MOVIE DISCUSSION: A24 Films

As some of you know, or for those of you who don't know, A24 is my favorite film distributor. The reason is because I love that their films are so fresh and original, they generally are quality filled, they take risks, and they are overall consistent. As an indie film lover, and in a time of WAY TOO MANY franchises, I feel that A24 caters to my needs more than other indie studios/distributors. I decided to rank A24's films. Anything that isn't on here I haven't seen.

What are your favorite gems from A24? Comment below & let me know!

Thanks to @filmsnobreviews for the cool pic at the end of this album.

26 kwietnia, polską premierę miał film ,,The Circle: Krąg" wyreżyserowany na podstawie powieści Dave'a Eggersa. Niestety książki nie miałam okazji przeczytać, ale na pójście do kina się skusilam. Tym bardziej, że uwielbiam Emme Watson oraz Toma Hanksa, którzy odegrali główne role. Nie liczyłam, że będzie to jakiś mega wystrzalowy film, ale podczas seansu o dziwo bardzo się wkrecilam.
Fabuła dotyczy poważnego problemu jakim jest rozwój social mediów w dzisiejszych czasach. Jak duże korporacje chcą śledzić nasz każdy krok, jak powoli i samowolnie stajemy się pionkami w grze którą stawką są kolosalne pieniądze. Władze wiedzą co robią...Kamery wszędzie? Czemu nie, przecież każdy lubi rozgłos, szum i pokazywanie każdego momentu swojego życia, nawet tego który powinien być zachowany dla nas. Film wydał mi się o tyle prawdziwy, że pewne zdarzenia już się dzieją, a ludzie dla głupiego selfie tracą nawet życie. Co będzie za kilka lat? Czy będziemy tak jak w filmie cybernetycznymi ludzikami bez odrobiny prywatności? Aż strach pomyśleć, no alee przecież wszystko jest właśnie na tej drodze...
Jedynymi minusami filmu to fakt, że niestety pojawiały się tzw.,,martwe" momenty, niektóre mogli sobie zdecydowanie darować. Troszeczkę zawiodłam się też na postaci pana Bailey'a. Niby coś tam robił, ale tak jakby nic nie robił 😅 Poza tym chyba do takiej błachej roli nie trzeba angażować aż tak dobrego aktora. No ale wydaje mi się, że to był czysty chwyt aby przyciągnąć widzów, bo przecież kto nie obejrzy filmu gdzie jest Tom Hanks😉 Sama poszłam w większości dla obsady😂 Osobiście film polecam, głównie ze względu na to iż porusza ważny dla nas temat 💖

(偷在神鬼奇航那篇最後補了點心得)
21號看的三部英文片名都是單詞,分別是The Wall、The Shack、The Circle,看來取片名真是一大學問呀,前面兩部適合直翻,但是這部片名其實是公司的名字,直翻應該就沒人懂。

艾瑪華森飾演的Mae原本在小公司當客服,在朋友的介紹下,進入了夢寐以求的科技公司The Circle當菜鳥。這間公司每週五會有夢想大會,就是用來發表新概念或新產品,當週剛好由湯姆漢克斯飾演的公司創辦人Bailey發表「See Change」,一個小球型的高畫質攝影機,可以即時收集數據或者用作監督政府。

在一次意外後,Mae同意戴上改良後的球型攝影機,將自己的生活直播給全世界的人看,這也讓她變成世界知名的公眾人物。然而在一次夢想大會上,他們的新概念「Soul Search」,導致Mae的青梅竹馬意外身亡。也因此Mae開始反思公司的方向是不是走偏了。

她想起了之前在Party上認識的軟體設計者,由約翰波耶加飾演的Ty。當初Ty設計軟體時,並沒有想到會被Bailey亂用,他鬥不過只好隱藏自己。最後在Ty的協助下,Mae順利地在一次夢想大會上揭露了Bailey的惡行惡狀,Mae也承諾The Circle的員工,會帶領他們走出新的方向。

其實就是便利v.s隱私的問題,一看完我就想到之前,在換發新身份證要按捺指紋,做全民指紋建檔的政策。同意者聲稱在犯罪的調查上有更好的效果,反對者認為這是種對人權的侵害,最後由反對派獲勝,大法官會議在釋字第603號宣告戶籍法關於按捺指紋的規定違憲。另一方面來說,其實也是自由v.s秩序的問題。

這部電影議題設定的很好,但是劇情大大的降低了整部電影的評價。首先關於這間公司的夢想大會,其實從另一個角度來看就是邪教大會,明明進去這公司的人智商應該都蠻高的,但是對於基本法律以及其所保護的人權概念,可以說是一點都沒有。有人會說這是集體意識,如果你不融入公司就等著被排擠,好吧,那我們真的要謝謝那些勇於揭露違法的人。

