SHELL


DIRECTED AND WRITTEN BY SCOTT GRAHAM, THIS FILM SET IN THE RURAL HIGHLANDS OF SCOTLAND IS A BREATH-TAKING DEBUT FOR THE SCOTTISH BORN FILM MAKER. 

IT'S ANOTHER FILM WITH MINIMAL DIALOGUE BUT SO MUCH HEART AND BEAUTY THAT IT REALLY WILL TAKE YOU A WHILE TO GET OVER. THE STORY IS FORMED AROUND THE ISOLATION THAT COMES WITH LIVING SO FAR FROM SOCIETY AND AT THE HEART OF IT IS THE STRUGGLE THAT SHELL, THE MAIN CHARACTER EXPERIENCES HAVING GROWN UP WITHIN THAT SOLITUDE. THE PERFORMANCE THAT CHLOE PIRRIE GIVES AS SHELL IS UTTERLY COMPELLING, IT'S AS IF SHE WAS BORN TO PLAY THE CHARACTER. EVEN SCOTT GRAHAM WAS AMAZED AT HOW LUCKY HE WAS TO FIND SUCH A PERFECT ACTOR, REVEALING THAT HER DEER-LIKE APPEARANCE WAS SOMETHING THAT HE HAD NEVER IMAGINED HE WOULD FIND AND YET IT, YOU CAN SEE THAT IT WAS ESSENTIAL TO MAKING THE FILM. IT DOES SOUND STRANGE BUT WATCHING SHELL YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT HE MEANS. SO MANY MOMENTS PIRRIE'S GAZE REFLECTS THE OBSERVATIONAL WATCH OF DOE, VOID OF JUDGEMENT OR THREAT JUST LOOKING; JUST SEEING WHATS OUT THERE. PIRRIE IS IN VERY GOOD COMPANY WITH ANOTHER EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE FROM JOSEPH MAWLE PLAYING HER FATHER. WE SEE LITTLE OF MAWLE'S CHARACTER APART FROM HIS PLACE AS SHELL'S DAD BUT MAWLE'S PERFORMANCE IS UNTOUCHABLE. THE CONFLICT WITHIN HIM AT THE CHANGING RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS DAUGHTER IS SO QUIET THAT REALLY DOES BRAKE YOUR HEART.

THIS IS AN EXCELLENT FILM AND I BELIEVE IT'S ONE OF THOSE RARE FILMS THAT NEVER REALLY LEAVES YOU AS I STILL CAN'T SEEM TO GET OVER IT.

IT'S THE NEW YEAR - NEW DISAPPOINTMENTS AND NEW WHITE HAIRS



SO I'VE NEVER REALLY UNDERSTOOD THE WHOLE ZACH EFRON THING, NOT IN HIS HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL DAYS, NOT IN HIS RIPPED MUSCULAR DAYS AND NOT EVEN IN CHARLIE SAINT CLOUD. I MEAN I CRIED LIKE A BITCH, I'M NO HEARTLESS HAG BUT EVEN THEN, DESPITE THE FACT I'M A FIRM BELIEVER THAT THE BEST WAY TO A GIRLS HEART IS THROUGH A RIVER OF TEARS, I STILL GOT NOTHING. 

SO NOW IN 2014 I FIND OUT HES GOING TO BE IN SOME PRETTY GREAT-LOOKING COMEDIES AND ALTHOUGH I STILL SEEM TO BE IMPERVIOUS TO HIS GOOD LOOKS I DO HAVE A NEW FOUND RESPECT FOR THE MAN. IT'S LIKE THE TIME BRAD PITT FEATURED IN FRIENDS OR RYAN GOSLING DID CRAZY STUPID LOVE, OR, DARE I EVEN COMPARE IT TO THE BRILLIANCE OF CHANNING TATUM AS DANNY MCBRIDE'S GIMP. STILL GREAT.

ALL GOOD MEN ONLY MADE BETTER BY SOME CHUCKLES AT THEIR EXPENSE, WELL ALL GOOD MEN EXCEPT BRAD PITT SEEING AS HE DID STILL HAVE THAT AFFAIR.

ANY WAY THE POINT - I NEED TO GET A JOB AND LEAVE THE HOUSE INSTEAD OF POSTING CRAP ON THIS BLOG.

OH, ALSO YOUNG FRANCO'S DE NIRO IMPRESSION!
