"Pick a side. We're at war."
Seriously. Especially down at the D+ range. That film can't be worthy of that kind of nuanced grade!
Actually, I would argue that the nuance for Confessions is one of the most warranted in that middle territory. There is not a lot to like about the film, aside from the larger concept that is tried to be addressed before the film devolves into generic romantic comedy territory, but there's one wide shot towards the end that is absolutely beautiful and one of the most visually appealing shots of the year. Combine that with the mostly unoffensive exterior and you are given a bad film either way, but one that has very few redeeming qualities as a generic rom-com that would have been bad even if the basic premise was fine tuned, or one that could have been great but was written poorly, as a piece on consumerism commentary. At the end of the year I'll settle on most of the A films, probably. Likely the B ones as well. Grades are kind of dumb, I just put them up there for something more tangible than 4.82347632864512738956237985612395.
