With all the hype about the film, Gravity turned out to be a rather empty, superficial story. I guess the effects were interesting, but more likely from a process point of view, rather than being overly impressive to see. George Clooney played George Clooney, and the only other actor in the film was Sandra Bullock, who muttered a lot behind her space helmet. Overall, very disappointing, despite the overly dramatic soundtrack.
Enough Said, with the late James Ganfolfini, and the very present Julia Louis-Dreyfus, was fun, though not as profound as it set out to be. Basically a romantic comedy it tells the story of 2 slightly damaged people and the distractions and insecurities which challenge their relationship. Louis-Dreyfus continues to impress me with her comic facility. She was great as Elaine on Seinfeld and absoutely hilarious on Veep. She was good in this too, though unfortunately there was not a lot of chemistry between herself and Gandolfini, which was definitely a problem.
Also saw the award-winning film, Wadja. Definitely not light fare, it was the first film ever to be made inside Saudi Arabia. It's the story of about an irrepressible girl in an extremely repressed society. If it is a realistic depiction of life in Saudi Arabia, it is very sobering. Women's rights are virtually non-existent, religion is strictly "enforced", and individualism stifled. It's a fascinating look at a society seemingly out of sync with what we consider to be modern ideals.
That's it for my movie going. I still miss Breaking Bad and am now concentrating on watching the World Series!
