The movie "Closer"...any philosophic interpretations?
« on: December 04, 2004, 09:59:23 PM »
I saw the movie last night...before the LSAT.  Thought it would get my mind off of deep thinking.  Couldn't have been farther from the truth.  A great movie, but really F**KED up if you ask me...any thoughts? ???

That the most cunning, conniving, animalistic person (clive owen) will triumph.

And that Jude Law is a female private part.

Everyone in the movie deserved what they got.  MAN, it was depressing.  And it totally did not deliver in the **visual** department if you know what I mean.

yeah, natalie portman was supposed to have a full frontal shot, but she made mike nichols remove it, or something.

i was hoping for a little boobage, at least.

You mean the cinematography sucked?  
Was it the lighting, or the way the shots were framed?

I was actually hoping for some "action."  None in the film.

Personally, I think Jude is rather sexy (and had that belief before People decided to put him on the cover as the "world's sexiest man")....even though some may think

You can get 'action' in tons of other films.

The thing that I liked about this movie is that I managed not to see it.
