The Cooler

Saw this tonight, in it's "Wide" release (one fucking theater, whoopdee doo). It's showing at the Paramount for anyone who wants to check it out.

Quick review:
Acting - Pretty freaking good. Best performance is Alec Baldwin, who really outdoes himself. William H Macy is pretty solid too as a down on his luck loser who makes other people unlucky. Worst acting is definitely the guy from Office Space (too lazy to look up his name), who tries to play a quasi-intelligent business type, but just looks like a retard.

Plot - Pretty liveable. Not groundbreaking, but certainly keeps you interested. I never found myself staring at the ceiling or floor, except when WHM's ass was on the screen as he's pumping his love interest. There's obviously a certain amount of incredibility to the movie, but it's suggested in the premise, so it's best just to bare with it. Some of the subplots seem a little half baked. The appearance and then dissapearance of WHM's son takes a backseat later on in the film. Kinda like the clown in King Lear, he's never heard from again.

Feel - The movie feels like a dingy strip club. It's supposed to in some ways, but the shots of Vegas still have a dank sorta feel to them. I don't know if it was a low budget thing, or intentional (some parts clearly are intentional), but the film never elevated itself above that.

Overall it's about a 7/10, maybe an 8. For sure worth checking out if you get the chance.
Lost in Translation is still playing there too for those of you living under a rock. :p

Ron Livingston

Loved his character in Sex & the City - for once they acknowledged that a man might actually find Carrie and her friends uber fucking annoying and pretentious

Huh?
I didn't give anything away this time, aside from the son thing, which is really a side plot, and doesn't seem to have any real bearing on the overall film.
