‘Whale’: Too Much Intensity… and Brendan Fraser

I look at the list of Oscar nominated movies and I am stunned. The coolness is also with me. There are some I haven’t seen yet, although my ignorance doesn’t keep me awake at night. Well, I have a certain and understandable confusion about what Steven Spielberg has done, about his own childhood and about Sam Mendes’ memories of the cinema of his teenage years. But others invite depression. If this represents the best vintage of the year, you better stop feeling nostalgic about going into the dark room. I am affected by the sensation of being nothing here or there.

credit of whale They appear only at the end and I had no idea about them. In other words, I look at it without bias (I have many, and a fair number of them) or context. The only setting in which this occurs is a house and almost everything happens in the living room. It dwells in a morbidly obese man (I think the correct term is morbidly obese), terminally ill, devastated, trying to find some peace with his past, seeking forgiveness from a paranoid daughter who Feels abandoned by him, sorry for what she ever felt in her troubled life to remember the perfection she caused those who were close to her. He’s a teacher who works remotely, every physical or mental effort he puts in causes him so much pain, it’s pathetic. Sweet too, sometimes touching. She is obsessed with Captain Ahab and Moby Dick, the protagonists of one of the most beautiful and darkest novels ever written. And he doesn’t stop talking, although he also knows how to listen.

So sorry for this man’s dying condition, celebrating that his suicidal lover’s sister takes care of him and makes him feel less alone, knowing that his daughter will eventually get rid of her aggression towards her father, someone’s excessive As a sensibility who sincerely wants to settle accounts before she’s gone, I couldn’t be more excited about her tragedy. There’s a dramatic tone that puts me off. There are situations and characters that I find forced. I acknowledge that he has an intense lyrical business, but it doesn’t infuriate me, it doesn’t cause a lump in my throat, I don’t get involved.

When I finish I discover that it’s directed by Darren Aronofsky, a creator praised to the point of delirium by a lot of critics and who generally annoys me, with the exception of the very twisted With black Swan and tough and kind warrior. I agree that he always tries to be original and annoying, as long as it gets results. in whale It’s nothing that really bothers me, although I’m not obsessed with it either. It stars Brendan Fraser. as well as monstrous prostheses that deform his body. He belongs to the gallery of characters for whom the acting Oscar has always felt a weakness. They’ll probably give it to you. And it would not be unfair. Her body is fearsome, but her face and voice express a variety of sensibilities with brilliance, sensitivity and magnetism. this is what i like the most whale.
