Re: Movies Seen In 2013

Melancholia - Amazon Prime app via Apple TV - Ok, so I get this is some existentialism look at life but couldn't this movie be just a little more coherent? I wanted to see this for a long time, especially after seeing Another Earth. I liked Another Earth but this, this was only mildly entertaining. My main issue was with Kirsten Dunst, she was just the wrong actress's for her role. I read some of the other actresses considered for the role and if any of them were in the part, it would have been wholly better. Don't get me wrong, I like her as an actress. However some actors can stretch for parts but she isn't one of them. She also stood out in the family dynamic, the whole rest of her family was British but she was not. Unless I missed an explanation, it just seamed really odd. The rest of the actors were really good in it, well as good as you can be with a convoluted story as this one.
