I VIFFed the night away…

atom egoyan et moi after adoration screening

notes on:

rachel getting married – I once wondered whether Anne Hathaway’s semi-bit part in brokeback was an indication that she really had it. Now I know she just needs a mint screenplay. The ugly rawness of her character amongst a sea of flawed kin tugged away at my heart. Not one person do you truly like in this film, as each character wears their neurosis on their sleeve…often hard to swallow.

adoration – A true Egoyan puzzle teeming with the investigation of technology and its role in unveiling cultural heritage and self-exploration in a tightly composed arrangement. It is a comfort to see his mark in devices, casting, and plot construction – a solid thread linking to previous films within his archive.
