Final Film Critique
I really enjoyed watching
Leaving Normal.Marianne's facial expressions were really distracting and kind of annoying, but once I got over that I liked the film. Marianne and Darli went on the road in search of somewhere better. They figured out that they were not heading for a destination. They found safety in each other. Once they realized that their companionship was more important than any guy they've had, they were able to quit travelling and make a home for themselves.
My favorite film this semester was
Boys on the Side. I'm kind of a sucker for sappy movies. I thought this film had a great message and it is one I would actually watch again. Other than
Little Miss Sunshineand
Boys on the Side, I don't think I would watch any of the road films a second time. I think I like these two films best because they seemed to have a coherent story line. I like movies that seem to have a purpose. I don't like the aimless wandering.
