Naomi Watts

Siraj Syed reviews Shut In: Stephen was a happy shut-in, until Tom had to butt-in

Walk-in, run-in, let-in, give-in, turn-in, move-in, sit-in...now comes shut-in. “A shut-in is a person who, due to physical, mental and/or emotional reasons, is not able to leave his or her home. These conditions can cause a person to feel lonely, isolated, sad and cut off from the rest of the world. Sometimes, they do not have family and friends available to visit and spend time with them. They often lack any kind of companionship.” Shut In, the movie, is a generic psychological t...

Demolition, Review: Shun

Demolition, Review: Shun If ever there was a practical example of ‘deconstruction for the sake of reconstruction’ being taken too literally, here is one. Our protagonist, a tormented and meandering soul, cannot cope with the loss of his wife, which tragedy has benumbed him. So, he remembers what his father-in-law once said, that in order to rebuild something, you have to demolish it first. His father is a more than sane investment banker and his own boss (which means that our hero...

TIFF 15: Demolition (Review)

Demolition, dir. by Jean-Marc Vallée, US 2015  By Martin I. Petrov    A normal man’s reaction to his wife’s tragic death would be grief and depression.

No matter how hard he tries to adapt...

Sea of Trees-review

by, Cameron Lui   Critics have not been very fond of the premier booed “The Sea of Trees,” directed by the talented Gus Van Sant.    Mathew McConaughey and Naomi Watts did not deserve the criticism they received during the premier. While many critics have called this one of the worst recent films by McConaughey, I thought he turned out yet another consistently passionate performance.    What made the movie so insightful was how right they got the dark...

Insurgent, Review: Prior knowledge

Insurgent, Review: Prior knowledge Metaphors, here, metaphors there, metaphors everywhere. Besides metaphors, there’s a lot of pain and anguish and a large take-away moral in Insurgent: unity in diversity/let a thousand flowers bloom/different does not mean bad or hostile/religion or caste should preach respect and love for others, not hatred. In that milieu, the appropriate title for the second coming, Divergent being the first foray, should have been Convergent. Obviously, that would ...
