Haha yes! I wanted to make a spoiler thread just to give people a place to shit on Paul Dano.
Any way, I figured I would hate this film (and again, as I wrote somewhere else, this movie is definitely super shallow and pretty basic, which falls right in line with Incendies), but I thought it was watchable enough because at least visually it looked pretty good and Jake is pretty fun to watch I mean with his hair slicked back he look like Rick Pitino.
This film felt a lot like Gone Baby Gone to me, which was also kind of watchable but ultimately unfulfilling. If I were to toy around with the idea of writing a review for this I would compare it to masturbation or hiring a prostitute for sex or something. For the song lyric title I would most definitely use "They all fall there so perfectly, it all seems so well timed" because the divergent perspectives allowed information to be given out in such a way that I always felt five steps ahead of each character so no twists really surprised me or anything, they were textbook like Beavermoose said.
I discovered that guy in the preacher's basement was the crazy lady's husband at first hint of it because everything kind of had to connect. But yeah, thematically it gets mucky and dicey as well, which is a bummer. So yeah, it's not good outside of what is happening with the camera, and even that doesn't really serve much. So it didn't piss me off or anything, but yeah it was definitely bad on an objective level.
EDIT: I guess I was easier on this film, despite recognizing its many shortcomings, because of what it represents. Along with the release of GTA earlier in the week and I guess that new Drake thing now (though music works differently than film and video games, TV does as well, but not on basic networks) it was kind of the film to kick off Oscar season and fall movie season or whatever. So even though that generally means me watching a number of films I will hate because they are similar to the type of film this is and are shallow and hollow, it's also kind of reinvigorating because it kind of means many of the other bigger films I am actually anticipating rather than just being obliged to watch or curiously interested in are starting to pop up in theaters. So yeah. I reckon Rush will probably see FLY back in top form though, unless it's good, who knows that is a possibility I guess, little faith after Frost/Nixon.
