Too Close to Home?
As I anticipate my coming milestone birthday, the big seven-oh, I for some weird reason decided to watch Some Kind of Heaven. I guess I am curious about how different people handle the challenge of ageing gracefully. Well, now I kind of wish I hadn’t watched it as it left me feeling pretty depressed.
But I think it’s because of the way the film was done, i.e., the characters the writer and/or director chose to focus on. Two of the women just seemed so sad it was awful. A couple of the men, too, were struggling. I’m thinking now that the film’s producers should have included a character or two who were actually happy, just for balance.
Interestingly, though, the people who seemed the most troubled – Reggie and Anne, and Dennis, had histories that preceded and led up to their current troubled states shown in the film. I guess one of the conclusions one can draw from the film is that you carry your problems with you, i.e., a change of venue doesn’t solve the deeper issues.
Bottom line: it was very well done but I would have liked more information about each character as well as about the place itself. Also, I wish there had been at least one resident who was content.
Fun, weird, sad- very impressive
I was very pleasantly surprised by this little gem. It feels like Errol Morris directed a Todd Solondz script. The fact that this is a 20 something year old’s first feature is really exciting, as this guy has a whole career’s worth of work ahead of him. Absurdity has never been so humane.
