This film has a vile texture as four menacing men laugh at her excessive docility. This was dreary and gets worse with breathtaking rapidity. There is indecorous conduct and everyone swears and has a frustrating lack of sociability. Also who designed the madhouse Anna lives in?
“Then I won’t choose.”
“Something weird is going on here man.”
“You have no idea what I’m like.”
“He was your friend, now he’s a doorstop.”
This was ineffective and intemperate. Mournful people are acrimoniously fixated on personal grievances. There are no melancholy consequences in this shouty big drama. There is overblown intensity in this Tracy Letts play. I don’t care about their over-analysed lives and preening self regard, alienation and angst. Julia Roberts, Chris Cooper and Benedict Cumberbatch prance around. Man tears fall and people are unconscionably operatically vicious to each other.
This was without merit and people have strident antagonism and are deliciously arrogant. This was an ineffective tale of disillusionment and a prickly uncooperative woman with a used face. This was a spectacularly misconceived tale of bitter desolation, misery and bad decisions. There is more acrimony and it was too much.
“Flat hot nothing.”
“The creepy character.”
“Then get your own beer.”
“My wife takes pills and I drink.”
“Your 5th puberty.”
“She’s old enough to exhibit character.”
“Forsaken big shot.”
“Who makes that decision?”
“That is wildly unfair.”
“Die after me.”
“Thank god we can’t tell the future, we’d never get out of bed.”
“This year’s man.”
“What’s that smell?”
Owen’s wife has haughty superiority. This was purposeless and has no discernable emotional life whatsoever. A ‘Suburban Shootout’ star pops up and there is an obvious twist. This was stupendously toxic and full of people with hairdresser mindsets. I felt terrible scorn for this film. There is mad parental protectiveness and the infinitely melancholy consequences thereof. There is steadfast belief and no earnest realism or naturalistic details.
