With more aerial shots of Thailand and its beautiful countryside its actually more of an advert for Thailand and Holidays than a movie. Its slow and full of stupid dialogue about penis size and sex and very little in the way of an actual story. Directors seem inordinately obsessed with sex these days - personally I am with Boy George on that one and would rather have a cuppa Earl Grey myself than watch simulated sex scenes in movies - I prefer the old days where a kiss was enough and disappear to the bedroom.
To me it just slows the movie down and in most instances does nothing for the story. This is not really like watching paint dry, its actually more tedious than that! All I see is a film school thesis movie that should have been failed and forgotten. Instead, the director's lust for Blake Lively led to a near pornographic experience that lacks any satisfaction.
Greetings again from the darkness. Director Marc Forster has crafted a career of making movies that are readily watchable, though for the most part, not especially memorable.
His latest falls short of those, but thanks to Blake Lively and some creative visuals, we remain interested enough. This is Ms. This time out she does an admirable job of carrying the film in spite of script flaws. It's co-written by Sean Conway and director Forster, and despite teasing some fascinating psychological aspects, we find ourselves constantly waiting for the movie to show us what we already know is about to happen.
Predictability is rarely an asset for a film, and here it acts as a ball and chain to the pacing. The first third of the film works to establish two things: what Gina's Lively daily life is like as a blind person, and the type of relationship she and her husband Jason Clarke have. We get an abundance of distorted light flashes to simulate what she has lived with since the car accident that took away her parents and her vision during childhood.
Gina's doctor Danny Huston performs a transplant which successfully restores her vision. The bulk of the story revolves around the changes that vision brings to her life and how the marriage begins disintegrating. The best message here is what happens to a relationship as the individuals change and evolve. Specifically in this case, the wife gains an entirely new perspective, while the husband longs for the days where she was dependent on him. At times it feels as if director Forster is working hard to create the look and feel of an experimental movie, rather than focusing on the story.
There are some interesting visuals provided by locations and camera angles, although the moody atmosphere never really clicks. Lively singing "Double Dutch" provides an ending that is both odd and mesmerizing in a strange way. We are reminded that evil and self-centeredness can take on many forms, though this film never quite packs the dramatic punch it should. This is a strange film as it is well acted with high production value and some superb locations but the characters have very few redeeming qualities and it ends up being a super depressing twisted dull story that falters at every act.
I saw it with an open mind and the cool artsy directing shots that are blurry to show life through a blind woman eyes are refreshing at first but get old quickly and hit you over the head.
Yes we realize she is blind but the audience is not and the story matters or at least provide more depth to the characters and story to make us sympathize with them. Instead the story goes in a very predictable and yet bizarre sexual direction and moves from a happy dependent marriage to suddenly she recovers her eyesight and wants to explore and be sexy and tie up her husband, watch peep shows and eventually have sex with the pool guy with a huge member.
As much as I like Blake Lively, one feels disconnected and un sympathetic for the main female character, and almost for both of these total depressing freaks. Blake's character could have gone in so many directions instead of this dark road alienating her husband Yes we realize the husband wants his co dependent blind wife back and even willing..
Love is Blind. And as a WOman with Eye Sight Yes the crazy Spanish guy that is far from funny in this film says it all. She falls for another guy. New WOman falls for Alpha male with large member and crazy loud sex or willing to punch any man to protect his woman - is her ideal partner for Ex Blind woman. It makes one think what really inspire the writer to write this twisted story Is there a deeper meaning that got lost in the editing room or did the writer really write something this terrible.
And the worst part is that i read it was done for 30 million and the production value is def on the screen It is still worth watching the film yet be prepared for a depressing drawn out movie. I rate it a 4 as a 5 is too high for the painful long arse boring depressing script with even worse ending possible. Almost was hoping the husband would hit a truck and be blinded.. I am so glad that I did not fool by the imdb credits again. Misleading and being very unfair to decent viewers. Director Mark Forster made a very good job by this extraordinary movie.
