If you believe in love at first sight, you never stop looking.
Set in contemporary London, a story of passion, drama, love, and abandonment involving four strangers--their chance meetings, instant attractions and casual betrayals.
This might actually be the most brutally honest and unapologetic film I have ever seen. The dialogues are sharp as knife and they just cut through you. It is true that the truth sometimes hurts. When the truth is bitter and something that we do not want to know, it hurts like fucking hell.
I must admit that this is not a film which everyone would like. Films everyone likes would be average, crowd pleasers. That is why everyone likes it. But there are love hate films like these, where the amount of liking that some have would almost dwindle the amount of liking that the entire audience has for a film which looks good to everybody.
I loved it…
In which that monotonous fog horn turns all sour, Julia Roberts isn't annoying, Jude Law embraces his inner twatness with great success and Natalie Portman outacts the lot of them.
It's bitter, bleak and cynical. In short, my idea of a perfect Valentine's Day film.
This movie had me at that very first scene. Natalie gracefully sweeping through the London with her blue hair while Damien Rice sings "I can't take my eyes off of you". This movie is a tough blow to a romantic soul. Thankfully, I'm a realist and a somewhat depressive so it played out in the most delightfully gritty, raw, and painful way.
There have been countless movies about the nature of human relationships but few of them has been as skeptic and cynical as Closer. Mike Nichol’s movie digs deep into the nature of attachment and closeness and tries to find an answer to a question which seems unanswerable: Why should we suffer so much when we love someone else? Aren’t we supposed to enjoy love?
Closer shows that in the 21st century the meaning of love, joy, honesty, loyalty and faith has changed and the glorious holy love of the age of innocence has been replaced by the kind of love that is more carnal, selfish and the nature of our time doesn’t…
Jude Law, Natalie Portman, Clive Owen and Julia Robert. Two intersecting love triangles. Each of them on their A Game. Closer. These are some seriously sexy motherfuckers. Thanks to this film, Jude Law takes a place on my illustrious list of man crushes, whilst Portman, who I’ve thus far only loved in one other film besides this one (Léon), only affirms her status. Closer brings some of the finest acting (ever) to the screen and has been criminally underrated therefore, even though it secured two Oscar nominations. The script stems from a play and this is noticeable, but it’s one of the few occasions where this forms absolutely no problem. The script is actually near flawless. Delivering lines like “Lying…

how brutal how beautiful
Natalie Portman is a living goddess
One of my favorites!
Love how brutally honest and unapologetic this film is. The dialogue is amazing! Each character is flawed and unlikeable and they known it!
Is it bad that I was fascinated as each of them destroyed each other with spite and betrayal?
Natalie Portman fuckin slay me
Dreary mostly-British people in Britain have dreary, interconnected relationships, talk dirty a lot, and mostly just make me hate all of them.
Other than Natalie Portman as a stripper in a hot-pink wig, which is why I watched this in the first place, and Julia Robert's character's camera gear, which I want, I just didn't find any of this interesting.
Una película de terror.
This is the scariest film I've seen recently.
Complete list. :-(
movies I enjoy watching over and over again!