再來就是結局轉換得太迅速了,在Mae最後說完要帶領公司的下一幕,直接跳成全世界幾乎都裝了See Change,沒有說到底發生了什麼事。不過似乎是在說著,未來這種直播的風潮可能無法避免,看看現在越來越多的直播App就知道,“楚門的世界”真的不遠了。

最後,我覺得Emma Watson很漂亮,但是她演戲真的都一個樣,之前看“美女與野獸”就覺得她把Belle演得太傲氣了,是不是演太久“哈利波特”的後遺症呀。如果硬要挑一部我覺得比較好的,應該是“窒命地”,也是一部邪教片。

Link w bio ⤴

I saw this back in January. I had avoided it for a year because I worried it would be too heavy or depressing but it actually wasn't & I really liked this film. I found it interesting, thought provoking, funny & eccentric. It was based on a well known writer's life, David Foster Wallace, who committed suicide in 2008. Hung himself. The film is more about his life before his death so its not morbid.
The film made you feel sorry for the guy but also laugh because he seemed so neurotic and strange at times. I'd really like to read the book this was based on in the near future.
Jason Segel should have been nominated. He really totally transformed himself for this role and was so good in this film! If you are a lover of film, writing and/or books + literature, you will certainly enjoy this. Highly recommend. 👍🏻Directed by #JamesPonsoldt and based on the memoir "Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself" by #DavidLipsky 📖 Lipsky was a rolling stone journalist & is played by Jesse Eisenberg.

🎬直播風暴 the circle (2017)
.
IMDb:5.3
.
導演James Ponsoldt 的前一部電影作品「寂寞公路」自己還蠻喜歡的,這部集結了Tom hanks和Emma Watson的新片the circle,改編自Dave Eggers的同名小說「the Curcle」講述在一個隱私全面揭露的網路時代,一個網路帳號就可以讓自己的資料被瀏覽無疑及所有行動被監控,雖帶來相對的便利性卻也造成隱私權危機的故事。
.
不知為何在觀影過程中一直很難融入到片中的世界觀,一直有種好不現實的感覺。但覺得劇本本身最大的問題是在於處理一些角色心態轉折(尤其是emma飾演的Mae)上的粗糙感。不管是黑化或是覺醒的部分都不夠細膩,有一種隨性交代了事的率性而為。尤其是急轉直下的倉促收尾更是看的讓我有種導演是在趕下班嗎的疑惑感。
.
演員方面,tom hanks飾演的CEO角色其實還滿得心應手,微妙微俏的,即便他在本片的角色比較傾向於反派,但我覺得他就是有種讓人很難以討厭他的魅力啊。
Emma Watson可惜在幾個表情的詮釋上我感受不到他想表達的情緒為何,是要哭還是要笑還是生氣或懊悔,我都分辨不大出來,這其實也多少影響到對於劇情的理解(原本轉折就略顯粗糙,加上無法撐托的演技更看的索然無味),希望她可以早日突破這樣的狀況,不然對於未來戲路發展可能會有所受限。
另外提一下Bill Paxton,雖然他在這片的戲份不算多,但此片是他的遺作。
.
導演有一手好牌,不錯的議題,優秀的團隊(攝影/配樂)但感覺應該在故事方面可以有更好的詮釋方式,雖然原本小說的結局似乎跟電影結局不同,可惜呈現出的效果不彰,蠻惋惜的。 .

Despite a charismatic performance by Tom Hanks, THE CIRCLE squanders the potential to make good use of it's timely subject matter about today's digital age of social media and online privacy. | ⭐⭐1/2 (Review link in bio)

Quando Mae viene assunta da The Circle non sa che la sua vita sta per cambiare radicalmente. La società per cui lavora, infatti, richiede ai suoi dipendenti una "trasparenza" che è accesso indiscriminato ad ogni dettaglio della loro vita personale.
THE CIRCLE, da Sabato 20 a Martedì 23 Maggio al Cinema Don Zucchini!

