Strong and remarkable
I usually write a review only when my opinion drastically differentiates from what I find already contributed – when there’s a dire need to tip the scale. And there is one here, to save this incredible film from the lynch mob.
This atmospheric dark period romance set in an unusual stage has a lot of human drama to offer. And this is what S. Bier is known at excelling. And pouring it on, which obviously irritates some part of the audience. But it is all done with a lot of taste for timing, with a good and fresh modern editing which disposes of most needless parts of the action and instead rather reserves that time for us to think about it all during the breaks of foggy Smoky Mountains scenery. (Obfuscation plays a leading role here, and this landscape couldn’t be a better choice.)
Film is layered with appropriately somber music used/mixed with subtlety, and likewise its gorgeous photography has been wonderfully appreciated by the edit which understands its visual potential. This is one of those rare instances where a pattern of hand-held closeups doesn’t seem gratuitous, but does manage to bring us closer to the characters. Beside this being the result of the strong characters themselves, it is also a combination of a slower, not-frenetic pace, with a lot of static masters too.
While there might be some unbelievable decisions the characters make in this story, we need to remind ourselves that instead of treating this as a negative, these are the emotional extremes we should be welcoming, in an emotional rawness which needs appreciation. At the end, it is an emotional and symbolic theater in which all the elements and symbols have and live to deliver their wonderfully intertwined meanings.
Big Epic Movie. Big Stars. Delivers Bigger than Big!
Serena is Hollywood at it’s best. It doesn’t disappoint from beginning to end. It’s easy to follow, visually stunning and ends up being so suspenseful I was on the edge of my seat paralyzed and shaken up considering what could, would and did occur. Jennifer Lawrence makes me want to give her a kiss, however in Serena is it a kiss of death? She plays this complicated 1929 beauty with haunting reality. Bradly Cooper plays his part perfectly. He’s a powerful presence whenever on screen. This guy is one of the best leading men around. He’s a modern day Paul Newman, which brings to mind how this movie is much like big movies of Hollywood’s “golden age.” Movies with great actors starring in big movies I’d anticipate seeing at weekly outings to the “show.” Seldom disappointed with what I experienced on the big screen. Serena is a movie of that caliber. My big screen is in the comfort of my home,Serena miraculously streamed. With a high quality, carefully crafted movie like Serena I am perhaps more satisfied with the movie’s entertainment experience than back in the old days.
