If I’m being totally honest, this movie was not that great. The concept was kind of cool because it focused on only 2 characters. Don’t get me wrong John David Washington, son of Denzel Washington, and Zendaya do give great performances but they never reached the breakthrough level.
Washington plays Malcolm who just released a film. At the premiere he forgets to thank Marie during his speech. Zendaya plays Marie, who has plenty of her own demons, and is what the main character in Malcolm’s film is based on.
The two return home from the premiere party, and it’s 1 o’clock in the morning and immediately start arguing. You can tell from the beginning that Marie is ticked off about something. Marie makes some mac and cheese and the movie is worth it just to watch Malcolm destroy the mac and cheese while arguing with Marie.
It’s then that it’s revealed that Malcolm didn’t mention Marie in his speech. Arguments ensue and they are brutal.
Then the “white woman from the LA Times” review gets posted online and another argument ensues.
The go between the stone cold put downs and the lovey dovey scenes grew boring but that’s the core of the movie.
Again, the performances were great but the storyline could have used a bit of work. I just don’t feel this movie will be a lot of fans cup of tea.
Not sold on a lot of what this offers, but the acting from Zendaya and John David Washington is absolutely phenomenal – flawless, in fact.
The aforementioned duo are truly outstanding, I loved their performances from start-to-finish; whether it the more serious bits or the more amusing parts. Great delivery, best acting I’ve seen in a film in a while – no word of a lie.
As noted at the top, I’m admittedly not fully sure about the rest of the film. I’m definitely not saying it’s bad, disappointing or anything but I am unsure about it. Honestly though, the two leads take away any negatives I may have from the production’s other departments. They elevate it, for sure.
I’d fully recommend checking out ‘Malcolm & Marie’ – if only for Zendaya and Washington.
Exhausting to watch but good!
I’m glad I watched this film in my living room with the volume low and not at the cinema.
The dialogues were a bit on and off to me. It was a bit hard to keep up at times with all the shouting and swearing. Sometimes a bit too scholar on Marie’s side, like she was reading her lines.
That said, I think the acting was really good. Enough to keep me captivated during the whole time. It felt authentic.
The aesthetic in general was raw and really beautiful.
The way it’s written and performed is done more in the style of a stage production, not the normal naturalism you’d expect on screen. Can makes it seem overacted. I don’t know, it’s a stylistic choice… I just don’t know if it’s a choice the director intended to make. Someone here said it’s like a collection of acting exercises, which is pretty accurate.
Didn’t finish. Some might like it, some might not. Could feel the presence of some over-directing in it. Like the way Malcolm ate the mac and cheese. Eurgh, no. Stop. You’re wasting your actors potential.
