Wordiezett So much average
Beanbioca As Good As It Gets
FuzzyTagz If the ambition is to provide two hours of instantly forgettable, popcorn-munching escapism, it succeeds.
Bea Swanson This film is so real. It treats its characters with so much care and sensitivity.
bestvisions When a preview begins with "From acclaimed director...", it sets itself up for high expectations. When the next two words are "Sofia Coppola", most people's reaction would rightfully be "huh?".This "acclaimed director" is also the "acclaimed screenwriter" of this cinematic disaster. The screenplay is horrendous. The dialogue is strained and minimal. Characters are not developed. I found myself pitying Kidman and Farrell for having to report to work for such an inept director. Coppola evidently feels that suspense is built by endless shots of trees and the house in mist. Her overuse of this amateur device made me think that at any moment a commercial voice-over would declare "Virginia is For Lovers". And in true Coppola cliche fashion, so many scenes are so weakly illuminated. Straining to see whatever was happening, I actually screamed at my TV, "light the damn scene!".Other than skipping this movie, my advice to Coppola is to get out of the business. You're a disgrace to screenwriters and directors who would have done far better than you with this material. And stop believing your own hype.
lizzfizz Nothing happens, the film doesn't do anything daring or try to innovate, and i couldn't wait to get out of the theater. what a waste of money and of my time.
Pjtaylor-96-138044 'The Beguiled (2017)' is a thriller which isn't actually all that thrilling. This remake of the Eastwood/ Siegel classic removes much of the gritty edge and tension while retaining the same basic story and structure, a move which ends up neutering the narrative a significant amount and actually makes the entire affair seem rather pointless, to an extent. That's not to say it's terrible or even bad, in fact it passes the time and is both directed and acted with a subtle yet significant passion mixed with a steady professionalism. It's never dull but it's also never exciting, either. The events are depicted in a calculated manner and the piece is devoid of almost any emotion. The ending also frustratingly lacks any real resolution, other than the obvious way it brings the plot to a close. 6/10
jopone Great storyline and sublime acting but horribly irritating light.!!
