Overdue DVD reviews

04 May

The reviews, that is, not the DVDs, though I do plan to return them to Surry Hills Library today. It’s been a while since I watched them, so the reviews will be briefer than I first planned.

1. For Whom the Bell Tolls 1943 star30 star30star30star30

2. December Boys 2007 star30star30star30star30a

3. Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown 1988 star30star30star30star30star30 Best viewing 2009

4. The Piano 1993 star30star30star30star30star30a Best viewing 2009

Quite a good batch this time, all of them well worth the time spent. I did find the classic For Whom the Bell Tolls showing its age, and despite many excellences it is just a touch confusing at times. December Boys is rather cloying, but very well acted. Young “Harry Potter” is good as an Australian! Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown is just as funny and inventive as it seemed when I saw it in Paddington in 1988. The Piano is a beautiful movie still. Hard to believe it is now 16 years since it was made!

I did say brief!
