This darling film was written by the man behind Silver Linings Playbook and its non-stop fun. The acting was extremely stilted, but in porn films that's pretty much the norm. Poor Alice Jessica Biel, never better. Did I mention that it is partly filmed backwards, as 'Irreversible' was? Too bad he's go green and clueless but he does like Alice's hot looks! However, I despised the black screen that would appear every time there was a cut. In the meanwhile, blondie leaves with the boy, telling him to finish his past so they could have a future. The cinematography is the only standout.
. A small town waitress gets a nail accidentally lodged in her head causing unpredictable behavior that leads her to Washington, D. She notices it who wouldn't, at this rate? But, alas, when Scotty takes Alice to the posh Gondola Restaurant in their small Indiana town, their dinner is interrupted by a construction worker with a nail gun near their table. And how in the hell did it took so many years to be released? Really good in all scenes, conveys mood and context. This is also not a nymphomaniac-like sexual exploration.
The '3' I gave the movie is for photography and soundtrack. Add on the lively direction and what's not to love? Also, a good part of the soundtrack comes from Pink Floyd. And the movie ends with him and original girl embraced under the shower professing endless love and protection. The setting is sweet and costumes definitely enhance Biel's beauty. Murphy and Electra always wear contrasting colors, while the background is usually very simple yet fitting to them both.
This results in her attracting the attentions of Trooper Scott James Marsden who is ready to propose after only a few months. One day, they met and had a no-strings-attached threesome with another woman, a young blonde Danish teenager named Omi, as a way to add some excitement to their love life. But there's a story, and that's what could be interesting about this film. As if to say that when in love, everything should be seen through the eyes of the lovers. This is where she draws the line.
Then this monster gets the pretty blonde underage neighbour girl pregnant. In one of Electra's and Murphy's conversations they talk about the sad reality that they are going nowhere and dragging each other down, they discuss taking a break. It will be no accident if you end up cheering for Alice and company! The movie abruptly switches between various stages of Murphy's and Electra's relationship, always cutting back to the present, where Murphy's is in absolute emotional agony and despair, raising a child with Clara. I didn't feel for anyone in this film. It is full of beautiful and weird dialogues and extremely emotional, 'free-played' graphic scenes.
There is a very awkward scene with him and the child in the bathtub, after blondie's face tells us she will leave him. Then she goes down into a spiral of drugs and alcohol, shutting him off her life completely. Even though a lot of times it seems like we are watching the same people 'fuck' in the same positions, different context, feelings and music make each of these scenes truly unique and mesmerizing on it's own. Russell has made way better films like Three Kings, Joy, American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook but this? Woe to her when she upsets a tray on a customer, in anger, and loses her job. Gaspar Noe constantly cuts through the past and the future, using the techniques he is so familiar with since Irreversible. Take out all the scenes where they present you with genitalia and you have a bit over one hour left. At times Murphy and Electra are so deeply engrained in one another that their fights and dialogues seem outright comical and immature, as if we are observing a 16 year- old couple.
Then he spends a full day calling people to try and find her. Yet this honesty, as brutal and daring as it might seem, feels necessary to connect with and understand what the characters are going through, on an entirely new emotional level. Murphy is an American cinema school student, living in Paris. It's beautiful to look at, as most Gaspar Noe films are. Biel is lovely and terrific as Alice while Marsden, Gyllenhaal, Tracy Morgan, Beverly Deangelo, Alley and all of the cast are first rate. Unfortunately, Alice has no insurance, Scott gets cold feet and neither her parents or vet friend Kirstie Alley can help.
These scenes however are not there to impress the viewer or open the doors to the unknown. Accidental Love is the kind of film where you question yourself with questions such as: Why did i watch this film? In the ensuing discussion about the atmosphere being ruined and the ring not fitting, the worker trips and a nail goes into Alice's head! Let's just say that it should have stayed forgotten as it was. His favorite movie is Kubrick's '2001', while hers is Lang's 'M', both of which seem to fuel Murphy and Electra's behavior throughout the movie, where Murphy is often aimlessly overwhelmed with hope and desire, while Electra seems unable to forgive. Unaware of the seismic effect it will have on their relationship, they invite their pretty neighbor into their bed. The script for 'Love' is only 7 pages long.
