Director Sean Baker is 2 for 2 in making films that I find unbearable. I respect what TANGERINE is going for. A raw portrait about life in LA for trans sex workers on the street. But it was just too aggro. It's the cinematic equivalent of being screamed at for 90 minutes.
Robbie and Ejiofor deliver quality performances in this complexly emotional, crafty post-apocalyptic three way romance and hydro-electric innovation thriller. The title still doesn't make sense to me, but the movie is pretty good.
Finally a movie that combines young lesbian love, self harm and a passion for aviation. The first half of this movie is mesmerizing, alluring stuff. But as it pulls back it loses focus and crawls to a close.
Franco and Rogen have been better -- especially with This is the End -- but this is by no means a lesser effort. It's full of oddity and dick jokes, but it's also spewing a little bit of social truth. Not to be taken too seriously, but also worth a watch.
