Ghulam,

I read your link and responded to it.


I liked your observations. I do not think either Tarantino or Dr. Hart consider the detoxification gimmicks to be anything more than "temporary emotional salves". Pleasurable fantasies work in fairytales for adults if presented well.

I have one theory and I seem to be the only one here who hated the ending. My theory is that Tarantino was not giving “the ending that everyone wanted “
He was giving the ending that would show all the viewers how clever, brilliant, and genius Quentin Tarantino is. Well, he is all those things but he likes violence too much.....and nobody these days should stand for too much violence.

Speaking of, I tried watching Inglorious Basterds last night and got right about to the same point as before and packed it in. I didn't like anything about the film. Boring.

'
Lulu Wang's "The Farewell" is a delightful little family comedy centered around a special relationship between a granddaughter living in New York and her terminally ill grandmother living in China. The humor derives mostly from differences in attitudes of the two cultures in matters of illness and death. Shuzhen Zhao, who plays the grandmother, and Awkwafina, as the granddaughter, are marvelous. It lacks the shallowness and glitz of "Crazy Rich Asians", but is more satisfying because of its humanity.

Very hard to grasp that you didn't even like Christoph Waltz's brilliant (and deservedly Oscar-winning) supporting performance. I liked (not loved) the movie, but Waltz's work blew me away.

It has two of the tensest scenes I've ever seen in a movie: the opening, and the scene in the restaurant.

I thought Waltz was cheesy and almost a parody.
I found it a poorly conceived role, played poorly.

Didn't like the film's casting at all.

Can't think of one thing I liked about the film.
Even the title is stupid.

Fwiw, I have Jackie Brown cued up next.
I seem to recall liking some scenes and having a middling reaction to the whole.

Seldom have I so utterly disagreed with a single post.
