(Mini Review) Closer

This is actually quite a hard review to write as several parts of the film remind me a bit too much of 'The Life of Angus', which if you see the film is not necessarily a good thing. It is a gritty 'romantic' film which is a lot more realistic (or at least in Angus-world) than many celluoid romantic ventures. I'd also imagine it pushes the boundaries of what is 'acceptable' language for many filmgoers as the central theme is definetly sex. Whilst you don't get to actually see any sex (which would be why it's certificate 15 and not 18) there's plenty of 'dirty talk' and other unsavoury distractions which would put off the 'morals' in the audience. Luckily my audience consisted of four people (including me) but that was largely because it was so early on a Saturday morning.

Clive Owen, Jude Law, Julia Roberts and the delictable Natalie Portman star. All do a commendable job but I must say there are times when Jude Law irritates me and Clive Owen's acting seems to let his character down. Julia Roberts and Natalie Portman on the other hand are pretty good throughout.

I may be able to add more about this film later but at present I'm not sure what to say. I enjoyed the film but I didn't think it was great and I'm not sure who I'd reccommend it too. Hmmm.....  School Report: C+

Also, why do I seemt o have a thing about girls with pink hair??? I first discovered this when I saw Lost in Translation and it's just been reconfirmed with this film! Christ, Blue nipples the other day, pink hair today!!!!! I think I should get out more :D
