6/10: Not A Lot Of Action Here
Monday, August 2, 2021

I saw "Stillwater", starring Matt Damon-Ford v Ferrari, True Grit_2010; Camille Cottin-Call My Agent_tv, I Kissed a Girl; Abigail Breslin-the Zombieland movies, Signs and Lilou Siauvaud-this is her first movie.This movie is loosely based on the Amanda Knox story-I say loosely because I've heard that she is not too happy with it. Matt plays an Oklahoma oil 'roughneck' that travels to France to try to help his estranged daughter, Abigail. It seems that Abigail is in a French prison, accused of murdering a girl. She claims that she was framed but has been in prison for 5 years. Camille and her daughter, Lilou befriend Matt when he reaches France and try to help him in his quest for justice. Stillwater is the name of the town in Oklahoma that Matt is from. It's a study of how far a parent will go to help his daughter but it is not...

1/10: A bit touching at certain point, but overall too long, slow, and full of annoying overuse scene! Should have done better
Saturday, September 25, 2021

This film start with a man "Bill" working at the ruin site, and he went away with a car scene! As turnout, this film is about Bill decide to stay at France to clear his daughter "Allison" name, and eventually bring her back to America! Entire film full of boring conversation, and annoying overuse scene! Such as, overuse of the walking scene, overuse of the searching scene, overuse of the driving scene, overuse of the listening song scene, overuse of the staring scene, overuse of the drinking scene, overuse of the eating scene, overuse of the smoking scene, overuse of the arguing scene, overuse of the calling names scene, overuse of the saying grace scene, overuse of the translate scene, overuse of the working scene, overuse of the opening door scene, overuse of the switch on the light scene, overuse of the watching video on the tablet scene, and overuse of the visiting jail scene! Make the film unwatchable! At...

9/10: Don't let the pointy-headed "professors of film" hoodwink you into thinking
Monday, August 9, 2021

that STILLWATER is some nuanced, subtle N-E-O N-O-I-R layer cake that you'd need four college degrees to fully grasp and appreciate. STILLWATER is as hard-hat, in-you-face, blue-collar as GOOD WILL HUNTING. It deserves highest marks for warning Americans to stay out of the foreign regions that our President decreed to be "S-hole" nations, such as Italy, Greece and France. As deftly documented in STILLWATER, the latter failed country lacks the basics of Civilization, such as adequate room keys, working lights, flush toilets or a language that makes sense. Worse yet, these backwards societies go out of their way to railroad innocent Americans into tiny prison cells on trumped up murder charges at the drop of a hat. But even outside of such deplorable jails, the absolute squalor, soiled surroundings, crumbling edifices, claustrophobic confinement, musty milieu and mildewed furnishings depicted throughout this film cry out to all right-thinking U...

7/10: Search and journey for justice only it twist with discovery
Tuesday, August 3, 2021

Stillwater" is one okay drama type suspense film of a father wanting to find out the truth with a case that involves his daughter. The film is a travel seek and find one that tries it's best to fight for justice, yet I for one felt the picture to be to long and in depth. Anyway Matt Damon is Bill a blue collar rural class working dad from Oklahoma who travels to France to look into a murder case that involves his daughter Allison(Abigail Breslin) a college exchange student. And Bill believes that his daughter has wrongly been accused and serving false prison time. The investigation and search seeking reveals people and clues only to twist and leave a viewer asking questions and thinking doubt. Along the way the film is spiced up some with Bill's intimate relationship with Virginie(Camille Cottin) a French stage actress. Overall nothing great still the movie tries to be long and...

7/10: Under The Surface
Saturday, August 7, 2021

Okie Matt Damon departs his home state, as he has before, to visit his daughter, Abigail Breslin, in prison is Marseilles for killing her lesbian Arabic lover. She says she didn't do it. He believes her, but during the trial he got drunk and punched out a British journalist, which didn't help Now she has a possible lead, but her defense attorney says it's too speculative to bring to the courts. So he stays to do some sleuthing on his own , and gets involved with actress Camille Cottin and her daughter, Lilou Siauvaud.THe two main strength in this movie are Damon's performance, which is as seething under a facade of Plains States good manners as I could imagine. Two thirds of his sides seem to be "Yes, ma'am", even while the audience can see his anger and despair and yes, self-loathing simmer, never quite raising the lid of the pot. The other is...
