Am I Missing Something?

So I ended up checking this movie out because I'm in the CMBYN craze faze. Ie. I'm checking out some of Timothee and Arime's filmography

Since this one was on Netflix I thought I'd give it a try and I'm sort of conflicted. I really liked some of the things in this movie, like the whole teleportation that both Zac and Eva have, I like how dark this film gets (what with Daniel's actions towards his children), the relationship between Zac and Eva made me smile, Timothee's acting during emotional scenes were great, but that's about it

I really felt like I was missing something vital, something that would make or break this movie for me. For the whole of it I felt like I was in the dark and I constantly asked myself what the purpose of it was. The two characters don't feel like they grow or develop but we also never really get inside Daniel's (the father) head: why did he do the things he did, why was he afraid of this gift, why did he blame his children? There is no explanation for the teleportation or even what happens when Eva does this in front of others (were they surprised? is this kind of normal in this society? why them?)

If anything, it was interesting for me, but don't think I'd recommend it

This is a slow but very beautiful movie. If you only are in to action then this is nothing for you. But if you like movies that will challenge and dare your mind and if you not are afraid of something more deep than a couple of men punching each other, then this is a film for you.

The film will get you in a state of mind that will begin to think, to wonder. Will this be possible? Can a father be like that? Loving and still so demanding and ... cruel.

And then you realize that it's the way people, mostly men, dictates their women and children to live exactly as they want them to do. It also shows how hard it is to break free from a family bond. Hard even if you don't want to be a part of it, if you do want to go. You can't go, there is too much holding you back. Fear, love, obedience even respect holds you back from leaving although you don't want to be there.

You know what you have but you don't know what you will get.

For me the film was not about their ability to "jump". It was about the fear of something new, something you don't understand, the will to have everything as it always have been. Their ability was just the unknown in the world. The film for me was also about breaking free and leaving old habits behind, leaving (killing) the tyranny, the dictatorship and seeking the freedom.

I liked the film and I will remember it a long time - maybe see it again in a month or two.

Not Yi Yi (Edward Yang)

So it's okay. It's fine. It's a movie that was made, but not made well. There's no passion, no story, no style, nothing. It's a movie that proves this director can put a movie together, outside of Rich Hill. Autumn Durald does a great job with the cinematography, despite there clearly being more budgetary constraints than Palo Alto, most notably the oval bokeh and the obvious digital grain, from the upped-ISO.

The movie is bearable, it's watchable, but not interesting. The dialogue, however, is laughable, and the Tree of Life internal monologues are baffling. This movie is practically a series of events, albeit beautiful to look at and competently put together, with no real satisfying conclusion nor moral.

This movie doesn't deserve the critical panning it has from RottenTomatoes, it's one of the better movies of the year, which I guess isn't saying much.

Kiernan Shipka, and everyone really, look bored and brooding. They have nothing to work with, and when they do, it's executed laughably and obnoxiously. I have no doubt Shipka has acting chops, but this doesn't prove it, she mopes around with a vaguely confused face the whole movie.

Timothee Chalamet is the best actor in the movie, and he barely has anything to show, possibly because no one has any characterization besides "quiet, distant, scared." I hope he stops being type-casted as Tom Cooper, because even when he's given the opportunity to act in these movies, it's quickly cut short (in this, his screaming and clawing are drowned out by a glaring score, muting any actual skill required to show emotion or character struggle).

Hopefully Jeff Nichols' Midnight Special shows this movie up, I'm pretty disappointed. (If at any point you think I'm blindly "hating" on this movie, the very fact that I was even looking forward to a movie that wasn't advertised or talked about shows my initial interest.)
