in love and sleep deprived.



Favourite scene: When they all visit a shaman’s house to drink hallucinogenic crap and vomit up their demons whilst getting extremely HIGH. = most people’s weekend

Overral not Baumbach’s best film… the plot does get a bit lost at a few points, but still worth a watch.

3/5

MOMMY

So I finally saw this yesterday and all I can say is WOW.

Now lets just say this movie obviously isn’t for everyone, like the dude sitting next to me, who when the movie finished said  “THAT WAS THE WORST FUCKING MOVIE I’VE EVER SEEN”… anyways.

The Plot:

 The film stars Anne Dorval as Diane Després, a widowed mother who is overwhelmed by the difficulty of raising her troubled, sometimes violent son Steve (Antoine Olivier Pilon) as a single parent. Després then begins to receive assistance and support from her mysterious new neighbour Kyla (Suzanne Clément).

Let’s start with the cast.

Antoine-Olivier Pilon who plays “Steve” is truly Flawless and my teen dream in this role. I mean look how good he can blow a bubble.

Anne Dorval aka Steve’s mum Diane “Die” Després is one helluva sassy bitch with an exotic wardrobe to match *Shout outs to the wardrobe dept* and yes is her hair a wig?? idk?

Suzanne Clément plays the shy conservative neighbor “Kyla” with a speech impediment who just doesn’t know what the hell she is getting herself into, but always has perfect hair!

Now lets talk about the soundtrack! So pretty on point minus a few very questionable songs…. please Google for yourself.

Cinematographer André Turpin is on the $$ with the camera work for this film, sometimes so on point and beautiful that I could have cried (didn’t).

Director/Writer/Producer/Editor/Prodigy Xavier Dolan has also truly out done himself this time and there is a reason why “Mommy” won a gazillion awards last year.


So to sum up everything… go and see this movie if you want to feel something real. Because this movie will leave you feeling shocked,sad,speechless and amazed both during and after the film has finished.

Lbh it’s worth 138 minutes of your time and $$

4.5/5
