Fucky Film Review!

She’s So Lovely

Posted by Web Manager on January 11, 2009

Nick Cassavetes 1997

People have been telling me to see this movie for years, including, most recently, again, my mother, who is clearly on a roll. SHE’S SO LOVELY is fierce, mainly because the script, written by the director’s father John before he died, is amazing. It kind of felt like the actors were directing themselves, which makes some sense, but I bet if John had directed this the acting would have been a little less self-indulgent.  But there are some awesome stretches in this film especially towards and through the end. It’s cool when a film’s ending is better than its beginning — usually its the other way around.
