Don't listen to the critics

I swear, in this day and age, it seems like the critics look right past the quality films, and ignorantly try to simplify a film into a 1 sentence review. At the time of writing this, Rotten Tomatoes gave this a critic score of 10%. Don't listen to them. This movie isn't excellent, but it is enough to incite a spectrum of emotions in the viewer, and can very easily be considered a decent movie. It is mostly the SJW critics who view this film in a misogynistic light, and attribute the character development of Sidney Hall as the plights of a white (privileged) man. Most of the critics who reviewed this are just mindless snobs who are afraid to say they liked it out of fear that they will be alienated by their fellow critic colleagues. The movie was good. It had some confusing moments with the timeline, slighted development, and predictability, but overall it was a good movie. I personally trust the reviews on IMDB far more than I would trust Rotten Tomatoes. I will never fully understand the mindset of the critics over there. They sometimes will praise a mediocre movie, and bash good or great movie in a bandwagon type fashion. They are 1 of 3 things: a) they are being paid to leave biased reviews, b.) they have horrible taste in movies, or c.) each review is based on a centipede mentality where their opinion categorical agrees with the author prior. Whatever the case, Rotten Tomatoes is a fraud. Trust your peers with reviews, don't listen to the snobs.

The Vanishing of Sidney Hall

This film is, quite frankly; nearly a masterpiece. Don't trust the critics on this one, it's nowhere even close to being bad. Really, it contains some of the most darkly beautiful subject matter; in loss, love, tragedy, self-discovery, and recovery. Within each of its three subplots there is always a looming anxiety created by the film's atmosphere. Filled with literal and metaphorical darkness with a few rays of light and hope. The Vanishing of Sidney Hall isn't meant to be uplifting, nor is it. But it is a story worth telling in that its characters, (played excellently by the whole cast) its events, (again, told in a non-linear way) and its grim outcome serve as a tale that hits the nail on the head with the message that not everything in life will turn out the way it's presented. With awe-inspiring production value and locations, spectacular acting, beautiful camerawork, and a score that sticks in the head for a while, The Vanishing of Sidney Hall is certainly one to see.

Unexpectedly BEAUTIFUL

I knew nothing about this film prior to watching it at Sundance for its premiere. I never have high expectations for movies, so I was pleasantly surprised when I found myself laughing within minutes of the film starting. I have a short attention span and the only thing I watched this year that kept my attention and made me concentrate was The People v. O.J. Simpson, American Crime Story.

What I loved most about this film is that it isn't predictable, you had to piece the series of events together as the storyline evolved. I felt a roller coaster of emotions and towards the end found myself in tears.

Definitely worth seeing and I look forward to watching it again.