The Circle (2017)
🎬
Having pulled off a hat trick of terrific movies (Smashed, The Spectacular Now, and The End of the Tour), James Ponsoldt established himself as a master at capturing the subtle connections of human beings at their most lost and fragile. Elegant and thoughtful, Ponsoldt’s direction is far better than the material he works with in The Circle, a cautionary tale that feels timely… maybe twenty years ago. Adapted from Dave Eggers’ 2013 novel, The Circle wants to be a thinking person’s popcorn paranoia thriller, but the story is also pulpy and cliched. Too many elements seem lifted from other movies: Mae Holland (Emma Watson), an eager and intelligent millennial, lends her dream job at a giant social network company, and with great perks comes great hidden consequences. Of course, the company’s CEO (Tom Hanks) is disarming and amoral. Of course, Mae’s best friend Annie (Karen Gillan, so good in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) is a company top performer who becomes a rival and an outcast. Of course, Mae’s guy friend (Boyhood’s Ellar Coltrane) lives off the grid. And of course, Mae meets an insider (John Boyega, underused) who is ambivalent about the company’s ethics. The Circle boasts an impressive cast, including Bill Paxton in his final film role, and the filmmakers raise genuinely intriguing questions. Could the eradication of privacy be justified with the best of intentions? In the movie’s most thrilling episode, Mae demonstrates how the vast number of online users can track down the most elusive criminal and have that person apprehended in 20 minutes. How to decide when saying no to being a part of the circle means saying no to catching child murderers? The movie is savvy to make Mae a convert as she decides to broadcast herself 24/7 with trolling commentary from those who are online, but the rise and fall of her and Annie in the company’s social ladder is choppily, unconvincingly staged. For a film that is all about staying connected, The Circle could have been more in touch with the real world.

The Circle is a textbook example of a film with an interesting premise that ultimately fails to do anything with it. The trailers made it seem as though this film revolves around Emma Watson’s character discovering unseedy things about Tom Hanks’ very Steve Jobs-esque CEO, but instead we get a really dull film about Emma Watson walking around a college campus and vlogging. Now I like Emma Watson as an actress, but she is sleepwalking through this film, giving a very bland performance and having a very poorly written character that feels like she never does anything, things just sort of happen to her. But then when she does actually do things, they always are extremely stupid and put herself and everyone else in a lot of danger. John Boyega was another actor wasted in this film as his character in the beginning seemed actually pretty interesting but for the rest of the film he literally just stands in the background! At best this film could’ve been a decent episode of Black Mirror, posing the question about whether or not the benefits of complete surveillance outweigh the clear negatives but it doesn’t seem like the movie has an answer. And I’m not saying that the film leaves it open for the audience to interpret it either way which would have been fine, but instead they spend nearly the entire movie hinting towards one way and then
in the last five minutes they completely change directions! I feel bad for hating on this film so much because it has a lot of people I love, I even really like the director who did the very underrated Spectacular Now and the End of the Tour. But overall,
this isn’t a terrible movie and it is definitely watchable but it does just feel like a lot of wasted potential. I’m gonna give the Circle a 4/10

Sesión de cine... El Círculo, la crítica la pone bastante mal, pero no me ha parecido especialmente mala, tampoco es una grandísima película, pero está bien y nunca está demás una llamada de atención sobre el uso que se da a las redes sociales y su implicación e intromisión, cada vez mayor, en nuestro día a día, además las interpretaciones son creíbles, lo que ayuda a la dinámica de la historia. La historia se centra en una chica que quiere trabajar en LA empresa y cómo se desarrolla su vida allí, y, la empresa, el círculo, viene a ser como si Google, Apple y Facebook fueran uno y su razón de ser es obtener el mayor número de usuarios y de información posible, de todos y todo, y avanzar hacía la transparencia total, con el fin de que no haya limitación alguna en cuanto a información ni conocimientos. Algo no tan alejado de la realidad y totalmente creíble, donde cada cual puede sacar sus propias conclusiones porque la película solo te plantea unos hechos, no da lecciones ni opiniones, solo da una visión, su visión de una sociedad que en ocasiones pierde la noción del bien y el mal, de la privacidad, del respeto a los demás e incluso de la realidad. #thecircle #elcirculo #emmawatson #tomhanks #karengillan #johnboyega #dannyelfman #jamesponsoldt #redessociales #socialnetwork #instamovie #instafilm

Ayer me sorprendió gratamente #ElCírculo #TheCircle. Una crítica #inteligente a nuestra #sociedad y sus #valores. Cómo poco a poco, el mundo cibernético va ganando terreno al mundo real. La delgada línea existente entre lo correcto y lo incorrecto, lo privado y lo público. Toca temas tan importantes como la #libertad individual y colectiva, el acoso mediático... y otras cuestiones de actualidad, tales como la política y la globalización. Sorprendente e ingenioso final. Muy acertado. A más de uno habría que ponerle en esa tesitura y observar su reacción. Porque las cosas se ven distintas, dependiendo con el ojo que se miren... Una #película constructiva y totalmente recomendable.

Sabemos que lo que genera un me gusta o la subida de una foto en nuestras redes sociales? Somos conscientes de la información que damos a terceros cuando conectamos nuestro teléfono móvil? Ayer fui al cine a ver "El círculo" protagonizada por Emma Watson y Tom Hanks y en ella se habla del poder de la información, del control que las redes ejercen sobre nosotros, de los vulnerables que somos, de cuanto necesitamos estar conectados con el mundo y de todo ello hablo hoy en el mi blog. Y te animo a que lo leas y me des tu opinión al respecto... Estamos seguros? Es necesario? Se puede evitar?
