Never Let Me Go – Embarcadero
Mark Romanek directs this story based on a novel by the same author who wrote Remains of the Day, in which Keira Knightly, Carey Mulligan, Charlotte Rampling, and a boarding school star. Supposed to be a little creepy. You don’t need atmosphere for that – just look at Keira’s never-closed mouth!
Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps – Everywhere
Scrambling around to find a place to eat prior to the screening, and having downtown taken over with Oracle, I arrived too late for a press seat and had to sit in the front row. I left before the movie was over, and realized I had watched it for 2 hours! It was really boring and ugly. Carey Mulligan has a bad menopausal haircut, the swift monologues of Gordon Gekko of the past are now nothing amazing due to Aaron Sorkin, Gilmore Girls, etc. Shia LeBoef is not as cute anymore because we have Vinny from Jersey Shore to watch every week and has that same kind of charm. Josh Brolin isn’t convincing. Frank Lagella is with beard, but he’s only in it for a short while.
