I watched Clean last night. It stars Maggie Cheung as Emily, a singer trying to put the pieces of her life back together after her underachieving musician husband OD's on heroin she bought. She must deal with her in-laws (played by Nick Nolte and Martha Henry), to whom the court has awarded temporary custody of her son Jay. Emily vows to clean her life up so that she can get Jay back, but she struggles to find a job she can tolerate and a place where she feels like she really belongs.

What struck me most about this movie was its quietness. You'd think that a movie about a musician would be filled with music and loud places, but Emily always seems to find herself on the outside looking in. The movie was also beautifully filmed, filled with plenty of vibrant colors, which perfectly contrast the darkness of the subject matter.

Nick Nolte gives an excellent performance. I love how well he plays characters who are always about five minutes from falling apart. Maggie Cheung was very good, too, moving from a bitchy Yoko Ono type character early in the movie to a character I really cared about. The pacing was a bit slow, but overall, this was a very good movie.

8/10

The Departed. Great dialogue, intriguing story and well paced with a twist or two at the end, and the cast in top form.
DiCaprio proves he can lead a movie, and stands up very well against J. Nicholson (used to be De Niro in these type of roles in a Scorsese movie). Next to those two, the stand out and the gem of the movie is Mark Wahlberg. Baldwin's character is a little to similar to Wahlberg's and Martin Sheen is good too. I'm forgetting Matt Damon and I liked the woman connecting the both moles.

Zodiac

7 or 8 /10

A little long, a little slow towards the middle, but it was very good and I was definitely interested in the story. I didn't know anything about the Zodiac killer or the case going into the movie.

Nice to see Anthony Edwards getting some work.

I just got back from seeing this. It was really well-acted, and long, as you say. More of a psychological thriller than a blood & guts display...I liked that about it.

The only bit of violence that really bothered me (I had to turn away) was with the couple by the lake.

I'm used to gun violence in movies, but without spoiling anything, I'm not used to seeing that specific sort of murder on screen.

inconvenient truth- really good, and so concerning/shocking that i can't even brush it off as "haha that bitter al gore. ha" after the fact, not even a little.

triplets of belleville- one of the most bizarre movies i think i've ever seen.

godfather- first time i've seen this, fucking love this movie, i've already watched it a few times. so many good scenes...

I didn't see Godfather I or II until only a year or so ago. I was so pleased that they did indeed live up to all they hype I'd heard about them for so many years.

I know, it really was just as good as people kept telling me. deep- I haven't seen godfather II yet but I want to get around to it this week definitely.

I just saw Running With Scissors (God bless Netflix ). I was expecting a goofy, quirky comedy, which it was to an extent, but it was much darker than the trailers made it look. Some really touching parts, and good acting throughout. I'd watch it again.

Also saw Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Fun action flick. Brangelina definitely have the onscreen chemistry to match the offscreen. Angelina ain't too bad on the eyes, either.

That actually bothered me, as well.

*SPOILER AHEAD*

Not because of the graphic nature (I've seen much worse), but because the scene was so real emotionally, with the couple, and how they tried to reason with the killer using humor, etc. It was really sad...you get the sense the couple were also very much in love

I saw The Departed recently. Great movie! Jack, Leo, Damon, Wahlberg and Martin Sheen are among many who put on a great performance. Mark Wahlberg was really cool!

I have a confession to make: I actually saw two movies tonight...the other was The Astronaut Farmer.

I'm a sucker for anything space-related, but this was more movie-of-the-week material than a major Hollywood release. My dreams have better scripts. I'm sure kids would like it, but overall, a definite renter.

5/10
