Nightcrawler Movie

Nightcrawler “Good and Creepy”

“Hotshots” looks at a movie!

Nightcrawler - Movie PosterNIGHTCRAWLER is a fascinating and dark movie that affects you the way passing an accident on the highway does: You want to look at it, but you feel a little bit guilty in doing so.

Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Louis Bloom, a petty thief who does come across an automobile accident in Los Angeles, and the experience changes his life so much that he becomes a different man because of it.

It is the middle of the night, Lou stops his car to observe what is happening at the scene, he watches a videographer record footage for morning news programs, and when he sees the footage on television, Lou decides that he can do that, and so he buys himself a camcorder and a police scanner and sets out to become a freelance videographer specializing in accidents and crime scenes that happen in the middle of the night.

Lou makes his first sale for $250, and when the news director tells him he has a good eye, Lou says, “I’m a very, very quick learner; you’ll be seeing me again.”

A carjacking crime wave going on in the city causes business to be so good for Lou that he hires a young homeless man for $30 a night to be his assistant.

Rick’s job is to ride shotgun, watch the traffic, give directions, and handle a second camera for different angles at the scenes.

Well, one night Lou and Rick come onto a crime scene that will change their lives.

It involves shootings during a home invasion, and because Lou and Rick arrive on the scene before the police do, they see the shooters leave the house, and Lou even records them.

Then Lou goes inside the house to get exclusive footage of the victims while Rick stays outside and stands watch.

Lou has no compunction against moving evidence inside the house for better camera angles before the police arrive and gets away with it.

For now.

Lou establishes a business relationship with the news director of one of the TV stations, who is Nina, played by Rene Russo, but he would like their relationship to be more than just business.

Rick wants more money, the police question Lou, and then all hell breaks loose.

NIGHTCRAWLER is fascinating to watch, very good, but very very very very creepy.

The November Man Movie

The November Man “The November Movie”

“Hotshots” looks at a movie!

The November Man - Movie PosterTHE NOVEMBER MAN might not be the worst movie I have seen all year, but it is certainly the worst spy thriller I have seen all year.

It stars Pierce Brosnan as Peter Devereaux, who used to be a CIA agent, and it has the tired old story of someone being pulled out of retirement for one last job.

The story begins in 2008 in Montenegro, and Devereaux is training another agent, a young man named David Mason, part of which training is, “You feel the need for a relationship? Get a dog.”

Mason then botches a mission by not following Devereaux’s orders, and suddenly it is five years later in Switzerland, where Devereaux is living in retirement, and he is notified that a woman in Moscow wants to “come in” because something is scaring her, her name is Natalia, and she is asking only for Devereaux to be the one to rescue her and bring her to safety.

We don’t know it yet, but Natalia and Devereaux have a history together, and he travels to Moscow to rescue her, but the Russians figure out what she is doing, and that mission is badly botched, but not before Natalia gives Devereaux her phone with incriminating photos on it.

Well, wouldn’t you know it, but Mason is involved in that failed mission, too, and now Devereaux wants revenge, because someone close to him was killed.

Now the story gets really confusing with a Russian named Arkady Federov about to become president of Russia, but there is something in his past that might cause him problems, a woman named Alice Fournier has information about his past, and so Devereaux wants to find her and protect her from others who want her dead.

Confusing? You bet! There are too many people and too many complicated stories going on, along with too many shoot-outs, car chases, and crashes to distract us from trying to figure out the plot.

And we don’t even know what the title means until near the end of the movie when we learn that Devereaux was called the November Man because after he passed through, nothing lived.

In that case, THE NOVEMBER MAN, the movie, could also be called “The November Movie,” because after I saw it, no other movie comes close to living.

“The Counselor ” More Novel than Movie

“More Novel Than Movie”

“Hotshots” looks at a movie!

The Counselor has so much going for it that you would think it has to be a successful movie, right?

The Counselor

Wrong!

First of all, it stars Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, and Rosie Perez, and of all the lineups of acclaimed stars in acclaimed movies, this is definitely one of them.

Second of all, it was directed by Ridley Scott, and of all the acclaimed directors who have won awards for their movies, he is definitely another one of them.

And third of all, it was written by Cormac McCarthy, who is an acclaimed novelist with many of his novels having been made into acclaimed movies, and of all the great screenwriters in the history of movies, he is a pretty good novelist.

This movie has three other things in it that are worthy of mention: a graphic sex scene, a graphic murder scene, and many scenes of too much talking and not enough action.

The sex scene involves a woman, a fancy car, and a man sitting in the front seat of the car watching, but it is more laughable than erotic.

The murder scene comes in an unexpected location, it involves an unusual device, but takes so long and shows such agony and pain and so much blood that it is more disgusting than effective.

And the scenes of too much talking that are also more philosophical than descriptive would be better read in a novel than heard in a movie. They sound as if they had been written by an acclaimed novelist instead of an acclaimed screenwriter.

Wait a minute! They were!

Anyway, here is the story. A successful attorney in El Paso, Texas, with a busy practice, a beautiful girlfriend, and an expensive car wants more, and so he gets involved in the illegal trafficking of drugs from Mexico into the U.S.

He meets with the necessary contacts he needs in order to arrange for a deal that involves $20 million of drugs to be shipped across the border on its way to Chicago, but as usually happens in the movies, something goes wrong.

Terribly wrong, disastrously wrong, and murderously wrong.

As a matter of fact, those are the very words that could be used to describe this movie.

The Counselor, as a movie, is a spectacular novel.

I’m Dan Culberson and this is “Hotshots.”

Enough Said

“Enough Said” Title Says It Best

0

“Title Says It Best”

“Hotshots” looks at a movie!

Enough Said is a romantic comedy that is the very definition of quirky, which is a synonym of idiosyncratic, which means eccentric or peculiar of constitution or temperament and also an individualizing characteristic or quality.

Enough Said

In other words, it is hard to define.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus stars as Eva, a divorced masseuse who carries her massage table in the trunk of her car to her clients’ homes, and we see three of those clients throughout the movie as a running gag, or should that be a driving gag, or should that be a massaging gag.

Eva has been divorced 10 years, and she has a teenage daughter, Ellen, who is going away to college in the fall.

Eva’s best friend is Sarah, played by Toni Collette, and at the beginning of the movie Eva goes to a party with Sarah and her husband, at which Eva says to Sarah, “There’s not one man at this party that I’m attracted to.”

However, Eva does meet a man at the party, Albert, played by James Gandolfini, who has been divorced for four years and who also has a teenage daughter who is going off to college in the fall.

Eva also meets a woman at the party, Marianne, who is a poet and who becomes a new client for Eva.

Well, Albert likes Eva enough that he calls her and asks her out to dinner, and Eva likes Albert enough that she accepts.

Now, maybe this is how first dates are conducted in California, but at the end of the date when Albert drives Eva home, he doesn’t even get out of the car and walk her up to her front door, shaking hands with her in the front seat.

At any rate, Eva tells Sarah that she thought it was a very good date, and now she finds Albert kind of sexy, enough so that they continue dating and doing more than shaking hands.

Much more.

Meanwhile, Eva’s new client, Marianne, enjoys being with Eva so much that she wants to become friends with Eva, saying that she doesn’t have many close friends whom she can talk to, which mostly consists of bad-mouthing her ex-husband.

Well, you can see where this going, can’t you, especially when you learn that Marianne also has a daughter going away to college.

Enough Said.

I’m Dan Culberson and this is “Hotshots.”
