We saw the movie “Closer” this weekend. I’ll give this movie a definite thumbs up. Part of the reason is because there are some elements of my own life (past more than present) in this movie as well – I’m not going to say which elements! But overall I really think is very good. Natalie Portman is brilliant in this role, but the other actors are superb as well. The movie is very dark, but there are some hilarious scenes as well. Jude Law has the funniest line in the movie.
i thought the overall mood of the movie was dark, yet i loved witty words that came out from Alice’s mouth! so many clever lines!
This movie is four shades of fucked (literally, in some cases). Orchestrated like a Shakespearian play, Closer shows the relationship and obsession between two couples; Law, Natalie Portman, Clive Owen and Julia Roberts. It’s raw, emotional, shocking and a wonderful perspective of the human psyche.
