A tearing apart of brothers once loving and devoted.
(Differing allegiances mean the relationship’s demoted)
Though some problems (including pace)
There’s that spectacular chariot race …
And Huston does a good job, it should be noted.
Lovingly crafted look at The Beatles’ touring years.
(At concerts, they were hardly heard under the cheers)
It’s a nostalgic sesh,
But still feels vital and fresh.
Plus terrific interviews with friends, fans and peers.
Two young dudes (the arms-dealing world’s upstarts):
They initially get by using their bullshitting arts.
Hill plays morally reprehensible
To perfection: elevating the film beyond its weaker parts.
So Nancy’s in search of late Mom’s secret beach …
Then danger! Will safety ever be within reach?
As Sharky gets forceful,
Nancy gets resourceful.
Often ridiculous, but there’s genuine tension: Screech!
The ‘perfect’ PTA moms are on the attack:
Trying to make Amy feel like she’s slack.
A few moments are patchy,
But the laughs: so catchy.
Hahn shines, and Sykes’ cameo’s a cack.
Will the net lead to elation or strife,
When your dishwasher wants your fridge as a wife?
Asking experts with clout,
About the web’s future impact on life.
Óscar searches (his bosses demand Neruda’s found),
But Pablo’s living an eccentric life underground.
A dream-like, lyrical chase
To an ever-moving base.
Strong leads (adversaries unexpectedly bound).
See The Stooges across their lows & their prime,
Grit, grime & a Pop interview that’s sublime,
The bird Iggy flips,
In many sweet live clips,
This film is a real cool time.
Aussie doco looking at body image: the shaming,
Low self-esteem, bullying and blaming …
RE: the illusive search for perfection.
An often-powerful, timely reflection
On attitudes that need an urgent reframing.
Despite a talented cast and visual work that’s often strong,
Many elements don’t work (and just feel wrong).
Quite a few scenes are a mess:
Unfocused, lacking finesse.
Some tangents not explored, and other parts drag on too long.
