I'm 6 years late in seeing the Academy Award nomination film UNFAITHFUL starring Diane Lane. Last night I finally sat down and put it in (that's what she said) and was pleasantly surprised with how TERRIBLE it was.
*If you haven't seen the film and you want to (for some dumb reason) than don't read any more of this blog.
Here are just some of my many critical thoughts:
#1 Painfully obvious writing and acting (except for #3)
#2 Richard Gere was as interesting as watching paint dry
#3 DEATH BY SNOWGLOBE!!! WHAT THE FUCK!?!?!?!
Wait -seriously when people raved about this film I didn't hear anything about a snowglobe murder- that was insane and completely shocking! Who thinks of shit like that? well I guess screenwriters Alvin Sargent and William Broyles Jr. who adapted the film from Claude Chabrol's "La Femme infidèle- I think something was lost in translation.
You have to be a pretty big douche to be killed by a snowglobe- that's queerer than I am.
I wonder if snowglobe sales suffered in 2002 with the release of this film.
In closing- WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?!?
p.s. I need to start my collection of snowglobes IMMEDIATELY!
