Movie Reviews

"I don't eat children either." - "Alice"
Cleo | USA | 07/27/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Natalie Portman hasn't had an appropriate leading man since Jean Reno in The Professional. This movie made me especially miss their pairing. She seems too much for the people in this film, beyond their capacity to comprehend. I think everyone is lying in this movie and no, Alice does not love Crocodile. She just doesn't look like she belongs with any of these people and London looks empty and uncomfortable. The best thing about this movie is the line that she delivers early in the movie that she doesn't "eat children either." and the second best thing about this movie is the sofas."
Best Relationship Movie Ever?
Joseph Parker | Austin, TX | 08/07/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have so many bitter and wonderful memories about this movie. This movie is about understanding our desires in relationships. I read a few reviews saying there were no likable characters in this film, and while I don't think there are any cookie cutter good guys, I don't think that is true.
Spoilers
The movie starts with a romance between Jude Law and Natlie Portman. Its almost purely physical it seems, and after a while because of the lack of tension he finds attraction with Julia Roberts. Because he can't have Julia, because she doesn't want to cheat on Natalie, Jude pretends to be her on a sex chat with Clive Owen, in what may be the performance of his career. He wants to have control over her since he can't exert that in a relationship. He is not being honest with his partner. Taking away control from her for selfish reasons. Julia and Clive really do fall in love and get married, and eventually she runs accross Jude again. They begin an affair and fall in love each dumping their partners. In order to get the divorce from Clive, Julia sleeps with him, and Jude dumps her because he can't take the knowledge and the control taken away from him. Jude eventually wisens up and goes back to face Clive, who tells him there is no way he is getting Julia back, but he knows where Natalie is and he should go back there. But before Jude leaves, he has to exert control, and tells him the reason he knows where she is, is because he slept with her after Julia dumped him. Jude and Natalie get back together, but Natalie denies sleeping with Clive. Time passes and Jude begs for the truth because it is eating him up, and Natalie admits to it, before breaking up with him. That was her control in the relationship, and having to give that up again is too painful, and she leaves. It is revealed ingeniously that she had more control that thought because she did love him, and she had to protect herself, where as she did not with Clive because it was just sex. its about protecting our emotions in an oversexed world. A lot of people don't like Clive and Natalie because they had sex, but they were both single and consenting adults, but Natalie is pure enough to get away. Its about honesty and power games in relationships, and how vulnerable we are willing to be. How well we know people, and how we are different people with different people because we are never ourselves with them. Great film"
