Week 23: Contemporary Performer: Gael García Bernal Week
This entire film felt terribly inauthentic to me, from the story to the character beats. The characters didn't feel real and they behaved to me either completely unrealistically or in a believable, but uninspired way, as if it was the first thought that came into the screenwriters head. Gyllenhaal came off as extremely grating to me, and the movie might have succeeded a little more if she managed to conjure any kind of sympathy for her character at all, even if just in the beginning of the movie.
