The films A Beautiful Mind and Girl Interrupted both deal with the idea of mental illness, but they do it in different styles. This critique looks at what these films tell society about the mentally ill.
Birdman is entertaining for the acting. While there are some amusing parts, the film is rather self-indulgent. It is worth watching, at least once, for Keaton and Norton, but it's kind of a train wreck, beyond their performances.
Girls is one of those shows that works for a certain group of people. If you don't mind clunky dialogue, lack of authenticity, and subpar storytelling you might really get into this. Oh, and if you don't want to spring for HBO you can always just watch Tiny Furniture it's pretty much the same thing.
Tsotsi is a thinking man’s (or woman’s) film. It leaves you with plenty to think about. Can you condemn David/Tsotsi for his crimes or can you believe the experience with the baby has changed him for the better?
