This is easily one of the most obnoxious and worst movies of 2015. The only reason I watched this is because I was interested in seeing Juliette Binoche speaking english. BIG MISTAKE!
Juliette Binoche's performance is one of few good parts of this movie. Unfortunately, Kristen Stewart was an extremely prominent role in this movie. I went into this movie with an open mind hoping she might at least put in a good performance. NOPE. I did believe a sigle word she said. There was no point for me to completely believe in her performance whatsoever. STOP MUMBLING EVER SINGLE SCENE! It wasn't even done for the sake of comedy there was zero self-awareness.
Chloë is also in the movie. Not that much, but she's a very important character. And the character she plays is supposed to be a bratty mix between Lindsay Lohan and Miley Cyrus. And the interviews to show how crazy the character is has laugh tracks that were edited in horribly. The ques were so unnatural and they would react to things before they would even happen.
They then did a spoof of superhero films to kind of parody the genre and what I saw was SO embarrassing. All they did was paint the background white and dye the characters hair funny colors. What we are shown on screen is what some bad film student with 900 dollars could make. Yet, the main characters go to see this movie in theatres, and it's played off as some typical hollywood movie that would be generally well-received with 3-D glasses. And not like a terrible movie. It's like this director has no perception of reality.
There are other scenes where they talk about action movies and say "It's such an inferior genre". Well, if it's inferior and you suck at it, what does that make you? I have my own gripes and criticisms with superhero films, but you're seriously pretending that you pretentious movie isn't a million times worse? What are you criticising about that genre that can't be applied to your movie?
Your plot is contrived and non-sensical. The majority of the acting sucks. And, you're no where near skilled enough to imitate the genre you say is terrible. You have basically made a movie where you are worse than terrible. Also, The editing absolutely sucked.
WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED HERE!!
I'm so confused. Can't stop thinking about this film. Thoughtful, nice script, great actresses. Nice to see these complicated female characters unfold. Still confused about the ending and some editing choices (which made the film seem quite "cheap")
I don't really get the reason why this movie is so well rated by some people I know (besides Juliette Binoche's performance).
