Today began with a long wait in front of the Ryerson. That theatre is consistently late seating people, even for the first screening of the day. And let’s not even mention the washrooms.
The Oranges is a pretty good film. There’s a great cast and a funny script, but I’m not sure what it’s saying about family, happiness, and commitment. Seems to be saying personal happiness is more important than anything, but maybe I’m being harsh.
Next up is Shame, movie about a sex addict by the director of the stunning Hunger. It’s a beautifully directed film. The music was amazing and so were the performances. The subject doesn’t interest me much, but I love this director.
Finally, Sisters and Brothers, by Canadian Carl Bressai. This is a comedy about siblings and works pretty well, though some of the actors weren’t quite up to the weight of their roles. It’s good entertainment, and the CBC should show it.
