Between Us (2012)

There are numerous truths said in this film. Extreme behaviors that may take place also. The general feeling I had been that of a painting canvas where there may be small beautiful and other not beautiful pieces but the overall picture is far from being nice. This film gave a phony outlook with hard to identify origins. May be it was the lack of a position about the nature of things. Or the material used needed more work. The bottom line is that “Between Us” was not convincing.

My rating: 04/10

Smashed (2012)

Smashed by James Ponsoldt  had such a depressing start as a film that almost drove me out of the movie theater. I was glad I did not go. After watching it, it was evident that such a truthful, honest deposition of facts and life situations demanded such an opening.
Alcohol or drugs is an attempt of escape from reality to what we think it is a better place. A place we are not forced to deal with life.
They are other ways too…Many of us know some…But the concept remains.

The acting of Mary Elizabeth Winstead is amazing (it’s not only the looks 🙂 ).

My rating: 07/10
