Everlasting Moments -- Thums WAY Up!
Of all the films I've seen in 2009, Everlasting Moments outshines all. Or eclipses all.
You get the picture.
I won't review the film; my namesake, Roger Ebert [why he's ripping me off, I'll never know] posted a nearly-perfect review of the film in the Chicago Sun-Times. The review's worth reading even if you don't see the movie. But SEE THE MOVIE!
I'll add that I loved the seeming languor of the film -- its pace helps define it. The film has energy, though, and moves -- it just doesn't really tell you when it's moving.
And I loved the three performances cited by Ebert.
And I loved the political currents that don't really propel the action, but that lap at the hull of their lives.
And I loved that little Contessa. thu
