Complete list. :-(
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the meaning of love, joy, honesty, loyalty and faith has changed and the glorious holy love of the age of innocence has been replaced by the kind of love that is more carnal, selfish and the nature of our time doesn’t…
"What were you so sad about?"
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…
This is the scariest film I've seen recently.
"What were you so sad about?"
all these people are terrible
i felt uncomfortable for the majority of this movie
This is a smart film that knifes its way through characters with razor sharp dialog. It's pretty obvious the film's plot was developed for the stage before it made it to the big screen.
There are many films that explore intimacy, lying, infidelity and other difficulties that burden relationships, but Closer does it with a wounding honesty. If you like your films smart and brutal, check this one out. Don't be put off by the beauty of its stars. They are all made pretty ugly in this picture.
natalie portman and jude law in a movie together? sign me the fuck up!
I give it one and a half stars for the performances. Other than that the plot was awful, the characters weren't even remotely likeable, not a single sensible point was made throughout the whole film and it was generally one of those movies in which you think the only solution to the characters' problems would be to set them all on fire and let them burn along with their universe. Also, it was full of terrible cliches and it turned out to be spectuacularly predictable right to the very end.
"The exhibition is a lie,it's a bunch of sad strangers photographed beautifully, but the people in the photos are sad and alone, but the picture makes the world seems so beautiful,so it's a lie and everyone is a big fan of lie"
I love this movie so much but hate the characters (except Alice)in it as well. It's so depressing, that love ,is so depressing in it. This movie tells the bloody ugly throat-cutting truths that we already know but would hardly face in love life. Alice (Portman)is actually my favorite (less hate) character in it because she appears dependent, she loves intensely while when she leaves a man ,she did it in a classy way. I wondered if she…
me: i have to watch more movies
me: *watches the same ones*
Recently, I've become aware that certain films are able to transcend the medium by being completely self-assured in their atmospheres…
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
